Bright fall fashion
Oh fall, you stealthy little sneak. We didn’t even see you coming. One minute we’re sun bathing in polka dot bikinis and the next thing you know, we’re wearing things with faux fur attachments and wielding shovels. Cool weather beckons and many of us Canadians don’t welcome fall with open arms, except of course for fall fashion lovers.
The thrill of sliding on new equestrian boots and a leather jacket is almost as exhilarating as the first day we go without a coat. Well maybe we’re going a bit too far with that statement. Nevertheless, I think we can all agree that the fall season is home to the most stylish clothing from designers and retailers alike. Houndstooth skirts, plaid capes and tweed pea coats have always been fall staples but this year, why not keep summer colours around just a little longer?
Yes, we’re suggesting you keep the neutrals at bay in favour of bubbly brights and pastels in lavenders and cornflower blues. Retailers and designers seem to be on board with this trend of creating clothing and accessories in bright colours using heavier textiles perfect for cool weather. We’re seeing all kinds of fall appropriate shift dresses, skirts, wool coats, hats and boots in colours that rival the summer sun.
Don’t succumb to dark neutrals as soon as September hits. Instead, don one of these bright pieces that will also keep you toasty warm.
