Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canada

As winter rages on, there are a number of trends that the fashion world just can’t seem to get enough of, one of them being leopard print. And we get that leopard print has been around since the 70s, but it’s sticking around for a good reason. For starters, if you’re not afraid of making a statement, it’s one of the best neutrals you can have in your closet. Whether you’re looking for inspo for your next night out or for a very on-trend way to break up your predictable all-black winter ensemble, read on to see what leopard print pieces we’re coveting now.

The Bootie
It’s easy to stay right on trend while rocking this leopard print sock bootie. Featuring a pointed toe (which is currently one of the hottest footwear trends), this ankle boot has a just-right heel (and price) that will have you strutting with confidence.

The Jumpsuit
Sure, there might be snow on the ground, and technically a little cold for a jumpsuit, but with the right styling this will be the hottest thing in your wardrobe this year. Pair with a thin, fitted turtle neck, booties, and a black faux fur jacket and you’ve got your go-to leopard print look regardless of the time of day. Once the warmer months hit, rock this baby with a leather jacket and pumps for a killer night-out look.Screen Shot 2019-02-18 at 3.43.31 PM

The Pants
For the ultimate ‘it girl’ look, style a pair of leopard print pants with a pair of edgy, black boots, a vintage band tee and a leather jacket and a pair of chic sunnies. We’re getting major Vanessa Hudgens vibes with this look.

The Blouse
There’s something about a sheer blouse that just screams confidence. But when you have a sheer, leopard print blouse with a statement collar, now that’s a whole other story. What we love about this blouse is it can be styled with a pair of dress pants for the office or with a pair of high-waisted jeans or a leather skirt for a night on the town.

The Sunnies
If you’re not comfortable rocking full-blown leopard print, why not try for something a little more subtle like a pair of leopard print sunnies instead? They are versatile, fun, and today’s newest tortoiseshell.

Fashion Jobs – Interview Question: What are your Weaknesses?

Interview Tips - Christie Lohr Style Nine to Five

No job interview is complete without the dreaded, “what’s your greatest weakness” question, or some variation of it. Employers love to ask candidates about their professional weaknesses, and what a candidate says in response can reveal a lot about them. I can’t even begin to count how many times I’ve received the generic, “I pay too much attention to detail,” another variation of turning an inherent strength into a weakness, or worse “I don’t have any”. Everyone has weaknesses in certain areas; it’s human nature. Trying to pass yourself off as a perfectionist during your interview may not actually work in your favour the way you would expect it to. Be real and be authentic. Always show up to an interview having fully prepared to answer that dreaded question. As an employer, I want to know what you’ve done to overcome a weakness in the past, specifically something that’s related to the workplace and not your personal life. It’s important to maintain professionalism, so choose a weakness that would be of interest to your interviewer.

 

For example, my personal weakness is that I am disorganized. Being so busy, I want to get everything done ahead of schedule and in the rush to do so, I may just skip a beat along the way. With so much going on, I’m prone to being somewhat scatter-brained and have even missed a few important, scheduled calls in the past. In order to improve and overcome this weakness, I committed to writing everything down in front of me. I knew I had to start doing so as using my phone calendar wasn’t effective for me. Along with writing and documenting everything, I also started creating spreadsheets on Google Docs. The combination of the two has been really effective in helping me get more organized. Although my organization is still something that I’m working on, I can safely say that it’s no longer a hindrance to my ability to be productive while not missing the little details.

 

Whether you share my weakness of disorganization, or have one that’s unique to you, I encourage you to work at improving your negatives so that you can turn it into a great answer to the next “what’s your biggest weakness” interview question.”

Fashion Jobs – 5 must-have snakeskin pieces

If you’ve spent even a few moments on social media this year you know the snakeskin trend has flooded the fashion scene. Now, everywhere you look you can see snakeskin in stores, through great street style, in magazines. It has really taken over. Like most animal prints, we know rocking snakeskin can be a little bit daunting so we have come up with the five best ways to wear this trend.

 Snakeskin bag

The Purse
If you don’t normally play with prints and patterns in fashion, trying a new trend can be a bit scary. If this is all new to you, we recommend starting out with a snakeskin purse. This adds a bit of flare and fun to your outfit. You can pair it with jeans and a leather jacket for a more edgy feel, or heels and an accordion skirt if you’re feeling more feminine.

snakeskin boots

 The Shoes
Another great way to ease into this trend is with shoes. Shoes are a bolder step from a purse, but you’re still not all the way in the deep end. A pair of snakeskin booties is a fun way to add a pop of pattern with an all-black outfit. Any snakeskin shoes are a conversation starter.

