If you read my blog regularly you’ve definitely picked up on my slight obsession for everything black & leather, especially when it comes to jackets. – In a perfect world this look would be my uniform with the occasional pop of colour on my feet every now and then. Last week I got the chance to pop into my friend Ken’s studio to check out some of his fall/winter collection. As soon as I saw this jacket I knew I had to have it. What I love about Ken’s work is the amount of attention he pays to details and the quality of his pieces which is clearly displayed in all his outerwear. This look is dedicated to those winter days that you’re running around the city trying your best to stay warm & stylish at the same time. What I’m Wearing

As 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.

Fall is such an amazing season to experience the best of Toronto – all of the indulgent & cozy classics that bring out the Canadian in all of us. This is true for fashion as much as anything else! The unpredictability of the weather makes layering a must – especially if you’re trying to carry an outfit from day to night. With this look I layered a basic grey scoop neck t-shirt with one of my favourite cool-weather pieces, a leather vest by Canadian designer Ken Chow. Tied around my waist is my ‘boyfriend’ shirt, a well-loved plaid number from Club Monaco, rocked with my favourite All Saints denim, a feathered fedora & a pair of shades courtesy of Dolce & Gabbana.
The luxe feel of leather is as exciting as it is timeless: a great leather vest is the perfect piece to add to your wardrobe this fall and have in rotation season after season. Personally, I love the added edge it gives my outfits – it’s such an added confidence boost. Let’s just say that it brings out the bad boy in me so to speak…
