Fashion Jobs – Two-Pieces You Can Wear to the Office This Summer

Wednesday, June 13th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaStyle Nine To Five_Two Pieces You Can Wear To The Office_Inspiration

Summer style is effortless, fun and most of all comfortable, which is definitely needed especially on those hot and sometimes humid days. A seasonal favourite of most women poolside and also that’s become a big style trend this year on the fashion streets are two pieces. From bathing suits to top and pant sets, two pieces are dominating this summer’s style picks for all sorts of events like festivals, weddings, beach trips and even brunch. But with most two pieces being cropped or short sets, it can be a little hard to take this trend into the office. You know we love making the hottest trends work appropriate, so of course, we had to share our list of two pieces that you can wear to the office!

Little Ray Of Sunshine
Bring the sunshine into the office while you’re stuck inside for most of the day with this deep yellow pantsuit from Zara. The blazer is a peplum style, a great alternative to your classic blazer paired with a skinny trouser sitting at mid-waist. This set can be paired with nearly everything from a blouse or t-shirt to heels or a white sneaker and is a great investment as each piece can be worn both together or separately.

Casual Co-ord
Casual Fridays don’t have to be boring with your typical t-shirt and jeans, and you can have fun with your outfits while still adhering to any dress codes. This casual two piece set from Boohoo is the perfect pick to wear not only to the office on Fridays but depending on your office culture can be dressed up with heels and accessorized to create a more polished look for the rest of the week.

Check Me Out
Another great power suit, combining a classic cut with one of our favourite pattern trends, is this one from Topshop. This is definitively a suit that you’ll keep in your wardrobe for years to come with its timeless style. The only downfall is this isn’t available at Canadian Topshop inside Hudson’s Bay, and will need to be ordered off the UK Topshop site. But between the perfect grey check pattern and the versatility of this set, we guarantee it’s worth it!

Flowy Florals
We’re all about sets that look just as great with your closet staples as they do together, and this kimono and wide leg trouser set from Pretty Little Thing could almost be the poster child for versatility. Putting aside all the outfits these could make with other wardrobe pieces, together alone you can get totally different looks by wrapping up the kimono to leaving it open with a top. The light chiffon material makes it perfect for those warm days while still being appropriately covered for the office.

Perfectly Pieced Together
Looking for a co-ord set that’s a little different from a two piece suit? Then this striped combo from ASOS is a must-have! A button and tie-up shirt which even though are cropped works perfectly for the office when paired with something high waisted, like it’s matching culotte bottoms. This cozy co-ord set is perfect for those Mondays where you’d rather wear your PJs into work and is sure to be a favourite summer long!

Fashion Jobs – 5 Summer Office Wardrobe Staples

Tuesday, June 12th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaMain Image (1)

With the warmer weather finally here, it’s time to start thinking about what to wear to work through the hot summer months. And as great as beach attire is, unfortunately, it’s not entirely office appropriate. Luckily, there are plenty of on-trend pieces that you can pick up this season to leave you feeling cool and comfortable in the heat, but still office-ready. Here are the top five wardrobe staples to include in your summer work wardrobe

Shirtdress

Shirtdress
When you’re looking to get out the door quickly in the mornings, a shirtdress makes getting dressed a snap. They’re a great versatile piece to have, especially in a cotton or linen to keep you feeling cool throughout the day.

Culottes

Culottes
Staying breezy and comfortable is the key to summer dressing, which can sometimes be difficult to adhere to while still maintaining a professional look. Enter the culotte: pants that are loose enough for a hot summer day, but still manage to make you feel put together and stylish.

Camisole 2

Printed Camisole
A printed camisole is a piece likely hanging in your closet that doesn’t always get the attention it deserves. As for styling one, it works just as well with a pair of jeans on a casual day as it does with a blazer for a more polished vibe.

Jacket

Layering Jacket
In an office with a constantly changing temperature, the best way to be prepared is with a lightweight jacket. A denim jacket, a blazer, a military jacket, or even a cardigan are all great choices to keep on hand at your desk to throw on when the AC starts blasting.

Sandal

Chunky Sandal
One of the best things about summer is the ability to wear any type of shoes and not having to worry about your feet ending up wet or cold. Sandals with a comfortable heel in a neutral colour are a great office shoe to go with every possible outfit. Sandals are sometimes considered an office no-no, so just be sure to double check your company’s dress code to be sure that they’re allowed.

Maison Simons to Occupy Former Sears Space
Large retail spaces formerly occupied by Sears are starting to get scooped up. The latest announcement – Maison Simons will be settling into its new quarters at CF Fairview Pointe Claire in Montreal. This will be the French Canadian company’s 16th retail location. Maison Simons is excited about their expansion of physical spaces through Canada. President of the company, Peter Simons says, “As we continue to grow inside and outside of Quebec, we know that physical locations are a vital part of the retail experience and go hand-in-hand with the growing digital economy.” The two-level, 100,000 square foot store will be one of the first steps in a new project to build a city centre on Montreal’s West Island.

