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

Pink Florals

Pink Florals

Looking out the window, it’s hard to imagine that we’re supposed to be heading towards spring. It feels like we’ll be stuck in a perpetual winter, but the shops and designers keep urging me to think about warm weather. Perhaps it’s because I am deeply longing for spring, I’m being drawn to bold floral prints. I love colorful florals anytime of the year, but with such a harsh winter I thought it would be nice to focus a few posts on some lovely spring-inducing flowers. Pink florals are some of my favorites. They’re feminine, but set against black or another dark color  they can become fashionably edgy and wild; like untamed roses. The Madden Girl floral boots are both grungy and girly, and the crop top is a sexy way to wear florals.

Feeling Blue This Season

Blue xmas

During the holiday season, golden garlands, glamorous green trees, silvery sparkles, and hot red dresses make for a festive color scheme. But this season, I’m feeling blue. While other girls are swishing cocktails in typical Christmas colors, I’m going crazy over blue tones and prints such as the ones featured in this post.
Maybe it’s the icicles hanging from the roof top or that crisp cold scent in the air, but blue bells are ringing louder than silver ones in my mind.
I love when people go outside of the holiday norm and style their homes or themselves in a manner that makes them stand out. I’d like to rock around my Christmas tree in one of the dresses above. Do you stick to holiday colors and themes or do wear what you want regardless of the holiday?

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.

Graphic Sweaters

I love graphic t-shirts and how they can make a look more fun or laid back, but when the chill of winter comes around I don’t like to be in anything but a comfy, cozy, sweater. Thank goodness some designers let me have a quirky or cute styles found in my graphic tees without compromising warmth. Graphic sweaters/sweatshirts are in this year and it’s a nice change from the typical knitted plaid or solid sweaters you see throughout the colder months. Yesstyle.com has some of the cutest collections of graphic sweaters, if you are into the more “kawaii” style. (I will be dedicating a post specifically to them). But there are plenty or styles and shops offering graphic sweaters this year. Below are few I want to curl up in.
