Allbirds Shoes Opens Queen Street Pop-Up
San Francisco based Allbirds, which claims to be the world’s most comfortable shoes, has opened up a temporary retail space in Toronto’s fashionable “West Queen West” area. After launching their Canadian e-tail in March and hosting two pop-ups in Nordstrom in Vancouver and Toronto earlier this year, the new space is being used as a test to determine if the company’s next move will be to place permanent brick-and-mortar locations in Canada. Founded in 2014 by former professional soccer player Tim Brown and biotech engineer and renewable materials expert, Joey Zwillinger, Allbirds is formed on the philosophy of using natural materials, and an “ongoing mantra to create better things in a better way.”

 

Italian Fashion Exhibit Unveiled in Toronto
Yorkville Village is paying tribute to Italian Heritage Month with a new exhibit called “60 Years Made in Italy” portraying six decades of Italian fashion. You will find pieces from prestigious and staple Italian fashion houses such as Prada, Gucci, Fendi, Valentino, and Moschino. The exhibit is a stroll through Italian fashion history, curator Alessia Tota says, “The items that are on display come from various archival and private collections, making this exhibit truly one-of-a-kind”. Take a look through gowns (some very recognizable!), suits, jewellery and shoes from today until July 3rd.

 

Vancouver Welcomes First Jimmy Choo Standalone
Vancouver’s Alberni Street is joined by yet another luxury retailer as Jimmy Choo opens its first standalone in Greater Vancouver. The 1,549 square foot space is Canada’s second Jimmy Choo location, the first in Toronto’s Yorkdale Shopping Centre. Many designer stores have opened standalone locations in the downtown core in Vancouver in the last few years such as Off-White, Saint Laurent, and Moncler.

 

Serena Williams Launches Clothing Line
As if winning professional tennis matches and giving birth to a beautiful daughter weren’t accomplishments enough, Serena Williams is launching a fashion collection of sportswear and evening wear. The best part? Every piece is under $250! The collection includes denim, tees, dresses, jackets, and underwear with a sporty/sexy edge. Twelve pieces were debuted yesterday and will be added to with more releases throughout the summer and fall. You can find the collection on www.serenawilliams.com.

Fashion Jobs – 5 Ways to Break Out of Your Workplace Slump

Wednesday, May 30th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canada

When monotony settles in and the warmer weather has you daydreaming about being anywhere but the office, you might be feeling just a little restless at work. It happens to the best of us, but a workplace slump is nothing you can’t overcome. I’ve put together a list of ideas to combat this spring fever and keep you loving the job you’re in.

 

Seek Out More Responsibilities
Hear me out, more responsibilities CAN be a good thing! If there’s an area of the business that you’re interested in learning more about or would like to add into your existing role, the best thing you can do is voice your interest to your superiors. It benefits everyone since you’ll be learning a new skill and keeping your work life interesting, while also showing initiative by sharing your desire to grow professionally.

 

Get to Know Your Team
If you don’t normally spend much time outside the water cooler chatting with coworkers, now’s the perfect time to give it a try. Find a teammate that you’d be interested in getting to know better and ask them to join you to grab a coffee or lunch together. You may just find a new work bestie in the process, and at the very least you’ll build a better working relationship.

 

Start a Club
If your workplace is large enough to accommodate different clubs or groups, why not consider starting your own? A book club, a knitting circle, or a game night is a great way to get to know your coworkers outside of a professional environment and can help break up the work week by giving you something fun to look forward to.

 

Get Charitable
Volunteering as a group can be a really rewarding way to do some team bonding at work. Choose a charity that’s near to your heart, and find a way to get involved as a team. Whether it’s through a volunteer day or by fundraising, finding a way to come together and make a difference is an easy way to switch things up at work.

 

Start Job-Searching
When all else fails and you’re still feeling like you’re in a workplace slump, there’s no harm in starting to look for a new position. Maybe you’ve outgrown your role and are ready for a change, or you’re just not entirely happy in your current work situation. No matter what the cause is, jump-starting your career search is a great way to stay energized and focused on the job at hand.

Fashion Jobs – Dressing for Interviews: Spring/Summer Edition

Friday, May 25th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaCL-0417-S-SpringFashion-F-Skirts-846114-3

When prepping for an interview your mind typically goes to “what am I going to wear?” We are lucky in the fashion industry where we get to be flexible with our wardrobe choices.  You often want to wear something that will make you stand out and be remembered amongst the other candidates. We’re not directed by a dress code so it can cause confusion between standing out while looking fashionable, and what is still appropriate for a professional interview. This confusion might be heightened during the Spring/Summer seasons when the weather becomes warmer and you tend to shed some layers and wear cooler clothing.  Below I have broken down what to wear during interviews and things to avoid.

