Montreal weather has been all over the place. In the weeks that I’ve been back, I’ve experienced chilly weather in August and near-tropical heat in the middle of September. All this makes dressing a hellish nightmare. Nevertheless, I’ve found some amazing picks from Montreal’s own Le Chateau that are perfect for late September, when the weather finally decided to let up and allow us all to start layering for fall.
The first piece I got was this gorgeous menswear inspired blazer. It’s so perfectly baggy and drapey and can transform instantly from day to night with a quick switch to a mini skirt underneath (a sort of mock blazer dress). If you’re feeling particularly courageous, wear your favourite lacey bralette underneath. I’ll leave that there.

I also love these baggy pants that blend together a cargo-pant concept with oxford pant cleanliness. It’s a crepe-like fabric, similar to what you’d find in some oxford pants/dress pants, but the look is a little baggier and more casual. While it’s difficult to discern through these grain-filled photos (I’m sorry, I’m a sucker for VSCO), there are multiple pockets on each side of the pants that have a satiny sheen. It’s such a perfect contrast, and makes the baggy look stand out a little more. Not that one can have too many pockets, either.
