I recently happened across a declaration that black and white was going to be a huge trend for spring, and it appears that our favourite Canadian style bloggers all received that memo and decided to get on that trend, stat.
What’s black, white and striped all over? Samantha, obviously. The Beckerman sister’s cotton candy-hued hair added a pop of colour to her jailhouse chic getup this week. Jen‘s black-and-white ensemble combined many of our favourite things: prints, leather and fur, the ingredients to the perfect cold weather outfit.
Stephanie‘s take on the trend was more white with a dash of black; her no-fail white blazer + white pants + striped top combo is a promising sign that spring is just around the corner. I hope.

This week’s edition of The Canadian Street Style Lookbook finds ladies dressed impeccably and suitably for a spectrum of intriguing scenarios.
It seems that Marta fittingly put together her outfit as if it were a deconstructed painting for her visit to the AGO exhibition Picasso: Masterpieces from the Musée National Picasso, Paris. Her white top and pants are a blank canvas that she’s transformed into a masterpiece with fun prints and punches of bold colour. Am I reading too much into Marta’s ensemble? Or is she the Picasso of Canadian street style?
Standing in front of what appears to be prison doors, Vanessa imparts a don’t-mess-with-me attitude in a white varsity jacket, sports bra, and black leather shorts with mesh trim. This is by far the best interpretation of the black-and-white bee-striped prison uniform I’ve seen to date.
The crystal ball in the background of Mina’s photo makes it painfully obvious that Professor Trelawny, professor of Divination at Hogwarts, was the source of inspiration for Mina’s look. Mina certainly looks magical with her perfectly-tied headband (executed with a spell, I assume), magnificent Prada sunglasses, and orange and gold statement earrings.
