Slide show: Leggings, tunics, checks and more on the runway

The legion ladies' night dinner and fashion show demonstrated that fashion can be easy going and stylish for all ages and sizes.



Relaxed, easy going, comfortable and highly stylish describes fashions on the runway at the Legion Branch 139 Ladies Night Tuesday evening.

Tunic length blouses and vests topping slim leggings stole the show in all sorts of configurations.

Checks are coming on strong this fall from big bold blocks to classic houndstooth.

Bold patterns in coats and sweaters captured eyes along with the new trends in cape styling.

And finally after years of brown, navy, beige and other colours taking credit for being the “new black” must haves, true black is coming back into its own with dynamic new flare. But there still lots of colour and shimmer out there to brighten up a wardrobe.

The little black dress and tops take on new dimension with touches of lace and asymmetrical cuts and flares, sweaters a little longer in back than in front, and other fine detailing.

The best part is that many of the pieces shown could easily go from work to a social evening out.

Suzanne’s and Jenny’s and BFF Fashions provided the show and were happy to do so for the legion fundraiser.
