Fall Fashion: Local Boutique Owners Talk Seasonal Looks

1474470590_6b1b

The October issue of The Bay Magazine, on newsstands now, features my cover story on fall fashion. I was delighted to highlight some fantastic local shop owners on what they see rising as the hottest fall trends. I’ll be sharing these in the coming days. For the complete story, pick up The Bay this month or CLICK HERE.

First up is one of Newport’s (and beyond) most loved boutiques: The Pink PineappleBy Andrea E. McHugh | Photo above by Force 4 Photography

Pink Pineapple, with locations in Wakefield and Newport, has a cult-like following. Their Instagram account alone (@pinkpineappleshop) has nearly 27,000 followers, if that’s any indication. With a well-considered collection of cashmere, casual tops and bottoms, cocktail dresses and accessories, one might feel like you’re walking into your dream closet at the stores.

While a stalwart for preppy and nautical looks in the summer, The Pink Pineapple hits its stride this time of year. “We are obsessed with spice_1024x1024the fall color combos; they’re beautiful,” gushes Kristin May, manager and buyer for The Pink Pineapple. Kristin points to emerald green and cranberry tones as some of the strongest. The shop has already seen their stock of off-the-shoulder tops fly off the shelves, perhaps because the look perfectly complements the transitional temperatures throughout New
England this time of year. And there’s another reason: “They are really flattering on pretty much every body type,” she adds. Another well-received top there is one with a halter neckline and ultra-feminine scallop hemmed sides. As it gets cooler, Kristin says the nearly knee-length chunky sweaters return, this time with embedded paisley patterns and in subtle color combinations like camel and charcoal.

When dressing up, Kristin says one trend will absolutely be hot: long sleeves. “And 51281a3b1dc3a1a16c2181f65aa8e198_1024x1024.jpgbell sleeves are going to be huge!” When it comes to accessories, Kristin has already seen high demand for one of the season’s most talked about trends: chokers. “We predicted it was going to happen so we stocked up this summer and people are going so crazy; it’s unbelievable. That is going to be the ‘it’ necklace.” The trend was also hot in the ‘90s but the updated version is softer with a single strand around the neck and a longer piece that hangs to the décolletage to create a layered look.

Classic felt floppy hats polish off any look, and when looking for a simple but sophisticated go-to, Pink Pineapple’s signature cashmere is a girl’s best friend. “It’s a great basic,” say Kristin. “People come back again and again for it.” Paired with skinny jeans or leggings and cute booties? Congratulations; you’re the best-dressed mom at school drop off.

Shut Up and Drive! The Classic Driving Loafer for Her

We’re closing in on the number of shopping days left before Christmas, and I don’t want to make any sweeping gender generalizations here (men!), but if you’re still looking for a stylish gift for a lady friend, check out these snazzy driving loafers. Designed by Newport’s own Stacie Hall, owner of the Pink Pineapple and mastermind behind her own clothing and accessory lines, these women’s loafers are as pretty as they are practical. Similar styles are made by Gucci (avg. $575) and Tod’s (avg. $495), but unless you’re looking to spend hundreds and hundreds of smackaroos, these are a sweet deal at just $118.

Hardware choices include a classic gold or bamboo horsebit across the top and  available colors include: pale orange, orange, navy, black, brown, beige, purple, light pink, cobalt blue and light blue. (Reliable sources say a mens version may be in the works!) Available at Island Outfitters on Newport’s lower Thames Street and online here.
