Fashion Jobs – 5 Work Pants for Summer

Thursday, June 15th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaIn a perfect world we would all be able to wear our favourite pair of cut-offs to the office during summer. You know, that pair that hugs you in all the right places and shows off your legs. But unfortunately, shorts aren’t always the preferred bottom in some work environments. This summer, rather than only feeling as if you can only wear skirts and dresses, we wanted to share a few styles of dress pants that are warm weather approved.

We’ve rounded up our favourite airy silhouettes and fun, colourful options that will take you just about anywhere from BBQ work parties, late-night deadlines and the usual case of running errands. We’ve selected pants that feature lighter fabrics, a variety of price points and included chic ways to style these pant for summer.

So, take charge and beat the heat this summer with these five styles of work pants that you need in your life ASAP.

1.Bold Print

The Bright Crop:

These stunning silk-twill pants will help keep you feeling cool and ready to take on anything that comes your way. They are meant to fit high on the waist, which helps to make your waist appear slimmer.

Style Tip: Style with your favourite white or pastel coloured short sleeved button-up and add a fabulous heeled sandal to make the body appear taller and slimmer.

2.Seamless Culottes

The Seamless Culottes

Viscose material showcases simplicity but also can be elevated when paired with the perfect shoe and blouse. This drapey but sensible culottes style will provide comfort to the fullest, especially on those days when you have back-to-back meetings. These flowy beauties will have you feeling as if you’re hanging beach side feeling every breeze.

Style Tip: These culottes look best when paired with an off the shoulder top, preferably in sky blue or sun kissed orange. If you want ultimate comfortability, pair with a loafer with a one-inch heel.

3. Cropped

The Cropped Wide-Leg

This tapered wide-leg has got what it takes to bring on the summer heat — all while looking polished and sleek. Its slight cropped feature makes it breezy enough to play with flats, sneakers or a block heel. The added self-adjusted belt makes it more appealing for the eyes and the figure!

Style Tip: We recommend styling with statement coloured tops in royal blue or dark green. A simple coloured t-shirt would also look great, just pair with a playful necklace or a printed neck scarf for a chic look.

4. Cropped Trouser

The Cropped Trouser

There’s no better way to stand out of the crowd than with a pair of fuchsia trousers. These chic beauties are not only a steal, but they are made with a breathable fabric so you can stay cool without sacrificing the look of a great trouser.

Style Tip: We recommend pairing these beauties with either a black or white short-sleeved blouse and a pair of black heeled mules.

5. Cuffed khaki pant

Cuffed Khaki

Nothing reminds us of summer more than a pair of khaki pants. But thankfully we’re not picturing the extremely fitted style we used to wear during middle school. Now, we’re all about the high-waisted, cropped bell-bottom style that is perfect for those warm summer days.

Style Tip: Wear with a structured white button up and a pair of white or tan slides or mules for an effortlessly chic look.

Fashion Jobs – Three Ways to Style a Slip Dress

Tuesday, May 30th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaAinsley Inspo Image

If the fashion gods could speak, we’re pretty sure they’d say that the slip dress isn’t going out of style anytime soon. But how could it? It can be dressed down with sneakers, a basic Tee, and a bomber; dressed up with strappy sandals and a bralette, or styled with a blouse and a pair of ankle boots for the office — clearly showing no indication of losing its allure anytime soon. If you have yet to try out this boudoir-inspired trend for yourself, you’ve definitely come to the right place. We’ve put together our three favourite ways to style a slip dress, from the boardroom to brunch, to a night on the town.

1. For the Office

2. Long slip dress 3.Oversized Blazer 4.Ankle Booties

For the Office

When it comes to styling a slip dress for the office, you want to ensure that you adhere to all dress codes, while still remaining fashionable. This means aiming for a dress that covers your knees. Style a longer slip dress with a pair of ankle boots and an oversized blazer for a sophisticated look.

5.For Brunch 6.Bomber 7.Yellow Slip Dress 8. Nude Sock Booties

For Brunch

We have to say, Hailey Baldwin nailed this afternoon street style look, and it can easily be replicated for your next girl’s brunch or afternoon patio drinks. When it comes to styling a slip dress for summer, we recommend going for a more playful hue like yellow, mango, or navy blue. This piece can then be styled with a complimenting bomber jacket and a pair of subtle ankle boots or sneakers.

