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.

When you picture winter outerwear, chances are you think of bulky and heavy pieces. But the truth is, with a little tweaking, you can really turn your winter essentials into ‘it girl’ approved looks — all you really need is a few style pointers to streamline and balance the look. Read on to learn how you can create a no-fail outfit that will make you actually want to be out in the cold.

The Puffer
If you have yet to rock a puffer coat, let this be your inspiration to embrace this trend. Style a puffer jacket over your go-to basics and drape it over your shoulders to create an ‘it’ girl look. It’s a simple styling hack that all the fashion bloggers use that truly makes a difference.

Textured Coat
If you’ve scrolled through Instagram at least once this year, you know that textured coats, like teddy bear, shearling and faux fur, are having a major moment. Style a textured coat over a statement dress and a pair of sock booties for major 70s vibes.

Menswear  Inspired
A menswear-inspired jacket will instantly make an outfit look structured. For an overall flattering look, style a long grey blazer-style jacket with a fitted turtleneck, jeans and a pair of dark ankle boots.

Off White
Whoever said white after Labour Day was a fashion faux paux seriously never saw white outerwear. Turn some heads this season with a white blazer by pairing the statement coat with sleek trousers and a pair of sneakers. The unexpected hit of white will brighten your mood even on the gloomiest of days.

While most people start the new year planning out their resolutions, Style Nine to Five likes to start the year off by planning out what hot ticket items we want to add to our wardrobes. And what better place to start than with our handbag collection. Rather than letting the dreary winter weather get the best of your wardrobe, let 2019’s hottest trends distract you and inspire your next purchase.  And trust us, you’re going to want to pick up every single one of these styles.

Looped Handle
As seen on the runways of Marc Jacobs, Adeam and Giorgia Armani, the looped handle bag comes in a variety of styles like structured shapes to refined bucket bags. The put-together accessory makes for an effortless way to instantly elevate any look you put together this year.

1090927_ou_pp

Neon
While neon might scream summer vibes, a statement neon bag is exactly what you need to stand out of the crowd this year. Add a splash of colour to your look with a playful neon number ASAP.

1101884_ou_pp

Silver
Tinfoil-style fabrics were all over the runways, both in accessories, footwear, and apparel. If you’re not feeling brave enough to rock a pair of silver boots or a metallic silver dress, a sleek silver purse is the perfect alternative, especially if you’d like to embrace a look that’s a mix of both glamorous and retro.

 

4c43b284-3d9e-4692-89ab-dec2df5e7686

Transparent
Transparent bags were all the rage in 2018, popping up in a multitude of styles (we’re obsessed with the Staud style), proving that what’s on the inside is just as important as the outside.

Can you believe it… 2019 is just around the corner.  This means ‘new year, new me, new style’. With the New Year coming in, it’s time to bring in some new trends as well. SNTF has compiled a list of the best up and coming trends of 2019 that you’ll be dying to get your hands on ASAP.

feather-fashion-trend-230439-1542993631445-image.500x0c

Feathers
While faux fur was a huge thing this year (think fur bombers, teddy bear jackets), in 2019 it will be feathers. Some of you might automatically think bright yellow Big Bird vibes, but don’t worry this is a super classy trend. Replace those faux fur coats (or add to the collection) with feathered jackets, feather detailing on dresses, and even purses. Trust us, this trend will be everywhere this year!

14362809353_f886110eab_o

Sage Green
Move over emerald green, there’s a new shade in town. We’ve already seen celebrities rocking this colour in so many different ways. From dresses and skirts to suits and shoes, in 2019, you’ll be able to find nearly everything in sage green.

sweater_400

80’s Wear
Neon, spandex, and all the best of the 80s will be making a comeback. We saw it all in 2018, decades making a nostalgic comeback. The next to arrive is an ode to the 1980s. One of the biggest throwback trends will be denim. The acid wash will be seen nearly everywhere.

