Seasonless Style

Designers, retailers, and fashion lovers everywhere are helping transform how we view our wardrobes. Now, instead of transferring half of your clothes to the back of your closet to be ignored for half the year, you can focus on your closet as a "whole." Consider seasonless pieces the foundation of your wardrobe that can be built upon by pairing them with other outfit staples and statement pieces. Keep reading for some of our favorite seasonless styles here at Stacey Rhodes Boutique!


White Booties

White booties can be a seasonless staple in any wardrobe. Wear them with florals, prints, and patterns all year long! They are easy to pair with dresses, skirts, jackets & denim. You could even be bold and rock an all-white head-to-toe look! My favorite looks include pairing them with a floral sundress or a chunky sweater & printed skirt. But my all time favorite is a graphic tee + distressed denim + white booties for a cool causal on-trend look. 


Lightweight Sweaters

It is always a good idea to stock up on lightweight sweaters & jackets! Sweaters can be thick & warm or light & airy depending on their knit and the weight of the yarn. Look for cotton cardigans and sweaters that can be worn with shorts or over a summer dress but can also be used for layering during colder months. 


Animal Print

I like to consider animal prints a neutral since it can be paired so easily with almost any outfit any time of year. Animal prints (snakeskin, zebra, leopard, etc.) are so great for everyone's wardrobe because of its versatility! Wear it with bright summer colors or deep fall shades, as an accessory or as a "pop of print" with your basics, mix it with other prints & patterns, or as the staple of your outfit. One of my current obsessions in my own closet is a pair of cheetah print mules that I wear with everything & will continue to do so throughout the rest of the year! 


Braided Belts

Braided belts are the perfect seasonless accessory. Belts are always great for year-round wear, and the woven texture of this belt in particular is a great match for all of your denim and for those dresses that need cinching! 


Ankle Boots

Ankle booties help women transition from season to season without all the fuss of packing them away deep in our closets during the warmer months. So kick up your feet & relax knowing you'll be getting your money's worth out of these babies! Not sure how to wear them during the summer? Pair them with a cute sundress or cropped jeans! The possibilites are endless. 


Graphic Tees

Graphic tees have become a major fashion staple in my closet! You can wear them during the warmer months with shorts, regular denim, skirts, and can even be worn over a summer dress! For the colder months you can wear them under leather moto jackets with a pair of coated denim for an edgier look. 



Polish off your outfit no matter the season with a fashion-forward hat! They keep you cool when it's hot & warm when it's cold! They're fashionable and functional! When I feel like my outfit is incomplete I reach for a hat and voila! Ready to go! Bonus: throw one on when you're having a bad hair day (those definitely are seasonless)!


Suede & Calf Hair

Much like leather, in recent years suede & calf hair have successfully evolved into a seasonless favorite. Women are incorporating the fabrics into their summer wardrobes through suede sandals, hats, booties & belts or calf hair handbags and shoes.

2018 Iroquois Steeplechase & Kentucky Derby

Every spring people travel to Stacey Rhodes Boutique from all over to find the perfect hat for the Kentucky Derby and the local Iroquois Steeplechase! And each year we sell over one hundred one-of-a-kind hats & a portion of each hat sold benefits the T.J. Martell Foundation! Below are a few of our customers rocking their SRB hats this year! See the full gallery of hats at

A personal message from Stacey Rhodes:  There is no way to describe the feeling of walking into the Iroquois Steeplechase and seeing all our hats including those pre-loved, re-worn and shared with friends.  Every hat represents a donation to the T. J. Martell Foundation that raises important and greatly needed research funds for cancer, leukemia, and AIDS.  I am proud to say that this year I was able to write this wonderful organization our largest check ever.  This would not be possible without my amazing SRB Team, our co-chairs, Whitney Daane, Danielle Breezy and Joe Breezy, and our wildly talented milliners from all over the world.  A special thank you goes to hat designer, Carol Carr, who has been an important part of our event for many years and works tirelessly on her beautiful creations that never cease to amaze me. Also, a thank you to local artist Anne Smaldone, who has painted the art that has graced our invitations every single year.   But most of all, I would like to thank you, our customers, who have supported our event since the beginning 17 years ago.  You keep us excited every year, and we are looking forward to the challenge of bringing you something new, different and fresh again next year.  See you at our 18th Annual "An Affair of the Hat"!  XO  S~

NOTE: Several photos published in this Blog and our Gallery are by photographer, Snappylifestyle.  Thank you, Adrian Morales, for your eye and special talent for capturing the moment!

Prints & Patterns


Stripes (3).jpg

Stripes never get old! We love a good black and white stripe print, but colorful stripes have given this classic look a fresh, fun twist!


Floral Collage (1).jpg

Wearing florals is an easy way to add a pop of color into your wardrobe! Another great thing about floral prints is the ability to dress them up or down, taking the look from day to night!


Abstract (2).jpg

Take a step out of the box with abstract prints! These prints can be really edgy by pairing them with leather jackets and cool booties, or make a more classy statement by pairing them with a blazer and slacks!

Animal Prints

Don't worry, animal prints are still in style and going strong all year long! You'll see animal prints on everything: shoes, bags, jackets... and I love a good, chic cheetah print! Don't be afraid to work animal prints into your wardrobe and even pair them with other prints!

Playing around with prints and patterns is such a fun way to change up your style through out the year! Pair a black and white striped top with a floral skirt or with bold, bright colors to make a stylish statement! Then try adding a cheetah print bootie with jeans and a graphic tee for a more casual, fresh look or with a dress for a fun, dressier vibe! The important thing to remember about incorporating prints into your wardrobe is to HAVE FUN with it!
