Fashion Jobs – The New Dressy

Thursday, August 20th, 2015

ST95-ADS

To me, a white button up is the ultimate staple in masculine dressing. Pairing this versatile item with a pair of shorts adds the perfect touch of femininity. My favourite type of shorts to pair this with are high-waisted cut offs along with some lace up sandals. Messily tuck in the button-up for an undone yet sophisticated look. For a more feminine look, pair a slim-fitting silk dress shirt with shorts in a matching colour. I love to pair navy with navy for this look and top it off with a pair of chunky heels. For an edgier look, I wear my silk black shorts with a sheer black dress shirt and pointed-toe booties. Pairing a dress shirt with shorts is so versatile, and can so easily be changed with a few simple accessories to create an effortless outfit.

Fashion Jobs – The Best Black Pumps

Tuesday, August 11th, 2015

ST95-ADS

A good pair of black pointed-toe pumps is a wardrobe staple. While this shoe can be worn any time of year with almost anything, certain styles are more appropriate for various occasions. For office wear, I love a great pair of pointed toe mules like the Schutz pair pictured. These are professional but also interesting and add some excitement into a conservative office outfit. A simpler pair of black pointed toe pumps (see Head Over Heels pair pictured) is better paired with dark jeans and a casual t-shirt or sweater to amplify the look. Lastly, I like to add some edge to a more feminine look like a dress or flowy skirt with a pair of black pumps like the TopShop or Valentino pairs pictured. This little touch adds an unexpected element to more girly attire. While these options are how I like to wear my pointed black pumps, the beauty of this shoe is its versatility, so choose a pair that goes with your personal style!

Fashion Jobs – Blue Jean Baby: Denim Dresses for the Office

Wednesday, August 5th, 2015

ST95-ADS

denimdressinspiration

Times, they are a-changing. Once relegated to casual Fridays, denim in many cases has become more acceptable in offices and other workplaces and as a result, there are tons of diverse ways to wear it. Denim button-downs have been a staple for a few years now, but the spring runways (notably Gucci and Stella McCartney) have seen an onslaught of denim dresses that would work well for both the summer and fall months. As you may recall from a recentblog post discussing denim pinafore dresses, you can easily mix any given denim piece with other fabrics and textures to create a variety of different looks and moods. A looser, streamlined denim dress can look surprisingly sleek on its own, and a more frayed style will give you a gritty, urban feel – a far cry from the Canadian tuxedo. Almost as famous as the relationship itself, the world will never forget the denim gown Britney Spears wore in 2000 when she and Justin Timberlake first publicly acknowledged their rumoured romance. With any luck, your own denim dress will be just as memorable.

Fashion Jobs – White Blazers the Right Way

Tuesday, August 4th, 2015

ST95-ADS

Personally, I do not believe in the “no white after Labour Day” rule. For this reason, I love to wear a classic white blazer as a transitional piece coming into fall. This look is so classic and crisp and really pulls together any outfit. I love to pair my oversize white blazer with high-waisted denim shorts, a tee shirt and sneakers to add some contrast to the look. I also love to see a white silk blazer paired with a navy pencil skirt for a more professional outfit. For a dressier nighttime look, I wear my white blazer with high-waisted loose trousers, a crop top, and mules. This piece is so great because it can really be paired with any of the neutral pieces you have in your closet (dressy or casual), and adds that extra something to pull the whole look together perfectly!

Fashion Jobs – Leave Your Hat On

Wednesday, July 29th, 2015

ST95-ADSfloppyhatinspiration

Remember the days of yore when a woman wouldn’t be caught dead outside of her house without a hat? There’s something about a floppy, wide brimmed chapeau that harkens to the bold yet outrageously feminine appeal of Dior’s “New Look” from back in the day, while also calling to mind the carefree comfort and simplicity of the summer months. Floppy hats are an excellent way to add a touch of whimsy (without being girlish) to your ensemble and a timeless way to celebrate summer while still maintaining a delightfully business casual look.

Fashion Jobs – Wide Legs

Friday, July 24th, 2015

ST95-ADS

Wide leg trousers and culottes should be a staple in anyone’s professional wardrobe. Regardless of what industry you work in, this look is always sophisticated and polished without being too complicated or dressy. Depending on the dress code in your office, any of these trousers can be paired with a simple silk t-shirt or a slim white button down. I love to wear my wide culottes to work with a simple top and a colorful pair of slingbacks. Another great take on this seventies-inspired trend is pairing a wide-leg pant with a matching knit sweater or sleeveless boxy blouse (I love grey-on-grey or all navy). However you wear them, these pants are perfect for a pulled-together and professional look.

