Trend to Try: Dark Florals

Trend to Try: Dark Florals(Source: FameFlynet Pictures)We love a girly, garden-variety flower print as much as the next gal, but sometimes find that bright blooms can skew a little bit saccharine. The dark florals that have been popping up on Hollywood chicsters are a different story, however. These black-based patterns—seen on dresses, jumpsuits and more—feel decidedly urbane and just the slightest bit moody. Could they be summer’s most sophisticated print?

On Nikki Hilton, the answer is yes. The socialite recently stepped out in a petal-print mini dress and leather jacket.

Dressed up with metallic shoes, it’s cocktail party-ready. Paired with the season’s de rigeur white Birkenstocks, and the look is laid-back cool.
