The fashion forecast? Retro style and hip 1970s vibes reign for fall, with a high chance of soft colours and form-fitting fabrics that will make you feel extra cosy. At Wearable Stories, we’re looking at sustainable style with a modern edge and a funky feel.

Fabrics like velour are popping up all over the place as the summer temperatures start to drop and we turn to warmer wardrobe pieces that can help us transition from the dog days of summer to the bright colours of autumn leaves and cooler days. Velour is a versatile, warm choice that looks fun in all shades.

Made from 98% cotton and 2% elastane, it’s form-fitting without being constrictive, and its versatility makes it a great choice for those days when it’s not quite cold but there’s a definite hint of autumn in the air.

Summer’s Over, But Sunny Style Continues

One of the items on our list? The Maureen dress in fabulous bright tobacco brown. This slightly stretchy wear-anywhere shirtdress ties at the waist for a perfect fit every time, and lets you be in charge of your look — dress it up or down according to your mood and occasion.

Go glam in a snap by adding a few accessories, like the Eden bracelet or the Barcelona earrings. Heels or boots help complete the look, which can take you from office hours to happy hour without a lot of fuss. Feeling a bit more casual? Slip on your best white sneakers and a denim topper if it’s chilly, and you’re good to go for the weekend or casual Friday.

Mix it Up in the Michelle Jumpsuit

A workwear classic goes modern — with a retro feel — with our Michelle jumpsuit, in crisp, fresh white or classic denim blue. Keep it casual for a lazy Sunday or dress it up for date night — it’s all about flexibility, fun and freshness this fall.
