Fall always brings out the best in fashion. Cozy capes, cool boots, and fun layers are essential autumnal wardrobe items. Just like our #SQ1AndTheCity fall campaign (pictured above), we’re all about mixing and matching timeless wear with trendy pieces. To get you in the know, here are a few key trends to keep an eye out for when you’re doing your fall shopping. 

The fall fashion runways were awash with a sea of red. Dolce and Gabbana, and Givenchy, were some of many who chose to inject this powerful shade into their jackets. Follow suit with a similar style like this red short coat made of woven crêped fabric from H&M

Spring and summer may have come and gone, but florals still live on for the next few months. Fun and easy ways to incorporate this flourishing style into your outfit is through a pretty top, like this floral bow T-shirt from Zara. Pair with your basic black pants for work, or jeans on the weekend, and you’re set. 

Adding the forever classic Claire pump from Michael Kors is a step in the right direction. Fall footwear everywhere is all about mixing and matching traditional materials with sleek patterns. Leopard print, studded leather, or suede pumps are not only trending this season, but re-wearable for the holidays and early spring.  

Plaid is back, and in a good way. Statement pants at TOME, and checkered skirts at Tory Burch made their mark on the runways. However, if you want to casually wear this for the weekend, that works too! Match with your mister and grab the Varley plaid shirt and Daysland flannel shirt, both from Roots

This fall, when it comes to boots shopping, don’t be afraid to aim high–in length. Designers from Balmain to Fendi to Nina Ricci embraced this trend throughout their Fall/Winter 2017 shows, and you should too. Stay au courant with a pair of these Lowland Boots from Stuart Weitzman, also available in three suede shades. 

This season, jewelry commands a huge presence in the form of oversized danglers. Seen all over the runways from hoops at Alexander McQueen to heavy metal earrings at Balenciaga, and most recently on Katy Perry during the MTV VMAs’ red carpet, this is one trend you’ll want to stay in the loop in. Give this fad a try with this whimsy, metallic style from Aldo Accessories

Fall is almost always synonymous with knitwear. From basic cable sweaters to enlarged jackets, we’re highlighting a chicer way to weave this trend into your work outfit with the likes of the Bartola Sweater from Club Monaco

Wider trousers are having a moment this season, and we're loving it! For pants that are comfy and stylish, we love the Baie Pants from Wilfred, which are high-waisted, made with a silky fabric, and come in three varying colours.
