I recently filmed a Tucson Fall Lookbook on my channel, you can watch that here! I picked outfits that spoke to some trends I have been seeing all over social media. This blog post is going to speak about the styles I chose to display in my video and the inspiration behind the outfit choices as well.
Disclaimer: I wore my turquoise jewelry with every single outfit because…turquoise.
Accessories: I wore an orange bandanna as a neck tie, a black round hat, and black closed-toed slides. Neck ties have been seen everywhere and I personally am a huge fan of adding them to my outfits. You can never go wrong with a neutral colored round hat…honestly I don’t think they will ever go out of style. The black closed-toed slides resemble the minimalist/androgynous look fashion’s pendulum has been swinging towards lately, which I love.
Top: I wore a cropped knitted sweater with bell sleeves, knitted sweaters with exaggerated details are super on trend this Fall/Winter season. I chose this orange-yellow color because it reminded me of this time of year.
Bottom: I wore thrifted navy slack pants, I honestly think owning a pair of nice slacks is something everyone should have in their closet. They are so fun to dress up or dress down and they can also really elevate your ensemble.
Sonny & ’75
Accessories: Cabby hats…you can’t seem to get away from them this season and why would you? They make any outfit look great! I absolutely love these hats (which is why I wore two different ones in this lookbook). They remind me of 70s style which is an era I truly love for their fashion inspiration.
Top: I wore a 60s vintage boho dress which I absolutely fell in love with. The pattern was something that really caught my eye, then the color, then the shape. Once I saw the entire dress I was in love.
Bottom: I wore vintage clogs to tie together an attire of 70s nostalgia. I love wooden shoes, they can take any outfit to the next level. They also add originality which is another reason why I love them.
Top: I wore a Free People floral printed blouse. Floral micro-print is also a craze this season which I tried to resemble. This blouse is amazing, it can look like an entirely different shirt if you leave the neck unbuttoned. The print and cut of this top is so beautiful and also reminded me of Autumn, I had to style it into this lookbook.
Bottom: Suede brigade! I love the feel and look of it (artificial of course), incorporating this material is perfect for this season. I wore a camel suede wrap skirt and Jeffery Campbell Lita inspired shoes. These paired together make a statement, the color scheme of these two items with the blouse really give me Thanksgiving vibes.
Plaid On, Plaid Off
Accessories: I wore an authentic silver beaded necklace that adds simplicity and a traditional South-Western appeal. This piece of jewelry compliments my turquoise items very well and looks great with almost anything.
Top: I wore an 80s Pendleton plaid blazer, the shoulder pads on this jacket are amazing by the way since I am a fan of structured shoulder looks. I paired this with a plaid vintage mod dress to resemble the current trend of playing with repetitive patterns.
Bottom: I wore a classic staple in any person’s Fall/Winter closet, black tights. Since these tights were footed I wanted to wear open-toed mules to display the “socks with sandals” fad that has been around lately. These shoes are denim by the way which is also a current material being used in multiple uses of accessories.
Accessories: Here is the other cabby hat I think I’ve worn a hundred times since I’ve purchased it. It looks so great with everything and adds color to neutral outfits. I also feel like this hat makes me look like a newsgirl so…there’s that.
Top: I wore a vintage embroidered blouse that I love because of its delicacy. I love taking vintage pieces and modernizing them through styling. Doing this gives your outfit originality and creativity, it also is a lot of fun seeing how you can change the look of something from the past. I also wore a boxy paisley jacket, this pattern, these colors, and the simple details of the silver buttons caught my attention while I was thrifting. Overall this jacket was an amazing find and I had to pair it with my green cabby hat because the color tones are similar.
Bottom: I wore ombre dip dyed fringe jeans, these jeans have to be one of the most on trend items in this whole lookbook (aside from my favorite hats). I have seen these everywhere and I thought they added a fun touch. I also wore black heeled booties which are a staple in my closet. These boots are such a classic shape and can be versatile with the ability to dress up or down.
