Fashion Jobs – The New Classic

Wednesday, July 29th, 2015

ST95-ADS

A good pair of sneakers is a completely classic staple that can be paired with virtually any outfit. Never before have we seen such a sneaker frenzy, especially in the world of high fashion. I noticed a lot of bloggers wearing sneakers with full skirts and more formal looks at fashion weeks all over the world this year, which I love! This comfortable style can dress down a formal look, or be paired with jeans and a sweater for a cozy and cute style. I also love to make my outfits more interesting by wearing sneakers- for example, I’ll pair my Reebok Running Sneakers with a little black dress for a night out. I love the contrast and think it makes an outfit so much more exciting!

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 – The New Way to Wear Pinstripes

Monday, July 27th, 2015

ST95-ADS

Pinstripes have always been a staple in dressing for the business world. However, if not careful, pinstripes can outdate your outfit. The modern way women are wearing pinstripes is either very thin or thick. Taking pinstripes to an extreme gives a refreshing take on this classic look. And it doesn’t hurt that a pinstripe pattern gives you that extra appearance in length.

Fashion Jobs – How To Wear the Little White Dress For the Weekend, Office and Night Out

Sunday, July 26th, 2015

ST95-ADSWhiteDress_Inspiration

So, your little black dress obsessed has gone a little out of control and you have found yourself owning several variations of the same LBD number. What are you to do now? Well, look no further than the little white dress to fulfill all of your dress needs for the summer months. The colour white is able maintain cohesiveness when mixed with both neutral shades and pops of colour. Best of all, the little white dress seamlessly transfers from the office to a night-out and all the way to the weekend. By playing with unique accessories and staple styling tactics, the same white dress will be appropriate for any and all occasions.

For the office, add a structured blazer over-top matched with the same colour of shoes. The colour-blocking styling trick never fails to have you looking put together. Shoes that are suitable for the office tend to be closed-toe, classic, and minimalistic. These 3.1 Phillip Lim t-strap pumps will have you covered across the board.

To transfer this look into a night-out outfit, switch out your conservative pumps for a ‘barely there’ nude heel. Add a bright-coloured statement necklace and/or other jewelry and you are set.

Lastly, when taking a weekend stroll down the strip for some shopping or lunch with friends, slip on a pair of backless flats. To keep your face out of the sun (and hey, maybe if the night-out escalated quickly), throw on an over-sized floppy hat.

No matter the time of day or type of outing, your LWD will cover all of the bases.

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 – How To: Wear Animal Print to the Office

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015

ST95-ADSAnimalPrint_Inspiration

 

Animal print is a major trend both on and off the runway this season. It gives fashionistas an edgy look, while still remaining in the neutral colour family. While it seem easy to throw on a leopard print overcoat on a cool Summer day, it may not be as easy to translate this trend into your typical office outfits. By incorporating muted accents of animal print in cardigans, belts, watch bands, and pumps, you instantly spice up your outfit and intrigue each colleague with your daring pattern choices. If you love to demonstrate an edgy vibe whilst still maintaining an office appropriate look, animal print will have you covered. It is also a plus to be able to incorporate runway trends into the office to ensure that you’re office wear translates from season to season.

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 – Summer of Shoulders

Wednesday, July 15th, 2015

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!

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.
