With the seasons changing, an updated wardrobe is a must! Here is some stylish but comfortable and warm fall fashion finds.  


A cute pair of loafers can dress up any look! The Steve Madden Approach is my personal favourite, but H&M and Call It Spring have great options as well. These shoes are perfect for days when you want to look fancier or when you have a big presentation (yes, I’m looking at you, business students).  


Comfortable jeans are a must-have as the weather gets colder. While style and fit are dependent on individual preference, here are a few starting points for different washes of denim. Levi’s Dad Jeans in Charlie Boy are the most comfortable and flattering light wash option, while Zara has amazing options for black and darker wash jeans.  


The most fashionable (and functional) fall accessories are scarves, belts and hats. Scarves are extremely versatile and a great way to keep warm. In my opinion, the chunkier the better, but here are a few different scarf options: chunky, silk and rectangle. A belt is another easy way to add another level to your outfits. Here are a few classic examples: leather belts, western belts and chain belts. There are also SO many different kinds of hats to choose from: baseball caps to baker boy hats, toques or berets. It’s really up to you!  


To keep up with the cooling weather, layering is the best way to go! Here are a few different kinds of sweaters you can stay warm in: A chunky knit sweater is a fall staple. Here’s a great option from Aritzia. You can never go wrong with a turtleneck- they can be worn alone or even layered under dresses and tops. I prefer to have a few styles of turtlenecks for different vibes and occasions, like a thinner one to wear under things and a bulkier one to wear alone.  


I honestly love thrifting jackets (and many of the other items I’ve listed above). Some of the types of jackets I’ll be looking for at the thrift store, this autumn is Leather, trench and denim. Normally I’ll only wear faux leather, but thrift or second-hand (and affordable) traditional leather jackets are also a great option! Leather jackets can come in many styles like biker jackets, blazers and trench coats. Trench coats are classy and come in many different styles, including short and long. Denim jackets (with a Sherpa lining) aren’t just cute, but also warm (especially for those not afraid of double denim)! A great example of this style is this Levi’s jacket.   

These are just a few of the things I’ll be wearing this fall. In the end, fashion is one of the best and easiest forms of self-expression, so don’t be afraid to wear whatever you want!
