Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canada

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

Fashion Jobs Recruiter

If you’ve never worked with a recruiting agency, you may have a few questions and concerns (and suspicions). In an attempt to ease some of the hesitation about working with a recruiter when looking for your ideal fashion job, here’s the inside scoop on the complex world of staffing. There are a few well-known agencies in the fashion industry that specialize in the roles that you’re probably seeking. Although they are typically based in New York or California, they have access to clients who are hiring globally. Getting a foot in the door isn’t easy; why not connect with someone who can help? Below, three questions that you may have in regards to recruiters:

1. How much does a recruiter’s services cost? Working with a recruiter to find your dream job is a complimentary service to candidates. Obvious next question: How do we recruiters get paid?  They have agreements with clients who are seeking talented individuals who can impact their business.  Recruiters only get paid when they make a successful placement.  Talk about motivation! Their rate isn’t included in your package, so you don’t have to worry about the recruiter taking a cut of your salary. That being said, it’s important to note that recruiters work for their clients, not for their candidates. If they don’t have a job for you, they probably won’t reach out.

2. How do I get in touch with a recruiter? There are countless ways to reach a recruiter – LinkedIn probably comes in at number one. Keep in mind, if you’re not on LinkedIn or your profile isn’t updated, it’s going to be difficult for a recruiter to find you. A recruiter will reach out because your work experience and background may be ideal for one of their open roles. They will want to meet with you to gauge your interest, ensure you’re a good fit, and potentially submit your résumé to their client(s).

3. What can a recruiter offer that can help with my job search? If anything, a recruiter can offer guidance and reassurance during your job search. Choose someone who is knowledgeable about your particular field that has had success in the past with other candidates who were once in your position. Even if they don’t have an immediate opportunity for you, inquire about what their clients look for in an employee. Recruiters speak directly to hiring managers, so they can offer insight into any questions in regards to culture, onboarding methods, and more. Additionally, every open job isn’t posted on job boards or company websites (someone may currently be in the role, for example), but recruiters sometimes have exclusive access.

If you’re still on the fence, search online for reviews and take a look at the social media accounts of the top agencies. Feel free to make a phone call and ask if you can speak with someone who can explain the process. Finally, grow your LinkedIn network by connecting with recruiters in your industry.

Wedding season is well underway and if you’re late 20s early 30s your summer social calendar is invite-full. There are all types of weddings these days but they generally fall into one of four categories. While there’s differences between them, there are some general rules to keep in mind for good etiquette. Do not wear white. sounds second nature but you’d be surprised. If you’re going to a cultural wedding be sure to check what’s accepted and appropriate. Always abide by the dress code, it’s there for a reason. It’s always better to be overdressed than under at an event like this.

Here are some ideas to help you decipher what exactly to wear:

beach wedding

Destination Weddings: Beach weddings aren’t always super casual, if it’s a more formal event avoid shorts and dresses that resemble a beach cover-up. Otherwise, any flat sandals and a sundress is a go.

1. Calypso St Barth Sarah Asymmetric Maxi Dress, US $279

2. Aranaz Hornbill Clutch, US $163, available at Wolf & Badger

3. Sole Society Open Link Bracelet, US $24.95

4. Giuseppe Zanotti Nuvorock Embellished Leather Sandals, US $495, available at Net-a-Porter

informal

Informal Weddings: Usually backyard, cottage, or just more relaxed weddings are easy to dress for because it’s hard to go wrong. A fun or feminine sundress with wedges or embellished sandals is perfect, or even a nice skirt and top. Be careful, no matter how casual it is, jeans are not ok.

1. Calypso St Barth Suvet Beaded Silk Dupioni Dress, US $395

2. Stella & Dot Paloma Stacked Ring, $32.40

3. Henri Bendel Carlyle Wallet on a String, US $198

4. Splendid Ganes Espadrille Wedge, $98, available at Shopbop

semi formal

Semi-Formal Weddings: Perhaps the most popular dress code, semi-formal weddings require a cocktail dress. Heels, a clutch and jewelry can help dress up a printed or pastel choice.

1. Thakoon Addition Backless Flared Dress, US $364, available at Les Nouvelles

2. Ted Baker Maceey Patent Leather Peep Toe Heels, US $123, available at All Sole

3. Carolee “Making Me Blush” Pearl-Tone Stud Earrings, $23.80, available at Amazon

4. Tory Burch Brushed Metallic Adalyn Clutch, US $375

formal

Formal Weddings: The most important attire to adhere to, a formal (or black-tie) wedding means business. A formal gown or very dressy cocktail is best, with elegant jewelry, heels and a fancy clutch.

1. Donna Karan Draped Stretch-Jersey Dress, US $1,995, available at Net-a-Porter

2. Rebecca Minkoff Pave Pyramid Linear Earring, US $78

3. Aldo Gallington Clutch, $35

4. Jimmy Choo Fey Pump, $864, available at Farfetch
