Top 5: Pre-Fall Layers

We all know that September in Vancouver means anything from 12 degrees to 25 degrees which can make getting dressed a little tricky. See how our ‘Girl in Focus’ Jamie Dunlop Khau incorporates some of this Fall’s hottest light layering pieces like a plaid blazer, a long cardigan and a soft trench into her pre-fall looks.

Plaid Blazer

Plaid blazers are HUGE this season. From double-breasted menswear inspired models to more fitted feminine versions (like this one from H&M) there are lots of options out there.

Plaid Blazer available at H&M $59.99*; Blouse Available at H&M $34.99*; Necklace available at H&M $9.99*; Camber & Grace Leggings available at RW&CO. $59.90*; Calvin Klein Patent Loafers available at Hudson's Bay $150*; LAUREN RALPH LAUREN Dryden Bucket Bag available at Hudson's Bay $208*.

Sweater Vest

A flowy sleeveless sweater vest is a great way to add a little extra warmth to your core without the full-on warmth and weight of it's "sleeved" counterpart.

Propaganda Sweater Vest available at Plenty $85*; Camber & Grace Sweater Dress available at RW&CO. $89.90*; Matt & Nat Shoulder Bag available at Below the Belt $95*; Shoes available at H&M $49.99*; Pilgrim Necklace available at Hudson's Bay $59*.


Slip a kimono on over your summer tops and dresses on those days when it's not quite warm enough to wear them on their own but not quite cool enough to put on an actual jacket.

Lovefinn Crepe Kimono available at Plenty $55*; Camisole available at RW&CO. $25.99*; Aferinna Loafers available at Aldo $90*; Jeans available at H&M $39.99*; Brass & Unity Mini Warrior Bracelets available at Privilege $48* each; Matt & Nat Clutch available at Below the Belt $110*.

Long Cardigan

A long cardigan is a serious must for Fall. Wear with everything from jeans to dresses to your favourite summer jumpsuit.

Long Cardigan available at Dynamite $59.95*; Jumpsuit available at H&M $69.99*; Suede Mules available at Le Chateau $89.95*; Necklace available at H&M $12.99*.

Soft Trench

I'm a huge fan of soft trenches. All the style of a traditional trench, yet super flowy and soft - perfect for an early Fall day!

Soft Trench available at H&M $69.99*; Monk & Lou Sweater available at Plenty $89*; Mini Skirt available at H&M $34.99*; Matt & Nat Silvi Clutch available at Plenty $115*; Design Lab Lord & Taylor Blair Ankle Boots available at Hudson's Bay $99*.
