#ootd & Inspo: Fall Layers

Hello friends!

I live in Toronto, and the temperature here quickly drops as soon as October comes around.  the average fall temperature for October is usually around the low to mid 10s, but some lucky days, it will be high teens or hovering around the 20 degree mark (celsius – for all you Americans)

Although I will always choose summer over fall or winter, I think most people can agree that Fall fashion is the best fashion.  I love to layer, and this outfit has a mix of textures and weight, while keeping a monochrome colour palette.  (These words are so satisfying to any design student, they will tell you.)  I am wearing an oversized sweater by Urban outfitters, my favourite pleather leggings from Wilfred, a wool hat from Uniqlo, 574’s from New Balance, and a scarf that Jessy gave me. I’m not really one to overdo accessories; I really think less is more.  Always.

Oversized chunky sweaters will always be a fall staple, so here id some styling inspiration that I found on Pinterest to help you put together the best cozy fall outfit.

Pairing a long or oversized sweater with over the knee boots is a stylish but simple outfit that will create the illusion of longer legs.  In this photo the girl wore a long shirt to layer under her sweater.

Turtlenecks are another of my absolute favourites, and here Kendall is wearing a textured turtleneck sweater with shiny leather leggings – the mix of texture makes the outfit more interesting.  It looks like she is wearing converse here, but you can wear booties, any other sneaker like Stan smiths, Nike air max, or even the slide loafers that are so popular these days.

Pairing sweaters with skirts are my new thing to try, and here she kept the outfit monochrome as well, mixing a huge chunky sweater with a thin, bodycon skirt, which creates an imbalance that is interesting to the eye.
