What's Trending Now
While I was in New York looking at the upcoming fall trends I could not help but notice what is trending now that will also carry forward into fall. There were two things that really stood out: backpacks and belts.
Whether at the show, on the street, or out for dinner it seemed as though backpacks were everywhere, even lots of men were carrying them. It makes perfect sense because they are so very practical. In the store right now are some great, lightweight nylon backpacks from MZ Wallace and Rebecca Minkoff. These are especially great for active, busy lifestyles as well as travel. They are water resistant, comfortable and very easy to clean.
Belts have been making a slow comeback over the past year and they are now firmly a must-have item! I especially noticed that not only are belts for jeans a big trend but also belts on dresses are very fresh right now.
I found the greatest new belt company I am very excited about-- B.belt is a family-owned German company that has been in the business of making beautiful, quality belts since 1899! That is really amazing to have a company stay in the family all that time and I think it is why they still pay so much attention to detail after all these years. This is a family that takes great pride in putting out an amazing product. I can only hope Touch of Class will be here in 100 years and still in the family!
While the B.belt items won't be in stock for a few weeks, we have many great belts in stock right now. A new belt is a simple way to upgrade your look, so be sure to stop by our downtown La Crosse store for our full selection.
Until next time,
owner, Touch of Class
