Mixed and matched create true sophistication without compromising on comfort. Summer SWEATERS in sheer knits and loose weaves are this seasons items to buy. Long cardigans, vests and loosely draped pullovers have become wardrobe staples as they always look great over slim fitting bottoms. Underneath wear something longer such as a racer-back tank to keep the look current.
We believe that JAG and NYDJ (not your daughter’s jeans) are just about the best jeans on the market. This time we have happily strayed from basics (which we always have on hand). JAG’s slim ankle pants in narrow stripes or tiny dots are sure to be big sellers this spring. We also have ‘skinnys’ and leggings in playful colours and prints from NYDJ now in tangerine, daffodil, bright pink and of course, optic white; Don’t forget to roll the hem, a great look with simple flats, sandals or sneakers.

Peggy’s trip to Amsterdam last fall was highlighted with a visit to the SANDWICH head office. It was a thrill to tour the bright, modern facility and meet the head designer and her team as they worked on their next collections. At Hall & Rae we love that they place importance on style that is authentic and down to earth but still engrained with extraordinary elements and details. Each collection incorporates fresh brights with more neutral base colours so you can build on outfits you purchase from one delivery to the next . . . easy!
