As the weather cools down, the layers pile on. From combat jackets to fall coats, the streets of Toronto are flooded with cozy fall faves. Our fashion columnist, Sabina Sohail, scoured her college campus in search of the most stylish jackets.
Do: Combat jacket
Cassandra Juradinho, 22 — Once again, the combat jacket does not disappoint. It pretty much goes with everything — even a pink chiffon top. Pairing it with the briefcase bag is almost too perfect.
Do: A pop of colour
Maria Siassina, 20 — As much as we love the dull colours of fall, it’s nice to see a little bit of colour every now and then! The blue and purple stripes on her blazer really help enhance this black-and-white ensemble.

Despite the dreary weather in Paris this past week, fashion-forward editors, socialites and the like were anything but. Donned in their best fall gear — from tweed and leather to stripes and peplum skirts — these fashionistas really know how to embrace trends in a unique way.

3. Pretty in peplum
Here’s another summer trend that’s in full swing this fall season! And why wouldn’t it be? Peplum skirts are the essence of femininity. The best part about this look is the fact that she paired it with a comfy sweater. It’s unexpected but she’s totally rocking it!
