Pumpkin spice, blanket scarves, and cozy sweaters – all perfect epitomes of fall. While the weather’s getting chillier and coffee shops already have eggnog lattes on their menus, we can still hold onto fall for another month and a half. We’ve been lucky enough to have several pretty warm days this fall, and hopefully it stays this way for the next little while.
While we slowly (and dreadfully) transition into colder weather, you might as well get some transitional season shopping done. NEON Clothing is a Montreal-based clothing company that just opened their first location in Toronto, and it’s pretty darn cool.
Their store is humongous, and it sells everything from clothes to backpacks to furniture. The coolest thing about NEON is that they’re all about finding the newest and coolest brands that you haven’t even heard of yet – they scout the streets of LA and NYC, Europe, and Asia, to see what the latest buzz is. They’ve also got the essentials like Levi’s, Adidas, Obey, Vans, Jansport, Dr. Martens, and Converse. You can literally buy an entire shelf, because the furniture the clothes sit on is even for sale.
Still looking for that perfect bomber? They’ve got a good selection of the well-known Alpha Industries bomber jackets. They’ve also got a huge selection of winter outerwear in case you’re gearing up for winter.
They’ve also got one of the widest collections of Levi’s denim outside of Levi’s stores in Toronto.
Although they’re Montreal-based, they’ve done their research on Torontonians.
I’ve put together three simple looks for those warm fall days, thanks to NEON.
Look #1: Obey
Denim: One Teaspoon
Shoes: Michael Kors
Hat: American Apparel
Look #2: Stripes

NEON’s been around for over 30 years and they’ve got 6 locations, so they know all about the latest and greatest in streetwear. For more information, check out their website (coming soon) or their store at 501 Queen Street West.
