September 1st is right around the corner, a chill is in the morning air and the tree leaves #onRobson have started to change from green to yellow… The fall season is upon us! You know what that means, don’t you? Chunky knit sweaters, layered outfits and hot coffees and teas as you stroll down Robson. We’re not gonna lie but we’re kind of excited for it!
The stores #onRobson have began to showcase all of their pre-fall and fall 1 styles. Window displays dawn mannequins cloaked in deep hue pea-coats and black velvet booties. Velvet is totally in for fall, did you know?
We wanted to get the scoop on the best places to shop for your fall wardrobe so we went to the sources we know are sure to have the right tips – our beloved Vancouver fashion Instagrammers! Cedar Atkins of The Edge of Lovely and Liam Hall of his self titled blog have been taking us on a tour in the past week through their Instagram accounts and today we’re rounding it up on the blog.
Cedar Atkins, @TheEdgeOfLovely
Zara – A first stop on many shopping trips, of course. This fast fashion destination is showcasing items like crushed velvet, embroidered skirts, faux-leather jackets and their must-have coats. Zara is the perfect store to gather some basic layered pieces to add to your fall wardrobe.
Club Monaco – A current haven of black and white styles with thicker fabrics to keep you cozy and on always on trend. The floral print is going strong into their pre-fall women’s collection to help you transition from summer.
Aritzia – It was no surprise that Cedar left with a few items from Vancouver based retailer, Artizia! With new items brought for fall, you’ll find your favorites from last year brought back for a refresh. Did you know that Artizia sells vegan leather?

Zara – “A man must always have a classic grey coat in his wardrobe.” – Robson Street. Okay, so we quoted ourselves, but how could you not have a coat like in your wardrobe?
Boys Co – Robson’s Street’s number one retailer for Hershel Supply Co! You can find all of your back to school or work styles on their infamous and highly photogenic backpack wall.
Aldo – These brown suede boots were definitely made for walking (shopping.) Aldo has recently stocked their men’s department with all new styles of the must have fall boots and shoes. We can’t wait to see what these look like with Liam’s outfits!
A big thank you to Liam and Cedar for their favorite shop stops but we wouldn’t leave you without adding in a few of our own. For more women’s fall fashion be sure to stop by Couturist for brands such as Fifth Label and independent jewelry designers. J.Crew, Banana Repbulic, Plenty, The Gap and Steve Madden will have exactly what you need for your classic weekend and work wear, in warmer fabrics for men and women. And lastly, for the vintage lovers, Used House Of Vintage on the top level at Burrard and Robson are stocked with your must have items waiting to be re-owned.
