Spring 2020 Fashion Forecast

February 26, 2020

In Our Clothing Galleries...

Find great style in our Clothing Galleries, where we're always happy to help you find an outfit that is "So you!"

Introducing Oh My Gauze (pictured). These easy-wear styles are made with breathable, 100% cotton gauze. They’re completely washable with NO shrinking, and best of all—no iron required.

The Habitat line of clothes-to-live-in has outdone itself this spring with fresh fabrics and prints. We’ll receive shipments throughout the season, so stop by to see what’s new.

Jewelry Trends

Next stop: our Accessories Rooms so you can polish your look with current trends in jewelry and accessories. Hoop earrings of all sizes and chunky chain necklaces are the jewelry to wear in spring 2020. Add a splash of color and a dash of fun with lightweight acrylic chains and pendants.


New Accessories

You’ll flip for hand-painted leather bags and accessories by Anuschka. Each one tells a story through exquisite imagery by skilled artisans. Although the brand is now sold in over two dozen countries, the company remains family-owned—that’s a pretty great story all on its own.


The fashionable colors of Spring 2020:


Kentucky Derby Hats Coming Soon

The Little Traveler is famous for having the biggest and best selection around. They're not just for the derby - perfect for summer weddings and garden parties. 


Big Style for Little Peeps

You won’t want the rain, rain to go away when you see the adorable rain coats with coordinating outfits in our Baby & Toddler Room. The jackets are surprisingly soft and water repellent. Even better, they’re machine washable!


Get Ready for Sandal Season

We have too many cute sandal styles to count from all the best brands. Come in to find your fave. Ever since we opened our Shoe Room, we’ve been on the hunt for more leaders in quality, comfort, and style.

#1 Naot Shoe Selection

Eight years ago, we introduced you to the comfort and contemporary styling of Naot footwear, and we continue to carry the largest selection in the area. Season after season, Naot delivers innovative new styles.


Introducing Aetrex Shoes

In spring 2020, our Naot, Taos, Dansko, Birkenstock, L ’Artiste, and Vionic collections are joined by Aetrex, a company that’s been committed to foot health for three generations. This means that the superior arch support and comfort of Aetrex shoes is backed by decades of medical experience.


Patricia Locke

Chicagoland's Largest Selection

Handcrafted in America outside of Chicago, IL, Patricia Locke jewelry is distinctive and timeless. We’re proud to carry a large collection of styles & colors.


Vera Bradley

Vera Bradley has just launched a new line that's all about sustainability. Each yard of fabric in the ReActive collection is made from 16 recycled plastic bottles. Instead of going into a landfill or polluting our earth, this plastic is used to make lightweight, water-repellent, and durable bags. Styles in the ReActive line are intentionally designed for the busy, active woman on-the-go. Most pieces offer hands-free design. What's even better? The fabric itself is also fully recyclable. Look for the pink water bottle tag in our Vera Bradley room.

Our room dedicated to all things Brighton is a fashionista’s haven. We’re proud to be one of the largest independent Brighton retailers around. This spring, arrive fashionably “light” with something from Brighton’s featherweight Heart to Heart collection of quilted bags. They make great travel companions.

Thank you for embracing the Fair Trade movement.
