Wearing White + Styling for Summer

White Out Collage

For those of you staunch “no white after Labour Day” rule followers, your days of wearing white are numbered for the year. Whether or not you abide by this rule, there’s limited opportunity to take advantage of the time when wearing white is completely acceptable. When done right, the white-on-white style elevates even the most basic of clothes and gives you an element of effortless chic to your personal style.

Don’t be fooled by the lovely exterior, this tank will keep you dry and gives you just enough stretch to move with you.

The shOws hit Toronto last week premiering the Spring/Summer 2014 collections of four prominent Canadian designers. The shOws are Toronto’s pre-fashion week, if you will, a showcase of some of Canada’s best emerging, and established, fashion talent.

The shOws are held in the loft of the Andrew Richard Designs building and hosts crowds much smaller than fashion week. Twice a year, four designers are selected to present their collections and this year’s designers were: Bellavance, Calla Haynes, Steven Tai, and Jeremy Laing. (more…)
