As you may or may not know, the September issue of any fashion magazine is the largest and most important of the year. It highlights all the new Spring collections- the trends, the styles, the colors, the everything. So how does this relate to Bass Pro Shops? It's not spring and this isn't a fashion magazine.
I had a woman stop me a few days ago in the ladies apparel section. She had about 3 sweaters in her hand and her eyes were wide. I knew what she was about to say before she said it, because I had heard the same thing a few times before. "You have women's clothes? You have cute women's clothes?! I didn't know!" We do, and not many people know that. Lots of husbands get in trouble for leaving this detail out when going to pick up fishing or hunting supplies, so I hear.
So I wanted to share with you some our current collections modeled by two of our associates and some trends for this fall/winter season.Oversize sweaters
are huge this season, paired with leggings or skirts. Try mixing textures- soft knits with denim and corduroy.

Yay coats. I'm obsessed with coats, even though I live in Arizona and coat season only lasts a few weeks instead of a few months. So I've chosen a selection of jackets that will get you through the chilly season and a few coats that will keep you super warm if you travel or live somewhere where it gets colder. Don't be afraid of color or prints in outerwear. It's a great way to brighten up an outfit

On Caela: Coat
, Columbia Kaleidaslope Omni- Heat Jacket, $120. Top, Share the Care Camo Ribbon Tee, $19.99.
I love both of these jackets, because they're super lightweight and comfortable. I also like that the Columbia jacket is fitted and feminine.

On Caela: Jacket
, North Face Denali Jacket, $165. Top, Columbia Greenway T long sleeve striped crew, $19.97.
I love this Ascend jacket, because of the texture of the wool and the motorcycle jacket feel it has. It's warm, it's stylish, it's slimming- what more could you ask for?
The Under Armour jacket looks so lightweight and like a summer jacket, but it has zone insulation and keeps you super warm without being bulky.
The best thing about this Under Armour jacket?
It does this....
With 2 quick zips, the sleeves come off and it becomes a vest!
