Fashion Jobs – Summer Scarves

Monday, July 20th, 2015

 

ST95-ADSscarfinspiration

Rainy weather? Bad hair day? Need to cover a “love bite”? Been there, story of my life, and don’t get me started. Luckily a scarf is a one-size-fits-all solution which can be worn a million different ways and never goes out of style. Now I know you know that a brightly coloured or beautifully patterned scarf is one of the best ways to make your jeans and t-shirt combo a little less #basic, and we’ve all spent hours of our lives scrolling through Pinterest looking at all the different ways to tie scarves. A silk scarf is the height of breezy sophistication when worn knotted around your neck or over your head, à la Jackie Kennedy, but you can create a boho vibe by wearing it as a turban or headband as well. No matter how you wear them, summer scarves are the perfect accessory to give your ensemble an effortless boost. Check out some of the beautiful creations below.

Fashion Jobs – Camel Bags

Long before Grace Kelly famously used her namesake Hermès bag to cover her baby bump from a sea of eager paparazzi, purses and handbags have been seen as a hallmark of success and taste for women.  While some may argue that the age of the “It Bag” has come and gone, it’s undeniable that the right bag can transform your entire look as well as keep you organized. Neutral tones are having a significant moment right now, and a bag in shades of camel, beige or taupe will carry you seamlessly from season to season. A well-made leather bag will last you a lifetime so it’s well worth the investment, and there have never been more vegan options and leather alternatives that look as great in a professional setting as they do everywhere else.

Fashion Jobs Montreal – Beach Trends

Tuesday, April 21st, 2015

It won’t be long before we all begin migrating to the beach every chance we get. The next thought that comes to mind for us fashion lovers is how we can incorporate the latest beach trends into our look.

 

One of my favourite swimwear looks is the high wasted bikini. Flattering for all body shapes while remaining stylish and sexy, you can’t go wrong! If you prefer a bit more coverage, use a sarong as either a skirt or a dress for your walks on the beach, or some relaxing lounging.  Personally, I love my big and floppy hats! If you’re not sure that you’re up for channeling your inner Samantha Jones, a regular wide brim hat will keep you protected and fashionable at the same time. For extra coverage from the sun, a pair of aviator sunglasses will always be one of “those” items that just never go out of style. When it comes to flats, I am not a fan! Especially flip-flops! If I have to wear them, I like something fun and embellished. Lastly, to complete your beach trendy look you will need a good-sized bag to cram everything you need into it and off you go!

Fashion Jobs – Spring Fashion 2015

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs

Hello, Spring! It’s been a while.
Although, it doesn’t entirely feel like Spring because it’s still a little chilly. I can definitely deal with it because it’s far better than the bitter cold; in the meantime, I’ve been distracting myself with a lot of online shopping to transition into the season.

 

I’ve compiled a short-and-sweet list of this seasons’s must-haves that are suitable for chilly to warm weather without the typical floral patterns. The key here is to layer and remove pieces accordingly!

1

Just a Jean Jacket


A classic. Pair it with (almost) anything in your closet and you’re already looking springtime fresh since it’s seriously time to ditch your parka. Gap Denim Jacket, $69.95 CAD

 

2

A Little Fancier


If you want to top off your outfit with something a little less casual, a bright, textured and lightweight jacket will definitely do the trick. Zara Jacket, $99.90 CAD

3

Wrap It Up


Scarves are perfect for Spring – especially in the mornings when it’s a bit chiller. The best thing about Aritzia’s blanket scarves are that they’re versatile enough to be styled in that regard or as a cape. Aritzia Scarf, $75 CAD

4

Metallic Kicks

A pair of pointed oxfords can instantly add sophistication to any outfit and a silver pair screams Spring. Aldo Shoes, $100 CAD

1. Black Blazer: H&M Figure-Fit Jacket, $39.95

Fashion Jobs – 5 Spring Must-Haves

With March in full swing, and the weather warming up on the west coast, spring is officially in the air. As a customary greeting to the season of new life and rebirth, it’s time to bid winter’s heavy knits and sombre neutrals farewell, and adopt a lighter, brighter disposition for the coming months.

There’s nothing more exciting than prepping your wardrobe for the new season. Whether that means swapping out cold weather favourites for the pieces that received the most mileage last spring, or purchasing new additions altogether – I’m willing to bet the following items will be making more than just a few appearances in your future ensembles.

Guess Jeans

A Pair of Light Wash Denim:

Light wash denim is the perfect (and much less daunting) alternative to white denim for spring. Cropped, distressed, or boyfriend-cut styles in lightweight fabrics are all great options to consider when adding to your jean collection.

Aldo

A Strappy Block Heel

A strappy block heel is really the best of both worlds – offering the stability of a winter bootie, while giving you a chance to show off that fresh pedicure as the temperatures start rising!

Michael Kors

A Vibrant Crossbody

Neutrals may be the dominating palette when it comes to winter fashion, but spring is all about colour, and vibrant colour at that. Invest in a small to mid-sized crossbody bag, just roomy enough to fit all your essentials into, which can also serve as the exclamation point to any outfit.

Club Monaco

 

A Trench Coat

Unfortunately, the dawn of spring doesn’t necessary mean automatic t-shirt weather, as is the case in many places. If I had to choose one outerwear piece to wear all season, it would be a quality trench coat. This versatile piece will protect you against the spring breeze, all the while being anything but stuffy.

Banana Republic

A Go-To Button Down

Every girl needs a white button down. Whether you prefer cotton, linen, or even silk (for a bit of luxe) – this wardrobe staple will undoubtedly be working overtime this spring.

Office Style: The Pencil Skirt – #SNTFxRobson

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

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
