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.
