Florals on dark backgrounds is not a new trend, but rather one in ongoing bloom.
For 2019 we are talking about large patterns with voluminous elements, spread with a distance from one another, contrasting with the powerful background. Also, as seen in Prada, some patterns are not repetitive and consist in gathering of elements in certain parts of the garment, or, show just one large colorful flower, as feminine accent on the dark surface.
Dark florals grow on many kind of clothing pisces, not only dresses –  coats, puffer jackets, as seen at Marc Jacobs, blazers and suits, scarfs. Now more than ever, is time to cultivate your own dark romance garden!

Fall Trends # 19 // Oversized Round Shouldered Coat

One of the key items of this coming season, spotted in almost every collection, is this large, oversized winter coat, typically with raglan cut or just large shoulders.
The variations and style are endless, from the retro- inspired, dreamy nude leather coat seen at Simone Rocha, to a more modern and practical approach made by Rick Owens, that brings a lot of comfort with the fleece, fluff material. Dolce&Gabana offers a coat infused with fantasy and precious elements, like the dark lace embroidery, while the coat seen in Loewe show has a more edgy, geometric design.
Either way, the oversized round shouldered coat is one of the essential keys in the winter wardrobe.
