It’s always a little sad when the shimmer of the holidays comes to an end and our glittery outfits we were so excited to wear get cast away and shoved to the back of our closet. This year, let’s extend the season of sparkle. Here’s some inspiration to keep wearing sequins the rest of the year.

When it comes to holiday fashion, there is nothing more fun and festive than a bit of sparkle. Regardless of the time of year, I adore a dash of sequins, but there’s something so essential about it over the holiday season. Rock a sparkly dress to that holiday party, or add a bit of festive glitz to your office style and get excited (and sparkly!) this Christmas!

Fashion Jobs – Day-to-Night: Sparkle With Robson

Fashion Jobs - Robson Street Style

Fashion Jobs - Robson Street Style

With holiday season fast approaching, you may find your schedule completely filled up with parties, gatherings, and other socials, be it for work or leisure. Regardless of the occasion, mastering the art of transitioning your daytime look into the evening will be crucial, especially if you want to cut out unnecessary travel and touch-up time. Who wants to make the trek back home in order to get ready for the evening’s events, when you can do so by swapping out a few pieces, easily stored in a tote bag or your car trunk? I don’t!

 

See how Style Nine to Five’s founder Christie Lohr transformed one dress from day-to-night with pieces from Vancouver’s shopping destination Robson Street.

One clever way to turn an evening dress into an office appropriate piece is by layering a sweater over top of it. Of course, you want to pay attention to the hemline length, as micro-minis are definitely still not work-safe. In my case, I chose a lace dress that fell just above my knee, and layered on a chunky, knit funnel neck sweater. To further tame the dress for day, I wore opaque black tights and sturdy ankle boots. A wide-brimmed hat and a functional black bag finished up my daytime outfit.Fashion Jobs - Robson Street StyleFashion Jobs - Robson Street StyleFashion Jobs - Robson Street StyleFashion Jobs - Robson Street Style

When it came time to transition my look into night, I swapped out my sweater for a luxe, faux fur coat (which you can wear as your daytime coat), removed the nylons altogether, opted to change into a pair of sparkly pumps, and replaced the larger work bag with a clutch. Overall, just by swapping and/ or removing a few pieces, my outfit was completely transformed.

The second component of any great evening look (outfit aside), is some glam make-up and hair. Luckily, you can drop by the newly opened Sephora on Robson Street, which has a full service beauty salon located upstairs from the main retail section, for an evening touch-up, whether you have 15 minutes or 45 minutes for a custom makeover.

Fashion Jobs – Sparkle and Embellishment for Fall

Monday, October 6th, 2014

style nine to five - fashion jobs Fashion Trend - Fall Sparkle Fashion Trend - Fall Sparkle

This season, there will be a lot of sophisticated looks that bring together femininity and confidence. Much like our beloved chunky necklaces and statement jewellery, luxurious beads on clothing take that extra step of accessorizing down a notch. In fact, the fashionable embellishment constructs an outfit that allows you to be bold by simply slipping on a dress or a beaded sweater (really popular as it is sweater season). Not only that, it has also become common for street-wear and even your sporty joggers to incorporate the trend. My personal favorites from the runway are Fausto Puglisi’s ensemble and Tory Burch’s dress (which I have provided a link for down below). This fall we will be seeing more than the usual sweater and cardi and there’s no escaping it, the bling is here to stay!

Fashion Trend - Fall SparkleProduct List:

 

1. Tory Burch dress, $1,115, available at Net-a-Porter

2. Balmain short black mini skirt, $5,075, available at Harrods

Montreal Fashion Jobs – Shoulder to Shoulder

Wednesday, September 25th, 2013

In a world where showing cleavage and midriffs is considered sexy, this fall, there is a new body part that is stealing the show: shoulders.

The demure look of the sexy shoulder has been represented in many different ways. Some retailers are opting to use mesh around the collar area, whereas others have completely removed the material that would cover the shoulders. This is a look that is sensual in the most casual of ways. The bit of exposed shoulder will turn any outfit into a piece that is ready for a night out. The only issue with a sexy shoulder is that you need to have an appropriate bra. However, once you find a strapless that is comfortable, you’ll be able to wear this look with ease.

This fall, looking demurely sexy can be easy just by adding an exposed shoulder to your wardrobe.

1. Forever 21 Romantic Crochet Lace Pullover, $21.80

2. Urban Outfitters Sparkle & Fade Cozy Cold-Shoulder Top, $44.00

3. H&M Mess Dress, $29.95

4. Zara Sweater with Transparent Panel at Side, $54.90

5. Free People Open Shoulder Cross Back Tunic, $173.61

6. Nasty Gal Total Stud Blouse-Cream, $48.00
