STYLE GURU STYLE: Why Fit In When You Can Fringe Out?

November 30th, 2015 at 2:10am

My obsession with the ’70s has definitely carried over into the fall season. I’m thrilled knowing that designers supported my obsession 100 percent this fall. From Tom Ford to Balmain to Burberry—no one seemed ready to hop off the psychedelic express just yet…and for good reason! With the mixture of earthy tones, varied textures and subtle, yet purposeful, details—who wouldn’t want to be a forever ’70s chick (or dude)?!

This season, I was particularly inspired by one of my all-time favorite designers. Rebecca Minkoff’s fall 2015 ready-to-wear line completely blew me away. From the funky fringe and soft suede, to the tall leather boots and wide brimmed hats, to the floral blouses and earthy-toned knits, to the feathers for jewelry and guitar straps for purse straps, her girl is a ’70s chick through and through!  I found this outfit especially awe-inspiring.  So, when a cool day finally graced us with its presence in Los Angeles, I made my best attempt to put together a similar look of my own.

I quickly became excited when I realized I had a dappled wool sweater in the same color family as the one in my favorite outfit. What’s even better, my sweater is lined with fringe…a prominent detail seen throughout Rebecca’s show. I paired the sweater with a ribbed cropped tank with a ’70s inspired lace-up front. I then threw on my trusty denim mini with button closures—another iconic ’70s trend. Instead of going for tall boots, for the “California fall” I chose my trusty taupe suede booties with a unique peak-a-boo detail under the side zippers. Lastly, I finished off the look with a wide-brim hat of my own in a ’70s-inspired camel color.
