"We all know how the story goes—as the summer season begins to wind down and the leaves change to signify fall, we struggle to dress for up-and-down weather. We dress for the cool morning air, only to find ourselves searing under the midday sun. The key to surviving a Canadian change in season comes down to a simple trick: layering.
‘Tis the season of layers, layers and more layers, but it’s not as easy as just throwing on a bunch of different items. It’s a formula that takes some practice, knowledge of your own fashion sense and a few strategic wardrobe pieces, that all together will make your new life of layering a total breeze."
"Fall is all about mixing silhouettes and textures to give outfits dimension, and it’s easier than ever when you’re tasked with layering your clothes. Let your inner Gen Z E-girl out with a turtleneck worn underneath your favourite band tee. Pair a chiffon blouse beneath a cotton crewneck, lean into your patriotic side with a chic Canadian tuxedo (and have fun switching up the washes) or add elements of pleather to softer textiles like silk for an outfit that says expensive without trying too hard."
MASTER THE BASICS
"Layering is king during the fall season. Besides being a helpful tool when combatting fluctuating temps throughout the day, it also makes styling outfits a lot more fun and creative. From mixing and matching silhouettes and textures to investing in high-quality faux leather or suede pieces (think biker jackets or booties), to having fun with your accessories—there’s a ton of room to play when it comes to layering looks and there’s no better time for it than autumn."

INVEST IN THE PERFECT FAUX LEATHER JACKET
INVEST IN A PERFECT FAUX LEATHER JACKET
"A faux leather jacket is the ultimate transitional piece that will never go out of style and elevates any outfit to take it from day to night. Pair it with a pair of jeans and a white T-shirt or throw it over a dress to give it an edge for an evening event. If you get too warm, let your inner chic Parisian out and throw or drape your biker jacket over your shoulders. It adds a certain je ne sais quoi, non?
If smooth, black leather isn’t your thing, opt for a denim jacket. Jean jackets are truly a fall wardrobe staple and can add an edge to any look. From dark wash to light wash, and coloured to embellished, the amount of versatility in the denim jacket category makes it incredibly easy to find your perfect piece that suits your original style."
