The final frontier, AKA the last official days of summer, have us coveting cozy fall fashion while at the time time, reminiscing for the hazy summer days we let fly by. This season, our goal is to make use of some of favourite summer trends to transition into a delicious autumn look. Don’t you dare hide those summer florals, sporty pieces, or pastels away for a whole year. It would be doing some of our beloved finds a serious disservice! Instead, use our guide and runway inspiration to find a new way to wear your edible candy-coloured pieces right into the deep days of fall.
Still want to wear your pastel separates from spring? Hate to let go of the skin-tone flattering brights you loved to throw on all summer? Worry not. It can be done, with your eye on new, warm textures and weights, mingled with your pretty pastel pieces. We loved that Moschino Cheap & Chic opted out of the dark, gothic fall trend in favour of a yummy, pale palette of pinks, citrus hues and pastels. The trick to making your light hues work for the cooler season is to stick to simple pastel pieces combined with weighty fall pieces in faux fur, leather, cable knit and denim. There is no arguing those textures are full-on fall, and you’ll be a stand-out among seas of black.
Go For Folk
The autumnal appeal of this runway look is all in the folky charm. Fall fashion is defined by a dose of fuzzy, cozy and layered, and there’s no telling how far you can go when you pair hard and soft, lightweight and heavy, or the last notes of summer with the chill of fall. We can’t wait to invest in a few great knits, a fur piece or two, and layer up some of our tastiest, frostiest pastels for an unexpected, soft look this season.
