Pro-tip: sometimes you can find gems in the men’s section if your willing to step out of the box. This shirt is from one of those instances and I love the over-sized looks it’s giving me. Styling it isn’t so hard eather since all I had to do is off set it with some skinny jeans to keep things simple.

Mustard has been the colour of the season. Which is ironic considering that brands have been saying that yellow is a hard colour to sell. It’s great when things get flipped on its head. This is especially good news for me, because I’ve always been obsessed with yellow.

Sweaters are perfect for keeping warm. But you know what’s better than a sweater? A sweater dress. There are a tone trending this season and I love it. The one I’m wearing is from Simon’s and the bold stripes really help this outfit pop. It’s the perfect cross for keeping warm in winter and not having to sacrifice style by constantly wearing jeans and sweaters.

Deciding that I wasn’t going to let the weather completely dictate what I was going to wear is a conclusion that took me a while to come to. When I bought this skirt, I saw myself styling it for fall and to have it sit in my closet was a damn shame and made me feel guilty.

So, I sucked it up and decided to go for a chic look. I paired it with a turtleneck to keep warm and added some silver accessories to pull it all together.

Lately, I’ve looking a lot at men’s fashion and getting inspired by how they dress. So I decided to go for a masculine street style look to go with the weather we’ve been having.

I layered one of my favorite sweaters on top of  a white t-shirt to keep warm and kept the colors to minimum with a pair of black pants. This keeps the focus on one particular part of my outfit and keeps the overall look well-balanced.

Out of all the fall/winter trends that have been going around lately, my favorite has to be the shearling coat. I love how it kind of looks like an average jacket with a layer of comfort that doesn’t sacrificing style. I found the one I’m wearing from the thrift shop for only $20. To keep this look chic, I keeped my pieces simple with a black and white scheme. I find it really helps with Parisian vibe I was going for.

I love the look of mesh and I think it adds an edge to anything you’re wearing, but not all mesh is made the same. The one I’m wearing is slightly thicker than what’s popular at the moment. But it does the job non-the-less.

We’ve all heard of layering for fall and how it transforms an outfit. I’ve decided to take it a step forward and try out layering outerwear. Now this might seem a little stuffy, but it actually feels great. For once I don’t completely hate fall.

The best way to do it is layering of different sizes. This helps me not get too stuffy and sometimes layers can get uncomfortable. So pairing a thin jean jacket with an oversized coat leaves room for movement.
