Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canada2959ca80e79b96b8e9ca7d66ac22e8f8

Like technology, fashion is constantly changing and evolving, transitioning into the bigger and better. And to be honest, sometimes the fashion industry changes so quickly, it’s hard to keep up. And like all things in life, all these changes create a domino effect. As designs and trends continue to evolve, so must the jobs in the fashion industry in order to keep up.


Consumption Needs
Since the beginning, the meaning and thought behind clothing have evolved. First, clothing was something that you needed to keep warm and survive; next, it represented your wealth; then it pushed social repression, and now fashion is a way to express who you are. Since how consumers perceive fashion has changed, the jobs have changed as well. Designers now need to work faster and think more about what their designs mean to their audience. How will it sell? Who is the target audience? How is it different?


This change has also affected the demand for fashion. This means production times need to be shorter, costs need to be lower. Mass production of the product has replaced the hardworking ateliers that you would typically find in fashion-forward cities such as Paris. There is no longer the time to spend hundreds of hours on a single garment as you would before — these pieces are now reserved for the runway.


The Move to Being Eco-Friendly
Today there is a huge shift in the industry to be more eco-friendlier and conscious. Brands are now sourcing eco-friendly materials for their collections and producing more products closer to home. This is changing the jobs of factory directors, sourcing directors, and importers. These jobs have had to change the way they work and think more ‘green’ when it comes to production and order fulfilments.


Social Media
In the last five to ten years, fashion on social media has boomed. Jobs have been created for social media managers, marketers and brand and community managers. This is a big sector that didn’t exist before, so fashion careers have had to quickly adapt and change.


There will always be new sectors, new ideas and new jobs. The fashion industry has proven itself to not be stuck in the past and quickly adapts to change. This then means, going into the fashion industry, you must be willing to change with the times, have an open mind and go with the flow.

Fashion Jobs – Flats for Pre-Fall

Tuesday, August 14th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaSNTF_FLATS FOR PRE-FALL_INSPIRATION

Pre-fall is such an exciting time for style and most fashionistas’ favourite time of the year. Getting to wear your summer favourites like dresses and jumpsuits paired with jackets, boots and blazers gives you more to work with when putting together with outfits. One of our favourites for the pre-fall season is flats! We love how versatile flats can be taking us from the office to weekend brunch and of course how comfortable they can be compared to a pair of heels, while still feeling put together. This is definitively the time of year to take advantage of wearing flats before the snow starts hitting the ground. If you’re looking for a great piece of pre-fall footwear, here are 5 great flats we’re sure you’ll love!

SNTF_Flats For Pre-Fall_Steve Madden Feather


Exotic Footprint
Just because summer is coming to an end, doesn’t mean the fun exotic prints have to! These Feather flats from Steve Madden are bound to be the flats of the season, and we love the snake print pattern that never seems to go out of style. Pair these flats with a pencil skirt or raw hem skinny jeans.

Screen Shot 2018-08-10 at 5.46.08 PM

Fashion Foot Forward
Although a more unusual style, these black suede pointed toe flats are super feminine and fashionable. We love the crushback heel turning these into mules instantly, which is super on-trend right now and gives you a lot of versatility with one shoe. These Black Suede Studio flats go great with culottes and cropped pants!

SNTF_Flats For Pre-Fall_Zara Two-Toned Flats

Two-Toned Classic
These Chanel inspired Zara ballerina flats are bound to be a go-to shoe. Their minimalistic style is given a bit of flare with the two-toned colourway and classic ballerina flat bow. These flats would go great with your favourite midi dress and leather jacket or kept casual with jeans and a t-shirt.

SNTF_Flats For Pre-Fall_Sam Edelman Felicia
Wild Side
Another gorgeous pick and one of our favourite ballerina style flats are these Sam Edelman ones. The Felicia style is one of their staple designs coming in a variety of materials and colours, but we’re majorly crushing on this leopard print that’s definitely making its way back to fashion’s good books. Pair these with a skinny trouser or your favourite boyfriend jeans!

SNTF_Flats For Pre-Fall_Karl Lagerfeld Paris Larza

Twinkle Toes
Who doesn’t love a little bit of sparkle? These Karl Lagerfeld Flats are the perfect balance of simple yet sophisticated with the embellished toe that gives us a bit of a Blair Waldorf vibe. Wear these with your favourite LBD for the office or cropped trousers.

