“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald
This Sunday marks the first day of the autumnal equinox and the official start of fall. After the weeks of seasonal limbo that always seems to happen after Labour Day, the time for apple picking, harvest tables and pumpkin patches is finally upon us.
Fall is a visually spectacular time of year in Canada, with its richly coloured foliage in burnt oranges and golden yellows peppering the landscape, and a refreshing crispness in the air that seems to inspire the feeling of a fresh start.
One of the most beautiful places in Ontario to observe this natural phenomenon is the tucked-away town of Kenora, which is where our Fashion Forecast takes us this week. Nestled within a glorious sweep of forests on the north shore of the Lake of the Woods, Kenora is a vibrant town that has somehow, almost miraculously, been transported into a pristine wilderness setting.
It is the ideal location to experience all of fall’s best offerings, from the natural beauty of the landscape to fresh produce at the local farmers’ market0 to first-class hunting and fishing opportunities. The weather in Kenora this weekend is promising to provide prime conditions for all of these activities, with sunny highs of 13-17°C.
When selecting the perfect autumn ensemble, what could be more quintessentially Canadian than a flannel jacket? This checked style from Zara will keep you cozy while enjoying the great outdoors, and also plays up this season’s navy trend. Complement this palette with a pair of bottle green skinny jeans, like these ones from J Brand -- their moto-style accent panels give them a serious sartorial edge.
Next up, some lug soles (we’re loving Frye’s Sabrina boot) will keep you comfy during nature walks while still allowing you to look chic for coffees in town afterwards. And be sure to wear them with somewooly socks for when things cool down at night.
Another great way to stay bundled up for the weather in Kenora is to accessorize with a chunky infinity scarf. Finally, add a touch of glam to your outfit with some with some subtle jewelry—these golden knot earrings from J.Crew are a classic style, which will perfectly match the rest of your heritage-inspired outfit. Happy hiking!
