With fall season in full swing, it’s time you brought your cold-weather fantasies to life. Whether those daydreams include bundling up by the fire, strolling through the park, or admiring the changing leaves — these cozy activities call for weather-appropriate outfits that are equal parts warm and stylish. Ahead, we break down four looks to help you weather the fall season in style.
1. Textured shuffle
It’s the season to pile on all sorts of layers without looking like you’ve put on some Thanksgiving weight. One of the best ways to avoid the layered bulk is to achieve some textural balance by mixing and matching an assortment of winter fabrics. Our favourite combination? Pairing leather with knit separates! Knitwear might be your go-to easy throw-on for all seasons, but adding a leather piece into the mix could do wonders for your overall look. Think of it as an infallible shortcut to looking luxurious this fall.
2. Monochrome magic
Nothing says luxe quite like a monochrome outfit. However, pulling off one color all over is no easy feat. That said, there are several ways to wear the trend that are less extreme if you’re looking for an easy option — and one of our favourite ways is to turn to neutrals. The key to wearing neutral head-to-toe is layering textures and tones or breaking up the color between two separates. Since combining multiple neutral pieces can skew bland, adding different variations of tonal pieces can add volume and sophistication to the look.
3. Back to school energy
Blame it on the Gossip Girl reboot if you must, but one of the biggest trends for fall include all things prep school style. Think thick cable knits, sweater vests, plaids, loafers — the works! And if you're looking for a fall-friendly update, you'll find plenty of options in the form of plaid coats, high-waisted skirts and mock neck tops to play around with.
4. Permission to lounge
Lockdowns may be gone, but loungewear isn’t going anywhere. The latest iterations of lounge sets will help ease the transition from a lax dressing mindset into a more presentable fashion headspace fit for stepping out. Think luxe co-ord sets in a deliciously soft blend of cashmere and wool in fitting neutral hues that can just as easily be worn when you’re running an errand.
