Fashion Jobs – Button Ups

button up blouses

Like a trench coat or a pencil skirt a button up blouse is an absolute must have for any wardrobe. It instantly polishes any look and is one of the most versatile pieces you can own; it transitions seamlessly from day to evening and weekday to weekend, and works equally with a skirt or pants. A classic, crisp, collared white shirt is definitely the one to own but there are so many options out there from printed to bright coloured, silky to utility, cropped or sleeveless and don’t forget, a little detail (like the bow tie or lace one below) always adds a bit of flair. Just be careful with the fit, button ups can be tricky and can pull across the chest, so make sure they comfortably do up and aren’t showing a little too much. I’ve picked a few that stick with the traditional shape but with a few modern twists, think Joan from Mad Men in the Mango pick, or a professional twist on the popular plaid with the Babaton.

1. Joe Fresh Oxford Shirt, $29

2. Equipment Button Down Shirt, US $400, available at Farfetch

Writing posts about how to wear colour is one of my favourite topics since it is a personal challenge of mine. I like to believe that denim is a colour, and that neutrals are the best investment, but it’s hard to deny the power a bold hue gives to an outfit. Here are four looks that even a colourphobe like myself would be enticed to try.

There are many different new styles of shoes that can be worn for spring; however, none are as casual, comfortable and versatile as the updated boat shoe.

Boat shoes were traditionally worn as an informal slip-on shoe that people wore on boats and yachts. This spring, you don’t need to be sailing on the seas in order to wear them. This shoe comes in many different colours, and with distinct details like twine, it will be like nothing else you have already owned. You can easily wear these kicks with jeans or a cute summer dress. Their ability to be paired with numerous outfits will ensure that these shoes can be worn all season long.

One of the best features of the shoe is the fact that it is a slip-on. Since it is as easy to wear as a cute maxi dress, it will be your go-to shoe.

 

1. ALDO Archi, $65.00

2. Sperry Top-Sider, $100.00, available at Browns Shoes

3. Urban Outfitters Victoria Elastic Slip-on Sneaker, $60.00

4. Forever 21 Favorite Striped Slip-Ons, $12.00

5. Call it Spring Afoallan, $40.00

6. ALDO Teade, $60.00

Fashion Jobs – Spring Trench Coat

Monday, April 14th, 2014

ST95-ADS

It’s finally here! This winter was so long and cold that it felt like this day would never come: trench coat season. Trench coats are a classic that continue to stand the test of time. They help finish off any outfit and will literally go with everything, which is my favourite part. Whether you like bold prints and colours or prefer a neutral style, there is a trench coat out there for you. I’m here to show you just how versatile the trench can be, so below are a few different outfits I have put together for you.

1

A neutral trench coat is always a great option because you can wear it for years and it will never go out of style. If you’re looking for the right coat to wear to work, a neutral colour is the best route to go. Not only will it go with everything in your closet, but it also keeps you looking polished and professional at all times.

1. Net-A-Porter Burberry London Trench Coat, $1,295

2. Rebecca Taylor Long Sleeve Blouse, $225

3. Zappos Alexander McQueen Pointy Pump in Orange, $820

4. Net-A-Porter J.Crew Collection Printed Santung Straight-Leg Pants, $300

2

Whether you’re going for a night out with friends or date night, the trench looks fabulous with a dress. This is the perfect time to have some fun and experiment with bold colours, so your jacket will stand out in any party. Add your favourite dress and a killer pair of heels and you’re good to go.

1. Ted Baker Meeliye Panelled Trench Coat, $448

2. Marissa Collections Black Halo Jackie O Dress, $375

3. My Theresa Victoria Beckham Quincy Leather Tote, $1,275

4. Zara Pointy Shoes with Ankle Strap, $59

3

Trench coats don’t have to be for workwear or special occasions; they’re a great way to finish off any casual outfit too. Even if you’re running errands or walking the dog, a trench looks awesome paired with your go-to jeans. Because it is such a structured jacket, you can actually opt for less-structured bottoms while still looking put-together. Boyfriend jeans are huge this season and a great option, which I have paired here with a gorgeous red jacket.

1. Coach Classic Long Trench, $498

2. Lord and Taylor Steve Madden Cori Leather Side-Cutout Oxfords, $79

3. J.Crew Saint James for J.Crew Slouchy Tee, $108

4. Nordstrom Moto ‘Hayden’ Patchwork Boyfriend Jeans, $96

Flirty and fun, few things are as quintessentially feminine as polka dots. This spotted print may be retro, but it’s long outgrown its Minnie Mouse ears, re-inventing itself season after season to keep it fresh. If you’re just testing the polka dot waters, you can never go wrong with the classics, so a simple black and white colour palette or an easy accessory like a purse is a great start. If you want to be more adventurous, try the print in a modern trend like these silk pants or preppy oxfords. And, don’t forget, there’s always the teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini.

1. 3.1 Phillip Lim Polka Dot Blouse, US $517.77, available at Farfetch

2. Max Mara ‘Aligi’ Polka Dot Silk Pants, $644.33 available at Nordstrom

Black and white are two traditional, neutral colours that can be worn with anything. However, when pairing those shades in a striped pattern, your look will get elevated to a whole other level.

