Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canadaa0d133cfe45cb5c49af7f91499fe09a0

Yorkville Hosts Toronto Fashion Week
The three-day event was held in Toronto’s Yorkville Village, marking the first time this fall/winter fashion week has taken place inside a shopping centre. Several brands held pop-ups inside the centre, giving consumers the chance to purchase designer’s goods fresh off the runway. The large shopping mall was transformed into a unique space including a large runway, a lounge and open spaces for guests to mingle. A diverse variety of designers were showcased through runway shows, studio presentations, interviews and pop-ups such as Gersha Phillips, Bojana Sentaler, Narces, Hilary MacMillan and Mani Jassal.  

 

Christian Dior Expands in Vancouver
As Vancouver’s Holt Renfrew continues with updates and renovations, the Christian Dior boutique is the most recent to undertake changes. The expansion of the space makes it the largest Dior accessory boutique in the country. The new location is immediate to the left from Holt’s Granville entrance, drawing attention upon arrival. Offering a much larger space and an exclusive “Lady Dior” handbag could offer the luxury store an advantage over competition from other large retailers carrying Dior in the area.  

 

Designer Shoe Warehouse to open 3 new Canadian locations
Ontario will be welcoming two new DSW stores along with one in Edmonton this coming spring. The addition of these three Canadian locations will bring this well-liked shoe company to 27 stores nationally. All three stores will feature the DSW kids and accessories lines. The two Ontario locations are expected to open on March 1st, one in Trinity Commons and the other in RioCan Durham Centre. Edmonton will follow not far behind, opening to an excited public at the Premium Outlet Collection in Edmonton International Airport on May 2nd 

 

Stores gearing up to celebrate Year of the Dog
Many retailers are celebrating this Lunar New Year – the Year of the Dog, hosting events and honouring traditions. Nordstrom in Vancouver’s Pacific Centre will be graced by “Lucky the Lion” for a colourful performance today on Level 1. Oakridge Centre is kicking off their fourth annual Lunar Fest with figurines built by artists with Year of the Dog influence. The cute and cuddly figurines will be placed in storefront windows for the duration of the event and will be for sale after February 25th, with proceeds being donated to the SPCA.  

 

Highlights from NYFW 

  • Alexander Wang announces this will be his last time showing his fall collection in February 
  • Marc Jacobs delivers a boldly coloured, 80s inspired show  
  • Gabriela Hearst nods #MeToo movement with exceptionally “boss lady” pieces 
  • Michael Kors presents F/W 2018 with an all ages, all shapes, all sizes, all backgrounds cast on the runway 
  • Telfar Clemens hands it over to fans and gives the opportunity to vote on which pieces from his collection should be produced

Fashion Jobs – 7 Winter Outfits to Steal from New York Fashion Week Style Stars

Friday, February 16th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaMain Image

It’s late winter, and if you’re feeling the same way I currently am then you may be hitting a bit of a style rut. It can be tough to get creative with your wardrobe when it feels like spring is nowhere in sight, so why not look to street style’s best for some outfit inspiration? The following photos showcase some of New York Fashion Week’s most stylish ladies to help us get through the last weeks of Winter 2018.

Street Style 1

  1. Sticking to shades of neutral greys and blacks, this casual but stylish look would keep you warm on even the toughest days of a Canadian winter. A chunky scarf worn under a plaid coat can get bulky, so counter that with a waist-cinching belt like the woman pictured here (or a belt bag if you’re feeling brave!).Street Style 2
  2. Some things never go out of style, and this outfit is a great example of those pieces. With wardrobe staples like a simple turtleneck, a pair of black jeans, and a classic camel overcoat, you have an outfit formula that can be worn on repeat for seasons to come. Just add a pair of aviator sunglasses and a red lip, and you’re Fashion Week ready!Street Style 3
  3. If you’re looking for a way to spice up your winter wardrobe, then a statement coat in a vibrant hue is a great alternative to standard neutral tones. Worn over contrasting colours, this matching coat and handbag combo makes a big impact no matter where you’re heading this winter.Street Style 4
  4. Berets are definitely having a moment, and this outfit makes a strong case for matching your beret to your other accessories – lips included. Another cozy outfit idea to take from this look? A teddy-bear faux-fur coat truly goes with anything.Street Style 5
  5. A window-pane plaid can easily be worn to the office throughout the winter, but why not update your suits with edgy accessories? A pair of chunky boots and a colourful bag transform this look from office-ready to cool-girl chic in no time at all.Street Style 6
  6. Athleisure seems to be here to stay, but Kendall Jenner goes for full glam-leisure in this Adidas tracksuit outfit. To get Kendall’s look, opt for white mules and futuristic shades to make sure that nobody confuses your outfit with gym clothes.Street Style 7
  7. As we’ve discussed on the Style Nine to Five blog before, Ultraviolet is Pantone’s colour of the year and shades of purple will be seen everywhere. Rather than a deep violet, experiment with pastel shades for a monochromatic look that’s equal parts sweet and stylish.

