10 Pieces to Buy for Fall 2014

the-edit-fall-2014-1-227x403

Fall is my favourite season to dress for because I enjoy layering and pairing different textures. Unfortunately I haven’t done any Fall shopping yet because I’m currently in the midst of moving. To quench my thirst, today I’m sharing a list of 10 items that I’m keen on buying when I am all settled down in my new home.

1. The Overcoat

Being a Vancouverite, Fall to me is a season of torrential downpours. Thus, it is important for me to own a heavy duty coat during this season. The Chapter Agoto Overcoat ($525) catches my eye because it’s the best armour against wet weather. I appreciate its longer length that creates a sleek shape while also providing extra coverage.

2. The New Work Bag

The bags that I use the most are the ones that are both work and weekend appropriate. The Mismo M/S Soft Work Bag ($585) is an excellent example of this. This bag is great for professionals because it has a structured shape and a document sleeve inside. Its nylon material makes this bag slightly more casual and more durable against unfavourable weather.

3. The Autumn Slip-On

My favourite part about summer was being able to wear slip-on shoes. During the Fall, I swap out my canvas slip-ons for leather or suede ones. The Creation Recreation Vento Slip On Sneakers ($90) are on my list because I’m a fan of their earth-toned and snake-embossed leather. They’re at a very affordable price point too.

4. The Trench Coat

I’m always on the lookout for a good trench coat because it can be worn in both Fall and Spring. The Han Kjobenhavn Arne Trench ($180) comes in three versatile colours at a very reasonable price point. The small size in khaki is sold out for now, but I’ll be on the lookout for replenishment.

5. The Check Blazer

Checks dominated the runways in the last A/W runway shows. If you’re looking for a good statement piece to own for this season, the check blazer is a noteworthy option. The N. Hoolywood Check Blazer ($802) features a subtle check pattern that can be easily incorporated into your wardrobe.

6. The Check Shirt

If you feel that the check blazer is hard to pull off, try the check shirt instead. The Schnayderman’s Large Check Shirt ($195) has a classic blue and green pattern that can be worn formally with a blazer or casually with distressed jeans.

7. The Baseball Jersey

I’m really digging the youthful and collegiate appeal of baseball shirts. The Shades of Grey by Micah Cohen Baseball Shirt ($115) comes in a minimalistic black-and-white design that can be styled in variety of different ways.

8. The Black Denim Jacket

While Canada gets cold quite early, I have friends in more southern regions who tell me that coat season still feels far away for them. In warmer climates, it’s advisable to opt for a lighter Fall jacket. The Raleigh Denim Denim Jacket ($325) has the sleek look of a leather jacket but it won’t make you sweat nearly as much.

9. The Earth-Toned Chinos

Chinos are the ultimate work pant for business casual workplaces. This season, I like to go for earth-toned chinos in military green or tan. The Wings + Horns West Point Chinos ($198) are a good investment because they can be paired with practicality every top.

10. The Leather Backpack

Even after University, I still find backpacks to be very useful because of their capacity. To look trendy and less like a student, opt for a leather backpack as it looks more sophisticated. This Ben Minkoff Vegetable Tanned Bondi Backpack ($295) is currently on my list.