8dc69b480f3c2ba2714bb2f32b16bdea

Fringe Accessories
Much like the feather trend, we are going to see a lot more fringe – think chic western wear meets high fashion. We predict that this trend will get so big, it will move from just accessories to key outfit staples as well.

Lisbeth-Halo

Headbands
Move over Blair Waldorf, 2019 is here to steal your iconic piece back. These won’t be your typical plastic, bright coloured headbands, but more of a fashion statement piece. We’ll see a lot of lace and a lot of large, jewelled pieces. These will be the perfect melody of texture and colour, replacing bulky fashion jewelry.

style-blogger-weekend-casual-outfits-179388-1530092599524-image.500x0c

Square Toe Shoes
This trend works the best in sandals or boots. Rather than the elongating (and usually uncomfortable pointed toe shoes) the square toe makes a statement. Our favourite square-toed shoe style is the ankle boot. Pair these with cropped denim, a mini skirt or a dress and these shoes can go from casual to dressy in an instant.

black-crochet-top

Crochet
With the coming of 2019, also comes the bohemian feeling that Crochet gives off. Dresses, tops, sweaters, open weaves, tight crocheting, the options are endless. Crochet is the perfect trend to wear with a casual outfit but still make a statement.

Fashion Jobs – 5 Trends Blowing up on Instagram You Should Shop ASAP

Gone are the days that Instagram is solely for seeing what your family, friends and favourite celebrities are up to. Instead, it’s quickly become a go-to fashion resource for seeing what your fave influencers and style icons are currently rocking. And the best part is most of the time you can shop the pieces you’ve been eyeing up directly through the ap. Otherwise, you can see where the items are from and buy them conveniently in-store or online later. Today, we’re sharing all the trends we thankfully discovered on Instagram and the trends we purchased as quickly as possible. Get your credit cards ready, ladies.

marenschia_44882400_212761612964439_380598831819641389_n

Plaid
We’re definitely stocking up on chic, plaid pants this fall. We love the edgy nod to the 90s, and not to mention it’s refreshing to see something other than black pants during fall.

emilisindlev_44924903_338234156728480_5186116034728697417_n

Colourful Puffers
Solid black puffers have thankfully been replaced with bold, rainbow-hued shades and now fashion’s biggest ‘it’ girls can be seen donning puffers in crazy colours left, right and centre. Now you just need to decide which colour you like best.

viktoria.dahlberg_43817806_436804810183666_1616006188194385959_n

Teddy Coats
Shearling is having a major moment this year. We love how there are so many cute yet feminine teddy bear styles available and typically you don’t have to break the bank to rock this trend.

adenorah_40998592_313990816052034_3944762267580944824_n

Statement LBD
Whether you need a dress for the countless holiday parties you have lined up, a frock for New Year’s or maybe you just want to treat yourself to a new LBD, ditch the classic silhouettes and opt for head-turning details. Our Insta feeds have been flooded with playful details like feathers, beading, velvet and oversized shoulders, and we can’t get enough.

karolinajez_44291891_247166475961646_715959416047074590_n

Chunky, Combat Boots
We couldn’t end this list without a pair of practical yet ultra fashionable boots and we currently can’t get enough of the chunky, combat boot trend. From monochrome styles to bold whites and reds, a pair of bold combat boots are super comfortable, practical and far from ordinary.

To say this season’s hottest trends are tempting is a serious understatement. The best part is, the key trends for the season have hit both fast fashion and high fashion retailers, so regardless of your budget you can get your hands on this season’s ‘it’ trends which include animal prints, combat boots, puffer coats, plaid and shearling. Scroll down to see our trend pics for this fall and winter and shop them for yourself.

Teddy Coat

Warm and Fuzzy
Shearling is having a major moment this year. We love this cute feminine teddy bear style from H&M because it’s very on trend and you don’t have to break the bank to purchase it.

