In support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, here are some items in pink. I’ve also thrown in a few purple items for those who prefer it to pink for their personal style.
  • Halogen V-Neck Cashmere Sweater: V-necks are resurfacing and this one is a good basic. Available in 16 colours, of which I vote pink smoke and dark purpkle. Non-itchy and pretty fluid. Read the rave reviews. 
  • Eliza J Knit Fit & Flare Dress: A fit-and-flare frock with sleeves. Hallelujah. Could be your little pink dress for the holidays with a pair of metallic or black pumps. 
  • Eliza J Colorblock Sweater Dress: Fun over skinnies if you’re tall, or with tights and booties for Team Dress. Top with long wool coat and you’re done. 
  • Mendocino Cashmere Cardigan: Pretty and understated over a pair of faded or white jeans with tee and boots. Nice fit. 
  • Minkpink English Garden Sweater: Sport a Spring floral in Winter. Chunky and cozy. 
  • PJ Salvage Ski Jammies: Loungewear or pajamas, and nice for apres-ski. A different look to flannel and silk pajamas. 
  • Halogen Crewneck Sweater (Plus): A flattering fluid fit and neckline in a subtle animal print pattern if you go for the purple. 
  • Sejour Cowl Neck Sweater (Plus): A pull-on-and-go item that’s easy to match with a pair of jeans, trousers or Ponte pants. The vertical seaming down the front and back of the pullover adds vertical integrity to the fairly unstructured style. 
  • Sejour Shoulder Zip Drape Top (Plus): A refined knit top that’s handy for business casual over a skirt or pair of trousers. 
  • Kate Spade Tiera Wool Coat: The black colour blocked underside of the collar that is not visible in the photos is the best part of the ladylike coat. Tailored and refined. Nice to see a small collar on a coat for a change. 
  • Caslon Tunic Sweatshirt: ’80s memories without the shoulder pads. Add leggings, scarf, topper and boots and you’re out the door. 
  • Free People Rockabilly Raglan Sleeve Top: A swing top, which has been hard to find amidst a sea of oversized and welted tops. Cute for Team Casual Boho. 
  • Topshop Leopard Sweatshirt: A trendy tonal upscale kitty sweatshirt for those who prefer understated prints. Oversized and slouchy. 
  • Tory Burch Abitha Embellished Sweater: Polished, covered, festive and different. Match with skirt or trousers and you’re set for a casual holiday party. Or wear it during the day if you’re into Daytime Sparkle.  
  • Ann Klein Herringbone Pencil Skirt: A heavier weight textured pencil skirt that is as pink as it is purple. 
  • Dolce Vita Harlan Bootie: Match the skirt and embellished sweater with these booties if high heels are your thing. Beautifully tailored at the ankle with a trendy pointy toe. 
  • Aimee Kestenberg Sammy Crossbody Bag: Casually polished and hands-free for gals on the go. I love the way the sides fan out when unzipped. 
  • Collection XIIX Wool Cap: This is the best hat I’ve seen all season. How can a haute baseball cap with crisp lines not make you smile. I don’t wear hats, so please enjoy it for me. 
  • Michael Kors Leather Belt: Wide belts are hard to find at the moment and I don’t know why that is. Here’s one in purple with shiny hardware. Size up if you’re wearing it on your hips. 
  • Ralph Lauren Fingerless Driving Gloves: A fun accessory with chunky pullover, oversized vest, jeans and boots. 

I see many shades of purple in my clients’ closets, and a lot less pink. I guess purple is a more widely popular colour. I only have one purple item, a slouchy cashmere pullover. I’m in the minority and bat for Team Pink. Which do you prefer?
