Zippers and Plaid

Abrig Sidney jacketWinter in Portland is something our local boutiques are pure professionals at when it comes to exciting us with the hottest trends. And this winter is no exception, in fact it is the exception. Take every rule you know and spice it up. This holiday, it’s all in the details from collars and belts to zippers and plaid.

Looking for a new winter coat to keep you warm and cozy? Go for your choice in color but try this winter on with FlairWalk (402 NW 12th Ave.) by rocking a statement collar, or wrapping a belt around the waistline to bring out your beautiful shape. Just because we’re layering up doesn’t mean you can’t show off your figure.

Stark by rocking your plaids and layers with the Aspen Ridge Coat from Wildfang (1230 SE Grand Ave.) Or let your wild side out from head to toe, with a new, complete look. Not sure where to start? Wildfang has that covered too, with personalized tomboy makeovers in store.

And for the perfect combination of statement details, fall in love with the plaid wool coat with faux fur collar, hand dyed pink ombré, and denim accents from new fashion label, Karl vonBuck, available exclusively this winter at Adorn (3366 SE Division.)

Officine BootsSpeaking of details, what about zippers? We see them on our basics every day, but used up the back of your new red leather, winter boot from Halo Shoes (938 NW Everett St.)? Is it getting hot in here, or is it just me? More boots for winter? A bright spin on your classic puddle stomper does just the trick from Adorn. Check out its newest location at 3366 SE Division!

And of course the holiday dress. Have fun this season! Be bright, and shiny and bold! Or did I say gold? Check out fun gold inspired prints, as well as fresh classics at Mabel and Zora (748 NW 11th Ave.) and see what they have in store that will keep you shining bright all winter long.
