If you are looking for a transferable piece of footwear, that isn’t anything like you already own, then purchasing a pair of mules is exactly what you need.

Mules are an easy to wear shoe that will look good with most of the trends for spring. They will look especially great with menswear inspired pants and fitted blazers. What makes the mule truly versatile is the fact that it can be worn in both a heel and flat style. It is entirely up to you how dressy  or causal you want to look when you wear this shoe. This fact also makes the mule a perfect addition to your work wardrobe. The mule is available in a multitude of colours and styles, and can even sport a chunky or slim heel.

Since we are hoping the worst of winter is over, it’s a great time to start thinking about updating our spring wardrobe and mules are a must-have addition for the warmer months.

 

1. ALDO Frida, $90.00

2. Jeffrey Campbell Ft. Collins Slingback Mule, $170, available at Urban Outfitters

Fashion Jobs – Ice Skating Attire

Exams have wrapped up, the holidays are officially in full swing and that means taking advantage of all the festive activities we could possibly fit into our schedule. No matter if you’re baking cookies or building snowmen, the magic of the holiday season is upon us and it’s best to greet it with our most stylish yet comfortable attire. One of my favorite holiday activities is ice skating, there is something so fun and romantic about the old winter pass time. Whether you’re wobbling your way through the rink or landing a double axel we want you to look your absolute best. Take a note from the pros and throw on a pair of leggings, the comfortable go-to pant allows you to move around freely, while still looking stylish (for extra style points, opt for a printed pair). My policy on outdoor winter activities is the more the merrier, so throw on the hat, mittens, scarf, chunky socks and any other warm up accessory before hitting the rink. It’s not every day that you can get away with wearing multiple accessories, so have fun with it, mix and match your favorite pieces to create a unique look that will have you stand out in the crowd, and not just because of your killer skate tricks.

Vancouver Fashion Jobs – Animal Friendly Fashion

If you’re looking for a way to stay warm and chic as the weather gets cooler, then faux fur will be you new go-to material of choice.
p style=”padding-top: 14px;”>
For centuries, fur has been used to ensure the human body isn’t cold. However, for ethical reasons, many people are shying away from using the real thing. Thankfully, retailers have now made high quality faux fur that looks real, and still acts as a buffer from the weather. Typically, faux fur is used in outerwear as it isn’t practical to be used as a bottom layering piece. You can wear it as an accent to a coat, as a full faux jacket, or as a vest. Any way that you choose to rock the look will be fabulous, and there are many different ways that you can make this style your own. Just remember that wearing faux fur is a statement on its own, so if you tend to shy away from ostentatious outfits, you may want to keep all other pieces neutral.

Faux fur is the perfect combination of both fashion and function, and the animals will thank you for choosing to go with a synthetic, instead of the real thing.

 

1. Forever 21 Luxe Faux Fur Vest, $35.80

2. Free People Technicolour Vegan Fur Coat, $307.96

3. H&M Fake Fur Jacket, $69.95

4. Anthropologie Downy Fur Vest, $250.00

5. Topshop Borg Biker Jacket, $78.00

6. Talula Park Slope Vest, $110.00, available at Aritzia

Typically by this time in mid-August, a couple of noticeable changes start to appear, weather wise. It’s no longer warm enough at night to go jacketless, and there’s a distinct chill in the air in the mornings. Summer is on its way out, and Fall is here to slowly take over. With that, comes a new colour palette for fashion and design; we tend towards more muted, yet rich colours like burgandys, greys and taupes, leaving the eclectic summer colours behind.

This Fall, there are a number of stand-out colours that will perfectly fit into your seasonal wardrobe. From rich emerald green, to mauve hues and rust coloured browns, this season’s palette is all about richness and depth of colour.

1. Cadence Crop Tank, $39.75, available at Nasty Gal

2. Free People We The Free Solid Peplum Top, $59.75

3. Free People Nightgale Dress, $142.12

4. Aritzia Wilfred Free Iman Dress, $165

5. Faux Leather Skirt, $69.90, available at Zara

6. Jersey H Varsity Bomber Jacket, $45, available at TOPSHOP

Sunglasses are a girl’s best friend in sunny weather, and while the classic aviator, wayfarer, or Audrey Hepburn styles are always flattering choices that complement any ensemble, sometimes you want to step outside the box. If you think it’s time to stand out with your summer accessories, try a bolder look with bright colours, off-kilter designs, and unusual lenses. After all, fortune favours the brave, even if today brave means donning some futuristic shades that are out of this world.

