My Specify Colour with Confidence™ course is here in downtown Vancouver starting tomorrow so I decided I needed a couple new items for Fall.
My Sisters and I drove into downtown Vancouver for a little shopping and dinner on Friday night and after walking around here is what I’ve decided will make you look current this Fall.
Plaids are HOT.
I especially love the pattern mixing with the leopard coat.
If you can’t see yourself in plaid pants, anyone can pull off a shirt or a scarf (above). I bought a shirt in royal blue/black and cream.
Chunky Cable Knit Sweater
Well you already saw my new cream one on the train from Montreal here.
I’m still looking for the perfect camel coat. If anyone has found one, please let me know! Fabulous coats are hard to find. Well for someone not looking all the time, like me : )
Ankle Length Jeans/Pants with booties or Ankle Straps
Lately, I’ve been noticing either booties or high shank sandals (hope that’s right) being worn with ankle length pants. If you’re short, these shoes with a skirt cut off the line of your leg. Of course Angie at You Look Fab had written a few posts about this already.
Who’s into ripped jeans? I have a pair that are very strategically ripped but not full of actual holes yet.
I also noticed a lot of fashion without waists, oversized jackets, sweaters, to go along with the roomier boyfriend jeans look no doubt.
I’ve also noticed cargo pants lately. I bought these from Joe Fresh last week. I’m guessing you need to wear them with heels though to be truly fashionable. Sigh. I have never been able to wear a 4-5 inch heel.
I have yet to figure out how to wear them and look fashionable but they sure are comfortable to wear to my office (behind my house ; ) ; )
What have you bought that’s new for Fall? What am I missing?
