Fall (autumn) is in the air, which means cooler temperatures, pumpkins, colorful leaves and beautiful blooming summer flowers will be going away. So, how do you keep the sunshine, summer, flower spirit in fall? By dressing in fabulous fall floral prints.
Fall is one of the four temperature seasons. Fall marks the transition from summer to winter, in September (Northern Hemisphere) or March (Southern Hemisphere), when the duration of daylight becomes noticeably shorter and temperatures cool down considerably. One of the main features of fall is the shedding of leaves from various trees.
Floral prints look summery, airy, whimsical and light, bringing pure sunshine and joy to the wearer, much like when you receive a bouquet of fresh flowers.
Flower Fun Fact: A flower, sometimes known as a blossom, is the reproductive structure found in plants that are floral. The biological function of a flower is to effect reproduction, usually by providing a mechanism for the union of sperm with eggs. In addition to facilitating the reproduction of flowering plants, flowers have long been admired and used by humans to bring beauty to their environment.