The Skirt
Skirts are always fun pieces to play with. The snakeskin print is a bit of a darker vibe, so a skirt makes it a bit more approachable for those who want to experiment with the print. You don’t have to just get a plain printed skirt either. You’ll find this print with sequins, pleats, or even faux leather.

The Top
A snakeskin top can be used as a fun, edgy piece. If you pair this top with leather leggings, bomber jacket and boots, you will look like a rock star. You could pair a blouse with a pencil skirt for work, or a turtleneck with relaxed denim on the weekends. The options are endless.

 snakeskin dress

The Dress
The best way to go all in is with a snakeskin printed dress. A dress is a great way to try the trend from head to toe. With the print everywhere right now, we bet you’ll see snakeskin printed dresses in your favourite store.

Fashion Jobs – 5 Flirty Valentine’s Day Looks for Any Occassion

Thursday, February 7th, 2019

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canada

It’s hard to believe that it’s already February! Even though January felt like the month that would never end, Valentine’s Day is now right around the corner. If you’re in a relationship, going on a first date, or hanging out with your girlfriends, each event calls for a super cute outfit. Don’t worry, we’ve rounded up the top Valentine’s Day looks you need to try this year.

 IMG_1824

Going out with your significant other
Silk is the most romantic, flirty fabric you can find. While it might be a bit too risky for a first date, have fun with it if you have a significant other. Silk slip dresses that give you that lingerie feel is a great way to re-spark that fire in your relationship. If you want it to be edgier, add knee-high boots and a leather coat. If you are looking for a more feminine style, put on a pair of strappy sandals and a dressy coat.

 black-ruffle-peplum-top

Going on a first date (Casual)
You definitely have a few options here depending on where you’re going and how dressy you want to be. We have options for both. If you’re going for a more casual dinner, we suggest wearing a pair of dark skinny jeans, your pointiest stilettoes, and a lace peplum top. The peplum shape dresses up your outfit a bit more, without looking like you’re trying too hard.

 11-a-moody-floral-midi-dress-with-a-sheer-bodice-and-skirt-short-sleeves-and-black-shoes-and-a-bag (1)

Going on a first date (Dressy)
You have just found out your date is going to be at the trendiest dinner restaurant in the city. The restaurant has the longest waiting list and the fanciest atmosphere. Our recommendation is a floral dress. Black, red and pinks are great colours to lean towards. Adding a bit a ruffle also gives this outfit a very flirty feel.  

 look5-30

Going out with your ladies
You can keep this outfit a little bit more casual. Let’s be honest, it is cold out there right now! Why don’t you dress slightly for the weather and throw on a pair of skinny trousers, heels and a romantic inspired top. Channel your inner Juliette with feminine detailing, puffed shoulders and perhaps a sweetheart neckline. You can dress this up with statement jewelry or your favourite pair of stilettos.

alc-jumpsuit

Group Date
Our favourite look for a group date is a killer jumpsuit. Something with long sleeves, and flowy pants, but a deep V neck is such a great option. You aren’t overdressing, but you’re still going to stand out. We suggest either going the all-black route, replacing the staple LBD, or playing with some animal prints like leopard.

Fashion Jobs – 5 Fashion Rules you can Break this Year

A new year brings new fashion trends and new rules that come along with them. However, 2019 seems to be the year of pushing boundaries and forgetting the rules altogether. Fashion is ever-changing, and so are the rules that come along with it. So why are we still following the same rules we have been for years? Let’s have some fun with fashion. Here are the top five rules you can break this year.

