One of the most worn colours both on the runways and on the streets during Fashion Week (or month, really) was a warm taupe that style experts have been referring to as stone.

Here are three ways to wear stone head-to-toe this spring, and one way for going out – with a pop of colour!

If you’re reluctant to try this trend, now is the time to let go of your hesitation. The loose, baggy fit can be plenty flattering if you wear it with the right pieces. Cuff them and pair with booties or keep it casual with a fitted t-shirt. Boyfriend jeans get that worn-in look and feel with plenty of distressed details, which can range Read More...

This spring, gingham isn’t just a pattern for picnics. It’s also a cute way to add a pop of pizzazz to your existing wardrobe.

After what has been a very long, cold winter, the spring countdown is on! We all know that those spring showers bring spring flowers, but unless we’re watching from inside we have to stay warm and dry. It’s never fun to be caught outside when the rain starts, so it is best to be prepared with waterproof jackets and accessories like the ones I’ve picked here.
