10 Trends to Add to Your Fall Wardrobe You Can Shop at the H&M Grand Reopening

Thursday, September 8, 2016


Montreal's flagship H&M revealed its new look at a fancy soirée last night before officially opening for the public this morning. Really an impeccable timing as the warm and sunny days of Summer will soon give way to Fall's cool, crispy weather. And every fashion girl knows what a seasonal shift means... Closet edit!

For years now, H&M has mastered the art of re-inventing one's own fashion sense by curating endless re-collections of the best trends of the moment. And this Fall, they've done it again, rounding up amongst their newly revamped St-Catherine's store, the 10 trends you should absolutely add to your end-of-2016 wardrobe. Click through to shop my best picks from H&M Fall 2016 and H&M Studio collections...


1. PUFFER JACKETS

   

Before you know it, the Autumn chill will settle in, and you'll have no other option but to bundle up. Why not do it in style? Whether you're going for a hike in the mountain or just a quick walk in your neighborhood, puffer jackets will keep you cozy through the falling of the leaves. This ubiquitous outerwear is known for being big on warmth and now, thanks to H&M's update on our colder months classic, it has become BIG IN STYLE!


2. RUFFLES

   

This Fall, experience the rise of the “new feminine” side of fashion and welcome back the ruffles. This season’s fresh take on ruffles can be as subtle as a chic embroidered tier on a blouse or a shirt, or as festive a relaxed set of bell-shaped sleeves. The new feminine is pretty without being precious. It's flirty yet, sweet. And you'll love how these modern feminine pieces will make your best Fall looks flourish.


3. COLD SHOULDERS

   

Interpreting the runways' sexiest look so far, please say hello to the fashionable update on this Summer's cold-shoulder trend. Great news for the ladies who love their universally flattering design, shoulder cut-outs are taking over the Fall season with their cool, flirty and timeless factor. Pair it with a strapless bra and let those shoulders pop!


4. MOCK NECKS

   

The challenge of finding a good mockneck sweater is not an easy one. But after perusing the 90s nostalgic collection at H&M, I am conviced it is one of the most popular silhouettes of the season. More utilitarian than stylish in nature, this cold-weather must have is still one of the most versatile pieces worth investing in this Fall; not quite a crewneck and not a full-grown turtleneck, but it's the perfect transitional piece.


5. SHEARLING JACKETS

   

As soon as I saw the looks on the Fashion Week runways back in February, I knew shearling would be a huge trend once the cold weather hit. Contrasted with leather, suede, denim, or even military twill, the fur-like lining of shearling jackets will keep you toasty while the stylish finish is ideal for topping off any outfit. It's fresh and oh-so seasonal!


6. BOHEMIAN DRESS

   

In true boho girl vibes, slip into this season's most swanky version of the 70s spin-off. Breezy full-lenght dresses in floral prints, graphic patterns and tea length hemlines are everywhere this Fall so you can embrace the style that's back in a big way with nothing but a simple one-item swap. Sound easy enough? Give your wardrobe that groovy vibe you've been looking for…


7. CHOKER NECKLACE

   

If you have been living under a rock and didn't get the memo yet, the choker is back and it's gaining popularity by the nanosecond! Delicate and different, there's a good reason your favorite '90s staple has somehow gotten huge again and this Fall, H&M is bringing the recent neck-ccessorize craze to a whole new lever with edgy leather alternatives and charming unicorn pendants. Are you wearing one already?


8. PLAID

   

Although for me, days of the high-school tartan mini are long gone, plaid print remains a wardrobe staple of mine. Thing is, plaid is a print with a long history, from its start in the Scottish Highlands to its preppy rise during the 1990s. So, in the hopes of escaping the stereotypical prep-school style, I'm always on the prowl for a more updated way to wear this little classic. And apparently, so is H&M


9. BOMBER JACKETS

   

Looking for the perfect cover up this Fall? I don't know about you but so often I get wrapped up in finding the perfect Winter outerwear, I forget all about Fall. But breezy nights and the nippy morning chill can really get you so you'll need an option for this season too... You'll need a bomber! The lightweight spinoff of a varsity coat is trending so hard, H&M even got its own category dedicated to the style. When practicality and style meet in one single piece, everything seems right with the world ;)


10. NECKERCHIEFS

   

Last but not least, all hail to our beloved choker necklace's big brother, the neckerchief. Spotted around the necks of our favourite street style stars, this simple piece can put a fresh spin on any outfit. Sounds a little Western, I know, but a bandana tied around your neck is the perfect compromise between cute but not over-the-top and can add an extra inch of warmth to your Fall aesthetic.
