Fall Fashion is all about edgy and industrial styles to achieve that moody style that works so perfectly during those grey and gloomy autumn days. Military inspired fashion has had a popular surge over the past few seasons and the trend just happens to add that moody edge that is quintessential to fall style.

Fashion Jobs – Soft Pastels for Fall

Monday, October 20th, 2014

Style Nine to Five - Fashion JobsPastels and neon - How to

Pastels - How to“You should only wear pastels in the spring,” said no one ever. Pastel hues add life to your wardrobe and they make for some super delicate and feminine pieces to incorporate into your daily routine. Contrast them with neutral shades for a pop of color and -if you’re feeling extra daring-throw on a pair of neon pumps to spice it up. I love the color-block effect and combining a few colours that complement one another (it’s more fun). For example, a soft pink pull-over and a pair of comfy spearmint jeans. Here are a few looks to get you started!

Fashion Jobs – Fashion Career Advice: Dream Job

Thursday, October 16th, 2014

Style Nine to Five - fashion jobs20141016-256698406_3

 

How would you define your dream job? Where do you see yourself in 5 years? We’re asked that often in interviews but have you actually thought of this? Take a moment to truly reflect on what you, as individuals want, free from any external influences. These factors include family, peer, as well as societal expectations, and even pressures that we place on ourselves. Given all the distractions and disruptions in our immediate environments, it becomes difficult to think only of what would make us happy.

 

Christie: A dream job should lie at the point of impact between your passions and skills. It should be completely unique to you, because there is no other person like you out there. Why rely on conventional job titles to describe what you would call your ideal career? Who cares if your dream job description doesn’t exist? Create your own if you have to! Stay true to what you want, and make achieving that goal your Plan A. When I launched Style Nine to Five, I knew that I had finally taken the first major step in attaining what I had always dreamed of. I had no Plan B because I didn’t want one. While that may create a high pressure environment to succeed for many, I found it motivating as it forced me to work that much harder to make sure that I did not fail.

 

However, owning a business is not the right path for everyone. In fact, for many of you, your dream job already exists in today’s employment marketplace. If that is the case, then carefully examine your wants and needs when mapping out your career plan. Other aspects of the “job,” including the geographical location of where you will work and the company culture are just as important as the actual job description. If you know that you want to work in New York City, at an open concept office environment that is more casual than corporate, then you’ve just helped yourself narrow down your choices. This isn’t about eliminating possibilities, rather, it’s about staying true to what will make you happy. You should be especially picky when it comes to your future career! After all, who wants to waste their time doing something that they don’t enjoy?

Fashion Jobs – Flared Jeans

Tuesday, October 14th, 2014

Style Nine to Five - Fashion JobsSong of Style - Flares (1)

Fashion trends are like seasons, they come and go. Flared jeans are no exception. I know what you’re going to say… That’s so 70s! But I’m here to change your mind and add yet another chic item to your wardrobe. Flared jeans can be extremely flattering when worn the right way, this means choose styles according to your shape and size.

Kim Kardashian - Flares (V2)

Here is the 411 on how to keep this look right on point:

How to - Flared Jeans

BASIC GUIDELINES The rule of thumb with flared jeans is to keep everything in your outfit balanced. That being said, since the pants are already pretty wide, opt for more closely fitted counterparts (i.e. a silky blouse). Accessorise to accentuate your waist. Thin belts can be found almost anywhere, and will make for an eye-catching piece. As for shoes, heels are best in my opinion, but for a laid back look, pointy flats, boots or wedges will do the trick. Lastly, don’t be afraid to play around with whatever works for you to make this style your own!

 

HOURGLASS SHAPE Busty, slim waist and wide hips. Girl, you can wear anything cut. However, this style specifically will enhance that tiny waist especially a pair that cinches in at the middle. For an extra slender look, choose a statement belt to accessorize.

 

PEAR SHAPE Pear shapes usually carry weight at the hips, back, and legs. To give the illusion of smaller hips, pick out a pair that tapers in at the knee and has a slight flare from the knee to the bottom. Mid-rise are always best if you want that long leg effect, high waist will do the opposite. Proportions are key.

