We’ve turned to the runways to analyze the most stylish trends that you’ll need for Fall 2018. This upcoming season focuses on soft and cosy looks, shiny fabrics including metallics and sequins and playful stripes and unique patterns.
Accessories we’ve seen this summer, such as scrunchies, large tote bags, statement earrings and bracelets will continue onwards this Fall and we aren’t complaining.

Get your credit cards out and get ready to splurge on these Fall fashion trends: 


Summer has had its perks of relaxed outfits and easy-dressing, but let’s face it, Fall is a favourite when it comes to fashion. Many influencers on Instagram have declared their love for the cooler weather and layering outfits. Although, the biggest struggle for Fall is finding that perfect coat to wear.

Get yourself a soft wool and cashmere blend coat that looks and feels luxurious this season. Whether it comes in a gingham pattern, a major Fall trend, or a modern classic coat, you’ll definitely need to purchase that perfect coat to wear in Vancouver, and make sure it won’t get damaged in the rain!


Lace brings out a theme of femininity and romantic sheerness. Semi-sheer dresses will definitely be a pre-fall trend. From classic daywear looks to edgy evening styles, we’re thrilled to see the return of lace and sheer looks.


Tote bags are perfect for back-t0-school or work, allowing all your essentials to fit into a large stylish bag. The tote appeared early this summer when bloggers were seen rocking the famous Chanel tote. This over-sized bag is also perfect for travelling and comes in many shapes and sizes.


Metallics and sequins are common for winter and we saw a lot of these key textiles worn throughout the holiday season last year. However, the shine is coming in earlier this year and we aren’t upset about it. Metallics and sequins can be worn throughout the day and appear to have a dazzling effect.

From foil coats to metallic skirts, don’t miss out on this fun and chic trend.


Contemporary styles that drape and come in vibrant colours and silky, shiny satin will be seen on the streets this season. These looks are edgy and modern, that scream “we’ve got the power,” right ladies?


We weren’t kidding when we said: “let it shine.” These high-shine leather looks are luxurious and will allow you to stand out in the crowd this season.

Glossy trousers, metallic jackets, silky satins, romantic lace and leather, we are so excited to shop for Fall this year!
