Nautical and preppy style is synonymous with summertime, but here in the Ocean State, it’s a look that’s in vogue the whole year through. This morning we set sail on a fall fashion journey with pieces that are both wonderful and weather ready. Today’s collection is all from Island Outfitters in Newport with additional locations in Watch Hill, Connecticut, Martha’s Vineyard and Cape Cod.
Snuggly off-white sweaters pair perfectly with bold trousers, cords, or skirts, like this pearl knitted Holebrooke sweater for women with a round neck and neat endings with a slightly longer fit with embroidery over left hip. $158
Lilly Pulitzer might be the quintessential summer label but the designer knows a thing or two about fall fabulousity, as proven with the ponte jacquard Jonah dress (pictured at top) with elbow length sleeves and yoke neckline. $168
Red, white and blue still rules as seen with the Holebrook t-neck sweater for men considered a Scandinavian classic that graces with age (top left). $210
The Holebrook men’s heavy knit Frode sweater with a shawl collar has wooden buttons and flat knitted elbow patches and label on left shoulder is ideal for a casual day in a classic fisherman’s style.
