Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs Canada

For this post, I was inspired by the concept of “getting your colours done” which is something I’ve never tried before, but am so intrigued by. We seem to focus on dressing for our body types first, and our skin tone and hair colour are factored in second. Here are four looks to enhance your natural beauty using only colour!

Even if you’re landlocked this summer and the closest body of water is the Hudson River, there’s no reason not to ride the surfer girl wave. You may be thinking wetsuits, but there’s more to surf style than a skin tight black one piece. Think exposed zippers, sleek neoprene, and easy slide-on sandals. For Spring 2014 Tommy Hilfiger looked past the ivy and collegiate prep, instead drawing inspiration from the surf culture of the West Coast, creating looks fit for the beach and the street. The scuba skirt resurfaced as well, and while it may not be totally appropriate for its namesake activity, it can easily take you from the office to cocktails, and be paired with over a zip-up crop. Your surf-inspired swimsuit? Shimmy into a pair of shorts or pull on an athletic mini or drawstring silk joggers, and you’re sidewalk-ready. How’s that for multi-purpose?

I love summer, but when it comes to shopping for the season I sometimes find myself at a loss for what to buy, keep, or replace. This got me thinking that this summer I will not purchase anything that I don’t love or will likely become disposable once Fall arrives.

The 3 key points to remember with the two outfits below are: 

• Invest in high quality basics that can be layered all year long

• Spend more on neutral coloured basics that are trend-proof

• Mix in bold accessories to make your look unique

After a long chat with fellow fashion lovers, style bloggers & clothing fanatics on Twitter, I discovered that the majority of us consider the “summer dress” the ultimate summertime must-have.  As a personal style blogger, I am constantly looking for new ways to mix and remix my wardrobe, and this summer I am dedicated to making the most of my favourite summertime go-to: The Sundress.  (*this post will show how to style a single sundress for 1.The Office 2.Date Night 3.Attending a Wedding 4.Meeting the Parents 5.Exploring the Marketplace)

OFFICE STYLE

FOR THE OFFICE:

When you’re taking your beloved sundress into the office you need to make sure you’re styling it in a professional way. Add on pieces like a blazer, sophisticated jewelry, a structured handbag and a smart looking pair of flats or wedges to “office-ify” your go-to summer dress.

Items: J.Crew Embroidered floral racer dress, $119.99, Topshop Boucle zip blazer, $116, Seychelles Thyme Metallic Wedge Sandal, $95, available at Neiman Marcus, Kate Spade Sedgwick Place Phoebe Tote Bag, Cream, $478, available at Neiman Marcus, Lee Angel Lee By Stone Statement Necklace, $78, available at SHOPBOP, Aurelie Bidermann Nympheas Cuff, $905, available at Barney’s New York 

date

DAYTIME DATE:

Heading out on a hot date but not sure how to dress up that sundress? Try adding in some strappy sandals, a cute handbag and some feminine gems to liven up your casual summertime favourite.

Items: J.Crew Embroidered floral racer dress, $168 $119.99, Schutz Celina Ankle Strap Sandals, $180 $90, available at SHOPBOP, Kate Spade ‘hawthorne Lane’ Tote, $198, available at NordstormBaublebar Crystal Plasma Drop Earrings, $34, Tory Burch Stacked Logo Stud Cuff, $215.14, available at Monnier Freres

WEDDING LOOK

WEDDING READY:

If you’re heading out to a wedding but would rather just remix your favourite sundress instead of purchasing a whole new outfit, then you’ve come to the right place! Try remixing your sundress with prim pieces like a clutch handbag, strappy sandals, and elegant jewelry.

Items: J.Crew Embroidered floral racer dress, $168 $119.99, Big Buddha ‘Orlando’ Minaudiere, $60, available at Nordstorm, Jimmy Choo Lance Wavy Strap Sandal, $850, available at Neiman Marcus, Adia Kibur Link Chain Necklace, $70, available at SHOPBOP, Elizabeth and James Windrose Pave Ring, $150, available at SHOPBOP, Suzannah Wainhouse Jewelry Pyramid Cuff, $315, available at Barney’s New York

MEET THE PARENTS

MEETING THE PARENTS:

We all know that meeting the parents can be a bit of a nerve-wracking experience. The last thing you want to worry about is what you’re wearing, so sticking to your favourite sundress may just be the way to go. Adding in simple accessories like classic stud earrings, a simple cross-body handbag and a simple pair of flats are all great ways to have approachable style while sharing your personal flare.

Items: J.Crew Embroidered floral racer dress, $168 $119.99, 3.1 Phillip Lim Devon, $395, available at Barney’s New York, Tory Burch Thea Chain Cross Body Bag, $375, available at SHOPBOP, By Boe Red Leather Knot Ring, $19, available on AmazonBaublebar Crystal Poker Face Studs, $24, Majorica Champagne Solitary Pearl Drop Necklace, $105 $63, available at Neiman Marcus

MARKETPLACE

MARKETPLACE EXPLORATION:

One of my favourite pastimes has to be exploring the Granville Island marketplace; it’s a place you can find oodles of little gems and typically I walk out with the bag full of tasty treats and a hand full of plush and pretty flowers. If you’re heading out to the marketplace in your city to do a little shopping then chances are you’re already grabbing your go-to summer sundress. Adding in some practical pieces like a cross-body purse and some basic slip-on’s will ensure you look stylish (and feel comfortable) while moseying around the flower filled aisles.

Items: J.Crew Embroidered floral racer dress, $168 $119.99, BaubleBar Slim XO Cuff, $28, Fornash Sweetie Pie Collection Earrings, $20, available on SimplySoles, Jeffrey Campbell In Love Studded d’Orsay Flats, $130, available on SHOPBOP, Mother Stretch Cotton Love Drunk Snap Jean Jacket, $380, available at StyleBop, Leslie Danzis Cushion Marquise Bib Necklace, $98 $55, available at GiltFossil Preston Crossbody, $155
