Now that the Olympics are in full swing, and the colours of gold, silver and bronze are in the forefront of our minds, it’s about time that we all add some updated metallics to our wardrobe.


Metallics are great staple pieces because they act as neutrals, meaning they can be worn with almost anything. Modern metallics have an updated silhouette, or are done in a trendy fashion. Many designers and retailers have added this style to their collections, allowing shoppers an opportunity to participate in this trend. It’s easy to add a pop of silver or gold to many different outfits including dresses, pants, accessories and tops. However, if you are really looking to shine, you can wear a full metallic look. Rocking a silver skirt or a hot gold shirt is a statement piece that is guaranteed to make you stand out from the crowd.

Montreal Fashion Jobs – Fall 2011 Makeup Trends

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

Ladies, Autumn 2011 is all about being bold. Luscious jewel-tones, classic 50s chic, sleek and rebellious black shades, as well as rock worthy metallics found their way into the season’s designer runway collections. Dries Van Noten was all about gold. At Haider Ackermann, we saw strong and sexy dark tones. Meanwhile, Marc Jacobs opted for Sophia Loren-inspired silhouettes and lady-like polka dots. Luckily for us, these current ready to wear obsessions also make for fabulous everyday inspiration. Whether you’re feeling rather “good girl” or more like “good girl gone bad”, try your hand at fall’s hottest makeup looks.

The Jewel-Tone Eye

To get the look, try Avon Mega Impact Eyeshadow ($8). This comes in six high impact colors, each with both a light and a dark hue for an easy jewel-tone smoky eye).

Other options include MAC’s mineralized eye shadows ($20) and Dior’s new “Blue Tie” Collection Palette ($70), available at The Bay.

The Rosy Cheek

The Winehouse Cat-Eye

This throwback to mod was seen at Lanvin, D&G and Alexander Wang among others. Winehouse fans can extend their cat eyes for more drama, or skip the mascara for a more discreet look. Look for easy gel or liquid liners, such as Revlon Colourstay Liquid Liner ($7.29 at most drugstores and at

The Spider Lash

To create fierce, Twiggy-esque spikes go for mascaras with a chunkier wand, like Rimmel London’s Extra Wow Lash ($4.99 at drugstores).

The Return of Red

Red lips at the Miu Miu show, also seen in their Fall 2011 ad campaign.

This classic look is back with a vengeance this fall. From Diane von Furstenberg to Ungaro, bright sexy reds and darker crimson lips were heating up the runways. For a similar seductive pout, turn to shades like YSL’s Rouge Volupte Perle in Mysterious Red ($34) at Nordstrom.

The Dash of Metallic

There seems to be a gold rush happening in terms of fall makeup. Cheeks, eyes, temples, and lips are being sprinkled with shimmery and metallic products.

Go for an ethereal glow with eyeshadow from Make Up Forever’s Star Power Diamond Collection ($24) at Sephora. Embrace all that glitters with Guerlain’s Kiss KissGloss in Peche Charnelle ($30.50) at Sephora . Although it is for lips, try dabbing some on your cheekbones, inner eyes, or temples for added sparkle.

Canada Fashion Jobs – Trends to Transition into Fall

Thursday, August 4th, 2011

Fall is just around the corner, so it’s time to start thinking about pieces to take us into the upcoming season. Incorporate autumn trends into your current wardrobe by mixing these pieces on cooler evenings or when the wind hits. Still stuck in vacation mode? Put these looks at the top of your fall shopping list.

High Heeled Moccasin Pump

2. Zara High Heeled Moccasin ($109).

A revamped version of the classic oxford shoe, these pumps will give you some added height. Try a bright boost of colour and interesting detailing for added flair. They’ll give you the Ivy League student appearance with a fashion forward twist.

Metallic trousers

4. Zara Metallic Trousers ($79.90).

Metallics were all over the Spring/Summer 2011 runway, but they seem to be transitioning into Fall. And why shouldn’t they? This trend gives your outfit a little bit of pizazz when the cold weather creeps up. Just pair it with a classic tee to avoid re-emerging the Disco Queen look.

The Slouchy Sweater

5. Style inspiration from The Sartorialist.

6. Simons Ribbon Knit Sweater ($29.95).

The great thing about this classic staple is that is can be paired with practically anything. Mix it up and wear it with a leather skirt, or keep it basic with a pair of skinny jeans. As opposed to a more fitted cut, this loose fitting pullover will not only keep you warm, but fabulously comfortable.
