Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canadahat inspo

The most favoured season has finally arrived and we can hardly wait for all the stunning fall fashion looks we’re going to try. With cooler temperatures comes better hair days and more opportunities for our sense of fashion to shine, and we have rounded up a few must-try hat trends to add street cred to all your fall looks. These aren’t hats to wear when you have a bad hair day and need something to cover up- on the contrary, hats are a major staple for this season, and must be worn as you would a coveted accessory. Keeping warm while still looking on trend will be effortless for you after you get some inspiration for your next shopping trip.

Bucket Hat
The bucket hat has resurrected from the ’90s and we love this comeback. It was unexpected at first, but we love the way it has been styled from preppy to grunge. You are the ultimate cool-girl rocking this vintage look with a crisp button-down dress and boots that will surely inspire others to try this trend as well.

Newsboy Cap
We have seen the newsboy cap make its introduction this year on the runways and it’s the style you need to own. Seen on many bloggers and fashion influencers, the newsboy cap has been reinvented from its newsboy era into high fashion.

Floppy Hat
Who doesn’t feel like Jennifer Lopez when they throw on their floppy hat and a pair of knee-high boots? A floppy hat is an automatic confidence booster and looks amazing in all sizes. It’s a relaxed look and such a saviour when you want to go incognito with large frames for a weekend stroll.


The fedora is a great hat to start with when exploring and experimenting with hats. It suits most face shapes and hairstyles and it really works with every outfit style. It is a versatile piece and will be your go-to fall staple when in doubt.


Un béret s’il vous plaît ! Every woman has owned a beret at one point in her life and it is a style that has been around for years. It is the ultimate French fashion staple and it brings an elegance and grace to every outfit pairing. Even though it is a classic piece, choosing a different color can definitely bring the edge to an outfit.

Vancouver Fashion Jobs – What to Pack for a Tropical Trip

Thursday, February 28th, 2013

With March around the corner, Spring Break is in the air and many of us are packing our bags for a holiday in the sun. Packing can cause quite the conundrum (for me, it’s narrowing down shoes), but to beat the heat, the old adage ‘less is more’ applies. The key is versatility: your items have to work double time to take you from the beach to cocktail hour. I’ve narrowed it down to twelve holiday essentials to make packing a breeze:

A dress that will take you from day to night: As an LA based label, PJK makes great pieces for the sun, and this dress is no exception. Part of the exclusive collaboration with the Man Repeller’s Leandra Medine, this cream frock is a poly silk blend to flatter your figure and maintain your cool.

Sunglasses: A great pair of shades are a must-have for anyone (fashion oriented, or not) and Karen Walker’s shades are as glam as you can go. A favourite of Atlantic-Pacific’s Blair Eadie, these gems take basic beach attire to the next level.

Beach Cover Up: Tunics are an essential piece to pack. They can stand-alone and still look good.

A Floppy Hat: SPF is only one way to protect your skin from the sun, so a wide brimmed hat is both functional and fashionable.

A Good Beach Tote: Club Monaco’s preppy resort collection offered a plethora of great items this season, and the balance of Breton stripes and paisley print on this tote, is equal parts bohemian and nautical.

A lightweight blouse: Finding a versatile shirt that works in humid climates is hard to come by. This piece by Zara will match with shorts or high-waisted skirts, and pair well under a denim jacket.

A cozy wrap: Even hot climates can get chilly, but this Community Ionic Cape has got you covered for chilly evenings and air-conditioned plane rides.

Denim Jacket: Jackets can take up a lot of room in your suitcase; so if you need to narrow it down, choose a cropped denim piece. They pair well over dresses or shorts for sightseeing or evening cocktails.

A printed scarf: Accessories are easy ways to transform your outfit (especially if you are re-wearing the same pieces).

A Bikini: Presumably, you won’t narrow it down to just one, but if you do, opt for a strapless piece to save you from bad tan lines. This season, ruffles are big, and coming in around $100, this suit tops the trend at a reasonable price.


A pair of cuffed shorts: While cutoffs are an easy piece to pack, opt for durability when packing shorts. The Dillon style from T. Babaton will take you to the city, the beach or the bar.

A pair of wedges or espadrilles: Essential to take you to cocktail hour. Wedges are easy and they match well with almost everything, plus they offer comfort too.
