LOOKCITY: On Local Looks, New Fall Styles & Dressing Like Richard Dreyfuss In “Jaws”

August 22, 2012.

by Jenny Bachynski | A small peek into Vancouver’s awesome Know Show. The next one is coming in January, 2013.

A consolation for the end of summer? Soon it will be time to wrap ourselves up in Kove’s beautiful 2012 Fall collection. I’m absolutely loving the inspiration photos. #1 and #2 make me want to ferry up to the Sunshine Coast come October…

Textstyles is a great Canadian fashion website where you kind can tons of interesting photography, interviews with designers and lots of giveaways. I especially love this article about dressing for yourself and no one else.

Some of the new Dace Fall 2012 collection is now available at her online shop. For a perfect Fall look, throw on the Lawson dressPatchett jacket, and a pair of tights.

This Vice piece is still making the rounds. While I don’t agree with everything on the list of reasons why Vancouverites can’t dress themselves properly (there are some pretty nice messenger bags out there), I’d nevertheless like to see us tone down the coloured bras with white t-shirts and hockey jerseys. Fat chance.

Get a kick out of Nerd Boyfriend, a fun site that teaches you how to dress the part of your favourite film icons in character (helpful for Halloween costume accuracy). My favourites include Richard Dreyfuss in JawsPeter Ostrum in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, and John Candy in Trains, Planes and Automobiles.

Kids need autumn knits, too, right? Oeuf’s new Fall collection is the perfect mix of simple with a bit of silliness. Loving the muted colours!

Herschel’s Fall 2012 collection is available now and it doesn’t disappoint. With new styles, colours and some killer prints it makes it hard to decide what you want to be carrying this season. Inspiration here.

Check out some local looks after the jump…
