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.

 

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.

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

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2019

Find career advice, job listings, careers, fashion jobs, social media internships, retail jobs, fashion design jobs, buying jobs, fashion stylist jobs and style careers on Style Nine to Five!

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 – 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.

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 – Get Ahead in Your Career

Fashion Jobs in Canada - Style Nine to FiveChristie Lohr - Fashion Career Advice

I know it’s so easy to fall into the trap of believing that if we just work hard, we’ll eventually be discovered and whisked off for bigger and better things. What we forget is that when it comes to career growth and development, it’s up to ourselves to seek out opportunities. Sometimes that means that we have to ask for what we want; there really isn’t anyone else to do it for us. Yes, that seems like a daunting task initially, but let me shed some more light on this topic and in turn, give you all a well needed confidence boost to just go for it.

I’ve always recognized myself as a bit of an introvert and some of my shyness has stayed with me throughout my fashion career, especially in the beginning. With that said, that has never stopped me from asking for what I want. If you’ve already proven yourself as a reliable employee, then chances are management also recognize the same ability in you. If you don’t vocalize your goals, then who would know to consider you for any new opportunities?

When I did fashion segments on Breakfast Television in 2007 as a representative for Le Chateau (with my appearances coordinated by Le Chateau’s PR), I had the idea to represent myself and showcase other brands by doing style segments as simply ‘Christie Lohr’, and not ‘Christie Lohr of Le Chateau’. I knew I already had an established relationship with Breakfast Television so I went ahead and expressed my interest in being an all-around fashion expert. I sent the email and asked. I knew that showcasing other brands would definitely increase the range of topics that could be discussed on their style segment, therefore appealing to a wider audience. Breakfast Television recognized that too as they agreed it would be a great idea and I then became their fashion expert for the next few years. Later moving on to CTV Morning Live.

 

If you see an opportunity within your current company or within a personal connection’s company, then express your interest! Start by presenting a reason as to why you think that you could be a great fit for the role and any ideas that you would execute if you did get the job. Most people in management are receptive to ideas promoting the growth of their companies. You’d be surprised at how many people would be willing to give your ideas a shot if you put them forward. Are you into fashion merchandising while you’re in a sales associate role? Then speak openly of your interest and approach your management with your personal inspiration/style boards! The worst someone can say is no, and that really isn’t so bad (it’s not personal, and remember that!).

 

Around the same year, in 2007, I requested an interview with FASHION Magazine even after 3 internship rejections because I knew in my heart that I could fulfill the position well. They agreed to the interview request and I got the internship in the end. 3 times a charm?

 

Have you ever had a missed opportunity because you were afraid to express your interest for fear of rejection? Make it a personal resolution to start asking for what you want!

 

Thanks for reading and for your continued support.

Now that fall is well underway, the inevitable chilly weather is slowly going to take over, meaning sweaters are the go-to item you need to add to your wardrobe to keep you warm this season. Not sure what styles to stock up on first? No problem. Here are five stylish and cozy sweaters you need for sweater weather.

Fall Sweatercn15874411

Cozy Neutrals
This season, every woman needs to stock up on cozy sweaters in either beige or winter white. We recommend styling it with a pair of jeans and ankle boots to keep the sweater as the focal point of the outfit.

Fall Sweater

Playful Stripes
If you’re looking for a sweater that will surely turn some heads,  you need to get your hands on this playful sweater. The chunky knit style is perfect for the fall and can be styled with a denim skirt (as pictured above) or ‘mom’ jeans and ankle boots.

Fall Sweater

Pumpkin Spice
If you’re looking for a chic yet comfy sweater and you’re not afraid of a little colour, then this sweater from H&M is perfect for you! The mustard colour is perfect for the season and will look amazing amidst the fall scenery.

Fall Sweater

The Turtleneck
Okay seriously, how stunning is this colour? The green jewel-tone hue is not only perfect for autumn but the extra fine Italian merino wool will surely keep you warm during those inevitable chilly fall nights.

Fall Sweater

The Trendsetter
We can’t get enough of this Zara number because it checks off all our favourites trends of the season. Not only are the puffed sleeves are very on trend, the multicoloured fabric is very retro, which is easily one of the hottest looks of the season. Style this bad boy with a midi skirt or trousers and you’ll be stopping traffic wherever you go.

Fashion Jobs – How to Start Your Own Business

Find fashion jobs, job listings, careers, fashion internships, social media internships, retail jobs, fashion design jobs, buying jobs, fashion stylist jobs and style careers on Style Nine to Five!

