Learn To Love The Sweater Again

Image

Officially, autumn has begun, and with the change in weather, there's nothing more appealing than knitwear, and this season, the sweater makes the outfit. 

This season's prints and textures range from the quirky and non-traditional, to new varieties of age-old favorites such as fair isle or stripes.   We are loving loose or gauzy knits over camisoles, or thick, chunky, knit tape sweaters over a maxi dress. Dropped stitch sweaters and cut-out shoulders are edgier options your mother would never have worn, but you could always go with the classic ribbed waist or turned cuff cardigans for lady-like ensembles for those times when she comes to visit.

Interesting details like fringe, pockets and buttons give this season's sweaters a fashionable edge over previous season basics, so you'll want to get varieties in all different of this season's rich hues.  Don't think black; I'm appealed to the palette of rusts, browns, charcoals, blush pinks, burgundies, teals, greens, reds and navy blues.  

Fall is here, so you can learn to love the sweater again.

The Kitsilano Plum was a little busier than usual last night.  After hours shoppers came by from 6-9pm for FASHION’S FIRST NIGHT OUT on West 4th.  Almost 40 retailers participated in the event, offering shoppers a special discount for one night only.  Our staff had so much fun and Plum customers enjoyed $20 off or a FREE scarf with their purchases.

Thank you to those of you who came out to FASHION’S FIRST NIGHT.  We love neighbourhood events.  It’s so fun to get the community together, especially when shopping is involved ;)

Denim Days

We can't stop thinking about the essential fall layering pieces like sweaters, scarves, boots, and of course, the right jeans (no closet is complete until you own a pair of jeans that you absolutely love).  This season, Plum is proud to carry a wide selection of Mavi Jeans. Their products are made to look and feel like premium denim, without the matching price tag.  We've highlighted a few of our favourite styles for you, from wide leg to skinnies and somewhere in between.

Dawn is a modern, high rise trouser.  This style flatters the waist whilst elongating the leg.  Pair it with a slouchy tee or a patterned georgette blouse to complete the look.

Mavi Dawn Trouser $88

Molly sits higher and tapers near the waist matching the natural line of the body. This style is also slimmer in the knee with a slight bootcut.  It’s a consistently popular fit at Plum, featured in some new washes for fall.

Mavi Molly Bootcut $98

Alexa is a sexy mid rise that is narrow throughout the entire leg and tapers at the ankle.  They are the perfect skinny jean to tuck into a great pair of boots!

Mavi Alexa $88 (Alexa Gold $130)
