I have had this sweater since last year, and it quickly became my favorite! It’s loose-fit cut and big mesh create a breathable pocket of warmth. The ultimate in comfort! I like to wear it with this skirt. I think that mixing different textured pieces is a really quick and easy way to have an original look, even if it’s all black. Very practical!
I really love simple ideas that enhance a look!
Simply knot an oversize tee to complement the waistline. Here, I deliberately made the knot on the opposite side of the pocket to create an interesting asymmetrical detail.
These little ideas make a big difference in styling. What do you think?
A tone on tone look, with a little twist…
To break the classic perfect all white look, it’s trendy to play with other tones like ivory, cream or light grey. This way, the outfit is more interesting to look at and gives the impression that it wasn’t perfectly planned… and more relaxed.
It’s also really hard to get a 100% perfect all white look! Most of the time, there’s a slight difference between the two pieces. By embracing the different tones, it definitely eliminates the pointless color puzzle!
This place by the Saint-Lawrence river on l’Île-des-Soeurs is a well-kept secret! I love to go there at sunset to clear my mind and center myself.
It was also the perfect place to take a few pictures of this splendid dress. The fabric is definitely surprising as the weave seems rough, but as soon as you touch it, you realize how soft and breathable it is.
By belting at the waistline, it enhances the curves of the silhouette. But I prefer to wear it in its simplest form. I’m more comfortable that way and I love to wear casual looks in the summer! The straight cut is currently en vogue in New York and I think we’ll be seeing it more here soon!
You will find this dress and belt at Les Étoffes.
It has been cold and rainy in Montreal lately, and this soft trench is the perfect piece to cope with this kind of weather. It’s a light and flexible coat that moves with the body. This one is made of lyocell, a fiber that is soft, durable and comfortable, but still green and biodegradable.
Combined with a striped tee and white pants, this look allows you to adjust to varying weather, while remaining elegant, feminine and relaxed.
I really am happy to find culottes in boutiques this year. I had a pair 10 years ago and I missed them a lot.
Culottes are a very versatile piece which is ideal for summer, but are also very easy to match in fall. Add an oversized sweater and you will instantly create a relaxed yet sophisticated look. It can also be appropriate for work with a blazer or classic top, and it’s absolutely sublime with heels! But you know me, I love to wear flats (especially when walking on paved street), that’s why I decided to wear my sneakers.
Here is some advice when searching for your pair:
- Opt for a model with a high waist: the belt should be where your waist is thinest (or a bit lower). This benefits the silhouette.
- Look for wrinkle resistant fabrics. I also like heavier ones because they create a beautiful movement while walking.
- Pay close attention to the cut. There are a lot of different models on the market, with different lengths, some are also more loose than others, with waist pleats, and so on. It is definitely worth it to try on a few pairs and find the one that fits you perfectly!
