We all know that fashion runs in cycles, but sometimes there are certain trends that come back and not only surprise us, but also leave us wondering if we could possibly “go there” again.

 

 

Why are these so great that they’ve crept back into stores? They literally will help get you through any kind of weather and can be worn in endless different ways.  Pretty much every retailer offers some version of this pant, whether it’s a funky print, a soft leather or thick tweed. If you have plans to paint the town red on Saturday night, or want a professional work outfit on a chilly Monday morning, culottes can be found in any material, length and style to cater to specific occasions.

 

Welcome back.

 

Product Info:

1. Love Culottes CAD $77

2. River Island US $30

3. ASOS, CAD $75.32

4. Zara CAD $ 49.90

5. Aritzia CAD $110

Fashion Jobs – Transitioning Your Knits

Tuesday, March 24th, 2015

Style Nine to Five - fashion jobsTYK-Photo

 

 

It is right about now, in this month of March, where the warmish temperatures call on a time of transition.  Winter had us fall in love once again with chunky knits and while spring has not yet sprung, it is springing and we no longer need excessive sweaters.  Like in lessons of love, if something no longer serves you, you should set it free.  It is time to let go of our chubby sweaters and embrace seasonal appropriate versions of the cozy sweaters that once were.  You can do this by opting for light weight fabrics, open knits, wider necklines and short sleeves or slight crop tops.  All of these options let go of the winter heat and let in a little bit of that long overdue spring breeze.

 

Product Info: 

Steffen Schraut Essential Turtleneck Sweater, £105.00, available at Stylebop.com

Comfort Zone Sweater, US $38.99, available at Ruche

Fashion Jobs – Looks for Less

 Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs

 

In a society where keeping up appearances has become more important than ever before, looking fashionable and trendy has jumped to the top of the priority list. Unfortunately this can be an expensive priority, which for most is not supported by a celebrity bank account. How can we achieve a high-end designer look that most of us simply cannot afford, but still look the part?

Here are a few suggestions:

Just because the weather is dreary doesn’t mean you can’t dress fashionably. Here are some things to consider when finding wet weather gear.

• Fabrics: Wear layers –a cotton or other breathable fabric underneath your raincoat will keep you cool in wet weather

• The perfect jacket: based on how rainy your city is – decide whether you need a water-resistant (which temporarily resists water soaking through the material), water repellant, or waterproof (the top notch of rainwear clothing) jacket.

• Umbrellas: dependent on how much you expect to use your umbrella, a good sturdy one might be worth the investment – especially if your area is windy.

 

1. Joules Right as Rain Coast Hood Jacket , $130 available at johnlewis

2. Hunter Ladies’ Original Slim Zip Wellington Boots Raspberry, $235 available at countryattire

3. FULTON umbrella, $43 available at selfridges

4. Joules Womens Navy Right As Rain Waterproof Spotty Parka, $245 available at psyche

5. Rose Crop Top Hoodie A$ID Clothing, $64 available at alclothing

Fashion Jobs – #GIRLBOSSES: Rebecca Ramsdale

Friday, March 13th, 2015

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs

image (1)

 

We’re all about empowerment, especially when it comes to successful women who create a name for themselves in such a competitive industry. #GIRLBOSSES is an exclusive Style Nine to Five series where we feature both inspiring and successful women in the fashion industry about how they go to where they are today.

 

This month’s #GIRLBOSS is Rebecca Ramsdale, a Merchandise Team Lead and Social Media Coordinator at Urban Outfitters. We asked her about how she landed her dream job.

Style Nine to Five: What steps did you take to get to the position you have now? 

 

Rebecca Ramsdale: I applied about a year and a half ago to be a men’s part time sales associate, and knew I would have to work my butt off to get as many shifts as I could. My Store Merchandise Manager took notice of all my hard work and asked me to apply for the Merchandise Team Lead Position. Less than a year later, I became really passionate about taking product photos for our @UOToronto Instagram. I talked up how much I wanted to run the account to anyone that would listen, and eventually they asked me to take over!

 

SNTF: What is the best advice to give for those who aspire to work in the fashion industry?

 

RR: Tell every person you talk to what you want to do, and where you want to go with your career. Someone out there wants to help you reach your goals.

 

SNTF: What is your favourite part of your job?

 

RR: Creating. I love making something out of nothing.

 

SNTF: Which #GIRLBOSS inspires you in the professional world?

 

RR: I would say the Girlboss herself, Sophia Amoruso. Being able to take a passion and turn it into a career is so inspiring, and I hope to be able to do the same some day!

1We’re in the last stretch of winter – which means soon enough we can ditch our parkas and make some room in our closet for dresses and t-shirts again! Hopefully I’m not getting too ahead of myself, but I am pumped to start shopping for the spring season!

No matter what your budget is for this season, you can still buy a little something to update your spring wardrobe.

If you’re still strapped for cash after the holiday season, why not buy a statement piece of jewelry and add some kick to any outfit. Places like H&M or Forever 21 are great for finding affordable jewelry.

If you’re budget is a little higher and you have about $100 to spend, why not buy a trench coat or a flirty spring dress. A trench coat is a good staple for the spring season while a dress with a pair of tights can transition nicely from spring to summer.

If you have a bit more cushion and want to really treat yourself, invest in a classic bag or a pair of shoes. These items are timeless and will be worth the investment!

 

Product List

Women’s Nike ‘Free 5.0 V4′ Running Shoe, $125 available at NORDSTROM

Minimal Dress, $47 available at MANGO

H&M Trenchcoat, $95

Chic Golden Faux Gem and Faux Pearl Pendant Women’s Necklace, $8.96 available at NASTYDRESS

Mansur Gavriel Coated Large Bucket Bag $615 available at FORWARDFORWARD

Fashion Jobs – 5 Spring Must-Haves

With March in full swing, and the weather warming up on the west coast, spring is officially in the air. As a customary greeting to the season of new life and rebirth, it’s time to bid winter’s heavy knits and sombre neutrals farewell, and adopt a lighter, brighter disposition for the coming months.

There’s nothing more exciting than prepping your wardrobe for the new season. Whether that means swapping out cold weather favourites for the pieces that received the most mileage last spring, or purchasing new additions altogether – I’m willing to bet the following items will be making more than just a few appearances in your future ensembles.

Guess Jeans

A Pair of Light Wash Denim:

Light wash denim is the perfect (and much less daunting) alternative to white denim for spring. Cropped, distressed, or boyfriend-cut styles in lightweight fabrics are all great options to consider when adding to your jean collection.

Aldo

A Strappy Block Heel

A strappy block heel is really the best of both worlds – offering the stability of a winter bootie, while giving you a chance to show off that fresh pedicure as the temperatures start rising!

Michael Kors

A Vibrant Crossbody

Neutrals may be the dominating palette when it comes to winter fashion, but spring is all about colour, and vibrant colour at that. Invest in a small to mid-sized crossbody bag, just roomy enough to fit all your essentials into, which can also serve as the exclamation point to any outfit.

Club Monaco

 

A Trench Coat

Unfortunately, the dawn of spring doesn’t necessary mean automatic t-shirt weather, as is the case in many places. If I had to choose one outerwear piece to wear all season, it would be a quality trench coat. This versatile piece will protect you against the spring breeze, all the while being anything but stuffy.

Banana Republic

A Go-To Button Down

Every girl needs a white button down. Whether you prefer cotton, linen, or even silk (for a bit of luxe) – this wardrobe staple will undoubtedly be working overtime this spring.
