TIFF 2022 street style: 13 chic fall looks

The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) came and went with a bang this year with dozens of premiers, red carpet events and star-studded parties. This globally-recognized festival is obviously known for its wide selection of award-winning films, but also its fashion.

While celebrity red carpet looks often garner the most attention, we opted to catch up with local creatives who ask for both fashionability and functionality from their footwear. From photographers and creative directors to stylists and writers, here’s a close-up look at 13 fall street-style looks that serve both comfort and style.

Scroll below for our full fashion roundup and for some styling inspiration for the new fall sneakers from SOREL.

“I’m always on the move so I try to put together adaptable outfits that can get me from high-pressure photoshoots all the way through to after-work drinks with friends. My style often changes depending on what city I happen to be working in that week, so having versatility in each element is important. I love collecting unique accessories and footwear that I can rely on to dress my style up or down depending on where I’m heading to next.”

“My style is always evolving. I’m still figuring out what I like because there’s definitely a lot, but what I know for sure is I gravitate towards sporty functional pieces. Sometimes vintage, sometimes new.”

"As someone who never seems to relax, it’s important that I don’t sacrifice comfort for style and find the balance in the two instead. Especially when it comes to footwear!"

“I’m energized by bright colours and bold prints, and usually gravitate towards voluminous shapes like A-line skirts and wide leg pants. Whatever I’m wearing I want to be able to move freely (think: run to catch the subway), so sneakers and flat boots are always in heavy rotation.”

“Functionality and comfort (but never compromising on style!) always take priority, especially if we’re working. We tend to lean towards timeless pieces, interesting cuts, and fun colours (when we aren’t shooting!).”

“I basically live in my Pyer Moss sweatshirt and since it’s always freezing in TIFF screenings, throwing it on over a dress is my day-to-day uniform. My street style is comfort + versatility (especially when it comes to my shoes) + a side of trying (and failing) to look like Tessa Thompson, always.”
