The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – July 18, 2014 Edition


Alanna Durkovich of Xander Vintage, Vancouver

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.

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – June 6, 2014 Edition


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.

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – May 16, 2014 Edition


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 Canadian Street Style Lookbook – May 2, 2014 Edition

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?

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – April 25, 2014 Edition


Jenny Jovanovic of Crazy Style Love, Toronto

This week, Canadian style bloggers from coast to coast made one thing clear: pants are for suckers. Cute skirts, chic dresses and bare legs are the formula for spring dressing – they’re all abiding by it and looking downright fresh too.

From Jenny‘s girly fuchsia birdcage skirt and polka dot top pairing to Alanna‘s whimsical bird print frock getup, we’re feeling inspired to finally put those black tights in storage and show some leg. Now if only the gams weren’t so grey from a long winter away from the sun…

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 – 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.
