Flowers adorn even the most beautiful wintry dresses, but this time the shades are dark and dusky to match the colours of the season. Think flowers are on vogue just in spring? Think again. Many fall winter collections have patterns, embroideries and details that recall those elements of nature in different shapes. My pick of the best, displayed below, are dresses from the Etro and Giorgio Armani collection which show off those romantic details. Flowers became also huge details on accessories like the Valentino bag on the left and the Valentino shoes. Get the flower mood with some highly embellished item!

But in this case, items are all adorned with the special paisley print which is the signature of the brand. Today I pick this velvet dress from the fall/winter 2010/11 collection. The prints on a noble fabric like velvet donate a sophisticated appeal, while the most fashionable colour of the wintry collection, ochre, is employed on the decorations. Short sleeves make it suitable with a blazer or maybe with a long coat. Just a classy choice for who likes being classy and elegant at all time.
