This One Trend Proves Miranda Priestly Wrong

In “The Devil Wears Prada,” Miranda Priestly rolls her eyes and uses her cutting sarcasm in the now infamous/over-quoted line, “Florals for spring? Groundbreaking.” And while the movie was fictitious(-ish), Miranda had a point. Everyone and their mom (literally) wears florals come springtime.

But rocking your favorite bloom in fall? Now that is groundbreaking. Sure, the whole concept seems counterintuitive. Isn’t this the time of year where flowers go to die? While the buds from summer may in fact be shriveling up, that doesn’t mean you can’t bring some blooms of your own to the colder weather.

Check out these eight ways to wear floral to bring some flower power to your fall wardrobe! Take that, Miranda!
