From equestrian elements to bold pops of colour, there’s a noteworthy new ‘it’ element for every style preference. In an effort to streamline the style search, we’ve rounded up 10 trend-matching finds from Canadian brands to help you start your fall season in style.
Hot to trot
Equestrian fashion — think tailored blazers, sleek leggings and tall boots — is a highlight of the fall fashion season. Toronto-based brand Ellie Mae captures the stable style with this Nelson Blazer. The tailored topper features an eye-catching plaid print in soft shades that ensure it will pair well with pretty much every piece in your closet.

Pop of pink
Stomp in style this season with these Lana Pink Front Zip boots from the Montreal-based brand Maguire. The thick-soled style hits two trends in one — Barbie-like pink and a hiking boot-inspired shape — while also being functional, thanks to a water-resistant leather upper and a good-grip chunky sole.

Rounded bags have been an ‘it’ item for a while now. Whether you consider them a croissant, half-moon, semicircle, hobo … the list of possible names goes on, the main takeaway of this trend is the silhouette is sweetly circular. We love this made-in-Canada Mini Lola Cloud Bag from the Toronto-based brand Roots. Available in a selection of shades, the shoulder style is crafted from buttery soft pebbled leather and features a top zip for easy access.

Aviation-inspired pieces are also having a ‘moment’ this season, with flight-style jackets being a key talking point. We’re partial to the way this Sanna coat from the Montreal-based brand Noize plays with the trend. A faux-leather exterior pairs with a plush shearling-like interior for a chic-and-cosy take on a pilot’s coat.

Invest in an item that you will wear for a lifetime like these Statement Gold Hoop earrings from the Mayari collection by Vancouver-based jewelry brand True Curated Designs. Part of a collaboration between designer Tori Dundas and local influencer Alicia Haque, the collection is inspired by “inner strength, empowerment and calm through uncertainty.”

Try the trend with these Emily Slim vegan leather pants from the Montreal-based brand Yoga Jeans.
