This season, a quiet movement is afoot to bring a little more style back into our wardrobes. People finally seem ready to move away from the slouchy hoody and yoga pants that became our uniforms as we worked from home and hid from covid.
Don't get me wrong, I love me some good leisure wear, but there is a time and a place for everything. Yes, Conroe is casual, but casual does not mean devoid of style. Conroe style has a playful sophistication that ranges from traditional to modern, and you need look no further than the growing collection of boutiques and stores in our area to find some on-trend fits for fall.
While comfort remains a top priority, people are reengaging with the world outside their homes, so now's the time to start doing a little peacocking of your own. Pops of "Orange Violet," "Persian Jewel" purple, and "Amazon" green have joined the more traditional "Doe," "Caramel Cafe," and "Polar Night" to form the Pantone palettes that make up this year's fall staples. Whether you are dressing for everyday casual, business-friendly, or a night out, all the clothing featured here comes from stores in our area.
Taking cues from Pantone's Autumn/Winter 2023/2024 NY Fashion Week color schemes, each shop builds lines that strive into the future. Pantone says their color choices signify a desire to communicate the joy of creativity and design back into our lives.
"Colors for Autumn/Winter 2023/2024 NYFW reach out beyond what we think is possible to catapult us into this new era, taking us to a place where boundaries of time, place, and identity are no longer fixed," says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute.
I want to thank Mod Boutique, Main Street Merchants, Sweet Texas Treasures, Diva Boutique, The Beauty Lounge, Cavender's Boot City, and Jordan Loves James for allowing us to dress our models with their wears and create some fun and fantastic looks during our photo shoot at Conroe's new Hyatt Regency Hotel and Convention center.