9. For a night out 10.Rose Slip Dress 11.Rose Duster 12. Thigh High Boots

For A Night Out

If you have a night on the town coming up, we recommend taking a few style notes from Kendall Jenner and make a statement with a monochrome ensemble. Style a nude, peach, or light pink slip dress with a matching duster coat and a pair of thigh-high or ankle boots.

Fashion Jobs – Five Office Approved Dresses

Tuesday, May 30th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion job in Canada

When we think of summer, what first comes to mind is the beach, sunshine, and of course, dresses! Hopefully this season you’ll be able to find shade with a fabulous sun hat, but if that doesn’t help you beat the heat try on a breezy dress that’s both warm weather and office approved.

1. Cold Shoulder -

The Cold Shoulder

For those days when you find your calendar filled with back-to-back meetings, a dress with cut out shoulders and flowing sleeves will provide you with ultimate comfort. This floral number works for all body types and can be paired with a pair of sandals or white sneakers — depending on how casual your office is.

2.The Shirt Dress

The Shirt Dress

The shirt dress is definitely the office-approved dress of the season, thanks to its short sleeves and slimming silhouette that’s perfect for all body types. A cinched waist will help you show off your figure, which is an added bonus for women with an hourglass shape. Whichever colour, print or fabric you may choose, we recommend wearing a strappy sandal. This is one summer dress that will have you wanting to wear it on multiple occasions.

3.Fit and Flare

The Fit and Flare

A fit-and-flare dress is a fun summer option that enhances slimmer figures by enhancing the waist. We love the collar and t-shirt sleeves on this Self-Portrait number. But if you still feel like you need an additional layer, a slightly boxy, cropped blazer works best.

4. The Printed Dress

The Printed Dress

A playful printed dress is a great way to stand out against the sea of black and grey pantsuits worn by your colleagues. This gorgeous Tory Burch is great because you won’t need to wear a cardigan with it, and can be worn dressed up with heels or down with a pair of sneakers or flats for more casual days.

5. The Sheath Dress

The Sheath Dress

A fitted sheath dress is the perfect dress for creating the illusion of curves, while still looking professional. We recommend choosing a sheath dress in a summer-approved print like floral or stripes, which can be played down by wearing a blazer or a cardigan over top, not to mention this will help keep you warm if the AC is cranked too high on a warm day.

Fashion Jobs – Styling ‘Mom’ Jeans for Summer

Thursday, May 25th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaInspirational Image

Definitely the “it” cut for the year, the ‘mom’ jean can be found on every celebrity and street style blog. As a baggier cut jean, this style is one that can transition into summer, especially on cooler days or breezy nights. We don’t plan on taking our mom Jeans off anytime soon and we thought you felt the same way too, so here are our top picks for how to style them this summer!

1.For the office

For The Office

Mom Jeans at the office are a total go, especially on casual Fridays. Dress up the look by pairing with a classic heel and blazer to avoid looking too casual. Remember: keep the look clean and professional, and avoid distressed denim or raw hems.

For The Model Off-Duty Look

Mom Jeans are known for their casual fit and feel and are usually the way models, bloggers and celebrities alike choose to wear them when they’re off-duty. We love them styled casually with a sneaker and band tee to walk the streets, or picnic with friends in the park.

3.For a Festival

For The Festival Goer

Festivals are for so much more than just music, food and art — festivals are also an opportunity to show off how you’re styling the season’s biggest trends. Mom Jeans are great to take you from the hot afternoons and into the cooler nights. Kendall is looking country-boho cool in her crop top, mom jeans and ankle boots.

4.For a night out

For A Night Out

Take your new favourite jeans from day to night! Add some sex appeal to your mom jeans for by styling them with a cami or bodysuit and a strappy sandal. Whether it’s date night or a night on town with your girls, high-waisted mom jeans aren’t just for stay at home moms anymore!

