This month at Klas squared, everything is about our fashion-favourite time of year: fall. September is to fashion what January is to new year’s resolutions: there is a buzz of inspiration, motivation and an opportunity for a fresh start. And although we’re soaking in every last second of summer, we can’t help but look forward to wrapping ourselves up in cozy cashmere and knotted knits as the temperatures start to cool – with all new Klas squared jewelry from the Fall Collection 2018, of course (available September 22)! As you begin to make your wardrobe transition, remember these two things: think sustainable when cleaning your closet, and make note of items that will lend opportunity to trying something new this fall.
After all, isn’t personal style all about taking risks? Today there is less of a focus on how fashion makes you look and more on how fashion makes you feel, eliminating the fashion “rules” of the past (white after Labour Day? Yes please!). From your clothes to your accessories, each piece should make you feel as though you are expressing yourself in a way that is true to who you are. And on our ever-evolving journey to discover ourselves and express our personal style, we have to learn how to take risks along the way. We’ve rounded up our favourite fall fashion trends and provided styling tips to help you feel empowered to try something new this season! We encourage you to leave a comment on the website sharing a fashion risk you can’t wait to take or letting us know which of the trends below are your favourite! Here we go…
Express yourself in 80s-Madonna-goes-to-prom inspired looks featuring bright colours, oversized silhouettes, and sequins.
Stylist tip: Petites beware – oversized silhouettes can drown your figure but a sequin dress can always bring the life to a party! After all, girls just wanna have fun.
Sophistication meets sensual in standout suiting for fall. Forget “borrowed from the boys” as these pieces are nothing but feminine, powerful, and chic.
Stylist tip: Find a good tailor. Regardless of shape or silhouette, you will look and feel your best when a piece has been perfectly suited for you.
Let out your wild side with fall’s must-have print: anything and everything animal. From jackets and skirts, to gloves and shoes, you’ll find nothing short of primal inspiration.
Stylist tip: Quality over quantity. Don’t compromise texture and material for fast fashion ensembles; best to invest in a quality accessory to start such as a top handle satchel or kitten heels.
Set your sights on the horizon with new-age western inspired designs featuring the usual suspects: fringe, suede, and shearling, and introducing newcomers prairie prints and shiny silver. This palette of rust, black, and silver, promises to pair perfectly with your wardrobe staples.
Stylist tip: Think outside the box in textures such as leather, suede, and statement jewelry. Or if the aforementioned pieces are already in your closet, pick up a pair of chic cowboy boots.
Fashion’s affinity for silk has us seeing scarves carefully crafted to create dresses, skirts, and kimonos in a variety of colours and patterns. If an all-silk ensemble is too far out of your comfort zone, a simple square silk scarf can be knotted inside a collared shirt, incorporated with your bracelet stack, or tied to your handbag to make a personal statement.
Stylist tip: Choose a motif with colours and accents that already match the go-to pieces in your closet whether clothes or accessories.
