PNW Fall is Flannel, Plaid, and Denim

We have Starbucks and the famous pumpkin spice latte, a flavor that has jumped from an anticipated flavor of the season to an icon of the changing weather arriving as early as Halloween candy in the grocery store (months before we’re actually ready). But one thing we never tire of in the PNW is our fall fashion. The first day of fall is tomorrow Friday, September 22 so it is finally time to break out our favorite plaids, flannels, and denim. Every year, there are new, fun variations on these old classics. At La Ree, we share in the love of flannel and plaid and have picked out a few of our favorites available in store now.

Pink, Pink, Pink!

“There is always a shade of pink for every color because pink matches everything”
― Janna Cachola

Pink, a color that never really goes out of style, has been having a (rose) golden age over the last year. Maybe it stemmed from our obsession with rose, or maybe it came from Millennial Pink or maybe it is because everyone looks good in pink. No matter where it came from, it’s staying around for a while. Pantone has included Ballet Slipper Pink as a color for Fall/Winter fashion and there are several shades of pink featured in the 2018 Spring/Summer pallet.

We love a little pink in our wardrobe too. This week, we’ve pulled a few of our favorite pieces that have us tickled pink.

In the words of Miley Cyrus, “Pink isn’t just a color it’s an attitude too!” Add a touch to your fall wardrobe this season and prepare to rock your unique personality all fall long.

Labor Day Style: Celebrate the Start of Fall

There is no denying it, summer in Seattle is the most beautiful time of year here. And while we struggle through long rainy winters together, we have to admit that we have a soft spot for fall fashion. Maybe it is the cozy sweatshirts, or the plaid that we just cannot give up, or the layering—Seattleites are experts at layering, after all—but whatever it is, there is something undeniably special about fall in Seattle. Secretly, I think it is because deep down we love the rain.

Let’s enjoy this Labor Day weekend not as the last bash of summer, but as a celebration of the start of fall. In honor of this celebration, we have picked some great looks for Labor Day weekend featuring sweatshirts, plaid, and, of course, plenty of layers.

It’s that time of year when we tackle back to school shopping. No matter the age from elementary school crayons, colored pencils, and binders, to college bed raisers, mirrors, cute dorm decorations, the shopping lists are long. All that may have you feeling a little shopped out. But before you throw the towel in, we think that you deserve to get yourself a little back to school treat. You deserve it.

This week, we picked out a few looks to update your back to school wardrobe. Check them out for fun, because you deserve a gold star, or just because we all need something new for all those upcoming school meetings.

Introducing Le Kasha Cashmere

Every time we find something that we know our customers will love, we start to get excited. We love seeing that surprise and happy unexpected delight shine in their eyes when they see a new label we have brought to the store. Today, we are hoping to see that same shine when we introduce our newest label, Le Kasha Cashmere.

These pieces are soft, warm, and so soft. They are stunning pieces that you will find yourself going to for years to come. This brand has been around since 1918 and solidified their reputation when Coco Chanel chose their brand to make her first suit collection.

“The spirit of freedom and adventure of the 1920s persists today, and with it the enduring values of Le Kasha.” 

Le Kasha Austin Cardigan

Paired with the Veronica Beard Landon Boot

“Founded in France in 1918, Le Kasha was part of a revolution in the way the women of the 1920s dressed. An innovative fabric made with Kashmir goat hair blended with a revolutionary new fiber, here was a fabric that looked elegant and was comfortable, while still being easy to care for, maintaining its shape and style even with constant use and washing.” 

Le Kasha The Verbier

Paired with the Raquel Allegra Easy Pant and Pedro Garcia Antonia Flat

“After the war, as women abandoned corsetry for clothes that allowed greater freedom of movement, Le Kasha’s fabric captured the spirit and mood of liberation of the time.”

Le Kasha Firenze Cardigan

Le Kasha Firenze Cardigan
Paired with Raquel Allegra Split Muscle Dress and Isabel Marant Ferlyn Loafer

“Le Kasha’s mission is to make beautiful, timeless pure cashmere clothing suitable for every place and every season.”

Le Kasha Monaco Crop Sweater

Paired with Adaptation Hi Rise Wide Crop and Veronica Beard Griffin Flat

“Made from cashmere fiber sourced from the Alashan and Arbus regions of Inner Mongolia, acknowledged as the foremost region for producing the highest and finest quality cashmere fiber, each piece is both light and long-lasting, making it the perfect fabric for the world’s wanderer.”

Come by the store to experience this stunning new brand yourself. We hope it brings a smile to your lips and a shine to your eyes.

Favorite New Arrivals

New styles have arrived in store! From new Isabel Marant shoes to new Made on Grand sweaters to new Hitchcock accessories, it’s time to stop by the store to see what we have. Many of these items are so new, they aren’t even online yet! If you see something you love, be sure to come by the store or give us a call.

We picked out a few of our favorite new arrivals to feature this week:
Isabel Marant Garret Boot

We love the new Isabel Marant Garret Boots so much we decided they needed a close up. A little on the edgy side, they are still versatile enough to pair with a variety of looks throughout the summer and into fall.

Isabel Marant West Dress

We paired the Isabel Marant Garret Boots with the new Isabel Marant West Dress and the new Elian Belt. We can see these boots paired easily with denim for a fun look or with business casual pants for a stylish office look.

Made on Grand Swarovski Sweatshirt

New to the store, Made on Grand is quickly becoming a favorite. This sweatshirt is the Swarovski Sweatshirt for the eye-catching Swarovski Bar Appliqué adding a bit of class to your everyday casual look. We’ve styled the sweatshirt with the R13 Denim Kick Fit and Golden Goose Net Slide Sneaker.

Isabel marant Ramsey dress and ferlyn loafer

This little dark navy and black dress can take you from work to weekend without missing a step. The Isabel Marant Ramsey Dress paired with the new Isabel Marant Ferlyn Loafer has adorable detail and, every girl’s favorite, pockets.

Hitchcock Cuffs

We got these Hitchcock Cuffs in store last week and are enjoying them more every day. In fact, we plan on wearing them every day. They match basically any outfit you can think of, and we suggest wearing them even with outfits that you think they don’t match, they’re that cool. Come by the store to try one on, you might never want to take it off.

Isabel Marant Kelia Sweater

The cold shoulder look took off this spring and it will continue throughout the year. The new Isabel Marant Kelia Sweater shows off a sliver of skin creating an intriguing peek-a-boo look . We’ve paired with the R 13 Denim Biker Boy and Robert Clergerie Pasketm Sneaker.

These new arrivals aren’t online yet which means it’s time to stop by the store. See you soon!

 

Two Fall Accessory Must-Haves: Hats and Boots

One of our favorite things about fashion is the creativity behind it. There are almost endless ways to style an outfit, and it is often the accessories that make one style stand out. Each season has its accessories. Summer has sunglasses and sandals, winter has scarves and gloves, and fall has hats and boots. If you’re looking for your new favorite fall accessory, La Ree has in store a variety of hats and boots that will complete and perfect your fall wardrobe style.

Check  out a few of our selection below then, come in and try them on yourself!
