4 Essential Pieces To Update Your Wardrobe For 2013

Fashion is so fast moving that it can be easy to fall behind. Unless you’re a shopaholic, keeping up with new trends is difficult, even for the most fashion-conscious among us. Pick up these four essentials that can breathe new life into the clothes you already have and you’ll be on trend in no time.

Colored tights
Stocking up on colored tights at the start of each season is a must. Colorful or patterned tights add an element of fun to any outfit, and can even be teamed with summer shorts for a trendy look during colder months. It’s best to go for relatively versatile shades, like purple and blue, which can be teamed with loads of other colours.

Skinny jeans
If you can find a high-waisted pair that fits you properly, skinny jeans can be very flattering indeed, even for curvier figures. By complementing your curves, they give off a feminine air that you just don’t get with a pair of regular cut jeans. The trick is to buy a size up from what you think you need. You can find a great range of skinny jeans at Very.co.uk.

Every girl should have a scarf drawer. We’re not talking about heavy knitted winter ones, but light patterned scarves that can add a touch of flair to more casual outfits. Most clothes shops have a range in their accessories section, so pick up a few the next time you hit the high street. A well-chosen scarf can change your look quickly, easily and cheaply.

Day dresses
Wearing a dress takes most of the stress out of planning an outfit, because it’s all done in one go. Keep a few casual dresses on hand for dates, special lunches, and dress down day at work. You can wear them in the winter with thick tights underneath and a stylish jacket on top, and when summer comes you’ll already have part of your wardrobe sorted! Here are some of our favorite oh-so-affordable looks!

IFB Project #86: Hair Inspiration for Fekkai

messy waves

Independant Fashion Bloggers is holding a project this week entitled Hair Inspiration, for high-end hair product label Frederic Fekkai.  Here is my submission! It’s just about spring time for us in Montreal and today was a beautiful day. I decided to use the sun to highlight my hair and bring out the messy waves I had going on from having tied my hair up in a bun. My hair is normally super straight, but going straight is high maintenance. The second a strand falls out of place, I feel a need to fix it. Why not pull off casual and care-free with some messy waves?

by Pier Alexandre Gagne


This most likely freaks you out. Here is a photo of me (yes, me) after having grown 7 feet more – or having been masterfully stretched to seem so. Pier Alexandre Gagne is an editorial photographer who grew up in Quebec City and now resides in Montreal. Although it may disturb some to see themselves being stretched way out of proportion, I understand Pier’s importance for having an extraordinarily unique photography portfolio. It makes him sick to imagine a portfolio comprised of what may seem like ads straight from Vogue. Hence, this weird creation by someone who is willing to risk it all to stay loyal to his style!

Visit pieralexandregagne.com to see more of his work.

Have a great weekend!