Fashion Jobs – Q&A with Vancouver-based jewellery designer Leah Alexandra

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canada


Leah Alexandra has taken the jewellery world by storm, by creating pieces with natural gems and stones, making each of her unique pieces stand out. Originally from Toronto, then relocating to Vancouver, Leah Alexandra has brought our local scene to her designs. Her designs are carried in local boutiques, internationally, online and of course, found in her showroom in Gastown. Leah took some time to talk to us a little bit about her company, her inspirations, and the future.


SNTF: How did you get started with your own jewellery line? 


LA: I became very fascinated by gems and never turned back! While finishing my degree, I became particularly obsessed with turquoise stones. I set out to source a wholesale dealer and that led to the creation of my first experimental pieces that I would sell to friends and classmates. 


SNTF: How do you find inspiration for your designs? 


LA: Travel! Especially to destinations with a deep-rooted history of art and design like Rome, or to one of my favourites cities, it’s a tie between Paris and New York.


SNTF: Do you hand pick all the gems for your collections?


LA: Most of them yes! Because they are a natural material each one is inherently unique and it really requires being up close and personal to hand select the best ones.


SNTF: We can see on Instagram you travel a lot for your pieces. Is there anywhere you have loved the most and why?


LA: Corsica- a small island in France with rugged coastlines and ancient villages that remain very much how they were hundreds of years ago. There is something so peaceful about it! On the opposite end of the spectrum, India was a wild ride for the senses and was very inspiring- I can’t wait to go back to both.

Leah Alexandra 2

SNTF: What is your favourite piece?


LA: That’s like asking me to pick between my children! (Even though I don’t have any yet). Okay, fine, I choose the Rainbow Ring! Just the right amount of sparkle and is so fun to stack with other rings. 


SNTF: You’ve started carrying vintage lockets. How do you find the perfect ones? 


LA: I scour flea markets and pawn shops, mostly in the US. It takes time but it’s a passion project of mine, and often my finds inspire new designs! 


SNTF: For women who don’t wear much jewellery, what is the one piece that they should own?


LA: I’d say start with an everyday necklace- either the tiny Luna necklace, or the moonstone Cameo necklace for something a tad more substantial.


SNTF: What is your favourite part about owning your own business?


LA: Being in charge of my day everyday (for the most part) and employing an amazing team of women.


SNTF: So many celebrities have been spotted wearing your designs. That must be so surreal. What was your reaction when your jewellery was first spotted on a celebrity?


LA: It was definitely a pinch me moment when Jessica Alba picked out pieces for her character in a movie she was filming!


SNTF: You’ve been expanding a lot. Where do you see your company in the next five years?


LA: I currently have seven employees and growing! We are really starting to outgrow our studio, so well within the next 5 years, we will be moving to a larger space with more offices and a bigger showroom.


SNTF: What can we expect next from Leah Alexandra?


LA: We’re working on our Fall collection at the moment, but stay tuned for some solid 14K designs, and more travel of course!

Fashion Jobs – 5 Fall Trends on Instagram Now

Thursday, October 12th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaLAURIEFERRARO_INSPIRATIONIMAGE

Fall is such a big season for fashion, between the September shows and all the extra layers we get to wear as it gets colder we’re pretty busy keeping up. Staying on top of the shows, scouring the magazine shelves and hours of pinning your favourite looks can pretty much become a part-time job. Our favourite way to get outfit inspiration hands down has to be Instagram!  We’re breaking down our must-have trends for fall with the help of some of our favourite style muses!


Oversized Trench Coat
Probably one of the few pieces in your closet that will never be outdated is the classic trench coat. We love how it’s both functional on rainy days yet chic and fashionable so you’re not cramping your style. Plus it’s office appropriate! We love this oversized one worn by @LisaDNYC.


Baker Boy Hats
We are beyond obsessed with the latest trend in headwear: baker boy hats. They add such model-off-duty vibes to any outfit from jeans and a tshirt to your favourite LBD. @Darling_Tee kept her look edgy by pairing her hat with a leather jacket. Let’s just say we’re NOT taking our hats off for this trend… in a good way!


Cozy Hoodies/Crewnecks
No one makes oversized sweaters look as sexy, stylish and cozy as @MadeleineBitici! This recently new mother and style blogger knows how to rock cozy sweats and still keep it 100 whether it’s casual with sneakers or more dolled up with a heel


Grey Plaid Blazers
As I’m sure you know, a good blazer will almost always make a Style Nine to Five top list because well, we mean business after all! But nothing is giving us life more than gray plaid blazers right now, like this one on @_NathalieMartin. They have such a 90’s feel without seeming overly outdated like some of the other trends we wish would have stayed behind.


