The Elie Tahari fall 2011 line showed a lot of animal, appliqué, and lace layering inspiration. If you were into the burgundy velvet from the 90’s now’s your chance to bring it back from the depths of your closet! Animal print, fur, and leather were all prevalent in the line combined with fabrics that had a light sheen, transparency or texture to them. We especially enjoyed that whimsical feeling of the sheer, flowing fabrics mixed with the dark hues and fairytale-looking hair accessories. Hair and makeup were kept minimal and sophisticated with natural warm and rosy tones on the face and hair in a low, center part ponytail. To tie in some Elie Tahari inspiration into your wardrobe, try basing your outfit around an animal print piece and layering with sheer pieces, lace or leather.
