GYPSY QUEEN:

A borrow from the 60’s and 70’s boho chic, GYPSY QUEEN, is an elevated take on this bohemian style with a touch of glam and a lot of drama. Layerings of third-piece jackets, from Aigner, to belted long languid dresses from Rokh, were new ways to wear this trend. My favorite look is the Altuzarra with the mini wrapped paisley print skirt, fairisle sweater and those hot over-the-knee high boots. The model is slaying in this outfit.

Paisley prints are surfacing up as the leading pattern, which I haven’t seen since the 90’s. Currently they are colored in vibrant hues, such as mustard and orange spice. This traditional print will be important for the GYPSY QUEEN trend. It won’t be the last of it too. I see versions of it large and small scales with decorative embellishments in upcoming seasons .

BOHO ACCESSORIES

When it comes to accessories, keep in mind of gold accents, printed head scarves, over-the-knee high boots, fringe and lots of suede, especially those Zimmermann boots! Just don’t go too crazy or you’ll look like Captain Jack Sparrow from the Pirates of The Caribbean.

QUEEN “E”

Let me explain why I am the QUEEN.

I managed to create this outfit without any new purchases by shopping in my own closet. You got that right! These pieces were more than a year old and some even as old as 10 years, like the gold belt. As I invest in good quality clothing, I manage to wear them over and over again. Tip: Quality over quantity.

GOLD ACCENTS

When I learnt about the GYPSY QUEEN as an upcoming trend, I was in a hunt for paisley prints. I found this 60’s silk twill drop waist dress from a local vintage shop. It came with a matching waist tie, but felt that might be a bit much. So I ditched it and opted for a gold metallic obi belt.

The gold lame pleated skirt was layered underneath the dress, to add gold accents complimenting the belt. You probably thought it was part of the dress, if I hadn’t mentioned it. Am I right?

“Layering Queen” is what my friends call me. So of course, I threw a cozy ivory cardigan over it. For colder temps, I would layer a navy turtleneck underneath or put on an oversized puffy coat.

As I mentioned the importance of suede earlier, I paired slouchy suede tall boots to mix in texture. Basically any pair of tall boots would work here. In case you want to feel a bit risky, try a pair of saturated colored boots in a complementing pop color, like deep rust or marine blue.

Collectively, GYPSY QUEEN, can be easily styled together with 70’s trend, which I wrote previously on Fall Trend Series Vol. 2. They mash up well, such as culottes and a bow tie paisley print. Or a pair of slouchy boots and a long flowy floral dress. Therefore, the possibilities are endless. You can basically wear two important trends all in one outfit. Major WIN!

Stay tuned for the next and final Fall Trend Series Volume 4, coming up next week. Can you guess the trend?

XX, E.
