Getting Folksy

Anyone else feeling the folksy vibe going on in the fashion world?
 One of the biggest trends this year has been embroidery.  I'm using the term trend, but embroidery is obviously a timeless craft. Embroidery, in all it's forms has been cross-culturally fashionable throughout the ages. Trend wise, embroidered looks will continue into Fall. The look evokes a tribal feel.  It is also a throwback to the Bohemian looks of the 70s and early 80s.

For Fall, try embroidered pieces in darker colors or pair lighter items in your closet with a dark blazer. In order to avoid looking like you have just left Floydfrest/Bonaroo/Burning Man, pair individual pieces with tailored items from your closet (i.e. a flowing top with tailored cigarette pants). Consider menswear and solids foils to balance out the folksy look.  It's all about the mix.

I love the embroidered coats and coat dresses featured on the runways for Fall. If you do not want to invest in a big piece, as always, consider accessories.
