Vancouver Street Style

Well, hello there! For our blog post this week, we've been taking to the streets of downtown Vancouver in the name of style! Photographer Richard Dolmat and I were pounding the pavement in search of fun and unique styles to document for No Guru.

Image

Here's me, getting the ball rolling (and/or getting in the way of the photographer doing the test shot)

While there were those that breezed right on past, leaving my "I love your outfit!" trailing behind them, we did find some cheerful participants and some notable style to document. 

So, without further ado, here's your outfit inspiration for the day!

Neon floral? Colour me green with envy

I spy with my little eye a gorgeous cardigan from Plum.

 

Image

That's what I call a dedication to coordination. Love everything about this pic!

 

Image

I love colour in all its forms, but sometimes you forget that neutrals can pack a 'wow' factor too.

 

Image

Coral and green make a great colour combination.

 

Image

Two fashionistas (and two very different looks) at once! It just goes to show, there are lots of ways to be stylish.

A boho-chic dress is toughened up a notch with these stilettos.

If shoe envy is the sincerest form of flattery, this gal should feel very flattered.

We also  bumped into a gang of roving ninjas! One even climbed a tree. Gotta give them props for running around in all black in July. Hope those ninja suits breathe!

 

Scoping these street styles gave me a chance to reflect on all of the big trends that we saw over the spring and summer. Neon, florals, coloured denim, beautiful bold prints, we saw a bit of everything! But what I'd really love is to see some of the great styles you've been sporting this season!

E-mail me a photo of yourself rocking a spring trend (along with your permission for me to post it) and we'll consider posting it on No Guru! If you've got style, help spread the wealth ;)

E-mail photos to rebekah@plum.ca

Or if you just want to weigh in on your favourite trend from spring, you can leave a comment here, on our Facebook page (facebook.com/PlumClothing), or tweet me @PlumClothing

 

And if you like street style, here are some other great Canadian blogs you should definitely check out:

Danna from Halifax has a great eye for street style and documents it (as well as other musings on fashion and beauty) on her blog, YouLookFiiine

Stefania writes her street style blog, Textstyles,  out of Toronto. Textstyles is very visually interesting and definitely merits a look-see.  

And for Vancouver style, StyleQuotient is a must-see. It's a beautiful website featuring stunning fashion photography.

Have fun!

Spring 2012 Simone dresses are exclusive to Plum

When you wear a dress it should always say something about you.  If it is to a wedding, or a garden party, going out for dinner or even to work, you expect your dress to tell the world something about you.  You can’t say that about any other garment that you wear like you can about dresses.

We take great care in creating dresses that fit and are wonderful to wear.  Simone dresses are made in Vancouver where we can watch every step.  We care at Plum because Simone dresses can only be purchased in our stores.

Spring Colour!

Shut up about the sweaters already!  We are so tired of wearing sweaters and the dreary dark layers of winter we want to scream!

Mostly because we are dizzy with anticipation for the colour that has burst into fashion this spring.  
 
It isn’t just coloured jeans either … there is colour in everything from t-shirts and dresses to scarves and brightly coloured purses and accessories. Burnt orange, magenta and indigo in graphic prints like IKAT and polka dots.
 
Our favorites are the floral patterns that go from delicate mini blossoms and vintage bouquets to bright, bold oversized blooms.
 
Claudia, our designer says, “We're seeing a lot of clean bright colours like coral, red, green and yellow but there is also a soft romantic trend that features colours like dusty rose, peach and mint. Lace and vintage prints are part of this trend.”

Jackets for Spring

Admittedly, you may not have the chutzpa to wear flaming red jeans like we have in our picture, but the new blazer can be taken anywhere... dressed up or casual... it is all about your imagination. Try it with any of our coloured skinnies or a pair of dark denim bootcuts for a more sophisticated look.
 
Image
 
This naval inspired blazer is a bronze-buttoned double-breasted classic.  Great quality for a great price. $175.

Here is our Tobias shawl collar cropped jacket, reminiscent of the famous Helmut Lang version. It can be worn over skinnies, a pencil skirt, or even one of our Simone dresses. Our version is a lasting investment at $159.

This Tobias linen jacket is coming in April.
 
 
Visit plum.ca to see the latest arrivals at Plum.
 
Plum would love to know: 
  • When was the last time you wore a jacket?
  • What did you wear with it?

A Colour Revival

Coloured jeans have not been around since the early 90’s, so it may seem a bit intimidating, but have no fear as there are many ways to wear coloured denim! Here we have put together some easy looks for each Mavi jean currently in Plum stores.
 

 

  Image  Image  Image
 
 
Purple jeans with a quarter tucked blouse and simple accessories makes it an easy look for anyone.
The Classic fitted black blazer gives a more sophisticated take on this new colour story.
Trendier fashionistas can add a flared striped tank with the latest raggy scarf to really rock this trend.

Blue denim on coloured denim makes it easy to introduce a completely different colour while producing a stand out look.
A favourite combo is the slubby easy fit half-tuck T with a scarf that pulls it all together.
A light weight striped blazer is a great look for a casual evening dinner date or weekend brunch.

Easy open cardi in soft heathered sand with a white button down shirt neutralizes the red and makes it easy on the eyes.
Whoever says you can’t wear coloured bottoms with prints hasn’t seen this fashion statement.
Contrast the same cardigan over a charcoal heathered T makes another strong colour statement that is easy to wear.
 
Changing any of these looks is easy. Footwear makes a dramatic change. I recommend ballet flats, converses, heels or knee high boots to complete these looks. For the flats, cuffing the jeans changes the look yet again.
