Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs NYC

Ahoy August! Fashion


Ah, Le Breton – a mainstay in every girl’s wardrobe.  Reminiscent of sixties icons Jean Seberg, Francoise Hardy, Jane Birkin, the parallel lines of navy and white and that ever-flattering boat neck stay afloat during every runway season, but seem especially fresh and easy when the temperature starts to slowly drop.  Originally a uniform for French sailors, the shirt was made stylish during Chanel’s 1917 nautical themed Resort show.  Flash forward almost a century and the nautical trend is still making waves, showing up in many a Resort 2014 lookbook, with everyone from Chloe to Valentino to Rachel Zoe featuring stripes in navy and white, double-breasted blazers, and wide trousers, conjuring images of the navy circa wartime.  These seafaring trends also made a more modern appearance, surfacing in cropped swingy tops, mini dresses, and heels in striped satin and rich navy velvet, perfect for navigating the tricky waters of transitional-season dressing.

Layered jewelry is still hot this season, and more and more jewelry designers are making achieving this look super simple. If you prefer more delicate styles, try layering a family heirloom necklace in your jewelry box with a longer more modern piece to achieve minimalist style. If you prefer lots of glitz and glam, than two statement necklaces are better than one, and feel free to fill your forearm with bling. Happy layering!

When it comes to a handbag for the office, you want something that exudes professionalism. Now that may sound like a tall order, but it’s actually surprisingly easy to find. Primarily what you want to look for is a bag with great structure.  Just like a structured dress or blazer, a structured handbag has an air of sophistication that will always be in style for the office.

A great handbag can really amp up an office look; think of pairing your everyday white blouse & black trousers look with a professionally bold cobalt bag, or that little white dress with a structured bright floral handbag – it’s an easy way to take an office look from plain Jane to bright Betty.

Beach days, camping trips and weekends spent on the road are the things that make up summer. There’s nothing better than throwing a few of your favourite things into a bag and heading off for a weekend of bliss. But, there’s something not so blissful about realizing half way to your destination that you forgot your hair ties… oh no, and your favourite shorts… wait – did you even remember that amazing dress? We’ve all been there but let’s make sure we’re never there again!

First off, let’s talk about why you’re heading away – is it just for a little getaway with friends, or are you heading out to a wedding? Is it a romantic retreat with your fella, or are you heading out on the road to go camping? Once you’ve got that down then you can plan your clothing out better.

TWO DRESSES: one casual, one dressy. If you’re heading to a wedding then don’t forget to pack along a more formal dress. A casual dress will be great for all occasions from camping to winery hopping. If you’re heading off camping though, just pack along one dress and make sure it’s casual!

TWO SHIRTS: Pack along a mix of casual shirts and dressier blouses, it will allow you to create a variety of looks. By packing along options like this you allow yourself to feel as though you do not have as limited choices. Once again, skip the dressy blouse if you’re forest bound.

ONE SWEATER: Chances are you won’t need this too often during your summertime getaway, but pack along a cozy knit just in case the temperatures drop at night.

ONE JACKET: A shell jacket, such as a jean jacket, is a great layering piece and may come in handy on those cool summer nights.

ONE PAIR OF SHORTS: Pick out your favourite shorts and pack them along. Shorts are always a great option for comfortably stylish daytime looks.

ONE PAIR OF PANTS / CAPRIS: My personal favourite to pack along has to be harem pants. They are comfortable to wear while travelling & can be dressed up easily with a funky blouse, some bold accessories & a great pair of heels.  Wear these on the ride up with one of your shirts for a comfy road trip look.

SHOES: One pair of heels (forget packing these though if you’re camping!), one pair of flats. If you’re heading off camping then make sure you pack along either one pair of runners or slip-ons.

SWIMWEAR:  pack along a towel, a sunhat, your favourite swimsuit & a cover-up if you’re going to be hanging out at the beach, lake or poolside.

MISC.: Undergarments, socks, slippers, beauty bag with all your beauty & hygiene essentials

What’s better than seasonal fashion inspiration from couture designer runways? Style inspiration from celebs on the street! I have fallen guilty of scrolling through fashion blogs and endless “summer outfit” pins. And now that summer is coming to an end, it’s time to reflect on the It Girls who I’d deem as this season’s “Best Dressed”.

it girl taylor swift

Taylor Swift (1 & 2)

This girl get’s everything right, from the mega-popular coral tones to the matching pieces. Her pairing of crops and skirts gets an A++, but who wouldn’t look that good with legs like hers?!

it girl rosie huntington-whitely

Rosie Huntington-Whitely (3 & 4)

This model-turned-actress has been off the radar since her role in Transformers, but her summer style is definitely still on par. She effortlessly pulls off monochrome trends that are taking over. Not to mention that pastel purse is immaculate!

summer it girls, reese, miranda, kiera

Reese Witherspoon, Miranda Kerr, and Kiera Knightley (5, 6, & 7)
White on white is my favourite trend this season, and Reese wears it best, with the cutest cut-out accents. Miranda is known for her flawless simple looks, and doesn’t disappoint this summer either. And I can’t get enough of Kiera’s pastel top and cropped pants!

What do all of these Summer It Girls have in common? A hard-to-duplicate air of confidence, that radiates from their shades to their heels. Perhaps that’s the biggest take-away style tip of the season.