Kylie Jenner Aritzia Coat

Puffer Coat
Once the cold weather inevitably arrives, a puffer coat will be your best friend. Whether you’re stalking the mean streets, or just battling the elements a puffer that’s equal parts fashionable and practical is a must-have.

Combat Boots

Combat Boots
Another trend we’re super excited to embrace this season is the combat boot trend. We adore this hip yet edgy monochrome number from Dr. Martens — they’re super comfortable, practical and far from ordinary.

Plaid Pants

Plaid Pants
We’re definitely stocking up on chic, plaid pants this fall. We love the edgy nod to the 90s, and not to mention it’s refreshing to see something other than black pants during fall.

Leopard Print Skirt

Animal Print
This trend has finally made a strong comeback, and although in our opinion animal print is timeless, it’s great to see that designers have fully embraced this trend and now you can find animal print everything from tops and blazers to skirts and boots.

Now that fall is underway, there’s no better time to breathe some new life into your wardrobe by stocking up on some of the seasons hottest trends. From fierce prints to powerful shapes, here’s your guide to the hottest trends for the new season.

d8123bb8f884e119a61b331b629f34e4

Animal Print
Animal print is having a major moment this season, with zebra and leopard prints dominating the catwalks of Victoria Beckham, Calvin Klein, Givenchy, Balenciaga and Tom Ford. To avoid print overkill, keep the rest of your outfit pared-down and team with flats or ankle boots.

fa0678aa3344b855a26cfbfd9f5097af

Bold and Bright
Don’t think that your fall colour palette has to revolve around dark hues. From bright pinks and reds to bold blues, get ready to see major pops of vibrant hues this season.

8d0697048ad6aac4a4fdf4d49553077a

Tweed
Add a touch of masculinity to your wardrobe this season by welcoming the tweed trend. For fall, Marc Jacobs played styled oversized tweed coats with leather skirts, while Louis Vuitton’s runways were dominated by tweed skirts, making this a trend we just can’t wait to get our hands on.

84a5ba0131a0670a5e151242ca8a4357

Western
Western-inspired pieces were a major staple on fall runways, so a pair of chic cowboy-style boots, bandanas or a prairie dress are perfect for every fall wardrobe.

Screen Shot 2018-09-26 at 9.52.16 PM

High Shine
High shine is also having a moment this season, and we’re welcoming it with open arms (and bank accounts). From patent to shimmer, high shine adds a hint of glamour to any look. Rock this trend by mixing shine items with very classic pieces like a khaki trench or neutral colours for a more fashion-forward look.

Fashion Jobs – 7 ’90s Trends That are Coming Back and Here to Stay

Thursday, July 5th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canada7d4832bbfe5d494b39b70625a6013a24 (1)

Let’s be real, the ’90s were probably one of the best decades we’ve ever gone through. Not only for culture but for fashion as well. Who doesn’t want to have a dance party whenever they hear the Spice Girls, Backstreet Boys or N’SYNC?  Fans still love their music so much these groups have even planned mini-comebacks. Who didn’t love Tamagotchi, Pokemon and the fun things you would get in your cereal boxes? While some things should really stay in the ’90s, like the infamous matching denim outfits worn by Britney and Justin, some things were made to last forever, including certain fashion trends. 

Choker 

Chokers
In the ’90s, chokers were seen on every young woman. The iconic plastic, braided, dark coloured choker was an outfit staple. Now, they are found in velvet, leather or gold, the options are endless. These pieces are no longer seen as ‘teen’ jewellery, but as a real way to accessorize. 

 overalls-460x690

Overalls
Think Mary-Kate and Ashley after the Full House years, styled with cute graphic-tees and colourful crop tops. While they may have been bulky and childish back then, overalls have gotten a total makeover. Overalls are now a made with a sleeker line and a sexier feel. No longer will you feel like a painter, you’ll feel like you’re ready to take on the world.