Fashion Jobs – Trend Alert: Stripes

Thursday, February 15th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canadastripes

Similar to polka dots, stripes are one of the most recurring prints in the domain of fashion trends. Vertical or horizontal, wide or slim, stripes are universal and timeless. Even if you’re an individual who shies away from prints, there is still a good chance that you will wear lines once in your life. To fashion experts, stripes are generally considered neutrals because of their versatility. They are so versatile they can be coordinated with other prints and are appropriate for practically any occasion. The comeback of stripes this year timed perfectly with the end of the winter approaching, which is an implication to prep our wardrobe for the warmer seasons ahead! To further hype you up for spring and summer, check out some of these chic striped pieces that are suitable for any outfit!

stripes2

Striped Top
As if wearing a striped top isn’t a stand out enough, wear one with ruffles or fringe to exude total sophistication like this top from Club Monaco. Also, don’t be daunted to wear horizontal stripes because they exhibit as much style as vertical stripes.


Shop the look: Roverbs Top, $188, available at Club Monaco

stripes3

Striped Bottoms
Wearing striped pants can be intimidating as it provides more coverage. Two advantages of wearing lines beneath are: they make your legs look a mile long and they instantly dress an outfit up. Coordinate them with a basic top for a balanced look or if you’re adventurous enough, wear a different printed top.

 

Shop the look: Stripe Trousers, $49.90, available at Zara

stripes4

Striped Dress
Like striped pants, striped dresses also have the tendency to elongate the body, especially if they go past the knee. Make sure to coordinate with basic accessories to harmonize your overall look.


Shop the look: Fitted Dress, $39.99, available at H&M

stripes5

Stiped Accessories
Again, if you need that quick statement pop in your outfit, a striped accessory is your friend.

 

Shop the look: Skinny Striped Silk Scarf, $25.56 available at J.Crew

Fashion Jobs – 5 Styles To Get You Rocking the Red Boot Trend

Wednesday, February 14th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaSNTF_RedBoots_Inspiration Image Street Style

A few months ago we talked the white boot trend which is still going strong even through the winter -especially as we look through the street style from Fashion Week season! But make room on your shoe rack because red boots are coming in just as hot. This bold colour choice can be a bit intimidating at first especially on a shoe but we guarantee the minute you put on a pair, you’ll be feeling like there are no boots like red ones!

 

There really isn’t anything that red boots don’t look good with; from leopard print and camo to denim and leather, many don’t realize that red can be treated just like a neutral when it comes to pairing it with other colours and prints. If you’re feeling brave and looking to score your first (or next) pair of red boots, check out these great styles we just cannot decide over.

STNF_Red Boots_Jeffrey Campbell Siren Bootie

On With A Bang
If you’re going to go red you might as well go big and these Jeffrey Campbell patent booties are it! These pretties have a high enough heel making them great for a night out with your girls but with its flared block style, it means they’re also perfect for running quick errands or a Saturday shopping trip to the mall. This style is a bit bold so they might not be for everyone, but for an edgier fashionista, these should be a dream!

SNTF_Red Boots_AnnieBing_Stevie Boot

The Must Have Booties
Have you been seeing pretty much everyone wearing the most adorable booties on the ‘gram? You’re probably swooning over the Stevie boots by Annie Bing and honestly we don’t blame you. These boots are totally having a moment and currently come in four colours, but we’re committed to these metallic red ones that just scream classic rock ‘n’ roll. Their slim but modest height heel make them a better choice for those dryer winter days and into the spring, or to wear inside at work.

STNF_Red Boots_Steven Madden Slammin Boot

Vixen Vibes
For those of you looking for the perfect boot for your next date night, look no further than these jaw dropping over the knee stiletto boots by Steve Madden. It’s a sleek sock boot style thanks to it’s stretchy fabric that will go perfectly with literally anything in your closet from your favourite little black dress, to a t-shirt and denim or a casual oversized sweater dress. Our advice for rocking these boots is keeping it clean and simple to allow the boots to be the focus of your outfit.

STNF_Red Boots_Isabel Marant Red Adenn Boots

Just To Say You Love You
Red is no doubt the colour of passion and love, so why not treat yourself with these amazing Isabel Marant calfskin leather booties like we’re dying to do?! We are obsessing over their unique shape thanks to the triangular heel and v shaped foot opening which is a huge trend right now in footwear. We’re dying to wear these with our favourite raw hemmed denim and go to biker jacket for a the perfect street chic look.

