Womanista Fashion: Karen Fairchild from Little Big Town’s Fall Favorites

Stylish chanteuse Karen Fairchild has a lot going on these days. Her GRAMMY-nominated band Little Big Town released their latest album Tornado today (and y’all, it’s AWESOME! Check out the lonely, smoldering “Your Side of the Bed”), she is constantly curating gorgeous looks on her pinterest page, her band is playing sold-out shows with Rascal Flatts (check them out in California this weekend!), and she’s mom to the most precious toddler, Elijah.

Karen stopped by Womanista to give you a glimpse into her favorite must-haves for fall. Simply, fabulously, gorgeous.

Leather jacket: Collecting leather jackets is like collecting favorite albums on vinyl. They never go out of style and they only get better with time. I’ll wear them with denim but I’ll also throw it over a cocktail dress. The Acne “Rita” leather jacket with the blue shearling collar is on my list of must haves.

Booties: I’ve been addicted to booties for a while and now the selection is glorious. One of my favorites for fall is the Isabel Marant Milwaukee western boot because it feels Nashville inspired. Every country girl needs these.

Embellishment: It’s easy to find something studded or gilded to add some kick to your wardrobe this fall. Everything from denim jackets to blinged out pants. You can go subtle or full tilt, whatever you happen to fancy. I had the pleasure of wearing these gold and black Rebecca Minkoff pants to a recent event and was completely in love.

Fur:  We saw the trend last year but it continues this fall with a shot of color. There are great options available from the beautiful colorblock Elizabeth & James “Bianca” jacket to the over-the-top cranberry and white fur fest vest from J Mendel. These pieces will make a statement for sure.

Oxblood: This deep rich color can be added to your wardrobe and used like a staple. It’s easy to mix in with black, navy and looks heavenly with greys & charcoals. One of the easiest ways to introduce this color would be with the Phillip Lim 3.1 hour bag or the gorgeous Maiyet pony hair shoulder bag.

Karen, you are fabulous!
Happy fall shopping, womanistas!
xo, the Womanista

    Fabulous fall picks from one of country music’s most fashionable! I absolutely love Karen’s style. She is obviously extremely fashion conscious and ahead of the trend while her looks still come off effortless and extremely relatable to the country music listener. Every girl across America was openly wishing they could steal that shorts ensemble from the “pontoon” video. Seriously. Amaze. I love seeing artists/bands know who they are and what they love and rocking it. Love the Oxblood bag…that color is spot on! Can’t wait to hear the record…downloading now:)
    Another fab womanistas post!

    Karen is so special and has an incredible eye, good taste and the willingness to try anything! She’s also got the perfect body that basically every shape works well on! Can’t wait to buy the new record!
