Inspirational Image

It might not quite be summer, but it’s definitely starting to feel spring-ish outside. When it comes to transitioning between seasons, it can be quite confusing trying to decide not only what to wear but also what’s office appropriate. To help make the seasonal transition that much smoother, here are a few chic ideas on how to refresh your workwear this spring.

1. White Mules

2. Mango Mules

Mules + Slides

Say au revoir to your normal black pumps and swap them for a pair of chic mules or slides. This season, it comes as no surprise that these shoes are the must-have trend for fashionistas everywhere and after slipping on a pair, we guarantee they’ll be yours, too. If you want to try this trend but don’t want to spend the dough, then fear not, you can pick up something very similar from one of your local high street stores, like these adorable slides from Mango.

3. Chinos and slides

4. H&M Trousers


Step out of your comfort zone and say goodbye to those dreary grey and black work trousers. Swap your predictable workwear for a pair of hip chinos, a crisp white blouse and some cute slides for a fashionista-approved look. Not sure where to shop for on-trend chinos? H&M is currently killing the chino trend this spring and at prices that can’t be beaten.

5. Statement Earrings 6. Earrings

Statement Earrings

The perfect way to freshen up a wardrobe is to add some statement earrings to your accessories arsenal. And luckily for you, there are so many affordable places where you can stock up on statement earrings. Need Supply offers a wide selection of statement accessories with designers like Young Frankk and J Hannah on their site. 

Even if you’re wearing your usual workwear, and don’t necessarily want to invest in any new clothes, by simply adding bold jewellery to your look will immediately add an element of sophistication.

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.


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.



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.


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


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.


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.

Fashion Jobs – The 3 Biggest Patterns of the Season

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canada


Add some life to your closet this spring, by incorporating an assortment of printed pieces.

Gingham, Stripes and Floral prints are some of the biggest patterns we’re seeing this season, and they’re coming in the form of dresses, shirts, trousers, denim and so much more. While these three prints made a loud statement on the runway, they’ll easily transfer into your wardrobe.

Screen shot 2017-05-02 at 11.14.39 AM

2. Floral Blouse 3. Floral culottes


In true spring fashion, every girl needs some floral prints in her wardrobe. If you’re looking for something subtle, opt for a floral bag or accessories – like a silk neck scarf or a printed tote bag. This will allow you to add a touch of femininity to your work wear without being too bold.

You can also add a floral top to your work wardrobe, as it’s the perfect swap for a regular work blouse.

If you’re feeling brave this spring and your workplace has a more flexible dress code, we recommend rocking head to toe floral. Style print-on-print items for a bold look or paired with a black blazer and heels for a more traditional take.

4. Gingham Trousers

6. Gingham Slides


Gingham is a fun and playful pattern that can easily be incorporated into you office wear. To make your outfit more on the playful side chose something with frills or extra detailing like the fabulous pants below.

If you’re looking for a more sophisticated look, we recommend wearing a structured gingham printed jacket to work. The gingham print will give your outfit a feminine and playful dose touch.

If your style is more subtle and you prefer staying out of the fashion spotlight, try on a pair of gingham printed flats or mules this spring. This is a great way to still try out the eye-catching print without going too over the top.

7. Striped Pants 8. Striped Dress 9. Striped Jump suit


Stripes have always played a major role in office wear in the form of pinstriped suits, but this season if you’re feeling bold, ditch the traditional thin stripes and add some bigger eye-catching stripes to your work wear.

If you prefer dresses over pants, embrace the warmer weather and rock an on-trend dress, This season, we can’t get enough of deconstructed approach to traditional work wear and are eyeing up this beautiful fusion of white work shirt, meets classic oxford. Style with a traditional blazer for the day and then rock it on its own at night.

Stripes are everywhere this spring and are definitely worthy of taking up some space in your closet. Stripes are easily the most wearable trend of the season and are super easy to style and are transitional from day to night when styled with the right accessories.

Fashion Jobs – How to Wear This Season’s Biggest Trends to Work

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaInspirational ImageWell fashionistas, we’re happy to announce that it officially feels like spring! And if the warmer weather isn’t something to be happy about, the season’s biggest trends most certainly are. While some of these trends are bold and daring, this post will show you how to incorporate them into your office wear so you can make a statement for all the right reasons.

1.Gingahm Coat - Pinterest


This is a feminine trend will be seeing everywhere come summer.

To get away with wearing it to the office, try pairing a gingham coat with a wide black belt. Going for après work cocktails with your coworkers? Add a bit of an edge and wear it off the shoulders and pair with a bright bag.

2. Deconstructed Classics

Deconstructed Classics

While we’ve seen raw hems and deconstructed jeans everywhere these past few months, this season is all about the deconstructed, edgy shirts. Designers have revamped the button-down by shifting collars, altering sleeves, and taking classic silhouette to an almost unrecognizable territory. This spring, add some quirkiness to your workwear by swapping out your basic blouse for an interesting take on an old classic.