Fashion Jobs – The 5 Items Successful Women Always Wear

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canadacarly inspirational image

Now that Mother’s Day is behind us, there’s no better time to look back and seek style inspiration from some of the most successful working women today.  We’ve scoured the Internet and tracked down the most stylish and polished looks come from the biggest boss ladies’ in the workplace. Whether it is Michelle Obama’s sensible dresses, Anna Wintour’s chic aesthetic or Olivia Palermo’s effortless simplicity; it’s time to celebrate our style icons and take professional dressing to women everywhere.

1. Minimalistic Dress

Minimalistic dress

From being a political power figure, Michelle Obama demonstrated her tasteful fashion sense throughout her eight years as First Lady of The United States.  Through speaking at humanitarian summits to working in the office, she radiated in her statement dresses, killer pumps and the best accessories a woman could go after! Women in their 50’s should follow in Obama’s footsteps and try a J. Crew dress with a cashmere cardigan, tights and loafers with an inch or a statement heel, as it’s a look that will have all eyes on you.

2. powerpant suit

Power-Pant Suit

Environmental activist and former Mrs. Universe Canada 2015, Ashley Callingbull-Burnham takes office wear to a whole new level. The modern pantsuit now comes in a playful colour or print or perhaps in a slouchy silhouette or culottes style for younger generations. Now that warmer temperatures are on the rise, try a mint, coral or classic pinstripe pantsuit to showcase what innovative ideas you bring to the table!

3. Statement necklace

Statement Jewellery

Not sure how to amplify your power suit and make it more feminine? Take style advice from New York fashionista Olivia Palmero’s as is always seen rocking the streets of NYC adorned in bold, statement accessories. The perfect staple accessory for every working woman is a bold necklace in a hue that compliments your work attire. Not a fan of jewellery? A perfect substitute is to wear a sharp watch for those never-ending meetings, such as a timeless rose gold Movado watch to keep your schedule intact.

4. purse

The Everyday Purse

Every working woman needs a purse that can carry them from the office to après work festivities. Having an adjustable strap and a structured box shape will ensure to hold all your cards and information for every meeting. For the warm, summer months a colourful bag is the perfect addition to your formal office attire.

5.Block Heel

The Block Heel

A successful woman struts in the room and has a high sense of power in her favourite pumps, loafers and sandals. Investing in a fabulous pair of block heels will not only save your feet from the pain of stilettos, but they can be worn outside of work as well.

Fashion Jobs – Trend Alert: How to Style Cropped Flares

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canada

From ‘Mom’ Jeans to cropped Flares, we’re loving the alternative to skinny jeans this year. If you have yet try this wide-leg style and you’re wondering how you can transition from your trusted skinnies then keep reading! We’ve put together some blogger-approved tips that will help your rock this trend like a pro.

1. The Muse

The Muse

Cropped flares can come in the form of jeans or trousers and depending on what kind of work environment you’re in, you can easily pull off this chic look by following in the footsteps of fashionista and footwear designer Haley Boyd who has mastered this trend.

3. Striped2. Frame Denim
The Styles

When you’re shopping for your own cropped flares you can either pick up the bootleg version or a wide leg version if you’re feeling more daring. Traditionally, wide leg will look more professional in a work environment, so if that’s what you’re after then you can find a great pair from designers like Acne Studios. If you’re looking for something more casual, designers like FRAME have a plethora of colours to choose from. Once you’ve found your base you can move onto styling the rest.

4. The Top

The Top

When adding a top, choose something that’s understated — you’re going to want all eyes below your waist. Opting for a white top would allow you to play around with different coloured shoes and accessories.

5. The Shoes
The Shoes

As for selecting the perfect shoe, again use Haley Boyd as inspiration and choose a bold, playful heel like her Marais USA Heels as they always pair nicely with crops. You can find amazing dupes or similar styles at Zara or Mango.

6. Statement Earrings

7. Chic Sunnies

The Accessories

Finally, add your outfit’s finishing touches by adding a pair of statement earrings (which are super on trend this season) and a pair of chic retro-inspired sunglasses.

Fashion Jobs – Ditch the Heels and Welcome the Mule

Monday, May 15th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canada

Inspirational Image

Women everywhere anticipate the moment when they can (literally) kick off their heels and feel their toes again.

With open toe season quickly approaching, let’s ditch the uncomfortable heels and go for a more unexpected approach to our footwear options. Mules are having a serious moment this year and the new ‘it’ shoe has created quite the stir.

