We are huge fans of Rachel Zoe here at AFM Style Files. I mean how could you not be, she manages to style A-List celebrities, create a luxury clothing line, write a daily fashion blog, is the spokesperson for a lipstick line, an author, and to top if all off she is a wonderful mommy and wife—all while looking fabulous doing it. Yikes, I’m getting tired just typing what I am sure is only half of her resume.
Of course there is also her highly addictive reality show on the Bravo channel, The Rachel Zoe Project. With season 4 just around the corner I decided to prepare by taking a look at some of our favorite Zoe looks for fall.
During an interview with Rachel Strugatz, fashion and style writer for Huffington Post, Zoe described her personal style, “My personal style is definitely grounded in 60s and 70s — I can’t seem to get out of it and it’s what works best for me. I love the glam bohemian thing.” Zoe’s namesake collection, which launched this year, is markedly infused with looks from her personal style… and of course perfect for fall.
We are pretty sure that Zoe lives in her maxi dresses. Of course I don’t know a single lady who wouldn’t want to live in her maxi. The maxi dress is comfortable yet chic, but being the glam-goddess that she is Zoe’s maxi dresses take it to the next level. With it’s rich brown and orange peacock print and long ruffle-cuff sleeve this peasant maxi is perfect for fall. Wear it with sky-high wedges or sexy leather booties.
Fur is a trend seen on the fall runways year in and year out. However, in recent years it has not been as popular in the mass market—until of course Rachel Zoe was seen wearing fur vests, ankle length coats, and fur shrugs almost everywhere. I’m not sure whether or not the fur in Zoe’s personal collection is real or not; a small caveat. Nonetheless I love her faux-fur vest for fall because it keeps you just warm enough without covering up the rest of your fab outfit. Plus you can wear it with seemingly anything in your closet.
I promised myself that I would refrain from using any Zoeisms in this blog, but “I die” for this Sequined Dolman Top. It has just enough sequins to add a little dazzle to your inevitably neutral fall wardrobe–without being overdone.
