FAVE 5: Fall Looks | Clozette


'Tis the season to wear earthy colours! With summer officially over, gone are the brightly coloured trends displaying at major retail outlets. Now, we enter September where comfier and nature-toned garments take over the storefronts. That said, get ready for brim hats, oversized-jackets, ankle boots and the likes parading on your Instagram feed. Here are some ideas from the Clozette Community on how to curate your own take on fall-inspired style.

Sometimes the best practical style inspiration is found on the streets and not on the runway. Harsh, but — whether you like it or not — very true especially with the advent of influencers and social media. In some way, attendees have become models themselves. Some are already sporting exclusive pieces that are yet to be released or donning chic accessories from up-and-coming brands. 


At New York Fashion Week 2019,  there's no shortage of savvy street style looks to cop. Ahead, the best ensembles we spotted.


Colour harmony



Colourful ensembles are tricky to put together, but content creator Quigley shows us how it's done. The formula seems to go like this: pick a white top, pair it with something pastel and add eye-catching outerwear. Oh, and don't forget to use a cute sling bag! 


Passion for purple



Laureen Uy is bringing purple back. It's not the easiest shade to style, so we're taking a few notes from this fashion blogger on how to make it work effortlessly. First, a white or black belt is a must; not only will it define your waist, but it can also serve as a nice visual break for your entire ensemble. Then, pair it with a mini bag that's a complementary shade to give a nice, interesting contrast.


Nude-a-palooza



Love a nude style palette? We do, too! It's classy and sophisticated, but if you're not careful about the pieces you pick, things can easily become bland. Take a cue from lifestyle blogger Sheryl and choose to wear different shades of beige to create visual layers and add a black or white piece for balance. 


Floral fan



Florals are a fashion staple of this decade and even though we're about to wrap up the 2010s, we don't think this aesthetic is going away anytime soon. Refresh your love for floral pieces by mixing up the accessories you pair them with. Instead of espadrilles, go for ankle-length boots (or sock boots for our tropical weather) and an edgy fanny pack instead of the usual dainty handbag.

These days, comfortable style is what's hot. The popularity of athleisure fashion, fanny packs and Teva sandals — styles that were all once deemed passé — is a testament to this. Even if you look at what teenagers would consider cool right now, the looks all put a premium on comfort. We're talking about oversized tees, crocs, and sporting a Fjällräven Kanken. And just recently, a new comfortable piece is entering the mainstream scene. Meet the knitted flats! 



It's designed like a ballet flat but the difference is in the material used. What makes it so comfortable is it's made from high-quality yarns that, for most brands such as Rothy's, are made from recycled plastic bottles. According to the brand's website, they have "transformed over 30 million plastic water bottles into stylish flats." As you can see, it's easy to understand the hype and love for this piece because it's stylish, comfy and sustainable.


If you want to snag a pair of knitted flats, here are some options in our region.

A homegrown brand in Hong Kong, Twenty Eight shoes have also released a few pieces featuring knitted material. Unlike most brands selling knit flats, they also have other designs aside from the block colours. However, if you're like us who love classic looks, then you'd like the JD20. This casual pair of knitted flats has a supportive back counter and memory foam socking which makes it comfier than the average shoe.
