The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – April 11, 2014 Edition


Lily Nguyen of Bleed For Fashion, Vancouver

With the sun shining and the snow having melted away, spring fashion is finally emerging on the fashion blogs this week (sans goosebumps). Parkas were traded in for denim jackets, open-toe shoes started to be favoured over boots, and bare legs began to see the light of day.

Samantha rocked a pair of funky shades, Anik bared her shoulders, and Lily took her classic YSL Tribute sandals out for a spin. Are you diving head first into spring fashion too?

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – April 4, 2014 Edition


Kassandra Camponi of Kastles, Edmonton

If you get a feeling of déjà vu with this week’s edition of The Canadian Street Style Lookbook, you’re bang on. A few standout pieces that have made appearances recently are featured again, styled in a fresh new way.

Case #1: Joe Fresh‘s trompe l’oeil shirt. We first spotted it on Barbara, who knocked it out of the park with a head-to-toe black and white ensemble. This week, Lookbook newcomer Vickie paired the same shirt with a bright red perforated leather jacket for the perfect pop of colour. One shirt, worn two fantastic ways.

Case #2: Ann Taylor‘s TDF cage pencil skirt. It first showed up in the Lookbook on Christina, who got us lusting after the skirt when she expertly paired it with a black moto jacket and baby pink pumps. This week, Nelia made us want it even more with an equally fierce black, white and red getup, one of our favourite colour combos ever. Again, one skirt, worn two uber-cool ways.

Déjà vu? Why not when it looks this good.

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – March 28, 2014 Edition


Amanda by Max Kopanygin for MTV Fora, Toronto

With fashion weeks taking place both in Vancouver and Toronto last week, this week’s edition of The Canadian Street Style Lookbook is a particularly juicy one. Our favourite style bloggers from coast to coast descended on the two cities to take in the Fall 2014 collections in their fashion week best, serving up some serious eye candy.

In Vancouver, Ivy channeled her ladylike sensibility into a very feminine blush and black-and-white polka dot pairing. On the other side of the country in Toronto, Amanda (snapped by street style photographer Max Kopanygin) put on a lesson in metallic dressing. She also put forth a very strong case for socks with sandals.

We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the Beckerman sisters. The Simpsons-adorned denim jacket, yin yang handbag and bright yellow knits they sported to World Mastercard Fashion Week are proof that no one has as much fun as they do with fashion.

We’ve had #washablefashion on the brain of late.

In between shows, we snapped editors, bloggers and stylists alike, all sporting their washable best at the tents. Denim? Check. Plaid? Check. Cozy knits? Check. Washable? But of course!

Take a gander at our WMCFW street style snaps for some #washablefashion inspiration. Want to up your #washablefashion game too? Be sure to check out Pink Tartan‘s latest Washable Collection, a very stylish and practical collaboration with Tide Pods.

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – March 21, 2014 Edition


Alyssa Lau of Ordinary People, Edmonton

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook is a weekly peek into the style diaries of some of our country’s most sartorially gifted, and a visual reminder of what’s trending right now. The major takeaway from this week’s edition? Stripes are the new black.

Toronto’s Barbara and Vancouver’s Lydia both rocked striped getups this week in their Lookbook debuts. The former donned an eye-catching head-to-toe black and white look (we bow down), while the latter edged up a cute striped frock with a cool denim moto jacket and red tights (love!).

Krystin sported stripes too, pairing a simple tee with a girly tulle skirt for a lovely look indeed. The evidence is all there: black and white stripes are now officially a neutral.

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – March 14, 2014 Edition


Aleksandra Panic of SashaDoll Fashion Closet, Toronto

We’re happiest with The Canadian Street Style Lookbook when we’ve got representation from across the country. This week, we’re featuring incredibly stylish bloggers from Vancouver (we see you, Jill, in that amazing 424 Fifth photoreal jacket!), Calgary (we’ve got an ongoing style crush on you, Ania), Toronto (that skirt is everything, Christina!) and Montreal (Katia, we need those trousers in our lives).

We’ve got all the big cities covered. What we’re missing is the fashionable folks from small town Canada. If that’s you, drop us a note with your blog link. We’d love to e-meet you!

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – March 7, 2014 Edition


Alanna Durkovich of Xander Vintage, Vancouver

The fashion month tour continued on Canadian style blogs this week. Sonya took a stroll on the streets of London in a to-die-for floral print bomber, while Vanessa went for a bike ride in Paris in an impossibly cool forest green faux fur jacket and pinstripe suit combo.

The action here at home was no less sartorially inspiring. Lookbook newcomer Gloria (it’s about time, right? our bad.) didn’t let the Polar Vortex hold her down, looking chic in a textbook fur and leather ensemble. Alanna, fast becoming a Lookbook regular, sported a brightly printed jumpsuit that was a welcome pop of colour, reminding us that spring fashion is just around the corner. Or so we hope.

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – February 28, 2014 Edition


Alex of Alex’s Closet, Montreal

The skirt is making a comeback, and it – in all its different forms – made an appearance on Canadian style blogs across the country this week.

Nelia went ladylike with her snake-print midi skirt and polka dot top, Lookbook newcomer Alex looked ultra-cool in a plaid pencil skirt and moto jacket combo, and Jen combined the best of both worlds with a floral-print A-line skirt and biker jacket of her own.

Have you been braving the polar vortex in your favourite skirt too?

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – February 21, 2014 Edition


Lily Nguyen of Bleed For Fashion, Vancouver

This week’s edition of The Canadian Street Style Lookbook is an eclectic mix of looks – there’s some feminine Valentine’s Day ensembles, fierce New York Fashion Week getups and some darned good “I’m freezing but I’m going to werk it anyway” outfits.

Lily donned a stunning red-on-red-on-red look for V-day with an unexpected pairing of a Kenzo tiger sweatshirt with a tulle skirt and glittery peep-toe pumps; the Beckerman sisters killed it as per usual with their unconventional yet incredibly endearing styling and toothy grins at NYFW; and Alanna looked impossibly cool in a vintage sweater and leather dress combo as she road-tripped in Oregon.

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – February 14, 2014 Edition


Sonya Esman of Class Is Internal, Toronto

New York Fashion Week has been in full swing this week, and our favourite Canadian style bloggers have been serving up a constant stream of ultra-chic outfit snaps straight from the streets of Manhattan.

From Sonya‘s to-die-for fur-on-fur look to Vanessa‘s uber-cool biker jacket + skort combo to the Beckerman sisters’ super sporty ode to DKNY, Lookbook regulars definitely brought their sartorial A games to the Big Apple.

P.S. Happy Valentine’s Day! <3
