Florals don't always have to be girly and bright—and they don't have to be worn exclusively in the spring and summer, either. For a winter-ready take, look for dark and moody florals (find them against a dark color palette or embroidered on luxe jacquard fabrics) that give the otherwise sweet print a dash of danger and drama with a hint of Victorian goth. Integrate dark florals into your wardrobe starting with our nine favorite picks, below.
1. Marc Jacobs Shirt
Wear the top buttoned all the way up, complete with a midi skirt and boots.

Layer over a turtleneck and pair with jeans for a cute weekend look.
4. Carven Dress
Maximize drama by wearing this with a black floor-length coat.
5. Rockins Scarf
Add interest to your white tee and black skinnies with a statement-making scarf instead of a necklace.

This is a chic option for entertaining at home.
7. Topshop Skirt
