Fall Street Style: October’s outfits of the day

‘Tis that time of year again, when leaves start changing colours and falling from the trees and, most importantly, when our beloved pumpkin spice lattes are back in season.  They’re two signifiers of fall we all cherish and love, but what better way to really kick off the new season than with a beautiful vintage fisherman’s knit, or your favourite pair of knee-high boots? Whether you’re pulling out an old letterman jacket or a comfy cashmere V-neck, as the seasons change, so do trends and styles. This season is all about the 90’s vibes, athletic wear, oversized pieces, delicate accessories and, best of all, being totally authentic and true to yourself.

What better way to document these trends and attitudes than with some good ol’ Gould Street style looks? We walked around Ryerson and asked a few individuals to share a little about themselves and their personal style preferences.
