Fall Styles For 2014

1. Swinging Sixties Baby, Yeah!

Thanks to designers such as Louis Vuitton and Gucci (just to name a few), we'll be hanging out in mini-skirts, Mary Janes, graphic tees and the modern-day version of the go-go boot.

2. Shearling Is A Safe Bet

Prada and Coach were a few labels who featured the fun fur in their fall 2014 collections. The good news? You don't have to buy a shearling coat to get in on the trend. Shearling accessories—from bags to boots—are also totally in.

3. Cozy Knits

Who doesn't love a great knit sweater and/or scarf? The super soft and cozy material was seen at Stella McCartney, Marc Jacobs and Celine in fun colours and even in pant form!

4. Elegant Frocks

Who says you can't wear a beautiful dress in the fall? No one, that's who. So thank God then for designers such as Givenchy, who sent dreamy frocks down the runway, which, when styled right, could definitely be worn to the office.

5. Colour Me Cool

Fall is the gateway to winter, which means black, black and more black, right? Wrong! Autumn is actually the perfect time to wear bright and bold colours, seen on the runways of Alexander Wang and Blumarine among others.

6. Menswear, Forever

Really though, menswear never goes out of style but it's back in full force for fall 2014. So, if you're not feeling like wearing a dress or a mini-skirt, there's a cool alternative that's definitely a head-turner.

7. Animal Attack

Animal-print is omnipresent but the print was featured everywhere in the fall/winter collections on tailored coats, boxy sweaters and plenty of accessories. But if you're afraid to dive in and get a jacket, start off with a small accessory like shoes or a bag.

8. Shoes To Write Home About

Sure, boots are cool and a total necessity for fall. But for those of us who want to get a bit more fancy there are plenty of options. Think sparkly Mary Janes, crystal encrusted boots and cool kicks that give your outfit that extra razzle dazzle.

9. Get Sporty

You don't have to look like Sporty Spice to get the "sporty" look so check out the collections of Celine, Louis Vuitton and Miu Miu for their modern take on sportswear. Fabrics such as fleece and mesh in bright and primary colours will ensure you stand out for all the right reasons (while being comfortable, to boot).

10. Oversized Coats

If Canadians have to face another bone-chilling winter like last year, then they're going to want to stock up on warm, voluminous coats. Luckily, they don't have to look like the Abominable Snowman to look chic thanks to designers like Chloe and Kenzo.
