Effortless style is easy to have during the warmer seasons. Mostly because you can just put on a short dress paired with some cute flats and you’re good to go. Emma Watson put the trendy in casual while she was shopping in New York City this week. Love her pairing of the drawstring pants, a simple striped tee and cardigan. Those soft yellow loafers just add to this actress’s effortless style.
Want to look trendy while dressed casual? Try these pieces:
Do: Faux fur
Krystin Lee, 26 - Furrrrrrr is a must-have this winter season! It’s the perfect way to transform a simple outfit into “high class” without spending too much! The brown really compliments this full-on navy blue attire.
Do: Cable Knit Sweater
Christina C. – Overgrown sweaters paired with a lumberjack shirt is definitely the way to go. The colours just go so well together and the gold jewelry really add the fancy element to this laid back outfit.
Do: Corduroy pants
Samantha Pereira – The fur vest and corduroy pants really compliment each other; two unique textures that offer a little extra something to any look. And the pairing with the suede wedges is excellent!
Do: Coon hat
Gabrielle Miau - All I have to say about this look is the coon hat. Have you ever seen someone look more Canadian? And the leopard print wedge boots are perfection!

It’s cold/wet out which means the majority of us are wearing super dull and dark colours — my favourite! Yes, this colour scheme can get boring after a while but there are always ways in which you can add a little spunk to a boring yet stylish look. It’s all about finding the right pieces that are unique in some way! And that’s exactly what these college fashionistas did!
Do: Red pants
Angelina Irinici, 22 — Black, beige and brown is typical for the the fall season and can get a bit boring. So why not add a little colour to your fall wardrobe? Red pants are a must have. This look consists of all the fall favourites this season. The brown combat boots toughen up her red pants and aztec print sweater.
Do: Blue accents
Caryn Ceolin, 20 — You can’t go wrong with black! It’s the perfect shade because you can add any burst of colour and get away with it. Ceolin’s blue bag and YSL ring really make statements on a gloomy day.

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.
Jeyan Jeganathan, 21 — Vests may be too formal for school (like that’s stopping anyone) but a vest-hoodie adds the “cool” element to your look.

Fashion Week isn’t only about designers and their mega-fabulous runway shows. The pool of photographers waiting for your arrival gives you all the more reason to be more adventurous with your style.
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.
“Wear a coat as a dress,” says Anna Dello Russo in her Fashion Shower video for H&M. Now we understand why that’s one of her top ten fashion rules. This coat is stylin n’ profilin’. And those golden shades top off this plain-Jane look beautifully.
2. Stripes lovin’
Striped pants were a hit this past summer and now the trend is easing its way into fall. It’s a smart way to enhance a simple look such as this one — a plain grey top and leather jacket.
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!