We can’t get over the ease and comfort this shoe brings, and with all the different styles available, ditch the straps and six- inch heels and opt for a chic backless option that will have you strutting around town like the fashionista you are.

You will find yourself gravitating towards this style due to its eccentric and effortless style and because it will elevate your look for every outing. From ‘90s-inspired metallic to millennial pink, here’s the inspiration you need to stock up on a few pairs for the season.

1.Metallic

The Eye-Catching Mule

Metallic shoes are having a moment right now and silver mules are an easy way to add some serious edge to your look. This eye-catching shoe style will quickly become a wardrobe staple and will go with more in your closet than you may assume.

2.Dressy

The Elegant Mule

When choosing a mule for a special occasion you’ll definitely want to increase the heel height and go for something a bit more elegant. To achieve this, we recommend exploring luxe suede and satin fabrics with classy detailing like subtle bows and jewels.

3.Mesh

The Edgy Mule

For the girl who is low- key but still wants to show some edge to her outfit, a shorter, block heel with mesh is the way to go. This style is sleek and sexy and is perfect for a night out, not to mention you’ll definitely be comfortable the entire night.

4.Satin Fabric

The Flat Mule

We all need a great flat in our shoe repertoire, a go to when you have ten seconds to throw on a pair of shoes and get out the door. A satin mule adds a touch of fun to an outfit, but still says, “I have business to take care of.” Looking smart and polished is exactly what a satin or leather flat mule will give you.

5.Vibrant

The Vibrant Mule

A vibrant mule is perfect for the bold woman who loves channeling her inner Carrie Bradshaw by strutting her stuff in a statement shoe. If this sounds like you, a hot pink mule with floral detailing is all you need this season. This style goes with everything from a crisp white tee and jeans to a flirty, floral dress, easily making you the liveliest woman in the room.

Fashion Jobs – The 5 Hottest Spring Sandals

Saturday, May 13th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaInspirational ImageNow that April’s messy showers are (hopefully) behind us, we can finally focus on what’s important: cute spring sandals. Spring is the perfect transition season to introduce those warm-weather pieces to your wardrobe, while still needing to layer up in the mornings and evenings with jackets and sweaters. Although it might not be warm enough for flip-flops just yet, who says you can’t start showing off your pedicure with a pair of chic spring sandals? Here are our top picks for the season!

1. Aldo Shoes Angilia

Vacation Mode

What screams “I’m ready for summer” better than tropical foliage? The monstera leaf print paired with a small heel and thin strap are a fun take on a classic style. We recommend these Angilla sandals from Aldo with a pant and blouse for work or your favourite boyfriend jean and tee on the weekends.

2. MA Skinz Fox Fur Slides

A Little Bit of Diva

We are totally obsessed with these dramatic fur slides by M.A. Skinz in this season’s must-have colour, blush. These cozy slides are the perfect thing to commute to the office in instead of your stilettos without sacrificing style. M.A. Skinz is designed and made in Canada so you can feel good supporting a Canadian brand!

3. Zara High Heel Mesh Sandal

No Meshing Around

This mesh mule from Zara is both elegant and edgy, without sacrificing comfort with this chunky heel and leather sole. Let it take you from the office to date night all season long, and well into the summer months thanks to its breathable design.

4. Sam Edelman TaiSlide

A Little Tied Up

Strappy shoes are all the rage right now, but colder mornings and evenings might make it a little hard to want to wear your favourite gladiators. The Sam Edelman Tai Slide Sandal has a fuller coverage slide and keeps on trend with a wraparound ankle strap to dress up the look.

5. Vince Camuto Fauna Suede Sandals

Casual Bohemian

We love a good all-day sandal and these suede sandals by Vince Camuto are a mix between style and comfort. The cut-out design, block heel and braided laces makes these sandals the perfect match for a good pair of jeans or floral dress.

Fashion Jobs – The 5 Colours You Need to Incorporate Into Your Summer Wardrobe

Saturday, May 13th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaCarly Inspirational Image

Now that it’s May, it officially means it’s officially time to start preparing your wardrobe for the inevitable summer weather that’s on the horizon. The best way to prepare your wardrobe is to start incorporating warm weather-approved colours like orange, pink, yellow,  paradise blue, and tropical green. There’s really no better time than the summer to incorporate these vibrant hues into your wardrobe, and our guide will definitely lead you in the right direction.

