Fashion Jobs – 7 Winter Outfits to Steal from New York Fashion Week Style Stars

Friday, February 16th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaMain Image

It’s late winter, and if you’re feeling the same way I currently am then you may be hitting a bit of a style rut. It can be tough to get creative with your wardrobe when it feels like spring is nowhere in sight, so why not look to street style’s best for some outfit inspiration? The following photos showcase some of New York Fashion Week’s most stylish ladies to help us get through the last weeks of Winter 2018.

Street Style 1

  1. Sticking to shades of neutral greys and blacks, this casual but stylish look would keep you warm on even the toughest days of a Canadian winter. A chunky scarf worn under a plaid coat can get bulky, so counter that with a waist-cinching belt like the woman pictured here (or a belt bag if you’re feeling brave!).Street Style 2
  2. Some things never go out of style, and this outfit is a great example of those pieces. With wardrobe staples like a simple turtleneck, a pair of black jeans, and a classic camel overcoat, you have an outfit formula that can be worn on repeat for seasons to come. Just add a pair of aviator sunglasses and a red lip, and you’re Fashion Week ready!Street Style 3
  3. If you’re looking for a way to spice up your winter wardrobe, then a statement coat in a vibrant hue is a great alternative to standard neutral tones. Worn over contrasting colours, this matching coat and handbag combo makes a big impact no matter where you’re heading this winter.Street Style 4
  4. Berets are definitely having a moment, and this outfit makes a strong case for matching your beret to your other accessories – lips included. Another cozy outfit idea to take from this look? A teddy-bear faux-fur coat truly goes with anything.Street Style 5
  5. A window-pane plaid can easily be worn to the office throughout the winter, but why not update your suits with edgy accessories? A pair of chunky boots and a colourful bag transform this look from office-ready to cool-girl chic in no time at all.Street Style 6
  6. Athleisure seems to be here to stay, but Kendall Jenner goes for full glam-leisure in this Adidas tracksuit outfit. To get Kendall’s look, opt for white mules and futuristic shades to make sure that nobody confuses your outfit with gym clothes.Street Style 7
  7. As we’ve discussed on the Style Nine to Five blog before, Ultraviolet is Pantone’s colour of the year and shades of purple will be seen everywhere. Rather than a deep violet, experiment with pastel shades for a monochromatic look that’s equal parts sweet and stylish.

Fashion Jobs – 5 Styles To Get You Rocking the Red Boot Trend

Wednesday, February 14th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaSNTF_RedBoots_Inspiration Image Street Style

A few months ago we talked the white boot trend which is still going strong even through the winter -especially as we look through the street style from Fashion Week season! But make room on your shoe rack because red boots are coming in just as hot. This bold colour choice can be a bit intimidating at first especially on a shoe but we guarantee the minute you put on a pair, you’ll be feeling like there are no boots like red ones!

 

There really isn’t anything that red boots don’t look good with; from leopard print and camo to denim and leather, many don’t realize that red can be treated just like a neutral when it comes to pairing it with other colours and prints. If you’re feeling brave and looking to score your first (or next) pair of red boots, check out these great styles we just cannot decide over.

STNF_Red Boots_Jeffrey Campbell Siren Bootie

On With A Bang
If you’re going to go red you might as well go big and these Jeffrey Campbell patent booties are it! These pretties have a high enough heel making them great for a night out with your girls but with its flared block style, it means they’re also perfect for running quick errands or a Saturday shopping trip to the mall. This style is a bit bold so they might not be for everyone, but for an edgier fashionista, these should be a dream!

SNTF_Red Boots_AnnieBing_Stevie Boot

The Must Have Booties
Have you been seeing pretty much everyone wearing the most adorable booties on the ‘gram? You’re probably swooning over the Stevie boots by Annie Bing and honestly we don’t blame you. These boots are totally having a moment and currently come in four colours, but we’re committed to these metallic red ones that just scream classic rock ‘n’ roll. Their slim but modest height heel make them a better choice for those dryer winter days and into the spring, or to wear inside at work.

