Fall is just around the corner, but that doesn’t mean we need to pack up our summer wardrobe just yet!  In fact, Vancouver experiences a golden fashion season between summer and fall, where the weather is just right for light layering and comfortable clothing. Whether you’re going to the office or meeting for lunch with clients, staying stylish and comfortable is a must, so I’ll be providing four fashion tips for men and women with examples of what to wear during this unique fashion season.

Layering Is Key


It’s no secret that Vancouver’s weather can be unpredictable, so take advantage of layers. For men, a simple blazer layered over a collared shirt or t-shirt will do the trick, and a pair of slim-fit pants and loafers will complete the look. For women, a blouse with a light jacket layered over it will keep you comfortable and stylish. Pair it with a skirt or ankle-length pants and a pair of flats or heels for a chic look.


Accessorize With Scarves


Scarves are a great way to add some colour and pattern to your outfit, while also keeping you warm during the cooler mornings and evenings. For men, a classic wool scarf draped over a blazer adds texture and depth. For women, a scarf wrapped around the neck can elevate a simple outfit.


Go For Earthy Tones


During the golden fashion season, earthy tones such as mustard, olive, and rust are popular colour choices. For men, a pair of olive chinos paired with a white dress shirt and brown shoes is a classic look. For women, a cream-coloured sweater paired with cropped tan pants and ankle boots is the perfect outfit for a day at the office.


Add Texture With Knitwear


Knitwear such as cardigans and sweaters can add texture and interest to your outfit. For men, a chunky cable-knit sweater with a pair of straight-leg jeans and running shoes is a casual, yet put-together look. For women, a fitted cardigan layered over a blouse with a pair of wide-leg pants and flats or heels will make a statement.


This unique crossover season in Vancouver is a time to embrace the warm and comfortable weather while still looking put-together and stylish.
