Fashion Jobs – Cardigans

Friday, April 17th, 2015

 Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs

Basic Cardigan

Cardigan sweaters don’t always get the pretty reputation that they should.  Often seen as reserved, they made the perfect staple in the wardrobe of Charlotte York from Sex and the City.  While she may have been prim and proper and a high-bred of New York City, basic cardigan sweaters do not always have to be as refined as her and as refined as her life.

The Charlotte Way Products

There is nothing basic about the basic cardigan, so for a modern and youthful flair, wear your cardigan:

 

• with boyfriend jeans for the feminine and masculine combo

• wrapped around your neck wearing a slinky silk top and culottes, for that little bit of refinery but mostly for that emergency layer for summer nights out

• draped over your shoulders in a summer’s dress

• fitted with a pencil skirt for a sleek silhouette or with a flared skirt to even out the proportions.

• tucked it into high waisted pants

Whether you are on a tight budget or just looking to strategically invest in clothing staples, pieces that can seamlessly transition from day to evening are always a good idea.  Living in a busy city can result in little time for wardrobe changes from the office to a night out. In order to solve this problem, having transitional pieces make life a lot easier (and stylish) too!

According to Kenneth Cole, “The average woman falls in love seven times a year. Only six are with shoes.” Here are six trends to prove that he is unmistakably correct.

 

With these six trends on our feet this season, everywhere we go will turn into a catwalk.

After shivering through a frigid and seemingly never ending winter on the East Coast, we have at last found ourselves in April. Although it may not feel like spring just yet, there is nothing better than spring and summer shoe trends to give us something to look forward to until we can expose our feet without any looks suggesting, “She must be freezing in those.”

Fashion Jobs – Spring Fashion 2015

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs

Hello, Spring! It’s been a while.
Although, it doesn’t entirely feel like Spring because it’s still a little chilly. I can definitely deal with it because it’s far better than the bitter cold; in the meantime, I’ve been distracting myself with a lot of online shopping to transition into the season.

 

I’ve compiled a short-and-sweet list of this seasons’s must-haves that are suitable for chilly to warm weather without the typical floral patterns. The key here is to layer and remove pieces accordingly!

1

Just a Jean Jacket


A classic. Pair it with (almost) anything in your closet and you’re already looking springtime fresh since it’s seriously time to ditch your parka. Gap Denim Jacket, $69.95 CAD

 

2

A Little Fancier


If you want to top off your outfit with something a little less casual, a bright, textured and lightweight jacket will definitely do the trick. Zara Jacket, $99.90 CAD

3

Wrap It Up


Scarves are perfect for Spring – especially in the mornings when it’s a bit chiller. The best thing about Aritzia’s blanket scarves are that they’re versatile enough to be styled in that regard or as a cape. Aritzia Scarf, $75 CAD

4

Metallic Kicks

A pair of pointed oxfords can instantly add sophistication to any outfit and a silver pair screams Spring. Aldo Shoes, $100 CAD

We all know that fashion runs in cycles, but sometimes there are certain trends that come back and not only surprise us, but also leave us wondering if we could possibly “go there” again.

 

 

Why are these so great that they’ve crept back into stores? They literally will help get you through any kind of weather and can be worn in endless different ways.  Pretty much every retailer offers some version of this pant, whether it’s a funky print, a soft leather or thick tweed. If you have plans to paint the town red on Saturday night, or want a professional work outfit on a chilly Monday morning, culottes can be found in any material, length and style to cater to specific occasions.

 

Welcome back.

 

Product Info:

1. Love Culottes CAD $77

2. River Island US $30

3. ASOS, CAD $75.32

4. Zara CAD $ 49.90

5. Aritzia CAD $110

Fashion Jobs – Transitioning Your Knits

Tuesday, March 24th, 2015

Style Nine to Five - fashion jobsTYK-Photo

 

 

It is right about now, in this month of March, where the warmish temperatures call on a time of transition.  Winter had us fall in love once again with chunky knits and while spring has not yet sprung, it is springing and we no longer need excessive sweaters.  Like in lessons of love, if something no longer serves you, you should set it free.  It is time to let go of our chubby sweaters and embrace seasonal appropriate versions of the cozy sweaters that once were.  You can do this by opting for light weight fabrics, open knits, wider necklines and short sleeves or slight crop tops.  All of these options let go of the winter heat and let in a little bit of that long overdue spring breeze.

 

Product Info: 

Steffen Schraut Essential Turtleneck Sweater, £105.00, available at Stylebop.com

Comfort Zone Sweater, US $38.99, available at Ruche

Beulah Dorah Waffle Knit Sweater, $60.30, available at Nasty Gal

High Neck Sleeveless Split Apricot Sweater, US $27.33, available at Romwe

Pink Long Sleeve Knit Sweater, US $34.99, available at Walk Trendy

MSGM Cropped Sweater, $268.93, available at Farfetch

Black V-Neck Color Block Sweater, US $26.99, available at Walk Trendy
