Fashion Jobs – How to Pull Off a Slip Dress During Winter

Tuesday, November 14th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canadasd1

 

Like the pyjama top, the slip dress has also been a major hit in the boudoir-dressing trend. Apart from providing good comfort and a sensual vibe, this supposed undergarment has the potential to be very versatile – especially when it comes to layering. Like the jumpsuit, the slip dress does not necessarily have to be attributed to warm temperatures because of its open and form-fitting features. It can also be coordinated with many pieces that not only provide a chic appearance but also sufficient warmth to aid in the colder seasons.  The ultimate goal is to achieve a composed look by bringing out lux style from basic loungewear. Here are four “spicy” ways to rock the slip dress in the winter season that will make you forget about that nasty freezing temperature.

Coordinating with Basics
Similar to the jumpsuit, basic tops may be worn underneath the slip dress for a layered look. Wear a short or long sleeve tee for a casual look or a turtleneck for a dressier appearance.

sd3

Coordinating with Bottoms
Don’t worry about your legs being bare because it IS possible and acceptable to wear a pair of bottoms underneath a slip dress. Jeans provide a smart casual look while dress pants give off total sophistication.

sd4

Coordinating with Sweaters
You may also choose to layer over top of the slip dress rather than underneath. For more warmth, consider wearing an oversized and chunky funnel neck or crew sweater for a chic look.

sd5

Coordinating with Accessories and Shoes
For a classic vintage look, you may consider putting over a fur stole or scarf over the slip dress. For shoes, knee-high boots are recommended for adequate leg coverage.

Fashion Jobs – Five Ways to Keep Wearing Your Favourite Summer Pieces to Work This Fall

Tuesday, October 11th, 2016

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs

With September drawing to a close, we can’t help but feel sad that summer 2016 is officially coming to an end. But rather than packing up your summer clothes completely you should style them so they’re fitting for the colder weather. By mixing the your favourite summer items with your go-to fall pieces, you can create a number of updated looks as you transition from season to season without breaking the bank. If you’re looking for fall fashion inspiration, we’ve got five ways to style your summer pieces so you can wear them to work this fall.

Slip Dress

From magazines to city streets the slip dress trend was everywhere this summer. Transition this item into fall by pairing your favourite dress with a turtleneck sweater and a pair of statement flats.

Lightweight Scarf

On balmy summer nights, all you need is a scarf to pull your outfit together. But as the weather begins to change, a scarf is the perfect accessory for fall layering.

Shorts

Just because the temperature is dropping it doesn’t mean you have to write-off your summer shorts. Rather than rocking your denim cut-offs, opt for a pair of transitional shorts in black, navy, suede or leather and pair with a pair of dark tights on the chillier days and a pair of ankle booties.

White Denim

Whoever said you can’t wear white after Labor Day clearly didn’t know anything about fall style. Keep your crisp white denim in rotation by pairing it with chambray button-ups and a pair of neutral heels. This look is not only perfect for the office, but for post-work cocktails too.

Ankle Booties

During the summer ankle booties are the perfect thing to throw on with shorts and a crop top, but come fall, ankle boots are the perfect addition to skinny jeans and a cozy sweater or with a dress and tights.

Fashion Jobs – 7 Items You Need to Add to Your Work Wardrobe This Fall

Thursday, October 6th, 2016

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs Canada

Now that fall is officially here, we wanted to share seven of our favourite fall classics for this season that are not only perfect for the office, but you’ll be able to transition them from your office meetings to après work cocktails with your girlfriends.

Black Silk Slip Dress
The slip dress trend has been spotted on every runway and magazine cover this year, but this fall we’re excited to see it be worn in the office. To make this trend boardroom appropriate, wear one over a turtleneck and pair with ankle booties. VINCE Silk Slip Dress, $360, available at The Bay

blaqe4016912867_q1_1-0._QL90_UX336_

Chic Double Breasted Blazer

By now, your office wardrobe might consist of various blazers that you’ve collected over the years. But give your typical office wardrobe a facelift by purchasing a chic double-breasted blazer, as they look great with a crisp white dress shirt, a t-shirt, a sweater and jeans, or over a dress in place of a cardigan. Blaque Label Easy Blazer, $256, available at Shopbop.

A Cashmere Turtleneck

Often as we fill our closets up with trendy items, we forget how important it is to invest in items that actually build up our wardrobes. These are the classic items that will never go out of style and are better quality, so they’ll last longer rather than one season. Splurging on a cashmere turtleneck is always a great idea because you’ll wear it for years and definitely get your money’s worth. Make sure to get one in a timeless colour like black, grey, cream, or camel. LORD & TAYLOR Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater, $189, available at The Bay.

Leather Pencil Skirt

A leather skirt is a gorgeous statement piece for fall especially when the weather drops. A black leather skirt is perfect for the office because you can pair it with so many different tops and shoes. Cupcakes and Cashmere Jasper Vegan Leather Pencil Skirt, $138, available at Shopbop.

Feminine Blouse
A little office flirting never hurt anyone, and a flirty, feminine blouse will do all of the work for you this fall. Opt for a blouse featuring lace, ruffles, or a feminine print. 
J Crew Silk Blouse, $168, available at J Crew.

Wide Leg Pants
Wide leg pants are a great purchase as they’re ultra sleek and depending on the fabric, can be worn year round. Pair them with a chic blazer and a turtleneck and you’ll be ready to not only take on the cool fall weather, but anything that comes your way in the office. Express Mid Rise Chevron Wide Leg Pants, $47, available at Express.

Over-the-Knee Boots
Chances are, you already have an impressive collection of fall boots. But if you don’t, we suggest getting a pair of versatile over-the-knee boots this fall. Go for a pair with a fairly flat or low heel and you’ll be able to pair them with midi dresses, skirts, and even jeans if your office has a more casual vibe. Sam Edelman Paloma Over the Knee Boots, $297, available at Shopbop.