 

What to Wear

399c06d82a49fed0b6b769445fc79ab2

Romper
Rompers are one of the most versatile pieces you could have in your wardrobe. They’re perfect for a casual outing, night out, and of course, interviews!  Not only are they super trendy but they will keep you comfortable and cool. Adding some cute pumps and jewellery you can make this outfit into your fashion business card.

5cf2f41665cdd63960a2d6e3a6dc12bf

Pencil Skirt and Blouse
The pencil skirt is an office staple, again it’s very versatile because you can wear the same skirt in the fall and spring.  Pair it with a light fabric blouse and tuck it in to get the ultimate professional look. Style it with some heels and accessories and you got a “I mean business” look.  

9b620ff479cbe8ebec5994e98f57ad79

High Waisted Pants
Another super trendy business look is high waisted pants.  These pants come in lightweight fabrics, in either straight or bootcut so you can play around with different styles. Pick up some coloured or patterned ones to give a nice spring look, and pair it with either a plain t-shirt or blouse.

spring-office-outfits-25

Flowy Skirt
This look is similar to the pencil skirt however, it is a more comfortable option as it doesn’t cling to your body.  This skirt flows so you can stay cool while still maintaining a professional image.

Things to Avoid

Now that we’ve given you outfit options for your interview here are things to avoid.  Firstly, don’t ever look like you just came from the beach with your big tote bag, burnt face, and sweaty odour.  Stay away from wearing any kind of shorts or mini skirts, as they don’t give you a professional image. Wearing a sleeveless blouse or dress is okay during the warmer weather, but stay away from wearing tops with spaghetti straps or anything that shows your midriff.

Fashion Jobs – Fashion News Recap

Monday, May 7th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canadafac3ce79ca5a114f6fcb7cb8a0651dde

Nordstrom Rack Canadian Flagship Revealed
The new Nordstrom Rack store opened Thursday morning in Toronto’s popular shopping area, Bloor Street. The beautiful glass exterior floods the two-story off-price department store with ample natural light over racks and racks of neatly placed (for now!) products. At street level, you’ll find home goods and accessories, head upstairs for footwear and fashion from a selection of designer brands and Nordstrom house brand favourites. Nordstrom Rack carries product made specifically for Rack stores as well as discounted items from full-line Nordstrom stores. The new, almost 40,000 square foot space will become a go-to location for Toronto shoppers, as this particular Rack location is stocked with items from luxury brands such as Chloé, Stella McCartney, KenzoProenza Schouler and Balenciaga.

 

SSENSE Opens in Montreal
The unique new SSENSE store has opened on 418 Saint-Sulpice in Old Montreal. A futuristic retail space spans across five levels in an old heritage building. Two of the levels will be dedicated to a personal shopping system that integrates online with an in-store customer experience – clothing that you pick when booking the appointment becomes available within 24-hours. But this new retail concept acts as more than a personal shopping centre. The remaining three floors will serve as a “cultural space” to host events, activities and projects from popular designers and brands such as Virgil Abloh and Moncler and even includes a glass ceiling café on the top floor.

 

Six Hundred Four Opens Virtual Reality “Sneaker Gallery”
The limited edition, Gastown shoe brand, Six Hundred Four commissions artists to create pieces that are then digitally printed on 604 numbered pairs of shoes. They’re taking their unique “sneaker gallery”, located on 151 Cambie Street to a new level by incorporating virtual reality. The Six Hundred Four Virtual Gallery allows you to browse, admire the art and shop the shoes of the sneaker gallery all online as if you were strolling through the store itself.

 

Virgil Abloh x IKEA
Imagine one of your favourite designers creating home goods that you have no problem affording (but that you still may have to build yourself)? The newly appointed Louis Vuitton Men’s designer, Virgil Abloh has collaborated with IKEA to create furniture and home accessories targeted to students and millennials. The goal is to design pieces that add style and flare to things we use in our homes or dorm rooms every day. Abloh gave a sneak peek on a Youtube live stream, showing prototypes of products that will still be perfected over the next few weeks until the collaboration is released this summer. If the prototypes are just a base to what we can expect from the collection, it’s safe to say our apartments will be deserving a trip to IKEA.

Fashion Jobs – Spring Trench Coat Picks

Friday, May 4th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaSNTF_Spring Trench Coat Picks_Inspiration LisaDNYC

One of our favourite pieces for spring has to be the trench coat. This classic spring jacket is effortless and chic yet can be worn casually making it extremely versatile. Take your trench from the office to weekend brunch and everything in between and we guarantee you can’t go wrong! Although we mostly think of gloomy weather and rain boots, trench coats are also great on those sunny yet windy days with a pair of flats or sneakers.

