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!

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!

Fashion Jobs – Menswear Trends You Need to Try Now

There’s nothing more empowering than the feeling of rocking a power suit. So why do men get all the fun suit trends?! Watching street style and runway trends this year, it is clear that the women have taken the menswear trends as their own. Here are some menswear pieces you need to try now!

Pink Power Suit

The Oversized Suit
The ultimate power suit. There is nothing that makes you feel more empowered than a pair of tailored trousers and an oversized blazer. Paired with a button up of your choice, you are good to go. You can play this look up by staying away from the basics. Get this suit in pastels, or play with different patterns. Just because it’s a menswear trend, doesn’t mean it can’t be fun and feminine.

neutrals fashion

Neutral Tones Head to Toe
2018 has become the year of the neutrals. Don’t get us wrong, colour is fun, but mixing browns and beiges and creams can be just as eye-popping. If you aren’t quite ready to leave all colour behind, you can mix rusts, camels and bolder browns to make more of an impact. Neutral tones are a great way to stand out in the crowd and work that minimalist style.

chinos ladies

Chinos
Chino pants are a great way to dress up, without being too dressy. They are the best pants in between jeans and trousers. These can be dressed up with a nice blouse or button up. Or even paired with a cute graphic tee to dress them down a bit. They are the epitome of business casual.

plaid fashion

Earthy Toned Plaids
You can add plaid in some way to nearly every outfit. It could be found in a shirt, pants, jacket, scarf or even a bag. While all plaids give off a menswear feel, earthy toned plaids give an English Countryside vibe. This plaid screams the women are taking over this trend.

oxfords

Oxfords
No trend is complete without shoes. Put away your favourite pumps and replace them with a flat pair of oxfords. Oxfords are so versatile, they can be paired with any outfit. Chinos and a tee, add some oxfords. Floral dress and tights, add some oxfords. These will become your new favourite basic shoes.

tweed

Tweed
The most iconic menswear item is the tweed jacket. I’m sure when you think of tweed you think of an old man with a cap on, smoking a pipe or working on a farm. That’s okay, we used to think that too. However now, tweed has been taken over by women’s fashion and it looks fierce. Whether it be a long duster coat or a blazer, tweed should become a staple in your wardrobe.

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.

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaSweater style

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.

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaSNTF_Florals for Fall_Inspo (1)

When we think of fall, we mostly think of cool weather, changing leaves, cozy knits and of course, pumpkin spice lattes. Whatever your symbols of fall might be, we can bet that florals probably aren’t on your list. But florals don’t only have to be for spring and summer months, especially this season with the floral trend going steady. Feminine and light florals are taken to dark and bold places for fall and are proving to be just as seasonally appropriate. Check out our stylish florals for fall picks!

SNTF_Florals for Fall_Aritzia Wilfred Millie Dress

The Dress
Floral dresses aren’t just for the spring and summer, and this chiffon dress from Aritzia is living proof. The length of this dress makes it not only versatile for the office, brunch or any upcoming fall events, but it’s also a great piece to wear as the weather changes. We love the vintage style of this dress thanks to its ruffled neckline and sleeves.

SNTF_Florals for Fall_Le Chateau Snake Embossed Floral Bag

The Bag
If you prefer to go more classic with your style but still like to play with trends, incorporating them into your accessories is a great way to do it. We love how edgy and bold yet feminine this bag is from Le Chateau thanks to the snake embossed material paired with the dark floral pattern. This bag is also super versatile thanks to its removable strap, so you can take it from a day at the office as a crossbody to after work drinks in the evening as a clutch!

SNTF_Florals for Fall_Zara Floral Jacquard Blazer & Pants

The Suit
For those who don’t mind to go all out with trends, you might want to take a look at this blazer and pants pairing from Zara! This has got to be the perfect floral for fall into the winter with its deep blues and bright gold. Wear each piece individually to the office, or wear them together to upcoming events, holiday parties or for a night out on the town!