 

GRAIL Sneakers Opens in Vancouver
Vancouver has a thing for sneakers and the retail market is surely reflecting it. Granville Street is now home to GRAIL, a sneaker concept store involving an insane array of sneakers and streetwear. The 3100 square foot space will carry popular brands such as Nike, Puma, Adidas, Vans and New Balance as well as some more obscure global brands like Karhu, Colmar and Leather Crown. With an offering of approximately 350 different shoes, there’s a something for everyone. GRAIL considers sneakers a “mainstay in everyone’s wardrobe” and is staying on top of the growing trend of athleisure.

 

Remembering the Legendary Kate Spade
Sparkles floating in phone cases, animal shaped bags, necklaces with bright pink baubles, earrings with chandeliers of fringe, polka dot stationary and the iconic Sam bag – Kate Spade not only left behind her sparkling personality but her playful, extraordinary talents. The 55-year-old designer was found dead in her apartment in Manhattan Tuesday morning. As the fashion world mourns another loss and sends thoughts and love to the family and friends, we know we will always remember her unique style, her impactful designs and her bright smile.

 

Doublet Wins LVMH Prize
And the winner is…. Masayuki Ino of Doublet! The Tokyo-based designer tells Vogue after winning that he did not expect to win and is left feeling “a little shocked”. As the winner of the grand prize, Ino will receive a year of mentoring from the star-studded jury including the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Maria Grazia Chiuri, Marc Jacobs, Nicolas Ghesquière, Humberto Leon, Carol Lim, Jonathan Anderson, and Clare Waight Keller as well as €300,000 to grow his brand. His experimental and gender neutral designs were the right amount of stylish while impressing the judges with innovation and advanced textiles. As for now, the 38-year-old designer said he is going to focus on the basics – “just keep doing good design, and deliver it on time.”

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaSNTF_5 Warm Weather Shoes To Strut From The Office To Happy Hour In_Inspiration

With the days getting longer and our favourite patios opening for the season, the summer months are slowly handing us back our post-work social lives. No longer are the evenings of rushing in snowy weather and darkness from work to dinner, and quickly home to sit in sweats with a bottle of wine. We’re finally able to sneak in a couple more hours of fun in the sun after a hard day’s work! This means we need outfits that can last through business meetings all the way to nightcaps and the most important piece has to footwear. The two things you want to look for is a style that works both at the office and out on the town, and most importantly is comfortable all day long. We’ve held these requirements close while putting together this list of shoes to strut from the office to happy hour in, packed with a little something for everyone!

Boogie Nights
Summer is the time to play with colour in your wardrobe and what better way than a bright pair of shoes! These 70’s retro feel platform heels are the perfect balance of work appropriate and dancefloor fun! Not to mention the block heel and front platform really help relieve pressure on your feet from carrying your body weight all day. The coral colour is a great choice for the season, but they are also available in black for a more conservative/classic look.

Walk A Couple Blocks
If you were ever looking for the perfect tie-up block heel sandal for summer, these would probably have to be it. Everything from the clean-cut block heel, simple colourway and the perfect balance of a tie-up sandal with support make this heel perfect for all-day wear! Rock these with everything from your favourite culottes or pencil dress to a casual pair of jeans!

Minimally Chic
The shoes of the season have to be low block heeled mule sandals and they’re the perfect pick for around the office or a night out on the town. We recommend pairing these with a good pair of cropped slacks or office-appropriate sundress. They come in four different colours but we’re loving the white colour to keep up with the white shoe trend that is continuing on for spring/summer.

SNTF_5 Warm Weather Shoes To Strut From The Office To Happy Hour In_Avec Les Fills Mara Mule

Moscow Mules
Another great pair of mules on our list are these blush Avec Les Filles strappy mules in the perfect shade of blush. This shoe checks off everything on our list – versatile, comfortable and stylish! We love the bubble styled strap that brings a modern feel to this 90’s style.

Party Shoes
Looking for the perfect balance of work and party appropriate? These colourful strap toe sandals are just for you! The colourful embroidery work on the shoe makes these perfect for day parties or after work drinks but are still refined enough to be taken seriously at work. If the bright tones aren’t your thing they’re also available in more neutral colours.

5 Ways to Break Out of Your Workplace Slump
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. Read the full post here

5 Plus Size Luxury Fashion Hacks
But friends, times they are a-changin’ and more and more designers are becoming exclusive to all sizes and shapes. Christian Siriano stocks select garments up to a 22W and Moda Operandi is offering a bevy of size 16 dresses and is eyeing more size inclusivity. Yet, change is slow to take effect. Uncle Karl is still siding with sizeism and let’s face it, most European luxury garments fit on the smaller side. Before big tears roll down your face and leave water marks on the vachetta of your Louis, I have some stealthy ways to keep up with the fashion set. Ready, set, blow your tax refund! Read the full post here

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.”

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.

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.
