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.

Anik Lacasse-Richard of Montreal In Style, Montreal

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.

Vanessa Cesario of The Brunette Salad, Toronto

Style blogging gals across the country turned up the heat this week in some very hot getups indeed.

Vanessa showed off the gams in a skirt with a well-placed front slit, Anik successfully combined a sexy LBD with sporty sneakers, and Nichole put on a lesson in sartorial hotness in head-to-toe black.

It’s a print story this week on the Canadian style blogs, and we’re loving it.

From Alanna‘s gorgeous floral maxi dress in Vancouver to Krystin‘s pretty-in-pink look in Toronto to Katia‘s retro print-on-print action in Montreal, our nation’s most stylish put on a lesson in rocking bold, vibrant prints.

Will you be following their lead?

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.

This Saturday’s Summer Solstice marks the longest day of 2014. For style bloggers across the country that means more hours in the day to get their style snaps in – and they’ve definitely been taking advantage of the sun’s extended hours over the past week.

From Jackline and Krystin in lovely, ladylike frocks on the streets of Toronto to the Beckerman sisters in their typically delightfully outlandish looks on the MMVA’s red carpet, Canadian style bloggers officially welcomed the arrival of summer in very chic fashion.

Lily Nguyen of Bleed For Fashion, Vancouver

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.

Sonya Esman of Class Is Internal, Toronto

After fall, spring is our favourite season to dress for – the mixed bag of weather we get offers endless wardrobing potential.

Balmy day? The perfect opportunity to don a pretty printed cropped top and mini skirt matched set like Sonya did this week. Bit chilly? There’s no better time to sport that uber cool suede jacket that’s been patiently waiting all winter for its turn to come out and play, à la Gracie. Not sure what Mother Nature’s going to serve up? Don’t be afraid to have a little fun with your transitional outfits.

Rain or shine, enjoy the sartorial possibilities this long weekend offers!

The Backseat Stylers wardrobe has evolved quite a bit over the past several years: we went from a consistently black/white/grey/navy colour palette of solids to a rather colourful one embracing prints. But through this transformation we’ve continued to turn up our noses at one colour family: the pastel.

Look like a bag of Easter eggs? No thanks! Or so we thought, until we spotted Stephanie in a girly yellow midi and peach pump pairing, Justine in an ultra cool baby blue leather moto, and Krystin in a ladylike pale green eyelet pencil skirt and floral jacket – all in the same week and all making a very strong case for pastels.

So are pastels the new black? We wouldn’t go quite that far, but we’re certainly re-evaluating our stance on that part of the colour wheel. Are you on board with pastels this spring?
