Toronto Men's Fashion Week: Day 1
I thought I would give you a look into my first outfit at fashion week. The fast-paced, glamorous event was a whirlwind, especially for a rookie like myself.
I wore a matching skirt and top with a loud geometric pattern on it. The specific reason I decided to do this was because someone had told me a few days earlier that “big girls shouldn’t wear busy patterns.”
I disagreed, and here is how I proved it.
The top and skirt are by Jules and Leopold, and I had found them at Winners. I thought the pattern was fun, and loved the colour combination of the print.
The Blazer is from RW&Co, and I decided to drape it over my shoulders to add a little bit of sass. I also noticed that the "jacket draped over the shoulder" look was a big trend during fashion week.
A similar style is available at Addition Elle.
The shoes I bought are by Chinese Laundry, and they have a fun peep toe that shows off my pedicure. They were springily comfortable, and I wore them all night without getting sore feet. (Signs of a well designed shoe)
There are many similar styles available at DSW Canada, here is another style I could have paired with this outfit.
I bought this cute clutch from DSW, and thought it would add a little bit of fun to the otherwise dressy outfit. (It also connected my red lip look to this outfit)
