The Toronto International Film Festival is here!! From pre-screening dinners to red carpet celebrity spotting and after film cocktails, we love it all! While it sounds like fun (and it really is!) we are also are staring at our closets wondering what to wear?! There’s only so many times a LBD will help us through. We were inspired by a few suggestions from the Hudson’s Bay, an official Fashion Retailer and Red Carpet Sponsor of TIFF, when we started pulling together some of our favourite pieces to get through this Festival season. Here’s our top 5 …

Faux Leather Leggings:  The perfect transition piece can easily be dressed down when out celeb spotting in the day and dress up when hitting the latest premiere at night. Check out En Thread ($79)

Print Wrap Maxi Dress: ($545) Stand out in the crowd with prints. The form and fit of this dress will help keep you moving all day and night pair easily with ankle boots, tall boots or strappy shoes. We LOVE this ba&sh Selena Zebra Print ($545) It will be a go-to right through to the holiday season.

Blazer: TIFF is a real grind running from the office to the  theatre. A good blazer will take you everywhere and beyond. Look for interesting details like this Rachel Roy Darby Blazer ($239) that offers a little more than the usual. Simple pairing with a skinny jeans and a white tee…or over that LBD.

Cashmere lightweight scarf: This time of year can be warm during the days but chilly in the evenings. Keep warm and cozy lightweight cashmere scarf handy for in and out of the theatres. This Portalano scarf ($139.9) comes in several colours but the softeness of the pink transitions easily from day to night.

Earth & Rich Coloured Handbag: The easiest way to freshen up your overall look for the fall. Earth colours in tans or a deep cognac will become your go-to. We found this Rebecca Minkoff Megan Feed Bag ($428) to be the ideal size.
