Fall fashion brings rich, warm colors

TAHLEQUAH — Cooler temperatures may still be weeks away, but autumn blouses and layered tunics are already on the racks in area clothing stores.

Attention to detail continues to dominate fall fashion, according to Jana Moss, owner of S&V Fashions.

“We’re seeing rich, warm tones for fall in shirts and jackets,” said Moss. “We have sweaters trimmed in rabbit fur, faux fur vests and poncho sweaters in all colors. Bohemian style, or ‘boho chic,’ is in, too.”

Clothing and accessories, reflect autumns tones, incorporating shades of gold, tan, pink and brown. Bling continues to sparkle everywhere, and can be found adorning caps, belts, baubles, shoes, watches, shirts and pants.

S&V also offers one-of-a-kind, hand-painted leather purses by Anuschka, which are signed by the artists.

French Dressing jeans have stretch and tummy-control panels, said S&V founder Velda Hodnett. Even though she’s retired, she stills spends a little time in the store helping customers.

“I enjoyed meeting all the customers and selling. I have wonderful, lasting friends from it,” Hodnett said. “It was fun because I like people.”

At the end of August, Moss will go to market for spring and immediate-delivery fall fashions.

“I go to stay on top of what’s current and order for the future,” said Moss. “We’re all looking forward to cooler weather.”

Bohemian chic is featured at the new Om Hippie-Chique Boutique, which opens today on Muskogee Avenue.

Fashions here are soft and comfortable, made from 100 percent rayon. Styles include imported long-sleeve umbrella dresses from India, kurtas – long-sleeved long-waisted shirts, wrap skirts, pashmina shawls, and tie-dyed T-shirts are mixed in with prom and formal-wear selections.

“[We have clothing] in really vibrant colors – purples, oranges, greens and browns – and warm colors that are still vibrant,” said owner Linda Maharaj, who also makes her own jewelry.

Big, over-the-shoulder purses, jewelry, scarves, stocking caps and hemp bags add to the accessory selection.

Whether a person wears sandals year-round, or is shopping for sports shoes, boots or loafers, Doyle’s, in The Plaza Shopping Center, has it all for fall fashion footwear.

“Chestnut is big every year, in knee-high leather boots,” said Lauren Felts. “They also come in browns and black, with ankle-cut boots also available in red.”

Doyle’s offers rhinestone cowgirl boots in silver, black, tan, as well as loafers and running shoes for men and women, multi-colored rain boots and men’s work boots.

For every pair of Bobs – a particular brand of loafer – sold, a pair is donated to a child in a third-world country, Felts said.

“Everybody wants Bobs; they’re comfortable and lightweight slip-ons, and they’re in fashion right now,” Felts said. “Sperry’s are a boat shoe popular in the South. They’re built for comfort and have great arch support.”

In the north or west, many people haven’t even heard of Sperry’s, she said.

“And they’re built for durability; they last forever,” Felts said.

    The past 30 years have been marked by occasional grumbling from one American political party, and celebration from the other - depending on who occupies the White House - about the disqualification of a president after eight years of service.
    For much of the nation’s history, a presidency could last indefinitely.

  • 20th-Amendment.jpg Inauguration day changed by 20th Amendment

    Sometimes an amendment is added to the U.S. Constitution that is uncontroversial and virtually unlitigated.
    Such is the 20th Amendment, which moved the seating of the new Congress and the presidential inauguration day to January, and enumerates procedure if a president-elect dies or cannot take office.
    Because the “Lame-Duck Amendment” addresses procedure, it is long.

  • sr-19thAmendment.jpg Women got the vote with 19th Amendment

    During its first 140 years, the United States Constitution underwent a series of changes intended to extend voting rights to those who were not white or didn’t own property - but as the American experiment entered the 20th Century, half the adult population still had no protection to vote.
    Though they certainly had political opinions, women could not cast a ballot in most states. That changed with passage of the 19th Amendment.