Denim Skirt

Denim Skirts
One trend we’re thrilled to see making a comeback is denim skirts. making a huge comeback. You can find them distressed, a-line with buttons, or just plain denim. Not only can denim skirts be worn as a fun and flirty outfit to hang out with your friends, but it can also be transitioned for work. Throw on an oversized blazer, a dark denim skirt, a fitted blouse with tights and heels, and you are all set.

2-piece (1) 

Two-Piece Matching Sets
As if! Matching sets are as iconic as Cher’s yellow plaid set in Clueless. These sets have now been taken into the 21st century. Not only can you get a coordinating set in tops and skirts, but you can also find flowy trousers and a crop top. The two-piece sets of now make you feel sexier and confident rather than ‘matchy’. They are also super fun to mix and match.

nyfw_ss17_day7_033

Fanny Packs
Fanny Packs are the most convenient fashion piece you can have. Biking along the Seawall in Vancouver? You don’t want to have to worry about lugging your purse around. Throw your ID, credit cards, cash, or whatever your necessities may be, and carry them around hands-free.

 5612fb595eecaa8eefbc0e79925b8abd

High-Waisted Jeans
They were first introduced in the ‘70s, reborn in the ‘90s, and now they have been completely redesigned today. With more options than just flairs or ill-fitting grunge denim, you can now find the high-waisted ‘mom-jean’, super skinny jeggings, and distressed. Jeans can sometimes be boring, why not have some fun with high-waisted jeans.

 8fe6ce015fc908e827ad32724e220353

Strappy Heels
Circa Sex and the City, strappy heels were everywhere. Who didn’t follow SJP’s character Carrie’s, fashion choices? Everyone wanted those Manolo Blahniks she registered for when she married herself. Strappy heels are a great way to make shoes match every season of outfits. Perfect with a little mini dress or skinny jeans, these heels can be dressed up or down.

Fashion Jobs – 5 Fashion Trends Every ‘It Girl’ Will Rock this Summer

Friday, June 29th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaMain Image (1)

As nice as it is to have a closet full of classics, fashion is meant to be fun and represent your personality. I’m a firm believer that every so often you need to inject a little excitement into your day-to-day wardrobe, and that’s exactly where trends come in. This summer, there are plenty of fun fashion trends to choose from, so we’ve rounded up a selection of top trends to look out for the next time you’re looking for an It Girl-approved update.

Clear Bags

Clear Handbags
Although maybe not the most practical accessory (or the most private), these bags add an instant cool-girl vibe to any outfit they’re paired with. Whether you choose to expose all your belongings or to hide them in an inner bag à la Céline, with one of these on your arm you’re sure to be 100% on trend this season.

Crochet

Crochet
If you’re into a look that’s a little bit boho, crochet is the summer trend for you. It’s both retro and modern, depending on how you incorporate crochet into your outfit. Found this season on everything from swimwear to dresses, it’s easy to scoop up a couple of crochet pieces that you’ll be wearing all summer long.

Gingham

Gingham
There’s nothing quite like a gingham print to remind you of picnics and warm summer nights. This simple check pattern is perfect for the office, but can also be an easy print to wear to summer weddings or garden parties. It’s a trend that’s taken over many Instagram feeds lately, but this is one that you’ll come back to for seasons to come.

 

Sunglasses (3)

Mini Sunglasses
Spotted on celebs like Rihanna, Kendall Jenner, and Bella Hadid, tiny sunglasses seem to be the trend that hasn’t died out. They’ve been around for a few seasons now, but have finally started to catch on in the mainstream fashion world. Look for a frame that’s as small as you can find it, and you’ve got yourself an edgy summer accessory that’s model-approved.

Polka Dots

Polkadots
This trend may already be sitting in your closet, so go ahead and break out your spotted and dotted best! Mini polka dots are everywhere right now, but there’s really no wrong or right size of polka dots to rock this season. Take a cue from Aimee Song of Song of Style, and pair a polka-dotted cami with a blazer for an outfit that easily transitions from work to cocktails.
