The enchanted mood this year is all about 70s romanticism – time to channel one of our favorite style icons: Stevie Nicks. To keep the look contemporary, contrast the femininity of the vibe with rustic accents, menswear-inspired oxfords, or biker boots.  Think velvet and distressed leather accents, lace and button-down shirts, floaty fabrics with cozy knits.

Mixing Prints –

  • Pick prints in the same color family. Think colors that complement, they don’t necessarily have to match.
  •  Use a “classic” print (stripes, polka dots, houndstooth) as if it were a solid. Pair it with a bolder or more abstract print.
  • For those who want just a pop of the trend, try pairing a printed scarf or headband with a printed dress for just a touch.

Styled It –

  • Keep accessories natural. Swap out traditional metallic jewelry for lush fabrics. Lace, ribbon, and velvet all play perfectly into this season’s must-try look.
  • This is a great time to try the accessory trend of the moment: chokers. The runways have been filled with ornate chokers, but a simple velvet ribbon or delicate bow are our favorites.
  • Layer on the accessories. Try tying a scarves in your hair, or layer a chunky one under a sweater.

Layering It On –

  • Fall’s best styling trick is layers, and this year we are amping up the volume. Experiment with unexpected pairings for pops of chic surprises.
  • Try a chic turtleneck under dresses or chiffon blouses or sweaters under jackets.
  • Mix textures. A cozy knit over a chiffon piece can transition the otherwise light garment into a perfect fall look.
