When you spend winters (and “spring”) in the Northern Hemisphere, there may be no other word more beautiful than vacation – unless the word beach comes before that. But after spending six months (or more) swaddled in wool and thermal wear, a girl can be at a loss as to what to don when the plane touches down in the tropics, besides that new bikini. Instead of resorting to the same cut offs and beach cover-up, how about a pair of wide-legged draped pants or culottes, the season’s new take on shorts? Chloe, Thakoon, and J. W. Anderson all left their skinnies at home during the Resort 2014 shows, and the look is chic and unexpected, but easy enough to pull on with a crop top or light knitted sweater for breezy seaside evenings. For a more glamorous night out, step into a silky jumpsuit for a look that’s more Tulum than Studio 54. Room for more in your carry on? Sneak in some crocheted tops, dresses, and a wide-brimmed sunhat. And trust me on the sunhat.

It’s not about what you wear, but how you wear it. Crop tops have been a hot topic lately, but have gained a bad reputation because of their cut. Many women (and men) blatantly point out that this trend should be on the fall because of the limitations it causes for bigger women. Well I’m here to tell you that no matter what size you are, YOU can wear a crop top! YES you!

3. How to Wear a Crop Top, Silver Daisy

We’re for some reason under this false pretence that only tiny girls with tans can pull off a crop top, but that’s far from true. Bold women like Mindy Kaling have pulled off crops with ease, and without being a size zero. As said earlier, it’s all about HOW you wear it. Crop tops aren’t meant to be worn with low rise daisy dukes (even though that’s how we often see them styled). The best way to style a crop top is with a high-waisted pair of pants or skirt, which nearly every woman can pull off. It’s not necessary to bare your midriff; use crop tops to create an interesting line in your outfit, but don’t give away too much. Instead of showing all, show a little. This way, every size can wear a crop top and look amazing doing so!

Do you know where your shirt was made? How about the person who made it? Most of the fast fashion we’re drawn to has a backstory that we’d rather be ignorant about. But a trending wave, that’s gaining traction fast, is socially conscious clothing. Companies are making a point about transparency, who makes their clothing, what materials they use, and why it’s priced a certain way. Many of these lines also give back a portion of sales to different organizations and initiatives.

socially conscious style

1. XO Tank, $32.97, available at Wear Your Label

2. Lakamo Hoodie, $69.99, available at Ten Tree

3. Women’s Washed Pocket Tank, $30, available at Toms

4. American Flag Women’s Classic, $54, available at Toms

5. Custom Cut Tank, $32.97, available at Wear Your Label 

6. Christina Perri Shirt, $24, available at To Write Love on Her Arms

Personally, this is one of my favourite trends to come about. Since my teenage years I’ve been dreaming of starting my own fashion line that sets straight so many of the unethical policies currently used in the industry. Evidently, I was stunned when the conscious clothing line I started with a good friend took off in a matter of months. Wear Your Label is our clothing brand, that uses fashion to create conversation about mental health. We use sustainable fabrics and packaging, screenprint every item by hand, write our customers letters, and give back to different mental health initiatives. Whether you’re a fighter, survivor, or supporter of mental health, Wear Your Label provides stylish and comfortable clothing for you. It’s a way to become a part of a community that is bigger than yourself. Companies like these are shaping the new fashion industry, and I can’t wait to see how the dominoes continue to fall!

Interning

If You Haven’t Landed a Full-Time Job Post-Graduation, Consider an Internship

Landing a job post-graduation would be the ideal situation; however, as an entry-level candidate, you may have to settle for an internship to start building your résumé. A successful internship program should provide you with the experience and on-the-job skills that you need to land a full-time job. Be certain that you and your future employer are on the same page in order to get the most out of your time with the company.

If possible, the internship should align with your career goals. According to a recent survey from the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), 48.4 percent of employers say they are increasing their college hiring. If you’re not one of those new hires, it’s perfectly fine to accept a paid internship; but be sure to get clarification on the following first:

1. Your schedule. Paid interns don’t usually work five days a week, but if they do, it’s not for the entire day. The benefit is that you have sufficient time during the week to pursue your search for a full-time job. Every company is different, so be sure to ask how many hours a week you will be needed and on what days. To emphasize the idea that you possess the characteristics of a permanent employee, you can mention that you’re flexible if told in advance.

2. Your responsibilities. What will your day-to-day look like and how will this internship help you attain your ideal job? Ask for details on the projects and tasks in which you will be assisting with and express that you’re excited about making an impact on the business. If you have documents from your school that highlight the requirements of an internship program, they may come in handy here. Outlining your expectations from the beginning will alleviate any ambiguity once you start.

3. Opportunities for a permanent offer. The great thing about accepting a paid internship after graduation is that you will learn valuable skills at a company that you may want to work for post-internship. Once you’ve got your foot in the door and you start to build your network within the company, you will be able to determine whether or not you want to stay. If you do, approach your manager or the person that you report to and ask for a meeting to discuss the next steps as your internship comes to an end. Now that you’ve proven to be a valuable asset to the team, you can make a good case for keeping you on. Be prepared, this conversation can either lead to an offer, the next steps to an offer, or an honest statement that they are not looking to hire anyone full-time in your position at the moment.

Once all of these details are nailed down, get ready to take some major initiatives. You’re the only one who can make sure that you have the best internship experience.

Maybe it’s because I grew up in the Maritimes, but one of my favourite recent trends has been the classic fisherman sweater. There are many myths surrounding the origin of the fisherman sweater, but there is no doubt that if there is one transitional piece to shop for now moving into fall – it’s this incredibly versatile cable knit sweater.
