City in Colour: Black, White + Red

by Kait Kucy · 0 comments

What is black and white and red all over? Downtown Calgary this fall fashion season, of course! This week’s City in Colour post is partially inspired by Lisa Tant’s Holt Renfrew Fall Trends Report where she addressed the presence of our favourite graphic combo as a big part of fall style. Combine that with inspiration from the bold yet simple colours of our own Calgary Tower, we are ready for a mod, mod autumn.

Sticking with the classic three-colour combo (black and white are essentially neutrals) and having that amazing red pop will truly get you noticed this season. You can’t go wrong with the bold combo of houndstooth, stripes or polkadots and mixing it all up with a bit of red.

I found some amazing items from all over CORE Shopping that fit this exciting trend. Whether your budget is DVF or Bluenotes, you can work it into your existing wardrobe and stand out in the crowd.

Where to buy:

Giraffe Stripe Pullover, Banana Republic

Zebra Pump, Diane Von Furstenberg, Holt Renfrew

Maple Tshirt, Roots

NARS Lipstick in Heat Wave, Sephora (Opening on Friday August 30th!)

Sketch Man Tee, Bluenotes

Vans Hat, Little Burgundy

Black & White Flats, Aldo Shoes

Eyeglass Case, Club Monaco

Tie Waist Dress, Gap
