Fashion Jobs – Grease is The Word

ST95-ADSmotojacketinspiration

One of the best investments you can make in your wardrobe is in a quality leather moto jacket. If you take care of it you’ll be able to wear it until the end of time (it’s pretty much guaranteed to outlive you), and it will give you an undeniable sense of “cool” that few other pieces can do. You can wear a moto jacket with pretty much everything, and it’s a refreshing alternative to a trench when you’re looking for business casual seasonal outerwear. Vintage or secondhand stores are great for leather goods, and if you’re opposed to the leather industry as a whole there are plenty of vegan options available to you.

Fashion Jobs – Summer Turtlenecks

Tuesday, August 25th, 2015

ST95-ADSmain.original.585x0

Sleeveless turtlenecks are having a major moment in fall fashion. It is easy to see why they are becoming so popular with the diversity they allow for many outfits! For a casual, yet still put together, office look, pair a sleeveless turtle neck with skinny pants, a bold bag, and booties. Once the weather becomes colder (I know we aren’t ready to think of that yet) it can be paired with a nice tailored blazer as well! Here are my top picks for pieces that compliment a sleeveless turtleneck well.

Fashion Jobs – The New Dressy

Thursday, August 20th, 2015

ST95-ADS

To me, a white button up is the ultimate staple in masculine dressing. Pairing this versatile item with a pair of shorts adds the perfect touch of femininity. My favourite type of shorts to pair this with are high-waisted cut offs along with some lace up sandals. Messily tuck in the button-up for an undone yet sophisticated look. For a more feminine look, pair a slim-fitting silk dress shirt with shorts in a matching colour. I love to pair navy with navy for this look and top it off with a pair of chunky heels. For an edgier look, I wear my silk black shorts with a sheer black dress shirt and pointed-toe booties. Pairing a dress shirt with shorts is so versatile, and can so easily be changed with a few simple accessories to create an effortless outfit.

Fashion Jobs – Oxfords for the Office

Tuesday, August 18th, 2015

ST95-ADSoxfordsinspiration

If you’re anything like me, you’ve come to realize that life is too short for uncomfortable footwear. But one thing that both flat and heel loving ladies can agree on is that a good pair of oxfords can do wonders for an outfit in a million different ways. You can keep it classic with a solid brown leather pair, or you can experiment with colours and prints. There are also a ton of different variations in style, ranging from traditional and familiar to more casual and edgy, with many styles taking inspiration from the oxford’s younger cousin, the creeper. My one piece of advice is to steer clear of shiny black patent oxfords, unless the look you’re going for is “groomsman chic”. In any case, the oxford is a great way to transition from summer to fall as it can be worn with a light dress just as well as with the wools and tweeds that none of us even want to think about just yet (we’ll save those thoughts for September.)

Finding a fashionable pair of tailored trousers that don’t out date your outfit is important. Not only will the perfect pair of trousers help you in achieving a great outfitbut alsogive you that extra confidence boost. Gone are the days where you only had a few trousers to pick from. With so many different styles of trousers on the market today,it is easy to find a pair suited to your style (while keeping it professional). I have rounded up a few of my favorite pleated trousers listed below. These trousers jumped out at me because theycompliment many different body shapes and show that there is a range of styles out there.

Fashion Jobs – The Best Black Pumps

Tuesday, August 11th, 2015

ST95-ADS

A good pair of black pointed-toe pumps is a wardrobe staple. While this shoe can be worn any time of year with almost anything, certain styles are more appropriate for various occasions. For office wear, I love a great pair of pointed toe mules like the Schutz pair pictured. These are professional but also interesting and add some excitement into a conservative office outfit. A simpler pair of black pointed toe pumps (see Head Over Heels pair pictured) is better paired with dark jeans and a casual t-shirt or sweater to amplify the look. Lastly, I like to add some edge to a more feminine look like a dress or flowy skirt with a pair of black pumps like the TopShop or Valentino pairs pictured. This little touch adds an unexpected element to more girly attire. While these options are how I like to wear my pointed black pumps, the beauty of this shoe is its versatility, so choose a pair that goes with your personal style!

Fashion Jobs – Grey Matter

Monday, August 10th, 2015

ST95-ADSgreyongreyinspiration

There’s something about a monochromatic grey look that is unbelievably sophisticated and sexy. Always a constant in the fall and winter months, grey is getting a reboot this year according to leading colour authority Pantone, which cites the shade Desert Sage, a cool and soothing greenish-gray, as “the ideal neutral across the Fall 2015 palette. Timeless and unobtrusive, yet powerful enough to make a statement on its own, Desert Sage speaks to the feeling of naturally inspired colors that remind us of things that are real and not invented.” Grey, like neutrals in general, is open to limitless interpretation. You can go menswear inspired, romantic, modern minimalistic and anything in between. Try mixing different metallics with your greys, or adding a pop of colour in the form of a hat or shoes in red, fuschia or yellow.

Fashion Jobs – Olivia Pope Office Style Inspiration

Sunday, August 9th, 2015

 ST95-ADSoliviapope 

I finally was able to sit down and binge watch Netflix’s popular show, Scandal. Instantly I was inspired by Olivia Pope’s fashion style. Whether she is solving a client’s problem or helping the President of the United States, Olivia Pope is always dressed to impress. She is a business woman that needs to maintain a professional appearance but doesn’t let that stop her from having fun with her wardrobe. I have rounded up one of my favorite looks that Olivia often sports various versions of: professional black slacks and a dress shirt paired with a fun pump and a comfortable cardigan to warm up the overall appearance.

Fashion Jobs – Blue Jean Baby: Denim Dresses for the Office

Wednesday, August 5th, 2015

ST95-ADS

denimdressinspiration

Times, they are a-changing. Once relegated to casual Fridays, denim in many cases has become more acceptable in offices and other workplaces and as a result, there are tons of diverse ways to wear it. Denim button-downs have been a staple for a few years now, but the spring runways (notably Gucci and Stella McCartney) have seen an onslaught of denim dresses that would work well for both the summer and fall months. As you may recall from a recentblog post discussing denim pinafore dresses, you can easily mix any given denim piece with other fabrics and textures to create a variety of different looks and moods. A looser, streamlined denim dress can look surprisingly sleek on its own, and a more frayed style will give you a gritty, urban feel – a far cry from the Canadian tuxedo. Almost as famous as the relationship itself, the world will never forget the denim gown Britney Spears wore in 2000 when she and Justin Timberlake first publicly acknowledged their rumoured romance. With any luck, your own denim dress will be just as memorable.

Fashion Jobs – White Blazers the Right Way

Tuesday, August 4th, 2015

ST95-ADS

Personally, I do not believe in the “no white after Labour Day” rule. For this reason, I love to wear a classic white blazer as a transitional piece coming into fall. This look is so classic and crisp and really pulls together any outfit. I love to pair my oversize white blazer with high-waisted denim shorts, a tee shirt and sneakers to add some contrast to the look. I also love to see a white silk blazer paired with a navy pencil skirt for a more professional outfit. For a dressier nighttime look, I wear my white blazer with high-waisted loose trousers, a crop top, and mules. This piece is so great because it can really be paired with any of the neutral pieces you have in your closet (dressy or casual), and adds that extra something to pull the whole look together perfectly!
