4. menswear-inspired items such as bowties, bowler and trilby hats, and tailored blazers
5. decorative embellishments including feathers, crystals, bows, fringe, pleating, and ruffles
6. sharp tailoring and high volume in the hip/thigh area as well as sharp shoulder silhouettes
7. statement headpieces, jewelry, and belts
8. sculptural footwear (think cut-outs, architectural details, and pointy toes)
9. deconstructed knits and distressed denim for a worn-in, DIY look
10. modern, luxe bohemian (aka "foho", which comes from folk + boho)
11. unique, handmade pieces (see for endless examples)
12. sensible shift dresses + kitten heels (inspired by Michelle Obama)
