Tighten your belt...
Not your style.

Talbots has that classic tailored look that never seems to go out of style. It's all about mixing and matching. You can buy a couple basic pieces that are timeless and mix them with what you already have in your closet. Their slacks come in three different styles, try them on for size for a fabulous fit! The Heritage Fit, sits comfortably at the waist. Signature Fit, slightly below the waist and my favorite The Classic Fit with a side zipper. I hate the zippers in the front that just add an additional bulge where you most don't need it! These slacks all come in the basic neutral colors, beige, black, grey, tan and brown. The sizes range is misses 4 - 16 and petites 2 - 14.
The number one fashion statement I noticed is a huge selection of fine pin wheel corduroy slacks in a great palette of colors. They are perfect for our climate as they feel thinner than jeans and they breath. The colors are yummy and all have a matching light weight sweater to go with them. There is also a selection of stylish jackets in corduroy in red or brown with tailored slacks in the rich chocolate brown. That seems to be an "in" color combination for fall. There is even a handsome tote in red that you could put just about everything you need to carry in it. I liked the plaid tote too. The collection of sweaters are all in light weight fabrics. Perfect for Florida. I liked those with the tucked front, cardigans with small round buttons. Great colors too, red, ivory, paprika, brown or olive green. It's all about basics in here, everyone needs a basic white blouse, find several styles. They also came in red, black, olive and mustard.
The section of black and white is eye catching. A bold black and white plaid short jacket can be worn with a short black skirt or a matching plaid skirt. Another was the black and white dotted jacket or blouse. Several different print blouses and tops to pair up with many different bottoms.
Magenta is back in with twin sets, jackets and blouses to add a zip of color.
This is the year of the jacket. There were many styles and colors to choose from. Find quilted jackets or vests. Or the smart red wool jacket is perfect for a cool weather trip up north. There are argyle vests that look so good with the corduroy slacks. A floral print cardigan in rich colors will add interest to any wardrobe.
Find the basic black dress that needs to be in everyone's closet. It can be worn to work or dressed up with some jewelry with a little bling and it goes out for the evening.
The "must have" accessory for fall, the scarf! There are many color combinations and they look great with any outfit. Also find a selection of jewelry and belts to complete the look.
There is a large petite selection. I know a lot of my friends are always looking for a store that carries petites, well, here it is!
Talbots is located at 23181 Village Shops Way, Suite 105 in Coconut Point, Estero.
