Your Fall Fashion Guide

I know, I don’t want to admit it either, but fall is fast approaching. The only consolation for me is that fall is my favourite fashion season. I love the rich colours, textures and layers. But with the multitude of trends on offer this coming season, its a bit difficult to navigate fashion right now. Truth be told, it’s as if everything and anything is trending now; Goth, Victorian, Mod, 70’s, 80’s, bohemian, minimalism, lace, fur, suede, capes, military and more! Runway collections are styled over-the-top, conveying a strong statement to catch the attention of photographers and fashion editors. These theatrical looks don’t always translate well for the real world. I’ve combed through the designer collections, breaking them down to the most wearable styles, to compile a comprehensive guide for you. For each trend, I’ve included two runway, and one real-way examples of how to wear it. I have also put together how to get the look, with shoppable click-throughs. All prices are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise listed. 70’s – Suede, leather/pleather, capes, wide legged pants, denim, patchwork.

White-hot

Fresh, versatile, available in multiple fabrics, lengths and styles, there’s a LWD out there to suit every women. Depending on the style of dress and how you choose to wear it, the LWD can work for casual daytime or dressier evening occasions. Although the perfect choice for summer parties and events, be sure to leave the wearing of white to the bride at weddings! Most designers and retailers have come out with versions of the little white dress, but I was amazed at the wide variety of flattering styles currently being offered by Banana Republic. So I’ve decided to pick my favourite styles to share with you. I also appreciate that BR offers quality goods at reasonable prices that are readily available online. Here are seven of my favourite Banana Republic white dresses, but if none of these are for you, they have even more styles available in store and online.
