Staff Picks: F / W 2013 Part 1

Tuesday, 1 October 2013

Hi Everyone,

We're so glad to be back and posting, and we thought that now would be the perfect time to do a segment on our own fall favourites from Aritzia & Zara. This summer most of our paycheques were spent paying off our expensive shopping habits, so it is more than appropriate to write about some great pieces from the places we get some great discounts.

This season there are so many trends we are excited to sport. While we wish there was time to share them all, for the purpose of keeping it short, we're only going to post our top five picks in order to give you guys a general idea of some shapes and styles we're loving for the Fall & Winter.

We've broken this post down into two parts. So keep an eye out for part 2: Jaein's Staff Picks from the Zara F/W Collection.


Steph's Top 5 Aritzia Fall Favourites

This Wilfred Free Parleur Dress ($70) is a must-have, essential dress for the fall. A long sleeved, midi dress is such a versatile item to have in your closet. It's a great piece to be layered for a sophisticated, yet casual look (great for on campus), and looks especially rad accessorized with a cute beanie and some ankle boots.

This Wilfred Free Dree Hoodie ($150) is something I also know I'm going to get a ton of use out of. It's a really soft and oversized hoodie, with just enough faux leather detailing to give it that extra edge. Perfect for those lazy days where I want to throw something comfy on and still look like I put effort in.

This Wilfred Beaugrand Blouse ($135) is just the understated blouse that I've been looking for. Its combination of sleek paneling and minimalist appeal is a great nod to the reoccurring women's trend of menswear.

This Wilfred Telegraphe Trench Coat ($295) is on the pricey side, but any loose fitted crepe trench is the perfect fall jacket, which can also be worn in the Springtime. Either way,  a trench is such a timeless piece.

This Wilfred Chatou Vest ($225) is another piece of outerwear that I love. Its sophisticated design combined with the use of soft, textural sherpa creates such a modern silhouette.

I know Aritzia usually carries higher priced items, but I highly recommend everyone to check out my favourite in-house brand: Wilfred Free. WF clothing items feature a perfect, combined aesthetic of casual and sophisticated, with most pieces falling into a reasonable price range (which is great for students on a budget).

Hopefully you guys are able to use our staff picks as a sort of mood board for some inspiration on what kind of shapes and styles too look for in the upcoming season.

As always, thanks for taking the time out of your day to come check out our blog. Keep and eye out for Part Two!

Much Love,
