The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – April 11, 2014 Edition


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 – April 4, 2014 Edition


Kassandra Camponi of Kastles, Edmonton

If you get a feeling of déjà vu with this week’s edition of The Canadian Street Style Lookbook, you’re bang on. A few standout pieces that have made appearances recently are featured again, styled in a fresh new way.

Case #1: Joe Fresh‘s trompe l’oeil shirt. We first spotted it on Barbara, who knocked it out of the park with a head-to-toe black and white ensemble. This week, Lookbook newcomer Vickie paired the same shirt with a bright red perforated leather jacket for the perfect pop of colour. One shirt, worn two fantastic ways.

Case #2: Ann Taylor‘s TDF cage pencil skirt. It first showed up in the Lookbook on Christina, who got us lusting after the skirt when she expertly paired it with a black moto jacket and baby pink pumps. This week, Nelia made us want it even more with an equally fierce black, white and red getup, one of our favourite colour combos ever. Again, one skirt, worn two uber-cool ways.

Déjà vu? Why not when it looks this good.

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – March 7, 2014 Edition


Alanna Durkovich of Xander Vintage, Vancouver

The fashion month tour continued on Canadian style blogs this week. Sonya took a stroll on the streets of London in a to-die-for floral print bomber, while Vanessa went for a bike ride in Paris in an impossibly cool forest green faux fur jacket and pinstripe suit combo.

The action here at home was no less sartorially inspiring. Lookbook newcomer Gloria (it’s about time, right? our bad.) didn’t let the Polar Vortex hold her down, looking chic in a textbook fur and leather ensemble. Alanna, fast becoming a Lookbook regular, sported a brightly printed jumpsuit that was a welcome pop of colour, reminding us that spring fashion is just around the corner. Or so we hope.

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – February 28, 2014 Edition


Alex of Alex’s Closet, Montreal

The skirt is making a comeback, and it – in all its different forms – made an appearance on Canadian style blogs across the country this week.

Nelia went ladylike with her snake-print midi skirt and polka dot top, Lookbook newcomer Alex looked ultra-cool in a plaid pencil skirt and moto jacket combo, and Jen combined the best of both worlds with a floral-print A-line skirt and biker jacket of her own.

Have you been braving the polar vortex in your favourite skirt too?

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – February 21, 2014 Edition


Lily Nguyen of Bleed For Fashion, Vancouver

This week’s edition of The Canadian Street Style Lookbook is an eclectic mix of looks – there’s some feminine Valentine’s Day ensembles, fierce New York Fashion Week getups and some darned good “I’m freezing but I’m going to werk it anyway” outfits.

Lily donned a stunning red-on-red-on-red look for V-day with an unexpected pairing of a Kenzo tiger sweatshirt with a tulle skirt and glittery peep-toe pumps; the Beckerman sisters killed it as per usual with their unconventional yet incredibly endearing styling and toothy grins at NYFW; and Alanna looked impossibly cool in a vintage sweater and leather dress combo as she road-tripped in Oregon.

Sonya Esman of Class Is Internal, Toronto

New York Fashion Week has been in full swing this week, and our favourite Canadian style bloggers have been serving up a constant stream of ultra-chic outfit snaps straight from the streets of Manhattan.

From Sonya‘s to-die-for fur-on-fur look to Vanessa‘s uber-cool biker jacket + skort combo to the Beckerman sisters’ super sporty ode to DKNY, Lookbook regulars definitely brought their sartorial A games to the Big Apple.

P.S. Happy Valentine’s Day! <3

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – February 7, 2014 Edition


Vanessa Hong of The Haute Pursuit, Vancouver/Beijing

This week, Canadian style bloggers across the country had a serious case of the blues. We’re hypothesizing that displeasure with the frigid temperatures and abundance of snow finally manifested itself in, literally, some very blue outfits. Wearing their feelings? We totally get it.

Vanessa H. rocked a beautiful baby blue coat we’re obsessing over, Vanessa C. paired an uber-chic navy coat with leather jogging pants, and Samantha donned a monochromatic getup from hat to leopard print scarf to psychedelic taffeta pants.

You know who wasn’t feeling blue though? Ania, who was sporting a pretty little printed romper while in Los Cabos, Mexico. And now we’re seeing green.

The love affair between Canadian style bloggers and faux fur continues. Last week, it was Stephanie in stripes. This week, we’ve got Vanessa and Liz, one in the most perfect shade of green and the other in a winter white shearling. Both looking incredibly chic (and warm!). We’re officially obsessed.

You too? Get the look with these 15 fabulous faux fur jackets we found just for you.

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – January 3, 2014 Edition


Vanessa Hong of The Haute Pursuit, Vancouver/Beijing

The first edition of The Canadian Street Style Lookbook of 2014 kicks the year off with a very fashionable bang. With uncomfortably frigid temperatures to battle outdoors, it’s not surprising that the story this week is all about coats.

Vanessa paired a dapper, menswear-inspired pinstripe coat with white lace-up leather pants, Liz sported a cozy fur chubby with a pop of tartan, and Christina wore a very ladylike white wool coat with black lace overlay. It may be bitterly cold outside, but that’s not going to stop our favourite Canadian bloggers from looking ultra-chic anyway.
