Fashion Jobs – How to Pull Off a Slip Dress During Winter

Tuesday, November 14th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canadasd1

 

Like the pyjama top, the slip dress has also been a major hit in the boudoir-dressing trend. Apart from providing good comfort and a sensual vibe, this supposed undergarment has the potential to be very versatile – especially when it comes to layering. Like the jumpsuit, the slip dress does not necessarily have to be attributed to warm temperatures because of its open and form-fitting features. It can also be coordinated with many pieces that not only provide a chic appearance but also sufficient warmth to aid in the colder seasons.  The ultimate goal is to achieve a composed look by bringing out lux style from basic loungewear. Here are four “spicy” ways to rock the slip dress in the winter season that will make you forget about that nasty freezing temperature.

sd2

Coordinating with Basics
Similar to the jumpsuit, basic tops may be worn underneath the slip dress for a layered look. Wear a short or long sleeve tee for a casual look or a turtleneck for a dressier appearance.

sd3

Coordinating with Bottoms
Don’t worry about your legs being bare because it IS possible and acceptable to wear a pair of bottoms underneath a slip dress. Jeans provide a smart casual look while dress pants give off total sophistication.

sd4

Coordinating with Sweaters
You may also choose to layer over top of the slip dress rather than underneath. For more warmth, consider wearing an oversized and chunky funnel neck or crew sweater for a chic look.

sd5

Coordinating with Accessories and Shoes
For a classic vintage look, you may consider putting over a fur stole or scarf over the slip dress. For shoes, knee-high boots are recommended for adequate leg coverage.

Fashion Jobs – Trend Alert: Pyjama Tops

Monday, October 30th, 2017

ST95-ADSPJ Insp

The definition of balancing comfort and style cannot get any more literal with the modern pajama top trend. Inspired by the remarkable Coco Chanel and the boudoir dressing of the twenties, pyjama tops have been popular amongst fashion fanatics because of their classic style and accessibility. However, styling them now might be a little trickier than we think because we are upgrading their versatility by treating them as daytime (or nighttime) modish pieces. Thankfully, we’ve had many high profile stylists and A-list celebrity models that have successfully pulled off the loungewear look, embracing the trend not only on a regular basis but also in the most elite gatherings of the fashion industry. Here are a few sensible pyjama top styling tips that will make you value these pieces more than you should!

casual pj

In a Casual Look
The main idea is to look poised and not sluggish. To make the pyjama top wearable in the public, pairing it with the right bottoms is crucial. One of the easiest is coordinating it with skinny jeans or any fitting bottoms. Complete the look by rocking some heels, mules, or boots.

pt2

In a Formal Look
Pulling off an upscale look with pyjama tops entails choosing the right fabric and bottoms. Satin or silk pyjama tops are perfect choices then pair them with culottes, faux leather leggings, or even a pencil skirt. You may also consider wearing a matching pajama set! Again, make sure to coordinate with heels, mules, or boots.

pt3

Layering
Pajama tops are light and airy pieces therefore layering is a consideration if you’re planning to make them your staple wardrobe pieces for the cold seasons. Wear either a turtleneck or a long sleeve tee underneath to provide warmth.

pt4

Accessorizing
Accessories certainly make a difference especially since you’re stapling a loungewear piece. For earrings, wear studs for a casual look or glam up the outfit by wearing statement danglers (i.e Pom bon earrings).  Compliment the look further by carrying a swanky clutch or shoulder bag.

Fashion Jobs – 5 Ways To Get Your Career Back On Track

Friday, October 27th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canada5WaysToGetYourCareerBackOnTrackInspiration

Life is full of highs and lows, and the same goes for your career. You’ll have times where you feel you’re exactly where you want to be and have a sense of accomplishment. In other cases, you might be at a part in your career where you feel stuck or need more of a challenge to continue growing. Whether it’s looking for that next opportunity, or finding ways to grow with a company you love, having to refresh your career is nothing to be ashamed of. If you’re looking for that je ne sais quoi for your career check out our advice for getting back on the right career path!

 

1. Set Goals, Have A Plan

That one piece of advice everyone in your life has given you, from your dad to your financial advisor of having a plan is by no means a gimmick. Setting career goals and building an outline of some sort of plan -five years, 10 years or even three months, is extremely important to working towards your ideal of success. What’s the key to the master plan working? Knowing that you can never really plan out life, and the plan is more of a template.

