This fall, fashion brings forward earthy colors and bold prints that offer style lovers new alternatives.  Native American influences for years have constantly maintained its presence in the fashion arena. Today is no exception.  From ankle fringe boots, to feather brass necklaces, it fun and unique fashion statement pieces are still fall fashion essentials.

American Indian patterns tend to stand out, so we suggest to try not to mix them with other busy prints.  Play them up by pairing a faux fur jacket or sweater with solid colored items.  Additionally, treat this trend with a vintage feel; therefore go for materials with a natural feel as suede.  Finally, forego any flashy add-ons as high heels, and preferably select flat boots or better yet, suede moccasins.

BB Dakota - Boswick $130.00

As for jewelry, items made up of silver, brass or gold materials with a hand-crafted feel, swiftly complements this southwestern style.  So have fun with it, but know your limits, if you look at the mirror and Pocahontas is staring back at you, you know you have crossed the line.

Recently Miami locals have been enjoying a wonderful but sadly, short cold weather period.  Of course, many take this unique opportunity to bring out all of their winter gear that for months haven’t been able to see the light of day.  Recently, I have been obsessed with a beautiful hand woven alpaca poncho that I obtain on my last trip to Ecuador. Its fine craftsmanship and combination of lively colors, makes a great combination to Miami’s showstopper fashion.

Their fresh feel and easy cover up capabilities, makes ponchos a fun and unique alternative to jackets and sweaters. If traveling to Ecuador is out of the way, you can still enjoy more demure variations by Michael Kors as the one shown below.
