Playlist Lookbook

September 26, 2012

Whenever you need some extra fashion inspiration, try creating a playlist of your favorite artists. Or, ask someone to introduce you to new music. Below are a few fall looks we put together, inspired by some of our favorite songs.

The stripped-down acoustic style inspired this low-key, rustic, feminine look. Loose-fitting denim shirts and vintage booties balance the flouncy nature and girlish qualities of any floral dress. For those cooler fall nights try layering black leggings or wearing knee-high boots with the dress.

Buckled boots, embellished jeans, a simple tank, and heavy metal accessories are sure to make you walk tall. To go from fall to winter, add a chic bomber or leather motorcycle jacket.

This look, inspired by Florence + The Machine’s “Bird Song,” balances the whimsical beauty and minor notes of the song with the breezy top and edgy coloring. To go all out with the 70’s theme, pair with a hippie couture headband and platforms. To modernize the look, try it with skinny jeans and heels, boots or flats.

Their song, “Black River Killer” would be perfect for roadtrip through the Pacific Northwest. Embrace the rugged and natural landscape as a fantastic fall wardrobe inspiration: look comfortable and cool in distressed jeans and boots, unpolished jewelry, and an easy, flowy top. Keep the jeans on the skinnier side and the boots shorter so your legs don’t get overwhelmed by the baggier top.

Her song “The Co-Dependent” is irresistibly yummy music, with a bubbly beat perfect for getting in the groove with the neon accent trend. When incorporating this much color into an outfit, make sure to keep your jewelry and accessories neutral and simple. Later in the fall season, you can always opt for just one boldly-colored piece by swapping the top or bottom for a neutral.
