If you choose to wear a lot of fringe, it may be best to keep the rest of your look neutral, just to ensure you are keeping fringe as the focus.

Fringe is a great way to add a pop of interest to your wardrobe, and since there are many different ways to wear it, everyone will be able to find a piece that suits their personal style.

After all your major presents have been purchased, it can be difficult to think of little items that will go in a stocking. The challenge is that you don’t want to spend too much money on these items, but at the same time, you want these presents to be heartfelt and fabulous.

Getting someone stocking stuffers that will make them feel warm and cozy is always a great way to go. Picking up slippers, some comfy pajamas or a beautiful scarf will always be a hit. If you’re buying for someone who is more fashion forward, then a bedazzled phone case or some geometric earrings may be the perfect gift in her stocking.

When buying little presents to fill a stocking, it really is the thought that counts and these gifts are just little additions to the main (present) event. When looking for small gifts, there are many options to help take the pressure off Santa, and make you look like a superstar.

1. H&M iPhone 4/4S Case, $6.95

2. Victoria’s Secret Fireside Ballet Slipper, $25.00

3. Forever 21Bunny Parade PJ Shorts, $9.80

4. Old Navy Women’s Monogram-Graphic Mittens, $5.00

5. Aldo Accessories VALEYN, $10.00

6. Forever 21 Lace Bow Thong, $3.80

Finding the perfect outfit for a job interview in the winter can be a little difficult, especially when staying warm is a main concern. Piling on sweaters can look disorganized and unprofessional, however the key is finding the right medium. An ensemble taking both style and practicality into account is the ideal goal. Unfortunately, we aren’t so lucky to live in year-round tropical weather and are forced to get creative when the temperatures drop. However, this fall/winter season, a few practical trends have surfaced. One of my personal favourites is the runway-ready oversized wool coat. Mango’s seasonal collection included the affordable textured wool-blend oversized coat at an affordable $79.95. The oversized coat gives a semi-formal, semi-casual look and can be paired with any outfit. Another popular trend this season is the printed pencil skirt; luckily warmth this season won’t be compromised since conservative is the new sexy. Zara’s collection includes a few skirts with gorgeous and unique patterns, the bright blue print pencil skirt sold at $69.90. The bold statement piece can be topped with one of H&M basics, the black long sleeved chiffon blouse at $49.95. These pieces can be easily mixed and matched, and customized to your own style by adding your favourite pumps or accessory. This outfit is suitable for any job interview and is sure to give an amazing first impression, if not land you that coveted position.

1. H&M Beige Chiffon Blouse,  $49.95

2. Mango Oversized Wool-Blend Coat ,$79.90

3. Zara Oversized coat, $119.00

4. Zara Pattern skirt, $69.90

5. H&M Black Chiffon Shirt, $49.95

6. Le Chateau Leather-like Skirt, $59.95

In this fast paced society, we sometimes find ourselves going from one commitment to another without any time to change. Whether they’re last minute plans or something I’ve known about for weeks, I usually have the plan my outfit for the day accordingly, especially now that the holiday season is right around the corner. With all the parties and events coming up you’ll barely have time to breathe let alone change, this is why work to play outfits and accessories are so popular nowadays. Nothing is worse than having to meet some friends after work or school and being completely underdressed or overdressed. This week I’ve rounded up some of my favorite day to play bags to share with our style nine to five readers. Trot these purses around all day then let them transition into the evening hours.

1. Nine West fold over bag Hudson’s Bay

Montreal Fashion Jobs – Shoulder to Shoulder

In a world where showing cleavage and midriffs is considered sexy, this fall, there is a new body part that is stealing the show: shoulders.

The demure look of the sexy shoulder has been represented in many different ways. Some retailers are opting to use mesh around the collar area, whereas others have completely removed the material that would cover the shoulders. This is a look that is sensual in the most casual of ways. The bit of exposed shoulder will turn any outfit into a piece that is ready for a night out. The only issue with a sexy shoulder is that you need to have an appropriate bra. However, once you find a strapless that is comfortable, you’ll be able to wear this look with ease.

This fall, looking demurely sexy can be easy just by adding an exposed shoulder to your wardrobe.

1. Forever 21 Romantic Crochet Lace Pullover, $21.80

2. Urban Outfitters Sparkle & Fade Cozy Cold-Shoulder Top, $44.00

3. H&M Mess Dress, $29.95

4. Zara Sweater with Transparent Panel at Side, $54.90

5. Free People Open Shoulder Cross Back Tunic, $173.61

6. Nasty Gal Total Stud Blouse-Cream, $48.00
