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.

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.

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.

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.

Fashion Jobs – How to Get Back to Your Work Routine After the Holidays

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2019

aHR0cCUzQSUyRiUyRnphbml0YS5jb20lMkZ3cC1jb250ZW50JTJGdXBsb2FkcyUyRjIwMTYlMkYwNyUyRmRyZWEtY2hvbmctd29ya3NwYWNlLmpwZw==

The time between Christmas and New Year’s, when you don’t really know what day it really affects your motivation and willingness to go back to work in January, no matter how much you love your job. In that short amount of time, you get used to having no set structure and lounging around, it makes it hard to get back to the grind. With that being said, here are a few sure-fire ways to ensure you can get back into your routine after the holidays.

 

Prep the Night Before
Waking up to an alarm for the first time in who knows how many days is exhausting. If you prep the night before, you can hit snooze a few extra times. Pick your outfit the night before, prep your lunch and even your breakfast, and then try and get to bed a bit earlier than normal. Having as much sleep as you can will help you feel ready to face the workday.

 

Don’t Try to Tackle Everything at Once
Let’s face it, we all know that even though your out of office email was set, your inbox is going to be overflowing. You’re going to have some tasks that you left pre-holidays because you were settling into vacation mode a bit early. Don’t fret, everything will eventually get done. It can be overwhelming but complete each thing one by one.

 

Create a to-do List
Look at everything you have in front of you, and make a concise list. What do you need to do and for when? This way with the holiday pile up, nothing will be missed and all your tasks will be completed. The overwhelming chaos of ‘to-do’s’ will be nicely listed in front of you.

Work-your--do-list

Prioritize
After looking at your to-do list, what are the most important things that need to be completed? Number them in a way that works for you. It could be a 1 to 10 situation, or by importance. For example, these tasks can be labelled as a ‘1’, meaning most important, drop everything and complete this now. Another batch can be labelled as a ‘2’, meaning this is important, but the world is not going to end if I don’t get to it right away. Lastly, you can label the remainders as a ‘3’ meaning, this needs to get done, but get to it when you get to it.

 

Take a Few Extra Breaks
For the first few days back, you’re going to be tired. It’s okay to take a few mental breaks. Step away from your screen or your task, grab a coffee, or just take a little walk around to get a bit of momentum back. We’re not saying slack off right after holidays, but listen to your body and your mind.

Fashion Jobs – The Best Career Advice You Could Ever Receive

Let’s be real – everyone tries to give out advice of some kind or another. That doesn’t mean it’s always good advice. When you’re starting a new career, or are at a crossroads with where you want to go with your career, or you just feel like you’re in a slump, this is when the advice comes the most. With so many different types of advice, it’s hard to know what is always the most beneficial, and what is not. Here at SNTF, we’ve made it easy for you. We’ve compiled a list of the best career advice you could ever receive.

 

Go Big or Go Home
No goal is too big. If you are afraid of failing, leave the fear behind you and go big or go home. Put your all in everything you do, no matter how menial it may seem. If you give your best and your hardest, you will be rewarded.

 

Trust Your Gut
That feeling deep inside, whether its excitement, anxiety, fear, or something unsettling, your gut always knows. If you’re unsure about a path to take, trust your instincts. Go with what feels right for you. At the end of the day, you are the one who will make and live with your choices, so follow your intuition and gut feelings.

fmarin-180907-toryburch

Pursue Your Passions
No matter what your passion may be, always pursue them. If you don’t you may find yourself unhappy in your career path, wishing that you’d made different choices when you were younger. If you want to pursue a far-fetched dream, make it a realistic goal and go for it.

 

Be Kind
No matter what career path you may lead, there is always an element of cut-throat competition. Whether it be applying for a position, working towards a promotion, or making that deal. No matter where the pressure may come from, and who you may be competing against, it never hurts to be kind. If you do everything with a smile on your face and help others along the way, you’ll get noticed for all the right reasons. You never know, that person you beat, or who may have beaten you, maybe a connection you need down the road.