 

APPLE SHAPE Apple shapes tend to carry weight in the mid-section. This is why a higher rise of flared jeans is best for you. A narrower flare will provide just the right fit and accentuate your curves.

 

PETITE SHAPE Petite girls look great in well-fitted flare pants. Avoid baggy ones as they may be too overwhelming for your small frame. Heels can be worn for a taller look.

 

Product list:

1. Paige, Denim slim jeans, $110, available at 6PM

2. McGuire, ripped jeans, $210, available at PIPERLIME

3. Hudson, distressed jeans, $70, available at 6PM

Fashion Jobs – 5 Workwear Don’ts

Tuesday, October 14th, 2014

 

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs title

I’ve worked in offices with a very relaxed dress code and offices where it was mandatory to dress professionally. In both settings, there was always that one person who clearly did not get the memo of what is at the very least office appropriate. It does not matter what sort of dress code is allowed in the office, there are still a few things you should never wear to work. Here’s a list of the top 5 worst offenders.

Fashion Jobs – Fashion Career Advice: No Competition

Thursday, October 9th, 2014

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs

20141009-960486208_1The fashion industry is often noted as being highly competitive in nature. And while the actual availability of jobs may reflect just that, the sense of competition and the feelings of stress that are often associated with it are arguably self-induced. It’s impossible to control the external happenings around us, but what we can control is our own self development. When it comes to landing your dream job, think of the process as less a competition with every other candidate, and more as a personal challenge. Having seen it all, Christie’s here to shed some light in regards to how a competition mindset may actually be hindering your professional growth.

 

Christie:  There will be stylists more fashionable then you, journalists smarter than you, that’s ok, that doesn’t mean there’s no room for you. It’s not a competition. I’ve always said this. No matter how great you believe yourself to be at something, there will always be someone that can do the same thing a little (or a lot) better than you can. While that realization may be disheartening, it is in no way a sign that there’s no room for you in the professional playing field. The moment you start focusing your energies on what are considered uncontrollable, such as the other candidates you may be up against for a job opening, is the moment you’ve just done yourself a great disservice. Rather than worrying about what others can and cannot do, focus on what you can do and how you can improve upon your own skill-sets. The only real competition is with yourself, and a motto I live by is simply, “do you.”

 

We all move forward in our own time, which means some people may get to the same destination before you do. That’s okay! You know yourself the best, and if you need an extra few years to build up your repertoire, don’t feel as if you’ve failed. If I had started Style Nine to Five at 25 instead of 30, it probably wouldn’t have been as successful a venture or successful at all for that matter. The knowledge that I acquired in the 5 years were completely necessary to get me to where I am today. I’ve made many mistakes along the way, and I still have plenty of things to figure out. Regardless, day by day, I learn a bit more than the previous day, and I wouldn’t trade that time in for anything. Given how precious time is, every moment I spend comparing myself to someone else is wasted time that I could have spent on furthering my own development. Remember, you are your own worst enemy, and the moment you free yourself from the self-doubt is the moment you’ve just opened a world of possibilities.

Fashion Jobs – Festive Thanksgiving Style

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs CanadaTHANKSGIVING

Like many others, I love and look forward to the holidays. I love cocoa by the fire, spending time with family, and expanding my waist-size with hearty helpings of turkey. One of my favourite parts of the holiday season though has always been the playful and silly fashion that comes along with it. I believe that you should always have fun with your style, but during the holidays I really play it up with goofy pieces like a turkey printed sweater or moose printed pajamas.

 

THANKSGIVING 1

UGLY SWEATER GOES PLAYFULLY PRETTY:

Just because you rock a so-called “ugly sweater” doesn’t mean you have to look just as silly! Pair it with a cute pair of cords, some cranberry toned heels, and bold statement earrings for a playfully look.

 

CUTE IN CRANBERRY

In my opinion, you just can’t go wrong with rich cranberry tones during the holiday season. Cranberry, burgundy and crimson all have such a festively warm air to them and they pair perfectly with other autumnal colour’s like olive greens, burnt oranges and golden yellows.
