Winter fashion points to holidays

TAHLEQUAH — Holiday parties and gift-giving are two of the best reasons to shop Tahlequah.

Merchants have everything from gowns to stocking stuffers, jeans and leggings, and gloves and boot cuffs.

“Scarves, scarves and scarves” are big for winter, said Junie Ludwig of Junie’s downtown. “Lots of layers with tribal print cardigans.”

Holiday dresses are trending toward short. One eye-catching dress of lace and ombre is available in gold or blackberry colors. Leather-look jackets in brown and black, faux fur vests, and skirted leggings are hot this season, and Infinity scarves and lightweight, gauzy scarves are flying off the shelves. Gloves and handbags also entice customers.

“Teal is the hottest color I have in my store,” Ludwig said. “It looks good on everybody.”

Jeans never go out of style, and Junie’s carries Miss Me, Grace In LA and LA Idol brands. The store also has a large selection of Tervis glasses.

Winter weather means a trip to Workman’s for Carhartt overalls and coveralls. Workman’s is the only store that carries Thorlo boot socks.

Duck Dynasty tees and hoodies, Wrangler and Cinch jeans, western and work boots and shirts with snaps and buttons and are also available, said Charles Workman. Roper shirts are featured in plaids and stripes, while Stetson shirts come in dressier styles. More shirts are arriving in orange and black, and vests and coats with or without hoods are also displayed.

Work boot brands include Red Wing, Danner and Chippawa, while western boots are Tony Lama, Justin, Nicoma and Twisted X. Boys’, women’s and girls’ styles are also found at Workman’s. Winter colors are turquoise, red, and pink in women’s knit tops and dresses.

Semi-formal evening gowns for galas are new at Cashmere Lane, which carries missy and plus sizes in many fashion items. Boot cuffs, Bohemian jewelry, ear warmers, scarves and leggings are filling the store, in Aztec designs and jewel-tone winter colors.

Leopard print gloves in gray and brown slide over rings. Especially appealing is a vintage lace jacket.

“We have fun stuff for the holidays,” said Carrie Lane. “Lots of sweaters, lots of layering. My tunics are always fabulous.”

Lane’s dressing tip is to accessorize with your basics.

“Think what’s in your closet: navy, black, red, that solid color you can accessorize with. Or match a shirt you love with Aztec leggings  to make it your own,” she said.

  • 22ndAmendment.jpg Presidential terms limited by 22nd Amendment

    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.
