What are your favorite aspects about the September Collection?

“My favorite aspect of the September collection is that it’s our intro to “true Fall”. Within the assortment you’ll find great transitional pieces, in a fall palette that includes deep purples, and darker shades of red. Key pieces such as outerwear jackets are introduced, our full breadth of core leggings come in with faux leather and hardware details that can be worn back to great novelty tops. Finally, the dress assortment is rich in color and print, in addition to the add on of more structured styles that show on trend fabric mixing.”

What are some of the details that stand out in this Collection?

“Faux leather details along with novelty fabric mixing, that includes foiled fabrics, meshes, and laces. Beautiful hardware such as studs and zips really stand out in this assortment as well.”

What do you like best about your role?

“I truly love working with design and finding the most balanced and best looking assortment of dresses we can possibly put in our stores.”

How did you decide what dresses would work best for this season?

“Seasonally right color, prints, and novelty details were key characteristics I was looking for as I chose the assortment of September day dresses. I wanted to ensure that stores had a variety of looks and silhouttes as they transition from summer to fall.”

What is Trending this month when it comes to shopping dresses?

“Mixing of fabrics is bigger than ever. Whether it’s print on texture, faux leather details on solids or color on color blocking with contrast piping. Lace and metallic are still popular, and two piece dress looks are really trending. Anything, that makes a simple silhouette feel updated and new is big across all departments, not just dresses. Customers are looking for their new basics, and how to update their wardrobes.”

Pre-Fall Date Night Pairings

 

Date Night Top

We’re always reading the fabulous feedback, questions and stories (sometimes hilarious stories) about what our Caché girls are doing across the globe. The events you attend, the comments you get about how stunning you look in that new dress, your thoughts (and second thoughts!) about what to wear or how to wear it and even some of your minorly embarrassing moments are what keep us inspired.

One thing you’ve been asking is how to transition from summer to fall, especially when it comes to date night. You don’t want to wear too much because what if the weather’s on the warm side, or you get nervous and things start to heat up (in a not good way). And what if you wear too little and it gets cold – at the end of the date, he takes you for a late night walk but he’s too distracted by your shivering lips to kiss you.

Whether it’s your first date, second date or you and your man just like to keep the flame burning (you go girl!) there are so many elements that play a role in the planning of great date night. And just like the seasons change so should your wardrobe.

One of the best things about pre-fall fashion is layering. This season is all about date night prints and details paired with leggings and cargo bottoms. These are the perfect pieces for any wardrobe because together they make a statement but can also be paired with items you already have in your closet.

For extra layers we suggest adding a scarf, shrug, light trench or jacket to any ensemble. These accessories are easy layering pieces that are quick to throw on and take off in unpredictable weather. And don’t forget the jewelry! We’ve added statement necklaces along with bracelets and earrings to this collection for the exactly the right amount of shine.

To get you started we’ve gathered some of our favorites below. Now that the hard part’s done, all you’ve got to do is show up and be yourself – fabulous in every season.