SNTF_Florals for Fall_Hudsons Bay Karl Lagerfeld Paris Harlow Booties

The Shoes
Because wearing a full floral suit isn’t always office appropriate, we found the perfect booties to help you satisfy your floral craving. Leave it to the king of chic Karl Lagerfeld to bring some classic Parisian chicness to the trend! This low cut ankle bootie is embroidered with white flowers and has a gold accent heel and isn’t too high making them great for all-day wear. These are the perfect booties for any outfit from casual jeans to dresses!

SNTF_Florals for Fall_Hudsons Bay Topshop Floral Print Corset Blouse

The Blouse
Statement blouses are all the rage right now, being the must-have item from the likes of bloggers and fashionistas. They’re the perfect way to effortlessly dress up a pair of jeans or simple slacks without having to overthink anything. There isn’t one thing we don’t love about this blouse from its corset torso to the overall floral print. Pair this with your favourite mom jeans and white ankle booties for the perfect blogger à la brunch look!

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 Jackets You Need This Fall

Monday, September 24th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canadafd3e8b039da7291feaf4384f212ab3e3

It’s that time where it’s too cold to wear a t-shirt or cute blouse alone — jacket season has officially arrived. Layering all your favourite pieces is the best part of the season, and we have compiled a list to help. There are so many different options, it can be hard to decide which jackets to go with for the season. SNTF has picked the seven most stylish, work appropriate, jackets that you need to invest in this fall.

_103455697

The Blazer
For days when it’s not too warm, but not too cool, a blazer is the perfect jacket to have hanging in your closet. The most upcoming trend is the menswear trend, so pair this jacket with some straight legged slacks and a bright button-down shirt. Now not only will you be ahead of the fashion curve, you will also have the perfect look for work.

TS11P18MBLK_M_1

The Leather Jacket
A leather jacket is a wardrobe staple that every woman needs to invest in. This jacket can add a cool edge to any outfit or it can be paired with a feminine dress for great contrast or ripped jeans, combat boots and a turtleneck sweater for a bit of a rocker look.

MS81ELL8KZ-0041_1

The Bomber Jacket
The ultimate throwback. This past year, bomber jackets have really made a comeback. There are so many different types of bomber jacket, picking just one is hard. Our favourites are the satin version, as it gives a feminine feel to the otherwise military style. This jacket is so versatile, it is great for going to work, to date night, to weekend relaxing.

f18_07_a04_69796_15041_on_a

The Teddy Jacket
When we were younger, we loved cuddling with our teddy bears. It was comforting and kept us warm. So, why wouldn’t you buy a jacket that felt as cozy as your teddy bear? This jacket is more casual than most but still makes a fashion-forward statement.

Screen Shot 2018-09-23 at 8.49.17 PM

Sherpa Lined Jackets
These can be found in leather, denim, puffers – but our favourites are corduroy. Found in all colours, the pastel ones are the best way to move into Fall, while still living for Summer. The corduroy is an ode to the 90’s and the sherpa will keep you warm. This jacket is the best way to be uber fashionable, yet cozy at the same time.

_12094457

The Suede Moto
A fun twist on the classic leather motorcycle jacket. This softer version is great with floral dresses, or with a tight pencil skirt and blouse. Throw on a suede jacket for those crisp, dry fall days.

f18_07_a04_60590_10689_on_a

Plaid Wool Jacket
Nothing screams fall more than the classic red and black plaid. Retire your favourite flannel top and elevate your look with this statement coat. The wool twill of the coat will keep you as warm as your flannel would but looks clean and chic. Add a pair of dark denim jeans and Chelsea boots; you’re ready to be the envy of all your friends.

Fashion Jobs – Pattern Trousers Picks

Monday, September 10th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaSTNF Pattern Trouser Picks_Inspiration

Pre-fall is a fun time in fashion. We have the chance to mix styles and fabrics from two seasons to create temperature appropriate outfits while living out those last few moments of summer. Playing with patterns is a fun way to transition summer into the fall, and patterned trousers make such a statement. We’ve seen a lot of patterned two-pieces and power suits, but those matching sets can also be worn on their own for more versatility.

