The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – April 18, 2014 Edition


Jill Lansky of The August Diaries, Vancouver

Spring has sprung in our favourite Canadian style bloggers’ wardrobes. Flowers have begun blooming (in some parts of the country), and likewise greenery is making appearances in bloggers’ sartorial odes to the arrival of spring.

This week, Ania paired a foliage print collared shirt with white trousers for a cool, mensy vibe, Marie sported rose print cropped pants in the perfect transitional look, and Ivy donned a cute palm tree print sweatshirt for a visit to see the cherry blossoms that have already bloomed in Vancouver.

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.

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 7, 2014 Edition


Vanessa Hong of The Haute Pursuit, Vancouver/Beijing

This week, Canadian style bloggers across the country had a serious case of the blues. We’re hypothesizing that displeasure with the frigid temperatures and abundance of snow finally manifested itself in, literally, some very blue outfits. Wearing their feelings? We totally get it.

Vanessa H. rocked a beautiful baby blue coat we’re obsessing over, Vanessa C. paired an uber-chic navy coat with leather jogging pants, and Samantha donned a monochromatic getup from hat to leopard print scarf to psychedelic taffeta pants.

You know who wasn’t feeling blue though? Ania, who was sporting a pretty little printed romper while in Los Cabos, Mexico. And now we’re seeing green.

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – Best of 2013!

Started in 2012, The Canadian Street Style Lookbook really hit its stride in its first full year, and it was all thanks to the very fashionable style bloggers we featured from coast to coast. With over 400 looks served up in our weekly round-ups in 2013, one fact became abundantly clear: we’re one stylish nation. From the Pantone colour of the year emerald green to leather everything to that inescapable Zara skort, our favourite bloggers rocked all of the year’s biggest trends, but they also marched to the beat of their own style drum.

Over the last 12 months, established stars like Samantha, Caillianne and Chloe Beckerman of Beckerman Bite Plate and Nelia Belkova of Style Blog continued to awe and inspire us, Lookbook mainstays like Ania Boniecka of Ania.B, Ivy Xu of This Is What We Do and Krystin Lee of Suburban Faux Pas took their sartorial games to the next level, and newcomers like Sasha Exeter of So Sasha and Vanessa Cesario of The Brunette Salad arrived on the scene with a fashionable bang.

With week after week of ultra-chic ensembles, selecting just 10 of our favourites was an impossible task…so we chose 20 instead. Thank you to all the ladies and gents we featured in 2013 for a year’s worth of blog fodder – we bow down to your sartorial talents. We can’t wait to show you lovely readers what Canadian style bloggers from across the country, including Lookbook regulars and new faces we’ve yet to discover, are wearing in 2014!


Alexandra Nikolajev of I’m A Little, Toronto
A fresh, preppy take on the Canadian Tuxedo, which made a triumphant return to the style scene this year. Done with gold accessories and a touch of leopard, double denim never looked better.


Alyssa Lau of The Ordinary Peoples, Edmonton
The statement coat doesn’t get much bolder than in this metallic hue, styled to perfection with neutrals by Edmonton’s fashion blogging golden girl, a Lookbook regular.


Ania Boniecka of Ania.B, Victoria
This Calgary native served up chic look after chic look all year. This effortless, head-to-toe black getup stole our hearts, but we could have easily included another handful of Ania’s outfits in this year-end round-up. She’s just that good.


Anik Lacasse-Richard of Montreal In Style, Montreal
Leopard print and burgundy leather are a match made in style heaven, and we’d expect nothing less from this fierce Montrealer. She never fails to impress with her non-stop stream of edgy ensembles.


Anonymous by Ania Boniecka of Ania.B, Calgary
The classic black-and-white colour combo was a huge trend this year, but done with a strategically placed pop of orange (and the most amazing round bob!)? A standout look.

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – July 19, 2013 Edition


Lily Nguyen of Bleed For Fashion, Vancouver

It’s been hot, hot, hot this past week, but snowstorms don’t stop Canadian bloggers from doing their thing, and neither do heatwaves. They’re still managing to look fresh-faced and chic in the sweltering temperatures, and that’s a definite feat. A key ingredient to these stylish summer getups? The perfect pair of sunglasses.

Fabulous sunnies can take an outfit to the next level, and Nelia‘s oversized black shades and an anonymous Calgarian’s perfectly colour co-ordinated pair (snapped by Ania) do exactly that. Our favourite pair this week though has to be Lily‘s heart-shaped novelty sunglasses. They’re absolutely adorable, delightfully kitschy, and even match her bicycle.

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – July 5, 2013 Edition


Anonymous for Lookbook.nu, Canada

This week, a memo about breaking out the cute, summery frocks apparently went out across the country, and our favourite Canadian style bloggers responded in full force.

There was Lisa‘s architectural, Gatsby-esque ivory mini dress on one end of the spectrum, and Mo and Jen‘s vibrant, tropical-print numbers on the other. And then, of course, there was that drop-dead gorgeous, ruffled Lanvin sported by an anonymous Canadian Lookbook.nu user to her prom (!!!). Off-the-charts amazing, that one.

If only our prom outfits had been half as stylish…then we wouldn’t have to hide the photos.

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – May 31, 2013 Edition


Julia Monson of Julia Monson, Toronto

Last week on the Lookbook, it was all abouts shorts, shorts, shorts. This week? Summery frocks and bare gams.

Julia served up a look that was part angel, part surfer girl, donning a blue abstract print dress and matching floral headband. Cara‘s ensemble was just as eye-catching, with her palm tree print number and fierce lace-up sandals.

Gracie sported what she termed a “psychadelic” gemstone print dress under a leather biker jacket – obviously a year-round necessity. Bianca couldn’t resist a touch of leather too; she decided to go sweet this week, with an off-the-shoulder rose-print frock and an unexpected leather ball cap. Nice touch.
