Welcome to our March Newsletter
Spring is just around the corner and we hear the oohs and aahs about the wonderful colours. Now that it is March, we would describe KC's Boutique as BOUNTIFUL! BOUNTIFUL in rich blooming colours, selection and sizes.
What's one hot must-have item for spring? ANKLE pants! 
They are all the rage and work well to show off flats or stylish heels. Available in regular and petite sizes, come in and try on a pair. 

All of our spring stock trickles in for the season beginning in January and February until mid-March. Don't wait for the weather; come and shop the amazing new lines and styles now.
New Line: Exotic Escape with Orientique Australia

We have a great new line from Australia featuring natural fibres including cottons and rayons. Our ladies are excited to see these styles in their suitcases whether they are travelling to Mexico, India, Europe or Hawaii; these unique prints are inspired by fashion from around the world. Add colour and fun to your wardrobe!

Catering to women 35 years and older, this line has lined pieces, structured pieces, sleeveless styles that cover bra straps, many styles with sleeves and great shapes to flatter your body.

Orientique's clothing is not only affordable, but machine washable too!
Sweater Styles for Spring

We are now full of sweaters from Putorti, Parkhurst and Marble. Cotton, short sleeves, long sleeves and all necklines are available. Find unique details like zippers or buttons up the back or even on shoulders and sleeves!

Cover up with Parkhurst's colourful capes in cream, peach, red, black and blue. These capes stay in place with a pull through tab on the shoulder. Perfect for travelling or staying warm in air conditioning!

Marble's spring tops are bright and fun. We love the turquoise grouping and it sells out the fastest! This line's flattering sweaters and t-shirts are designed in Scotland for that effortless European style.

Style Tip:  Pants That Fit
This spring, follow these tips to get the best pants that fit your body shape.

If you are PETITE (5'4" or under), try a trimmed crop pant by Lisette L., Renuar or FDJ. We also recommend Joseph Ribkoff's style with a vertical crease down the front and back which makes legs appear longer. Compression fabrics tend to slim the leg and give you some height as well.

For our ladies with FULL HIPS and thighs, we suggest the Peggy Fit from FDJ or a classic pant by Tribal, where the cut falls down from the widest part of the thigh for a flattering fit. A slight bootcut or straight leg (not skinny) will help your curves look less wide.
If you have a TUMMY, try a straight leg pant and find one that sits neatly at your waist. We suggest a Lisette L. pull on pant with tummy control. Avoid pleats or baggy cuts which bring attention to your midriff.
TALL women can carry off a fabulous flare pant, yes they are back! Palazzo pants work well with height too.
Lastly, if your waist is much smaller than your hips and your backside appears bigger than the rest of your frame, fit your bum and take in the waist. Save waist alterations by trying the Flatter Me Belt!

Let us help you find flattering and comfortable pants this spring! 
KC's Boutique Trunk Shows 
Our Lisette L. Trunk Show was a huge success, so much so that we will kick off each major season by letting you choose your size, colour and style of Lisette L. pants!
Our Next Trunk Show is May 28th with Canadian designer Joseph Ribkoff. It will be your chance to pre-order their new collections before they hit the stores, so mark your calendars, we will keep you updated.