Camo Pants
Street style lovers everywhere own at least one pair of camo pants like @BlvkD0pe, and we think you should too! They’re a great alternative to sweatpants and although they can’t be worn to every office, they are a great choice to wear on a day off. Baggier styles like these Leah Kirsch ones (did you check out our Q&A with her?!) work great to layer with leggings underneath as it gets colder!

Fashion Jobs – 4 Sites to Help You Land Your Dream Fashion Job

Thursday, September 28th, 2017


Whether you had the opportunity to study fashion in school or you simply have the passion for fashion (as cheesy as that sounds), a career in fashion may be for you! Now the only challenge is finding that dream job, because the truth is, we’re not all going to have it easy like Lauren Conrad on the Hills. Finding a job in the fashion industry is not only extremely competitive, but it’s also hard to find a job that’s perfect for you. But to help you start your job search, here are four career websites that can help you land your dream fashion job.


LinkedIn is hands down one of the best sources for finding a job, especially in the fashion industry. By creating a profile, you’re able to follow companies you’re interested in working with, and network and connect with both potential employers and other people within the fashion industry. Messages can be exchanged in order to inquire about fashion jobs or to simply get advice on how to enter the industry. Through the job search engine, you can locate jobs within your area and filter out jobs by what type of position you’re looking for.


While we all love Instagram for sharing our OOTD pics and looking for fashion inspo, it can also be a great tool for landing a fashion job. Through Instagram, you can follow brands, designers, and companies that you’re interested in. Today, many big brands share when they’re hiring on their social media channels, giving you an inside scoop on applying.


Indeed is another incredible online job hunting tool, as it can be tailored to anyone’s needs and preferences. Jobs can be filtered out by date, location, position type and even company. A profile can be made where your resume can be stored, making it easy for you to quickly apply to jobs. Employers can then send you messages to set up interviews or to give you more information about the job position. Indeed is a great tool and the app is even better!


Style Nine to Five
Finally, there’s no better way to look for jobs in the fashion industry than with Style Nine to Five. Not only can you look for fashion and retail related jobs across Canada, but you can also head to the blog where you can find tips to help you land a job, and succeed at working within the fashion industry. You can also subscribe to the job feed in order to get notified when new jobs have been posted.

Fashion Jobs – 5 Sneakers Men Need On Their Radar This Season

Monday, June 26th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaCarly Inspo Image

Now that the warm summer weather is finally here to stay, it’s time to toss your old, worn-out shoes and make room for some slicker options. Sleek sneakers are here to stay and at Style Nine To Five, we’re here to help you accommodate yourself with the hottest new trends to breach the fashion world of men’s footwear. Whether you’re looking for an office-approved sneaker, something wear when you venture on evenings out or simply something for meeting up with friends to grab a bite to eat, here are the top five sneakers you need to keep an eye out for this season.

1. Yeezy


The Laidback Streetwear

You’ve probably seen these sneakers in every fashion blogger’s articles from NYC to TO.  These are the hype sneakers that keep finding their way back into your timelines. Despite the hefty price tag, Kanye West’s flagship design collaboration with Adidas has surely made an impact on men’s streetwear. The newly designed Adidas Yeezy Powerhouse “Calabasas” looks perfect when paired with a straight leg dress pant or green, tan or maroon chinos on casual days.

2. Ted Baker

The Dress Shoe Sneaker
This Ted Baker low-rise leather sneaker gives off a polished yet edgy look for men and is perfect for those who are not a fan of colours. The detailed trim of the shoe gives off simplicity but sophistication for every scheduled meeting you may have this week! It’s the best of both worlds, comfortability and style all in one shoe. If you don’t prefer black, this shoe is also available in tan, light brown, and red. Pair these shoes with a pair of tailored shorts and button-up short sleeve for the hot work days.

3. Mesh

The Athletic Sneaker

This sneaker is made with a lightweight mesh material that is perfect for the high temperatures that will be rising throughout the work day.  If you want to wear an office-appropriate sneaker but want to get some comfortability in your step, this Deross sneaker will be it. Pair these kicks with a black or white long sleeve button-up and cuffed jeans or navy trousers.

4. Slip-on

The Slip-On and Go Sneaker

If you’re a no shoelaces kind of guy and prefer not having to worry about your laces coming undone throughout the busy workday then these Vince Conway slip-ons are meant for you.  These slip-on sneakers are best paired with a straight leg pant denim or tailored and cuffed at the ankles to keep extra cool this season.

