The piece that ties fall fashion together...

It’s that time of year where our wardrobe is transitioning. We keep our staples but we're cycling out our summer tops for cozy sweaters and our swimsuit cover ups for jackets and coats. This is one our favorite times of year at Allure because the weather is cooling and we are able to start layering- and by layering I mean we get to wear all of our favorite things at once! 
From light jackets to faux fur coats, we found something for every one, and every occasion. Some of the brands we are featuring in this blog such as Sadie and Sage and Bishop + Young were huge hits in the Allure Boutique this past summer and we can promise you will love what they’re serving for fall.  Our jackets this fall range big time. We know there are so many occasions, parties and events that start in the fall and one must be prepared to have a jacket or coat for each and every one. 

The Light Jacket

Sadie and Sage Morning Stroll Plaid Jacket   
Perfect for those morning strolls or evening nights out on the patio, a light jacket is a must have in any closet. It can be layered with a casual top or a more dressed up blouse. Or pull a heavier coat on top for when the weather turns cold, wrap with a scarf and you're bundled the max in style. The Sadie and Sage jacket is one of our favorites. The length mixed with the neutral plaid makes for a perfect everyday wear.

The Faux Fur


Always a classic, faux fur gives any outfit an elevated style. It is most commonly known for being a special occasion piece, like for a nice dinner out or a holiday party, but we have been loving the way they can be dressed down to a more casual level. Wear it with a pair of jeans and a basic white T, or slip it on as you're walking out the door to a yoga class. They are cozy and warm so why not wear them everyday?

The Quilted Coat - and Vest!

We are here for the quilted coats and thankfully, we have a few styles for you to shop. The fit is loose, comfy and bomber length. The fabric is soft and light but has weight to it to keep in the heat. The colors are subtle but still stand out. We have two quilted, full length coats from Sadie and Sage and we have a *super* cute quilted vest from Bishop + Young. These two brands have been around the boutique for a long time, so we are confident when we say they will last you for seasons to come.

The Cropped Wool


Cropped coats in general are some of our favorites fits. They pair well with a high wasted pant, dresses, and skirts. You can style them with a flat or a boot and they can make a second appearance in the spring as weather begins to warm. We especially love this one from Black Tape Dex because, 1. the color is perfectly muted while giving light to the warm fall pallet and 2. It is a wool blend, which means the fabric feels, fits and functions as the perfect (and stylish) fall coat.
