trend report: fall 2018 folk luxe

August 7, 2018

The folk luxe trend is our favorite new take on boho chic style—an opulent, layered twist on traditional silhouettes that uses prints to grand effect, mixing them up and highlighting abstract patterns while playing with proportion. It’s a one-of-a-kind look that’s absolutely breathtaking when styled properly. And trust us…you’ll know it when you see it! The mastermind behind this new trend is none other than the fabulously inventive Becky Jantzen, and we caught up with her for some tips on how to style each of the outfits below.

Channel subtle folk luxe vibes in the office with our velvet Interlock Block Heel. Paired with denim, slacks or even a chic pencil skirt, they’re right on trend and comfy, too.

Featured Items: Connery Jacket, Paisley Blouse, Authentic High Straight, Apollo Earrings, Athena Necklace, Interlock Block Heel

A quirky mix of prints speaks to a more boho vibe. Elevate this look by wearing sleek black tights under luxurious over-the-knee boots—our new fall uniform!

Featured Items: Galaxy Blouse, Pastime Skirt, Journey Jacket, Apollo Necklace

The sheer, dark grounded Floret Blouse was made for print mixing, and you can see here that it looks just as great with the neutral-tones in the Pastime Jacket as it did with the darker plaid Connery Jacket. (Pro Tip: It looks great the Pastime Skirt and Connery Trouser, too!)

Featured Items: Pastime Jacket, Floret Blouse, V-Neck Cami, Leopard Scarf, Smolder High Straight, Apollo Earrings

A soft floral blouse can be over-the-top feminine…embrace it! Heighten the feminine energy by reaching for rich patinas or temper it with plaid and corduroy for a more everyday look.

Featured Items: Connery Jacket, Floret Blouse, Skinny Cord, Tribute Necklace, Dandy Boot

Throw on a slouchy sweater over a printed blouse for a relaxed look that captures the essence of bohemian style.

Featured Items: Step-Up Pullover, Legend Blouse, Boss Skirt

The jacket has that special boutique look: elegant details such as hand-sewn pearls add traditional luxury to a utilitarian jacket. Paired with the vibrant Thrive Top, it’s unexpected and cool.

Featured Items: Collage Jacket, Thrive Top, Authentic High Straight, Landmark Locket, Kitten Ankle Strap

The deep olive hue of the Aerial Cardigan makes the ethereal gold and light blue tones of the Cluster Cami feel more down-to-earth.

Featured Items: Cuddle Scarf, Aerial Cardigan, Cluster Cami, Zip-Back Legging

Rich, saturated colors create a high-fashion energy that goes more “folksy” with a voluminous topper for a casual, always-chic take.

Featured Items: Royal Pullover, Smolder High Straight, Cloak Cardigan, Ring Belt
