“Autumn trends are cool, colourful and comfortable”

The calendar may still say summer, but now is a great time to review what’s new and start planning your fall wardrobe.

“New fashions can seem extreme when first viewed on the runways or in magazines, but by the time they arrive in store, the trends have morphed into very wearable clothes that will update and freshen your personal style,” says Darlene Sharpe, the assistant buyer and manager at Susan J Fashions.

A handful of fall fashion must-haves and a few shots of seasonal colour are likely all that’s needed to bring your wardrobe up to speed.

Stalwart neutrals of black and charcoal set the tone and pair well with fall’s more colourful fashion hues, which include blue, wine, plum, magenta, green, goldenrod, orange, blush pink, teal and turquoise. Popular patterns include glen check, geometric, floral, snake and animal prints.

“Strong individual (clothing) pieces that are easily layered play the main role for fall, with many styles highlighted by modern asymmetrical shapes, high-tech materials, neoprene, glossy finishes and faux fur trim,” says Giuliana Athans, the owner of Moda di Giuliana.

“A key piece is the indoor-outdoor coat, which replaces the blazer as a fashion statement,” notes Athans. Wear indoor-outdoor coats over skirts, dresses, pants and jeans to express your style.

Other fall must-haves include oversized sweaters, bomber jackets, boot-cut trousers, soft flowing pants and midi length skirts and culottes.
