5 fall fashion items you need in your closet

This is going to be sad to talk about, but somebody has to do it. Summer is almost over!

Yes it’s a horrible statement, but for those of you that love pumpkin-spice latte season, it shall soon be here. Fall is upon us and just like the blowing winds and changing colours, people’s wardrobes also get a makeover, at least to some extent. It’s best to know a bit in advance what to expect in the stores,so here are the fall fashions you will either indulge or snub this upcoming season.

Dark Florals

Florals — you either love them or hate them. In the spring we see light and pastel floral designs, but this fall look out for dark floral prints. This trend was featured in 2017 pre-fall fashion shows in Milan, Paris and New York. Unlike whimsical floral patters, this fall will focus on dark and romantic florals, laced along lots of black to make the floral designs pop while leaving a sophisticated mystery.

Two-Tonal Style

Cherry-red and plum will be popular on the streets this season. Cherry-Red was featured a lot during award season earlier this year and even at the 2017 Met gala in May. Red is a striking and romantic colour, meant to evoke sensuality and attraction. Cherry-Red is especially eye catching when combined in a two tonal style with deeper and richer colours, such as plums, the two colours compliment each other. Examples include pairing a red dress with a burgundy jacket, or a plum dress with a pop of Cherry-Red accessories.

Off shoulder/ One shoulder Tops

The shoulder is in! Peek-a-boo shoulder tops are definitely still trending and the fall fashion trends are pushing for these one shoulder tops, especially with a full length arm. One shoulder tops offer just the right amount of skin for the unpredictable fall weather. Off Shoulder tops, should make its way through the summer and into the fall. Off shoulder tops, are so trendy because every shoulder is a sexy shoulder.

Leather Pants

Over the years, women have learned to embrace leather again, especially to complete the look for a night out in the fall. Leather pants have  made a return on the runway, including a collection from Calvin Klein, featuring looser, or slouchy leather pants. So more than likely this will join the collection of looser pants that we have seen being worn this summer including tie waist trousers and even those bohemian-themed harem pants, but instead with a bad ass edge.

Satin and Silk Shoes

One of the best parts of fall has got to be the [fall]DEL shoes and every year people are sucked into buying a new pair of fall booties, even though they have 20. Okay. maybe not all people, but just me? However, fall ankle boots and slip on heels are expected to have a smooth and inviting look, with silk and satin shoes appearing in collections for Oscar de la Renta, Gucci and Prada.

5 outfits for that holiday party

Even though winter fashion is all about cozy sweaters and warm blankets, sometimes, it needs a little bit of glam. You don’t want to be that person at the holiday party with the ugly sweater and converse shoes while everyone else is dressed to the nines.

Here are five outfits that are sure to impress your guests:

The little black dress: This is a classic, elegant, and flirtatious outfit that is perfect for any holiday affair. It’s sleek and form fitting, yet their is a hint of embellishment — just enough to make people look twice. Pair it with black or silver jewelry for a classier look, or with coloured, chunky accessories. Just make sure that if you choose the colour route, all the accessories match (even the shoes if you don’t go with a black pump).

Le Chateau, $189.95

The “casual” sweater: The grey knit sweater can be worn with jeans to a casual holiday get together or with a skirt and heels to an office party. The best part about this outfit is the comfort. Want to add a touch of elegance? Try a messy up-do with some large silver ear rings and a bold lipstick. Who says comfort can’t also be stylish?

H&M, $29.99

The sparkling jumper: This year has been all about the jumper, and Women’s Post loves that! This outfit is comfortable and forgiving if you are eating a meal.  They are also deceivingly comfortable. If your jumper is full of sequins and sparkly details, don’t bother with any jewelry. Let your outfit make the statement. Make sure to plan accordingly if you opt for the short-jumper — hypothermia is not sexy, even at Christmas.

Simons, $69.95

The funky silver top: Not feeling like a dress or a skirt? Try pairing a funky silver top with black pants and some sparkly flats. It’s festive and wintery — yet stylish. It says “I just threw on this casual outfit, but it looks amazing and I’m ready for anything.” This is a great outfit for a night out with friends or an office party.

Additionelle, $48.00

The classy red dress: Nothing says the holidays like a red fitted dress. This is another classic look that just exudes confidence. You can wear this dress with some red or black pumps and some black or silver jewelry. This look is very professional and great for a night out at the ballet or at a nice restaurant.

Banana Republic, $145.00
