Modern Journey

 

 
Photos by L.G. Patterson

This fall’s fashion trends, inspired by the elegance of yesteryear, take us back to the days when passenger trains were the best way to get from here to there. Where else to strut in new fall fashions than a train, where you can always look back while moving forward?

Don’t be afraid to stand out in bold colors this fall. Wear blouses and dresses in rich shades of red, royal blue, teal and magenta. Mix and match classic, elegant looks with whimsical items such as a stunning piece of jewelry or a sleek pair of shoes. Create a romantic yet strong outfit by juxtaposing fabrics in tweed, silk or leather. For a special occasion, wear jewelry with dramatic jewels, crystals or diamonds.

From stylist Laura Dresser:

For this photo shoot, I was inspired by train travel and the concept of being on the move. I wanted to showcase fall fashion trends with accents of nostalgia. I incorporated collectable pieces such as vintage hats, fur coats and luggage to create a romantic, historical feel.

The Columbia Star Dinner Train provided the perfect backdrop for a blend of past and present. This train is a romantic setting to sip wine, enjoy your friends’ company and gaze out at the Missouri countryside.
