Looks We LoveAugust 31, 2015
As we begin the transition of seasons, fashion begins to make a playful twist between the light fabrics of summer and warm fall colors. This year in particular is all about “Boho-chic”, and the key to mastering this post-summer trend is lots of light layers! Take advantage of boho’s ultra-easy style by combining fall favorites such as boots and scarves and balance them with light and breezy pieces from summer to master this trend.
We are bringing this style to life by scouring through boutiques at Destin Commons and laying out some of the easiest looks to help you ease your summer style into fall.
We’re loving this look from Apricot Lane! This ultra-bohemian style embodies all that is fall while still maintaining the light-as-air feel of summer looks. The detailing on this tassel blouse ($41) pops against the black crochet vest ($39) and really brings out an effortless ease to the outfit. Accessorize with their Hobo Fringe shoulder bag ($148) and simple drop earrings as pictured ($14) to complete the look.
Apricot Lane’s fall collection is centered around Pantone’s hottest colors for the season. Fall “displays an umbrella of accord that weaves earthy neutrals with a range of bold color statements and patterns to reflect a landscape of hope, fun, fantasy and all things natural”, and you’ll see lots of Marsala and Candium Orange throughout the boutique. In this look we are featuring the gorgeous blue beaded long necklace ($36) which really pops against the orange dress creating a truly stunning contrast.
Our next stop at Destin Commons is Francesca’s! The boutique offers an eclectic mix of carefully-curated clothing, bright baubles, bold accessories, and playful gifts that are as fun to give as they are to receive. There is always an array of new arrivals almost daily, so you’ll always discover something special and amazing on every visit. The pictured look above is a true transitional look. Combine a light chiffon top ($38) with a statement suede skirt and tie the look together with fall friendly booties like the Kaley Heeled Ankle Bootie ($48) and you are good to go with a cute and comfortable look.
Busy day of errands and a movie night with your beau later? This is a great go to look for all day comfort and just the right amount of fun to last into the evening. Just top your outfit with this adorable fringed suede cardigan and instantly boost any outfit into fall style. We decided to layer a classic little black dress to show just how easy it is to convert summer style into fall with a good statement piece. We completed the look with Francesca’s Nova Embossed Crossbody Bag ($34) and their exclusive Coachella Bootie ($48).
Next on our shopping trips list is Destin Stars. With a fantastic collection of clothes, accessories, shoes and jewelry they are bound to have just what you need to expand your wardrobe. We’re loving this look because it’s the perfect balance of chic and boho. The fringed black dress ($36.95) and booties ($49.95) add a bit of boho flair to the outfit, while a structured tote ($59.95) and soft fur vest (36.95) add some serious glamour.
This is a fabulous example of a transitional season look that embodies just the right amount of fall while still being comfortable for warmer days. Taupe is always a win in our book and this Destin Stars top ($39.95) works beautifully with the leather leggings shown ($19.95). Spice up your outfit with flirty fringed heels ($49.95) and accessorize with statement jewelry like the Belulah Belle necklace ($39) for an easy to do look that is stylish.
Our last stop on our boutique tour through Destin Commons is Luxe Apothetique. Not only does Luxe Apothetique carry all the latest fashion trends in clothing, they also have a wide range of beauty and hair products such as Morrocan Oil collection, Voluspa Candles, Jane Iredale Skin Care Makeup, and much more. You can literally consider them to be your one-stop-shop for all things beautiful. This look featured is fabulous for a day on the go, with the ever popular color ‘Marsala’ showcased on this dress ($29.95) and the convenience of this adorable studded leather backpack ($71), you’ll be productive and in style!
Our final look is a must-have for all closets! We can’t get enough of this ribbon trimmed tunic ($75) that can be dressed up or down. We decided that layering a black fringed kimono was just what was needed to take this outfit to the next level. Embrace the boho trend with this adorable studded elephant tote ($62.95) and add a pop of color as shown with a fun stone necklace ($30) all which can be found at Luxe Apothetique.
