Toronto Fashion Week Street Style

If you read my poncho post you know that I wore a black poncho to the World Mastercard Toronto Fashion week highlight show which was open to the public Saturday.

I was in good company.

Bright bold colors have been the trend for years, but black still rules at major fashion events.

Earlier in the week I sent  street fashion photographer “Walking Canucks” out to take some shots of the fashion elite who attended the big shows. These included buyers, designers, fashion editors publicists and the like. Interestingly enough, my photographer came back with a lot of  photos of women wearing all black.  Like our neighbours to the south (New Yorkers),  Torontonians (and other Canadians) love wearing black.

Sound a little dull?- Not at all. Take a look at these interesting head to toe black outfits and the unique way these Fab After 40, Toronto fashionistas have styled them.

Cozy Up – Favorite Sweaters of 40+ Style Bloggers

If you want to get cozy wozy, this is the year to do it. The selection of sweaters out there couldn’t be better. From chunky knits, to blanket sweaters, to boyfriend cardigans, there are gorgeous woolens to suit everyone’s tastes.

Take a look at how these stylish over 40 bloggers wear their favorite fall sweaters.

Gorgeous in Gray Sweater

This fall we are easily seeing 50 shades or gray or more because fashion has fallen in love with this elegant neutral.

Atlanta blogger Joanna has too. Here she is in a cute gray shirtdress that she has layered with a  long gray cardigan that’s so soft looking you just want to reach out and touch it. Her cool over the knee, suede boots from Stuart Weitzman put the finishing touch on this fab fall look.

Joanna writes a personal blog, Poppy’s Style, about fashion, family, friends and fun. Be sure to stop by Poppy’s Style to learn more about Joanna and to take a peek at Joanna’s everyday fashions.

Pretty in Peach

You don’t usually think of peach, as a fall color but this year peach, pink and other pastel shades are a big trend, especially when it comes to outerwear.

Anne, the Irish blogger behind  the wonderful blog I Heart Styling  is right on trend in her gorgeous peach cable knit sweatercoat. It’s the perfect shade for her warm coloring and looks so rich and cozy against the autumn leaves.

This is the kind of coat that looks just as great with jeans as it does worn with this pretty dark floral dress. Anne likes to throw this on when it’s warm enough that you don’t need a heavy coat, but cool enough that you need something more than a thin sweater. Fabulous!

Be sure to check Anne’s blog for more great looks.

Black Beauty

Here’s a snuggly sweater that makes you want to cozy up this fall. Ana from Mrs. American Made looks super stylish in a black cascading sweater that she has layered over a cute print top. Love the fringed scarf. It gives the outfit a lot of personality and is a gorgeous contrast to the black. Check out Ana’s other sweater look in our Southwest style post and be sure to visit her blog where she posts about fashion made in the U.S.A.

Thanks for sharing. You all look Age-Amazing, Ladies!
