How to Style a Cozy Sweater (And still look Chic)
My Go-To Outfit for Fall 2017
A fluffy vegan sweater and faux-leather are the perfect pairing for a stroll through The Junction.
Honestly, what garment screams “It’s fall!” more than a chunky knit sweaters? Just thinking of them paints pictures of red, gold and orange leaves in my mind. And, oddly, everything starts smelling like pumpkin spice lattes… But I digress. Sweaters are a staple of fall and they come in a variety of shapes, colours and fits to suit a variety of looks.
But what about those days when you prefer to envoke more “badass” vibes than “school teacher”? Grab your sunglasses and some faux-leather pants. This lesson’s super easy.
Serve with plenty of attitude: I’m not much of a wallflower, but I’m 100% positive that slipping on some badass accessories will make anyone feel confident. Turn up the rock factor with faux-leather pants, chain details, and messy hair.
Walk this way: Colour and proportion are key! Match the colour of your boots to your pants. And if your sweater is bulky, pair it with fitted pants and shoes that tapper to a point. Both of these tricks keep the outfit balanced and your legs looking long. Especially if you’re on the shorter side, like me.
The Junction in Toronto’s West End
It was a beautiful fall day in The Junction. And I couldn’t resist popping into some of my favourite shops! Delicious vegan cookies baked fresh at Bunner’s Bakery are a must when strolling on Dundas West. The Junction is home to some of best vegan eats in the city. A big bonus if you live in the area is The Sweet Potato, which is the best organic grocery store west of the Big Carrot. In addition to a bunch of vegan munchies, they also sell natural beauty lines like Andalou Naturals, Desert Essence, and Sukin.
