Fall doesn’t mean you need to push florals and colorful prints to the back of your closet. In fact, Kelly Ripa is making a case for stunning fall florals with her latest series of figure-flattering dresses.
The Live with Kelly and Ryan co-host regularly posts her outfits on Instagram using the hashtag KellysFashionFinder, and as of late, the 49-year-old is embracing flower power. Most recently, Ripa donned a statement-making lavender Magda Butrym mini dress, but the stylish host also took on fall blooms with a subdued navy Shoshanna dress. She doubled down on the trend with a bohemian midi silhouette from Saloni, proving just how versatile a floral print can be any time of the year.
From jewel-tone motifs to minimalist options, florals can suit any style, and as long as you opt for a cinched-in waist, the print will never overwhelm you. Plus, you barely need to accessorize — it’s the quintessential throw-on-and-go look. It's a little bit '70s, a little bit unexpected and an easy way to spruce up your fall wardrobe. Shop our Kelly Ripa-inspired picks below.
