Can you feel it Portland? The sun peeking out and giving us a dose of our Vitamin D is our preview to Spring. I know that Spring in Portland can be a little vixen and almost feel like winter, but as all of us designer consignment fashionistas know, new season = new looks.
A favorite trend of mine this season is the “Coatigan“. That’s right. It’s the perfect mixture between a simple cardigan and a coat, to still keep you warm in the cooler weather. Similar to the dusters we’re still keeping around because they are just comfy and practical, but the coatigan will step up your resale style and keep you lookin’ classy.
In denim news, have we all noticed that the skinny jean is changing ever so slightly? Last spring, the east coast trends were going as far as wearing culottes. Yeah, they’re cute, but skinnies to culottes are quite the transition and we’re not as quick around here as New York, am I right?
A fun trend and perfect transition from the skinny jean are the baby bells. Not so flared, so don’t automatically think 70’s. But, think a skinny bootcut jean. Why I especially love them is that a girl with curves and muscular legs can dig these, the small flare at the bottom gives the body and booty some balance. We’re starting to see these in our women’s upscale resale stores already, and expect more as the season progresses.
The ladies at HWGA are taking in some fabulous items this month as many of our clients are cleaning out their closets to start out the new year. What better way to start our your year with something on trend and at a great price, Which is what designer consignment shopping is all about, right?
