In Cinda Williams Chima's series The Heir Chronicles, those with magical powers are known as the Weir. To celebrate the magical fantasy world, its magical guilds, and the upcoming release of the final book in the series The Sorcerer Heir, The Lovely Side is participating in the World of Weir blog tour with a Weir-inspired style board and giveaway.
I'm constantly drawing inspiration for fashion from characters in books. So as one of the first stops on this magical, mystical blog tour, I put together a style board based on The Warriors. These strong, elite fighters with their magical weaponry are associated with the color blue. I incorporated deep shades of blue, weaponry-inspired jewelry, and warrior-worthy leather accents. Here's how to work a little warrior style into your daily wardrobe...
Warrior Wear By Day:
Dark blue skinny jeans tucked into brown leather riding boots immediately gives off a huntress vibe. A loose blue tank, subtle sword earrings, a leather jacket, and scarf with a medieval-looking print pull the adventurous look together.
Alternatively, a comfy cotton dress in steely gray allows for the warrior woman to move freely. A blue corduroy jacket and blue suede booties make it a perfect ensemble for fall. And arrow-inspired accents bring the outfit full circle.
Warrior Wear By Night:
If looks could kill, no warrior lady would need her magical weaponry in this chic get-up. A motorcycle jacket lends a bit of edge to a flowy, feminine, midnight blue dress. Over-the-knee and laced up, these black leather boots are made for walking - or running. And you might just sneak a peek at diamond printed, sheer black tights. Cinch the waist with a thick, steely gray belt and accessorize with a chainmail-inspired necklace.
If gilt suits you better, consider starting with a metallic top reminiscent of a sword's burnished hilt. Tuck sleek black skinny jeans into black combat boots and cover up in the fall air with a deep blue leather jacket. Shield-inspired earrings and a long sword pendant necklace complete the killer look.

More about The Sorcerer Heir
The delicate peace between Wizards and the underguilds (Warriors, Seers, Enchanters, and Sorcerers) still holds by the thinnest of threads, but powerful forces inside and outside the guilds threaten to sever it completely. Old friends and foes return as new threats arise in this stunning and revelatory conclusion to the beloved and bestselling Heir Chronicles series.
The Sorcerer Heir is a self-contained story, accessible to readers just discovering the Heir series, but loyal fans will be rewarded by visits from characters they love (and love to hate) from the earlier installments. Readers will be glued to their seats through riveting fight scenes, deadly political machinations, burgeoning romance, and the unfolding intrigues of a contemporary magical world.
Those with magical powers in The Heir Chronicles series by Cinda Williams Chima are known as the Weir. The World of Weir blog tour leads up to the release of the can’t-miss series finale, The Sorcerer Heir (in-stores October 21st) by celebrating the magical fantasy world and the five types of magical guilds. Follow along for playlists, nail art, and more inspired by the series, plus exclusive excerpts from the upcoming finale.
