On Trend

February marks the middle of the 417-land winter, when it’s easy to let your wardrobe get weary. Our in-house style expert, Kaye Lee, scoured local boutiques and found some hot trends to help you keep your style lively this winter.


Feb 2014

1. Radiant Orchid
The 2014 color of the year is Radiant Orchid, according to color authority, Pantone. We’re starting to see this soft pinkish-purple hue appear in spring florals and knits, like this Suzi Roher scarf from Ashby’s Boutique • Denim Lab, $275.

2. Tartan Plaid
Plaid will make a comeback this season. Don’t be afraid to break with tradition and go all out with this time-honored pattern. Try a matching set in a modern cut like this Glamorous red tartan ensemble from STAXX, top $25, skirt $38. 

3. Animal Print
Animal print of every kind will be huge. Go all out with these Maison Scotch snakeskin print cords from STAXX, $129. 

4. Cross Body Bags
Cross body bags are a must have for late winter. Keep it sophisticated by choosing a simple black and white pattern like this Spartina 449 bag from Countryside Cottage, $78.
