Fashion Jobs – Ditch the Heels and Welcome the Mule

Monday, May 15th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canada

Inspirational Image

Women everywhere anticipate the moment when they can (literally) kick off their heels and feel their toes again.

With open toe season quickly approaching, let’s ditch the uncomfortable heels and go for a more unexpected approach to our footwear options. Mules are having a serious moment this year and the new ‘it’ shoe has created quite the stir.

We can’t get over the ease and comfort this shoe brings, and with all the different styles available, ditch the straps and six- inch heels and opt for a chic backless option that will have you strutting around town like the fashionista you are.

You will find yourself gravitating towards this style due to its eccentric and effortless style and because it will elevate your look for every outing. From ‘90s-inspired metallic to millennial pink, here’s the inspiration you need to stock up on a few pairs for the season.

1.Metallic

The Eye-Catching Mule

Metallic shoes are having a moment right now and silver mules are an easy way to add some serious edge to your look. This eye-catching shoe style will quickly become a wardrobe staple and will go with more in your closet than you may assume.

2.Dressy

The Elegant Mule

When choosing a mule for a special occasion you’ll definitely want to increase the heel height and go for something a bit more elegant. To achieve this, we recommend exploring luxe suede and satin fabrics with classy detailing like subtle bows and jewels.

3.Mesh

The Edgy Mule

For the girl who is low- key but still wants to show some edge to her outfit, a shorter, block heel with mesh is the way to go. This style is sleek and sexy and is perfect for a night out, not to mention you’ll definitely be comfortable the entire night.

4.Satin Fabric

The Flat Mule

We all need a great flat in our shoe repertoire, a go to when you have ten seconds to throw on a pair of shoes and get out the door. A satin mule adds a touch of fun to an outfit, but still says, “I have business to take care of.” Looking smart and polished is exactly what a satin or leather flat mule will give you.

5.Vibrant

The Vibrant Mule

A vibrant mule is perfect for the bold woman who loves channeling her inner Carrie Bradshaw by strutting her stuff in a statement shoe. If this sounds like you, a hot pink mule with floral detailing is all you need this season. This style goes with everything from a crisp white tee and jeans to a flirty, floral dress, easily making you the liveliest woman in the room.

Fashion Jobs – 5 Tips For Landing the Fashion Job of Your Dreams

Thursday, March 23rd, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canada

1.Inspirational Image

Many of us have grown up with the dream of working in the fashion industry. Whether it’s in the editorial world, in a buying office or in the design field, there are endless opportunities to make a name for yourself in the industry. But how do you actually get in? Breaking into the fashion industry can be a seemingly daunting and exclusive task, but we are here to tell you that it can be done and you can land the job you’ve always dreamed of.   

So here are some proven tips that will help you make it in the industry.

Intern

If you were to ask anyone who currently works in the fashion industry, I guarantee you they got their start as an intern. At this point in the game, any experience is good experience, so cast your net wide and even if you don’t land an internship in the exact area you’re looking for, it’s still valuable to build up your resume and get your foot in the door.

Network

While your foot is in the door, it’s key to make connections for future employment (or more internship) opportunities. Attend events, hoard business cards, and make connections so when the time comes, you have a pool of people to get in touch with. Whether it’s someone who can introduce you to someone at a company you’re interested in or even just someone you see as a mentor who can give you advice, good old-fashioned networking is still a huge part of the fashion industry.

Go Above and Beyond

Showing up and doing your job is never a bad thing, but to really get noticed and ultimately to get hired, you need to go the extra mile to stand out. In an industry where there are so many people gunning for the same roles, being the first person to volunteer for a task, staying late or coming in early to help with a project, and taking every opportunity to learn will set you apart from the crowd.

Teamwork

Another thing anyone in the industry will tell you is that they didn’t get to where they are alone. Whether through networking or working on a project, working well with others is a major part of landing a job. No matter where you are on the fashion ladder, you want to be remembered for being helpful, not for how many people you stepped on to achieve your goals.

Be Kind

Although The Devil Wears Prada may tell us otherwise, you don’t need to be a hellish person to make it in the industry. Fashion is all about being authentic, and people can tell if you’re not being real, as quick as they can spot a knock-off Chanel bag. So if you’re true to yourself, hardworking, and kind, you will have no problem building a career in the fashion industry.

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!

It’s finally starting to feel like summer, which means that it’s almost that time of year again- the time of the year where your boyfriend drags you out to a weekend in the wild forest. That’s right, I’m talking about camping season. Now for some people, a weekend in a forest is a blessing- it’s a serene bliss of disconnection from the real world. But if you are anything like me, it’s a close second to hell. When he tries to tell me it’s fun, all that flashes in my head is mosquitoes, flannel shirts, dirty hair, and peeing outside. But I have a secret; ladies- it doesn’t have to be all scum. Because here is your go-to “glamping” list. Glam Camping is most definitely where it’s at for the fashion loving, social media obsessed, city girl. Here’s my top ten items that you need to be packing in your bag for a weekend of bliss, bug-free, summer adventure.

