Autumn in Canada is such a lovely time of year. The leaves start to change colour painting a beautiful natural background, cool breezes start to whip by, the days get shorter and the nights longer.  It’s a very special time of year and with cooler temps comes the anticipation of Fall Collections where we see hot trends emerge. Today, more than ever there are so many ETHICAL Canadian designers to choose from and the best part is, you don’t have to sacrifice style at all! 



Layered coats were a hit on the runway with designers laying with layers, combining different textures and dimensions to create new silhouettes.

The coats were key – voluminous shapes that cut and flared, some with scalloped edges some soft and flowy.

The Alchemical linen coat from Horses Atelier is a great place to start. It’s oversized and would be easy to layer with a warmer coat over top.

Horses work with natural fabrics sourced from family-owned mills in Italy and Japan and create custom colours and prints. Everything is sewn a mile from their Toronto studio.

The Christopher Coat from the House of Suri would make layering pretty easy, the two-toned fabric creates an ideal colour contrast – subtle yet effective! Fold the sleeves off to show off the contrasting colour. Did we mention how cozy this coat is?

Pleats are one of autumn’s most prevalent details, particularly on mid-calf skirts and the details are really in the styling: wear over trousers like Valentino or, with a tight bright knit a la Topshop.  Soft and feminine but you can always add an edgy boot, loose sweater or even a leather jacket.   

Totally crushing on this white, relaxed fit accordion pleat dress from New Classics with crinkled short sleeves with ties at sleeve and a crew neckline, made with Modal, a variation of rayon, modal is a high-yield cellulose biodegradable fibre made from beech trees and is known for its high wet strength and extra softness.

When the temps drop and you need someone or something to cozy up to, the blanket coat is perfect.

See on runways from Givenchy to Dior. Drape it, belt it, pin it closed—you can’t go wrong with a blanket coat.

We’ve given you two options here, one that is very structured from Amanda Maria.

It’s perfect for the right amount of warmth over a tank or tee, or layer over your heaviest sweater or leather jacket for that added heat. This cape has small shoulder pads and seams for perfect shaping, pockets and a leather accent strip by the zipper.

 You can achieve a similar look with this more gorgeous, oversized sweater from Hendrik Lou.

It’s oversized, hand knitted wool that comes in some great colours and is also 100% fair trade. Got to love that!

One of fashion’s more hearty trends for this fall is tweed. We love this reboot. Tweed is warm and versatile and a kind of a throwback to the 80’s. Made famous by Coco Chanel, its a must have this season. The best place to find it is on eBay and in Thrift shops like Value Village.
