Our Take on Fall 2015 Fashion

5-minute read

There's a bit of bite in the air each morning, and it's cooling off at night. Your therapy: Fall fashion.
If you're like us, you're creating a shopping list. Our Fall 2015 Collection, styled by Ania B., is full of inspiration. From suede coats to denim-on-denim, here's a look at how to style your Poppy Barley boots, ankle boots and flats, whether it's for a work day or a weekend getaway. Poppy Barley Fall 2015 Collection: Fall fashion breakdown and The Chain Boot in Black - Fall 2015 fashion trends We know. We've heard the rumours. Flares are coming back in style. But here's proof that skinny jeans are going nowhere fast. Neatly tucked into The Chain Boot (our only new riding boot for Fall 2015), pair your favourite jeans with a warm, knit sweater. Consider the unique chain detail on the heel of this boot an effortless accessory as the draped turtleneck replaces your favourite statement necklace. This look is so pared-down sophisticated it hurts. Wear it on Thanksgiving long weekend or long autumn walks through the park, just before dinner. Poppy Barley Fall 2015 Collection: Fall fashion breakdown and the Slip-on Oxford in Cobra and Black Nubuck - Fall 2015 fashion trends Here, it's all about that hat (this one is from Pendleton). The off-the-shoulder white blouse from Stone Cold Fox adds a boho (or Hispanic, even) touch to simple, black, cropped cigarette pants with lace-up cuffs--a trend that's holding strong this season. Ania finished this look with Poppy Barley's Slip-on Oxford in Cobra (new this Fall) and Black Nubuck. In one fantasy sentence, it's kinda like Catherine Zeta Jones jumped into Zorro's closet for a day, just for fun. Poppy Barley Fall 2015 Collection: Fall fashion breakdown and La Hacienda Boot in Marsala - Fall 2015 fashion trends Boots and skirts - don't be shy! Pairing tall knee boots with bare legs is the perfect way to transition to cooler temperatures. Here, layering up denim-on-denim in contrasting hues (both from Topshop) has been given a feminine spin with a suede mini-skirt in a neutral colour. This colour palette allows La Hacienda Boot in Marsala (17 pairs left) to really pop. All together, it's got an upscale, rustic feel--exactly what we picture when we imagine escaping to the Rockies for a few days. Poppy Barley Fall 2015 Collection: Fall fashion breakdown and the The Classic Point in Cobra - Fall 2015 fashion trends Denim isn't going anywhere. A full blue jean-dress with long sleeves is both ladylike and tomboyish all at once. What's more--it's the fastest, easiest way to get dressed in the morning and feel effortlessly comfortable, and yet totally on point. Add a big knit scarf and this outfit is good to face any early morning chill. Here, it's paired with The Classic Point in Cobra, our most expensive leather yet (for us, not for you), and evokes images of an intricate mountain landscape with all its black onyx textures. Poppy Barley Fall 2015 Collection: Fall fashion breakdown and the The Highline in Black and Black Nubuck - Fall 2015 fashion trends Suede or nubuck, don't hold back on this texture! It's a foolproof balance between cozy and sophisticated, and this particular '70s-esque jacket from Topshop is the perfect length to wear over a dress. It's a throwback era that everyone from Jill Stuart to Rebecca Minkoff channelled on the runways. And, inspired by the nubuck shin on The Highline Boot, it's a suede-on-nubuck pairing that works. Look for a jacket that has a belt that will help accentuate the waist. Please note: mixing neutrals is a-ok. Poppy Barley Fall 2015 Collection: Fall fashion breakdown and The Lace-up Ankle Bootie in Black and Cobra - Fall 2015 fashion trends There were a few pieces we saw our Fall 2015 Collection muses, Marilyn Monroe and Francoise Hardy, wear in a series of old photographs that we took major inspiration from. This look is a perfect fusion of the two: a black chapeau (a la Hardy), a crisp white, collared shirt (a la Monroe - pls. take note of the loose fitting crop top), and menswear-inspired pants (both!). Ultimately, it's how we want to look all day, every day. The cropped and rolled up ankle cuffs are a great way to show off our brand new Lace-up Ankle Bootie, which has two textures to it. The Foxhunt Boot - Two tone English Riding Boot - Fall 2015 fashion trends - Poppy Barley Have we convinced you to dress up your boots sans tight yet? The bare-legs-and-boots-combo can only be worn for a certain time period (like, now, before the bitter cold), so we're going to take it and run. Plus, this army green piece from Sanctuary looks comfortable enough to sleep in. Accessorized with big, cat-eye sunnies, Ania's made our colour-blocked Foxhunt Boot in Cognac and Black look so luxurious, we might just check out of work early and join her on the Banff bridge. Poppy Barley Fall 2015 Collection: Fall fashion breakdown and The Chelsea Boot in Ruby Red - fall 2015 fashion trends Calling your inner rock star! This look is unapologetically edgy and bold. Pair a suede moto jacket (this one is by Veda and from Nordstrom) with leather (or Faux leather) lace-up pants and our Ruby Red Chelsea Boots (back by popular demand for another season). It's a (suede) leather on leather on leather look that we can't argue with. P.S. Don't be afraid to show a little skin at the ankle when you wear The Chelsea Boot. You can wear them with pretty much anything.

Belt Measuring Guide

Belt Measuring Guide

A - High-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt around your natural waistline, wrap a measuring tape around the narrowest part of your midsection. Then, add 3” to determine your high-rise belt size.

B - Mid-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt lower than your natural waistline, you will require a dierent size. If you have a particular pair of bottoms you intend to wear your belt with, wrap a measuring tape through the belt loops while in a relaxed position.

When wearing your belt in your preferred style, it should fasten in the middle hole. The belt will relax with wear allowing you to cinch it tighter, as needed.

If you plan to wear the belt in both the high and mid-rise styles, you have two options:

  1. Select your high-rise style and fasten it more loosely when worn in the mid-rise style.
  2. Select your mid-rise style and fasten it more tightly when worn in the high-rise style.