5. Vans

The Hi-Top Sneaker

Believe it or not, but Vans were first released almost 40 years ago, but they’ve never been cooler than they are today. These hi-top sneakers will add a vintage vibe to your workwear, whatever you decide to wear that day. These sneakers are definitely more appropriate for casual days or to a BBQ with some close friends!

Fashion Jobs – Styling Palazzo Pants for the Summer

Monday, June 26th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaMJ Inspo Image

The summer months are such an exciting time for fashion; the warm weather requires as few layers as possible, meaning creating unique and versatile outfits need careful planning with each piece purchased. Palazzo pants are a fun staple for the warmer months they can be taken from the office to the streets and everywhere in between. They give you something different to play around with rather than a maxi skirt, and unlike a dress can be mixed and matched with different accessories and tops to create a totally different vibe. From classic and timeless to fun and funky styles, we rounded up our favourite palazzo pants for you to experiment with this summer!

1. TOPSHOP Mia Split Palazzo Trousers

Flow With The Trend


A more trend-focused take on the palazzo pant, this style from Topshop is a cropped cut with slits on the sides giving an airy flow — perfect for those hot summer days. The Mia Split Palazzo Trouser comes in navy and this beautiful lilac colour and pairs great with sandals, loafers or a classic white tennis sneaker.



Keeping It Classic


A more traditional look, these Catherine Catherine Malandrino are an easy pick and just had to be on our list. The elegant lace detail on the sides add a bit of personality to these otherwise black trousers, and the waist tie brings the cut in at just the right places. Despite being black, the crepe material of these pants makes them cool and comfy even during a sun-filled day!


A Mustard Must-Have


How could we not be totally in love with these trousers from Zara, in the perfect colour for summer!? Although, maybe not for everyone, the bright mustard-yellow colour is a bit intimidating at first, but the casualness of their cut, zip up pockets and elastic waistband make them a fun style to play around with. We say pair them with a dark colour band Tee and chunky sandal heel for your next girls night out but hurry, these babies are on sale and definitely won’t last long!


Mermaid Vibes


Thanks to Marciano, we can all channel our inner mermaid this summer with these uniquely printed palazzo pants. We would put this style at the top of our list for any wedding appropriate outfit and suggest you go super minimal with your choice in accessories for these ones. Dress them up for the office with a good blouse or summer blazer, and change the look up with different waist belts to get some versatility out of these trousers.



Transitional Stripes


Everyone needs at least one pair of striped palazzo pants in their wardrobe and this classic cut pair is just right. Featuring a thin elastic drawstring waist, you can wear these effortlessly with a great top or easily tuck the tie under a belt to add a bit more to your look. The dark colour will have you transitioning these into the warmer fall days with your favourite biker jacket or bomber!

Fashion Jobs – Wide Leg Trousers for Work

Tuesday, June 6th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canada

Ivana Inspirational Image

It was only a matter of time before our tapered dress pants took a backseat to the uber chic wide-leg trouser. More often than not, we find ourselves unsatisfied and uninspired with our work wear, relying on our trusted uniform of dark basics, so the reinstatement of the wide leg trouser couldn’t have come at a better time.

But now that summer is finally within reach, we all could use a few pointers on how to look polished and professional, while still beating the summer heat. We know how much loyalty there is to our trusted skinny and fitted work pants, but we guarantee you’ll feel the ease of a high waist, relaxed fabric for the office within the upcoming months.

Not sure where to begin? We’ve rounded up our favourite wide leg trousers that can easily be incorporated into a summer work wardrobe so you can stay cool and fresh all summer long.

1.The Classic

The Classic

These are officially your new go-to work pants. Not only will they make your legs look nice and long, but also, they are also light in fabric, making them dressy, sophisticated, and perfect for the warmer days ahead. The trick to these smart pants is to choose a neutral colour, like camel, as it’s easier to find tops and shoes to match.

2.Colour CrazeColor Craze

For the creative working woman who’s not afraid of a little colour, then a pair of bold, attention-grabbing trousers are for you. While you still must adhere to all office dress codes, you deserve to show off your personal style and there’s no better way than to add some pops of colour to your work wardrobe. A coloured wide leg pant has a retro feel, but when paired with a light blouse and chunky heels you’ll be looking summer time fresh.

3. In the detailsIn the Details

Small details make all the difference when it comes to style. Working in a conservative work environment often limits you to select colours and prints, but the details are what will make you stand out from the crowd. Something as simple as an exaggerated cuff, a belt, or a fold over waist band will give you an extra edge and bring life to your work wear.

