elle.com a to zee: best of fall

Inspired by Elle Creative Director Joe Zee’s 26 favorite fall trends, we’re bringing you a great trend every day, from A to Z.


S stands for Sophisticated Florals, the classic print that’s autumn-appropriate in moody tones and luxe fabrics.

Rebecca Taylor gives us both feminine (the fluttery Dandelion Print Dress in a wintry black and white) and sexy (the Rosie Cami Dress, pictured above, a great entry in the innerwear-as-outerwear category). Elie Tahari’s Carrie Dress is elegant and ladylike in a vintage-inspired print, while Diane von Furstenberg’s Olivette Dress (pictured) is a little more daring with an open back.

Looking for just a hint of floral? The trend’s popping up on accessories too. A cozy merino wool wrap, like Virginia Johnson’s Peony Scarf, is striking in an oversized print, and fall’s favorite color combo, purple and black, suits Antik Batik’s Ares Bag (pictured). And to boldly put this trend front-and-center, don Kenneth Jay Lane’s Enamel Flower Necklace, the ultimate statement piece.
