Smith & Main Owner Chanel Smith Shares This Season’s Top Five Looks


Smith & Main is a women’s contemporary clothing boutique carrying a hand-selected mix of well-known designers, up-and-coming new lines and one-of-a-kind jewelry and accessories from around the world. Owner Chanel Smith aims to provide each client with the best possible shopping experience and a wardrobe that enhances their lifestyle by inspiring confidence and reflecting the best version of themselves. Chanel is a longtime lover of fashion, and when the opportunity arose to open shop on Main Street in Bellevue, she couldn’t pass it up. Chanel describes her style as a mix of classic feminine-chic with a touch of edge and draws inspiration from icons such as Victoria Beckham, Olivia Palermo and Meghan Markle. Here she shares this season’s biggest trends. All pictured pieces are available at Smith & Main.


“The Bigger the Better” – Oversized statement coats are everywhere this fall. Whether it is faux fur, shearling or a bright color or pattern, these coats will be putting the wow factor in your outfit this season.

“The ’80s” – Electric hues, vintage plaids, bold polka dots, and my personal favorite, over-the-top shoulder details, will be incorporated heavily in your wardrobe this fall. Just be sure to pare down the rest of your outfit with a high-waisted skinny or classic denim style to bring this decade into the modern world.

“American Frontierland” – Think of this trend as Little House on the Prairie meets the Wild West. Desert tones are paired with dramatic draping and billowing silhouettes. You’ll also see more feminine pieces featuring dainty floral prints.  

“Team Spirit” – Athletic-inspired basics, T-shirts and sweaters are sporty but chic. They can make any outfit unexpectedly and effortlessly cool.

“Urban Safari” – A more utilitarian safari-chic look brings functional fashion back on the map. Pockets, buttons and buckles strategically placed on garments give this trend some wearability. Unexpected colorways of camouflage and leopard make this trend feel fresh and new.
