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.


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.


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.


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.


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.

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. 


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. 


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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

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.

Fashion Jobs – Trend Alert: Stripes

Thursday, February 15th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canadastripes

Similar to polka dots, stripes are one of the most recurring prints in the domain of fashion trends. Vertical or horizontal, wide or slim, stripes are universal and timeless. Even if you’re an individual who shies away from prints, there is still a good chance that you will wear lines once in your life. To fashion experts, stripes are generally considered neutrals because of their versatility. They are so versatile they can be coordinated with other prints and are appropriate for practically any occasion. The comeback of stripes this year timed perfectly with the end of the winter approaching, which is an implication to prep our wardrobe for the warmer seasons ahead! To further hype you up for spring and summer, check out some of these chic striped pieces that are suitable for any outfit!


Striped Top
As if wearing a striped top isn’t a stand out enough, wear one with ruffles or fringe to exude total sophistication like this top from Club Monaco. Also, don’t be daunted to wear horizontal stripes because they exhibit as much style as vertical stripes.

Shop the look: Roverbs Top, $188, available at Club Monaco


Striped Bottoms
Wearing striped pants can be intimidating as it provides more coverage. Two advantages of wearing lines beneath are: they make your legs look a mile long and they instantly dress an outfit up. Coordinate them with a basic top for a balanced look or if you’re adventurous enough, wear a different printed top.


Shop the look: Stripe Trousers, $49.90, available at Zara


Striped Dress
Like striped pants, striped dresses also have the tendency to elongate the body, especially if they go past the knee. Make sure to coordinate with basic accessories to harmonize your overall look.

Shop the look: Fitted Dress, $39.99, available at H&M


Stiped Accessories
Again, if you need that quick statement pop in your outfit, a striped accessory is your friend.


Shop the look: Skinny Striped Silk Scarf, $25.56 available at J.Crew

Fashion Jobs – 5 Styles To Get You Rocking the Red Boot Trend

Wednesday, February 14th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaSNTF_RedBoots_Inspiration Image Street Style

A few months ago we talked the white boot trend which is still going strong even through the winter -especially as we look through the street style from Fashion Week season! But make room on your shoe rack because red boots are coming in just as hot. This bold colour choice can be a bit intimidating at first especially on a shoe but we guarantee the minute you put on a pair, you’ll be feeling like there are no boots like red ones!


There really isn’t anything that red boots don’t look good with; from leopard print and camo to denim and leather, many don’t realize that red can be treated just like a neutral when it comes to pairing it with other colours and prints. If you’re feeling brave and looking to score your first (or next) pair of red boots, check out these great styles we just cannot decide over.

STNF_Red Boots_Jeffrey Campbell Siren Bootie

On With A Bang
If you’re going to go red you might as well go big and these Jeffrey Campbell patent booties are it! These pretties have a high enough heel making them great for a night out with your girls but with its flared block style, it means they’re also perfect for running quick errands or a Saturday shopping trip to the mall. This style is a bit bold so they might not be for everyone, but for an edgier fashionista, these should be a dream!

SNTF_Red Boots_AnnieBing_Stevie Boot

The Must Have Booties
Have you been seeing pretty much everyone wearing the most adorable booties on the ‘gram? You’re probably swooning over the Stevie boots by Annie Bing and honestly we don’t blame you. These boots are totally having a moment and currently come in four colours, but we’re committed to these metallic red ones that just scream classic rock ‘n’ roll. Their slim but modest height heel make them a better choice for those dryer winter days and into the spring, or to wear inside at work.

STNF_Red Boots_Steven Madden Slammin Boot

Vixen Vibes
For those of you looking for the perfect boot for your next date night, look no further than these jaw dropping over the knee stiletto boots by Steve Madden. It’s a sleek sock boot style thanks to it’s stretchy fabric that will go perfectly with literally anything in your closet from your favourite little black dress, to a t-shirt and denim or a casual oversized sweater dress. Our advice for rocking these boots is keeping it clean and simple to allow the boots to be the focus of your outfit.

STNF_Red Boots_Isabel Marant Red Adenn Boots

Just To Say You Love You
Red is no doubt the colour of passion and love, so why not treat yourself with these amazing Isabel Marant calfskin leather booties like we’re dying to do?! We are obsessing over their unique shape thanks to the triangular heel and v shaped foot opening which is a huge trend right now in footwear. We’re dying to wear these with our favourite raw hemmed denim and go to biker jacket for a the perfect street chic look.

SNTF_Red Boots_Topshop Andi Ankle Boots

Flat, But Not Boring
You know we couldn’t have a boot list without including one flat style, and we think this Topshop pair fits right in with the rest! This boot really has it all from great western inspired buckles to a red snake print leather that is still somehow subtle enough to pair well with pretty much anything in your closet. And don’t think those buckles are just for show… they actually work so you can adjust the fit or be a little rebel and leave a couple open!

Fashion Jobs – 5 Accessories Making a Comeback

Friday, August 25th, 2017

ST95-ADSIvana inspo image

We all love a good comeback accessory. Sometimes we can’t accept it or choose to deny it, but they, in fact, bring new meaning to our closets. We’re much older from when these items were first introduced, so we have learned from our styling mistakes, but a comeback means redemption and the chance to make things right.


