OCEAN SHELL PEARLS

Wearing pearls is no longer just for the privileged. Made from white sea shells, shell pearls are a less expensive alternative to their namesake. Cut, polished and shaped to perfection, these beauties are then treated with a special solution to protect their color and luster, as well as making them durable for long term enjoyment. Shell pearls are an ideal choice for those seeking the elegant touch of pearls – they are a quality investment and an incredible price.

And now you too can own this sought-after jewelry. Shop our event for a wide variety of shapes and colors.

FROM THE RUNWAY TO YOUR CLOSET

This year, fall is all about contrast. Past and present meet in a clash of textures, hues and styles. Think ‘80s grunge and mid-century opulence, masculine fabrics coupled with feminine silhouettes, and crisp whites side by side with the richness of emerald and the intensity of navy. And that’s just naming a few.

And now with a little help from BTR, you can incorporate the top trends from this year’s runways straight into your own wardrobe.

Bold Fabrics and Patterns

Exotic Furs: Nothing speaks glamour like an oversized coat and this season designers didn’t shy away from using exotic furs, both real and faux. Rabbit, fox and mink are showing the fashion jungle who rules supreme. Shop this event for some of the season’s most sophisticated fur coats, vests and shawls.

Masculine Patterns: Perfect for the office, patterns like tweed, tartan and houndstooth lend professional polish to jackets, skirts, sheaths and trousers. Shop this trend today.

Leather Gets Tougher: Once again, leather is everywhere but this time around the luxurious fabric is a little tougher with an edge of punk. You’ll find it on anything from tees, to skirts, dresses and jackets.

Colors

In the Navy: While emerald is being hailed as the color of the year, navy is the season’s chief hue. Wear it with anything from beige to black to crisp white. Shop this trend today.

White for Winter: It’s a new year and white in all its ethereal splendor is reclaiming its place on the fall runway. This color is simply a must in your wardrobe.

Green with Envy: The Pantone endorsed hue is the color of the year. Stay on-trend with pieces in deep, rich shades like olive and forest green for the autumn season.

Accents

Sparkling Embellishments: Ok, let’s face it… eye-catching embellishments aren’t going anywhere so you might as well get in on the trend. Embellished attire adds a little spark to your wardrobe.

Knee High/Thigh High Boots: These boots are definitely made for walking and will have everyone talking about how fierce you look. Wear them with anything from denim to skirts and dresses. Shop this trend today.

Peplum: Peplum hits the fall runways in sharp, tailored elegance. You’ll see it on everything from military jackets to leather skirts and so much more. Shop this trend today.
