Fall trendsGet in on the fashion scene with the latest must-haves.

The fall season is looking bright – as bright as fall can be. Orange is the colour of the season, along with coffee, cedar, phlox (eggplant for the vegetarians out there), and bamboo. There’s a whole range of colours to complement orange – have fun with it!

The Jean Jacket
The season’s must-have item. Not the boxy kind from back in the day but a more tailored blazer-esque fit to accentuate your silhouette. Opt for a shorter crop to streamline your body and longer tapered sleeves to make this look even sexier. What’s perfect about this look is its versatility – dress it up, dress it down, layer it, wear it over a nice pair of leggings or over a dinner dress to tone things down.

Give your wardrobe a little kick with this season’s got-to-have items. A choker necklace and cuff bracelet add instant impact to any outfit. Take things up a notch with identical cuffs on each wrist.

Men’s Fall Trends
This fall, we see a range of industrial references in men’s fashion – overalls, boiler suits, and construction gear. The general look is loose and rugged, but with exceptional detailing that includes external pockets, toggles, clasps and zippers. Fabrics vary from light and flowy to heavy and stiff. The fitted overall with matching jacket is a great look, too. Make a monochromatic statement while getting a slimmer, more tailored look. Dungarees are also a great option, especially if worn with a simple T-shirt. Suspenders are also a key item. Wear them with a baggy pair of dark wash jeans to achieve this season’s industrial appeal.

The ’70s
Reliving the ’70s is always a blast! Glam it up or go full-on bohemian, either way, you will bring this fun, sexy and sophisticated look to life. Key items include the floppy hat in felt or wool, along with high platforms and mid-calf boots. High-waisted pants are also ideal for a longer, more elegant silhouette. Get them in tweed or wool and with or without the bottom flare. Jumpsuits and bowtie blouses are also an easy way to perfect fall’s hottest look.

Low and behold! Pleats are in in a big way. They’re definitely the fashion detail of the season – appearing on dresses, shirts and skirts. Vertical pleats are great for achieving a taller, leaner silhouette, and helping to conceal any imperfections. Take care, now: too many pleats around the waistline and you’ll find yourself with a bad case of front bum.
