Trend Report - Outerwear for Fall

Trend Report - Outerwear for Fall

Fall is just around the corner (le sigh...) in preparation for the coming change of seasons, we've pulled together a few of our favorite outerwear trends.  All three are classics that have been updated in unexpected yet totally wearable ways.

Don't be fooled, a puffer does not have to be sporty.  It's all in the details with these elegant down jackets, snaps, belts and rose gold zippers along with sophisticated silhouettes elevate the Pacific Northwest staple to another level.

Double-faced wool is one of the ultimate luxury fabric, and there is no shortage this Fall.  The light weight makes these coats perfect for mild, Portland winters as well as easy for travel and layering.

A drapey, open cardigan is the easiest and most versatile piece you can get for Fall.  Wear them over a dress with a belt or throw them on over jeans and a tee, you seriously can't go wrong.

Easter Best

Easter Best

Easter is coming up fast, and seriously, what's not to love about it?  Any excuse to have brunch, celebrate Spring with our family and friends and of course buy a dress.  You'll continue to wear a new Easter dress throughout the spring and summer to weddings, baby showers and date nights. And best of all, most of these items can be dressed up or down, so, why not?

A beautiful and whimsical jacket over a simple, textured shift dress is a modern take on your Easter Best and Red Valentino knows how to do classics with a spunky twist.  This jacket will quickly become one of your signature pieces - pair it over dark wash skinny jeans and a crisp white shirt for a lunch meeting or throw it over a black cocktail dress for an evening event - add a delicate black suede pump or a metallic sandal to complete the holiday look.

We're loving the sixties vibe of this festive dress from 'S Max Mara.  Pair the dress with some statement earrings and a lace up flat à la Aquazzurra to finish it off.  You won't want to wait long before you wear it again, we suggest adding a shrunken leather jacket and bootie for a girls night out.

A new Easter dress is the perfect opportunity to add a little color to your wardrobe and invest in an item that can be worn to any and all of your Spring and Summer events.
