Five Fun & Feminine DIY Halloween Costumes

There are a ton of Halloween parties on the calendar Saturday night in Newport so why not dress up to get in the spirit with a easy, fun costume?

1. Suzy Bishop in Wes Anderson’s film “Moonrise Kingdom,” shot here in Newport: Pink dress, Peter Pan collar, white knee socks, binoculars, small vintage suitcase.

2. Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s: Black dress, statement necklace, sparkly brooch for hair chignon, cigarette holder.

3. Betty, Joan, or Peggy from Mad Men: Go to Closet Revival on Broadway- they can make this happen in a snap! Consider a headpiece as well! The same concept works for a 4. Stepford Wife costume- a great group costume!

5. Rosie the Riveter: Blue oxford shirt, jeans, red handkerchief, red lipstick, small wrench.

Blazers of Glory

As the sun begins to set just a little bit earlier and the mornings grow increasingly cooler, hints of fall are evident throughout Newport, and while the blue blazer (for him and her) is stylish here any time of year, right now it’s just about ideal. Styled with rolled up sleeves to show just a swathe of sassy lining, buttoned up for a more conservative take or combined with layers, it’s the perfect polished go-to. I spotted some excellent blazers, in blue as well as other colors and patterns, for him at The Narragansett and Michael Hayes, for her at J. Crew and for both at Closet Revival, Banana Republic (below) and Brooks Brothers Country Club store.

Stuck in the Middle…

Even though the calendar says there are more than two weeks of summer ahead, this past holiday weekend marked the unofficial end of Newport’s busiest season. It leaves fashionistas in a style limbo of sorts—crisp, white linen pants seem a thing of the past but the cowl neck sweaters and woolen tights are still tucked neatly in storage.

Don’t despair—knee-high boot time is near. Until then, summer dresses with jewel tone color palates can enjoy an extended shelf life when layered with a cardigan and lighter tops can be paired with darker denim. Also look to transition with accessories. Cross-body bags are a huge fall trend, channeling the structured styles of decades ago. I’ve spotted plenty in Newport’s boutiques (like J. McLaughlin and some gently used designer bags at Wish) as well as at the local TJ Maxx and Marshall’s. (The cross-body above is from J. Crew.)

STYLEPHILE READERS: Apologies for the delayed post–there were a few technical issues over the weekend!

Fall Shoe Preview!

Collecting a half dozen pairs of shoes for this morning’s Rhode Show gave me an exciting preview of some sassy shoes for great fall looks. I found (and featured) the Persia Tied Mary Jane dress shoes with metallic reptile-embossed leather at Rockport, which is also having an amazing sale right now. The style also comes in beet, all black, black with gold trim, nude and leopard, and all feature adidas adiPRENE® shock absorbing technology, so they’re 4” high but altogether comfortable ($140).

The Presia Zip Shootie by Rockport in leopard also promises to be one of the line’s most popular this season, and it’s easy to see why (also comes in black with gold trim):

There’s also a ton of edgy boots including the Tundra boot by Matt Bernson from Michael Hayes in Newport:

See these and a few more fall shoes on this morning’s Rhode Show!

Voyage: American-Made Nautical Goods

Nautical rope accessories have long been ubiquitous in Newport—belts, bracelets, key chains, dog leashes, trivets, placemats (try Scrimshanders for the latter two)—and new designs seems to pop up all the time. I found hand-crafted Voyage rope bracelets at Aqua on lower Thames, colorful pieces using premium marine rope. Manufactured in New England and launched in 2011, the bracelets (they also make belts, dog leashes and key fobs) have an inspiring story you can read about here. With a portion of Voyage profits donated to ALS/Lou Gehrig’s disease charities, the line is fashionable and philanthropical all at once. Pieces range from $8-$68.

Voyage bracelets can be found at Aqua, located at 468 Thames Street in Newport.
