We can all get stuck in a fashion rut, and mine is the denim rut. I fall into it because it is easy. I know what to wear with denim and I know that it will look good — so I stay the course.
When we go on our buying trips we try to keep in our heads the Alicia McCaslin mantra of “buy less/choose well.” At both of our stores, we want our customers to get their money’s worth. We know when you shop with us, you are making an investment in your wardrobe so we want it to stand the test of time and make getting dressed simple. Most of us have enough black pants; we need other options that will make us feel good when we put them on and can take us from day to night and through multiple seasons.
One of this fall’s biggest trends can do just that – the skirt.
One of my personal favorites this season is the ribbon skirt by Raquel Allegra. Not only does it look great, it is imminently comfortable. Paired with a muscle tee and sneakers, you can wear it to run errands around town or do lunch. When the temperature drops, throw on some booties and an oversized sweater or jacket and your ribbon skirt is still great for a casual office. Add the matching silk shirt and a great velvet slide and you are ready for a night out.
Now that I think more about this skit, I’m convinced that not only do you need – I need it, too. I can wear it at the store with my collection of dressy sweatshirts when I need something that allows me to move around. It also would be perfect when I host Thanksgiving this year or when I throw on some heels and I am ready to hit a few holiday parties.
