Introducing Tricotto at Anne's on the Avenue Online

Loyal blog followers know: I’ve been adding exciting new designer collections to the Anne's on the Avenue online shop all winter long. And now that spring is on our doorstep, I’m thrilled to tell you that Tricotto has joined the line-up at:  Here are the super street-smart and chic Tricotto fashions onboard so far:  

I think these slim pants are a sizzling hot ticket. They’re black with micro-checkerboard stripes up the outer sides from ankle to waist. They look great dressed up with heels or with your favourite sneakers and sports gear. Either way, they are signature Tricotto: street-smart with a touch of chic sophistication.

One of the things Tricotto is best at is mixing street-style with haute couture. This fashionista’s dream is street savvy with its classic handbag print on the front. The dominant sweater pattern is animal print. But it has stripes and window pane blocks in the mix, too. And look closely. See how it shimmers when you turn from side to side?  That little bit of razzle dazzle is created by a hoard of glittering rhinestones throughout the sweater. It’s irresistible!

Who doesn’t love a worn-in pair of jeans? Tricotto lets you get that coveted, street-smart look without the wait. These pale blue beauties have glistening sequin details.  They also have rips and tears in all the right places. Everyone will think you’ve had them forever. And wonder how you managed to stay one size for so long. That’s a pair of jeans to love in my book!

Aren’t these new Tricotto fashions sensational? I hope you are as excited as I am about having them available online at Be sure to check the website weekly. We are continuously adding new styles and designers. You won’t want to miss out on any of them. My premier boutique, Anne's on the Avenue, is located in the Village Grove Plaza at 344 Manning Road in Tecumseh. Please do stop by and say “hi” sometime soon, too!

Always remember, your best style is confidence.

4 Great Tunics to Wear With Leggings

Bali's Tunic

Leggings are the perfect throw-on pant. The secret to looking great in these otherwise casual bottoms is to pair them with a fabulous tunic. Here are four great tunics that will make your leggings look sensational. They are available in my online shop: and at my premier boutique, Anne's on the Avenue.

This gorgeous tunic is guaranteed to dress up your leggings with unique, Bali flair.  It has a stylish, loose cowl neck and ruffled edges. Orange and white lilies against taupe and black animal print make for a fresh and enticing pattern. It’s perfect for hiding belly bulge, too. Add your favourite sandals and you’ll feel like an heiress on vacation!

This lovely tunic-length shirt has a romantic peplum below the waistline. It is available in the stunning colours of fuchsia, coral or turquoise.  The back has a pleated chiffon inset in the middle with a single centre button. Paired with leggings this pretty shirt will make you look and feel like an artist or poet. So go ahead and get out your paint brushes and palette. Or your pens and paper. You’ll want to celebrate your creative side in this stylish ensemble!

We love this tunic with its three rouched front seams and drawstrings at the bottom hemline. You can adjust the length accordingly, depending on how much hip (or none) you wish to show. I love this versatility since we all know some leggings look better with shorter tunics and others look better with longer ones. This versatile tunic also has the same rouched seams and drawstrings at the sleeve edges so you can adjust them, too.

This pretty shirt is tunic length so it looks great with leggings. The patchwork is a Bohemian style blend. It is a mix of dark and pretty pastel patterns with black trim. Eclectic but distinctive, this shirt will add a dash of style to your favourite leggings.

There you have it: four great tunics to wear with your leggings. These gorgeous tunics and more are all available in my online shop: www.annesontheavenue.comThey are also available in my boutique, Anne's on the Avenue. We are located in the Village Grove Plaza at 344 Manning Road in Tecumseh. But stay tuned. We are moving soon to a new location to serve you better. Your fashion is our passion!
