Trend Report – Lynn Higgins

As we start to get a little taste of the cooler weather, I am getting more and more excited about wearing some of the new pieces I have picked up for my winter wardrobe.  For those of you who have not had the time to catch up on the latest trends, there is a big push toward purples, plums and wines this season.  It?s a fresh look that is both updated and feminine.  Tafford has captured this feeling with a variety of new prints that can help you update for the season. My favorite is Coming Up Roses.  It is a very updated floral with a multitude of pink, purple, gray and tan colors that just POP off of the black ground.

If prints aren?t your thing, take a look at the new solid square neck scrub top with geometric design embroidery.  This 2 toned scrub top gives you great versatility.  If you want to stay with the purple trend, the Passion Flower and Purple combination is perfect.

For those Birki?s lovers, we have added a patent leather style in 2 forward colors, platinum gray and plum.  You?re on your feet all day, so why not treat yourself to comfort and style?