  4.Casual Fridays

Casual Fridays

We all love the end of the work week when we can give our work attire a much-needed break and have some fun with our wardrobe. Casual Fridays are what every fashionista looks forward to, as you can get dressed with ease knowing the weekend is right around the corner. A great option for a relaxed yet refined workday is a printed fabric. From floral to stripe, choosing a pant with a darker base colour and a solid top is key for pulling off an eye-catching print.

5. Cut it short

Cut it Short

For those warmer summer days, a great alternative to wide leg work pants is the cropped trouser. A cropped wide leg is an easy way to create a sporty work style with a pair of pumps for the office, and chic sneakers after hours. You want your crops to be at least five inches above the ankle to elongate your legs.

Fashion Jobs – Ditch the Heels and Welcome the Mule

Monday, May 15th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canada

Inspirational Image

Women everywhere anticipate the moment when they can (literally) kick off their heels and feel their toes again.

With open toe season quickly approaching, let’s ditch the uncomfortable heels and go for a more unexpected approach to our footwear options. Mules are having a serious moment this year and the new ‘it’ shoe has created quite the stir.

We can’t get over the ease and comfort this shoe brings, and with all the different styles available, ditch the straps and six- inch heels and opt for a chic backless option that will have you strutting around town like the fashionista you are.

You will find yourself gravitating towards this style due to its eccentric and effortless style and because it will elevate your look for every outing. From ‘90s-inspired metallic to millennial pink, here’s the inspiration you need to stock up on a few pairs for the season.


The Eye-Catching Mule

Metallic shoes are having a moment right now and silver mules are an easy way to add some serious edge to your look. This eye-catching shoe style will quickly become a wardrobe staple and will go with more in your closet than you may assume.


The Elegant Mule

When choosing a mule for a special occasion you’ll definitely want to increase the heel height and go for something a bit more elegant. To achieve this, we recommend exploring luxe suede and satin fabrics with classy detailing like subtle bows and jewels.


The Edgy Mule

For the girl who is low- key but still wants to show some edge to her outfit, a shorter, block heel with mesh is the way to go. This style is sleek and sexy and is perfect for a night out, not to mention you’ll definitely be comfortable the entire night.

4.Satin Fabric

The Flat Mule

We all need a great flat in our shoe repertoire, a go to when you have ten seconds to throw on a pair of shoes and get out the door. A satin mule adds a touch of fun to an outfit, but still says, “I have business to take care of.” Looking smart and polished is exactly what a satin or leather flat mule will give you.


The Vibrant Mule

A vibrant mule is perfect for the bold woman who loves channeling her inner Carrie Bradshaw by strutting her stuff in a statement shoe. If this sounds like you, a hot pink mule with floral detailing is all you need this season. This style goes with everything from a crisp white tee and jeans to a flirty, floral dress, easily making you the liveliest woman in the room.

Fashion Jobs – How to Refresh Your Spring Workwear

Monday, May 15th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canada

Inspirational Image

It might not quite be summer, but it’s definitely starting to feel spring-ish outside. When it comes to transitioning between seasons, it can be quite confusing trying to decide not only what to wear but also what’s office appropriate. To help make the seasonal transition that much smoother, here are a few chic ideas on how to refresh your workwear this spring.

1. White Mules

2. Mango Mules

Mules + Slides

Say au revoir to your normal black pumps and swap them for a pair of chic mules or slides. This season, it comes as no surprise that these shoes are the must-have trend for fashionistas everywhere and after slipping on a pair, we guarantee they’ll be yours, too. If you want to try this trend but don’t want to spend the dough, then fear not, you can pick up something very similar from one of your local high street stores, like these adorable slides from Mango.

3. Chinos and slides

4. H&M Trousers


Step out of your comfort zone and say goodbye to those dreary grey and black work trousers. Swap your predictable workwear for a pair of hip chinos, a crisp white blouse and some cute slides for a fashionista-approved look. Not sure where to shop for on-trend chinos? H&M is currently killing the chino trend this spring and at prices that can’t be beaten.

5. Statement Earrings 6. Earrings

Statement Earrings

The perfect way to freshen up a wardrobe is to add some statement earrings to your accessories arsenal. And luckily for you, there are so many affordable places where you can stock up on statement earrings. Need Supply offers a wide selection of statement accessories with designers like Young Frankk and J Hannah on their site. 

Even if you’re wearing your usual workwear, and don’t necessarily want to invest in any new clothes, by simply adding bold jewellery to your look will immediately add an element of sophistication.
