  1. If there is one thing I know about outdoor women, it is that they love a great hat.  Hats go with you from the grocery store to the slopes and from the après ski scene even to the office. Not only do hats keep you warm, they make an outfit feel and appear complete.  Hats can give your style a little extra edge, or stylishly cover up a really bad hair day.  This season, there are so many different styles to choose from – fitted, slouchy, pom poms, felted, embellished, embroidered, and more… Not only has collected the top hat trends in one place, we’ve also made recommendations depending upon your style needs.  You’re welcome ;)
    2015 Fall Hat Trends To Shop Now:
    1.    Knit Brim Hats – Knit brim hats have been an ongoing trend.  They frame your face in a slightly different way than a traditional beanie.  And they add dimension and style unlike any other hat.

    2.    Wide Brim Hats – Wide brimmed hats and floppy hats abound on the runway this season.  They bring a style and sophistication to your outfit that a knit winter hat just can’t match.  Choose from classic or more bohemian styles here!

    3.    Beanies – Fitted or slouchy, pom pom or no pom pom, beanies are hotter than ever.  We have a mix of all those styles.  Choose a fitted beanie for a more sporty look.  Choose an extra slouchy style for your casual look or even just lounging around the house.

    4.    Caps –Who said you should only wear a baseball cap or trucker hat during the summer?  Winter caps are brilliant and made with winter weight materials and embroidery that match the season.  These caps are for more casual settings but will steal the show nonetheless.

  2. What is a capsule collection, you ask?  Well, according to Wikipedia... a capsule wardrobe is a collection of a few essential items of clothing that don't go out of fashion, which can be augmented with seasonal pieces. We recommend you do this by season so that you have a nice, compact and even better – travel ready – wardrobe for each season.  Everything should blend together nicely which keeps your style cohesive.
    Top Tips for a Creating a Capsule Collection:

    1. Don't ignore the basics – Basic tees and tanks for Spring/Summer, basic long sleeves for Fall/Winter.  And remember that basics don’t have to be just some boring tee.  But they do need to be something that can coordinate back with lots of items.  Example: Aventura Erin Long Sleeve has great ruching and a wonderful wrap detail.  It can be used as a stand alone or a layering piece in white/black under lots of cardigans, sweaters, tunics and so on.
    2. Neutrals – By this we don’t mean that your wardrobe has to be nothing but white, off white, gray or black.  By all means if that is what you like, go for it, but there are so many other items that will match back with lots of things.  Example: Carve Whitman Slim Pant in Midnight.  With its dark wash, it can be dressed up or dressed down.  It’s not denim, but looks like it could be, and the fit on this pant is comfortable and flattering.
    3. Travel ready pieces – Travel ready pieces are great because they coordinate with so many things and can be worn over and over again without worry about wrinkles, etc  Example: Kavu Pretty Poncho and Kavu Wrap It Up Cardi.  These can be layered over leggings, pants, skirts and dresses.
    4. Trendy Items – Let yourself buy a few trendy items each season.  It keeps your wardrobe fresh and current.  And with some trends lasting longer and longer these days, it helps ease some pressure on your bank account but still lets you look stylish every season. Example: Kavu Deva Dress in Military Camo Print or even Toad & Co.’s Printed Lean Legging in Camo or Tyrian Purple.
    5. Accessories – You can change up the look of each outfit by accessorizing.  And outdoor women love a great hat, scarf or pair of mitts.  Let’s face it, we wear them to run errands, during activities, on the après ski scene and sometimes even at work.

  3. The leaves have officially changed and the night time air is filled with a bitter chill.  We even had flurries at our house this week. Fall always seems to sneaks up on us before winter seals off the year.  In our neck of the woods, Fall only lasts a few short weeks, but it is and has always been my favorite season. 

    My favorite season aside, there is always the difficulty of figuring out what to wear as the weather transitions. We offered up Style Guides focused on layering a few weeks ago.  This week, we present you with 10 Fall Must-Haves to add to your cold weather wardrobe!
    Everyone needs a great belt to accessorize an outfit.  The Willa Belt takes the traditional leather belt up a notch but still coordinates with lots of outfits. Available in Brown and Black.
    The Abbey Crew Top is a fun long sleeve top with lots of sass.  Its feminine, graphic details, in tonal colors, line each arm and the middle of the back bringing great visual interest to what would otherwise be a basic tee. Available in multiple colors!

    The Poppy Muffler is not ordinary scarf.  A short infinity scarf worn just to protect your neck it delivers great warmth.  The slub yarns of this great muffler make it uber stylish to boot.  Available in multiple colors for your Fall wardrobe!

    Lily Mitts take a traditional cable knit mitten and turn it on its ear.  Fingerless with button details they are super classy and the soapstone and charcoal colors go with just about everything!
    The Harriet Legging has a micro chevron print that gives it a punch of style and attitude.  Available in Indigo or Black, you will want to pair these with your favorite long sweater and boots!
    Who can live without a poncho?!  Not us!  We love that the Pretty Poncho drapes so well and flows over just about any layer.  The slouch collar and asymmetrical hem give it an easy yet edgy feel. 
    The Darn Tough Offset Crew Sock is the toughest but prettiest sock we've seen this Fall.  Guaranteed to stand up against all types of activities, and designed to look good to - what more could you ask for?!
    Available in Dijon and Nightshade.
    We've been so excited about the Oversea Pant we can hardly believe it is here! Color blocking in all the right places, a slim fit to hug every curve and fabric that moves with you from every day activities to traveling on the road.

    The Carly Skirt is fun and flirty with its flounce hem and asymmetric panels.  The Silver and Deep Red color of this skirt makes it perfect for Fall.  Wear with your favorite clogs or boots and steal the show!

    Horny Toad Nixi Dress
    We love the Nixi Dress for Fall.  It is the perfect weight. and the 3/4 sleeve and drop waist gives this simple a-line dress a level of sophistication.
