Skipping is a very effective pre-workout warm up & a great heart rate elevator all around.  I’ve heard that skipping for ten minutes has the same impact as running an eight minute mile, which makes it a high-burn exercise that has the added benefit of training your basic agility & body coordination, something that a lot of us could work on after spending a winter indoors.  It’s also something that you can do anywhere & without a lot of equipment, making it great for athletes at all levels of sport.

Today’s look is all about keeping it clean & simple.  I feel like you can never go wrong with a denim shirt and I love these joggers – the standard khaki is brought a little fashion forward with the addition of an elastic cuff.  With some leg to show it was easy to choose a pair of white Chuck’s – bright & white they kept everything right.  This is a great look for a relaxed setting – brunch, a movie date or even a house party.

Chucks & Sweaters | Christian ConfidentialThe weather outside may be frightful but I couldn’t resist putting these grey drop-crotch trousers to good use.  I was craving the comfort of a beautifully knit sweater – paired with my favourite leather-collared denim shirt, this outfit had me feeling crisp & composed.  I threw on some classic white Chuck Taylor’s and went location scouting for the perfect space to shoot this look.  The timeless scholastic feel of this music room tucked away at the University of Toronto definitely brought this look to life!

For all the downsides of winter in Toronto there are also some serious pleasures that come with all of the snow – curling up fireside in a great sweater with a cup of hot chocolate is not a bad way to wait out even the worst weather.  I think that heavy knit sweaters will always be in style in Canada simply because our climate demands them – I tend to stock up as much as I can in November and then just live in them until Spring arrives, not the most creative I’ll admit but completely acceptable during the deep-freezes we’ve been going through.  This cream coloured sweater from H&M is both stylish & reasonably priced, proof that these essentials can keep you warm without burning holes in your pockets.  Definitely win-win.

The Over Coat | Street Style

 

Christian Thompson | Christian ConfidentialAs hard as I try to keep my looks fresh & on point, I have to say that the weather outside these days is definitely uninspiring.  When I’m in the mood for something easy but elevated, it can be as easy as shedding that (ubiquitous) bomber jacket & grabbing a stylish overcoat.  Paired with a simple and refined all-black get-up, this two-toned coat by Toronto’s Krane Design keeps you warm & helps you stand out in a flock of Canadian Geese.

Christian Thompson | Christian ConfidentialAs Toronto bundles up for a season of crisp winter weather, one thing I’ve noticed is the growing popularity of stylish varsity jackets.  This particular jacket from Canada’s Krane Design continues their tradition of high-quality construction and luxe-finishes, giving nuance and restraint to an otherwise high-spirited item.  While the varsity look will always be classically cool, buying a little up-market will ensure that your investment matures alongside the rest of your wardrobe and will keep you from looking a little too-juvenile at that next event.
