SOUTH COAST PLAZA
FALL TREND: FLORALS
Layering season calls for sexy floral lace worn in all kinds of ways. Saint Laurent brings all the drama with gloves that keep the pattern going to the tips of your fingers. We love this look topped with a cropped leather jacket.
Level 2, Between Jewel and Carousel Courts
The floral brocade that ruled sixties cocktail hour shines with luxe updates from Valentino with gold logo V details on its chic and convenient patch pockets. Give a nod to its heyday with a dainty heel or zip around town in classic white kicks like Adidas Stan Smiths.
Level 2, Nordstrom Wing
Get layer-ready with go-to sweaters. Dior brings the romance of wildflowers and vintage-style embroidery to a luxurious cashmere sweater, finished with its signature logo that looks lovingly knit at home.
Level 1, Nordstrom Wing
This fall wardrobe must embodies the kind of contrast we crave: luxurious details in a laid-back shape, black velvet and white embroidery, and a cardigan cut with jacket weight. We bet you can toss it on over just about anything.
Level 1, Between Jewel and Carousel Courts
A done-up nod to the beloved lace-trimmed cami of the early 2000s, this cami remixes a classic with an eye-catching blue blossom print and plenty of neckline lace. Wear solo on those unseasonably warm days or layer under a lived-in denim jacket.
Level 1, Carousel Courts
Reformation gives a fanciful floral print a sexy twist with a thigh-high slit and sweetheart neckline that begs you to do anything but stay in—a welcome wardrobe addition for those who want to keep summer’s night-out vibes alive.
