WINTER TIME- New Season, New Arrivals!
It's a new year now. Dare to explore and try new things with your wardrobe. Step outside of your comfort zone. Why not trade your jeans in for a skirt or a dress once a week? Sweater dresses are very comfortable yet feminine. Trade your flats in for a comfortable wedge heel boot. A long knit maxi skirt and a cute sweater can easily transition from day to evening. As we enter the heart of the winter season a few things to keep in mind are keeping warm, being comfortable, and of course staying stylish! So be open-minded about your style options and don't be afraid to try something new.
Fashion for the Fall....Are you Ready?
Who doesn't love this season? With Fashion Week among us, it's time to do some serious shopping. Time to get that new wardrobe in order. Every girl always needs to start with the basics of course. A cute cozy sweater- we're thinking cable knit. Skinny jeans- try a black color or grey shade this season, burgundy is pretty hot this season also. If you want to take it a step further, go for a pair of destroyed denim jeans (of course not office appropriate but definitely on trend this season). These jeans are definitely of the moment. You should have at least one pair in your closet, they are great for laid back weekend style. Don't forget a sexy pair of ankle boots with a killer heel (stiletto or wedge, whatever is your preference). Score extra style points with ankle booties with a buckle or two. To top it off, a cool short leather jacket or denim jacket pairs perfectly for a basic look and is a style staple in any Fall wardrobe.
The Summer is finally here! Swimsuits, Sandals, and Sundresses......oh the style of summer! Check out our new Summer collections and get your Summer started right!
We love the Spring season here at Boutique Bastone. With the new season upon us, you know what that means…. it’s time to get your dresses ready! Don’t wait to create that dream dress wardrobe. Maxi, mini, bodycon- whatever your style, we can help here at Boutique Bastone! We offer a great selection with new dresses always arriving daily.
This Spring look for lots of floral prints and romantic silhouettes. Ankle length chiffon dresses are so on trend right now. Mod prints reminiscent of the seventies are making a comeback also this Spring.
Fashion Tip- For a more understated look, try pairing denim shorts with a button up shirt and strappy sandals for the summer. This is a cool, casual, chic look (the three c’s). It’s great for the weekend or when you just want a pulled together relaxed look.
It’s holiday party season and it’s time to bring you’re A game! Stepping out in style is always the goal. The key is to not go overboard. Add a touch of sequin or sparkle to your ensemble in a thoughtful way. One great statement piece of jewelry will go a long way and make the simplest of outfits look great. Chandelier earrings are beautiful when you have your hair pulled back in a bun or with a ponytail. Sequin heels look best with solid color outfits. Keep these tips in mind as you dress for your holiday parties this season!
