One of my favorite traditions while on a trip is picking up a piece or two for my wardrobe. Whether that’s a vintage scarf from the Paris flea market or a Borsalino hat while on vacation in Italy, it’s wonderful to bring a piece of a destination home to enjoy long after the trip is over. One of my must-do stops on any trip to Nantucket is the Alice Walk store. Founded in Massachusetts with an eye towards luxurious fabrics and responsible production, Alice Walk’s timeless styles are inspired by coastal New England and go-to staples for any classic wardrobe. Their Nantucket shop is full of sweaters and cozy cashmere wraps perfect for the island’s cooler temps this time of year, and their pieces are also available online for rounding out your autumn wardrobe.
The Coveted Cape
One of Alice Walk’s standout offerings is their cape. This classic-yet-modern piece showcases the brand’s incredible tailoring. Created from doubled-faced 100% virgin wool from Italy and made in the USA, it’s a stunning piece of outerwear that is easily mistaken for a designer label. Perfect for popping over the season’s sweaters or even a blazer, the easy swingy silhouette is a favorite of mine. Whether you’re exploring a New England town or attending a special event, this cape keeps you both warm and stylish.
Alice Walk also features a range of cotton, alpaca and cashmere sweaters, including this eye-catching striped mockneck cotton sweater. This comfortable, breathable sweater is perfect for New England’s cooler evenings or casual outings. I love the roll neck and nod to nautical stripes, plus, the relaxed fit and longer hemline make it a gorgeous piece to enjoy during and after pregnancy. I now own several of her sweaters including this button neck weekender in cotton and cashmere as well as a cashmere rollneck – all elevated staples that can make you feel pulled together even if you’re only popping one on with jeans.
