Embrace this weekend, because it’s the last of th summer sun. Montreal, it’s about to get cool. Fall is finally on its way after this bizarre weekend of 30 degree heat; so, what better to console yourself about the imminent cold than buying new pieces for your wardrobe? Fall is the perfect time to layer up and get cosy, so, here’s your look book to stay toasty, but not look like a marshmallow.

A Cosy Sweater:  The most essential item for fall is a sweater to keep you warm, whilst also suiting most of the items in your wardrobe. The sweater needs to be wearable with jeans, long dresses and skirts. This staple piece from Aritzia is perfect. Whilst on the pricier side, the quality of clothing from Aritzia is usually great and it’ll pair well with most items.

For a cheaper alternative, try this Zara sweater – honestly, it’s like wearing a blanket. It is the fluffiest sweater I have seen in a long time, plus it looks incredible. The perfect pairings are: a pair of baggy jeans, some black pants, or layered over a long dress.

Knee High Boots: Fall requires a pair of knee length boots; not only do they go with everything but they are perfect for day or night. Wear them with jeans and a sweater in the day, then with a dress, some knee high socks & a faux fur jacket by night. This pair conveys a slight medieval vibe, but are made millennial by featuring the corset-style lace up at the back.

A Knit Dress: Move away from black and try something a little different. This knit dress isn’t in a bold statement color like yellow, so don’t be scared – it’ll still suit your soul.

Millennial Pink: This skirt is in this years most glorified color: millennial pink. The skirt is a flattering fit for any body shape, and the buttons embellish it beautifully.
