This look from Lana instantly evokes careless luxury. It made me imagine the present-day incarnation of a free-spirited rocker chick, with bohemian sensibilities, urban roots and a star's paycheck - a kind of modern Stevie Nicks. Following that train of thought takes us right to the oh-so-trendy 70's and allows us to metamorphosize this first-days-of-fall gypsy fierceness into early-winter garb. Step 1: ditch the cutoff shorts for some wide-leg or flared denim (bootcut will make the grade too, if that's what you have handy). Next up: the top. Skip the tank and go for a blouse - a v-neck was a Stevie staple, but a retro-come-current high-necked piece will do flawlessly as well. Unique, offbeat details, like bell or cutaway sleeves are strongly encouraged! Also consider modern interpretations, such as tulle cuffs, ruffles or a lace-up poet's blouse. Don't forget about prints either: paisleys or classical florals will work perfectly here. Fabric is important in this context - lean toward flowy and drapey pieces, like silks, knits or lightweight cotton. The final, crucial piece is your topper. Choose a longer piece, such as a trench coat or duster. A luxe fabric, such as faux fur, velvet, or corduroy will convey the glamorous-underground dynamic. Alternatively, reiterate the drape and movement of your blouse with a knit piece (if you're using a casual long cardi, pair it with a more formal blouse to elevate the look and create that feel of casual opulence), or ruffled trench. Complete the look with a tonal choker and swap those OTKs for chunky-heeled ankle boots to cement the 70's vibe. Happy fashioning, loves!
