Style Tip: Fall & Winter Outerwear
We are sharing our top tips for choosing the right outerwear for West Coast living. 

Shop before the cold weather hits for the best selection!

RAINGEAR IS A MUST

Rain is not just a near daily occurrence on the island but also common when you travel during the winter. Even if you’re heading to Hawaii, you can still experience downpours; don’t be caught unprepared!
For convenience and versatility, we suggest a RAINRAP, a reversible, lightweight wrap that comes in a pouch. Bring it with you on your walks or in your suitcase.

If you would prefer a traditional jacket, you can still opt for lightweight, reversible and water-repellent styles with a fashionable edge. In either case, you’ll stay dry and stylish!
REVIEW YOUR NEEDS

One coat can work for both fall and winter, but it’s always advisable to review your needs. Many women love coats as a fashion statement and changing your coat depending on your outfit or mood is a fun way to express yourself during the colder months.
Do you like to wear dresses or long tunics? Want a dressier look? Opt for a longer length coat. If your wardrobe consists of denim and casual pants, a shorter, more sporty jacket works well. 

Are you looking for a business/career look? Go for heavier weight material and clean lines.
Wool coats with faux fur accents are another great option.

If you are planning to walk a lot or take public transportation, make sure you have a portable style that won’t weigh you down. If it’s cold enough, you might also enjoy a puffer style for comfort. If you are in a car mainly, consider a vest or poncho, which are perfect if you tend to overheat.
COLOUR IS IMPORTANT

Look and feel your best in colours and prints that express your personality. Red is an excellent choice if you have a strong personality. If you’re attending a special event, wedding or heading to the theatre, look for a unique print that stands out. 
THE TRENDS THIS YEAR

Key trends: reversible; faux fur; prints and plaids; art pieces; colours of berry, blue, and green; and neutrals of grey, black, and cream with brown and camel making a comeback.

Knee length coats and short jackets with military influence are also popular for fall.
Don’t be afraid to try a puffer coat, quilted jacket, or vest on this year. You won’t look larger; thanks to new technology, they now fit slimmer and are more flattering. They are a perennial favourite!

Finally, don’t be afraid to invest in outerwear. It will be in your wardrobe for many years, so choose styles you love and enjoy the most.
Don't Forget to Reserve Your Seats!
We love to see photos of you wearing fashions from KC's. Here is Sue in Portugal looking fabulous in Joseph Ribkoff!

If you haven't already, we recommend you reserve your seats for the Joseph Ribkoff Fashion Show & Trunk Show as both sittings always sell out.

We look forward to seeing you at the Boutique and remember we are open Sundays.

Sincerely,
