The Wide Belt: A cinched waist is a leading silhouette for Fall/Winter 2015.  Designers wrapped wide belts over coats, dresses, jumpsuits and vests, bringing an hourglass appeal to almost any outfit.

How to Wear it to Work:  This is one of the easiest trends to incorporate into your fall wear. Try it:

  • Over your favourite blouse for visual interest  
  • Over a cardigan or blazer for a structured silhouette
  • Over high-waisted skirts and trousers for a polished look
  • Over a loose sweater or tunic to create shape
  • With a dress to emphasize curves

The Pussy Bow: The basic blouse just got a lot more interesting! The pussy bow is a classic, polished look that caters to a career girl’s need for flair.

How to Wear it to Work:  Swap your androgynous collared shirt for this romantic alternative. Outside of work, you can wear the ends loose with slouchy pants for a fabulous deconstructed look.  

Windowpane Plaid: Hailed the “gingham of fall”, windowpane plaid offers an interesting alternative to traditional suiting prints like plaid, pinstripe and hounds-tooth.

How to Wear it to Work:  Windowpane offers a conservative, androgynous vibe that’s perfect for business wear. It’s a natural alternative for a classic suiting pieces like trousers, collared shirts, blazers and pencil skirts.

Camel:  This neutral tone is making quite the splash this season, not only for outerwear, but also for basics, like sweaters and pants.
