Westchester Shop Owners on the Hottest Styles for Fall 2012

What's hot as the temps cool


“Washable leather jackets in natural colors are very big—plus leather pants in rust, brown, and gray, and jeans in rust, teal, taupe, and cobalt-blue. Dresses are knee-length and fitted and often feature prints, as do sweaters.”
—Ruthie Zeide, Owner of Ruthie’Z in Armonk

“Look for lots of color—mulitple shades of red used together—plus oranges, and, for outerwear, blues. "
—Louisa McTurner, Owner of Weezie D., Bronxville and Rye

“Color is big—oranges, greens, plums, purples, and a variety of blues—as are woven textures. And printed jeans and corduroy pants and jackets are huge.”
—Eric Newland, Owner of Designer One, Larchmont

“We’re seeing tons of leather, and coated denim is still big. Sweaters, with lots of trim and embellishments, are trending, and lace is huge.”
—JoAnne Rovelli, Manager and Buyer of Beginnings Boutique, Scarsdale

“Color-wise, burgundy, greens, and navy are big, with tweeds and plaid patterns.”
—Angela Guitard, Owner of Angela’s, Rye

“Anything surrounding the 1920s and ’30s, art deco and Great Gatsby-inspired is big, like peplums, beading, and raglan or dolman sleeves.”
—Lisa Taubes, Owner of The Look, Rye Brook

“Get an interesting pair of velvet, corduroy, and/or printed or colored skinny jeans. For tops, there’s still a lot of sheer and lace.”
—Ellen Grad, Owner of EB Barrett, Larchmont
