Last week, a few of my blogger friends and I hit up the Bloor Street Roots store to check out their Spring 2012 goodies. And as you see, we all found something to love. Though I’ve always been a fan of Roots’ leather accessories, the preview made me reconsider the brand’s seriously stylish outerwear options.
First thing that caught my eye, and one that I seriously did not want to take off, was a cognac leather moto vest. How lovely is it? With a modern cut, and supple leather, it’s a perfect layering piece for any outfit this spring. And there was so much more! Varsity jackets, making a huge comeback, are available in a variety of fabrics and colors, without too many logos and adornments. Some of my favorites included a nylon jacket with leather sleeves – perfect in its simplicity, and a perforated leather vest – another item I wouldn’t mind adding to my (tiny) closet.
As expected, the collection featured a lot of bright colors, and I loved the addition of summer sandals to the shoe lineup. Not sure if Roots carried sandals before…but this year’s styles looked cute and comfy.