1. Original Tour Canvas Hunters in Brown (Giuntoli), $165, Littleburgundyshoes.com

Because everyone needs at least one (or if your in Vancouver, 10) good pair of rainboots. If your camping, rainboots are the easiest things to slip on and off out of your tent without struggling to balance yourself when doing them up.

2. Ray-Ban Gradient Aviators, $173, Revolveclothing.com

A classic pair of Ray-Ban Aviators will show your friends that even though you may dress well, you can dress down a bit too (just don’t tell them the price!

3. Impossible Vintage Polaroid SX-70 Starter Camera, $360, Urbanoutfitters.com

Some of the best (and worst) memories are made when your out of your element, a vintage polaroid camera will make sure you have those memories even if you drop your iPhone into a river.

4. Happy Camper Slouchy Pullover in Eco Grey, $59.99, Campbrandgoods.com

A good sweater with a catchy logo that will fit right in at the campfire. A pullover sweater is one of the best things you can bring camping, its an easy and convenient piece without being overdressed.

5. Babaton Antony Hat, $65, Aritzia.com

This hat has a classic shape with an update, so you can show off your style even in the wild. Because of its neutral tones, you can wear it with anything. Plus, a hat is especially good after a couple days in the wild without a hair straightener…

6. Wilfred Free Beatriz Romper in White, $125, Aritzia.com

A romper is one of those pieces that is incredibly easy to wear, and easy to move around with. You get the on-trend style of a dress, without sacrificing functionality by wearing a boring pair of cut-off denim shorts.

7. Glacier Park 100th Anniversary Blanket, $239, Pendleton-usa.com

Why should you have to bring a sleeping bag camping? Load your tent with a bunch of comfortable, patterned blankets to make it your own!

8. Small Banff Bag in Tribe, $348, Roots.com

Fashion Jobs Toronto – Flip Flops : The Shoe of Summer

flip flops

Flip flops are synonymous with summer for obvious reasons: they’re comfortable, airy and no-fuss. Letting our toes breath is a small pleasure of the warmer months and being able to slip shoes on and go is perfect for a lazy summer day. Flip flop sandals have been worn for centuries (albeit in different styles than we see today) and are one of summers basics and essentials. A casual and laid-back look, these shouldn’t be worn to the office or formal events, however, there are some stylish ones that are definitely worth dressing up.

2. Mel Shoes Stylish Expression Sandals, $32.99, available at ModCloth

Fashion Jobs Toronto – Overalls ‘Overall’ a Great Look!

Monday, May 5th, 2014

ST95-ADS

Overalls 1overalls3

Overalls 5Overalls 2

Overalls 6Overalls 4

For those of us who grew up in the 90s, the thought of wearing overalls can seem like a bad trip down memory lane. However, gone are the days of oversized, poorly structured denim. This spring, the overall is making a major comeback, and it has never looked better.

It can be tough to know what to wear with overalls. With many different styles and cuts available, you have limitless choices for what you can wear. The most obvious choice may be a simple neutral t-shirt. Pairing your overalls with this classic choice allows you to leave the attention on the overall. Neutral colours are best when you are opting for a printed or graphic onesie. With this trend, you can also combine it with another favourite piece this spring; the crop top. Crop tops look adorable under overalls, and this style will help you cover any areas you may not want exposed, when traditionally wearing a short top. If you are a true fashion daredevil, use a graphic overall to create a fantastic print on print look. You can always keep your colours within the same palette in order to try something outside of the box, all the while looking put together.

This spring, don’t be afraid to try, and wear overalls. With many styles, colours and prints available, you will not only be happy with its versatility, but you will also look perfectly on trend. These new pieces are not the dreadful looks of our past; they have been completely reinvented for the 2010s.

1. Free People Railroad Printed Overall, $162.89

2. Anthropologie Current/Elliot Ranch Hand Overalls, $348.00

3. ASOS Overalls in Leather Look, $36.92

4. Express Overall Shorts, $47.94

5. Forever 21 Ikat Print Overall Shorts, $33.80

6. Forever 21 Polka Dot Overall Romper, $27.80

Fashion Jobs Toronto – Blurred Lines

Black and white are two traditional, neutral colours that can be worn with anything. However, when pairing those shades in a striped pattern, your look will get elevated to a whole other level.

Prints are a great way to add interest to your outfits, and they are an easy addition to any wardrobe. Unfortunately, some prints can be distracting, and since they are so busy, a lot of people feel uncomfortable wearing them. Black and white stripes are the perfect mix between a print and a solid, and they can be worn during the day or evening. If you want to be daring, you can opt for a full striped onesie, or to play it more demurely, you can rock a simple a-line skirt. No matter how you choose to wear this look, you will love its versatility and its ability to be worn for any occasion.

1. Urban Outfitters Colorfast Criscross Off-The-Shoulder Top, $34.00

2. H&M Striped Skirt, $34.95

3. Topshop Stripe Tunic, $52.00, available at The Bay

4. Free People Jailbreaker Romper, $101.27