 

Bold patterns are coming in hotter than ever, and for those of us who like to have fun with our outfits, now is no better time to channel your inner Harry Styles. If you’re looking for a pair of fun statement bottoms to spruce up your wardrobe look no further than our pattern trouser picks!

STNF Pattern Trouser Picks_Club Monaco Heemi Houndstooth Pant

Classic Pant
Patterns don’t have to be loud, they can be subtle and classic like these houndstooth trousers from Club Monaco. We love their high waist, cropped cut and wide-ish fit, making them a perfect choice for the office, or weekends strolling through the city. Pair these with your favourite blouse for during the week, or band t-shirt while off duty!
STNF Pattern Trouser Picks_Zara Snake Print Pants

Wild Pant
Calling all those who aren’t afraid to make a statement, these pants have your name all over them! This high waisted palazzo style pant is a fun snake print in warmer tones perfect for the fall. Although they are a little thinner in material, throw a pair of warm tights underneath to wear them through the winter too!

STNF Pattern Trouser Picks_Forever 21 Geo Print Palazzo Pants

Geo Pants
When it comes to patterns, we love a good geo print. What is usually a big hit during the summer, can also be scaled down and transition into the fall for a 1960’s revival vibe. We love pairing geo prints with solid colours within the pattern to keep the look from getting too busy. Add a pair of white boots to let out your inner mod child!

STNF Pattern Trouser Picks_Babaton Rosemarie Pant

Retro Pants
Moving forward a decade with trends, are these Babaton wide-legged wool trousers in tartan. These 70’s inspired trousers come in this navy Tartan, a grey Glencheck and a brown Houndstooth all serving us a bit of a Veronica Corningstone look. We are sure these are a pair of pants you’ll want to take from the office to brunch!

STNF Pattern Trouser Picks_Dynamite Paperbag Pant with Front Tie
Fierce Pants
Another animal print taking center stage is leopard and we honestly couldn’t be happier. We’re a huge fan of paperbag pants, and we love the front tie and pleated waist of these Dynamite ones. These are another pair of pants you’ll want to wear not only on weekdays but maybe evenings and probably even weekends.

Embroidery is coming in hot for spring, as the trend continues to be seen on everything from outwear to handbags and even shoes. Jackets are a huge must-have for spring and a favourite item of most style enthusiasts as unlike winter coats or summer shorts, jackets get a wide range of use in later winter through to spring, and then again in the late summer until the last days of autumn. What is fun about embroidery is there are so many different materials to play with like beading, sequins and stitching. If you’re looking to bring the embroidered trend onto your spring outwear, our embroidered jacket picks are sure to get you swooning!

Fashion Jobs – Trend Alert: Sheer Pieces

Thursday, March 15th, 2018

sheerpieces

Transparency in clothes has been significantly contentious in the world of fashion for many years. However, thanks to millennial stylists and the avant-garde movement, the sheer style has become more universally acknowledgeable and is now conventional in high and general fashions. In addition, providing glimpses of the skin is not only perceived as artistically sensual by some people, but it’s also a manner in which an individual expresses great appreciation of their body. By incorporating chic elements and features, sheer pieces have become a staple in almost every known retail store! Check out some of these popular sheer pieces that have been greatly cherished by both commons and fashion enthusiasts!

Sheer Tops
Sheer tops have become increasingly in-demand due to their sensual yet sophisticated vibe. Perfect for summer, these pieces will never let you down no matter what event or gathering you’re attending. Just make sure you’re colour coordinating with the undergarment!

Bottoms that are transparent can be intimidating depending on style or colour. You may consider wearing a sheer bottom that provides more leg coverage if you’re worried about showing too much skin.

Sheer Dresses
Like bottoms, people may shy away from sheer dresses depending on their overall silhouette and colour. The undergarment may also depend on the length and colour of the dress. For long dresses, people usually choose to layer a slip dress or a bandeau and skirt combo underneath.  For shorter ones, cycling shorts or a shorter slip dress are recommended.
