Fall Trends and Where to Find Them in St Catharines

September 18 , 2012
Panoramic Properties Inc.

With fall upon us, many of us are quick to slip into our trusty old sweaters. However, there are a number of exciting new fall trends that are easy to adopt. Use these tips to help you start the new season with your most fashionable foot forward.

FALL 2012 TRENDS - Women

-        Leather
-        Pantsuits
-        50s inspired silhouettes
-        Contrasting collars
-        Graphic prints
-        Hot colours: cobalt blue, cherry red and pumpkin orange

This fall marks the return of the pant suit. In the past, the ill-fitting polyester pant-suit would make you a staple of the `what-not-to-wear` list. The more modern take on this trend reflects an adaptable option for women`s clothing. Colouring includes everything from white to jewel tones with a long and lean fit.

Look for 1950s-inspired silhouettes. When you’re shopping in St. Catharines think of the icons of ‘50s Hollywood for inspiration. Trendy pieces include pencil skirts, bow-tied blouses, skirt suits and three-quarter sleeve coats.

FALL 2012 TRENDS - Men

-        Leather
-        Baseball hat
-        Oversized fitting
-        Tuxedo Jackets
-        Shoes with metal detailing
-        Hot colours: rhubarb, blue black  and red

In a surprising move, high-end fashion designers have incorporated a staple of Canadian men`s fashion, the baseball hat. Dress the trend in a refined cap with a military influence in olive green colouring.

A peacoat is a timeless piece that men can be sure will last them beyond the Fall 2012. An oversized bold coloured overcoat is also a hot outerwear look this season. For those cost-conscious shoppers, these classic pieces can be easily sourced at a vintage or second-hand store.


Panoramic Properties’ St. Catharines apartments have easy access to a variety of local shopping options throughout the city.

If you're looking for an upscale option for women, head to Honey’s Fashion and select an investment piece such as this pumpkin orange cashmere sweater that will last you for years to come. Black and beige are a perfect complement to this season`s orange pieces. Interested in the leather trend? Then stop by The Leather Boutique.

The H&M located in the Pen Centre Mall is a great resource for both men and women to look trendy without breaking the bank. Their Autumn Essentials for Women and Season`s Must Haves for Men include contrasting collars, faux-leather jackets, trousers, boots and bow-tied blouses all coming in at under $60.

Finally, men and women of all ages can head to Jack Nash Fine Clothiers for their designer offerings and London inspired stylings for Fall 2012.
