The Bay: Fall 2012 Trend Report

We had the pleasure of attending The Bay's Trend Report, presented by their fashion director, Suzanne Timmons. Kat and I are both huge fans of The Bay and try to get as many pieces from the "White Space" as possible during the sale season and Bay Days. They've completely transformed the space and have brought in some really great designers like, Sandro, DVF, Equipment, Elizabeth & James, McQ, and not to mention their huge TopShop store.

Suzanne walked us through some of the biggest trends of the season (Kat had touched on some of these trends here):
  • Rich Colour - forest green, oxblood, mustard
  • Statement Prints - florals will never die!
  • Luxurious Texture - tweed, leather, suede, fur, cashmere
  • Black and Bright - the updated colour blocking
  • Baroque - perfect for the holiday season (including office Christmas parties!)

We took some photos of our favourite outfits - ones that we really wanted to rip right off the model's backs and charge through the security guards with.

Rich colour - the key is keeping the look all in the same colour palate
This magenta coat by DKNY is definitely on my shopping list this Fall (buy it here)
Head to toe in Elizabeth & James
I love love loved this mixed florals look

We're loving how Houndstooth is making a come back this season! Here are some cute houndstooth items to add to your collection: Classic black and white; Small houndstooth print; Houndstooth dress and skirt (both on sale!). 

Using silk scarves as an accessory is a timeless trick, especially for updating work wardrobes
Luxurious Textures - tweed, leather, fur, and cashmere

I am loving the Sandro camel coat in the middle. Camel coats are sophisticated and a great alternative to black. Check out The Bay's Top 10 coat collection for some other camel options.

Black and Gold - Perfect for Holiday Parties (Buy the BCBG cocktail dress here)
My eyes (and wallet) went straight for the prints rack after the presentation
Ended off the night with a Kale and tofu salad at Fresh


  1. I want it all!

    I have to say, houndstooth prints scare me. I don't know why...

    that chunky yellow & forest green patterned sweater on the rolling rack is gorgeous. i would look nice in that black and gold dress...hello vanity!!


  2. I want it all too!

    Try houndstooth in a small dose, like a skirt or scarf, and wear it with solids - It's so classic, it just reminds me of winter!

  3. Loving the prints and colors. xx
