Five Fashion Faves for Fall

Hi Everyone!

When it comes to fashion and style Fall is my favourite season.  It’s the season where beautifully textured fabrics and rich colours combine for some fabulous fashion.  Normally, my go to style for fall and winter is leggings, layers and chunky knits and this fall is no exception.  There are a few other trends though that have really captured my attention this season, trends that I have been and plan to incorporate into my wardrobe throughout fall and winter.  These trends don’t require a lot of effort or thought, yet they look great and can help step up anybody’s style game.  Some of my favourite style stars such as Aylin Keoing and Pernille Teisbek, have been demonstrating on Instagram over the past few months how to wear multiple trends at once, and the result is sooooooooo great!  Their looks are the perfect motivation (at least for me) to try to mix up my look a bit.  Here are my fashion faves for AW 19/20:

The Teddy Coat

While this trend my seem a bit out out there for some people, Pernille Teisbeck demonstrates that this can be both casual or more upscale.  Depending on the fit of the teddy coat, the look can be sleek and elegant or casual and undone.  Both looks are gorgeous and the perfect way to stay warm when the temperature dips.

The Sweater Dress

A sweater dress is not a new trend to fall fashion but this season the fit and the styling have really elevated a staple in many people’s fall wardrobes.  Oversized and paired with ankle booties, over the knee boots or even sneakers, the sweater dress is the perfect way to dress up without having to stress over your outfit.

Leather

Leather looks amazing when paired with chunky knits,  Whether worn as leggings, pants, a skirt or even a leather blazer, leather (or faux leather) adds the perfect amount of edge to most outfits and can help your outfit go from bland to fab with very little effort.

Combat Boots

With Daniel Lee at the helm, Bottega Veneta has been killing it in the fashion game.  While my love for their padded sandals is no secret, I have also been obsessing over their pouches and combat boots – it is all so FABULOUS!!!!!!!!  The combat boot is an especially great trend for fall and winter.  It adds a bit of edge to an outfit, while also being comfortable and practical for the colder weather.

The Oversized Blazer

I have always been a blazer girl, so when I first saw Fall’s oversized blazer trend I was super excited.  Paired with leather or jeans, layers and combat boots this trend is versatile and wearable for many different styles and lifestyles.  In the past I have normally gravitated towards eye-catching wool blazers, but this season I am adding muted tones with a more masculine look to my wardrobe.  Paired with leather leggings and combat boots my look is set for the season!

I hope that you have a fabulous day!  XXS

So Let The Sunshine In

It is hot outside! As I am writing this it is currently 35 degrees outside (38 with the humidex), and despite not having air conditioning in my apartment I refuse to complain.  Instead, I am going to make the best of the warm summer months and enjoy my time in the sun.  One way that I plan to enjoy my summer is by planning an August vacation, so my mood board for July is all about vacation wardrobes, fabulous swimwear and motivation to make the best of it. Enjoy!

Trendspotting: Denim Skirts

Well the weather has finally warmed up considerably, and it is FINALLY time to pack up your winter clothes and pull out your summer wardrobe.  While I rarely wear dresses and skirts during the colder months, they become a staple for me once the temperatures start to rise. One of my favourite types of skirts to rock during the summer months has always been the denim skirt, but over the past few years it has fallen by the wayside as I haven’t found one that I like.  That is about to change. I am so excited to see denim skirts come back to the forefront of summer fashion staples, and I especially love the high low trend that many brands are currently showing.  Paired with a oversized collar shirt, t-shirt or long sleeves a denim skirt looks fabulous with so many closet basics, which makes it a great piece to rock for many different occasions.  Here are some of my favourite looks featuring the denim skirt:
