The beauty of Autumn

 Time to say goodbye to summer and hello to the beauty of Autumn.  Many of us lament the approaching cooler season, however for those of us who love, love, love, fashion it is pure excitement.

Take advantage of these gorgeous September days and clear your wardrobe.  Clean, store or donate your sundresses, linen pieces and breezy outfits to make room for Fall fashions and sweater weather.  However, when we get a mix of cold temps some days and then back to warmth and sunshine, experiment with some smart and stylish layering.

Really, it's not about the chilly air, it's about the chic and classic outfits that will keep us warm and looking great all season long.  Think luxurious wool jackets, colourful printed blouses tucked into slim skirts, cozy knits and slouchy pants.  How about a new winter coat?  Now is the time to invest in a beautiful one from our designer collections.

Raffinée has the styles to get your wardrobe ready for the Fall/Winter season. Come in and enjoy!

New Season Arriving!

The new Fall 2017 season has started arriving and Raffinée is ready to showcase all the stunning collections.  I know, we say this every year.  How can we think of cold weather clothes when it's hot and sticky outside? In the fashion world the Fall/Winter season begins in July through to December.

Making it more confusing, is the fact that designers introduced their new Fall/Winter collections way back in February.  But that is the way the fashion seasons work and has a lot to do with orders, manufacturing, marketing and delivering.  However things are rapidly changing in this fast paced world we live in. Resulting in forcing designers and design houses to speed up their creative process for "in season" merchandise added to the demands of pre-spring, spring/summer, pre-fall, fall/winter, and resort.

For now, we are definitely enjoying the collections arriving in Raffinée for the Fall/Winter 2017 season. (and who cares if it's only August!) 

It's a good time to start planning your wardrobe before the cooler temperatures arrive.  Going through what you have (neatly stored away) helps in making room for the new items or outfits you are choosing.  Remember there are always clothes that need to be replaced or retired from your closet.  Also, planning ahead for special events is always a good idea.

One last thing.  What you wear is such an expression of who you are.  If you are someone who likes to take risks and wear stand out clothes, pick clothes you love.  If you are someone who enjoys a more subtle and classic style, pick clothes you love.
