Fashion Jobs – Gift Guide for the Stylish Career Woman

Monday, December 11th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canadab96a5a5c90d3c0c1ae743605a9da68fe

Gift shopping always takes time and patience but it’s also a challenge in trying to find that one item that will put a huge smile on someone’s face. Finding a gift for that stylish career woman can take a little bit more thought and time but we are here to help and guide you through the process, and hopefully, shopping will be more fun this holiday season. Some might think the stylish career woman would enjoy a blouse or something work-related, but there are many gifts that she would love that are both exciting and useful in her busy life. Here are our top picks for your gal!

The “IT” Clutch
We have seen it all over our Instagram and constantly debate with ourselves if we should buy it or not. Well, since we do love it but can’t seem to commit, this is the ultimate gift to give your fashion-forward lady this holiday season. The weave basket clutch will be a great staple to wear in the spring and summer to work events or on a casual weekend.

Screen Shot 2017-12-11 at 11.01.59 AM

On The Go
The stylish career woman is always on the go, from meetings uptown to the airport catching a flight to a business conference. She needs to look put together but still comfortable while trying to be at two places at once. This gorgeous Madewell scarf will be her go to wherever she goes. It’s a great travel piece to keep close by and will complement any outfit.

Wallet Free
The career woman’s bag is her holy grail; everything she needs is in it and it goes with her everywhere. She can’t imagine her life without her purse, but sometimes the thought of carrying the heavy luggage around is tiresome and exhausting. That’s why this stylish cardholder is a great gift. She can throw it in her bag or on weekends when she can go purse free or carry it when leaving the office to grab a coffee. Either way, it is a useful and practical gift she will love.

Screen Shot 2017-12-11 at 11.04.10 AM

Face Refresher
Since we already know our stylish career gal is always on the go and does the most she can in her day, she will perhaps need a mid-day refresher.  A woman often brings a few cosmetics with her just in case, but sometimes having your makeup all over your bag is frustrating. That’s why this all in one palette is super chic and a must have for a busy woman.

Screen Shot 2017-12-11 at 11.05.47 AM

Hand Fashion
With the winter season brings winter accessories, and our stylish woman loves a great pair of gloves to go with her chic outerwear pieces. These leather gloves are feminine and sophisticated, yet edgy with the pleated trim and pearl studs to take her from the office to her evening business dinner.

Retail Jobs – 5 Runway-Ready Holiday Trends

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canadad95e3c4030c4356ad0bb025395c927ea

Answering the age-old question of what to wear can seem daunting, especially during the holiday season. With all the stress that comes along with hosting parties and shopping for the perfect gifts, getting dressed can sometimes feel like another dreaded task at this time of the year. To make things easier, here are five of the biggest runway trends for Fall/Winter 2017 that can easily be translated into appropriate party wear.

Image 1

Glam Suiting
For the ladies out there who aren’t fans of getting dolled up in party dresses or skirts, this trend is for you. The Glen Check is definitely having its moment in the style spotlight, with plenty of wardrobe options available on the market right now. Pair a plaid suit with a silky blouse for an outfit that works just as well in the boardroom as it does for a holiday dinner.

Velvet
Always on rotation in classic holiday dressing, velvet is making a major comeback for Fall/Winter 2017. From blazers to trousers, and suits to t-shirts, it’s easier than ever to incorporate this luxe fabric into your wardrobe. The opulent look and feel of velvet doesn’t need much to dress it up, so add a pair of sparkly earrings and a simple pair of pumps and you’re set.

Shop the look for less: Cold Shoulder Velvet Midi Dress, $175, available at Nordstrom

Glitter & Gold
With this trend (as with most), a little can go a long way. Rather than looking like a human disco ball, add a little sparkle to any outfit with some choice accessories. A glittery clutch or pair of heels will add just the right amount of sparkle to any festive occasion.

