This next dress is from Adelyn Rae. I find this dress to be the perfect dress for a winter gala because it has the built in choker that is very trendy right now and its white which is a very popular color to wear for winter galas and events!

Going along with the trends, the tie up trend is still super popular! Following this trend we have a simple black front tie up dress by Veronica M. This dress is paired with some tan wedges but you could also choose a pair from the selection of booties that we have here at Ecco.

Hello Lauryn + Fall Trends!

Hi everyone! My name is Lauryn Green and I am interning for Ecco this year. I am 17 and a senior attending Harwood Union High School. I came to Ecco as an intern looking for more experience in marketing and fashion which are my passions and what I hope to do during or after college. I also came here hoping to solidify the idea that I would like to do this as a career one day.  Interning here has been amazing and I can only hope to continue learning and growing!

As a way of introducing myself I thought I would share my favorite fall trends for this upcoming season. The trends this year are amazing!

One of my favorites is the fur trend! To show this I have this amazing blush pink fur jacket! I paired this jacket with a basic white crew neck tee, medium wash distressed AG jeans, and some grey ankle booties! LAURYN FALL 5One of my favorite trends has always been thigh high boots, I don’t think those will ever go out of style for fall! I paired these boots with a tight black skirt, an over sized sweater, and a big purple hat. This outfit screams fall!

LAURYN FALL 3LAURYN FALL 2

Flare jeans are back in! I paired this cool denim with a button up tee and olive mules!

LAURYN FALL 7Leather pants are a HUGE trend this fall, if you don’t think you’re daring enough I recommend a black pair! They spice up any casual outfit. I highly suggest trying out this trend in the fall time! I paired these black leather jeans with a button up white top and pink Steve Madden slip ons!

LAURYN FALL 1It wouldn’t be fall without a Flannel! Ecco has so many amazing flannels this fall and they are incredibly soft and comfortable! I paired this red white and blue flannel with some dark wash denim Joe Jeans, and grey Steve Madden slip ons!

I hope you all come in and shop the new fall trends here at Ecco!

ECCO Boutique Burlington

EB: Are you a dog person or a cat person?

ECCO Staff Profile: Meet Marissa

ECCO Boutique Burlington VermontContinuing what we started last week, we’re looking forward to introducing you to each of the members of the ECCO team that help make the store as great as it is. Last time we introduced you to Melissa, and this week we’d like to tell you a little more about our Store Manager and Buyer extraordinaire, Marissa. A huge reason why we have so many  of the styles that you love – Marissa also gives us the inside scoop on her favorite Burlington destinations, hidden talents, and some of the perks involved with being a fashion buyer. 

ECCO Boutique: So how long have you been working at ECCO, and what is it about this job that makes you love it?

Marissa: I’ve worked at ECCO for going on four and a half years now, and one of the best parts of the job is the variety. Obviously I love the clothes and the creativity that comes with being involved in deciding what fashions we will bring into the store each season – but one of the best parts is the variety. From creating ads, to selling, to creating unique displays, there’s always something to do. Something new and exciting going on each day.

EB: Can you tell a little about what goes into buying clothes for the store?

M: When we’re buying for upcoming seasons, we go into New York City and meet with our regular brand representatives and designers. We look at what they’re showing for the next season, and really try to see what would work best for our customers and clientele back home. Next we always try to go around and see what innovative options other people are working with and what styles will be on trend in upcoming seasons. We try to pick up a new brand or two and really get immersed in the culture.

EB: Besides being able to get first looks at all the new designs, are there other perks that come with being a buyer for a boutique? 

M: Occasionally we’re wined and dined by some of the designers, which we definitely aren’t complaining about!

ECCO Boutique Burlington Vermont

EB: After a long day, where are you headed to go and grab a drink?

M: Lately, I just can’t get enough of Juniper in Hotel Vermont. They have such great food and drinks, and I love the atmosphere there!

EB: How about for a Sunday Brunch, any favorite spots?

M: The Farmhouse has a really great brunch – and I always get the same thing. Eggs Benedict – can’t mess with a classic.

ECCO Boutique Burlington Vermont

EB: What is your favorite brand in the shop, and an item that you just knew you had to have?

M: My favorite brand is probably J Brand jeans. I love their styles and they always fit just right. As for an item that I just had to have – there are literally too many items – basically I love them all, that’s a big reason of why we bring them in!

EB: And lastly, how about any hidden talents that we might not know about?

M: I’m a writer – I love to write poetry.

ECCO Staff Profile: Meet Melissa

ECCO Boutique Burlington Vermont

Ask any of your friends, and every last one of them will tell you that a great sales staff can make or break your shopping experience. We’re particularly proud of our team here at ECCO, and we wanted to take a second to introduce them, so you can get to know them even better! Their favorite place to grab dinner, best part about living in Vermont, must have piece of clothing, can’t-leave-home-without-it travel accessory…you get the idea. So, without further ado, here’s Melissa! 

ECCO Boutique Burlington Vermont

ECCO Boutique: What is your favorite part about living in Vermont?

Melissa: Even when it’s as cold as it has been at times this winter, the snow is just so beautiful. Especially on Church Street, at night, when all the lights are lit up and snow has fallen, it’s gorgeous.

EB: You’re out for a night on the town. Where are you going to eat dinner and where are you grabbing a drink?

M: Same place actually. I love Lenuig’s – the food there is incredible. And upstairs at the Lounge, probably my favorite place in town.

ECCO Boutique Burlington Vermont

EB: Favorite movie?

M: Bridesmaids is pretty awesome. But my favorite movie that is a little older than that is White Oleander with Michelle Pfeiffer. It’s sad, but really good.

EB: Travel item that you just can’t leave home without?

M: Makeup brush and bronzer. Don’t leave home without it.

ECCO Boutique Burlington Vermont

EB: What is your favorite brand in the shop, and an item that you just knew you had to have?

M: My favorite brands would have to be Velvet and Feel the Piece – and I just got a cashmere sweater from Feel the Piece – my new favorite.

EB: Any hidden talents?

M: I’ve been singing since I was a little girl. In high school and college I was in a capella groups. I love to sing.
