Fall Fashion: Downtown Oakville's Top Trends for 2023

Updated: Sep 28, 2023

As we say goodbye to summer styles, which are starting to feel outdated, the fall fashion trends of 2023 are here, bringing new and refreshing finds. These trends offer a variety of looks, each displaying its own touch of autumn elegance and flair.

Ruby Radiance

Consult a design expert and the consensus is clear: Red reigns supreme in Fall 2023. Veering away from the expected subdued autumnal shades, red stands audacious and captivating, effortlessly taking centre stage in any setting or social media platform. This season, choose your desired shade—going monochrome is the quickest route to a memorable fashion statement.

If you've been waiting for a sign to expand your sweater repertoire, consider this your cue.

Whether you're clocking into an office or not, this season will inspire you to don professional attire. Fall vibes resonate with a hint of the ’80s business flair. If you're feeling it, shoulder pads might be your go-to. Chances are, you already have the essentials. Yet, adding a fresh blazer or seasonal shoes could be the zest you need.

Collarbone Chic

Elegant, alluring, and unexpectedly adaptable, designs that bare the shoulder are marking their stylish return. Dare to flaunt a bit of collarbone this autumn, and if it gets a tad chilly, drape a scarf for warmth.

Peplum's Second Act

While 'peplum' might stir memories from yesteryears, its silhouette has gracefully resurfaced. As the fashion world’s gaze shifts from Y2K nostalgia to the 2010s, peplum designs receive a modern revamp.
