Bellingham Fashion

by Heather Hulbert

Staying warm is still on the top of every fashion lover’s mind. As we dream of spring, we’re still not ready to banish our sweaters or retire the scarves to the depths of our closets. In the Pacific Northwest and Lower Mainland, staying warm with style has never been a problem. And if it is, then you haven’t been to Betty Lou’s Downtown Emporium. Warm earth tones are great colors to add to any collection. These interchangeable pieces can be key accents to any wardrobe as we slowly begin to think of layering with the bright colors of spring.

If warm tones are far and few in your closet, then take advice from Alysha Ritter from Bliss on State, who says “Blue is the new black.” Navy and denim choices are easy to find and easy to add colourful layers to. They’re must-haves, for both late winter and early spring collections.
