While many decades were referenced on the fall runways, one period—the 1940s—stood out among the rest thanks to brands like Miu Miu, Louis Vuitton, and Marc Jacobs. Naturally, the look has now made its way onto the streets, which brings us to today’s Style Guide story. The lovely lady above was spotted recently on the streets of New York City wearing a floral dress and glitter-embellished Miu Miu booties. The key to her look is simple. Instead of channeling the era from head to toe, our muse has picked out one 40s-inspired piece—her dress—and then paired it with accessories that have a modern aesthetic, be it her glitter booties or her hoop earrings.
