Today is the “official” first day of fall. Of course, I’m sad to say goodbye to summer 2015, but at the same time, I’m excited for fall. I love fall, I really do! What’s not to love about pumpkin spice, beautifully coloured leaves, and Thanksgiving feasts?
Fall is also my favourite time of the year to experiment with style. The cooler temperatures are the perfect excuse to throw on a few extra layers, which means more interest and personality in every outfit.
When Upper Canada Mall recently gave me the challenge of putting together my favourite fall look, it was a no-brainer that I had to rock a cardigan…but I needed a little bit more inspiration than that. I looked through the fall issue of Gorgeous Magazine and a few accessories with fringe detailing caught my attention. Lo and behold, when I was swooning over all of the fall goodies at Hudson’s Bay, I found THE perfect cardigan. Fringes, a hood, burgundy, and geometric patterns in one cardigan. As far as I’m concerned, it doesn’t get more perfect than that.
To keep the emphasis on the cardigan, I kept the rest of my look more simple, but I have other ideas about how I’ll style it next. Once the temperatures cool down, you better believe I’m wearing this cardigan under my faux fur vest. (Psst- this same vest is available at Zara again this year!)
