Despite the fact that we never quite know what the weather is going to be in Alberta - will we need a parka or shorts today? - we do know that eventually, for a few glorious months, we will be warm. We embrace it with short shorts, bright prints and we don't wear socks unless we ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO from May- September. Here are our Fashion Specialist's must have capsule pieces that you can mix and match all season long.
Rompers are here to stay and we have confidently added them into "Capsule Wardrobe" status. Why? Wear it on it's own with sneakers or sandals and it's a two-piece outfit. Add a denim jacket for a casual look, or a leather jacket and heels for a night out - it's a versatile core piece that can be worn SO many ways.
Capsule pieces don't need to be black and white - add pops of colour in classic silhouettes that you love to provide contrast! This season we are loving the sneaker sundress (available in 4 colours) that is a flattering for every body style. Use the sundress as a core piece and dress it up or down depending on your day! Add wedge heels and a floppy hat for brunch on the patio, or a chic updo and fancy wrap kimono for a backyard wedding.
The Chunky Knit Sweater is a quintessential basic chic piece. Vertical Stripes add a French-girl classic look that is a must have in any wardrobe, as is the chunky cardigan sweater with vintage-style wooden oversize buttons. It's an easy piece to tuck into your favourite denim shorts or wear over a sundress on chilly summer nights.
Whether they look like you took scissors to an old favourite pair of jeans, or they've got a neat rolled hem, denim shorts have been here since the 60's and they aren't going anywhere anytime soon. If you're scared to try them - don't be! There is a fit and style for literally every body type. Do them in a classic blue jean, or try these black denim shorts for a slimming effect.