SNTF_Red Boots_Topshop Andi Ankle Boots

Flat, But Not Boring
You know we couldn’t have a boot list without including one flat style, and we think this Topshop pair fits right in with the rest! This boot really has it all from great western inspired buckles to a red snake print leather that is still somehow subtle enough to pair well with pretty much anything in your closet. And don’t think those buckles are just for show… they actually work so you can adjust the fit or be a little rebel and leave a couple open!

5 Office Approved Work Bags
Today’s workplaces are a lot different than what they were five to 10 years ago. A big culture shift we are starting to see is employers starting to provide more work-life balance to their environments with some giving employees the freedom to use laptops to work from home, at off-site locations or hoteling stations within the office when required for their schedules. With that change in structure, a lot of us sometimes find ourselves bringing our work home, stuffing our files and paperwork in our purses, and lugging around a tired laptop bag given to us by the not so trendy IT guy. We scoured our favourite places to shop and found five office approved bags that are not only practical but look good too! Read the full post here

Fashion Jobs – The Party Bags Worth Investing In

Monday, February 12th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canadaclutch inspo

For the nights when we don’t want to put effort into our clothes, show a lot of skin and most likely be underdressed, there is a bag that will veto your entire outfit choice and still make you the standout star you know you are. It’s not just about having the perfect dress or standout outfit these days, but your accessories, especially the bag, has to have a voice and it better scream “SLAY”. The party bag compliments but is regarded separately to the outfit and carries its own confidence and attitude. This is where you would be at a work function dressed very demure, but the bag is breaking all the rules and making sure you are seen and heard. We have done the work and rounded up our favourite breakout party bags everyone must try.

aldo velvet

Velvet Crush
We’re starting the list off with a bang with this show-stopping purple velvet bag.  This is for the sophisticated, classy party where one hand is solely dedicated to your party bag and the other hold your glass of champagne while you mingle with guests.

clutch anthro
Marble Feels
If you’re going for that futuristic sleek look, this is the bag for you. Pair it with your favorite girls night out dress and don’t be afraid to wear colour; you will definitely be a standout with a splash of drama.

clutch metal

Vintage Vibes
There’s something about wearing something from the past in the present that gives you ultimate street cred. We love this retro throwback wrist bag, giving all the disco diva vibes.  Throw on your LBD, sky-high heels, and gold hoops for the ultimate party look.

clutch boho

Boho Babe
The easy breezy boho babe is versatile and ventures out in her style while still keeping true to her relaxed roots. This is the perfect party bag for her with stone accents and a brass metal exterior giving a regal look and cool-girl vibes.

Edgy Gal
We couldn’t end the list without a fun and outrageous bag for our edgy babes. We believe there is no such thing as too much, and this clutch definitely speaks for itself. It demands attention and the spotlight everywhere it goes, and it is one to have in your closet.

There is a regal and powerful quality that women exude when wearing ruffles. Could be the Victorian-esque inspiration on feminine and masculine dressing, or releasing your inner salsa dancer, but either way, we can’t get enough of them.

pastels

Pastels
Pastels for spring? How original. We always associate spring with colour, but the pastel hues have been shown all over the runways for spring. Lavender is a particular shade designers such as Victoria Beckham and Michael Kors have all showcased in their collections and is a must grab if you ask us.

check

Check Mate
Spring is not all just about colour but prints as well. The check print made ways through our fall and winter wardrobes, and we are keeping them around for spring. It is a fresh, masculine print that can easily be worn soft and pretty as well as edgy and sharp.

bright

Bold Colour
Ladies, be prepared for all your black pieces to take a back seat because the bolder the colour the better. It’s all about sharp pops of colour, monochromatic dressing, and letting your outfit be seen from three blocks away, and we are definitely not mad about it.

sheer

Transparent
A little bit of risqué never hurt anyone, and we love how this trend is being shown on the runway. You can really push the boundaries and wear the sheer look to complement your own style or if you want to switch things up and take it up a notch.

vinyl

Vinyl
Vinyl is creeping back and although some might think of it as a faux pas we can’t get enough of this fabric and how it brings personality and attitude to every look. Perhaps starting with a pair of black vinyl pants or skirt will help you get on board with this trend or accessories like bags or a pair of knee-high boots. You will definitely be the talk of the party.

sunnies

Futuristic Sunnies
We have seen celebrities and fashion bloggers all ditching their oversized sunglasses and swapping them for small, sleek, futuristic-looking frames. There is such a wide variety of styles and shapes to cater to all face shapes. You will be ahead of everyone with your chic glasses when the sun decides to show face.
