How to choose NFR worthy items?

As we head into Fall, the CFR and NFR are right around the corner! Being a boutique owner, I am bringing in lots of inventory for CFR/NFR outfits! I love the anticipation and buzz that surrounds these events! 

How do you pick items for these events you ask? I've come up with a couple steps on how to best do this:

1. Both the CFR and NFR are both a couple days long. You'll have to decide on which look you're going for. Are you going for vintage vibes? More casual or glam? Deciding this will help you decide which items you need to complete these looks.

2. Choose versatile pieces. There are a number of items that you can dress up or down, this is key. Graphic tees for example. If you're looking for a more casual look, go with some bell bottoms, a graphic tee, and a fringe blazer. Want more glam? Pair your graphic tee with a sequin maxi skirt, a concho belt, your favourite necklace and fashion hat. 

3. You can mix and match fabrics, layers, accessories, etc. I think it looks so unique when someone wears different patterns or fabrics together! I'll use my outfit on the weekend for an example. I wore flare jeans, a cold shoulder velvet top and layered 2 necklaces. I could have paired this velvet top with a fringe duster for some added flare, or even a lined jean jacket. To dress it up a bit, I could have paired it with some leather pants, or a vintage skirt! 

4. Stay true to what your style is! Everyone has their own unique style, and that's what's so great about western fashion! You can style each piece so differently. Choose what you feel confident in. Confidence shines through, and don't forget to have fun!

I can't wait to see everyone's outfits, and see what trends there are in Vegas this year!

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!
