The term “shoulder season” is most used by travelers and golfers. It marks the time between peak and off-peak seasons, especially spring and fall. When I heard Kathy Smith on our stylist team use the term with clients looking to transition their wardrobes for early fall, I quickly adopted it as a firm concept. It works!

Leather Weather

What is “leather weather”? It’s the time of year when cool and sophisticated leather (and suede!) fabrics that instantly shout fall, fashion and fun come out of the closet. While lots of leather and suede can be worn year-round, true "leather weather" celebrates leather and suede looks that mimic the rich and vibrant colors, shades, scents and textures of autumn.

This week, we share 5 fresh tips for wearing leather and suede well.

Fall is off to a great start here at Dressing Well. Our consultants are busy working with their private clients and our workshop and speaking schedule is in high gear. We are truly blessed to be doing work we love.

Of course our fall is never truly underway until our annual "Top Ten" fashion picks for women are selected and posted. This ritual began over 20 years ago when we launched our Dressing Well snail mail newsletter. (Yup, there was no internet back then and we were primarily working only with women!) It was instantly popular and is now the most frequently visited section of our website.
