If you ask the editors of Cosmo and Vogue to tell you the top trends for fall 2020, they will likely throw around words like miniskirt and double-breasted blazer. And while these things are fabulous, I’m going to guess they were trends of the “fall 2020 that could have been” … before COVID!
Katie and I did a crazy thing a few months ago and opened a new retail boutique in the midst of a pandemic. Our vision was (and still is) to have a store of our favorite things. It just so happens that our favorite things, fashion and otherwise, fit perfectly into this fall season full of virtual meetings, virtual learning, and virtual happy hours.
As moms of five kids collectively, it is important for us to have a fashionable yet “approachable” wardrobe in terms of style and affordability. Turns out our comfort chic style, as we like to call it, is a favorite of Mint Collective customers near and far.
We have curated fun, fabulous, yet comfortable pieces that you can wear to that virtual meeting, run errands, or even meet a friend for a socially distant drink.
Our favorite looks for fall include our best-selling Pistola denim jacket with embroidered stars, paired over almost anything! You can extend the life of that summer slip dress by adding the denim jacket.
We started to carry FATE a few weeks back and it plays so well into our “approachable” motto. Tie-dye isn’t just for hot summer days anymore. This fun hippie style translates into fall with a jogger or wide-leg warm-up suit. Throw on sneakers or a fun bootie and voilà, instant comfort chic!
Dresses are definitely still in style this fall, but for us, it’s a more casual approach. Tie-dye again makes a splash as well as denim. These more casual dresses are comfortable enough to wear at home for a COVID-style date night.
We didn’t think when we opened we would be making a living off of conversation tees, but alas, that’s what we have done! The VOTE tee from Love Bubby is a popular one right now and our “Tired as a Mother” tee has been a best seller since we opened – with multiple re-orders, we have moms all over ALX sporting this tee.
We are following up that best-seller with Viva La Femme – a conversation tee fit for all the fabulous ladies in town. Paired with a pair of our Pistola jeans and a long cardi from FATE, it’s fall weekend perfection.
Stop by and see us at our boutique this fall and long live the woman!
