Beyond Plaid: Great Alternative Prints For Fall

I’m so tired of plaid for fall. Every autumn season, it’s the same thing plaid and darker toned knits. I generally love plaid, but I think there are a number of other patterns that a person can wear from September to December.

I love this bird print long skirt from ChicWish. It’s till very in line with fall without being same old boring plaid.

The Brainstorm Forum cardigan from Modcloth quickly caught my eye. I love the deep navy blue color and the bold print.

Here’s another Modcloth find that I adore. It’s very Boho chic and a great way to incorporate prints into your wardrobe for the fall. In fact, I think this dress would work all year round.

Just because it is fall, doesn’t mean you have to stop wearing floral. This dress from Super Dry is actually called a “fall print dress.” It’d be perfect for any autumn party.

If you want a more “classic autumn” colored print, then you can’t go wrong with this 70s vibe top from Moonsoon. Folkloric floral are beautifully displayed on this autumn top, making it a perfect escape from plaid.

Perhaps on of my favorite prints is this marble one from Topshop. It’s a unique standout way to dress for fall.

Plaid is fine, but there are other prints out there that work great with the season. This year, I’m stepping away from the ordinary and embracing so more bolder unique prints.

Grey Days in Autumn

Grey days in Autumn

ONLY short dress, 38 CAD / Boohoo skater dress, 27 CAD / Uniqlo dress, 72 CAD / Topshop sweater dress, 100 CAD / Pocket dress, 285 CAD

Our style gets darker as the days get shorter. Maybe we feel a little dreary, maybe we just like to mix in darker hues into our looks. But come autumn you see richer darker colors. I’ve always thought you can still wear bright tones even in the dead of winter but I can’t help gravitating towards grey when autumn approaches. It’s just such a versatile color.

A grey colored dress can be added to bright red heels to give you a pop of color. Grey lets you add colorful statement accessories without looking too overdone.

The Nora Dress from Toast shows us that grey doesn’t have to be boring and drab. I love the Rose print incorporated into the wool; perfect for fall.

Grey days don’t have to be any less stylish. There’s nothing wrong with a little less color.

To add to your grey skies day, here’s an autumn dark tune from the neighborhood

Print Scaves For Fall


Scarves are nothing new for fall, but this year instead of sticking to solids and the odd strip pattern, I thought I’d try some multicolors and prints. Our wardrobs can get so dark and drab once the weather starts to get cool, so having a colorful scarf can really help to add some color to one’s look. I like all the scarves featured in this post, especially the Pieces Ismo tube scarf. The blue mixed with the flower print is just the thing to keep my outfits from the ‘dark’ ages this fall.

I like sushi!

sushitopI got excited when I saw this top because I really do like sushi. I also felt the top was cute. But I’m a little puzzled as to why there is a mouse on rice. It would make more sense to me if it was fish. Why can’t the cat eat fish LOL. Well regardless, the top looks warm. It can be found here

Reminds Me Fall

I’m doing my best to keep my mind on summer (or what’s left of it) but my eye keeps catching Autumn colors. The browns, reds, and oranges are a beauty to see  through the the city and forests. All I keep thinking about is turning my closet in an Autumn inspired forest of clothes. Don’t get me wrong, I love summer colors but there’s something about the oranges, reds, brown hues in the clothes featured in this post that make me wish it were Autumn already– with falling leaves, pumpkin flavored lattes, and no excuse needed to wear leather.

Rising New Talent: Anne Sofie Madsen

Do I like her because she was trained by John Gallianno, or because she worked for Alexander McQueen? No, though her impressive resume defiantly makes her an interest in the fashion word. As a designer, Anne Sofie Madsen creates the stunning head turning pieces you expect from couture, but in a way that makes them wearable and that is why I like her. Her pieces are crisp, clean, and futuristic, yet chic.

Her W/F 2012 collection takes inspiration from a tragic horror story: Sedna–the half skeleton and half human Inuit goddess of the underworld.

The skeleton of Sedna is depicted in the work with techniques inspired by carvings in Ivory from the Inuit tupilak figures. The human side of Sedna shows a more vivid figure expressed through the patterns and fringes covering the garments. Silhouettes inspired by Victorian menswear contribute to the atmosphere of the horrendous story.

Expressive and beautiful, this collection bring to life the characters of the 19th century horror literature.
