ATTITUDE by Jay Manuel
The Style Nine to Five team recently had the pleasure of viewing the Fall 2011 presentation at its Vancouver launch. Citing late sixties and seventies silhouettes as creative influences, key elements of the collection include contrasting fabrics, graphic prints, sleek silhouettes and pops of colour. The crowd favourite was an ultra luxe textured bomber (Monsieur Manuel coined it “the eyelash...

Ideal for highlighting your best feature or adding a sense of festivity to your look, embellished clothing creates instant glamour, while adorned accessories are a luxurious balance for an understated outfit. Moderation is key here – for maximum results select a single ornate focal piece...

Styling Tips from Rachel Matthews
Despite all the fashion magazines and style blogs out there, sometimes you just don’t have the slightest clue what you should be wearing. Canadian stylist Rachel Matthews knows it can be quite overwhelming for women to sort through the abundance of trends on the market each season to find what really suits their personality and body type. As a means to help Toronto ladies improve their...
Not ready to say goodbye to sweet skirts and sultry summer dresses? Time for some tights! Stretch your warm weather wardrobe into fall with hosiery that helps you stay toasty and on-trend. Show off your legs in bright colours, animal-print patterns, ladylike lace, or Jacobs-inspired dots—it’s a no-commitment way to try out some of this season’s hottest looks. 1 American Apparel Deco...
While a woman’s wardrobe is not complete without timeless pieces like a black blazer, a white cotton button-down shirt or a little black dress, new classics are staking claims on closet space. As seen on fall catwalks such as Chloe, Prada and The Row, clothes and accessories sporting an animal print are set to become wardrobe staples. Think cheetah and python for easy to wear looks that instantly...

Autumn is always bittersweet for me. It means crunchy leaves, gorgeous colours, and luscious fall accessories. But it also means that winter’s evil wrath is nearing closer. Considering the fact that we cannot fight Mother Nature, there is only one thing to do. Forget about our imminent hibernation and instead, embrace everything that is fabulous about this season – including beautifully chic fall...
The Fashion Rider
Synonymous with elegance and sport, the equestrian world is also one of high style. With rich fabrics like tweed and leather, in sophisticated tones of brown, black, olive and cream, equestrian inspired clothing is an impossibly chic way to add dimension to your wardrobe – experience on horseback not required. To transition seamlessly from the stables to the streets, mix timeless riding inspired...
Fall might be the fashion world’s favourite time of year. It’s not too cold that you have to sacrifice style for function, but there’s just enough chill in the air to justify a new coat. Colour blocking brights, mixed patterns, fur, and texture took center stage on the fall 2011 runways, so don’t be afraid to stray from basic black—there’s enough time for that once winter hits. (left to right)...

NYFW Highlights From A Haute Mess
Although Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York is over, the excitement is far from it (kind of like my foot pain from stomping around Manhattan in 4 inch heels for a week straight). I had the pleasure of attending NYFW last week and although this was my second season there, it was just as thrilling as my first time (the second time’s a charm, right ladies? Just kidding). I also have the pleasure...

No too long ago women were seen sporting enormous handbags that could have easily been confused as carry-on luggage by the average man. To the relief of our forearms, bags have been getting smaller in size, but certainly not any less desirable. Petite purses have been spotted on the shoulders of top trendsetters, on runways and in the collections of our favourite brands. Consider some of these...
Fall 2011 Nail Trends
After years of languishing in the land of basic red, clear polish and the classic French manicure, nail polish and nail art is taking a front seat. From colourful French manicures with a twist at Jason Wu to Minx-ified manis at Amanda Lew Kee and half-moon nail designs at Dior, colourful digits are the new must-have accessories. For Fall 2011 anything (but bare) goes. Deep hues Jason Wu. Image...

The Collar Necklace
From the look of things, the collar-shaped statement necklace is on track to being fall’s must-have accessory. Where the choker meets the bib necklace, collared neck adornments are adding glitz and new interest to our fall staples. A thick neck of semi-precious gems will enhance your go-to shift dress, while a metallic tuxedo collar can boldly accelerate your casual jean and t-shirt look. (left...

Q&A with Marlu
Toronto-based accessories designers Marta LeClair and Monika Sammut of Marlu are stars on the rise. They launched their handmade jewelry line in 2010 and have since seen their designs on the Vawk Fall 2010 runway and on the pages of Loulou, Mudd and Filler magazines. While the sisters did not initially set out to be jewelry designers ― Monika studied art history in university while Marta...
This fall, all our suspicions are being realized. Hide your computers and your calculators, because nerds are finally taking over the world. With all the tech and business knowledge necessary to navigate today’s challenges, it seems designers are realizing how attractive “dorkiness” can be. Statement spectacles are hitting the runways – from Jil Sander to Temperley and Tom Ford – and they’re...
Just In Lace
Maybe it’s the Kate Middleton effect, but we’re in love with ladylike dressing. One way to get the prim and proper look is with lace, whether it’s a dress, top, or accessory. Lace pieces have an old-fashioned vintage appeal that’s ideal for work or play, as well as a bit of a naughty side. Pair it with something edgy (think leather, studs, or sultry colour schemes) to keep it from being too sweet,...
September is here and it is time to transition your wardrobe in to cool-weather wear. Fall is all about layering, and what better way to wrap yourself up than in a modern cardigan.

Back to School
It’s back to school time! As any returning student knows, this is one of the few times of the year in which you can have a totally guilt-free shopping spree and also one of the best times to interpret trends from the fall/winter collections for practical purposes.
