Southcoast For Winter

Have you loved the debut of our Winter collection as much as us? Get ready Southcoast fans, there is a whole new collection of Southcoast bags and accessories for the new season with your name all over them. Here is a quick peek of some of favorite styles as seen at our Winter photo shoot to get you excited: 

We are most excited to introduce a few new collections to you: Rose Gold Wilmington, Dusk Charleston, Ginger Charleston, and Taupe Savannah.

Our Smoke Wilmington collection was a huge hit for Fall, and we have a feeling you will love our latest rendition in a taupe nubuck suede with rose gold tipping.

Our Charleston leathers are smooth and so soft they beg to be touched, and the cool, dusty blue hue of Dusk and soft tone of Ginger has us oohing and aahing. If you have already added the tan or black to your wardrobe (or even if you haven’t yet), it’s time to add these beautiful hues to your collection.

Finally, if you cannot get enough of our croco-embossed leathers, Taupe Savannah was made for you. In a rich tone perfect for cooler temperatures, it will be the bag you reach for over and over again.  

Shop all of our newest Southcoast styles here. Which is your favorite?

Transitioning To Fall

Whether you are mourning the end of summer or anxiously awaiting the start of a cooler season, fall will be here before we know it. We are in the camp that cannot wait to start wearing our fall purchases immediately…we like instant gratification, and our new collection is too good to wait for the weather to change.

To seamlessly transition from summer to fall, our Southcoast collection is the ultimate in seasonless style. Below, some of our favorite fashion bloggers show us how to style their Southcoast bags both now and later with a few teeny tweaks.

Saddle bags are huge right now, and they are not going anywhere for the upcoming season. The Sonny in Black Charleston will carry you through seasons to come. Swap Grasie’s tee for a turtleneck when temperatures drop.

Backpacks are another style that it girls cannot get enough of. Super-chic and hands free…what’s not to love about our Gloria? Carry with a trench worn as a dress now, and layer the dress over jeans like Jess later.

Does anything say weekend ease like jeans, a tee, and of-the-moment sneakers? Layer a chunky cardigan on top, and Meagan’s look is the ultimate in casual on a cool day. We think our Delaney in Smoke Wilmington is the perfect slouchy style to complete any laidback look.

Is it possible for a camel color to be both seasonless yet scream fall at the same time? Our Maxine in Tan Savannah is just that. We envision a jean jacket as the perfect topper to add warmth to Sydne’s look come fall.

Shop these Southcoast styles: Sonny, Gloria, Delaney, Maxine

Happy Friday!

Trending: Teal

In skimming through our social feeds of our favorite fashion bloggers, we noticed a big trend: TEAL. Two of our top Southcoast styles are available in soft leathers in this rich hue, and bloggers cannot get enough.

Scroll on to see what we mean and to get some major style inspiration. We have a feeling you just may fall in love with teal, too…

Meet Sheryl Luke

We are thrilled to announce a very exciting partnership for Fall with one of our favorite fashion bloggers: Sheryl Luke of Walk in Wonderland. If you follow us on Instagram (and you should!), you may have already seen a few photos of Sheryl carrying our Fall styles.

Stay tuned because we have more to come, but today we are getting to know Sheryl a little better as she shows how to style one of her favorite Southcoast bags in two different ways. 

“I LOVE the Blair from the Southcoast collection. Everyone should have this bag in their closet”. - Sheryl, @walkinwonderland

Below Sheryl shows the versatility of the Blair, as it can be worn just as easily with sneakers or heels.

Denim on denim may be an intimidating trend for some, but Sheryl shows us how to effortlessly pull it off by pairing distressed jeans with a dark denim topper for contrast and dimension. Sneakers are super on-trend at the moment, and they dress down the look while adding a cool-girl edge. The Blair finishes the look with a carefree-chic flair.  

Fall days were made for cozy, chunky-knit sweaters and broken-in jeans.  The luxe leather of our Blair shoulder bag and a chic pair of heels elevate the look and add a sophisticated element.

“Fall is my favorite season. The colors and rich textures…it is my favorite to dress for.” - Sheryl, @walkinwonderland

Talking Teal

Our newest Southcoast style is named the Blair, and it is perfection: with a cinched drawstring top and shoulder strap that hits at just the right spot, it is the bag you will reach for whenever you are on the go. Did we mention the soft, slouchy leather and that it is available in a brand new hue: Fall’s chicest teal?

You can be sure to see a lot more of this style on top fashion influencers on social media, but here is a sneak peek of how Grasie of Style Me Grasie and Sheryl of Walk in Wonderland styled their teal Blairs: proof that you don’t need to wait until Fall to start carrying this beauty. 

Have you added the Blair to your need list yet? Shop it here.