 

Everything Happens for a Reason
As cliché as it may sound, it’s true. Thinking and believing that everything happens for a reason is more than just advice, it’s a way of life. If you fail, don’t get hung up on it. That plan wasn’t meant to happen and you will succeed down the line. Don’t get hung up on the little things, put in the work, and go with the flow.

Whether you have one or ten holiday parties lined up this Christmas, planning the perfect party outfit can quickly become a challenge in itself. You obviously want to dress weather appropriately, all while still looking like the fabulous fashionista that you are. That’s why we recommend stocking up on the following 5 items so regardless of which event you’re attending, you can instantly elevate your look and stand out from the crowd. Get party ready with our favourite holiday must-haves.

Chic Clutch
Not feeling statement jewellery? Give your accessories a break and try a chic clutch in a holiday-worthy print like sequinned, feathered or beaded. 

juliahengel_44644728_2067452320232261_8910411150130828435_n

Party Heels
Sometimes all you need to do is break the mould and try a pair of party heels other than your go-to black pumps. 

songofstyle_42992440_2236415343064916_202553514615503823_n

Statement Earrings
If you want to add an ultra-luxe, ultra-stylish finishing touch to any look, simply throw on a pair of eye-catching, beautifully designed earrings.

Bold Coat
For the winter days when your styling brain power is low, remember that adding a bold coat on top is a fantastic outfit finisher.

Playful Tights
Especially with temperatures beginning to drop, playful patterned or textured tights are the perfect way to elevate your look.

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.

The time has come when your Google calendar is full of events for the holiday season. If the exhaustion burnout won’t get to you, the stress of picking each holiday outfit might. Finding the perfect trends to ‘wow’ everyone with at your next holiday party can be daunting. However, Style Nine to Five have made the task that much easier with our newest compiled list of trends that will win you best dressed at your next holiday party. 

 Zz02ZGJjNmNkMWIyMjMyOTE1NTc4YzFiNmU4MTg2NWI0YQ==

Velvet
Velvet is popping up everywhere this holiday season and you have your pick of the lot with this trend. Most comfortable in a jumpsuit, grab a jewel toned velvet one. Want to wear a dress? Grab a burgundy velvet wrap dress. Have your favourite blouse you want to pair with a skirt? There’s a velvet option for that.

 ballet-1-of-1-500x750

Emerald Green
When we think of the holiday season 2018, we think emerald green. From shoes to bags to jackets to tops, this colour is here for the season. Emerald green is the new, elegant colour to replace that traditional Christmas green you have in mind. Best thing yet, you can wear this colour outside of the holiday season.

 midi-skirt-768x1152

Midi – Pleated Skirts
Pair with your favourite sweater to make this skirt scream holiday. Not only will you look super cute, you will also have tonnes of room for when you eat all that yummy holiday food. Most pleated skirts have an elastic waist, making it an ultra-comfortable, yet classic, look.

Y15898

 holiday-style-tailored-pants

Metallics
This year, a big trend is to play up metallic tones. If you want to stick with a dress, or a skirt, add a metallic blazer to bring out the festivities. Are you a style risk taker? Break all the traditional holiday party rules and wear metallic trousers and a lace camisole. Your outfit will be the talk of the party. First outfit available at The Latest Scoop!

 beautiful-work-outfit-ideas-for-career-women-19

Two Piece Suit
What demands the attention in the room more than a powerful woman in a suit? This doesn’t have to be your plain jane black, basic suit. You can play with prints and colours, too. If you want to make even more of a statement, skip the shirt all together and use a structured blazer as your top – just make sure it’s still appropriate if it is a work function.

Fashion Jobs – 5 Footwear Trends to Try This Winter

From coast to coast, winter-like weather has arrived in Canada. And while the most obvious footwear women tend to think of when the colder weather hits are bulky and insulated boots, however, there are so many other fashion-forward options available this season that will have you strutting like a style influencer at New York Fashion Week. So rather than adding yet another pair of dull, black boots to your repertoire this season, we wanted to share our favourite footwear trends that are turning heads for all the right reasons and deserve a spot on your winter must-haves list ASAP.