Prints are a great way to add interest to your outfits, and they are an easy addition to any wardrobe. Unfortunately, some prints can be distracting, and since they are so busy, a lot of people feel uncomfortable wearing them. Black and white stripes are the perfect mix between a print and a solid, and they can be worn during the day or evening. If you want to be daring, you can opt for a full striped onesie, or to play it more demurely, you can rock a simple a-line skirt. No matter how you choose to wear this look, you will love its versatility and its ability to be worn for any occasion.

1. Urban Outfitters Colorfast Criscross Off-The-Shoulder Top, $34.00

2. H&M Striped Skirt, $34.95

3. Topshop Stripe Tunic, $52.00, available at The Bay

4. Free People Jailbreaker Romper, $101.27

5. Forever 21 Striped Wide-Leg Pants, $14.99

3. Bloomingdales Sandro Top, $399

Mesh is a big trend this Spring/Summer and I’m here to help you pull it off flawlessly. At first it can seem a little difficult to incorporate into your wardrobe, but it’s easier than you think. Perfect for the warm weather and hot summer days, breezy mesh fabrics will keep you feeling nice and cool all season long.

Cropped Mesh Tops

1. STYLEBOP 3.1 Phillip Lim Cotton Mesh Jacquard Top, $895

2. FarFetch T by Alexander Wang, $565

 

Another massive trend this season is the beloved cropped top. I’ve found a couple of awesome pieces that really tie the two trends together in a classy way. For a subtle look, pair with a neutral bra or tank underneath. Feeling daring? Opt for a neon piece under your mesh top to keep things interesting.

Mesh Tops

 

1. FarFetch Forte Forte Mesh Tank Top, $369

2. STYLEBOP ZADIG & VOLTAIRE, $501

 

There are plenty of other options for a mesh shirt if you aren’t ready for the midriff-baring cropped top. These options look great paired with your favourite pair of jeans and sandals for the warm weather. Add a pop of colour with a pastel bag to give a light and fresh feel to your outfit.

4

Mesh Bottoms

 

If you are looking to explore this trend but feel like the mesh tops aren’t for you, mesh bottoms are an awesome alternative. Many brands are now offering maxi skirts with a mesh overlay, much like the one shown here, which I absolutely love. Adding a little mesh to your bottoms will really help you put a trendy twist on the average warm weather outfit.

1. STYLEBOP Rag & Bone Mesh Leather Shorts, $721

2. Urban Outfitters Shilla Surface Net-Overlay Maxi Skirt, $75

3. MatchesFashion Elizabeth and James Heyden Mesh-Overlay Skirt, $320

Fashion Jobs Vancouver – Casual Meets Refined: Denim Pencil Skirts

When I think of denim skirts, my memory always takes me right back to the seventh grade when I wore my knee length denim skirt from Old Navy with everything and felt so “ladylike” when I wore it. Now, it has been proven that denim skirts are making a serious comeback! Especially knee grazing pencil silhouettes – whether they are classic mid-blue denim, embellished, or distressed, this is definitely a trend to re-try this spring!

There is no better way to add interest to your outfit than to wear a piece of stunning statement jewellery.

In the past, oversized necklaces have received all the standout attention. However, this spring, don’t be afraid to supersize all your accessories. Big rings, bracelets, earrings and necklaces are available to spice up your wardrobe. The best thing about this trend is that you get to choose how eccentric you want to make your look. Statement jewellery is completely versatile; you can customize your look to include pieces as big, or as small as you would like. With options that come in gold or silver and a multitude of different shapes and stones, your selections are endless.

Statement jewellery is the perfect addition to any outfit; it is just the spark of interest that will get you in the mood for spring.

Fashion Jobs – Spring Transition

Spring is finally upon us! Although we have been long awaiting warmer weather, it’s not quite skirt and dress weather yet. However, if you are like me and are tired of wearing jeans and pants to combat the chilly weather, fret not! Here are some ways to cold-proof your style while still being able to comfortably rock the skirt or dress you’ve been dying to wear!

Tights! A must have for any Canadian wardrobe. Soft and opaque tights in many colors can give you the warmth and coverage needed to shield the cold. Try lighter shades in beige or nude to play and mix around, but definitely keep a (few) black pairs to wear under your dresses and skirts.

Layering with shirts. Expertly wear a shirt under a dress for a layered look that is cozy and warm. Try this look with simple long-sleeved tees or a collared oxford with the collars peeking out underneath. Fitted shirts work best for layering, and give your dresses new life by plating with colours and prints!

Wear with pants. A shorter dress or skirt can totally be worn over pants. Maintain the balance of your outfit by choosing simple skinny pants that are ankle-length, nothing too long or flared. Pair with ballet flats for a put-together look.

High boots. Knee-length or higher (!) boots are already a winter staple, and looks chic layered under a skirt or dress. Keep the boots simple in black, and wear them underneath your skirt or dress of choice!