Fashion Jobs – Totally For Pinafore

Monday, July 20th, 2015

ST95-ADS

Pinafore_Inspiration

Pinafore dresses are all the rage this season. With denim and overalls alike being a huge trend, pinafore dresses provide the possibility to combine the two for the ultimate on-trend outfit. This bold trend allows you to take contemporary pieces and materials a step further to fully demonstrate your impeccable sense of style. Pinafore dresses are great for the office and can easily be transitioned to a night-out by changing your accessories. You can also change up what you wear underneath to develop the look in whichever direction you please. By adding a knit tank underneath, you are able to play around with different textures. For a day time look, pair your pinafore dress with some heeled sandals. To transition the look to be more appropriate for a night out, pick out some great platform heels for a fun retro look.

Fashion Jobs – Summer of Shoulders

Wednesday, July 15th, 2015

ST95-ADS

shoulder1shoulder2shoulder3shoulder4shoulder5shoulder6

Off the shoulder tops, dresses, jumpsuits, and even bikinis are a major trend this summer. I absolutely love this look because it so pretty and feminine, and shows some skin without baring too much. It also allows an outfit to be interesting even if it is quite basic. This is the perfect look for a date or summer barbeque! Reformation has done a fantastic job with this trend. Their billowy tops and linen dresses epitomize easy summer dressing. I love to wear an off the shoulder dress with a pair of basic slides, or a tunic with cropped jeans and strappy sandals. For the risk takers, some amazing bikinis are available in this style- especially the ones by Sahara Ray (beware of tan lines). This seventies-inspired look is so great for the warmer months, and can easily take you from a beach day to a dinner date!

 

1. Reformation Nashville Dress, $168 USD

2. Zara Off the Shoulder Poplin Shirt, $50

3. MissGuided Floral Print Off the Shoulder Crop Top, $48, available at ASOS

Fashion Jobs Toronto – To Have and to Hold

Wednesday, February 19th, 2014

 

ST95-ADS

 

Purses and bags are my favourite accessory. I have more than I probably should, but I always find a way to justify a new one. This year, purse trends for the spring aren’t a complete surprise. Seasonal favourites like florals and pastels are back, textures and black and white add some luxury, while classic shapes continue the retro comeback. Since a handbag is a personal item made for carrying your everyday items, only you can know what works best. But in the meantime, I’ve picked a few of the ones I love for the spring.

1 ASOS

 

1. This purse exemplifies the top handle trend. A feminine take on the doctor bag, the top handle is big with a structured everyday bag, but we’ve also seen it in smaller versions all over the runway. ASOS Top handle handbag, $120.

2 DEUX LUX

 

2. For evenings or weekend brunches, the clutch is getting a makeover. The larger, less structured clutch is being favoured over its hard shell-like predecessor. Deux Lux Clutch, $115, available at Nordstrom.

3 FOSSIL

 

3. Pastels are always a spring staple. This season we’re seeing lots of blush and petal pinks but this green is a nice alternative. Fossil mini bag, $88.

 

 6 MCCARTNEY

4. I have to admit I was surprised to see the bucket bag make a comeback. It seems so dated to me but once I saw the makeover it got (great hardware, bright colours and lots of detail) I must say I may be coming around. Stella McCartney, $1075, available at Ssense.

 4 MINKOFF

5. Fringe is back. This hippie inspired look is perfect for the coming summer months of music festivals and beach trips. Rebecca Minkoff, $215, available at Nordstrom.

5 JUICY

6. If you just can’t pick one texture or material, then a mixed media handbag is for you. The combination of leather with studs, or linen and canvas is a great way to add detail and make a statement. Juicy Couture, $160

As the transition from winter to spring begins, it’s important to have a few pieces in your wardrobe that work on both chilly and warmer days. Owning a great knitted top is the perfect piece to bring you into the spring season.

There are many features about knitted tops, which make the pieces incredibly versatile. You can wear sweaters loose or tight fitted, and they can be fun or work appropriate. Since spring is around the corner, there are many options that are in lighter shades such as beige or pink, but you can always select the classic black to ensure longevity. A knitted top is cute paired with skinny jeans or a skirt, and can be either casual or classy. If you have been looking for a style that you will be able to wear in the cold, as well as once the weather has warmed up, the knitted sweater will be the new go-to item in your closet.

 1. Le Chateau Tweed Cut-Out Sweater, $49.95

2. Le Chateau Open Stitch Boat Neck Sweater, $39.95

3. Avenue A Sweater, $75.00, available at Aritzia

4. H&M Knitted Jumper $29.95

5. TOBI Twisted Over You Knit Sweater, $90.00

6. Free People Seeing in Black and White Pullover, $51.62

7. ASOS Vila Animi Knit Top, $62.42

8. Zara Knit Crop Top, $59.90