1.Orange

Sunrise Orange

This colour has made a major comeback in the fashion world — from the perfect cocktail dress and tinted aviator shades to your fave beauty trends. This season, try rocking a pair of work pants in a light material for those scorching summer days. A ruffle cuff provides a sense of comfortability, while the tapered waist is chic addition.

2.Pink

Pink

Trust us, pink will definitely be a welcomed addition to your summer wardrobe! This season, light pink is the perfect nude for office wear as it’s on trend without making too big of a statement. For the office, try a strappy camisole with a navy or grey blazer tucked matching capris pants.

3.Blue

Paradise Blue

This season, we’re switching up the black work wear for a more colourful replacement. We recommend swapping your dark blacks for more vibrant hues of paradise blue. This is hue is a great way to bring some life to your otherwise predictable work wear.

4. Yellow

Yellow

This is definitely the colour that brings out your inner sunshine! This summer, treat yourself to a flowy mid-length skirt in a sunny hue and you’ll definitely manage to turn a head or two. We truly believe that yellow is the colour that stands out from the crowd and surely you will too! Pair this skirt with a crisp, white button-up or a pastel colour blouse and you’ll be instantly ready for après work festivities.

5.Green

Tropical Green

Add a little green to your step this summer, rather than just seeing it in the grass or trees! If you’re not a fan of playing with bold colours, try a more subtle green that will be easier on the eyes. We can’t get enough of these tropical green sandals, as they have a bock heel that will be sturdy enough for those long days at work.

Fashion Jobs – Sweats For Every Occasion

Tuesday, May 9th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaInspirational Image

There comes a time in every woman’s day when she drifts away in thought, fantasizing about the moment she can go home and jump into her sweats. The feeling of being liberated from your Spanks and skirts gives you a flash of encouragement and determination to finish off the day.

But what if we could take our sweats from the weekend couch to après work dinner and drinks? We aren’t talking about the grey track pants you wear to bed; we mean a sporty pantsuit to take you from running around the office to your evening events. Allow us to teach you how you can take your sweats to the next level and how you can sport this trend sophistically to every occasion.

1. sweats black work (1)Nine-To-Five

The working woman has her standard, professional Monday to Friday uniform that has her dressed in appropriate office attire. She doesn’t think it’s unfathomably possible to wear sweatpants to work, but we’re here to change her mind. You can get away with rocking the ‘sweatpant’ look by creating a monochromatic outfit in darker shades. This will prevent the pants from making too much of a statement. A blazer and pumps will sharpen and complement your discrete sweats.

2. sweats aritzia pink(1)

Brunch Babe

Any activity that involves copious amounts of food requires some form of sweatpants for all around comfort. Whether it is a casual gathering or a full-blown foodie event, this is the time to show your personal style and experiment with the casual, comfy look. Brunch and sweats go hand in hand, and pairing a soft pink pull-on pant with a relaxed blouse creates an effortless yet chic look in a matter of seconds.

3. sweats song of style leather

Girls Night

Who would ever think to wear slouchy, comfy pants to a girl’s night out on the town? A pair of leather sweatpant-inspired trousers will make you the center of attention as they’re a mix of comfy, edgy, and sex. For a night out, pair this style of pants with a simple strappy heel to dance so you can dance the night away. Paired with either a bodysuit or a button down blouse, you’ll be the ultimate cool girl in these luxe faux leather sweats.

4. sweats aritzia weekend

Weekend Warrior

Once the work week is behind us, we’re granted two days of freedom to do and wear whatever we want so why not ditch the heels and swap them out for hip sweats and sneakers. For a modern and chic weekend look, rock a culotte-style pant in a knit fabric and style with layering tops and sweaters.

5. sweats pinterest blue good

Style Maven

To all the women who are adventurous and always up for trying new things, we’ve got the pants for you. A pair of straight leg, high-waisted sweatpants will instantly make you forget about all the other trousers you have in your wardrobe and will leave you wanting to buy them in every colour. Worn with a blouse and heels, the straight leg sweatpant is extremely versatile giving off an elegant yet sporty vibe.