Classic Red
Not for the faint of heart, red is the bold colour choice of the season. Seen across the runways and on dozens of street style looks, a vibrant shade of red will have you sure to stand out at any holiday party.

Shop the look for less: Sheer Pintuck Printed Blouse, $68 available at Topshop

Winter Florals
Though typically thought of as a springtime pattern, floral prints can bring a breath of fresh air into tired winter wardrobes. To make your florals feel winter ready, look for patterns set against a dark background, like charcoal or navy. Any holiday occasion is the perfect excuse to break out a chic floral print!

Fashion Jobs – Brunette The Label Officially Opens the Doors to it’s Flagship Vancouver Store

Tuesday, December 5th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaBrunette the Label

Local Vancouver brand, Brunette the Label has officially opened the doors to its first flagship store on Union Street in Chinatown. This is the brand’s first stand-alone store, expanding its outlet from online and other retailers.

Brunette the Label

Beginning in 2014 as a marketing tool for owner Miriam Alden’s sister brand, Brunette Showroom, the classic “Brunette” crewneck sweater was born. With so many curious customers inquiring about where and how to purchase the sweater, she decided to create 12 more and the concept rapidly popularized. With impressive marketing and social media combined with easy to wear items, it appealed to a wide group of customers, helping the brand grow steadily and organically in the last few years.

Brunette the Label

Brunette the Label is now sold in 40 different Nordstrom locations and 300 independent retailers all over Canada, the United States and one store in London, England.

Brunette the Label

The flagship Brunette the Label store will have the latest collections available, carrying charming and casual lines of crewnecks, hoodies, pants, t-shirts and accessories such as their signature “Rosé Okay” and “This Wine is Making Me Awesome”. I can definitely relate!

Brunette the Label

Owner, Miriam says she wanted to open a stand-alone location to “hear what our customers think of the products and give them the opportunity to try on the clothing!” It’s also a way for the brand to demonstrate that customer service and how they make people feel remain part of their core values. “We felt to truly do this we needed to be able to connect with our customers face to face.”

Brunette the Label

We love this company for their ability to demonstrate their passion for an inclusive community of women lifting each other up. Or as their adorable (and super comfy!) crewneck sweater puts it, “Babes Supporting Babes”. Designed at their headquarters in Vancouver, BC, Brunette the Label has cornered the market on a generation of women wanting to be comfortable in what we’re wearing while still looking good and representing an important message.

Brunette the Label

We’re thrilled to see the brand continue to develop and broaden their reach to loyal and new “babes” that love their product. We can’t wait to have the opportunity to shop the new collections in the very first flagship Brunette the Label store!

Fashion Jobs – Styling Your Winter Boots

Thursday, November 30th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaSTYLING WINTER BOOTS

Most people think winter boots and just dread them. Memories of tacky boots with snow pants as a child just can’t be erased, and no matter what you just can’t bring yourself to wearing them. The reality is unless you want to spend the day with soggy feet here in most parts of Canada, you can’t avoid owning at least one pair of winter weather boots. We’re not a big fan of trading style for practicality so we’ve got our guide to help you wear your boots in style!

SNTF - STYLING WINTER BOOTS - OVER THE KNEE

Over The Knee
Not every winter day calls for heavy-duty footwear, but stylish footwear can also help keep you warm and we love our over the knee boots for exactly that reason. They go great with everything from riding pants to dresses and can even dress up leggings. We love wearing them with our favourite wool coats for a cozy and chic look.

SNTF - STYLING WINTER BOOTS - COLD WEATHER

Heave Duty Weather
Bundling up for cold snowy days doesn’t mean you have to look ridiculous. These Pajar winter boots are waterproof and will still keep you warm even with their slim design. Nothing completes this look more than a big winter parka, mittens and an iconic trapper hat!

Winter Boots

Comfortable and Cozy
Not everyone is into the casual style of UGGs but once you put a pair on, we dare you to take them off. These Australian sheepskin boots are ridiculously warm, and comfortable. They’re perfect for colder, dry days with less snow and go great with pretty much everything from leggings to jeans. We love wearing our UGGs with a warm flannel and parka for running errands like grocery shopping or getting that Christmas shopping done!

