Swann Style: Home is Where the Heart Is

Home is where the heart is. And there’s a closet there too. What should go inside of your closet as we transition from summer to fall? If we turn to New York Fashion Week, which is currently underway, we see a variety of beautiful things to inspire our wardrobe.    The fall fashion collections are influenced by a range of artists and musicians such as David Bowie, the concept of self-exploration, and life from decades of the past; namely the seventies and eighties.    This fall will feature velvet in clothing, shoes, and handbags. Statement choker necklaces will be popular. Bold furs in wild colors and prints are being shown on the runways from New York to Milan and Paris. Classic menswear pinstripes, which are flattering and slimming for every body shape, are in vogue. Bright colors, especially pink and yellow, are featured everywhere. Embroidered, metallic, and multi-color block heeled boots will liven up the dreariest of fall days. And, we look forward to seeing how the colorful artistic patterns of the seventies and eighties will be worn.    We’ll attend San Diego Fashion Week later this month and report on what we see there. In the meantime, let’s take a look at what Elaine is wearing.    Elaine is wearing a fuschia dress by Ivanka Trump. Her signature pearl accessories include a necklace, bracelet and earrings from Macy’s.       Photographer,  Jackie Coronado        Stylist,  Lyndell Werling    Hair and makeup, Ahsante Lee Hair Unit by,  Hair Are Us

Swann Style: Timeless Pearls

Welcome to the Elaine Swann Style Blog! We look forward to sharing not only what Elaine is wearing with you, but also style tips and fashion advice.

It is no secret that Elaine’s favorite gem is pearls. Throughout history, pearls have been one of the most desirable and valued gems. The key role pearls played in civilization is reflected in a myriad of religious and mythological references. In fact, due to their scarcity and value, there was a time when only nobility was permitted to wear pearls.

Pearls will be one of this fall’s hottest trends predicts The Cut, New York Magazine’s online fashion newsletter. While wearing pearls may come and go for some women, check back often for inspiration from Elaine Swann on how to style pearls in many diverse looks.

Ultimately, as Jackie Kennedy Onassis famously stated, “Pearls are always appropriate.” We couldn’t agree more.
