A Guide: how to dress like a femme fatale

A Guide: how to dress like a femme fatale

It's 2020, and we're channeling big Debbie Harry energy. Here's a quick lesson on what "femme fatale means (and I can't believe I'm about to quote Webster's, but here we are):
femme fa·tale
/ˌfem fəˈtal,ˌfem fəˈtäl/
noun
  1. an attractive and seductive woman, especially one who will ultimately bring disaster to a man who becomes involved with her.

What does that mean for us? We're taking a walk on the mysterious and wild side. When picking items to do in stores, we are always mindful of the story we're telling and the wonderful humans behind those stories are Brittany, Creative Director and Head Buyer, and Heather our Visual Merchandising Director. 

Below is a little insight into the idea behind the collection, how it was put together, and a few styling ideas.

CONCEPT:

The 70's weren't just all flower power and rainbow stripe vibes so here I give you Femme Fatale. This directive is based on Debbie Harry's fashion and image. Oh, and did I mention that the coolest color combo is in? Bright, cherry red and cool, minty aqua..are you in love?? The gal that goes for this style is a little edgy and a little glam. She loves to stand out in bold stripes, polka dot, or plaid mixed with funky tees and a blazer. She loves to wear metallics and shiny things day to day; but honestly, who doesn't? This cool cat will go out of her way to make sure her faux leather jacket will look good with any outfit all year long and her boots (over the knee, combat, or simple heeled bootie) are her first and only choice for completing the look. Catch this bombshell at the local record store wearing patterned plaid pants with a red sweater and a mint-colored jacket during the day. At night, you won't miss her, she's wearing a vertical striped pant suit and edgy graphic tee with the sparkliest metallic accessories; she'll be front row at the city's last divey music venue.
