Fall trends this year are all about being comfortable, from fitted sweatpants to oversize scarves, these styles are unavoidable. These comfy staples are in every department store, mall and boutique. Playing with colours and textures is what fall is about, don’t be afraid to incorporate pieces that are not on this list. Trends are at best a template for your wardrobe, you must complete the looks by adding your individual style to truly make them yours.

Blanket scarf

The blanket scarf is the best thing to happen to women’s fashion since yoga pants. It can either be worn as a scarf and it doubles as a cozy, warm blanket that wraps around your arms. Keeping warm at the Saturday market has never been so chic. This fall staple comes in a variety of fabrics, prints and colours. Winners at their three convenient locations in Windsor carries a huge assortment of these types of scarves.

Long Cardigan

The long cardigan also serves as a jacket when layered up with a soft flannel or thermal, or as a cozy sweater for running errands. Paired with jeans and a simple v neck t-shirt, errands become a breeze (and super stylish). Add dress pants and pumps to this piece and you have office friendly attire. H&M at Devonshire Mall carries this versatile piece in different textures and colours.

Booties

High, medium and low. Booties come in all shapes and sizes for whatever mood strikes you. There is less of a commitment with booties, they don’t become the look, unlike a tall boot in the winter. Booties simply tie your look together and keep you comfortable and warm. Find booties at Freeds of Windsor which carry a range of styles and brands including Michael Kors.

Flared Jeans

Thanks to the success of the movie American Hustle, the 70’s-vibe looks are alive and better than ever. Psychedelic patterns, bright, bold colours, big hats and flared jeans are making a comeback this season, so head over to Jean Machine at Devonshire Mall for your perfect fit and put those skinny jeans away.

Leather or Faux

Whether on your pants or a small accent piece on your shirt, leather is on everything this season. A cool leather moto-jacket can be worn day or night now, it is not reserved for the few party goers and bike riders it was once belonged to. Danier Leather at Devonshire Mall has several leather jackets, sweaters and leggings to suit any look.