STNF_Red Boots_Steven Madden Slammin Boot

Vixen Vibes
For those of you looking for the perfect boot for your next date night, look no further than these jaw dropping over the knee stiletto boots by Steve Madden. It’s a sleek sock boot style thanks to it’s stretchy fabric that will go perfectly with literally anything in your closet from your favourite little black dress, to a t-shirt and denim or a casual oversized sweater dress. Our advice for rocking these boots is keeping it clean and simple to allow the boots to be the focus of your outfit.

STNF_Red Boots_Isabel Marant Red Adenn Boots

Just To Say You Love You
Red is no doubt the colour of passion and love, so why not treat yourself with these amazing Isabel Marant calfskin leather booties like we’re dying to do?! We are obsessing over their unique shape thanks to the triangular heel and v shaped foot opening which is a huge trend right now in footwear. We’re dying to wear these with our favourite raw hemmed denim and go to biker jacket for a the perfect street chic look.

SNTF_Red Boots_Topshop Andi Ankle Boots

Flat, But Not Boring
You know we couldn’t have a boot list without including one flat style, and we think this Topshop pair fits right in with the rest! This boot really has it all from great western inspired buckles to a red snake print leather that is still somehow subtle enough to pair well with pretty much anything in your closet. And don’t think those buckles are just for show… they actually work so you can adjust the fit or be a little rebel and leave a couple open!

Fashion Jobs – 5 Pieces to Make Your Winter Looks Standout

Wednesday, January 31st, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canada

Main Image

Let’s face it – Canadian winters can be harsh. When it comes to winter dressing, it’s easy to fall into a pattern of chunky sweaters and jeans on a daily basis. While there’s nothing wrong with a comfy casual look, it can be nice to look for standout pieces that will add some personality to a cold-weather look. To combat the winter blues, here are 5 standout accessory pieces to create Insta-worthy winter outfits.

Beret

Wool Daisy Beret
Taking inspiration from the runways and street style alike, a fun beret can brighten up any winter outfit. This one from Urban Outfitters is embellished with daisies for added fun. With this chic beret, you’ll feel like spring is on is way in no time, even if it’s still -15°C outside.

Boots

Animal Print Ankle Boots
A classic animal print will never go out of style, so why not pick up a pair of booties that can be worn year-round? This versatile Zara pair would look equally great with a pair of dark jeans and a basic white tee as it would with a little black dress and an evening coat.

Scarf

Down Scarf
If you’re a fan of the warmth of a puffer coat but not the bulk that comes along with it, this is the perfect scarf for you. Hot pink adds just the right pop of colour to brighten up any winter outfit while keeping you warm and toasty at even the coldest temperatures.

Earrings

Fringed Flower Earrings
Statement earrings have been getting a lot of attention the past few seasons, and this trend is still going strong through 2018. More is definitely more with this pair of fringed earrings, so adding them to a simple black outfit is all that’s needed to amp up any winter look.

Backpack

Rope Jungle Backpack
A practical choice for anyone who carries a lot in their purse of choice, this backpack from Acne will be your new go-to accessory. A winter white makes a bold statement, along with the rope details and chunky zippered hardware.

Fashion Jobs – How to Pull Off Skirts During Winter

Monday, January 8th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaM Lindsay Photography

While in the midst of the coldest time of the year, we normally settle on thick and loose clothing and omit the cute and modish pieces we possess that we’re accustomed to rocking in the warmer seasons. One of these is the skirt, which is considered a staple but then gets shut out once the negative temperatures hit. As we have reiterated many times before, you do not need to be style conscious in the winter season as long as you know how to layer and coordinate with pieces! Although they may provide partial skin coverage, one must simply be finicky and ambitious enough when deciding to wear skirts in the cold weather. These are three tips on how to pull off skirts with confidence this frigid season!

Skirt2

1.) Choosing the Style
Ultimately, it does not matter what style of skirt you choose. What’s important is how you coordinate and harmonize the skirt with pieces to ensure a composed yet practical look. For short skirts, it is imperative to wear warm tights or long socks underneath due to inadequate coverage. For full-length skirts, you may still need to layer depending on where the skirt falls below the knee. Choose midi skirts if you want some versatility as they pair better with more go-to tops but still provide sufficient leg coverage.

