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.

I subscribe to emails from retailers who’s prices are usually beyond my reach like Net-a-Porter and the retailers I regularly shop, to be kept in the loop for sales, because who doesn’t want a good deal? Somewhere between the start of the new year and when the spring weather kicks in (when, oh when?) is when the biggest savings are to be had on the retail front. If you want to benefit from these big savings you better get your shopping shoes on or get yourself online and pullout your credit card fast, because the biggest saving are on now! Here are a few you may be interested in. For you gentlemen, the Bay is having a menswear “Buy More, Save More” sale on regular priced shirts and ties. Buy …
