Fashion Jobs – How to Dress Like a Perfectly Curated Instagram Page

January 13th, 2016
We all see those flawless Instagram pages throughout social media. Neutral palette, minimalistic chic, so simple yet catches your eye in amazement. You find yourself in admiration over how elegant and put together they appear. They’re clean, chic and beautiful, so who wouldn’t desire to dress that look?   Yes, floral and colours are great for your wardrobe, but this is all about the monochromatic neutral minimalistic approach. Think Victoria Beckham. She is known for her c Read More...

Fashion Jobs – Winter Pink at the Office

January 13th, 2016
Maybe it’s the subzero temperatures or the lack of adequate sunlight, but winter always seems to draw us to the ‘dark side’ when it comes to our sartorial colour choices. Black, charcoal, navy, oxblood and camel—colours that are winter wardrobe staples for many women (myself included). This season designers decided not to cast a dark shadow over the runway; instead it was illuminated with shades of pink like fuchsia, punch, and rose. Once I saw the powdery pastels in Prada’s fall Read More...

Fashion Jobs – Office Loafers

January 12th, 2016
Wearing loafers to the office is now possible thanks to the new and stylish trends coming out. They are a great alternative to wearing heels once in a while.  Lately, I have been pairing black patent loafers with slim trousers and a crisp blouse. The loafers automatically elevate the look and instantly make me feel more stylish. I have rounded up some of my other favorite loafers that are office appropriate.   1. Steve Madden Meela, $79 2. Zara Contrast Leather Loafers, $8 Read More...

Fashion Jobs – 5 Ways to Reinvent the Turtleneck

January 6th, 2016
A few days ago, I was doing some post-holiday shopping with a friend (lets call her Stacy), and I came across the most exquisite oversized knit turtleneck. As I rummaged through the pile of sweaters searching for my perfect fit, Stacy began to recite why she hates turtlenecks: “they make you look like a dowdy middle school teacher, they’re so clingy that they show all of my rolls, I get that ‘uniboob’ thing,” and “turtlenecks are just so boring.” After a few eye-rolls and heads Read More...

Fashion Jobs – Dress Pants On The Run

January 6th, 2016
Comfort at the office? What more could a girl ask for. Looking fashion forward at the office and being comfortable while doing so is the ultimate win-win situation in the SNTF fashion guide.   The jogger pant trend made a huge statement in the fashion scene in 2015, and with some upgrades from last year, it is now made accessible for all of those #girlbosses out there who are looking for some new 2016 additions in their closet. These pants have comfort and versatility, making the Read More...

Fashion Jobs – Leather or Not

January 5th, 2016
Let’s face it; sometimes leather just doesn’t work for the office. Sure, you look amazing in your leather leggings and want to wear them all day and everyday – but some things should be saved for a Friday girl’s night out, agreed? Also, some of us love the look of leather but choose not wear it to support ethical animal practices. Luckily, I’ve window-shopped some leather and faux leather dresses that are work and weekend appropriate. 1. FulChic: Black Pleated High PU Read More...

Fashion Jobs – Hang Loose

January 4th, 2016
One of this season’s biggest trends is loose fitting slacks.  If styled right these pants can really look chic for the office. However, if not styled correctly, these pants run the risk of looking sloppy. So how do you choose which pants from this style are right for the office? It is important to select a pair that are well tailored and have either a light pattern or a solid colour. Here are a few of our favorites to choose from this season.   1. H&M Wide-Cut Pants Read More...

Fashion Jobs – 5 Ways to Get a Fashion Job

January 4th, 2016
  Take these 5 actions and you will most likely get that fashion job.   1. Have a professional and attractive social presence; most importantly Instagram and LinkedIn. The first thing I do when a candidate applies at Style Nine to Five is look them up on Instagram (remove those party pics) and LinkedIn (is this up-to-date?). Your profile photos on each of these accounts should be different. For example, your LinkedIn profile will be more professional, while Instagram m Read More...

December 29th, 2015
Can you believe that 2016 is right around the corner? Although the holiday season coming to an end is always bittersweet, there are so many things to look forward to when a new year arrives. For 2016, I am specifically going to be focusing on my career goals. One way to impress any employer is by your attitude and appearance. Personally, I know that I do my best work when I feel comfortable and confident in what I’m wearing and how I present myself. I’ve listed my Top 5 wardrobe essentia Read More...

Fashion Jobs – Twinkle Toes

December 28th, 2015
As a child, I was quite fond of anything that glittered. I absolutely loved my glitter markers, glitter glue, glitter lip glosses, glitter barrettes, glitter ballet flats, glitter denim—okay, maybe I had a slight glitter obsession back then. As I grew into a young adult, objects that sparkled or even had a hint of glimmer became increasingly less enchanting, for they held a juvenile quality that ran counter to the sophisticated style I was trying to develop.   Recently Ann Winto Read More...