 

2. Network Is Your Networth

Talking to your friends and family is always a great way to get advice. But sometimes looking to your professional network to discuss career planning might be more beneficial. Your colleagues and superiors can give you a perspective based on their first-hand experience of you on the job, and the industry you’re in. Whether it’s feedback on your strengths and opportunities or insights on potential opportunities, your professional network is a goldmine of potential.

 

3. Work With A Recruiter

If you’re looking to make a move from your current organization, you might want to try connecting with a recruiter. Once you get to a certain level in your career, the best companies and opportunities are usually filled by a recruitment firm or consultant. Not all recruiters and processes are the same, so we recommend finding someone who specializes in your industry and is dedicated to getting to know you, in order to find the right fit for you. Starting on our job board is great for finding your new career in fashion and retail!

4. Higher Education

Sometimes that promotion or new opportunity requires a bit more training or education and it’s never too late to head back to class! Some people choose to study a full degree or diploma program, while others might prefer taking a couple courses or getting a certification. There’s an endless supply of free online training that can easily be completed after work, and some companies even offer internal development courses. Whatever way you choose to go, know that education really is power!

 

5. Find A Mentor

One piece of advice any senior level manager or executive will give you, is to find a professional mentor. This is someone who has insight into your industry or company and that can provide you with advice, inspiration and knowledge to help you grow in your career. Look to people within your industry, organization or network who either you would like to learn more from or have enjoyed communicating with. Big organizations often have mentorship programs senior managers and executives participate in, so be sure to take advantage of that.

Fashion Jobs – 4 Sites to Help You Land Your Dream Fashion Job

Thursday, September 28th, 2017

ST95-ADS05eada771eed114378d54046d7cde814

Whether you had the opportunity to study fashion in school or you simply have the passion for fashion (as cheesy as that sounds), a career in fashion may be for you! Now the only challenge is finding that dream job, because the truth is, we’re not all going to have it easy like Lauren Conrad on the Hills. Finding a job in the fashion industry is not only extremely competitive, but it’s also hard to find a job that’s perfect for you. But to help you start your job search, here are four career websites that can help you land your dream fashion job.

 

LinkedIn
LinkedIn is hands down one of the best sources for finding a job, especially in the fashion industry. By creating a profile, you’re able to follow companies you’re interested in working with, and network and connect with both potential employers and other people within the fashion industry. Messages can be exchanged in order to inquire about fashion jobs or to simply get advice on how to enter the industry. Through the job search engine, you can locate jobs within your area and filter out jobs by what type of position you’re looking for.

 

Instagram
While we all love Instagram for sharing our OOTD pics and looking for fashion inspo, it can also be a great tool for landing a fashion job. Through Instagram, you can follow brands, designers, and companies that you’re interested in. Today, many big brands share when they’re hiring on their social media channels, giving you an inside scoop on applying.

c7eddeb582a426a164ffae960911aac4

Indeed
Indeed is another incredible online job hunting tool, as it can be tailored to anyone’s needs and preferences. Jobs can be filtered out by date, location, position type and even company. A profile can be made where your resume can be stored, making it easy for you to quickly apply to jobs. Employers can then send you messages to set up interviews or to give you more information about the job position. Indeed is a great tool and the app is even better!

 

Style Nine to Five
Finally, there’s no better way to look for jobs in the fashion industry than with Style Nine to Five. Not only can you look for fashion and retail related jobs across Canada, but you can also head to the blog where you can find tips to help you land a job, and succeed at working within the fashion industry. You can also subscribe to the job feed in order to get notified when new jobs have been posted.

Fashion Jobs – Biggest Trends for Fall 2017

Monday, September 25th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canadainspo image

Fall may have technically just kicked off in Canada, but with all the warm weather we’ve been experiencing lately, it hardly feels as if autumn has actually arrived. But before our favourite fashionistas hit the streets decked out in the latest fall trends, we wanted to share what we predict will be the must-have trends for fall. So keep your eyes peeled, we predict these will be the 5 biggest trends of the season.

H&MDress

Red
The colour red is said to be the hottest hue for fall. This fall, get your hands on something in fire engine or cherry red, like this pleated dress from H&M as it’ll add the perfect pop of colour to your wardrobe and can be worn to and from the office with booties, flats or heels.