Skirt3

2.) Pick Heavy-Duty Skirts
Apart from the style, the material of the skirt also makes a huge difference. Sensible fabrics in the wintertime for skirts include wool, cashmere, leather, velvet, and denim. Denim or knit skirts are suitable for casual looks while leather and velvet skirts are generally reserved for more formal occasions.

Skirt4

3.) Coordinate with the right pieces!
In correlation to tip 1, match your skirt with the right pieces to guarantee a balance between style and comfort. Short skirts may be worn with chunky knitwear or turtlenecks. For shoes, wear high-cut boots for proper leg coverage. For long skirts, it’d be more pleasing to coordinate your skirt with fitted tops rather than oversized wear. For shoes, low cuts are recommended. Midi skirts are more flexible and can be paired with various tops and shoes. Make sure to top your whole outfit off with a thick overcoat.

Friday, January 5th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaSTYLENINETOFIVE_5 STAPLE PIECES WORK WARDROBE_INSPIRATION_FIGTNY

One of the perks of growing up is you stop growing, so that means you can invest a little more in high-quality life-long pieces for your wardrobe. If you’re anything like us, as much as we live for fashion, 2018 is all about keeping a downsized yet functional closet especially when it comes to our workwear. But who says you have so sacrifice closet size for style? Not us! We’ve rounded up our 5 must-have pieces every style-conscious woman needs to keep her work wardrobe small yet stylish!

STYLENINETOFIVE_5 STAPLE PIECES WORK WARDROBE_BANANA REPUBLICThe Little Black Dress
Every style consultant, blogger and magazine will tell you that you must have a go-to little black dress in your closet, and trust us they were right! When it comes to a LBD for the office, keep your hemlines and cuts appropriate and we always recommend a more simple style that you can style multiple ways to get the most wear out of it. Accessories like necklaces, belts and brooches can really change the look of a dress!

 

Shop the Look: Banana Republic LIFE IN MOTION Wrinkle-Resistant Stretch Neoprene Sheath Dress, $160

The Black Blazer
Coming right behind the LBD is the black blazer. Everyone and we mean everyone needs one in their life. With so many different cuts and styles, there’s an option to suit every body type. For the office, we recommend a style that allows you to roll up your sleeves when it’s time to get down to business and comes with functional pockets.

 

Shop the Look: A.L.C Duke Jacket, $595, available at Nordstrom

STYLENINETOFIVE_5 STAPLE PIECES WORK WARDROBE_MCQ Grey Wool Long Cardigan

The Classic Cardigan
Cardigans are one of those pieces that never really goes out of style in our opinion. They’re a great way to tie together any outfit from a blouse and pencil skirt to a t-shirt and jeans on a casual day. Avoid materials that shed easily to keep you from constantly lint rolling, or getting fibers annoyingly caught in your lashes!

 

Shop the Look: McQ Alexander McQueen Grey Wool Long Cardigan, $330, available at ssense.com

STYLENINETOFIVE_5 STAPLE PIECES WORK WARDROBE_VINCE Stitch Front Pants

The Comfy Dress Pants
As much as you want to look good at the office, comfort should also be top of mind. We sit for hours or run around frantically getting things done, and that is why a comfortable dress pant is a great choice for your work wardrobe. Avoid loose, flimsy materials that may get caught on things like filing cabinets or ladders and just like a blazer, always look for a pair of dress pants with functional pockets.

 

Shop the Look: VINCE Stitch Front Strapping Pants, $375, available at shopbop.com

STYLENINETOFIVE_5 STAPLE PIECES WORK WARDROBE_ZARA DOUBLE BREASTED CHECKED BLAZER

The Printed Blazer
Because just one blazer isn’t enough in your workwear arsenal. We’re loving grey-plaid blazers that literally pair with everything from blue jeans to black slacks, but choose a colour and print that works for you. Avoid anything too loud if you’re workplace is more on the conservative side and try and find a pattern that is versatile so you can easily put it together with other pieces in your closet.

