Rodarte shows that burgundy and marsala shades are not limited to Fall. This nymph-esque embellished dress is given a side of Eighties edge with metallic high boots. The highlight for us, however, is the clever scarf layering. The embellished scarf and the printed scarf make a statement clash. Recreate this with the clashing print animal wool scarf.
