   In early March of 2017, fashion prodigies and industry elites crowded into runway shows and scoured social media to witness the visual masterpieces that would shape wardrobes for the upcoming season of fall and winter.  

  The runways revived the clothing of the 70s, initially made popular by Stevie Nicks, Debbie Harry, and Bianca Jagger, which is commonly associated with large faux fur coats, jewel-toned statement pieces, and the utilization of velvet. With the temperature dropping to a “frosty” 65 degrees in California, oversized faux fur coats paired with jewel-toned turtlenecks, velvet skirts, and bold booties provide a warm outfit alternative to larger and frumpier clothing…and a time machine to the seventies, while also channeling a hint of Margot Tenenbaum.

  The key this season is color blocking, which allows an individual to create a statement outfit while wearing minimalistic pieces. With the mixing of cool and warm tones, color blocking provides variance against the time-honored neutral tones of fall.

  As a nod to the pioneers of the past, Western-esque fashion referred to as “prairie polished” has sparked interest with so-called city slickers. Fringe, boots, and denim, the staples of the south, have begun transitioning into the wardrobes of those on the west and east coasts.
