Hi guys, I hope that this week has been treating you well so far! This week has been pretty crazy for me and it’s only Wednesday (eeek!), that being said I’m back on the blog today to share my latest style collaboration with Uniqlo Canada.
You guys know that my style is heavily influenced by my mood and being that I’m a gemini, it changes almost every hour (I wish I was joking lol), kind of like my daily schedule. Some days are spent locked away at home editing photos and creating pitches, while others are full with photo shoots, meetings and events. On my busy social days it’s important for me to pick out clothes that are versatile and can be worn in multiple settings. This look that I put together with Uniqlo is the perfect example of one of those days!
A white short sleeve tee tucked into a pair of relaxed fit navy ankle pants, some white low-top sneakers, glasses and a light weight oversized coat (it’s spring so the weather is moodier than I am), does more than the trick for me!
The key piece in a day-to-night outfit is essentially, the pants. I tend to go for a darker colour way as it’s always viewed as more sleek and in my opinion more versatile for different settings. These ankle pants have a relaxed fit and a belt-like elastic waist that makes them much more comfortable than your standard chino or dress pants. If you see me on the streets, 8 out of 10 times, i’ll have a bag/backpack with me. It usually has my laptop, a camera, some cologne and a spare piece of clothing or two.
Which leads me right into my night look. I changed the colour of my day shirt and shoes to black. Like I mentioned earlier about a darker colour way for the pants being viewed as more sleek, the same rule goes for your tops and footwear. Even though, I am still wearing sneakers (very rarely will you catch me in dress shoes), I feel much more comfortable and confident in my look to potentially attend an evening media preview, a restaurant opening or even a date over cocktails (very rare scenario). Either way, when it comes to having to dress for different events and lugging around a suitcase with multiple outfits isn’t an options, always remember to 1. keep it simple 2. make sure that you’re comfortable 3. choose the base of your outfit wisely!
