FALL/WINTER 2013 OUTERWEAR AND MEN’S COLLECTIONS READY FOR THE SEASON
As fall begins and closets transition, it is time to layer up, cover up and accessorize; but that doesn’t mean saying goodbye to all of the whimsical fun of summer fashion. Lands’ End (http://www.landsend.com) has curated a collection full of colorful patterns and playful polka dots in a range of pieces for any style preference or occasion.
“When designing for Lands’ End, we always like to go back to our classic roots; polka dots are definitely tried and true,” noted Sara Dennis, Lands’ End SVP of Design. “Prints are a trend we are seeing at the macro level but we wanted to offer simple, classic patterns that would be easy for our customers to incorporate into their everyday style.”
Whether made with premium Supima® cotton or a lightweight cotton blend, the Lands’ End fall collection offers an array of items in polka-dot prints that are soft and comfortable to wear. The retailer is also offering the timeless print in many updated, bright colors to keep it fresh and new for the season. Select pieces may be monogrammed with an initial or name, making them a perfect gift or just a personalized print for fall wardrobes.
Lands’ End has also made it easy to wear the feminine print, thanks to it being offered in everything from cardigans, turtlenecks and dresses to accessory silhouettes. From office to night or a weekend tailgating party, these key pieces are perfect for layering and can be worn for a variety of occasions.
