This season a few of the trends we LOVE…
90s: Sportswear & Leather
In the past few years we have seen a major revival of 90s fashion, and this season is no exception. This winter, two trends that are making a major comeback are the track suit and the long leather jacket. We are more than happy to see the tracksuit make its comeback as it is the ultimate weekend wear; both comfortable and functional. Are you ready to take the plunge with this trend? The brighter the better. Pair it with the always loved white sneaker and find a tracksuit from classic brands like Nike or Adidas.
Much like the tracksuit, the trench length leather jacket first had its time in the spotlight in the 90s and was popularized by the Matrix franchise. But it seems this trend is back. This winter when choosing a leather jacket, the longer and the more oversized the better. Plus the long leather jacket is a great alternative to the pea coat when you’re looking to switch up your weekday outerwear.
The puffer jacket has been a must have for women this season and it turns out men are loving it just the same. The best part about the puffer jacket? It is able to keep you warm throughout our cold winters. Our favourite way to style the puffer is with a sweater and a pair of jeans for the perfect casual outfit. Since the oversized look of the puffer jacket is already an attention grabber, we suggest finding one in a neutral colour such as black or grey.
Designers Take on the Woods
The hiking boot isn’t just for hiking anymore. When looking at street style this winter it seems the hiking boot is the footwear of choice. And we can see why; it is both a stylish and functional option for the always changing weather here in Calgary. If you’re on the hunt for a new pair of hiking boots you have a ton of option – you could opt for a classic pair of Timberlands or go more high end with Louis Vuitton or Gucci where you can find hiking boots in their 2019 winter collections. We suggest pairing your hiking boots with a neutral sweater and a pair of green khakis or your favourite denim for a great winter look.
Brown is the New Black
Every season there is one dominant colour that gets to have its moment in women’s fashion (mustard this year) and for men, brown seems to be climbing the charts. Whether it be a sweater, a wool jacket or even a suit, brown pieces should be incorporated into your winter wardrobe this season. We have seen all tones of brown featured by designers, but our favourite is the dark browns, especially if you opt for head to toe brown with a suit. If you only choose one brown piece this winter, we suggest a brown wool coat that can be worn into the office giving you a professional yet stylish look.