0da93aa971bc1c39946ae64edf4c823c

Mixing Metals
Silver and gold jewelry look fantastic together – whoever said no to that? We’re now upgrading this statement and moving it away from jewelry and into our clothes. Metallic silver culottes with a sheer gold blouse? That is an outfit that will get people talking.

ec37ec0b1ee23cd7bfc66d0b0a75de13 (1) 

Mixing Colours
We’ve all heard before ‘never pair black with navy’ but this year, forget that! Pairing black and navy together gives your outfit an edgy, cool feel. Think a navy blouse paired with black leather leggings – rocker chic.

a05e4c88bf39093b588a9eaf91835d05 

Mixing Prints
Animal print and floral? Stripes and polka dots (think any Kate Spade product). Forget sticking to one print per outfit. Have fun, mix prints an make a statement. Who said fashion had to be boring? If you stick to the same kind of tones in each print, there is no reason why you can’t mix and match them.

 hbz-street-style-ss2016-milan-day2-01

White at Anytime
We say yes! It’s not just for after Labour Day (a ridiculous rule in our opinion). The best example is white booties that are being seen everywhere lately! We know you love your LBD but think of all the fun LWD you could be wearing. White is so crisp and clean. It will give you a well put together look for any occasion.

 fashion-2014-05-work-outfit-idea-floaty-midy-skirt-main

Neutrals
We’ve heard it said before that neutrals are rather boring. We beg to differ. You don’t always need a pop of colour to make an outfit standout. Camel tones are huge this year and we’re loving it. Whether you have a camel coat, beige trousers, or want to rock neutrals head to toe, we’re all for it!

Fashion Jobs – A Day in the Life of a Freelance Writer

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaScreen Shot 2019-01-30 at 10.32.50 AM

The first time that I watched Sex and the City and saw Carrie Bradshaw work as a writer in New York City, I knew that’s exactly what I wanted to do when I got older. Fast-forward many years, I’m thrilled to say, I am a writer and my younger self would be seriously impressed. The only thing I’m missing in my life is Carrie’s stunning NYC brownstone apartment, but I’ll get there one day.

 

What kind of a writer am I, you ask? Well, even if you’re not wondering I’m going to tell you anyways. For starters, I’ve been working as a freelance writer for about four years now and that’s in addition to working as a full-time writer for Daily Hive and as Style Nine to Five’s managing editor! Yes, it’s busy, but when you love what you do, it never really feels like work.

 

My schedule is never the same: Each week and day varies depending on whether I have events to attend for work, which freelance stories I’m working on, and what additional projects I’m taking on. And while my full-time job is always consistent, my freelance work is what is constantly changing, which is why I do try to maintain a fairly consistent schedule so I can always stay on track of things. All that said, here’s a general idea of what my average day looks like for me as a freelance writer.

 

6:30 AM: Wake Up

Let’s get one thing clear, I’m not a morning person. But since my days are always jam-packed, I have to maximize my time. I make breakfast, coffee, and get ready for the day. This always includes taking a look at my calendar to see what deadlines are coming up, and what needs to be done for the day outside of my regular work routine.

 

7:30 AM: Office

My workday begins at 8:30, but I like to try to get into the office before that so I can get organized. Not only do I use this time to go through work for the day, but I’ll also use my free time to email with freelance clients regarding pitches, plan out upcoming story ideas, and source images for stories. But once the newsroom is ready to begin for the day, all my focus is on that, so freelance work is put on hold.

 

1:00 PM: Lunch Break

When it comes time to take a break, I like to fully take a break from work. My favourite thing to do, if the weather is nice, is taking a walk to a local coffee shop, and taking a stab at my personal projects. I won’t have my laptop with me, so I won’t be getting any actual writing done, but I do like to use this time to check in on my freelance projects, which I can do with my phone. This might be sending a revision to an editor, taking notes on feedback I was given, doing some research for future stories, or even surfing the web for inspiration for future stories.

 

What’s great about writing is story inspiration is all around you, for example, earlier this week I was in Shoppers Drugmart and saw a beauty brand had launched its own line of sweat-proof makeup. Seeing this led me to pitch a freelance story on sweat-proof beauty products, which the editor loved. So if you’re thinking about writing, always keep your eyes open for story inspo, it’s seriously everywhere.

 

2:00 PM to 6:00 PM: Back to Work

After my break, it’s back to work for the day. I’m typically in the office until around 6 pm and then once I’m done I’m off to media events for the night. Often it’s events for work, but through freelancing, I also get to attend fun events more tailored towards beauty and fashion which are really fun. During this time, I often get to check out new collections, product launches, networking events, cocktail hours or dinners. During an average week I attend 3 to 4 events, sometimes there are multiple in one night.

 

At media events, I have the opportunity to chat with publicists and brands. I truly love this aspect of the job because it’s a great way to network and meet people in the industry.

