Behind the bar at Armada, Jaime wears a Tibi ivory macramé crop top with fringe from Whistle Club (1235 Coast Village Rd., 805/ 965-7782) and Tucker wears a floral romper from Angel (1221 Coast Village Rd., 805/565-1599) and a military sleeveless vest and stackable bracelets from Pierre Lafond Sportswear (516 San Ysidro Rd., 805/565-1505).

Ripe with brilliant colors and rich exquisite details and notes, fall clothes and the harvesting of wine have much in common, so it’s fitting that Seasons’ fall edition has combined fashion and wine with two of Santa Barbara’s most dynamic young entrepreneurs: Jaime Heer and Tucker Huget, owners of Armada Wine and Beer Merchant (1129 State St., 805/770-5912).

Strolling through El Paseo (812 State St.) Jaime models a hat, coat, tank top, jeans and brass architectural necklace from DIANI (1324 State St., 877/342-6474) and boots and bag by Angel. Tucker wears a black cropped moto jacket with floral blouse, winter white jeans with a strategic knee tear, animal print cross body bag by Claire Vivier and high heeled sandals, all from DIANI.

While outside the air may still feel warm, there is a brittle edge to it that lets you know the seasons are changing, the harvest is near, and the time is ripe to wear some of fall’s most striking new clothes and accessories. Jaime and Tucker are crushing it in style!
In the Presidio neighborhood, Tucker wears a burnt orange linen duster swing coat over Fleetwood high-rise flared jeans, high heeled sandals, gold tone earrings and bracelets and a chocolate brown leather backpack with gold chain accent, all from DIANI. Photography by Cara Robbins.

Jaime models a cozy, nubby cropped boxy jacket silhouette, skinny dark wash jeans, a maroon silk tank, starburst necklace on a silver chain, diamond oval hoop earrings and Loeffler Randall black suede high heel pumps for that touch of lady-like chic, all from DIANI. Photography by Cara Robbins.
The pair met while working at Carr Winery, and learned about beer while putting together the rotating menu of small production wines and craft beers from around the globe. Armada is tucked behind a historical courtyard in downtown Santa Barbara. Sarah McFadden of McFadden Design Group designed this serene and airy space, with icy blue walls and nautical décor, all a nod to its sea faring name. Armada is a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere where locals and newbies can unwind with a great beverage and attentive service.
Back at Armada, Jaime wears a black jumpsuit by Equipment from Angel and bracelets and a necklace from DIANI, while Tucker models Joes Jeans paired with a nod to Coachella crochet 3/4 jacket and hoop earrings (all by Angel), along with a necklace from Pierre Lafond Sportswear and shoes by DIANI.

At the La Arcada Building, Tucker wears a Clyde Webster alabaster short brim felt hat, chunky knit sweater in pearl by Closed, dark grey jeans, white shirt by Closed, Dakota high heeled clogs by Rachel Comey, saddlebag and Ali Grace silver ring, all from Whistle Club. Photography by Cara Robbins.
On the stairs at La Arcada (1114 State St.), Jaime models Joes Jeans from Pierre Lafond Sportswear, and a navy cashmere poncho, tapestry clutch, bracelets and necklace by Angel, along with shoes by Woman by Common Projects from Whistle Club. Photography by Cara Robbins.
At the edge of autumn, with the sun still low in the sky and leaves ablaze with vermillion and gold, the beautiful fall clothes and accessories worn by Jaime and Tucker are perfect for the relaxed, Santa Barbara lifestyle at work or taking breaks from their busy schedules (with white boxer mascot, Luna, in tow) to stroll through the Presidio and La Arcada districts in the historic neighborhoods of downtown.
