Fall. It’s coming. And with it comes deliciously beautiful and decadent fall styles. My personal favorite? Alice + Olivia’s Pre Fall and Fall 2015 collections. Like most Alice + Olivia collections they’re dark, sexy, and just overall yummy. One day, Alice + Olivia you will be in my closet, one day. I’m particularly in love because these clothes look really good on pale girls with dark hair. Don’t get me wrong, Alice + Olivia’s pieces look beautiful on a variety of skin tones and hair colors (see Solange in Alice + Olivia’s lemon dress) but the sexy gothic princess vibe is right up my alley.
The thing is, Alice + Olivia has range. Designer Stacey Bendet is trying to do more than just bewitch you with dark retro style, she’ll floor you with beautiful bold prints or simple, super feminine silks. At times the designs are wonderfully outrageous. Think pure vintage gold with embroidery and lace and jewel tones. Everything that makes my heart pitter patter a bit faster. But subtle or crazy, the details are on point and eye popping. So what’s the common thread throughout all of Alice + Olivia’s collections? Attitude. Dan told me that if my dream ever comes true and I wear Alice + Olivia clothes, I’m not allowed to smile, just exude full on ‘tude. These looks are powerful. Yes, there’s a bit of whimsy but even the most whimsical piece calls for strength and confidence.
Katarina Boho Boxy Top – A little 17th century gothic goodness in that lace collar there. Both beautiful and dramatic. It’s a top that looks wonderful with higher waist skirts to emphasize the drama of the high neckline. Plus, the blouse also comes in white.
Lary Ottoman Crop Sweater & Stora Pouf Skirt – The perfect cropped sweater for all your skirt situations. The berry color is just gorgeous and the longer short sleeve style is so flattering. And the skirt, it looks like a pretty peacock, which is totally fine with me.
Lavana Tiered Fringe Suede Mini Skirt – Fringe is so in this fall! This is the ideal skirt for all your ’70s dream outfits and while I’m digging the cropped sweater here, I can imagine a really impressive long coat or vest paired with this skirt. Something to really make an entrance.
Chunky Trim Drape Top – This is such an essential every day sweater. I absolutely love it. It’s not too thick so even though it’s long it’s still flattering and has really nice draping. I’d wear it all the time.
Irma Tie Neck Silk Blouse & Jessa A-Line Skirt – I am so happy that bow neck blouses are coming back this year. They’re subtly sexy. Love the blush tone on this blouse and the silk tie paired with the pastel and black brocade skirt. There’s also a dress version of the skirt that’s lovely.
Tevin Fit & Flare Dress – You can’t see it but the back on this dress is amazing! So sexy and shows off your shoulder blades. Yes! And do I even need to point out the pockets? From the floral embroidery to the racerback style, this dress is stunning.[show_shopthepost_widget id=”953068″]
