Fall has arrived in Sackville. It’s time to switch it up and welcome back fashion’s favourite season. Make a statement this fall by experimenting with some trends hot off the runways of Paris, New York, and London—you might be surprised to find some of this season’s staples already in your closet!
Plaid: The plaid trend is undeniably back, making an appearance on nearly every runway this season including consumer favourites Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Saint Laurent, and Céline. Top off your look with a tartan print jacket, or consider layering with a cozy flannel. For a bolder look, don’t be afraid to pair checks with checks, as seen on the runways of Lanvin and Dolce and Gabbana.
Fur: This ain’t your grandmother’s fur, people! Sinfully soft and ultra lux, fur is back, and it’s here to stay. Fur has long been a staple of northern climates, and this season designers found new and interesting ways of incorporating fur into their collections. Fox, coyote, mink, and exotic furs juxtaposed with sequins, glitz, and other high gloss fabrics make for an eye-catching look that’s unabashedly glam. PETA fan? Opt for incorporating an animal print jacket or sweater into your look.
Grunge: The eighties have made a comeback! This season it’s all about mixing and matching. Take some plaid, add studded leather paired with a pleated miniskirt, and you’ll capture the deliberately grungy appeal of the looks that hit the runways. Men, keep it simple with a pair of jeans worn with a leather biker jacket.
