Fall Jackets and Scarves
Fall jackets and scarves are a great way to stay fashionable into the cooler seasons. From local shopping options in Ottawa to home projects, Panoramic Properties has compiled a few suggestions to ensure you’re looking your best this fall.
Bayshore Shopping Centre
Just a few blocks west of Baseline Court, fashionable guys can check out Jack and Jones. Located at the Bayshore Shopping Centre this menswear shop carries lightweight to medium jackets with a trendy slant.While you’re at the Bayshore Shopping Centre, pop over to Toxik Clothing. This store is another trendy option for both men and women. Shoppers can pick from a number of fashion lines including: Diesel, True Religion, Rudsak and Lucky 7. Mackage, Toxik’s boutique brand of outerwear, was created with young Canadians in mind. These unique pieces have a chic silhouette and show a sexier side to the fall season.
If you’d prefer to stick to the classics, check out The GAP, Urban Trade, and 1850. All located at the Bayshore Centre, these stores have great selections of fall wear including jackets, hoodies and pea coats.
Looking towards winter…
To quote Game of Thrones: “winter is coming." Keep this in mind when buying a fall jacket and consider what you’ll need when the snow falls. Seek out a layered jacket that can transition from fall to winter.
Located at 464 Bank Street, the sports shop Tommy and Lefebrve is not far from the Baseline Court area. The store carries a wide range of popular brands, including Oakley, Burton, Blizzard, and Nordica. There are also several ski and winter gear shops nearby, including Sport Chek at the Merivale Mall, Mountain Equipment Co-op, and Kunstadt Sports just east of Carlton University.
Now that you have the perfect jacket, you need a great scarf to match. Whether you’re looking for a bold fashion statement or simply a means to keep warm, scarves are a perfect mix of fashion and utility. If you opt for a lighter jacket, consider purchasing a heavy-knit yarn scarf. For something more eye catching, try a lacy crochet scarf. Crochet patterns are in this fall with major brands from Prada to Abercrombie featuring this look.
A scarf is a great beginners knitting or crochet project. Make sure to check that the yarn or thread type will not irritate your skin. Knitting and crochet lessons are offered at the downtown Ottawa Public Library or privately run lessons are available at yarn store Wabi Sabi.
