Jean Fleming’s Style Guide
Personal Shopper and Image Consultant at The Hudson’s Bay Queen Street

The 70’s era has been a major influence for this fall season, with the return of fringe details, suede, flared denim and bold prints walking the runways. It is all about pairing loose silhouettes with bold prints and texture to really make a statement.  My personal favorite picks for this trend are this Thakoon shearling navy vest and Christopher Kane printed silk blouse.


A major trend this Fall is the poncho, as the silhouette is effortless and chic for the cold seasons. The poncho is a great way to elevate your look while still staying warm, as its over-sized shape is ideal for layering.  I would recommend pairing it with a slim leg, such as a cigarette dress pant for work or a skinny jean on the weekend for a tailored look.

Remember to always bring the glamour with every look! To book your one-on-one appointment, email me at jean.fleming@hbc.com or by phone at (416)779-2718.
