The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – August 29, 2014 Edition


Liz Clark of Elizabeth Victoria Clark, Toronto

Fall’s a-coming, and Canadian style bloggers are choosing to embrace its arrival and the sartorial possibilities it brings rather than hold on to their summery frocks and short-shorts for dear life. It’s already happening: all of our favourite things about autumn dressing emerged this week on the style blogs, and we couldn’t be happier.

Leather jackets? Check – courtesy of Anik. Brogues? Check – thanks to Ania. Tweed? Check – compliments of Jackline. And we can’t forget our current obsession, the almighty jumpsuit – a check there as well, merci Gabrielle.

The seasonal transition is happening, so time to assess and reorganize those wardrobes, ladies and gents. As Alanna says, there’s just no rest for the rad.

With everyone on the east coast in Montreal for Osheaga (or so it seemed, at least), this past week was all about festival fashion on the Canadian style blogs.

Anik, Gabrielle and Hawley showed us how it’s done: Anik toughened up a pretty floral maxi with ankle boots and heavy statement jewelry, Gabrielle rocked some summer leather in a fierce, perforated vest, and Hawley topped a summery printed frock off with an angelic crown braid.

This week on the Canadian style blogs, it was all about fun and fabulous prints. From Jenny‘s floral frock to Alex‘s striped blazer, Krystin‘s checked dress to Gabrielle‘s palm tree-print top, every outfit was an ode to another print.

Bloggers from across the country have gone print happy and – thanks to them – so have we.

Fashion bloggers across the country embraced the green part of the colour wheel this week – right in line with our own current obsession with the hue.

Vancouverites Lily and Alanna both sported mint-y fresh ensembles; the former rocked a Carrie Bradshaw-esque tulle skirt, while the latter declared the state of her life – busy with a capital ‘B’! – on a cropped tank. On the other end of the green spectrum, Toronto’s Sonya and Lookbook newcomer Elif, from Montreal, both showed teal some love – through a girly frock and statement pants respectively.

The bottom line? We’re seeing green, and we couldn’t be happier about it.

Nothing says spring like a bevy of floral print outfits, which is exactly what Canadian bloggers across the country served up this week.

Montreal’s Gabrielle rocked a floral bomber for a sporty vibe, Calgary’s Ania donned a lovely floral A-line skirt on her Asia trip, Vancouver’s Lydia edged up a summery frock with a denim moto jacket, and Lookbook newcomer Liat wore floral-on-floral for the ultimate in floral ensembles.

This week was all about the sweaters on Canadian style blogs, and it looks like everyone got the memo.

From Jen‘s chic camel sweater coat in Vancouver and Gabrielle‘s lightweight checked pullover in Montreal to Caillianne‘s asymmetrical knit over in Paris and Vanessa’s oversized reptilian sweatshirt over in Beijing, our favourite bloggers rocked their sweaters across our fair nation and even represented abroad.

Sweater season is definitely on. Are you embracing its arrival?

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – January 4, 2013 Edition

A few days ago S and I went outside – coatless – to take photos for our new feature, Shop Like a Backseat Styler, and I must say, it wasn’t easy. S suggested that I pose in the snow against a backdrop of conifers, which seemed like a great idea – very editorial – until I stepped onto the pristine layer of snow and my loafers disappeared in the snow. We nixed the plan for a scenic setting and decided to shoot in the middle of the street, and as S took shots of me I tried to pretend that the cold wind wasn’t blowing my hair into odd formations or making my teeth chatter. When we got home to look at the photos, I discovered that my desperate attempts to look casually cheerful had turned out looking more like a grimace….

How do style bloggers regularly brave the cold to share their outfits with us? On some occasions sheer willpower is sufficient to venture outdoors, but when that’s not enough amazing outerwear is the answer. Ania’s wool jacket stands out with its speckled texture and dramatic lapels, while Joandy’s sweeping coat combined with punches of bright yellow make for a powerful look. It should come as no surprise that the ever avant-garde Sam recently sported the cozy Maison Martin Margiela x H&M duvet jacket. I imagine it feels like a perpetual hug….

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – July 6, 2012 Edition


Jen Tam of Her Waise Choice, Vancouver

This week, Canadian style blogs put on a lesson in wearing prints. We got palm trees, swans, and even floral two ways: sophisticated and ladylike from Jen, and loud and outrageous from Niki.

Jen styled her floral print pencil skirt with a classic black boucle jacket and black patent shoes, opting for a muted colour palette. Niki, on the other hand, did the opposite; she accessorized her colourful floral blouse and shorts ensemble with equally eye-catching sunglasses and wedges. We adored both looks.

M’c Kenneth seems to have gotten the same memo Niki did. His turquoise and green palm tree print shirt, fuchsia blazer and bright white shorts combined for a perfectly-orchestrated colour explosion. Little fashionisto indeed.

Not feeling the flora? How about some fauna. Ivy paired her lovely swan print blouse with matching teal pumps and a flower-adorned box clutch for a rather whimsical summer look.

4 Vancouver bloggers, 4 ways to wear prints. So, what’s the sartorial plan for next week?
