All aboard the Mayflower!

Call it a rare form of Patriotism!  We’ve seen some pilgrim inspired happenings the past few seasons, and now thanks to what we’re seeing for Fall 2012,  I think it’s safe to say the Mayflower trend is making its way to the forefront.  Slightly sexy, slightly matronly, this look is for the bold fashionistas. Of course there are ways to tone it down so you don’t look like you’re actually about to break bread with Native Americans, but I think the extremism of it is part of its charm.

Vogue takes note

 Fashion minded celebrities are taking a wack at the trend

And there is no denying Alexa Chung (one of my favorite trend-setters) has well established a sure pilgrim vibe to her personal style, both on the streets as well as modeling in editorials.  The talented model/designer, tv host/dj appears to be somewhat responsible for inspiring designers to have their fun with the Mayflower-esque look.  Heck, she even designed the dress that Evan Rachel Wood so sweetly flaunts.  She does, after all, carry it off to perfection.
