The warmer days in Toronto are numbered as the season of lots of layers and pumpkin spice lattes are nearly approaching. This autumn the rustic terracotta hues is something we’ll see a lot more of in many fall and winter collections and I’m excited to incorporate more of this colour into my wardrobe.

But before we throw on the thicker layers, I like to transition into fall with a cardigan. I love a classic cardigan, it’s easy to throw on and with different patterns and twists it can easily spruce up your outfit. Ricki’s has an amazing assortment of classic basic pieces that can easily be versatile from day to night wear.

Here’s 2 ways I wore my cardigan for different occasions.



My main piece in these looks is the Shawl Collar Cover-Up. While being functional and comfy to wear, it’s trendy and can easily become a versatile piece in your closet.

Here I paired this colourful cardigan with a basic v-neck tee and a black floral pattered  a-lined skirt. Layering the collared shawl over this outfit makes it sophisticated and chic for any of your #GirlBoss excursions.



I like to grab a coffee with friends after work in the city but l often like to dress for the occasion too. Here I threw on a grey basic tee with some knitted high waisted shorts to create a more casual look. To add a feminine touch to this look up, I added the same terracotta cardigan on top and overall it transformed my outfit!

Transforming your outfits from day to night simply begin with quality basic pieces. What are your favourite basic clothing pieces? Let me know in the comment box below.

    • I bought the shorts at Top Shop last summer around this time of year and my basic tee from Aritzia! This is a good time to get these types of items before the fall officially hits 🙂
