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.

Spring into Colour!

All mood boards by trendcouncil.com With April here, the shops are finally stocked with an abundant of colourful wares, for spring in a profusion of soothing pastels and happy brights. Now is the perfect time to shop for a few fresh items but with so many beautiful colours to choose from, how do you make sure to pick the ones that best complement your skin tone? First you need to determine if you have a warm or cool skin tone. Do your skin, eyes, and face look better in bright white and black hues, or ivory, off-whites, and brown/tan shades? The former means you’re probably cool-toned, and the latter, warm. Consult the warm/cool colour palettes below for which colours will look best on you. If you don’t have time to shop in the stores, I’ve included 12 effortless spring dresses in a range of styles, colours and prices points available online.
