The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – November 8, 2013 Edition

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?