SNTF - STYLING WINTER BOOTS - STREETSTYLE

Casual Snow Day
If last winter was any proof, Timberlands are not just your boyfriend’s winter boot anymore. The Classic Timberland made a huge comeback in style last year, and this year is no exception either. Paired with this season’s hottest outerwear piece – the puffer jacket, we love this look for hanging out on a Sunday or worst case shoveling our driveways.

SNTF - STYLING WINTER BOOTS - CHELSEA BOOTS

Wintering In Style
When we don’t have to worry about tall snowbanks Chelsea boots are our go-to for winter! They’re a must-have in any fashionistas closet as they go great with everything from trousers to dress and if worn right even sweatpants! Paired with a sweet sheepskin moto and baker boy cap, you’ll make even the biggest beach bums envy your winter style!

Fashion Jobs – 5 Questions to Ask at an Interview to Land the Job

Monday, November 27th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canadaback-to-work-checked-blazer-outfit-formula-influencers-660x400

We’ve all been there before, you’re at an interview and you know you’re going to be asked: “do you have any questions for me?” The table’s turn and you’re asked to be the interviewer to the employer. This moment can work to your benefit, instead of being dreaded. Use these five questions to help you grasp a better insight of your budding future job and make a statement that can turn it into reality.

 

1. Describe the day-to-day tasks that are included in the role?
I’m sure you’ve read over the job posting, rehearsed the qualifications and compared them to the shining star that you are. However, this is a chance for them to give you the inside scoop on the role, and fill you in on anything that wasn’t listed on the application. It’s also an opportunity to discover the layout of the office, see who you would be reporting to or working side by side. It’s an easier way for you to visualize your future daily routine and if it’s the right fit.  

 

2. What type of qualities would you like to see in someone excelling in the position?
You’re obviously awesome, not to mention who wouldn’t want you on their team? This is your chance to boost your confidence and compare yourself to the role. You might walk into the interview knowing “you got this” or vice versa and shocked you were selected for a meet and greet. All skills aside, at every workplace it comes down to the personality. This is an opportunity to make your personality shine and relate their expectations to yourself. For instance, bring up a moment where you’ve problem solved or multi-tasks at work.

 

3. Describe the company culture?
A great way to picture yourself in a place is to have them explain to you what makes it so great! Your important and a solid investment into the company. Dig in and find the information you need to see if your new workplace fits as your second home. Because we all know it: regardless of where you work, it’s going to become your secondary residence. Discover their values, what makes them unique and overall aura of staff (aka your new co-workers).

 

4. What do you love most about working for the company and your position?
You’ll most likely be interviewed by your potential superior or the founder of the company. Regardless it’ll be someone who has been with the company for years and can share why they’re passionate about the purpose of their role. You can grab a glimpse of the interviewer’s background and how they made it to where they are now. This can be very motivational, to discover someone else’s success and career path.

 

5. What is the potential career growth for someone in this role?
We all think about our future with a workplace and if we can see long-term happiness. Your skills are important and your hard work should most definitely be recognized. Now is the time to see how you could grow within the company, and how to receive a greater role that can prosper your career.

Retail Jobs – Think You’re in a Retail Rut? Need a Change?

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaChristie Lohr - Style Nine to Five

 

Not so fast. I truly believe retail can be a career! Store Managers can make upwards of $75-90K. I was once a Store Manager myself and can honestly say it was one of my favourite times in my life. Loved the buzz on a busy Saturday, the joy in customer’s faces when they found an amazing outfit and creating a little team/family that motivated me just as much as I motivated them.

 

Your job is also what you make it. Whenever I felt dissatisfied at my job in retail, I re-invented myself and my role. I added things to it that fulfilled me. If you’re not happy, it’s up to you, not your boss.