 

Shop the Look: Pleated Dress, $29.99, available at H&M 

Zara Suit

Power Suits
After checking out the street style looks from our favourite bloggers at New York Fashion Week, we have a feeling that power suiting will be everywhere this season. But rather than fitted silhouettes, you’ll see more relaxed and ‘90s-inspired office attire. If you want to try a power suit for yourself, we recommend opting for a luxe fabric like velvet or a statement colour like hot pink. We currently can’t get enough of this velvet suit combo, as it’ll bring a touch of high fashion to any office.

 

Shop the Look: Velvet Palazoo Trousers, $39.90, available at Zara and Oversized Velvet Blazer $49.90, available at Zara 

2.2702YMAP.DOT.Dot-Maples-Pleat-Playsuit-Front

Bold Patterns
There’s nothing better than an attention-grabbing outfit in a playful, bold pattern. And this season, you’re going to see bold patterns everywhere. From funky florals and polka dots to stars and bold stripes, you’ll find bold patterns on all your favourite fall pieces.

 

Shop the Look: Maples Pleat Playsuit, $595, available at Zimmermann

aritziaPants

Belted Trousers
Drawstring and belted bottoms were seen everywhere this summer, and it looks they are going to be even hotter this fall. We’re loving these chic belted trousers from Aritzia, as they can be worn dressed up to the office or worn casually with a pair of mules and a graphic tee.

Shop the Look: Wilfred Jallade Pant, $135, available at Aritizia

6c90bee543fd1187a57d91ca0dce5c2a_best

Baker Boy Hats
The final trend we think will be blowing up this season is the baker boy hat. It will add a subtle touch of sophistication to any look and will give you serious cool points. Style a baker boy hat with a pair of bell bottoms and a striped tee for ultimate French girl vibes.

 

Shop the Look: Glamorous Navy Baker Boy Hat, $29, available at Asos. Also view this style.

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaFrills in FashionWhether you call them ruffles or frills, they are currently the hottest trend of the summer. Following the spring and summer ready-wear-shows, frills have been dominating the fashion world and can be seen on just about everything from dresses and blouses and skirts and shoes. This high fashion trend can instantly make any look fun and girly and is the perfect trend to rock this summer. If you have yet to snag a frilled item for yourself, here are five stylish items to add to your wardrobe.

Free People Dress
The Dress
This simple off the shoulder dress from Free People is very on trend this season. The cut is perfect for dressing down with a pair of gladiator sandals or up with a pair of wedges. The bold frills add a unique feature to the dress. If you are daring to bare some skin and rock frills then this dress was made for you!

Shop the Look: Phi Phi Dress, $214.63, available at Free People

club monoco top
The Top
If you’re looking for a light and breezy fabric for summer, we highly recommend picking up something in Chambray. This is why we love this frilled chambray top from Club Monaco, it’s a basic that can jazz up an otherwise simple outfit. 

Shop the Look: Shilen Ruffle Tank, $139, available at Club Monaco 

Kate Spade Dress
The Office-Approved Dress
Kate Spade is known for her unique and feminine pieces, and this dress is definitely no exception. This dress is perfect for the office thanks to its Oxford-style cut and tailored shirt component.

The Romantic Top
We can’t get enough of this little number from Free People. The cascading frills can add a romantic touch to any outfit. When wearing a bold top like this, make sure to keep the rest of your look simple – think slicked back hair and minimal jewellery.

Frilled Shoes
The Shoes
Play around with the season’s hottest trend by picking up a frilled shoe in a fun colour, like millennial pink. When rocking something as bold as a frilled shoe, make sure to keep the look minimal, think a sweater or blouse and kick-flare jeans.

Fashion Jobs – How to Have a Successful Fashion Career Today

Tuesday, July 18th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaIMG-5284

When I started Style Nine to Five, there were no categories like ‘E-Commerce’ and ‘Social Media’ on my job board to select when posting. I had to add those categories two years ago after seeing such a shift and growing demand. About 50% (or more) of jobs posted these days are now in the E-Commerce industry. Some roles include Coordinators for Influencer agencies, E-commerce Specialists or Buyers for online retailers.

 

While we still have a number of Editorial roles regularly posted, it’s usually for digital media. Skill requirements for these roles typically include blogging, social media, and graphic design knowledge. I would suggest learning graphic design so you can stand out in today’s competitive world.

