Lace-Effect

@christianconfidential So, I really made the most of my time while in New York and even got a chance to shoot some street style content for the blog. This is a look that I put together, incorporating a trend that came up a lot during Men’s Week (New York, London, Milan & Paris) – lace shirts and blazers. The moment that I saw ASAP Rocky sporting this trend, I was on the hunt for the perfect rendition to style my own way. I decided to dress up the trend this time with some wide-leg trousers, statement sunglasses and my signature harness boots.

I’m really happy with the way this look turned out, it’s definitely not going to be for everyone but for the fashion forward thinking guy, I’d suggest giving it a shot!

Make It Summer But In Black

@christianconfidential

Hey guys,  guess who’s back with another look! Honestly it feels good to be shooting content again, especially with this amazing weather we’ve been having this week in London! My friend Natasha and I went out for afternoon drinks on a cute terrace in South Kensington, called April’s Cafe, and this was the look I opted for. I wanted something that embraced summer but was still super chic. I went for an all-black look (screams summer, I know) but switched it up by wearing a shirt with a floral/plant print. To me, this was a great way to add a little more fun to my look, rather than playing it safe with a plain black tee or shirt.

I love the way this outfit came together, it’s easy, it’s classy and just totally my vibe at the moment. Check out  a few more pics below!

Just a Pop of Red

@christianconfidential

Two posts in one week, what has gotten into me (haha)??!? Let’s just keep this momentum going as long as we can. It’s crazy what a change of scenery and good weather can do for your soul. I shot this look last week in an area in London called, Belgravia. It’s quiet, it’s beautiful and totally worked with the aesthetic of this outfit. I opted to do an all-black look with just a pop of colour with my Balenciaga trainers.

I’ve had this jacket from the Eytys x HM collaboration for a little while and wanted to wait for the perfect opportunity to style it. I love the shiny finishing of the jacket and how easily it holds its own in this look. You all know, I love me a good pair of wide leg trousers, and these ones from COS just do it ALL for me! This is a look that you could catch me wearing out and about to meetings in central,  press previews or going out for drinks with a group of friends. Scroll down to see a few more pics in this look.

Winter Street Style

@christianconfidential It’s been a while since I’ve last given you guys a new street style post but today I am back  on the blog with one that’s practical, stylish, and gives back to a good cause all at the same time! If you’ve ever spent any time in Canada during winter, you know how cold our winters can get and honestly I don’t know how I would make it through them without my friends over at Canada Goose. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ve definitely seen the brand pop up in my content throughout the years. Whether the brand’s hosting a store opening party, a press preview or simply just interacting with their products on a continuous basis – I’m always blown away by the quality and effort that they put in to everything they do.

That being said, the newest CG addition to my collection might be a little more special (in my opinion) due to it’s involvement with a great cause. The PBI Expedition Parka (that I’m currently living in), is one of 14 items apart of a collaboration that Canada Goose and Polar Bears International (a non profit organization) have created to help support the conservation of Polar Bear habitats through research and education.

Now let’s get into this street style look – personally I’m in love with it! It’s simple, it’s chic and it’s super functional. I went up a size in the PBI Expedition Parka to give it more of an oversized look. I then paired it with a navy blue mock neck, some relaxed fit pants and my favourite pair of Wyatt Harness boots. This is an outfit that you could catch me in heading to meetings, media previews and definitely on February 27th, 2019 for Polar Bear Day!

For additional ways that you can get involved in Polar Bear Day please visit PBI’s official website here!

Holiday Party Vibes


@christianconfidentialCan you believe that we’re so close to the end of the year? Honestly, I’m so ready for 2018 to be over, and to welcome a new year…sigh this year has been a lot! I’ll get into all of that in another post but for now let’s discuss this holiday party look, that I put together! The thing that I love about the holiday season and putting outfits together is that you can be as loud and as extra as you’d like. I don’t know if it’s because everyone is in a joyful mood but whatever the reason is – I’m all for it!

By now, I’m sure that you guys know that I love me a good floral print shirt, and I couldn’t resist this one. I decided to pair it with some of velvet pants that have a shiny tint to them and continued playing with textures by completing the look with suede Chelsea boots. I love this look, it’s festive, it’s sexy, it’s the perfect outfit for a chic holiday party without doing the most – in my opinion!

Outerwear Finds at Saks OFF 5TH

@christianconfidential

As the temperature begins to drop in the city, I’m starting to have to find creative ways to not only look stylish but to stay warm at the same time. Luckily for me, I’m a huge fan of layering, warm  fall staples and winter accessories. Recently, I put together this street style inspired look with the help of my friends over at Saks OFF 5TH that I think that you guys are really going to love!

When it comes to putting an outfit together, 9 out of 10 times I look for a statement piece that I want to build my look around. After discovering this mixed material jacket by Dsquared2 (at Saks OFF 5TH), I knew right away that it was going to be my focal point for the look. Since the jacket played with different materials and colour combinations, I wanted to find classic pieces that would compliment and elevate the overall vibe that I was going for. I opted for black dressy joggers, paired with  some sleek hi-top sneakers and a cashmere turtleneck ( aka one of my favourite f/w essentials).

