Autumn is here and for many that means it’s time to get back to work or school, so why not start fresh and revamp your fall wardrobe? 

Para Mix – a women’s clothing boutique located in the heart of the Osborne Village – is known for its eclectic clothing and unique styles, with many one of a kind pieces. This fall, Winnipeg fashion is all about mixing comfort and style. 

“Comfy sweaters and harem pants and a lot crop tops too,” Para Mix’s Jesse Vestner, 23, says of the top choices at the store this fall.  

“Everything is super comfortable, not as many restricting clothes.”

Vestner says the relaxed attire is a welcome change from the more restraining clothing that was all the rage recently. She says her two favourite fashions this fall are: 

“The harem pants – feels like pajama pants all day – and the giant sweaters.” 

Vestner says when it comes to stylish new duds, Winnipeg women aren’t, well, duds. 

“I’ve been told while traveling that Winnipeg has the most fashionable girls,” Vestner says. “Any time I travel in Canada, that’s what people tell me.”