 

You need to be able to adapt to change while still keeping your voice, and to realize that you always need to work hard and prove yourself. I hear this a lot from employers. They find it challenging to find someone who is both driven and hardworking. Everyone wants their dream job NOW, but in reality, it doesn’t work that way. When you see the success of your peers on social media, it’s easy to forget that a lot of crucial steps went into how they got there. These steps aren’t posted on social, just the final product is.

 

Retail is still here, doing great and can be a very rewarding and lucrative career. Lots of internationally known companies have come to Canada (UK’s Ted Baker, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue) in the last three years, offering great opportunities for Canadian retail hopefuls. A high volume store manager’s salary can start at $75K and a Visual Merchandise Manager for Canada can be up to $100K. I’ve seen both and helped in the hiring process for these roles.

 

I’ve also noticed there’s has been a bigger push for ‘shopping local’. Therefore many local labels are really booming right now, Vancouver’s Gentle Fawn, Native shoes, Oak and Fort, to name a few, which has helped create even more job opportunities.

 

While the days of flipping through a magazine and smelling the fragrance ads or having a stack of Cosmos on your coffee table might, unfortunately, be coming to an end, there are so many new exciting things happening in this tech savvy world which we can look forward to.  And your knowledge and love of fashion as a career is still 100% achievable and relevant.

Fashion Jobs – Trend Alert: Tassels, Fringe, and Pompoms

Tuesday, July 11th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaFranz Inspo Image

 

Put the loud prints aside and embrace a new trend that has been a hot talk amongst fashion addicts! In the recent years, tassels, fringe, and pompoms have become popular embellishments to clothing and accessories, reminiscing the classic styles of the past but still embodying a fashion forward statement.

Luxury brands such as Versace, Gucci, and Balmain have adhered to this trend, boosting its popularity via the endorsements of many A-list celebrities including Gigi Hadid, Cara Delevingne, and the Kardashians.

Eventually, the expanse of the styles has become tremendous, allowing popular brands such as Forever 21, H&M, and Zara to fuse these “danglers” into their collections. Stay chic by getting your hands on these affordable pieces!

Screen shot 2017-07-11 at 10.54.12 AM

2. Tassels Zara

Tassels

French fashion house Balmain makes great use of this style in most of their pieces. Not only do tassels make clothing and accessories stand out heavily, but they also project a high level of sophistication that immediately induce conversations amongst style enthusiasts.  Pieces with tassels are appropriate for dressy occasions or if you’re ambitious, in the office. Accessories with tassels are more versatile and can be worn practically anytime.

Shop the look: Tassel Trim Self-Tie Top, $30.90, available at Forever 21 and Parka with tassels, $89.90, available at Zara

3. fringed sweater

4. Fringe Skirt

Fringe

A prevalent style of the ‘70s, fringe is back to “swish” those monotonous outfit days! Rock this style with minimal pieces to tone down the potential “costume-y” vibe but still look fresh and professional in the eyes of commons. Similar to tassels, fringe can be worn to intimate dinners or formal events throughout the day.

Shop the look: Fringed sweatshirt, $15.90, available at Zara and Fringed hem skirt, $39.99, available at Zara

5. Pompom shirt 6. Pompom bag

Pompoms

Of the three styles, pompoms definitely take the cake for being the most adorable! They have not only become popular to adults but also to young fashion goers. However, don’t let the cute style fool you – models have fiercely rocked pompoms on notable runway shows! Pompom-embellished pieces can be worn for daytime gatherings or even at the beach.

Shop the look: Chasym Linen Top, $119, available at Club Monaco and JADEtribe Basket Mini Pom Bag, $149.22, available at Shopbop

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaCiara Inspo Image

It’s that time of year that we’ve all been waiting for, where we can finally slip our feet into a pair of open-toed sandals, take ice cream breaks more often than one should, and above all, get our hands on the newest trends of the summer. The best way to get your look into the spirit of the season is through the power of the perfect statement accessory. To help you get a familiar with what accessory trends are currently at the top of every fashionista’s shopping lists, we rounded up the top statement accessories that will no doubt give your summer look the boost that it deserves.

1.Statement earrings

The Statement Earring

Whether you prefer a fun tassel, a string of beads or multiple dangling pearls, there is no limit to how large of a statement your ears can make this season. This statement accessory is the perfect detail to take your outfit to the next level on the trendy fashionista scale. There are all sorts of fun and bright colors to play around with, whether you decide to tie a specific color into your outfit or add a pop of color to a monochromatic look. This accessory is a fun one to shop around for, just remember to let your creativity run wild and that bigger is most definitely better!