This look really ticks off all of the boxes for me when it comes to my current style aesthetic. It’s edgy, it’s sharp, it’s athletic and keeps me warm! If you’re in the market for new outerwear and winter accessories my friends over at Saks OFF 5TH are having an outwear sale from November 7th to the 19th in store, where you can get 30% OFF! Whether you’re looking for a classic overcoat, an everyday jacket or something a little more edgy, like the one I got – they’ve definitely got you covered!

H&M Studio FW18 Collection

@christianconfidential Hi babes – So the first full week of September is coming to an end and it’s still really hot in Toronto but I shot some new content for the #HMStudio FW18 collection, that I wanted to share with you guys on the blog! I got to select a few pieces from the collection last week and trust me when I say it was a hard to not request everything! For this coming fall, I feel like a lot of menswear brands are embracing a collegiate trend and H&M has definitely illustrated that through their campaign!

I wanted to stay as true to their vibe but add a little more edge to it with the use of my own accessories (boots and hat). I really like the way both of these looks came together and I hope that you guys do too! I’ve been thinking a lot about visiting London (random, I know), which is what I think  inspired me to shoot the second look.

I’ll be travelling a few times throughout this month so you can expect some travel diaries coming your way!

Talk soon,

Christian

The Rest of Summer in H&M

@christianconfidential@christianconfidential

They say that time flies when you’re having fun and this summer has definitely proven that. Whether it was spending time on the beach in Miami, spending a week in Paris, having brunch with friends in Toronto or jetting off to Osheaga in Montreal with H&M this past weekend -it’s been a summer for the books and it’s not even over yet!

I told myself this season I was going to experiment more with my style and embrace a few new trends. When it comes to dressing, I tend to lean more on the street/athleisure style for my day-to-day but I do love dressing up for events and special occasions.

In regards to trends this season, there were a few that really resonated with me; 1. dad sneakers ( I love a chunky sneaker so I wasn’t surprised that I fell for this one), 2. wide leg trousers (ever since my trip to New Orleans, I’ve had a special place in my heart for them so I was excited to see them in stores for SS18) and 3. prints and patterned shirts (this has got to be the trend that I’ve embraced the most).

I don’t know what it is about prints and patterns for me this summer, but they work with everything! You can dress them up, dress them down, tuck them in, wear them out, they can be fitted, they can be loose, you can litterally make them your own!

For some of you guys, you might think it’s too much or feel that it makes you stand out a lot so I wanted to take the time to show you different ways that you can style them and feel comfortable with your look.

I took three different styles of prints/patterned shirts from H&M and styled them three ways! Trust me when I tell you, I had a lot of fun putting these outfits together and have worn each of them out and the feedback was great!

I’ve broken down each look below and shared the occasions that I wore each outfit and I want to challenge you guys to do something! We’ve got one month and a bit left of summer – let’s make the most of it style wise. Try something different with your look, don’t be afraid of colours, or patterns and put yourself out there a little – because I know I will!

@christianconfidentialThis outfit is a more elevated way to wear a printed shirt. Instead of a regular Oxford shirt I opted for one with stripes and tucked it in to a pair of white skinny denim. This is an outfit that I wore to a friends celebration brunch but I would also wear it out to watch a tennis match or even a business lunch. It’s clean, it’s stylish and it shows your guests that you know a thing or two about fashion.

This outfit is a more fun take on wearing prints/patterns. This is for those hot summer days or nights that you’re attending a festival, a concert or an outside gathering! It’s the perfect alternative to a tank or a sleeveless top. It’s a light material so it’s breathable, you can leave it buttoned up or unbuttoned and it looks like you’ve put more thought into your overall look!

@christianconfidentialThis outfit is my look for a nice evening out in the summer! The floral prints make for a great conversation piece and tucking it in to a pair of fitted black denim, elevates the entire look. I would wear this look  to a nice dinner on a rooftop patio or to a nice bar for drinks with friends or even on a date. To me, this outfit is letting people know that you’re confident and that you’re in total control of your personal style.

Blame It On The Timezone

@christianconfidential

Hi guys, I’m back again this week with a new summer street style post. I’ve been realizing more and more that my summer style definitely takes a lot of its inspiration from the west coast. I’m in love with loose fits, flannel shirts, and tanks, which tends to always remind me of the style out in Cali. I love this look, it’s easy, it’s comfortable and different all at the same time. The standout piece in this outfit is obviously…. the sneakers! They’re the latest offering from the Levi’s x Air Jordan 4 collaboration and I must say that they’ve been in heavy rotation from the moment that I got them! The cool thing about these kicks, is the denim texture, the colour way and the classic Jordan silhouette. I wore this look out for lunch and drinks with a few friends over the weekend – I hope you guys like it!
