Southern Style Inspiration!

We've all seen those Southern Belle costumes in the stores around Halloween time.
They come with those big, dramatic hats and pretty dresses that have those cupcake- like layers with lace trim, bows etc.

Taking inspiration from those costumes, Emerald Brocade Consulting created a look echoing that
Southern femininity and sophistication.

*Dress can be found at under "Abal" abaya.

The off-white square headscarf was styled into the Gypsy style hijab with the two tails wrapped around the bun area. A rectangular piece of off-white lace was tied around the front of the scarf as a delicate accent.
An off-white/cream colored turtleneck provided neck coverage for the hijab style and large flower stud earrings complimented the flowery feel.

 For that Southern Belle drama, a large beige and cream woven sunhat was placed atop the head.
The dress was accessorized with two long white beaded necklaces, one doubled up.


A cream clutch completed the look.

*We went shoe-less in the soft grass during this shoot, but you can rock a nice off-white pump or peep toe for this look.
