It’s hard to see hot summer days go and say goodbye to shorts and bikini weather. Being born in summer in a hot country (Pakistan) where summertime temperatures like 40-45 C is considered quite normal, i’m quite partial to worshipping and chasing the sun. But fall is quite an otherworldly spectacle specially in Vancouver where we get to witness in awe mother nature paint our city into a myriad of delicious warm hues. Gold, crimson, burgundy, mustard trees remind us the beauty of impermanence. We certainly wouldn’t appreciate summer if there was no winter.
Here are my top trends for Fall Fashion. PS for makeup eyeliner is in, whether you like a full on cat eye, or just a little winged liner. I’ve always been a big fan of subtly accentuating your eyes paired with a bronzed face and a nude lip. You can never go wrong with that, whether it’s for red carpet or office.

1- STRIPES AND FRINGE
For this look I wanted to mix patterns with stripes. These pants from ZARA have been the it look for many bloggers as you may have seen on instagram. Instead of opting for the matching blazer i decided to mix up the look with a floral patterned kimono with gorgeous fringe, which adds a bit of regal vibe to the look.
Both pants and fringe kimono are from Zara. The top is a vintage find.
2- FAUX FUR
Save the animals, opt for faux fur. Glad to see Gucci is finally making some changes and saying no to fur. I have atleast 10 faux fur coats in various colors and styles. And i don’t wait for the weekend to pull out my fabulous faux fur, daytime glam is a thing. During my recent trip to Europe i was rocking my faux fur coat from H&M while wandering the streets of Paris and London.
This stunning emerald green dress is from Zara.
Coat is a vintage find.
3- KIMONO ROBE
I’m quite happy with how this look turned out. Perfect street style glam look that can be taken into a girl’s night out or to a date. All the stores are filled with many styles of kimonos so shouldn’t be hard to find one that matches your personality. No i don’t keep shopping at ZARA because we have the same names but i loved their fall collection. This kimono robe with its faux fur cuff details, soft pink and floral patterns won my heart. Definitely a statement piece.
To make the look more relaxed for daytime i paired it with jeans and tee, and cute cherry red beret!

4- COZY SWEATERS
Fell in love with this delicious bright warm fall sweater from H & M. I wore it to brunch with a pair of faux leather tights and kept getting asked about my outfit. If you live in London or Vancouver where it tends to be predominantly grey over winter, it’s a nice way to brighten up the day by wearing color. Some call it color therapy. So ditch your grey and black sweater be bold this winter.
