Fashion Jobs Vancouver – Best ‘Brellas

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

best brellas

 

Pity the fool who uses a hood to keep the rain away. With April showers well underway, us fashionistas needn’t settle for such measures to preserve our hairstyles from nature’s whims. A stylish umbrella is a great way to bring yourself a smile on a rainy day – not to mention it’s a great upgrade from that $3 one in the bottom of your bag that flops in the wind anyway!

 

Bubble styles are my personal favourite because they are oh-so-mod. Anything that makes me look more like Twiggy or Edie Sedgwick is a win in my books! They’re practical too, since they curve downwards instead of out and they are less likely to get turned inside-out by gale force winds. The one I have my eye on currently is Felix Ray’s cityscape print version. It’s just the right amount of whimsy!

 

If you want a smaller, throw-it-in-your bag option, try a collapsible style in a quirky print. It’ll be a real style statement in a sea of black ‘brollies, for sure. (And you are the type to stand out in a crowd anyways, aren’t you, darling?)

 

Maybe you’re more into minimalism and structure. If that’s the case, an umbrella with a cool, sculptural shape is a perfect fit. Look for ones with an almost parasol shape, like this cool one by Lauren Conrad. Wear it with attitude, fearless fashionista!

 

For those with a classic aesthetic: How do you have some fun with your rainy-day wear without going overboard? Why not try an umbrella with either a super-subtle print or one that has a print on the inside? Talk about it all being in the details, am I right?

 

Either way, we’ll be armed and ready for whatever the forecast throws at us! Oh, and remember: you’re never too old to puddle-jump.

Fashion Jobs Calgary – Wes Anderson Style

Monday, April 21st, 2014

After recently seeing the fantastic new movie The Grand Budapest Hotel by one of my favourite directors Wes Anderson, I started thinking of some of his older films and of the best fashion moments that were featured in them. It got me thinking that there must be ways to be inspired by these characters when getting dressed without looking as though you’re dressing as them for Halloween. Here are some of my favourite characters with a fresh take on each of their iconic looks.

Fashion Jobs Vancouver – Fringe Benefits

Fringe 4Fringe 3

Fringe 5Fringe 6

This spring, evoke your inner Bohemian babe by rocking some fringe in your outfits.

Fringe has gone in and out of style over the decades, however, now it is back in a big way. The addition of fringe into your everyday wear is a great opportunity to add a bit of personality to your spring wardrobe. The best feature about this look is that you can add as much or as little fringe as you want to your outfit. You can keep it simple by wearing it in a purse or other accessory, or, you can go all out and wear it in a dress. If you choose to wear a lot of fringe, it may be best to keep the rest of your look neutral, just to ensure you are keeping fringe as the focus.

Fringe is a great way to add a pop of interest to your wardrobe, and since there are many different ways to wear it, everyone will be able to find a piece that suits their personal style.

1. Free People FP ONE Eastern Fringe Bralette, $63.84

2. H&M Leather Bucket Bag, $149.00

3. Forever 21 Edgy Fringed Tunic, $21.80

4. Anthropologie Flecose Fringe Flats, $236.00

5. Denim  & Supply Ralph Lauren Patterned Poncho, $75.00, available at Hudson’s Bay

Fashion Jobs – Button Ups

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

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

3. J. Crew Silk Dash-Dot Blouse, US $138

4. Aerie Silky Button Down Shirt, $32

5. Burberry London Lace Blouse, $753 available at Stylebop

6. Diane Von Furstenberg Esmely Blouse, US $311, available at Farfetch

7. Zara Long Colourblock Shirt, $59

8. Babaton Darien Blouse, $125, available at Aritzia 

9. Mango Bow Textured Chiffon Blouse, $59

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

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

3. Anthropologie Prep-Dot Oxfords, $58

4. Coincidence & Chance Polka Dot Mesh Dress, $79, available at Urban Outfitters

Fashion Jobs Toronto – Blurred Lines

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

6. Asos Goldie 2 in 1 Bodycon Dress with Zip Back