1. Scarlette Butterfly Shade, $145, available at NastyGal

2. Prada PR 60OS Sunglasses, $540, available at Sunglass Hut

3. ASOS Handmade Cat Eye Sunglasses with Wavy Highbrow, $26.75

5. DSquared2 Black Gold 59 Sunglasses, $149, available at ClearlyContacts

There is one trend we have seen virtually every season for decades, it is constantly reinvented and has been altered to suit annual trends. Care to guess which one I am talking about? If you guessed denim then you already know that this material has played a prominent role in the fashion world for years.  We all have a pair of jeans we can’t get rid of, and we have all worn denim in some way, shape or form. Lately, this classic material has been all over the place, we’ve seen it in the form of skinnies, cut offs, shirts and vests even during the hot summer season. So which denim trends should you take on this summer?

Montreal Fashion Jobs – The Summer Animal

Animal print is always a great piece to wear to spice things up in the Fall/Winter. The typical cheetah, leopard and zebra prints are great to add a little spunk and attitude to the wardrobe. But when it comes to summer, it’s time to put those old prints away and do a little shopping!

Summer is all about the bright, bold colours and light fabrics. Despite the myth, animal print can actually be worn in the summer! Since Miu Miu put out their Spring 2010 collection on the runway with the notorious bird prints, a new wave of wearing animal suddenly appeared in fashion. Taking a more literal approach to the word animal print, this new trend takes the actual animal and uses it as the print. It’s fun, flirty and a perfect lighter alternative to the typical animal print!

Calgary Fashion Jobs – Oriental Express

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013

1 23 4 56

For centuries, the western world has taken inspiration from the Orient. The unique and opulent fabrics, textures and prints have long been revered.

Posen, Michael Kors and Marchesa have all used this inspiration in their collections. The mixture of black, blues, and golds have all been incorporated seamlessly with ornate flower-based patterns. Also, the use of silks and flowing materials are the perfect compliment for hot summer weather. Since Oriental fashion is dramatic on its own, it is usually better to pair a piece with more neutral colors or designs. For those of you who take chances with your outfits, you can pair multiple Oriental pieces together, but do so with caution. You don’t want your gorgeous outfit to look as though you are going to a costume party. This summer, fashion has taken its inspiration from the East, and if you choose to go along with the trend, you’ll be the perfect picture of Oriental elegance.

1. Judith Leiber Kyoto Pagoda Clutch, $7365.44, available at Neiman Marcus
2. Aldo Athalia Shoe, $59.98
3.Etro Embellished Printed Silk Gown, $3840, available at Net-A-Porter
4. Zara Printed Silk Blouse, $29.99
5. TOPSHOP Spider Floral Kimono, $100, available at The Bay
6. Zara Wide Oriental Trousers, $29.99

Montreal Fashion Jobs – Osheaga Style

Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

Festivals have long been a source of fantastic fashion, often taking a modern interpretation of festival fashion from the early 60s, when Woodstock and other huge events were in their hay day. Early next month, comes Canada’s biggest music fest, Osheaga. If you haven’t heard of this festival, it’s a three day extravaganza held in the center of one of the best cities in the world – Montreal. This year’s line-up is sure to be a memorable one, a veritable who’s who of both International and Canadian music.

When packing for a festival, it’s important to take a few factors in to account. One, make sure you pack suitable rain gear – being caught in the rain isn’t much fun when you’re on the grounds for several hours. Also, make sure to pack for the other extreme – heat. Other than weather, make sure to bring a pair of comfortable shoes, and a great pair of sunglasses. Here are our festival ready picks for Osheaga 2013.

1. For Love & Lemons Arizona dress, $150
2. Novella Royale Lady jumpsuit, $165
3. Moto Bleach Denim Long Leg Dungarees, $55.00, available at TOPSHOP
4. Desert Child Crochet Top, $50.20, available at Nasty Gal
5. American Apparel Sunflower Print Denim Short, $60