Screen Shot 2018-11-20 at 9.26.36 PM

White Boots
Whoever said don’t wear white after Labour Day clearly wasn’t forecasting one of the season hottest footwear trends: white boots. From pointed and rounded toes to Chelsea style to stiletto heels, white boots are a MUST this season.

Screen Shot 2018-11-20 at 9.34.17 PM

Chunky Sneakers
From Gucci and Balenciaga to Chanel and Acne, many of the fashion world’s biggest designers have been releasing their own variation of the fashion-forward chunky sneaker all year long. But luckily for those looking for a more cost-effective option, basically every other designer has released their own design so you can still rock the trend like the best of them without breaking the bank.

 

14353001

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. We’re thanking the fashion gods that this ultra-practical boot became stylish just in time for winter.

TS32R18PMUL_M_1

Party Heels
From Christmas parties and New Year’s Eve soirees to every other chic event in between, you’re going to need a pair of statement heels that will go with everything you own. And a pair of metallic heels need a place in your closet ASAP if you ask us.

6019301022_2_28_1

Slouchy Boots
If you’re looking for a fashionable alternative to your go-to knee-high boots, let a pair of slouchy boots be what you go for. Not only do they look extremely luxe, your winter outfits won’t see these amazing boots coming.

Fashion Jobs – How to succeed at Your First Day on the Job

Starting a new job can be intimidating. There’re new people, new processes, new rules and an entirely new routine. That’s a lot to take in for the first day. Luckily, usually on the first day of a new job you aren’t thrown right in to sink or swim. You should be given the tools to start a foundation that you can use every day. That being said, it doesn’t hurt to be extra prepared.

 

What can you learn about your new company?
If your new company has an Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter – creep it. A lot of companies will have an Instagram story called ‘office life’ or something to that effect. Definitely watch it and study it. What does their day to day look like? Be ready for anything.

 

What is their ‘style’?
If you’re already watching your new company’s Instagram story about their office culture, study what the staff are wearing. Some companies will call for business casual, but dress up a bit more, whereas others may say business casual and it’s much more casual. This will give you a good gage on to what to wear on your first day.

5b510aafea9711b99ce23b1dce200829

What can you learn about what you’ll be doing?
It’s good to do a refresher of tools you may need. For example, if you’ll be using tools like Photoshop, InDesign, Microsoft Office, it’s good to do a refresher before your first day. Even if you think you know everything you can know about the tools, watch videos, do research, and practice. You want to impress your new coworkers and be able to walk the walk if you talk the talk.

 

Bring everything they ask for… and more
As a general rule, you’ll be asked to bring in your social insurance number and direct deposit payment information. Go the extra mile, bring some pens and paper to take notes if needed. If you have any questions that have come up before your first day, jot them down. If you have any pre-booked or preplanned vacation dates, make sure you have those on hand as well.

 

If you show up on your first day prepared and with an open mind, there is no reason why you shouldn’t succeed!

Style Nine to Five - Fashion jobs in Canada

London-Fashion-Week-AW-2018-Street-Style-1-1

What does it truly take to be successful in your career, no matter the industry? For many of us, we’re not too certain where we’ll wind up unless we experience different jobs throughout our career. Even if the job you’re in isn’t one you can see yourself staying in for a long time, always do your best and make it work for YOU.

 

One piece of advice that I’ve given time and time again in interviews, and when asked how to succeed in the fashion industry or any industry, is to go above and beyond what is asked of you on the job. Sure, this may be something that everyone is used to hearing over and over again from any professional, but I don’t think many people truly understand the importance. For example, many may start working in retail as a means to an end, never thinking that it’ll be the start of their career. What I think people often forget is the fact that many corporate hires from major fashion retailers come from within the company. If you prove yourself from an entry level position as a sales associate, you would be surprised at how many doors open for you.