 

However you like to wear your trench coat, the only piece of advice we have is you totally need one in your wardrobe. Not sure where to start with all the options out there?! Take our advice and check out these great spring trench coat picks!

SNTF_Spring Trench Coats_Le Chateau

Clean Lines
This shorter take on this classic look is a perfect pick for spring! We love the detailed outline that frames the jacket’s cut perfectly. Also available in black, this jacket is one of many styles available at Le Chateau at reasonable prices!

SNTF_Spring Trench Coats_Zara

Spring, Check!
Leave it to Zara to take seasonal trends and pair it perfectly and effortlessly with classic pieces, like this grey checkered trench coat. Going perfectly with everything from trousers to denim, this short-cut trench features a detachable hood making it perfect for all types of spring weather!

SNTF_Spring Trench Coats_Only

The OG
It’s fun to play with trends but sometimes you need to stick to more timeless choices, and this classic trench from ONLY is totally it! This jacket has all the classic components of a trench from a belted waist, double-breasted closure and pockets yet is made from a lighter material giving it a great flow and making it wearable during warmer temperatures.

SNTF_Spring Trench Coats_Club Monaco

Atypical Shade
Looking for something a little less classic, yet still timeless enough to stick it out in your wardrobe for years to come? This dark teal option from Club Monaco might just be for you! Although the style is a little more on the Draper Jacket side, it still has all the classic Trench components from a belted waist to a strong lapel.

All Black
A favourite colour of most fashionistas, we, of course, had to include a black trench coat on our list! This Kate Spade NY trench is the idealistic trench from its double-breasted cut to the belted waist and cuffs. The jacket also comes in the classic beige and also a dusty rose, but there’s something edgy and fun about this black version that we just can’t get enough of!

Fashion Jobs – Spring Denim Updates

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaMain Image

 

I always find that as the days get longer and the temperatures start to rise, my fashion game takes a big step up. Gone are the days of bulky puffer jackets, winter boots and shapeless sweaters. Sure they’re cozy, but I’ll be the first to admit that my fashion sense definitely takes a hit throughout the long cold winter. Come springtime, I’m ready for fun colours, lighter layers, and fresh patterns.

 

I’m a denim girl through and through, and can never have too many good pairs of jeans. Denim is everywhere right now too, meaning I don’t just have to confine my love to pants anymore either! I’ve selected my seven favourite denim trends for spring 2018, so read on and let us know which styles you’re most looking forward to rocking.

1

Overalls
Spotted on celebs like Selena Gomez, Kate Bosworth, and even Chris Pine, this ’90s throwback is proving that adults everywhere can still pull off overalls. Style them with a crop top for a fun weekend outing, or with a crisp button-down for a more polished look.

2

Canadian Tuxedo
For a fun take on the denim on denim Canadian tuxedo, an easy spring update is to swap out your jeans for a denim skirt. A vintage-inspired wash like in the image above is perfect for a casual day, but a darker wash would easily make this trend appropriate for a girls’ night or a casual office environment.

3

Glam Denim
This season you’ll find denim that’s embroidered, printed, covered with crystals – or all three at once! This denim update is sure to add some drama to any outfit, especially when done head to toe like in Liz Trinnear’s look seen above. Sometimes, more really is more.

4

Oversized Jackets
As if you needed another reason to borrow from the boys, this slouchy, updated denim jacket is just the excuse to sift through your dad’s or boyfriend’s wardrobe. An easy, lived-in denim jacket truly goes with everything this spring, from a feminine sundress to an athleisure inspired track bottom.

5

Indigo
This might be my favourite spring denim update just because of its sheer simplicity. A good dark wash with no distressing, patchwork or elaborate fading techniques feels really fresh this season because it is so classic. There’s a reason indigo keeps coming back after all!

6

Wide legs
If you still haven’t jumped on the wide leg bandwagon just yet, this is the season to give it a shot. I’ve been a fan for a while now, and haven’t gone back to my skinnies yet. The wide leg is a great fit for comfort and style, and for days when you just need a change from a standard slim leg.

7

Pastels
Pastels for spring may not be “groundbreaking” as they say, but it’s a nice change of pace to classic blue or black denim. Swap out your go-to pair of jeans and try out a coloured version in a style that you know and love. You’ll feel fresher and ready for spring in no time!

 The Five Floral Pieces You Need this Spring
A wise woman once said, “Florals for spring? Ground-breaking.” Yet each year, florals continue to be one of the hottest patterns for spring both on the catwalk and in-store. Florals can brighten any outfit and add a unique twist on how you style them. This pattern should not just be seen as the go-to because of the season, but also as a pattern that can be transitioned into your wardrobe year-round.
