Drop waist dresses, cross over pants, and the perfect fall cardigan. The Southwest Story collection is ready for campfire nights. This collection is from the September 2014 issue of Burda Style magazine.
Mix styles in a Drop Waist Tunic Dress in a tribal print with a kicky pleated skirt. Hardware rivet bands provide unexpected contrast to the soft shape and boho patterned fabric.
Piece this Wrap Cardigan together with jersey, chunky knit, and boucle. You can customize it for more or less warmth with your fabric choice for a one of a kind cozy cardi. It’s finished with a big shawl collar and sash belt.
Contrasting side panels are an easy way to create the illusion of a slimmer figure in this Paneled Dress. Make this effect more fun with two different prints… light for the middle and darker for the sides. The neckline is embellished with safety pins.
The Jersey Dolman Top is an easy make to wear everywhere. This dolman top has a round neckline and cuffed sleeves. It looks just as good with leggings as it does with detailed bottoms like the Crossover Pants.
Prairie dresses were so popular in the seventies. This straight cut Pleated Drop Waist Dress is a simplified version with a pleated skirt, 3/4 length sleeves, and a slit neckline with rivet trim.
The Top with Hip Tie makes a relaxed top sexy with lace panels at the neck and sleeves and a gathered waist. The hip tie is a flirty finish.
A godet and crepe de chine have beautiful movement in this quick to sew Skirt. The flared silhouette fits perfectly with slim tops. Tuck in a jersey tee and wear it with knee high boots.
A collection loosely inspired by the southwest has just enough flair from a few rivets, animal or southwest prints, and patchwork designs. Layer these pieces with boots, silver and turquoise jewelry, and a smoky eye look for laid back fall style.