 

When I’m recruiting for Store Manager positions, what I’ve also noticed is as I reach out to current Store Managers about other job opportunities, a lot of them are saying, “Thanks for reaching out but I’m looking to work at a Head Office, or I want to switch to a Sales Rep position, or I’m looking to get into a different field of retail.” I get that too. For them I say, visit www.styleninetofive.com for SO MANY JOBS in different areas of fashion and retail. So at least I have an answer for them!

Fashion Jobs – Fashion Holiday Gift Ideas for Him & Her

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canadagiftgiving

It’s officially the holiday season! Christmas is fast approaching and we are currently dealing with one of the most mentally exhausting dilemmas of the year – gift giving. Let’s face it: we’ve come to the point where we usually have to ask a person what they desire for the holidays and they don’t provide us with a straight answer. Unless they don’t mind anything that’s handmade, it’s generally difficult to shop for a person who has no idea what they want especially when you’re on a strict budget and there are many retail promotions happening around.  This short guide provides a few gift ideas for Him and Her that will not only help narrow down your potential options but also are justifiable and practical for many occasions!

For Him

mgift1

Cashmere Scarf
With the temperature gradually decreasing, it obviously never hurts to buy him a practical scarf especially when it’s cashmere. Because men typically like it “quick and easy”, scarves are one of the simplest go-to pieces that you can give for the holidays.

 

Shop the look: Kensington Cashmere Scarf, $119, available at Club Monaco

mgift2

Crew or V-Neck Sweater
To ensure he looks his best every day at work, get him a crew or V-neck sweater for a layered office look! This piece is ideal with a button-up or even a turtleneck!

 

Shop the look: V-neck Merino Wool Jumper, $59.99, available at H&M

mgift3

Long-sleeve Shirt
A man can never have too many long-sleeve shirts. They are worn practically every day for the office and are good transitional pieces especially if they need to attend a night occasion. Now that it is the holiday season, it’d be feasible to stack such pieces for all those parties they’re invited to.

 

Shop the look: Twill Shirt with Short Point Collar, $49.90, available at Zara

 

For Her

wgift1

Turtleneck Sweater
Many women consider turtlenecks as one of the key winter basics as they coordinate well with many pieces and are sensible for the cold seasons.

 

Shop the look: Julie Ribbed Turtleneck, &69, available at Club Monaco

wgift2 (1)

Leggings
Used typically throughout the year, leggings are very popular because of their form-fitting property and elasticity. They are also good layering pieces, particularly underneath a dress or skirt.


Shop the look: Faux Leather Leggings, $39.99, available at H&M

wgift3

Jewellery
The holidays are all about the glam, therefore, you can never go wrong with gifting her some chic accessories! Numerous trending earrings are perfect for formal or semi-formal gatherings such as the pom bons or tassel earrings.

 

Shop the look: Cascading Fringe Earrings, $17.90, available at Zara

Fashion Jobs – 5 Fresh Ways to Wear a Striped Shirt This Fall

Tuesday, November 21st, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canadastripe inspo

Stripes always bring out the inner cool French girl in all of us, and sometimes we just need to add a little Parisian flair to our wardrobe. Parisian street style is always a touch of masculine with a dash of classic mixed with some edge, and voila, you end up having the ultimate French-inspired look. Stripes are a wardrobe essential and closet favorite. Just like the white button down and skinny jeans, it is a staple you can wear all year long and overall carries a classy and polished look. It is a neutral in the world of prints and is the easiest pairing with other prints and colors. The outfit possibilities with stripes are endless, and we have rounded up a few of our top put together looks.    

stripe blazer

Layers
Fall brings on the layers and a change in wardrobe. It is the perfect time to play with textures and prints for both in and out of the office. Pairing a stripe knit top with a blazer gives off a relaxed but smart look that is easy to wear for work and a chic weekend.

