Fashion Jobs – Fringe

Friday, May 22nd, 2015

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs

fringe

 

With the 70’s having a major fashion moment, it is no surprise that one of its biggest counterparts fringe, has been on the front lines. Lately I am seeing fringe on everything. From handbags, shoes, to jackets, fringe has made a major comeback this season.  I love that fringe has been popping up in many materials like leather or suede. Each type of material gives a whole new identity to the fringe look. I have gathered some of my favorite fringe pieces with inspiration from the fashionable Olivia Palermo.

Fashion Jobs – Short Story

Tuesday, May 19th, 2015

Style Nine to Five - Fashion jobs

1

Now that it’s getting hotter out, it can be a challenge try to find clothes for work that won’t feel too heavy. Depending on your office environment – shorts can be a great alternative to a summer dress or skirt.

 

Here are some things to consider on how to make shorts work for you at the office.

 

1. Consider if shorts will be appropriate for your office. Not all offices will allow shorts and before pioneering the trend at your work, think about how conservative your workplace is.

2. Think about proportions. Remember – you’re still in a professional setting, so administer the finger tip length test before leaving your house Monday morning.

3. Pair it with traditional office wear. A good way to keep things professional is to pair your shorts with a blazer or button up.

4. Be brave with patterns. Make your look something special by trying a bold patterned pair of shorts.

5. Elevate your look. Keep things classy and professional with heels.

Fashion Jobs – Summer’s Top Handbags

Monday, May 18th, 2015

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs

handbagssummer

A handbag has the ability to make or break an outfit. Investing in the perfect handbag is an art that women have been perfecting throughout time. Handbags can be a bit tricky when it comes to purchasing just the right one. For instance, you don’t want to buy a handbag that is going to be in for one season and out the next. However, most women still want a bag that is in style. The key to mastering handbag shopping is finding a bag that is transitional. The bags I love most are ones that I can wear with multiple outfits for a few different seasons. I have rounded up bags that are not only great for summer but also early fall as well.

miranda kerr style

 

Miranda Kerr has become a household name thanks to her major modeling contracts with Reebok, Victoria’s Secret, Clinique, and her skin care line, Kora Organics. I always look to see what she is wearing because of her strong sense of style. She is not afraid to take risks and play up her outfits but maintains true to her feminine side. Often, her style consists of tailored blazers and pencil skirts, which makes her style great for inspiration when getting ready for the office. I love this “off-duty” weekend look she is wearing. Many of the pieces that make up this look can be incorporated to other outfits for an entire different look! I have found pieces to emulate her weekend style.

Boyfriend_Inspiration

 

The boyfriend-chic look has been one of our favourite ensembles to put together from season to season. From boyfriend jeans to boyfriend shorts, we’ve embraced this trend through and through. Now come to style the Boyfriend Shirt. Here are five ways to effectively grasp this trend:

Boyfriend_FirstPhoto

1. Paired with fitted leather skinnies.

 

A loose item of clothing tends to pair seamlessly with something more fitted and accentuating. Leather skinnies will add to the chic element of the look and give your figure more shape.  Acne Studios Casual Pants, $482, available at Yoox

Boyfriend_SecondPhoto

 

2. An asymmetrical pencil skirt.

 

Nothing adds dimension to an outfit quite like an asymmetrical pencil skirt. Leave the Boyfriend shirt untucked to keep the look casual and effortless. Maurie and Eve Grace Skirt, $170

Boyfriend_ThirdPhoto

3. Unbuttoned over a feminine dress.

 

If you’re sartorial ideals steer more on the feminine side and you’re uneasy about trying out this trend, leave it unbuttoned over a feminine dress. Over a pastel or floral dress, a Boyfriend Shirt will allow you to add an unexpected element to the outfit. Lulu Like You Do Lavender Dress, $40

Boyfriend_FourthPhoto

 

4. Crochet shorts.

 

Another way to maintain a sense of femininity is by pairing your Boyfriend Shirt with crochet shorts. Keep your look monochrome with a pair of white crochet shorts and the dynamic of your outfit will be complete with different textures and fits. TOPSHOP Scallop Crochet Shorts, $47, available at The Bay

Boyfriend_FifthPhoto

5. Matched with boyfriend jeans.

 

Boyfriend-on-boyfriend will demonstrate ease and effortlessness by pairing two trends that are appreciated by everyone this season. Too maintain a level of sophistication, slip on a pair of sleek pumps to add length to the overall look.  Zara Boyfriend Jeans, $49.90

Sleeveless_Inspiration

 

We’ve spent this entire Winter longing for warm weather, and now that Spring has finally arrived, we are having a miniature crisis trying to find work-appropriate clothing that will not have you sweating. It’s difficult, we know. That’s why we have compiled a list of the perfect items to rock at work that will have you feeling breezy yet professional!

A sleeveless button-up is always an effortless choice.

 

A high-neckline will keep you looking sophisticated and not too revealed.

 

You can never go wrong with a well-fitting vest to add layers and dimension to your look. When dressing for work, it’s best to steer clear of completely strapless items. By adding a vest over-top, you have an outfit perfect for the weather and the office.

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
