When the leaves start changing colour, the air gets crisp and the days get shorter, it’s time to start thinking about fall fashion. Bring on the warm, comfy sweaters, flowing scarves, denim, and jackets and boots in neutral fall tones. Shopping for fall or back-to-school wear has never been easier with the amazing selection in Regina and Saskatoon. Whether you’re in the market for something new, something vintage, something second-hand, or something totally unique, both cities have you covered!
Consignment: Don’t shy away from shopping second-hand! It’s a great chance to find something nobody else has, and save money, too. Regina’s Hanger & Rack Curated Consignment is the place to look in YQR for a collection of second-hand pieces that are stylish and hand-selected. In Saskatoon, check out Underground Trends, where you’ll find a variety of options for clothing, shoes, bags, accessories, jackets, plus sizes and even a men’s section.
Workwear: For work clothing you’ll love and feel comfortable in, check out The Sandbox in the City in Saskatoon, where you’ll find stunning pieces that will up your wardrobe this season, with everything from stand-out jackets to beautiful dresses. In Regina, check out Queen V Fashion House downtown for a great selection of dresses in all types — long, short, fitted, flowy and plus sizes, too.
Classy: Check out Two Fifty Two Boutique for classy and upscale pieces that are made to last. With a location in both Regina and Saskatoon, this Saskatchewan boutique carries unique brands from all over the world and offers a complimentary basic hemming alteration per each regular priced item to ensure your pieces fit perfectly to your body.
Locally made: Alchemy Collective’s Clothing Boutique in Saskatoon features clothing that is made by owner and in-house designer Melissa Squire and also features clothing, jewellery, accessories and handbags from other local Saskatchewan designers. In Regina, look for local clothing line Amaranth Designs, which features pieces that are simple, elegant and beautiful. You might just find that perfect fall dress or a new piece for work! You can find Amaranth Designs online, at Havik and at Crocus & Ivy (both of these YQR places are worthy of a stop, anyway!)
Vintage: Regina’s T&A Vinyl and Fashion is your one-stop-shop for local vintage finds, in both men’s and women’s varieties. You might even find some vinyl or vintage decor pieces to spice up your fall home look too! In Saskatoon, check out Better Off Duds for vintage collectibles and men and women’s clothing. Their one-of-a-kind pieces and variety of styles mean you’re sure to find something that will help you stand out in a crowd.
