DALLAS — Outerwear is feeling the economic chill and is responding with fashion and discounts to sustain business and, in some cases, move ahead slightly.
Thanks to an extra-cold winter, women are embracing outerwear for pragmatic reasons, as well. Ready-to-wear and junior market trends such as fur trim, shearling, novelty, embroidery and textures are among the outerwear fashion stars for the fall-winter season, which typically ends on Presidents’ Day, with spring kicking into full gear.
