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.
Jacket: Forever 21
Tank top: Target
Pants: Banana republic

Pleather bag: Gunas

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!

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. ❤
I love dark florals like this – and that’s a very fab purse too. Thanks for linking up to Visible Monday! xo
Thanks for hosting, as usual, Patti!
I love that term! “Floral noir.” Sounds so much cooler and sexier than regular old floral!
Isn’t it? And in summer, when I wear florals with a white background, I might start calling that “floral blanc.” 🙂
