Kittie Kyle can help you master transitional dressing. Because what season is it anyway? Drawing on the menswear trend, we love the knits they have selected. They are delicate enough to go over a tank dress or pair with a long floral skirt. Consider these bright colors a neutral. The perfect layer for the start of cool, fall nights. We are also circling their new shipment of Stine Goya, Chufy and Xirena fall pieces.

Kaufman Shoes

Finding a stylish shoe for travel might seem like hoping for a flight without delays. If your itinerary requires shoes that are made for walking, sightseeing, hiking or any long haul, Kaufman Shoes is the ticket. Founded in 1947 and family owned, they carry an assortment of comfortable footwear (most importantly, they aren’t ugly!). You'll find fashionable colors that are easy to pair with your travel wardrobe. They’ll work for any Poplar Avenue commutes as well.

A belt has the power to change any outfit. 20Twelve owner, Chantal Johnson, has stocked some of the best accessories to update your wardrobe. Texture, color and metallic details—because belts aren’t just for pants. Cinch in a tent dress to achieve a more tailored look for fall. Elevate a more casual floral dress with a colorful leather. Wrap over a cardigan for an updated office look. The jewel box store has our favorite emerging designers. We are also eyeing autumn frocks by Silvia Tcherassi and La Double J.

Mbabazi House of Style

Your fall calendar is booking up. What to wear when the invitation says festive? Work with Grace Byeitima of Mbabazi House of Style to select one of her beautiful long wrap skirts made from traditional African fabrics. Grace’s fair-trade business has a design studio in Uganda and a storefront on Broad Avenue. Pair with a T-shirt and sneakers for a dinner out, throw on a sweater and boots for a meeting, and dress it up with a chic oxford when the attire calls for formal. When you visit, be sure to check out the custom Converse shoes made with her prints—so chic!

Stovall Collection

It was a stylish mid-century fashion but rarely seen. When the lady of the house wasn't in a rush to get anywhere or may have "taken to her room," she often donned a bed jacket. Stovall Collection has brought them back. You don’t have to be convalescing. Scrolling through your phone or reading the latest fiction from Novel works just fine. The Helen bedjacket can go over any set of pajamas and immediately adds some comfort and polish. Add some custom notepads to your order to jot down to-do's (it’s a working bedjacket!)