Oversized Blazer

One trend we’re happy to see back in rotation is the ‘80s inspired oversized blazer. We love this trend because it’s extremely versatile and can be worn to work and styled with your favourite workwear staples, but also worn over a faux leather skirt or an LBD and stiletto heels for a night on the town. This season, try this smart but casual trend, by layering an oversized blazer over a white blouse or t-shirt. If you’re planning on going out for drinks after a long workday, vamp up your look with a bold lip and pointed heels.

4.Need Supply - Bag

Micro Bags

If one thing’s for certain, street style stars have dubbed the micro bag as the ‘it’ bag of the season. Our favourite trendsetters like Olivia Palermo and Aimee Song can be seen rocking these cute micro bags, and while they can’t necessarily fit a laptop let alone any other workday essential, we have to say, micro bags are here to stay.

Bold Seasonal Prints

From graphic, oversized, and running in every other direction, this seasons prints are breaking all the rules. While your first instinct is to keep your dress code safe, we fully encourage incorporating a variety of seasonal prints into your traditional work wear.

If you work in a more casual office environment, you can afford to play around with bigger and bolder prints. If you’re not able to do that, then stick with subtle colours and oversized oxfords.

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canada

Screen shot 2017-04-27 at 12.20.12 PM

We all try to find innovative ways to display our personal sense of style at the workplace while still staying within the boundaries of appropriate office attire. It can be difficult in corporate and conservative spaces, but what if there was an accessory that can change the way we express our own individual style?

With sunglass season arriving and being on the hunt for our next statement specs, why not try the growing trend of the non- prescription optical frame? This trend has recently started to pick up and everyone from celebrities to street wear bloggers can be seen rocking these beauties.

It’s an edgy yet sophisticated way to add flair to your office attire at an affordable cost allowing you to switch up your style for every occasion. While we usually depend on the classics: black, gray, brown, try opting them out for colour, metal wired, and plastic frames to make a statement at the office. Here are five must-have styles you should consider when exploring this trend.

Screen shot 2017-04-27 at 12.23.33 PM

1. Rectangular

If you’re just starting to play with your optical accessories, trying a simple frame in a different color is a great way to adjust and start experimenting. The rectangular frame is classic and sophisticated, and a great way to ease into trendy eyewear.

Screen shot 2017-04-27 at 12.25.59 PM

2. The Cat Eye

From work to after hours, the cat eye is a great choice for women working in a business setting. They emphasize professionalism while looking smart and mysterious for after work leisure.

Screen shot 2017-04-27 at 12.31.46 PM

3. Round Frames

These are a perfect choice for the woman who embraces change and enjoys switching up her style. The round eyeglass frames guarantee you will not go unnoticed, as they are a fun and versatile for the creative woman.

Screen shot 2017-04-27 at 12.32.52 PM

4. Oversized

Clean, simple, but definitely a showstopper. The oversized rounded rectangle frame is an elegant look to add to your work wardrobe, and no matter what color you choose guarantee it will elevate your attire and your day at the office.

Screen shot 2017-04-27 at 12.33.42 PM

5. Aviator

The metal rim aviator eyeglasses are delicate and also give off a laid back vibe. They are simple, straight to the point, and definitely an indoor frame. Perfect for the girl who is subtle and cool yet still enjoys standing out from the crowd.

Fashion Jobs – Five Canadian Designers to Watch in 2017

Monday, April 17th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaInpsirational Image

With not one, but three fashion weeks, and a fourth to come to Yorkville later this fall, it’s not hard to see that Toronto, and Canada, is flooding with talent. Fashion, in particular, is a category where the city strives. And with a wealth of burgeoning designers on the cusp of something spectacular, it wasn’t easy narrowing down a list to just five of our nation’s brightest talents. But there are a handful that have risen above in a notoriously tough industry, earning them titles of ones to watch. In no particular order, here are the five Canadian designers to keep an eye on in 2017…

1. Markoo


While the brand itself is three years old, designers Mona Koochek and Tania Martins have taken a path less traveled on the road to international success. Since their fruition, the duo has been named new emerging talent by Women’s Wear Daily, a new label to watch by Harper’s Bazaar, and designers to know by Refinery29. While in the past they’ve steered clear of Toronto Fashion Week, they recently showed at The Collections’ reimagined version of event, Re\Set. Showing amongst heavy hitters like Forbes’ ‘30 under 30’ Beaufille and Vogue recognized Sid Neigum, the setting was true to form for Markoo’s cool-girl designs and streetwise staples.

2. Hendrixroe


Electric designer Jordan Erin McKay (JEM) has been making waves on the Toronto fashion scene since launching her menswear and womenswear collections at TOM* and TW-FW. With designs that bridge vintage rock n’ roll and old Hollywood glamour, JEM’s collections are approachable and fun, oozing a Canadian cool that is sure to put HENDRIXROE on the map for 2017.

