Vancouver Fashion Jobs – Summer Acccessories

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

Summer time is the one season you are truly able to express your individual style without having to cover up with layers upon layers of winter garb (since Canada really only has two seasons). Whether your style is bohemian, glam or vintage, we all share one common ground, accessories. There is no better way to express your true style than with a few fun pieces and this summer, we have plenty to choose from. One fashion crime that many people commit –I’ll admit I’ve done it too- is adding way too many accessories to your outfit. People shouldn’t hear you coming from a mile away, so remember what your mother always told you, and always take two pieces off before leaving the door. Adding a simple statement necklace or a headpiece to your outfit could defiantly take your look from ordinary to extraordinary without all the extra baggage. So this summer, have fun with your look by mixing and matching some of the season’s hottest trends in jewelry.

1. Forever 21 Colour blocked pyramid bracelet $6.80
2. Forever 21 Cut out filigree cuff $5.80
3. H&M Hair decoration $6.95
4. Urban Outfitters Sunrise geo necklace $18
5. H&M Necklace $14.95
6. Sweet Harriet Golden bowtie necklace $31.39

Toronto Fashion Jobs – Lucite

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013

Lucite, a clear plastic material, has been seen walking its way up into even the top designers runway shows, ranking it one of the biggest trends for 2013. From clutches and platforms, to bangles and belts, lucite is being used on and throughout just about every accent piece you could think of! It’s minimalistic and elegant, contributing a sense of glamour and class to even the most understated look. The transparency is enduring, without baring it all. If you’re not comfortable flaunting a solely lucite piece, exposing more than a glimpse of your rather personal side, opt for pieces with more subdued see-through shapes or accents. The classic black pump with a lucite heel is the perfect combination of femininity and edge, or a lucite boot worn with frilled ankle socks would be sassy and sweet. Regardless of whether you venture out of your comfort zone or not, this trend brings the freshness of spring offering a versatile lightness.

Toronto Fashion Jobs – Under the Sea Style

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

 

Prepare yourself for a little deep sea diving into Spring’s most aquatic influence: the ocean. As seen on the ready-to-wear runways of Versace, Alexander McQueen and most notably, Chanel for Karl Lagerfeld’s reconstruction of the ocean floor, under the sea style is sure to make a splash this season.

Found 20 legions under the sea, this trend gives a nod to the mermaid siren, using iridescent sequins and fabrics to recreate the glimmer of the sea, adding a touch of sparkle and shine to your outfit. Incorporate Spring style by using aquatic touches like coral and aqua tones, oceanic embellishments and detailing like starfish, seahorses and shell accessories to create your own ocean chic.

Keep in mind, sea Goddesses, to use pieces sparingly. You don’t want to end up looking costume-y by adding too many “on trend” elements. Choose a key piece – sequin, iridescence or sea print – and build from there. Now what are you waiting for? Dive in and take the plunge!
