Hottest trends on cold days. Stylist: Danuta Byra

Fashion adventurous women can now wear the coolest, fashion-forward styles made just for them. The cute, 90s-chic and bohemian look is back and you'll look the part in this Band of Gypsies dress from The Attic. This Fall and anytime of the year, hip fashionistas are right in style with many contemporary looks from The Attic boutique located in downtown Bethlehem. 

The Attic Vintage Store in Bethlehem, Pa

Ok, so what are the must-haves of the month. Let's break it down, shall we?

1. Choker.-Any kind of choker. A signature 80s/90s "must-have," works really well with this Fall's bohemian frills.

The ideal choker samples:

2. A Unique Wide Brim Hat. Always extraordinary and adventureous.

5.  Combat Boots. What really makes them special, besides the hot coolness and comfort, is that they go together with almost everything. 

An All Occasion look
Really easy look

We took one of The Attic's (hot and hip downtown Bethlehem store), dresses- and discovered a galaxy of bargain-gems to go with it.  There is so much room for self-expression in the bohemian trend.

With a flirty dress, these accessories are pretty, glam and just spicy enough. Try, just try, a killer color dress like this. Now look in the mirror: Where have you been hiding?

The perfect blouse top and go anywhere bag. A fashionable closet is not complete until it contains these two things. Both can be worn again and again and are add-instant-polish pieces.  Commit to finding the right one and you'll never have fashion angst again.

A round of applause for The Attic boutique, whose amazing selection of clothes set the tone for our Fall Season editorial. Our two major influences- mix of formal and casual ladylike looks and romantic 80s glam.

The theme of this photoshoot was "Goddess," and no one could summed up that concept better than Faith with her all-eyes-on-me, gorgeous hair and heavnly blue eyes.

Rain or shine, the bottom of the choice is the mini skirt. Whether classic black or so trendy sequin theme, these skirts are oh so chic.

Try Out Pretty And Cool Things!

It's easy: Just hang up your little blackdress, jeans and t-shirts in your closet and indulge in pretty and simple white dress, wide-brim hat, distressed jean jacket and shiny heels.

Let's face it- time goes by unbelievably quickly. It is almost Fall and seems like yesterday we had the beginning of Summer. This season's long ethnic tops and dresses served as mini cover-ups that you tossed on over your suit. But towards the end of the August, it's a dress. That means you can look cute and be ready to play with jean jackets, cardigans, boots....anything that will suit last days of Summer and chillier nights

Be ready to go wherever the day takes you.  With this simple and pretty but still very sexy and girly look you will get a notice-me type of response. Especially if you wear this beautiful Badgley Mischka hat, which is always so glam. Just indulge in a few creative items: Jamie wears sexy, gold, high-heel sandals. If you want less dressy just find some with no heel.

We ended up in one of the most amazing places in Bethlehem- Moravian Book Shop! America's oldest bookstore founded in 1745. In our photoshoot adventures we're always turning to Bethlehem or other towns in our area not just for inspiration, but for collaboration. The moment Jamie and our team entered the historical book shop in the heart of Bethlehem, it was clear we had scored another hit for AFP. 

What holds us transfixed, however, isn't just the beauty of this town, stunning as it is. It is the people and multi-attitudes, awashed in native flavor and rich history of this region.

In fashion it must be understood that creative cross-pollination with the right photographer, make up artist, model and brands spells success. As a Fashion stylist I wanted to reinterpret the traditional, bohemian motifs. I wanted for this look to have its own character. Little details like adorned jean jacket and jean Steve Madden bag with logo pins, choker and sparkly earrings promote imaginative pairings and invite creativity to your everyday ensambles.

There is a newfound appreciation for DIY pieces like Steve Madden bag because they are one-of-a-kind and can become a part of the movement, and definitely are statement pieces that we can closely relate to.

Style News! Season's Trends You'll Love!

What's new for you this month?

Recoiling into the safety of well-worn concepts. There is something very comforting about clothes that have an inaudible dominance and assurance. Season's earthy, chunky cardigans paired with blush/nude or pink top and suede bottom in the similar hue.

One of the season's most popular fabrics-salt-dyed cotton- is turning up in seductive or more demure work/ play designs too. Nothing beats a simple T that can be worn with pretty much anything. Moon River T is perfect: round neckline. short sleeves, relaxed silhouette and high-low hem.

Jessica

The statement skirt by Lulus. You don't have to go full Barbie to wear this trend. Just balance your girly stuff with relaxed, unstructured pieces. Try to have more fun with your clothes and not always wear the uniform.

Always dress to feel like a woman. It doesn't mean you have to wear heels all the time. J.Crew flat sandals can be just as feminine!

Jessica sizzles with old style glamour hair styled by Danika Clevenstine. But the whole look is versatile. The idea here is to be free-almost sloppy-not perfect.

Jessica is wearing: Cardigan: H&M. Top: Moon River (sold out), Skirt: Lulus (available here), Flat sandals J.Crew, Choker: Aqua, Earrings: Neiman Marcus.
