Finding a bag that works for you without sacrificing style is easier than you think! Here are some sleek styles to inspire your next purchase.

Office Style: The Pencil Skirt – #SNTFxRobson

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs

Fall is the time of year for new beginnings. Whether that means going back to school, seeking out your first professional job post-graduation, or transitioning into a new career path altogether, it is definitely the season of change for many. In Style Nine to Five’s new collaboration with Robson Street, I’ll be sharing weekly work-appropriate outfits that certainly don’t lack in the style department. DSC_0196-ddEdit

September marks a new beginning, and with fashion week looming, there’s inspiration all around. The way you dress is the perfect way to make a statement. When it comes to your career, you don’t want to go overboard with the trends, even if you are working in fashion. While in-the-moment pieces can definitely be incorporated into your work look, I still rely on the basics to tone down any loud items.

 

This week is all about the pencil skirt. The silhouette of a high-waisted pencil skirt is flattering, accentuating the smallest part of your body- the waist. Not only does the length make it work appropriate, there are also many styles and fabrications to choose from. Since we’re heading into fall, I chose a white faux leather pencil skirt. While the basic piece is timeless, the white is a fresh take on leather.  Yes, you CAN wear white after Labour Day. In fact, rocking white during fall is a great way to make a statement.

 

I paired the pencil skirt with a black sweater, sticking to a theme of black and white (colour blocking). I love how the sweater has a built in leather collar, that ties back to the leather of the skirt. When choosing heels for work, I always recommend a lower heel for maximum comfort. These pointed, strappy pumps fit the bill, and the red was a subtle way to work in a pop of colour into my look. I kept my accessories to a minimum, opting for a pair of classic studs as the rest of the pieces already had quite a bit of attitude.

 

The important thing to note is that my finished look featured pieces from various price points. I’m a huge fan of mixing higher and lower price point items. It’s all about mixing the right pieces together to look like and feel like a million bucks.

 

Outfit details: sweater from Club Monaco ($159.50), skirt from Zara ($59.90), heels from Aldo ($90), bracelet ($5.80) and earrings ($4.80) from Forever 21

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.

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

During these cold winter months, it can be difficult to find the perfect pair of shoes. You want a pair that can be easily worn outside, but they also need to look chic when you step inside. The shootie, which is a cross between a boot and a shoe, is the perfect pair to wear for most occasions.

The shootie is easily transferable and can be worn with pants, skirts or dresses. It comes with both heel, and flat options, making this shoe easy to wear regardless of whether you like heels or not. If you are looking to spice up your outfit, you can get a shootie in a cute colour, or with great details like buckles or studs. This shoe will work with most of your fall/winter outfits, and its versatility will allow it to last many seasons.

If you have been looking for a different, yet appropriate shoe, the shootie will be the newest addition to your footwear collection.

Fashion Jobs Vancouver – Chic Stocking Stuffers

After all your major presents have been purchased, it can be difficult to think of little items that will go in a stocking. The challenge is that you don’t want to spend too much money on these items, but at the same time, you want these presents to be heartfelt and fabulous.

Getting someone stocking stuffers that will make them feel warm and cozy is always a great way to go. Picking up slippers, some comfy pajamas or a beautiful scarf will always be a hit. If you’re buying for someone who is more fashion forward, then a bedazzled phone case or some geometric earrings may be the perfect gift in her stocking.

When buying little presents to fill a stocking, it really is the thought that counts and these gifts are just little additions to the main (present) event. When looking for small gifts, there are many options to help take the pressure off Santa, and make you look like a superstar.

1. H&M iPhone 4/4S Case, $6.95

2. Victoria’s Secret Fireside Ballet Slipper, $25.00

3. Forever 21Bunny Parade PJ Shorts, $9.80

4. Old Navy Women’s Monogram-Graphic Mittens, $5.00

With all the parties and events coming up you’ll barely have time to breathe let alone change, this is why work to play outfits and accessories are so popular nowadays.

This week I’ve rounded up some of my favorite day to play bags to share with our style nine to five readers. Trot these purses around all day then let them transition into the evening hours.

Calgary Fashion Jobs – Menswear Chic

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.

 

1. Zara Open-Back Jumpsuit, $99.90

2. H&M Boucle Jacket, $69.95

3. 3.1 Phillip Lim Oversized Trompe L’oeil Layered Peacoat, $1095.00

4. WALLIS Black and Cream Stripe Blouse, $68.00, available at The Bay

5. ALDO Leonsa, $80.00

6. Zara Trousers with Pleat Front, $69.90

Vancouver Fashion Jobs – Biker Chic

Black is a go-to colour that can be worn easily, and with everything. If there is one style that can make black look high fashion, it’s the biker chic genre.

There have been many reinventions of a biker-esque style. Regardless if designers are throwing back to a traditional leather inspiration, or if they have updated the look into modern times, the biker aesthetic is a classic. Typically, the components of this fashion are leather, boots, messy hair, studs and of course, a lot of black. This fall, you can update the traditional look by incorporating a sassy graphic tee, or by having a modern silhouette on a biker jacket.

One thing is for sure, looking biker chic this fall will be easy, and with a little bit of black and some attitude, you’ll be a badass in no time.

 

 

1. H&M Leather Trousers, $149.00

2. Zara Mini Skirt with Zips, $139.00

3. Urban Outfitter Blackstone Hell Yeah Muscle Tee, $39.00

4. Call it Spring Hameenlinna, $80.00

5. ALDO Accessories Ordoyne, $15.98

I can attest to the fact that there is nothing more exciting, or terrifying than starting your first year of university. While I can’t give you the secret to acing every exam (study?) or how to be on time for 8:30 class, I can give you tips on what to pack. If you’re living in a dorm, chances are closet space is limited, so make sure you bring the essentials. While many of your classmates may be showing up to class in sweats or gulp, pajamas, you should stick to jeans and layers for the fall. For the long days of library time that require comfort, try a pair of silk pants and a cashmere sweater. Lastly, a leather backpack will allow you to carry the essentials from lecture hall to lecture hall. Enjoy higher learning!

1. Flokarl Ankle Boot, $110 available at Aldo

2. Raiders Pack-tribe, $318 available at Roots

3. Sundry Terry Pullover in Heather Gray, $120 available at eLUXE

4. Ace Zen Rinse, $165 available at Fidelity

5. Cashmere Crewneck Sweater, $79 available Joe Fresh
