MY STYLE: BACK TO SCHOOL

It’s that time of year again; the weather is changing, the days are getting a little bit shorter, and it’s back to school! And while I won’t be waiting for the school bus this morning, it’s still fun to put together an outfit for the occasion.

When I think of back to school fashion, I think of primary colours and playful patterns. For this look I started with a pleated A-line dress in yellow with navy stripes – something classic – and paired it with some scholastic themed accessories. Add a pair of coloured tights and swap out some of the accessories, and you’ve got an outfit that can carry you through the chillier autumn months. What is your favourite part of this look?

MY STYLE: FALL PLAID

Even though the calendar says fall began a few weeks ago, it doesn’t officially start for me until I’ve left the house wearing tights. I should preface that statement by letting you know that I really, really, REALLY don’t like wearing pants or socks (more on that later), so, when that undeniable fall chill is in the air, tights are my go-to item. With the temperature sitting around 14°C today, it was finally time to pull out the tights and start thinking fall fashion!

I thought I’d start my many fall fashion looks with plaid. I love its versatility – not only does it come in various shades and patterns, but it’s an easy look to change from work to play. I’ve paired this super comfy dress from Torrid with some casual accessories, but with a quick change from a jean jacket to a fitted leather jacket, and a swap from flats to some over-the-knee heel boots, you’ll be ready for a night on the town. How would you style your plaid look?
