Winter brings along many year-end and New Year’s celebrations with it, and this means we’re on a constant search for unique outfits for various occasions. Thankfully, our Cosmopolitan collection was made with this in mind -- adapted to Canada’s brutal temperatures, and the sweet festivities on your agenda that requires your clothes to be versatile. Continue reading to discover our styling tips on how to mix our new arrivals so they can take you from your office to dinners and even New Year plans!
Desk to drinks
Winter dressing isn’t quite easy as days get shorter and we try to keep warm above anything else. What’s more, choosing your outfit is even harder when your day consists of work then off duty plans.
So here’s what we suggest: for the office, put on a beautiful patterned blouse like this floral one that will make your outfit with simple, polished straight leg pants. They will go well with either your booties or flats, and your favourite wool-blend coat of the season.
Then for your evening plans, simply complement your outfit with chic accessories that will give your outfit an instant boost. Think faux-fur scarves, statement earrings or a long necklace that will add a brilliant and festive touch. Now you’re ready for a fun soirée!
Warmth, meet style
As everything starts to freeze over, we love slipping into soft, cozy knits. And for that, we’ve got a variety of options including long chenille sweaters, turtlenecks and last but not least, off-the-shoulder.
Off-the-shoulder sweaters are unique and practical because while it packs in the warmth of a sweater, it follows one of the most coveted current trends, and is wearable with almost any bottoms such as pants, jeans or a skirt. Depending on your occasion and mood, mix and match for a different atmosphere each time.
For example, for a classic look appropriate for a sit-down dinner, our faux-leather pencil skirt will help you look stylish and feminine. Since your shoulders will be exposed, we recommend adding a pair of earrings, which will emphasize the femininity of your neckline even more. Got a business meeting? Pair it with a crisp white shirt under the sweater for a professional outfit. Lastly, for a laid-back look on the weekend, simply switch for a pair of jeans and sneakers.
Back to basics
No wardrobe is complete without its timeless basics that help us out during busy mornings or minimalist days. Need to stock up? Our Cosmopolitan collection offers solid knits, plain tops and pants, as well as wrap sweaters that can help you.
A quick and easy outfit you can assemble from the collection is our straight leg pant and blouse paired with a warm cardigan. Throw on our down jacket along with winter accessories like a beanie and gloves, and you’re ready to step out for work even on the coldest days. Keep the same outfit and add a little glam with a long necklace and a faux-fur scarf to give this look an instant upgrade.
Alternatively, create a more modern long-over-lean silhouette in our sweater dress, featuring faux-leather pockets -- an effortlessly chic item thanks to its sophisticated details and feminine cut! From work, brunch to friendly gatherings, this silhouette can serve you on many different occasions.
