Calgary Fashion Jobs – Menswear Chic

Thursday, September 19th, 2013




Ever since it was a style that helped to start a revolution in the 1980s, a menswear aesthetic has been prominent in women’s fashion. However, gone are the days of massive shoulder pads, because the new masculine style is designed for a lady.

The most prominent features of a menswear style are the cut, and the material. Typically, they have larger silhouettes, pleats and higher necklines. The materials are also thicker, and textures like tweed, houndstooth and twill are predominately used. This season, designers have updated the classic male look, and made it applicable for women everywhere. Feminine shapes, empire waists, cropped pants and colour have all been added to the style. Menswear is very easy to incorporate into everyday life, and it can be taken from a party to the office very easily. Just remember that you are a woman, and make sure that you dress for your body.

Vancouver Fashion Jobs – Lady Fingers

Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

Autumn is always bittersweet for me. It means crunchy leaves, gorgeous colours, and luscious fall accessories. But it also means that winter’s evil wrath is nearing closer. Considering the fact that we cannot fight Mother Nature, there is only one thing to do. Forget about our imminent hibernation and instead, embrace everything that is fabulous about this season – including beautifully chic fall gloves! This year, they’re retro, versatile, and oh so fun. Channel your inner bombshell with long lengths and fur-trimmed versions, or keep it casual with short, wrist grazers. Look for luxe textures like cashmere, suede and velvet. You can look posh and stay cozy too.

Here’s a look at our favourite styles:

1. Driving Gloves – The Quilted Driving Gloves by Rag & Bone ($280). Available at Shopbop
2. Fingerless Gloves – 3.1 Phillip Lim long fur gloves ($350) at Shopbop
3. Luscious Leather – Diane Von Furstenberg Alina Leather Gloves ($185) at Shopbop
4. Cozy Chic – Lord & Taylor Cashmere Bow-Embellished Long Gloves ($45)

5. Old Glamour – Diane Von Furstenberg Clarissa Leather Gloves in fuschia and black ($188), at Shopbop

6. Animal Print – Kate Spade Migonette Haircalf Long Bow Gloves ($245)

Montreal Fashion Jobs – Fall 2011 Makeup Trends

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

Ladies, Autumn 2011 is all about being bold. Luscious jewel-tones, classic 50s chic, sleek and rebellious black shades, as well as rock worthy metallics found their way into the season’s designer runway collections. Dries Van Noten was all about gold. At Haider Ackermann, we saw strong and sexy dark tones. Meanwhile, Marc Jacobs opted for Sophia Loren-inspired silhouettes and lady-like polka dots. Luckily for us, these current ready to wear obsessions also make for fabulous everyday inspiration. Whether you’re feeling rather “good girl” or more like “good girl gone bad”, try your hand at fall’s hottest makeup looks.

The Jewel-Tone Eye

To get the look, try Avon Mega Impact Eyeshadow ($8). This comes in six high impact colors, each with both a light and a dark hue for an easy jewel-tone smoky eye).

Other options include MAC’s mineralized eye shadows ($20) and Dior’s new “Blue Tie” Collection Palette ($70), available at The Bay.

The Rosy Cheek

The Winehouse Cat-Eye

This throwback to mod was seen at Lanvin, D&G and Alexander Wang among others. Winehouse fans can extend their cat eyes for more drama, or skip the mascara for a more discreet look. Look for easy gel or liquid liners, such as Revlon Colourstay Liquid Liner ($7.29 at most drugstores and at

The Spider Lash

To create fierce, Twiggy-esque spikes go for mascaras with a chunkier wand, like Rimmel London’s Extra Wow Lash ($4.99 at drugstores).

The Return of Red

Red lips at the Miu Miu show, also seen in their Fall 2011 ad campaign.

This classic look is back with a vengeance this fall. From Diane von Furstenberg to Ungaro, bright sexy reds and darker crimson lips were heating up the runways. For a similar seductive pout, turn to shades like YSL’s Rouge Volupte Perle in Mysterious Red ($34) at Nordstrom.

The Dash of Metallic

There seems to be a gold rush happening in terms of fall makeup. Cheeks, eyes, temples, and lips are being sprinkled with shimmery and metallic products.

Go for an ethereal glow with eyeshadow from Make Up Forever’s Star Power Diamond Collection ($24) at Sephora. Embrace all that glitters with Guerlain’s Kiss KissGloss in Peche Charnelle ($30.50) at Sephora . Although it is for lips, try dabbing some on your cheekbones, inner eyes, or temples for added sparkle.

Toronto Fashion Jobs – New Year Style Resolution

Sunday, January 9th, 2011

Although I’m not a huge believer in making New Year resolutions, this year I’ve decided to banish all of my sweatpants and leggings to the corner of my closet usually reserved for pajamas and loungewear. Just because we are creatures of comfort doesn’t mean that we have to sacrifice style, especially with the vast choice of trousers, harem pants, and slacks that are everywhere these days.

Here is just one great way to style a comfortable outfit without resorting to your most worn-in pair of sweats or leggings. Adding a cozy crop sweater, trendy lace-up boots, a splash of colour and some fun accessories completes the look of these chic but cozy Vivienne Westwood harem trousers.