3. Vejas


With over 20k followers on Instagram, calling Vejas Kruszewski emerging talent seems like an oxymoron. In 2016, the then 19-year-old Canadian made headlines internationally after earning an LVMH prize, an award that was decided upon by a panel of designers that included lauded names like Nicolas Ghesquière, Phoebe Philo, Riccardo Tisci, Karl Lagerfeld, and more. Most recently, the largely self-taught designer showcased his Fall 2017 collection in Paris, experimenting with silhouettes and workwear staples. This young gun is giving Canadian fashion the global attention it deserves.

4. Joseph-tassoni

Joseph Tassoni

The Montreal-born Ryerson grad isn’t exactly a newcomer to Canadian fashion. He’s held many notable roles, including the title of Creative Director at Canadian heritage brand Laparka. But most recently, he set foot on his own to launch his inaugural namesake outerwear collection at TW-FW. With a collection titled Queen of the North, the designer fused fashion with function, incorporating a wide range of textiles and colours to showcase his wealth of technical design knowledge. The collection has since garnered global attention from publications like Vogue Italia.

5. Jordana-seguin


Born and raised in the small town of Squamish, British Columbia, not much else is known about up-and-comer Jordana Séguin. The designer made her debut at Vancouver Fashion Week a few years back, showing much promise as emerging talent. And while the designer’s imprint is small, with not even as much as a website to showcase her designs, it is mighty. Just recently, the young Canadian made her Toronto debut in the Emergence by Toronto Film School’s Toronto Women’s Fashion Week presentation, shining a spotlight on her playful designs and namesake label.

Fashion Jobs – The 7 Biggest Street Style Trends So Far This Year

Tuesday, April 11th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaLFW-London_Fashion_Week_Fall_16-Street_Style-Collage_Vintage-adenorah-1

It might only be April, but fashionistas have already taken to the streets to show off 2017’s most covetable fashion trends. And while there are plenty of trends still taking off; we’ve been following our favourite bloggers, stylists and fashionistas closely to round up this year’s biggest trends (so far).

From vintage ‘mom’ jeans to embroidered bomber jackets, these are the trends that the fashion world just can’t get enough of.

1. Bomber Jacket

The Bomber Jacket

First and foremost, the bomber jacket has been a highly covetable trend for the past year, and this year we’re thrilled to see it stick around. The bomber jacket is the easily the new denim jacket and fashion’s biggest names can be seen rocking this trend from day to night. We can’t get enough of this Gucci embroidered bomber, as it can easily be your go-to attire when you’re running your errands or going for brunch with the girls. When rocking a bomber this season, make sure to pair it with a logo tee and a pair of high-waisted mom jeans for the ultimate model off duty look. And remember, colours that mesh well together, stay together.

2. Wide Leg Trousers

Wide-Leg Trousers

While the airy wide pant leg was undeniably cool in the winter when worn with a pair of Vans skate shoes and a black turtleneck, this style of pants are definitely more spring approved. If one thing’s for certain, stripes are a huge trend this year and will pair perfectly with a tucked in blouse with statement sleeves, and will leave you stepping into spring in the right direction.

3.Statement Heels

The Updated Statement Heel

From catwalks to the real life, updated takes on classic heels have been all the rage. We’re currently eyeing up a pair of these 90’s throwback heels, which are currently the talk of the season to fashion lovers everywhere. Pair these babies with a distressed hem jean, with a pair of fishnets underneath and an oversized bomber for a fashion blogger-approved look.

4. Distressed Denim

Denim Wonder

Can we just take a second to appreciate our current favourite denim trend this year — the ‘mom’ jean. While denim trends never really seem to last long, this is one trend we can definitely get behind. The mom jean

gives off a cool and classic with a slight vintage vibe, and when styled accordingly they are perfect for everyday wear. Try pairing them with a graphic tee or with a tucked in button up blouse.

5. Cross-body bag

The Updated Cross-Body Bag

Gone are the days of seeing women carrying over-sized totes and purses and instead we’ve been seeing the fashion world’s most notable sporting more delicate and smaller cross-body bags. From strong shapes to capacious handles, this season’s most covetable bag is anything but ordinary. We can’t get enough of this leather satchel from Ted Baker as it’s a must-have for the working woman on the go.  While the strap and handle are convenient, the pearl and crystal embellishment on the buckle seriously elevates this otherwise minimal number.

6. Striped Blouse

Striped Blouse

From layered over turtlenecks to worn solo off the shoulder to statement bell sleeves, striped blouses of all cuts and sizes have been all the rage this year and still are moving into spring. The key to this trend is the more deconstructed the better.

7. Flat Mules

Flat Mules

This year has certainly seen the rise of the flat mule trend. The fun thing about these shoes is that they come in all heights and textures, and they ultra chic on everyone. We recommend opting for a more colourful pair, as they will make your ever day outfits feel instantly luxe.
