How to Wear Fall Florals Like Kristen Stewart and Alexa Chung


Kevin Winter

As a wise fictional character once deadpanned, florals for spring aren’t exactly groundbreaking. But a feminine bloom come the colder months? Now that is worth talking about. Over the past few weeks, actresses like Nicole Kidman, Priyanka Chopra, and Claire Foy have been dressing up in moody floral prints, despite the fact that springtime blooms are but a distant memory as we head towards dropping temperatures. The key to making the print work for fall? Opt for florals paired with dark backdrops, like Alexa Chung at this week’s Erdem x H&M launch celebration, wearing a piece from the floral-heavy collection. Or for something a bit tougher, look to cool trousers, a la Joan Smalls in Michael Kors and Kristen Stewart in an Antonio Berardi suit. Of course, you could always go with what is shaping up to be the season’s must-have dress: a punchy blue and yellow number by Altuzarra, as worn by Rosamund Pike.
