Some will suggest that the very best part of fall is the beauty of the season; colourful leaves, stellar sunsets and a layer of shiny dew on green grasses.
Others will point to the bountiful harvest; sweet apples, crunchy pears and Pumpkin Spice Lattes. (Oops, do those count as harvest?)
Me? I’m all about fall fashion. For weeks I have been admiring chunky, cable knit sweaters; soft, oh-so-stretchy pants and structured, fashion-forward footwear.
Notice a theme with the items I’m coveting? They’re all a nod to chic comfort – the best way to take on fall style. Because, if you’re like me, the most important thing about a fashion trend is that it’s actually wearable! And there is nothing chic about hobbling around in too-high heels or too-tight jeans. (Trust me. Been there. Done that.) So today, I’m sharing three ways to sneak comfort into a chic wardrobe.
1. Find the Perfect Pair of Jeggings. What the heck are jeggings? Just the most perfect marriage between jeans and leggings. For those occasions where jeans will do but leggings are too casual, jeggings are the perfect choice. They’re stretchy, made of soft cotton and often imitate the look and styling of skinny jeans, without the button fly (hello breakfast buffet!). Yes, friends, pull-on jeans! And they hug your curves to give you the most flattering silhouette.
The trick is finding the perfect jeggings for your body-type; thankfully a variety of popular fashion retailers stock them year-round. Pair them with a tunic, fitted cardigan or oxford shirt.
2. The Sweater Dress. Ah, the most versatile day-to-night piece and a staple for every fall wardrobe! Sweater dresses are my go-to for comfort and style. Often made of the softest materials – including a mix of luxurious cashmere – they can be fashioned a variety of ways: under a blazer for the office, with over-the-knee boots for date night, or paired with high-top sneakers for a fun, flirty look on weekends.
Most importantly, there’s no zipper or button enclosures, no pleating or pulling, and you can find them in a multitude of colours, including fall’s must-haves (starry blue, dove gray and burnt orange).
3. ECCO SHAPE: A Shoe-In for Comfort. If you think sleek, stylish shoes can’t be comfortable too, think again. The NEW ECCO SHAPE Collection includes fall’s must have trends that deliver the comfort of a DIP (Direct Injection Production) shoe, with cutting-edge design.
(Engineering Lesson! DIP is a process where the shoe’s upper is placed into the mold, and liquid polyurethane (PU) is injected to shape an anatomically correct midsole and outsole. Thanks to robot precision, each shoe is guaranteed the same quality, regardless of the production location. It is the strongest way to attach the sole to the upper and forms a watertight seal without using glue or stitching!)
How HOT are these booties? ECCO SHAPE’s Scandinavian design lets the foot sit 15mm closer to the ground, so what looks like an elegant 90mm heel feels like a comfortable 75mm. Plus, an extremely comfortable shock absorbing footbed ensures ultimate comfort without compromising on style. With minimalist designs, premium quality and extraordinary technology, of course you need ECCO SHAPE in your fall wardrobe!
Browse the ECCO SHAPE Collection online and shop now to fall into autumn style with ease. You can also enter the Women SHAPE the World contest on Facebook and Instagram, where three lucky participants will win an item of their choice (up to $300 CAD value).
How do you sneak in comfort? Let’s chat about it – maybe over Pumpkin Spice Lattes?
