Get the Most Out of Your Jacket

Blazers have evolved over the last few years as a staple in every wardrobe.  They’ve lost their stifling association with suits and become a hot commodity all on their own.  A great jacket or blazer is the golden to ticket to fresh and trendy layering; the cherry on top of the styling cake. 

Investing in a well made jacket leaves so much to the imagination.  We gathered some streetstyle inspiration to show how some fashionistas are sporting their blazers through all the seasons.

Learn To Love The Sweater Again

Follow

Image

Officially, autumn has begun, and with the change in weather, there's nothing more appealing than knitwear, and this season, the sweater makes the outfit. 

This season's prints and textures range from the quirky and non-traditional, to new varieties of age-old favorites such as fair isle or stripes.   We are loving loose or gauzy knits over camisoles, or thick, chunky, knit tape sweaters over a maxi dress. Dropped stitch sweaters and cut-out shoulders are edgier options your mother would never have worn, but you could always go with the classic ribbed waist or turned cuff cardigans for lady-like ensembles for those times when she comes to visit.

Interesting details like fringe, pockets and buttons give this season's sweaters a fashionable edge over previous season basics, so you'll want to get varieties in all different of this season's rich hues.  Don't think black; I'm appealed to the palette of rusts, browns, charcoals, blush pinks, burgundies, teals, greens, reds and navy blues.  

Fall is here, so you can learn to love the sweater again.

Denim Days

We can't stop thinking about the essential fall layering pieces like sweaters, scarves, boots, and of course, the right jeans (no closet is complete until you own a pair of jeans that you absolutely love).  This season, Plum is proud to carry a wide selection of Mavi Jeans. Their products are made to look and feel like premium denim, without the matching price tag.  We've highlighted a few of our favourite styles for you, from wide leg to skinnies and somewhere in between.

Dawn is a modern, high rise trouser.  This style flatters the waist whilst elongating the leg.  Pair it with a slouchy tee or a patterned georgette blouse to complete the look.

Mavi Dawn Trouser $88

Molly sits higher and tapers near the waist matching the natural line of the body. This style is also slimmer in the knee with a slight bootcut.  It’s a consistently popular fit at Plum, featured in some new washes for fall.

Alexa is a sexy mid rise that is narrow throughout the entire leg and tapers at the ankle.  They are the perfect skinny jean to tuck into a great pair of boots!

Soulful Seventies

There's a reason why I'm always drawn to the fashion the 1970's.  The era evokes the type of woman I want to emulate: bold, independent, earthy, educated-a woman who holds her own.   

Women's fashion showed off a confident, sexy woman unseen in previous decades.  Tailored, wide-legged pants, silk blouses tucked in to their waist,  wide brimmed hats, waist-cinching blazers and belted, textured knits portrayed the new feminine lifestyle. Womanly maxi skirts and dresses, bohemian accents like fringe and suede, floral prints and indigenous accents evidence the choice and freedom of this period. 

 I love the interplay of masculine and feminine elements: a structured pant with a billowing, bow blouse; a flowing maxi skirt with a tailored, crisp shirt, and skinny belt; The depth of experience with globetrotter accessories: fringed belts and bags, gemstone jewels.  This season I'll be referencing this era with extravagance and soul.
