For some reason, this time of year always comes with dreams of fancy getaways and worldly travels. Perhaps I’m chasing the warm weather or just ready for another escape from adulting.
While jet-setting is always on my mind, I feel less of an urge this year because of the worldly fashions I’ve been studying for fall/winter 2016-’17. Designers always draw inspiration from around the globe, but this year’s influences seem to be stronger than ever, specifically those from the Tibet region of China, just on the northern side of the Himalayas.
Tibet is rich in culture and color, making it perfect for the autumn season. The runways were graced with ethnic embellishments, textured weaves and rich color, paired with cocoon coats and tunic dresses. The bright loose fitting designs had to make an appearance in my fall/winter wardrobe, so naturally I planned a trip to Tanger to find my ethnic attire.
Here are 3 worldly looks that nearly anyone could pull off!
Look No. 1
Suede Coat | $29.99
Felt Hat | $17.99
Black Heels| $29.99
This first look had me the second I saw this suede jacket. The texture is phenominal and the color, perfect for fall! To ensure the focus remains on the jacket, I paired it with a simple white button-down shirtdress.
Simple, go-to black heels and a statement necklace to dress it up a bit and of course, for a bit of flare, you can add a trendy black felt hat. This look screams well-traveled and can all be purchased at H&M head-to-toe.
Look No. 2
Romper | $24.99
Tassel Crossbody | $24.99
Arrow Necklace | $6.00
Suede Heel | $20.00
This look is the perfect outfit for jet-setters. It’s super trendy, but also as practical as it gets. Let’s start with the bright, printed romper – The colors are so brilliant and full of life and the print is perfect for an overseas adventure.
Every well-traveled fashionista knows that a crossbody is essential when on the move. Add simple jewelry and a statement (comfortable) heel for the win. You can find this look at Charlotte Russe and H&M at Tanger for less.
Look No. 3
Pendant Necklace | $7.99
Crewneck Tee | $14.00
Skirt | $49.99
This third look is my favorite! I’m all about a midi skirt. Add eyelets and a rich marigold and I’ve probably found my token fall staple. Get ready to see this again and again (no shame)! Not wanting to take away from the opulence of the skirt, I paired it with a simple black long-sleeved tee from Gap.
The token black heels make another appearance with an elegant gold pendant necklace. The only thing missing from this simple, chic look is an authentic tibetan clutch. A bold pop of color would be the cherry on top. For a similar look, shop H&M and Gap Factory Store.
So, who has the travel bug?! I have a trip planned to Ontario, Canada this year which is sure to be a good time! While, not too distant from the states, I hear the culture is amazing and the food even better. Lucky for me, there’s also a Tanger Outlets in Ottawa not far from where I’ll be. So, if all else fails… I can shop!