striped turtleneck

Turtleneck
Turtlenecks are a cold weather long sleeve top that we all have in every colour. They are great layering pieces for under jackets, sweaters, dresses – the list goes on. We particularly love the thinner fabrics in the stripe print giving a nautical feel to any outfit.

stripe color1

Colour
When it comes to stripes we mostly gravitate towards a solid white, navy, or black base with a complementary stripe colour. But while neutrals are a must-have in all our wardrobes, exploring other colours is fun and adds personality to your outfit. Colour is an unexpected to wear different coloured stripes, while still having a high fashion feel. Not to mention coloured stripes give us a total Carrie Bradshaw vibe.

stripe knit

Chunky Knit
All we want to wear this time of year is chunky knits in all variations. There is not a better or cozier feeling than being wrapped in a sweater on a winter day. With stripes, you can play with colour and adds a playful element to your outfit while still looking sophisticated.

Screen Shot 2017-11-17 at 11.49.15 AM

Striped Blouse
The classic pinstripe blouse is our go to and it’s likely there is one sitting in your closet right now. Sometimes our pieces get outdated and we just need an update whether that means investing in a new piece or wearing it differently. We love the oversized masculine look on women. Not only is it the most comfortable it’s sexy and flirty.

Fashion Jobs – Cozy & Stylish Cardis For The Office

Monday, November 20th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaCosy & Stylish Cardigans For The Office_Inspiration

 

The minute those leaves start falling and that air gets crisp, it’s cardigan season! A classic layering piece that never truly goes out of style, cardigans come in so many different cuts, lengths, and materials. Cardigans make the best type of layer sweater for the office as they’re easily taken off and don’t need to be pulled over the head, often causing static (a.k.a one of the biggest style faux-pas known to mankind) once those heaters go on. We plan on staying, cozy, cute and static free this year at the office with our favourite cardigans of the season!

 

styleninetofive_oakandfortcardigan1553

The “Jackardigan”
Especially on a cold Monday morning, who wouldn’t want to wrap themselves pretty much head to toe in comfort? Yes, this cardigan is THAT long. It’s got a great belted back that adds some style and structure to this cozy piece, and pockets which are always key when you’re at work. We love this number from Oak + Fort in brown, but it’s also available in black and khaki.

 

Shop the Look: Oak + Fort Cardigan 1553, $128

styleninetofive_openingceremoneyoffwhiteocvarsitycardigan

Patchwork
Opening Ceremony definitively did Varsity right this season and this 50/50 blend wool sweater is no exception. It’s a classic cardigan style which really goes well with everything from slacks to skirts and even jeans or a dress. Again, this style also has pockets which are super handy when you’re running to meetings with pens, phones and whatever else you’re scrambling to balance. Just be careful not to get any coffee or pen marks on you!

 

Shop the Look: Opening Ceremony Off-White OC Varsity Cardigan, $395, available at ssense.com

styleninetofive_zaraherringbonecardiganwithbelt

Trendy & Cozy
Leave it to Zara to take one of this season’s hottest prints – grey herringbone – and bring it to us in ultimate comfort. We love this cardigan for so many reasons but mainly for its belted waist and thick but structured and not bulky knit. We see this cardigan going great on its own with a basic Tee, leggings, and thigh-high boots, or over a blouse with dress pants for a blazer look.

 

Shop the Look: Zara Herringbone Cardigan with Belt, $99.90

styleninetofive_bdgcharliedolmancardigan

Easy Does It
Everyone needs at least one chunky knit cardigan, in whatever style you choose. We thought this BDG one was perfect to leave at the office as your go-to cardigan when you forget one at home, or on those surprisingly chillier days.

A Canadian Classic
If you’re a cardigan aficionado, you probably either have this or need this in your closet. This Hudson’s Bay Company Wrap Cardigan has a pin closure front and is a wool/nylon/cashmere blend. We love this Canadian classic worn with either joggers at the cottage in late fall or at work with a great slack and loafer.
