Runway Styling Tips

A lot of looking fabulous is about your styling technique. Fashion designers hire professional stylists to style their shows so looking carefully at what is being done can teach you a lot.

For instance, here is a look from the Fall 2009 Lanvin runway show.

Her outfit is simply a basic blouse and knee length pencil skirt. What is unique is the styling and accessories that accompany the look.

Here are some similar items to consider:

1. Ann Taylor Long Leather Glove, $110,
2. H&M Faux Fur Scarf,
3. Steve Madden S405 Sunglasses, $38,
4. BCBGeneration Women's Bristol High Heel, $79.98,
5. Vintage Victorian Gold Pin, Judy's Gems (, $55

I love the idea of the gloves and the fur. Fur is very big this season and if you can't afford or would rather not buy the real stuff, faux fur is great!
I showed a brooch because I'm not sure that the H&M fur has a clasp so you can always substitute with a nice pin. Vintage is great. Thrift stores are a wonderful way to find old jewelry and style your wardrobe! Alternately, you can always sift through your mother's jewelry box.
