Canadian style bloggers were out and about and looking fabulous this week.

Hawley and Sonya travelled south of the border, the former perfecting her festival look for Pitchfork in Chicago with a print-on-print ensemble that impressed the likes of Teen Vogue, and the latter taking to the streets of New York in a lovely tiered cami dress and TDF Chanel Boy bag.

Here at home, Alanna went for a stroll in the countryside in a minty fresh crochet lace matched set, and Jen prepped for a day at the races at the upcoming Deighton Cup with an ultra-chic jumpsuit and pearl-embellished fascinator.

Ain’t summer grand?

Assa Cisse of My Curves & Curls, Toronto

What better time to have some fun with fashion than when you’re not cocooned in a heavy parka? This week, Canadian style bloggers took advantage of the balmy weather to add some flare to their outfits.

Alanna sported a sherbet-hued matched set (with co-ordinated shoes to boot!), Assa rocked the oversized ruffle with an off-shoulder look, and Ania donned some snake print and the requisite cowgirl hat for Calgary Stampede festivities.

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – July 4, 2014 Edition


Sonya Esman of Class Is Internal, Toronto

This week, we’re all obsessed with head-to-toe white looks, thanks to Sonya here in Toronto and Claire over in Vancouver.

Sonya sported a lovely crochet lace frock that had us instantly clicking to snag our very own, while Claire’s effortlessly chic white separates and matching shoes had a similar effect on us (i.e. wear to buy a pair of white sandals, stat?).

Are you rocking the summer whites too, or are you weary of spilling your ice cream on your bright white duds?

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – June 13, 2014 Edition


Jill Lanksy of The August Diaries, Vancouver

This week in Canadian street style, it was all about statement dressing – no wallflowers here.

Jill paired a hard-to-miss bright yellow frock with a fierce pair of lace-up heels for a party-perfect look, Sonya brought the drama in a royal purple floral print dress and seasonless ankle booties, and Sasha knocked it out of the ballpark with a jaw-droppingly hot skirt suit that was anything but corporate and boring.

Ania Boniecka of Ania.B, Calgary

Just when we were ready to declare that spring has really, truly, finally arrived and it’s safe to store the boots and parkas away, Ania in Calgary posts personal style snaps with falling snow as her backdrop. Definitely makes for some stunning photos.

Truthfully, though, we prefer to admire the snow from afar. And from the looks of the sunshine-filled shots from Nelia in Toronto, Mo in Halifax, and Laura in Ottawa this week, so do they. Enjoy the spring weather this weekend!

The Canadian Street Style Lookbook – May 2, 2014 Edition


Stephanie Sterjovski of Stephanie Sterjovski, Toronto

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 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?
