Teachers. You make the world go round. We appreciate you, not only for the education, but for your dedication to our little ones and your lasting contributions to all of our lives. If there’s anyone we should be extra grateful for—especially since early 2020—it’s our amazing community of educators all across Canada. That’s why, for World Teachers’ Day 2021, we’re having an exclusive teachers-only contest to win a $500 Laura gift card*. On October 19, one lucky winner will be chosen to receive an A+ fall wardrobe, completely on us.

Now, let’s give you another reason to get dressed and get you up to speed on the latest colour trends to help you build that flawless fall wardrobe. Class-approved for teachers, and fashion-approved for everyone else.


1. Red, Grey and Black

This timeless colour trio is extra sophistication brought to life: go-to neutrals like grey and black paired with a rush of sultry red to keep things exciting. Would you feel your best in a plaid skirt suit or a sweater and poncho? Choose the outfit that makes you feel the most YOU. We love both equally!

2. Orange, Beige and Brown

Did someone say in-season colours? Because are they ever! Orange, beige and brown with some off-white and yellow hues in the mix: warm earthy tones to make you feel at home (even when you’re not!). Go for a wrap for added coziness or a printed tunic for an original edge.

3. Magenta or Red and Blue

Take it from us, you can never go wrong with a blue jean. Because denim is a classic that’s oh so in right now, read our guide on fall’s best denim to find the perfect fit for you. Then, take your look and make it vibrant with a magenta or red accent. Layer up in a faux suede jacket or slip into a long soft turtleneck sweater. Guaranteed weather-appropriate style either way.

4. Black and White

It’s black and white forever, of course. Still, there’s plenty of room to get creative with this everlasting duo, making it feel fresh and new. Just to give you a couple of ideas, you can try out a statement motif like houndstooth or don a unique fooler top that clearly understands what contrast is all about.
