Floral Noir Jacket

I’m not really jumping on the “floral noir” bandwagon. I’m just wearing a floral print jacket I already own. Until recently, I’d never heard the term floral noir. But I do like it as an accurate description of a black-background, floral print.

Floral is so sweet and summery–and it’s not that nice in Seattle yet. So the black background makes florals a workable pattern for winter. At least until my Camila bush starts to blossom!

I wore this jacket before in a pattern-mixing frenzy. This time, I kept the rest of the look simple (basic black) and let the jacket steal the show.

Well, I couldn’t resist carrying my Gunas bag. It’s yellow and white–two of the colors in the jacket–and brightened things up a notch. It’s two-tone, but that’s not exactly a pattern, is it?

Do you wear floral patterns in winter? Have you embraced the floral noir trend?

Oh, I’m linking up with Visible Monday at Not Dead Yet. See what everyone else is wearing!

  1. I used to have a cool floral noir blouse, cropped tank top and matching bellbottoms in the 60s (I made the outfit myself) only I didn’t know it was called floral noir. I love the black background of your floral print jacket, it looks striking with your black top and pants. ❤

  2. I love dark florals like this – and that’s a very fab purse too. Thanks for linking up to Visible Monday! xo

    I love that term! “Floral noir.” Sounds so much cooler and sexier than regular old floral!

Let's chat! I love hearing from you:
