“Falling” for you

Date: September 22, 2020

Happy first day of fall!

The season of pumpkin spice, crunchy leaves, corn mazes, and fabulous fashion is upon us.

But being the analytical person that I am, I wanted to figure out the perfect formula to fall fashion. After much contemplation, I have found the recipe.

Layers + Accessories + Fun Patterns and Textures + Rich Colours = The Fabulous Fall Fashion Formula

Layers

Fall weather often plays out as such: cool mornings, warm afternoons, followed by even cooler evenings, with the addition of the occasional sprinkle of snow (only if we are lucky 😉). I often find myself in the trap of dressing warm for frosty mornings, then seriously overheating by the afternoons. Alas, an essential part of The Fabulous Fall Fashion Formula was created: layers!

Layers are an excellent way to combat the issue of afternoon overheating, and are essential to adjusting your look for fluctuating temperatures. These can include cardigans (inspired by Taylor Swift, obviously), light jackets, or vests. Here are a few cozy picks from H&M.

Accessories

Another easy way to adjust your look for shifting weather temperatures is to accessorize. Hats, scarves, gloves, boots – they’re all good.

Take your look from so-so, to Golden-Leaves-in-your-Hair-Pumpkin-Spice-Goddess Status simply with the addition of these accessories.

Patterns

Knits, a must of The Fabulous Fall Fashion Formula, typically come in varying patterns and textures. They are an essential component of creating interesting layers, especially if you are going for a monochromatic look. Patterns are also a must of The Formula, and can accompany a neutral look very nicely. Check out some of my favourite pieces below.

Rich Colours

Lastly, we have the most important part of The Fabulous Fall Fashion Formula. Vibrant, rich colours that reflect the fleeting, ever-evolving tones of the earth during autumn are especially lovely. In my opinion, these beautiful colours are what makes fall so special as we can only witness them for a very short time (especially here in Red Deer).

I like to incorporate yellow hues such as gold, turmeric, amber, and spicy mustard into my fall fashion. And don’t forget about green. Rich colours such as moss or olive are also making an appearance across Bower Place. Check out some of these options if you want to incorporate fall colours into your workout wardrobe.