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaCHRISTIE LOHR8

 

Are you thinking about starting your own business but are afraid to take the leap? Depending on where your passions, experience, and skillsets lie, there may be several paths to take. Whenever I am asked the question, I offer advice that applied to my own personal journey. After all, what worked for me may not work for everyone, but I do believe that there are a few key points that can be applicable to any aspiring business owner.

 

The first and most important piece of advice that I will give is to find an opportunity in the market and fill it. Your solution to the problem has to be a good one, and one that a lot of people can get on board with. Sure that may sound daunting, especially if you don’t peg yourself as someone who can think outside of the box. What I will say to that is, let your past experiences and knowledge guide you towards an opportunity. I didn’t just pull the idea for Style Nine to Five out of thin air. I got the idea for it after working as a retail recruiter in the fashion industry and being so frustrated with what was available at the time to help me do my job. I was posting on general job websites and advertising in newspapers with no return. I wasn’t getting the qualified applicants for the roles I was trying to fill. It was actually one specific role that gave me the nudge. I couldn’t find anyone to be a visual display associate in Calgary. A job that was so easy to fill in every other market! I thought, WHERE are all the fashionistas?! Why aren’t they jumping on this opportunity? How can I find them? From that frustration, I thought to myself, I couldn’t be the only one that was experiencing the problem of lack of qualified applicants for the job openings that I was recruiting for. That was my lightbulb moment. I realized there was no fashion specific job board. I called up a web developer and quit my job three weeks later. After all, the fashion industry is huge, and there clearly wasn’t a job portal that was tailored for what everyone in the industry needed. Armed with that knowledge, I knew that I could be the one to solve that problem once and for all. And from that, Style Nine to Five was born in 2010 around my 30th birthday.

 

I think the moral of my story is that looking to solve a problem or to create the next best thing regarding a topic/area/industry which you know absolutely nothing about, will likely be a lot less feasible than trying to address an existing problem in an area that you are familiar and passionate about. If you are knowledgeable in an area already, then you’ve done half the work of figuring out how everything works, what’s lacking, and most importantly, what COULD work in tackling the shortcomings that you’ve identified. You’re much more likely to succeed with your idea if you’ve already paid your dues, and have an applicable and relevant knowledge to draw from.

 

Another thing I will say is, don’t start your own business for the sole purpose of making money. Of course we all want to make money, but if you begin your journey thinking that the money will just come pouring in, then you’re wrong! Be prepared to be broke for a while. Before jumping into anything, make sure you have at least 6 months to a year’s worth of savings to live on (or more but that’s what I had), as you probably won’t start to see positive cash flows for at least a year.

 

Don’t be afraid of applying for a business loan. You will need cash flow in order to grow. It’s everyone’s hope that you will have enough saved up or borrowed from family to never have to take out a penny from the bank, but not everyone will be in as fortunate a situation. I didn’t take a loan out until 4 years into running my business when I decided to expand into New York (that’s a whole other blog post). Although it’s important to not be reckless with your spending, DON’T be afraid to spend money to make money. Running a business can be expensive (website updates, advertising, hosting fees, etc.), so make sure you’re prepared for that before sending in any resignations.

 

The final piece of advice I will give is to be prepared for a lot of hard work. While you may be able to start your business while still doing your day job, there will come a time when you will have to dive in head first. In order to grow your idea into a full-fledged business, your business has to become your life. I work on Style Nine to Five from the time I wake up to the time I go to sleep, with mental breaks, gym classes, a few events, and the odd nap in between.

 

Don’t be afraid of failure and don’t expect it to happen overnight. For many types of businesses, you will need time to build up your credibility; I know that was the case for Style Nine to Five. It’s those that give up within the first year of running their business that ultimately don’t make it. Just when you feel like giving up, don’t. Remember, on the other side of that hardship, is where you’re supposed to be.

All attendees arrived ready to learn and eager to ask the questions, excited to learn how to get closer to landing the fashion job of their dreams. Style Nine to Five founder, Christie Lohr greeted students with delicious donuts from Cartems and Miriam Alden, founder of Brunette the Label, provided adorable mugs for everyone to take home to celebrate the workshop.

With one-on-one guidance, everyone was able to craft their resumes and cover letters to the exact job they wanted, and Christie provided each student with the contacts they needed to reach out to land the job.
