November means two things for Vancouver shopaholics: 1) We need something cozy to shield us from that piercing wind and rain, and 2) We’re already tallying up how many cocktail dresses we’re going to need for the holiday season. Luckily, West 4th has everything we need to stay trendy this time of year.
We recently popped into FAB, one of our favourite Kitsilano clothing stores, and were overwhelmed by the wide selection of everything, from leather jackets to shift dresses to sheepskin gloves. Whether you’re in the market for some sparkle or your priority right now is to just stay warm (while looking cute), FAB has all the bases covered.
FAB is currently stuffed to the brim with suede and faux fur vests, sequin cocktail dresses, chunky sweaters, slim-fitting turtlenecks, and wool coats. The predominant colours are grey, black, army green, burgundy, and the always-flattering rose gold. There’s something for everyone, and piecing together outfits from their overflowing racks is all part of the fun.
The rose gold sequin cocktail dress with a drop waist (pictured above) will be a showstopper for any and all of your holiday events. The glitter will turn heads but the cut is comfortable and flattering on all shapes and sizes. It rings in at $169, and is also available in a beautiful black. If shimmer intrigues you but the sequins are too much, FAB also has a beautiful mesh foil cocktail dress in bronze gold. It’s spaghetti straps mean you’ll be baring some skin, but the loose fit keeps you cool, calm, and collected.
There’s also a beautiful black and navy (one of our favourite colour combinations) sequin shift dress, and many other options in black, pink, and red. More festive holiday options are on their way, but you don’t want to wait too long to grab your signature piece as they’re flying off the hangers already.
With so many cute cocktail dresses making their way out-of-doors over the next couple weeks, you’ll need something just as stylish to keep you warm. FAB has got you covered there, too. Pair your one-of-a-kind sequin shift with a beautiful wool coat for a special ensemble. FAB has a striking plaid lumberjack coat in black, white, and gray for $239 and a gorgeous tweed A-line winter coat in black for $465. But the options are endless. Everything from forest green leather jackets to black sheepskin vests to burgundy velvet blazers are on offer.
Pop into FAB next time you’re on 4th Ave and have a blast trying on girly dresses and cozy coats. We guarantee you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for this holiday season. (And as secret intel for you Kits.ca readers: a Black Friday sale might be hitting the FAB racks soon.)
