Travelers flock to the Caribbean for its beautiful  beaches, good food and perfect weather but there’s one overlooked  element that may be of wanderlust interest too---fashion. Burgeoning  designers in the United States and Europe are able to showcase their  work in popular fashion week showcases but Caribbean designers tend to  get over looked, so that’s where St. Maarten’s inaugural 2014 Color Revolution comes in. It’s aimed at providing a platform for up and coming  Caribbean designers who have the skills to be showcased on an  international level, but also to encourage sartorial enthusiasts around the world to consider new travel destinations for shopping sprees and  buying inventory.

Highlights from Color Revolution include Donna Dove’s convertible  dress-shirt collection, Lisa Faye's tye-dye caftans and dresses, and  Kaj’s breezy resort wear. Click through the gallery for more pieces from  the Color Revolution collections. --Starrene Rhett Rocque

The leaves are changing. The air is brisk. Fall is officially here (earlier than expected in some places). This is my favorite season because the drop in temperature allows you the chance to truly showcase your style by playing with different colors and textures. Another reason is for the ability to get away for a cozy weekend with that special person. In this edition of Suit Your Life I’ll give you the perfect weekend getaway wardrobe that will take you from apple picking in the orchard to a nice candle lit dinner at a fine restaurant that evening to anything else you may want to do in between. —Gardy V. Guerrier


SYL TIP: When prepping for a weekend trip, pack light. Choose items that compliment each other, and can be interchanged and layered, to give you the most outfit options without having to take up too much space in your weekend bag.
