The fall style reports are out in full force - acting as our sherpas, and guiding us through the vast and complex world of runway fashion. And like each season before this one, there’s a plethora of trends that graced the catwalks of our favourite designers. Now, it’s up to the editors and our instincts to discern which trends will break away from the pack, and which will emerge as elusive (i.e. not for the faint of heart).
Curious? The team at Toronto designer consignment online boutique, Suite ADORE, has assembled its newest finds - and trust us, they’re worth it! Read on for three of this year’s reigning runway styles, and a perfect fashion-pairing to match.
Trend #1: Check On It!
Shop 70’s Inspired Check Patterns (and Plaid + Houndstooth)
Tweed and tartan and houndstooth - oh my. Almost every designer that showed this season, featured one form of box-print or another, from vivid 90s plaids at Versace, to refined checked patterns at Hermes, and rusty-hued plaids straight out of the 70s at Stella McCartney. Shop our selection now!

Trend #2 Knockout Knits
Shop Grandpa Knits, Chunky Sweaters & Embellished Styles
For as long as there is fashion, there is certainty that sweaters will dominate Fall/Winter seasonal trends - but this autumn, look for statement-making styles that don’t just keep you cozy, but leave your closest friends turning green with a shade of unflattering envy (it’s harsh, but you know it’s true). Chanel and Erdem had some of our faves, and if you can find a style with a Western influence - another huge fall trend - even better.
