Fall 2015 Fashion Trends: The Must-Haves List

Sep 13, 2015


What to Wear Now

With fall just around the corner, it’s time to prep your wardrobe with the hottest new trends of the season. Here’s my top style must-haves to get you ready for fall.


Felt Hat

The fall Bohemian is less hippy, more chic. Add a wide brimmed hat to your daytime ensemble for that added cool girl vibe.
 


Home Interior Prints

Tory Burch ($595 US)

Sport prints you’d generally see in a home. Those expensive Persian rug designs you’ve drooled over can now be dressed up for a night out on the town — perfect for the artsy eccentric.
 

White Blouse

Take your pick from ruffles, high-collared or sheer because the only rule for the statement blouse of the season is it has to be white.
 


The Statement Glove

Marshalls ($39.99 CDN)

Get fierce with your mitts and make an impact with colour, texture and even shine.

Play up your inner glam goddess in pieces that glisten, preferably in metallics.  

To-The-Floor Coats


Calvin Klein ($460 US)

Layer up in floor-scraping toppers for the ultimate lean looking silhouette.
 


Patchwork


Burberry ($3,295 US)

The easiest way to sport this trend is to wear it poncho style — fringed. In an array of patchwork printed panels, the stand-alone piece doesn’t need to match with anything else you’re wearing. This designer dud gets our 'splurge worthy' vote.
 

Over-The-Knee Boot

Guess ($179 US) (Online exclusive)

Pairs great with a mod mini or an oversized tunic. This season’s over-the-knee boot fits like a glove. Imagine a legging that extends to footwear too. It’s all about the skin-tight effect.  
 

 

The Slip Dress, Reinvented

The '90s fave gets a remake. Found in colour contrasting hues, lace, slits and even worn over pants, the slip gets multifunctional.

Brocade


Alice + Olivia ($495 US)

There’s nothing quite so opulent than a touch of brocade. But when crafted into contemporary silhouettes and daring necklines, it’s simply in a class of its own.
 
 

Minimalism

Miss Selfridge ($75 US)

Perfect for the urbanite who means business and has no time for fussy fashion. Clean lines in slightly oversized cuts makes this look contemporary.
 

The Mini

Topshop ($70 US)

Revive the '60s wild child in you with a naughty but nice mini and show off those bare sexy legs.

 

Suede Look


H&M ($79.99 US)

If you can't get your hands on the 'it' fabric of the season, fake it. This tunic is a great example of how you can pull off the look without all the maintenance of the real deal. 

 

The Layered Pendant

Bauberbar ($42 US)

Layering goes to the delicate side with multi-strands that showcase modern designs ever so subtly.

Fur Trimming


Forever 21 ($42.90 US)

Spruce up the season’s new open cut cardy with fur trimmings for that added dose of fuzziness. 

The Pant Suit


Zara

Make your ultimate power play uniform the pant suit where men make the muse.  
 

Velvet


Free People ($168 US)

The rich fabric makes a comeback for fall. Wear the lush piece loose or structured, the choice is yours. 

 

Skinny Scarf


Free People ($20 US)

Throw on a barely there scarf if you're not much for jewelry. The skinny bolt of colour or print is not meant to keep you warm, more for keeping you looking cool.   

 

 Lug Sole

Aldo ($70 US)

While I know the girly-girl in you is cringing at the sight of these, just think of how you'll not have to worry about slipping on ice or snow this winter.    

 Top Handle Bag

Rebecca Minkoff ($395 US)

If there's just one bag you've got to have this season it's the top handle. Perfect for work, make this woman-means-business look your go-to this fall. 

 

Mod   


Banana Republic ($215 CDN)

The best way to wear this trend is to think less contrived, more relaxed chic in cool pastels that pop.
