Spring 2016 at Dovecote Style

Our takeaways from the 2016 Spring Runway Trends were decidedly “pretty” and we are looking forward to this beautiful season ahead! Coral is the new pink – such a flattering color on women of every age but especially for our 50+ shoppers, and persimmon is this season’s au courant shade of orange – a dessert orange with pink undertones. Again, so flattering. Across the board, this is going to be a gorgeous palette of color to work with. You will see more dresses in the shop than... Full Post >

Style Defined: BOHEMIAN CHIC

This look was styled by Emma. One of the most fun parts of adopting a bit of boho style into your wardrobe is the open-endedness of what boho actually means. You get to play, which is exactly what we did with this look! Start with a classic base, but with a touch of whimsy and detail. Slim leggings with the slightest snake print? So fun. A basic cashmere turtleneck with a chunky trim? Check! We've layered these with a cashmere fringed vest from Piccolo New York and a long arrowhead... Full Post >

Q&A with Christen Watson

We were excited to catch up with Christen Watson, for Watt's Jewelry, before her trunk show at Dovecote on Saturday, March 12th and Sunday, March 13th. Here is what she shared with us about her beautiful jewelry collection! What three words best describe your line? Chic, sophisticated, bohemian. What has been your inspiration this season? I'm a huge lover of neutrals, and I've been drawn to ivory and grey a lot this season. I also love the bohemian style in spring and summer and I... Full Post >

Hints of Spring

Daffodils, crocuses, that first hint of bright, spring green . . . Here at Dovecote Style , we love these telltale signs of spring. The only thing we love more? Why, spring fashion of course! Signs of spring for us include bright colors from Peserico and boho prints from Johnny Was. Featherweight cashmere from Magaschoni and light layers. Small silk and cashmere blend scarves from Kinross provide just enough comfort for chilly spring evenings and just enough bold color to finish a... Full Post >

Q&A with Susan Kim

We were thrilled to chat with Susan Kim, for Corinne Collection, before her pop-up shop at Dovecote on Saturday, March 5th and Sunday, March 6th. Here is what she shared with us about her collection! What three words best describe your line? Individuality, versatility, and timeless. What has been your inspiration this season? For my Spring collection I was inspired by the most amazing, beautiful blush French Terry I used. The blush is not a loud pink but a subtle soft pink that I... Full Post >

Style Defined: AVANT GARDE

This look was styled by Jeanne. The graphic nature of this blouse from Pink Tartan plays nicely with others, even a geometric print pant from Krazy Larry; by basing our look in stark black and white, we've simplified what could get a little messy. To keep things chic, we carry that color scheme through to the accessories. A black and white wood bead necklace adds visual interest near the face, without detracting from the details on the top. A black and white clutch from Joanna Maxham is a... Full Post >

Style Defined: CHIC

This look was styled by Jeanne. We love a bold look that's simultaneously timeless and of-the-moment. This outfit is a great example of that, utilizing bright colors and classic silhouettes. A simple blouse from TY-LR is elevated with a graphic print, a cigarette pant has a great silk waistline detail, a Kinross cashmere coat has a unique rib sleeve and fresh raspberry hue. All of this combined with our favorite Fairchild-Baldwin necklace in "oyster," a Bettye Muller pump and a black... Full Post >

Snow Day Essentials

Whether you love to be out in the snow or prefer to watch it from the comfort of indoors, here at Dovecote we've got all your snowy day essentials covered. Our favorite winter weather scarves are the colorful ones shown here from KAS. These are 100% cashmere, hand loomed and hand dyed in Nepal. They are the softest, warmest scarves, and they never pill. Nothing is a better layering piece, whether the day calls for hot cocoa and snuggling or snowball fights. We also love our puffy jackets and... Full Post >

Style Defined: BOHEMIAN CHIC

This look was styled by Cassie. We always like to take a style and add a twist, which is what we've done here with this Boho Chic outfit. A floaty silk top is reminiscent of vintage styles, while the color and almost monochromatic feel of the whole look is nothing if not modern. We love the pairing of the diaphanous top from Claridge and King with a funky carved arrowhead necklace by Heather Benjamin, the juxtaposition of tough boots with a soft black Matta scarf and the excitement of the...