2. Straw Hat

The Statement Straw Hat

Whether you choose to go for a wide brim or a simple fedora, the straw hat will not only keep you cool on those hot summer days but will also add a few extra trendy points to your summer look. It’s effortless, lightweight and the neutral color of the straw makes it easy to pair with any color and any outfit. You don’t have to be hitting the sandy beach or poolside to pull off this accessory, this one we are rocking anytime, anywhere.

3. Statement sunnies

The Statement Sunnies

Nothing makes a statement like a bold, colorful pair of fashionable eyewear. In order to complete your outfit for a day in the sun, add a little personality to your look with a pair of statement sunnies. A popular style for this season is the big cat eye or the hexagonal shaped Ray Bans or even bright colorful lenses, whatever your style or shape preference, don’t be afraid to be bold.

4.Straw Bag

The Statement Straw Bag

The straw craze continues and this time it’s designed in a way to carry around our most prized possessions of credit cards and lipstick. The straw handbag is making quite the statement this summer; its casual yet can be worn on any occasion and it’s lightweight yet durable enough to carry around all of your essentials. It is the accessory that reminds us of vacation, good weather and happy days; so why not add this accessory to your everyday look this season and dive into the vibes of summer time.

5. Neck Scarf

The Statement Neck Scarf

The final statement accessory on our list is the silk neck scarf. This is the perfect accessory to add a pop of color to an otherwise understated outfit, not to mention it can be styled multiple ways. You can wear this the obvious route and tie it around your neck or you can tie a silk scarf around the handle of your favorite purse.

Fashion Jobs – Styling White for the Office

Tuesday, May 30th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canada

Now that summer is finally on the horizon, it’s time to start adding white to your work wardrobe – if you haven’t already. And we’re not just talking about the go-to, tried and true white blouse; we’re talking about pants, dresses, and everything in between. Remember, white goes with just about anything and everything in your closet — just think of it as your new summer neutral. If you’re wondering how to style white for work, look no further, we’ve put together our favourite ways to style white for work this season!

 1. Layered

 

Layered Levels

By mixing layers, your outfit will instantly give off a more playful and carefree vibe. Walk into your next meeting with a flowing white-layered blouse (as pictured above) and you’ll be getting everyone’s attention for all the right reasons.

2.The White Blouse

The White Blouse

There’s nothing better than a simple white blouse. And come on, they can be worn dressed up or down. To truly turn some heads, pair your white blouse with cropped flared pants, and a pair of heeled mules. Trust us — you’ll look sophisticated and ready for après work cocktails.

3. Wide-Leg Trousers

Wide-Leg Trousers

Trousers are definitely an office-approved wardrobe staple, especially in the summer if you can find a pair in white. We love the monotone look lately, so we recommend styling a pair of white wide-leg trousers with a structured blouse, and a pair of white pumps. If you’re looking

for a way to make your monotone look more exciting, we recommend rocking a bold lip to add a splash of colour.

4. The White Out

The White Out

The key to wearing white separates is that you want your pieces to go together, but not match exactly. Pair pieces in fabrics that have the level of formality and play with texture. We love how this frilled poplin top is styled with a pair of flared crops, as they give off the same vibe.

5.The Flirty, pleated Skirt

The Pleated Skirt

If you want something a bit more lightweight, mix your usual white or cream work blouse and style with a pleated skirt, pumps and a structured carryall bag. This look is not only perfect for a hot summer’s day, but it definitely gives off some #girlboss vibes.

 6.The Cool Girl Uniform

 

The Cool Girl Uniform

If your work is a bit more casual and you’re allowed to wear sneakers, we recommend trying out this fashionista approved look. Style a slouchy t-shirt with a pleated white midi skirt, your favourite sneakers and a chic leather coat.

 7. The White Dress

The White Dress

Whether you prefer sporting a maxi, a mid-length, or a halter-style dress, a white dress is a must-have for summer.  The key is to make sure to keep your shoulders and knees covered with either a cardigan or long short sleeves and to keep accessories neutral and office-friendly.

  

Your initial thought was probably similar to ours, “white will get dirty and ruined!” Well maybe, but if you carry emergency stain remover or Tide-to-Go, most stains can be removed quite easily and you can wear white all summer long!