We have kept our eyes open and noticed some exciting accessories on our fashion radars that are innovative and trendy. You forget once upon a time ago these pieces were staples and seen on runways everywhere, but now it’s refreshing to see how they are styled today and how these items can be the inspiration behind your next outfit. Here are a few accessories you should give a try if you don’t have them in your closet already.

newsboyhat kendall

Newsboy Cap
There’s no doubt we’ve spotted the newsboy hat around town and we have to admit, we’re low-key obsessed.  We love how this vintage look brings a Parisian cool girl feel to the simplest of outfits, as seen on Kendall Jenner. Whether you want to keep it simple or go all out, we’ve seen these toppers revamped with edgy studs and leather straps to make them modern, youthful, and an all year staple. 

newsboy anthro

Shop the Look: Caleb Engineer Hat, $58, available at Anthropology

hoop ear rihanna

Hoop Earrings
We love a good statement earring, something that speaks volumes to your style and fashion choices. But not all statements have to be loud and visible. The hoop earring is understated yet edgy and works for all women of different ages and personal styles. What’s great is the variety of sizes that they come in, which means you can always find a hoop to suit your mood.

Shop the Look: Baby Samira Hoops, $350, available at Jennifer Fisher

Fanny Pack
From celebrities to style bloggers the fanny pack is having a resurgence as we speak. The retro accessory has brought back memories as the ’90s ‘hand free’ bag, and now it’s making way as the new must-have item for fall. Yes, it’s an acquired style, but having an option where you don’t have to carry your life in a handbag does sound great. Worn mostly across the body, it’s an effortless way to add a sporty chic element to an outfit, whether a blazer or a day dress. It’s definitely worth a try.  

fanny pack gucci

Shop the Look: Gucci GG Marmont Belt Bag, $959, available at Net-a-Porter

scarf inspo

Print Silk Scarves
When thinking about silk scarves we imagine luxe fabrics and elaborate masterpieces of art draped around our necks, blowing fearlessly in the wind. But it’s not an everyday accessory; it has to be planned out with the proper outfit. But thankfully the silk scarf has been seen more frequently, worn in beautiful knots, as well as accessorized around purse straps. This piece not only looks fab, it’s multifunctional and instantly changes up your look.

Shop the Look: Destination Italian Silk Scarf in Capri Print, $90, available at J. Crew

kitten heel

Kitten Heels
Finally, we couldn’t have been more thrilled to hear the kitten heel is back in style. Our six inches are thankfully taking a back seat and giving our precious toes a break. The kitten heel is sophisticated and classic but with the many styles to choose from – sling backs to a block heel – there is a fit for every fashion personality.

Fashion Jobs – How to Wear Shine and Still Look Chic

Thursday, August 17th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canadashine inspoShimmery and sparkly pieces can be daunting to wear and often times are disregarded for fear of looking like a disco ball from the ’80s. But metallic has the power and charm to turn a dull and tired outfit into high fashion glam with total ease and confidence. Runways and designers have shown how shine and shimmer can be soft, feminine, and accessible to incorporate into an everyday look no matter what season it is. Sheen isn’t just for the bold and eccentric, but also for our minimalistic gals who love clean lines and timeless pieces.  From skirts to shoes, here are five stylish ways to rock the shiny trend now.

shine bag inspo
Like all new trends, a great way to experiment and determine if a style is right for you is with accessories, starting off with a great bag. A metallic bag is a great accent to any outfit and doesn’t have to be intended only as an evening piece. A backpack or a cross body are great options to show your cool girl side.

shine bag mcqShop the Look: McQ Alexander McQueen Loveless Backpack, $750, available at Farfetch

shine skirtSkirt
One fashion staple that we just can’t get enough of is a statement skirt that is both flattering and multifunctional. Not only are they appropriate for the office, but they also double as a go-to weekend piece when paired with laid-back sneakers. A shimmery metallic skirt hits all our fashion requirements giving you chic elegance whether it’s for an occasion or Sunday brunch.

shine skirt topshopShop the Look: Boutique Foil Assymetric Foil Skirt, $270, available at TopShop

shine shoes inspo

Every woman needs a metallic heel and/or shoe in her closet. It gives flair to the casual jeans and t-shirt combo, and a wow factor to an elegant dress for an evening out. If a full metallic shoe is too much try a metallic cap toe detail instead or a blucher lace up for subtlety.

shine jacket  (1)Jacket
The good thing with metallic is it’s in style year round and a great staple to have in your closet. Need something to break up all black? Throw on a short metallic biker jacket and be complemented everywhere you go. Canadian weather needs a jacket more often than not so why not have a few fashionable metallic pieces to easily throw on over any outfit?

shine jacket revolve

A dress with shine automatically sounds like a fashion NO, but with the right fabric and silhouette, it can be the next best thing in fashion since statement sleeves and mom jeans. Not to mention the delicate and feminine quality of a light metallic silk dress is gorgeous and timeless, and you will make any excuse to wear it for every outing.