 

9:00 PM: Work Part 2, AKA Freelance Time

Once I get home, I make dinner, if I didn’t eat at an event, and then dive back into work. I’ll use this time to work on any freelance articles I have and work on content for Style Nine to Five. I’m definitely a night owl and I find this time my most productive, so I really utilize this time to get as much stuff done on my seemingly never-ending to-do list. I typically like to try to be finished work by 11, so I can use the rest of my night to unwind and focus on self-care. This typically includes a face mask and unwinding with Netflix.

 

Even though my days are packed, I love every second of it. Each day is always different, and some days even though I’m up until 2 am finishing freelance work, I still manage to go to bed with a smile on my face. Being able to work as a full-time writer, and also as a freelancer on the side allows me to take on multiple projects, and write about topics that I’m truly passionate about.  It’s a lot of work, but I wouldn’t change it for the world.

Fashion Jobs – How to Create the Perfect Vision Board

With the beginning of the new year, you set new goals and resolutions. If you’re like us, you send new intentions out into the universe and envision these intentions coming true. A great way to do that is with a vision board. Vision boards take time, thought and a bit of perfection. To help you create the perfect vision board, we have made a list of all the top must do’s.

 

Start with inspiration
We recommend making a new Pinterest board and pinning everything that inspires, motivates or speaks to you. What are your goals for the year? Are you wanting to travel more? Change careers? Work on a healthier lifestyle? Find images and quotes that will fit your board. Once it’s full of images, you can consolidate and start to think about what you want on your tangible vision board.

3184975d003efa051a4151395d6f68d3 

Choose a colour theme that speaks to you
What is your colour for the year? It could be the colour that takes over your Instagram feed, your favourite colour, or something that inspires you. If it’s a common colour, you’ll be able to find a poster board in that shade at a dollar store or craft store. If it’s not, buy a white poster board along with some paint. You can mix a few shades and paint the board so it works for you.

65c229644254654e0e705867b8dfa7fc

Scour through magazines
I love flipping through magazines and finding photos that are aligned with my intentions for the year. Go through and cut out quotes or photos to paste on to your board. If you don’t fully love it, put it aside.  Only choose photos or quotes that will still spark inspiration for your year ahead. 

 

Lay it out
Before you go glue happy and paste everything down, lay everything out. This will allow you to have a flow of the board that works cohesively. It means that you can play with angles and placement before it’s glued down for good. It also means that if you notice an image or quote doesn’t quite go at the last minute, it’s not too late to change it.

197d2d3beb7447f06d8cd506a2fbec08 

Keep it somewhere you’ll see it
The whole point of a vision board is so that you’ll see it and be inspired. That means don’t keep it in the back of your closet! Keep it somewhere where you will see it daily. Maybe for you, that’s above your desk, in your bedroom or even living room. By seeing your vision board regularly, you’ll be constantly inspired to work towards your goals.

Fashion Jobs – 4 Trends to Stop Wearing Now

Now that 2019 is fully underway, it’s safe to say that there are a few trends from 2018 that have already fady away from the fashion radar. That’s right, some of last year’s hottest trends (ahem, transparent fashion), have already disappeared from our favourite ‘it girls’ Instagram feeds. Read on to see the trends that (thankfully) won’t be sticking around for too much longer this year.

be6d209afc369e593c5c913eaf6de9a3

Tiny Sunglasses
As seen on literally everyone from supermodels to A-list stars, teeny tiny sunglasses were easily the hottest accessory of 2018. But, oh how we’re glad to see them not make a serious comeback. For starters, they don’t protect your eyes from the sun. Secondly, there’s a hotter shade trend this year, and that’s Princess Diana-inspired sporty sunglasses.

a2f006b38c379718714c3871e8d1aa48

Logos
2018 was the year we saw 90’s-inspired logos have a major resurgence. Whether you were shopping for fast fashion at Urban Outfitters or from high-end designers like Fendi or Louis Vuitton, logos were sprawled over everything. But like all bold and eye-catching trends, logos started to feel (and look) dated very quickly.

fe6604a475afe20d922d856953991a8f

Transparent Fashion
Leave it to Kim Kardashian to make clear, transparent clothes fashionable. But as you can imagine, walking around in plastic boots or carrying your belongings in a completely transparent bag can become rather difficult (and annoying) over time, which is why we’re pleased to see this trend go.

385b1c4b342969c16ba2cb3c855a8c45

Chunky Sneakers
While we’re all for rocking comfy footwear, we’re super stoked that this trend is slowly fizzling out.
