Style Tip: Choosing Fall & Winter Outerwear
Review Your Needs (and Wants)

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 a heavy weight fabric and clean lines.

Not all coats have to be wool to be warm. In fact, you won’t see much in wool this season as many ladies have an allergic reaction to it. We have new solutions for keeping you warm instead.
The Trends This Year

Key trends: reversible; faux fur; prints and plaids; art pieces; colours like Kelly green, royal blue, and hot pink; and pastels like charcoal, light grey, soft blues, pinks, and cream.

Prints and patterns are strong this season. Find animal prints in camel, earth tones, bright colours, and black and white, as well as mixed with dots or stripes. Plaids and houndstooth are big too.
For indoor/outdoor warmth, 3/4 length knit cardigans are strong and classic jackets with no closures are in style for fall.

Don’t shy away from mixing printed pants and coats! And don’t be afraid to try a puffer coat, quilted jacket, or vest.

Thanks to new technology, they now fit slimmer and are more universally flattering.
Raingear is a Must

Rain is not just a near daily occurrence on the island but also common when you travel during the winter. Don’t be caught unprepared!

Reversible water repellent lightweight jackets and coats, as well as rain wraps that fit in a pouch for travel, keep you dry and stylish.
Finally, don’t be afraid to invest in outerwear. It will be in your wardrobe for many years!

The Boutique is filled with fall fashions we know you'll love and we have exciting fashion-focused events on the horizon. We look forward to seeing you soon!
