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!

Toronto Fashion Week With Rudsak

Christian Confidential | Christian ThompsonLast week was a special one for those in Toronto that work in fashion. Toronto Fashion Week is one of my favourite times of the year in the city, there’s of course the fashion, the events, the networking and most of all the energy! This season I teamed up with canadian brand Rudsak as a social media correspondent to give you guys behind the scene access and exclusive moments via social media. I’ve been a fan of the brand for quite some time now and they’ve really made a name for themselves by consistently providing quality and innovation season after season. The show was great and although I’m amped for Spring + Summer, the runway collection got me excited about shopping for fall coats and leather accessories. Before heading to the show, I got the chance to put a look together featuring this dope lightweight nylon jacket from the brand, called Lamero. I kept the colour palette light to compliment the jacket and wore a pair of burgundy kicks to give the outfit that little extra something! It’s cool, it’s casual, and fun! Continue Reading…

Picking the Perfect Outerwear | Style Post

CCxRWCOIf you’ve been following my blog for a while you’ve probably noticed my slight obsession with outerwear. It’s almost as big as my love for sneakers… almost! Picking the right outerwear is really important because ultimately it’s a statement piece that you’ll continuously wear. Think about it, every season you rotate between 2-3 jackets that you wear everywhere. Meaning they’ve got to be versatile, stylish and protect you from the elements. I picked up this peacoat from RW&CO that I think checks off all three boxes. It’ll look good dressed up with some dress pants and a cashmere sweater or dressed down with a pair of dark denim and some casual kicks (like I tend to go for). I could’ve gone for a camel, navy or black jacket but instead I opted for military green, which is very in this season and will help set you apart from others. Lastly, fall weather is super unpredictable and I despise being cold, so make sure to check if you’re jacket has a good lining to help protect you from those low temperature days.

Staying Dry & Fashionable with Canada Goose | Style Post

Canada Goose | Christian ConfidentialHi guys, I hope that you all had a great long weekend, I’m back on the blog today with a new style post featuring Canada Goose. As I mentioned in a previous post, I’ve teamed up with the brand to showcase how you can stay stylish yet warm/dry against the elements with their SS15 collection. I have the worst luck when it comes to being caught in the rain. Yesterday, it rained for approximately 20 minutes downtown and without a doubt I happened to be outside during that period. The Jacksons jacket from Canada Goose’s Branta collection will not only keep you dry and warm during those bad weather days, but is also super light and compact. Being a lifestyle blogger, I’m always out exploring the city for cool places to shoot and some days the forecast calls for rain and the fact that this jacket is light and compact makes it super easy to pack into my knapsack and pull it out when I need it. It might sound like a small feature to highlight but for me that’s exactly why this jacket works for my lifestyle. Check out the rest of Canada Goose’s  SS15 collection here and let me know which ones you’re into. #AskAnyoneWhoKnows