 

I remember phoning Le Chateau’s head office as a 17 year old, part time sales associate, to ask about what it takes to get a job in fashion marketing. From then on out, I would create inspiration boards for the sales team during my breaks, just because I wanted to, not because it was required of me from the job. I knew that I had to make the most of what I wanted from the job, and this certainly wasn’t an attitude that I abandoned even as I climbed through the retail ranks to Store Manager and Assistant Menswear Buyer for Le Chateau. As a Store Manager, I would constantly be thinking of new ways to hit and exceed the weekly store goals. Oftentimes, the best results were from the most unconventional of ideas. From getting a popular local DJ to come into the store on a rainy Saturday, to dressing up the entire sales team in Le Chateau’s own dresses to promote the product, I enjoyed my role the most when I kept my mind busy. I think many of us spend our time simply going through the paces on the job, but it really is up to ourselves to create opportunities. When I worked as an Assistant Menswear Buyer for Le Chateau, I would go to other stores on my days off to study the latest trends, and often would buy items that I thought Le Chateau should carry to our weekly meetings. I didn’t let my job title as Assistant Buyer restrict me from doing what I felt needed to be done.

 

Your personal career growth is up to you and not your management. Create the opportunity for yourself by going above and beyond. Always work towards the position you want, not simply doing enough to get by in the position you have.

Fashion Jobs – Wool Coats That Won’t Break the Bank

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaSNTF_Wool Coats That Won't Break The Bank_Inspiration

The cold weather is not only among us, but it’s also here to stay (and getting worse) at least for the next few months so it’s time to start thinking about our cold weather outerwear. When we think winter we immediately cling to our parkas, which are not only the obvious choice but a practical one at that. No matter how warm, cozy and trendy parkas may be they’re not always the best option especially when it comes to dressing for the office. Bulky parkas can also be a bit of a hassle when commuting to work be it in your car, rideshare or while on transit during rush hour; that’s where wool coats come in handy.


Wool coats are another option to help you stay warm in the winter, and keep your look more refined and polished. There are so many styles and colours to choose from making them versatile for all preferences. If you want your coat to not only look good but keep you warm, we recommend going with something that’s at least at 20% blend. The more wool content within your jacket, the warmer you will be but keep in mind that impacts the price. To help keep you warm and your wallets full we found some great wool coat picks at affordable prices!

STNF_Wool Coats That Won't Break The Bank_Karl Lagerfeld Double-Breasted Wool-Blend Reefer Coat

Classic Coat
Everyone needs a classic wool coat in their wardrobe and who better to turn to than Karl Lagerfeld himself? This double-breasted coast is 23% wool with a belted waist at the back for a fitted look. The Reefer Coat is available in a couple other colours but nothing says classic more than the colour black.

SNTF_Wool Coats That Won't Break The Bank_Zara Menswear Coat

Menswear Inspired
Zara is one of our go-to stores for affordable wool coats that don’t only look good but keep you warm too. This light burgundy double-breasted coat is 52% wool with front flap pockets and a slit at the back. It’s the perfect pop of colour without being too aggressive, and is the perfect jacket for the upcoming holiday season!

STNF_Wool Coats That Won't Break The Bank_Something Navy Double Breasted Topper

Something Navy
If Something Navy sounds familiar it’s because it should. Style blogger Arielle Charna recently launched her first independent brand and we’re obsessed over every piece, including this topper coat. It’s a navy (duh) houndstooth with a power shoulder to envy made with 44% wool. It’s currently on sale at Nordstrom though so I’d act fast before it’s gone.

STNF_Wool Coats That Won't Break The Bank_Oak&Fort Coat 2616

Oversized
What better way to stay warm this winter than wrapping yourself in an oversized wool coat? Well, what if we told you that this is real and doesn’t have to cost you a fortune!? Oak & Fort nailed it with their Coat 2612 thanks to its oversized fit, exaggerated lapels and side pockets to keep those hands toasty. It is the most expensive pick on our list, and a bit of an investment but at over 50% wool it’s well worth it.

STNF_Wool Coats That Won't Break The Bank_H&M Wool-blend Coat

Short & Sweet
If you’re looking for the perfect jacket to wear to the office, for brunch, at the market and for family events this season then you’ve got you covered. This short cut wool-blend jacket has 40% wool with a concealed button closure and pockets. It also comes in two other colours so at that price we don’t blame you for getting more than one!
