STYLE GURU STYLE: Fringetastic

It’s no doubt that this fall we are going back into the era of the ‘70s. Not just the ‘70s, but also with a western twist to it. At times, it may be a little tricky combining these two trends together because you may be a little worried about looking like a go-hard cowgirl or a hippy. Rebecca Minkoff’s fall 2015 ready-to-wear collection is the perfect example of how to execute and combine these two trends in an effortless fashion.

Minkoff’s collection has been the most influential and inspiring fall runway show I have seen thus far. Her show was filled with fringe, suede, knee-high boots and western-inspired hats that had me drooling as I looked through the images, already thinking about how I could make these beautiful looks my own.

The main piece in my outfit that I wanted the most focus on and that complements Minkoff’s collection is my vintage leather fringe jacket. When I saw this rare and unique piece hanging in my garage (another steal from my mother), I fell in love. It has so much character and is a great statement piece to wear. As soon as I throw it on, I can’t resist twirling around to play with that awesome fringe! Other pieces in my look that mirrored her show were my white peasant top and my western-inspired panama hat, which is almost identical to the ones used in her show. The top, very light and trimmed in lace, adds a feminine touch to an otherwise masculine outfit. To make this look my own, I paired it with my favorite pair of Levi Brand Jeans boyfriend jeans and black booties. When it came to jewelry, I decided to keep it simple to keep the main focus on the jacket. The turquoise ring I wore was subtle, yet added the perfect pop of color.

This look was very fun to shoot because I chose a location that was more rugged and earthy than the usual San Francisco terrain. It turned out to be a windy day to shoot, but it ended up working to my advantage, as I let the wind do the work in blowing around my fringe for some awesome shots!
