My Favourite Closet Staple

Hi Everyone!

according to the calendar it is finally spring, and while in reality the cold weather has decided to stick around a little longer (as I write this, it is currently pouring ice rain and snow is expected shortly) I am ready to start shedding a few layers of clothing.  Closet staples are a personal thing that depend on your lifestyle and fashion needs but there are a few key items that work in most people’s wardrobe – a white t-shirt and a well fitting pair of jeans are  perfect examples of this.  Then there is my favourite closet staple – a white dress shirt.  This key item has the ability to elevate any look that you may be rocking, be it classic, sexy, conservative or modern to name a few.  I prefer my dress shirts to be loose fitting so that I can easily half tuck it into jeans or dress pants.  Here are a few of my favourite looks featuring the white dress shirt:

Street Style Favourites From Copenhagen Fashion Week A/W 18

This past week was Copenhagen Fashion Week for A/W 2018 and not surprisingly all of my favourite Scandinavian fashion girls came out in true form.  There was a lot of plaid, wide leg pants and bright colours effortlessly tempered with florals, denim, fur and leather for looks as swoon worthy as Copenhagen itself.  Here are a few of my favourite street style looks from Copenhagen this past week:

Trendspotting – Fall Florals

Floral patterned clothing is normally reserved for spring.  They add a freshness and a softness to the wearer’s outfit marking the change of seasons after a cold hard winter.  My personal style tends to be a little bit more simple and edgy so florals rarely make an appearance in my wardrobe – the one exception is if I find a darker floral pattern that I can integrate into my wardrobe.  Thankfully this fall darker florals are trending in a big way.  From jackets and dresses to blouses and bombers, fall florals are everywhere this season.  The darker, more muted colours blend seamlessly with other fall trends such as red clothing and accessories , velvet and gorgeous suiting 

Fall florals can work for most people’s styles – the key is to pair it with things that you already own and love.  I love to toughen up the look by pairing it with darker denim, leather jackets or leggings and booties.  Here are some of my favourite fall floral looks this season.

Trendspotting – Red Hot

I love how wearing a specific colour can influence your mood.  White is innocent and fresh, black is sophisticated and unfussy and red……well red screams power and confidence – red gets you noticed.  While I am generally a fairly shy person who is really not comfortable with a lot of attention, wearing red makes me feel strong, confident and in control.  Wearing red helps me to tap into my superpowers and in many ways is my not so secret weapon.  I was thrilled when I saw a ton of red gracing the Fall 2017 runways – Fendi, Jil Sanders and Victoria Beckham all showed gorgeous looks.  The street style take on this bold trend is just as fabulous – full red suits and bold accessories are definitely a trend that I can get behind.  Here are some of my favourite looks featuring this trend both on and off the runway:

Street Style Favourites from Copenhagen Fashion Week S/S 18

Copenhagen held it’s bi-annual fashion week a few weeks ago to showcase designs for the Spring Summer 2018 collections.  As expected the local fashion elite was out in full force. While it would be easy to group the fashion from Scandinavian countries into one group, the truth is that each country has it’s own unique style.  Copenhagen’s style stars used the spotlight to show case their styling prowess by mixing bold patterns, bright colours and hi/low fashion with a quiet confidence that most people can only dream of pulling off.  Many elevated the cool girl factor by arriving in style on bicycles  – not something you would normally see from street style stars.  Here are some of my favourite looks from Copenhagen’s Fashion Week S/S 2018:
