I stopped by Holt Renfrew earlier today with photographer John Smith to catch their Trend Talk to get some insight on what we should be filling our Fall wardrobes with this year. (Special thanks to the Holts team for being so kind as to reserve seats for 613style!)
VP Fashion Editor, Lisa Tant hosted the Trend Talk, making sure to keep it fresh and fun as she shared the latest in must-have fashions to get us through the Fall season looking chic, fly, and feeling on top of the world.
So, what are the trends?
According to Ms. Tant, black, white and red are the season’s hottest colours- especially if worn in colour blocks. Finding pieces that come equipped with a silhouette to give the illusion of greater curves is also essential; “No time for a work-out? Let your clothes do it for you.” Lisa joked.
Pretty in Punk
Who says you can’t be punk without maintaining your girlyness? Leathers, plaids, and studs allow even the girliest of girls to take a walk on the wild side while still maintaining their fashion comfort zone. (I personally think the first look is to-die-for!)
“There’s nothing worse than seeing a woman with an incredibly beautiful outfit on, only to watch it vanish into the shadows of a horrendous winter coat.” That phrase was pretty much unanimous amongst the women in the crowd. Thankfully, Holt Renfrew has a huge selection of fashion-forward coats that allow you to remain both trendy and warm.
Full disclosure: I’m not too sure this trend is for me. Mixing prints is incredibly hard to do, and with my sensitive eyes it’s hard to look at more often than not. Yet somehow, the Holt Renfrew team managed to pull it off!
