As we enter October and move on to the last quarter of the year, we look upon the Autumn/Winter runway and wonder, "how does the bohemian look work out for the upcoming season?" A lot of people think the Bohemian trend is only applicable for sunny seasons. Fortunately, we found ways to not only recycle our summer pieces as we transit into the monsoon, but also create entirely new looks without breaking the bank! 

Bohemian isn't just for summer, here’s how you can rock the trend this Fall season!


The Perfect Chance To Layer

Take advantage of the colder days as it is the perfect chance to layer pieces. With what you already have in your wardrobe, layer scarves over dresses, open dresses over outfits, coats over maxis, or even dresses over trousers. If you plan on layering a lot, take note of the thickness of each fabric and how well it goes with your overall look. Just remember, the more layers you have, the thinner each layer should be.

Combine Prints & Colours

Contrary to popular belief, you can pull off prints and colours in a sophisticated manner. This fall, use pops of colours to accentuate a feature or draw attention to a certain detail in your outfit. If you’re more daring, try colour blocking or mixing colours that are uncommon: pastel with neon, muted with bright, or include a highly contrasting colour or detail into a low contrast outfit to create interest. The same trick works for prints. There are really no rules to what you can mix--as long as you can pull them off!

Remember Texture Is Key

One element often undermined is varying the textures of an outfit. Playing with textures and weight can immediately elevate a simple outfit and your layering game. Think fur, tweed, embroidery, cut-outs, pleats, knit, leather, fringe--the possibilities are endless!

Go For Lengths 

Here’s proof that you can still wear that summer dress and flare pants--both at once! Not a fan of long coats? Replace crop tops with knits and throw on a cropped jacket instead. Play with proportions and volumes, try dropping the waistline, and bring up the boots.  

Get Creative

Want to wear a summer dress but it doesn't quite give you the coverage you need? Covering your neck, ankles, hands and feet is key. Thin, long-sleeved knits and leggings work best and it doesn't compromise your silhouette. For extra precaution, bring a big silk scarf in your bag for your neck or shoulders when you need it. This trick works wonders!

Bonus: Don’t forget to match your makeup look to your look with in-season colours such as burgundy, orange and hazel. Here’s a makeup tutorial to show you how. Have fun reinventing your Autumn/Winter bohemian looks!

“When I meet you, I know you are part of my tribe because of the clothes you wear.”

It has been quite a year for Coach and its Creative Director Stuart Vevers as Fall 2015 marks another visual display that reflects a journey across America. An almost complete turn-around from their Spring 2015 collection that re-imagines the American journey, the Fall 2015 collection is centred on the idea of “Brooklyn meets the Great Plains,” with the concept of a city-to-country vibe reflected throughout the collection.

It's all about creating a visual rendering of the nomad life, someone who traverses from place-to-place, city-to-country, each time drawing inspiration from each destination--with fashion, lifestyle, memories, and place converging in a collection that empowers the tribe generation. 

In dark hues expected from a Fall collection, the pieces taken both individually and as a styled whole aim to sharpen that association and connection that happens when you encounter and experience the charm of the familiar.

Stuart Vevers has essentially taken the quintessential American life, honing in on the iconic references to create new, modern iterations--turning the known and familiar into something uniquely Coach.

Read on to see the #squadgoal ready looks we love from the Coach Fall 2015 collection.

Be A Wandering Magpie

The highlight of this look is the Embellished Racer Jacket that is all about capturing the movement of people and the memories they've learned to collect with a touch of toughness and rebellion. The jacket is embellished with more than 30 hand-assembled pins that can be rearranged or removed for ultimate personalization. It's a look inspired by the image of that nomad Coach Girl who takes a little something with her from every place she visits as she journeys across life. 

Channel That Tough City Spunk

This Applied Pocket Dress features an ever-flattering fit and flare silhouette and a patchwork of graphic Americana prints juxtaposed with knit fabric. It's a look that's all about the subtle balance of utility, luxury, and tradition. Paired with the Zip Moto Boot that's inspired by vintage tanker styles, it quickly elevates the look by taking the Coach Girl from country-sweet to be all tough and refined with a dash of city spunk.

Go For That Luxe Comfort

The highlight of this look is the Patchwork Aran Funnelneck that is all about taking the familiar and making it new. Inspired by traditional fisherman's sweater and combined with all-American patchwork, this intricate piece is all about movement and tradition with hand-knit precision. After all, luxe comfort is all about the juxtaposition of shapes and cuts, creating a silhouette that looks comfy and chic. It makes the Coach Girl relatable, familiar, and not at all intimidating. 

Hone In Your Street Edge

This look is all about taking the Coach Girl and having her embody that tough street edge--elevating her look into a visual rendering of Stuart Vevers journey across America. It's a well styled city-street look with a pop of patriotic spunk, as seen in the Flag Intarsia Sweater which presents a luxurious rendering of the stars and stripes. The look is topped off with a NOMAD Block Letters Necklace for a touch of playful innocence of school days and the freedom of the open road.

Embrace The Layers

Fall season is all about the soft transition into layers, taking the flowy silhouettes of Spring/Summer and adding a touch of heaviness to the look with the introduction of darker hues and chunky layering. For a slouchy, layered look reminiscent of varsity jackets from high-school days in the country, the layering of the Sheepskin Sleeve Jacket and Skulls Silk Foulard Square Scarf gives the Coach Girl a tough-yet-luxe look for a mix of old-school carefree days with the tough-and-rough days in the city.

Dress for the occasion, but always inject your own take on style

Heidi’s blog focuses on the working woman and her corporate wear. And before you dismiss the concept of fashionable workwear, we suggest you reconsider--times have changed, corporate chic is in. “You need to take into account where you’re going, how you’re going to be perceived, and take that into your own personal style,” says Heidi.

Pair classic pieces with contemporary pieces and withstand the test of time

For Heidi, it’s all about easy, effortless elegance. No matter where she is, she always aims for a subtle polished look. That’s probably why the hair and makeup team from Laneige chose to accentuate one facial feature, a modern smoky look for Heidi’s gorgeous eyes, and toned down the rest of her maquillage with classic nude shades. Who knew that pairing the old and the new can give a whole new, refreshing take on style?

Don’t jump into the latest trends just because

Her ultimate style advice? “Take baby steps when going into styles or trends. Don’t try to go the whole haul. Incorporate that into what you already have.” Good call! We say, embrace your individuality and let it define you.
