They say street style reaches a whole new tier once fall is in full swing. And as cliché as that sounds, I witnessed this first-hand when I travelled to New York last month. While this Canadian editor wore a moto jacket, a black satin fringe blouse and wide-leg jeans, the rainy, “cold” city weather brought out unpredictable, yet Insta-worthy style pairings of chunky layers, patterns and textures that brought all the outfits I packed to shame.
But before breaking down the Maguire’s guide to fall styling, I’ve got some great news: Shopbop just added new styles to their sale page with more than 5,000 to choose from. From eye-catching hues of cognac to slouchy boots to knits turtleneck, here are some fall favourite trends you can shop for up to 40 per cent off.
Conservative Shades of Brown
“You’ll see in the store that it’s all about warm shades of cognac, luggage, and really pretty shades of brown. At Shopbop, we love to do is mix those kinds more of those kinds of conservative colours with like pops of neon yellow, lime green and shocking pink and kind of mixing and matching the two trends together — kind of like a colour blocking idea.”
Shop it: Shopbop, $71 (originally $236)
“For print, it’s all about animal. I think what’s new about animal print this season is that it’s all about the coloured animal. Think coloured leopard, printed alligator or croc.”
Shop it: Shopbop $166 (originally $221)
“We’re obsessed with shoes this season. The direction of shoes for fall is all about the slouchy boot – we love them! Buy it to the knee or even thigh-high and kind of slouch it down to your calf.”
Shop it: Shopbop, $235 (originally $782)
The Modest Dress
“The dress of the season is the modest dress. It’s that style with the higher neck, bell-sleeves, and its usually as a longer length — max or midi.”
Shop it: Shopbop, $58 (originally $194)
“It’s back! The focus is all about rigid washes and higher-waist, fuller lengths from the waist to your ankle, which I think is a comfortable and chic way of wearing denim. We still have our skinnies but we’re putting that to the side in our closet and going after that one-directional fit.”
Shop it: Shopbop, $118 (originally $236)
“We also have statement earrings. For jewellery, it’s all about exaggerated earrings. Think tortoiseshell, hardware, mixed material and colour — the bolder the better!”
Shop it: Shopbop, $43 (originally $58)
Structured Lady Bags
“For bags, it’s all about box shapes and baguette shapes (think east to west). It’s so fun! When shopping, also consider textures like animal patterns and finishes and even shearling!”
Shop it: Shopbop $1,025 (originally $1,281)
“You make think, “a turtleneck is a turtleneck”, but there are so many different variations of turtlenecks for the fall season. I love that idea of wearing a turtle neck under a dress or under a chunky sweater or with a jean jacket. There’s also the chunky knit which is great on its own.”
Shop it: Shopbop, $324 (originally $540)
“You don’t want to discount a belt for the season because we have so many novelty belts. Styling can be like layering two belts over a sweater or wearing it with ‘90s denim. Or even over a coat cinched at the waist.”