Fashion Jobs – How I Landed an Editorial Position with SHE Magazine

Thursday, January 4th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaSHE Magazine

2017 was a momentous year for me due to the emergence of numerous opportunities in my life. One of my biggest breaks was finally reaching the gates of the fashion industry through effective networking and obtaining significant knowledge in the editorial field. Thanks to Style Nine to Five, I had the utmost confidence to apply for different editorial positions and communicate with various fashion professionals in the city of Toronto. Eventually, I was fortunate to acquire a position in a prominent south Asian publication firm as an Editorial and Marketing Intern.

cover-232x300

The firm that I am currently a part of is the creator of the Canadian version of SHE, a bi-monthly south Asian magazine that covers various topics related to fashion, lifestyle, and entertainment. It has been in publication for fifty years and is one of the most widely read English language publications on the sub-continent.

 

Launched in 2012, the Canadian edition is popular amongst influential south Asian women between the ages of 20 and 40. My experience at SHE has been very rewarding and my typical day generally involves writing daily blogs on the website, endorsing and creating content on various social media platforms, as well as working on editorial spreads for the magazine issue(s). Another highly valuable opportunity is being sent out to various fashion events in Toronto, including fashion week and brand launch events to promote our magazine and of course, socialize with fashion elites!

 

So far, it has been a remarkable journey interning for SHE. My managing editor and co-interns are very supportive in nurturing my knowledge pool. Everyone is passionate about writing and creating fashion-related content, which considerably motivates me to work hard and exert more effort than I should! Style Nine to Five provided means of demonstrating my finest capabilities, which was successfully accomplished via writing blog posts for readers. Ultimately, the site was a crucial instrument to exhibit your “passion for fashion” in the real world and become recognized.  

 

Whether my current status in the field is for keeps or a stepping-stone, I am truly content with where I’m currently at because I know that there’s no other way to go but up. Surrounding yourself with peers who will push you up and bring out the best in you is certainly the fundamental element that will lead you to success in the world of fashion!

Fashion Jobs – Gift Guide for the Stylish Career Woman

Monday, December 11th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canadab96a5a5c90d3c0c1ae743605a9da68fe

Gift shopping always takes time and patience but it’s also a challenge in trying to find that one item that will put a huge smile on someone’s face. Finding a gift for that stylish career woman can take a little bit more thought and time but we are here to help and guide you through the process, and hopefully, shopping will be more fun this holiday season. Some might think the stylish career woman would enjoy a blouse or something work-related, but there are many gifts that she would love that are both exciting and useful in her busy life. Here are our top picks for your gal!

Screen Shot 2017-12-11 at 10.59.50 AM

The “IT” Clutch
We have seen it all over our Instagram and constantly debate with ourselves if we should buy it or not. Well, since we do love it but can’t seem to commit, this is the ultimate gift to give your fashion-forward lady this holiday season. The weave basket clutch will be a great staple to wear in the spring and summer to work events or on a casual weekend.

Screen Shot 2017-12-11 at 11.01.59 AM

On The Go
The stylish career woman is always on the go, from meetings uptown to the airport catching a flight to a business conference. She needs to look put together but still comfortable while trying to be at two places at once. This gorgeous Madewell scarf will be her go to wherever she goes. It’s a great travel piece to keep close by and will complement any outfit.

Wallet Free
The career woman’s bag is her holy grail; everything she needs is in it and it goes with her everywhere. She can’t imagine her life without her purse, but sometimes the thought of carrying the heavy luggage around is tiresome and exhausting. That’s why this stylish cardholder is a great gift. She can throw it in her bag or on weekends when she can go purse free or carry it when leaving the office to grab a coffee. Either way, it is a useful and practical gift she will love.

Screen Shot 2017-12-11 at 11.04.10 AM

Face Refresher
Since we already know our stylish career gal is always on the go and does the most she can in her day, she will perhaps need a mid-day refresher.  A woman often brings a few cosmetics with her just in case, but sometimes having your makeup all over your bag is frustrating. That’s why this all in one palette is super chic and a must have for a busy woman.

Screen Shot 2017-12-11 at 11.05.47 AM

Hand Fashion
With the winter season brings winter accessories, and our stylish woman loves a great pair of gloves to go with her chic outerwear pieces. These leather gloves are feminine and sophisticated, yet edgy with the pleated trim and pearl studs to take her from the office to her evening business dinner.
