Style that Lasts

Style that lasts goes hand-in-hand with items that can mix and match with other pieces in your closet and create looks out of single garments. Every wardrobe should have pieces that create stylish outfits in little time and these are the must-have items that I am always on the lookout for:

The Jacket: Investing in a great fitting jacket not only gives you endless wardrobe combinations from jeans to suits, but when you need to look polished and professional, you have the perfect solution in your closet. Tobias Jackets are renowned for their incredible fit and during our summer sale, they are as low as $89.

Image

The Dress: A go-to dress looks chic without effort, and shows off your best assets. Go for a bold colour like this blue for longevity, or a print that works with many of your wardrobe’s coordinates to always have the perfect dress for any event. Simone dresses are designed for a variety of body shapes and now start at $49.

Image

The Right Accessory: Scarves, purses and jewellery have incredible power to take a drab outfit and show off your personality and style. Expand from your usual pickings while the price is right and go for bold colours, interesting prints and textures like snake print for fun and added visual interest. During the sale, all jewellery is 25% off and purses are 50% off the original ticket, while all scarves are just $10 each.

Made in Canada with Love

Follow

As Rebekah said goodbye to Plum, I'd like to introduce myself as the new face behind the No Guru blog. My name is Lindsay and I am a lover of all things fashion. I think we'll get along well!

Here at Plum, for this Canada Day long weekend, we are celebrating all things Canadian, especially our favorite fashion brands designed and made with love right here at home.  Plum shoppers adore the fact that our in-house designs are made in local Vancouver factories. 

Image

Manufacturing locally, we have a distinct advantage in ensuring the excellent fits that we are known for in our Simone and Tobias lines. Our designs are made in limited quantities so each style is unique, not mass-produced, but is still right on trend.

Image

Second Jeans also designs and manufactures our favorite Yoga jeans in la belle province of Quebec. By keeping their manufacturing 3 hours from their headquarters in Montréal, they are able to respond immediately to new denim trends. Also, by producing locally, they need to meet Canadian environmental standards so their dyes and washes won't pollute our waterways.

Image

This season, we are loving the ankle cuff skinny Yoga jean in red, blueberry and teal regularly $120, now on sale for $75 for 5 days only! Two other deals you will want to take advantage of are the high-rise skinny Yoga jean in white regularly $120, that is now priced at $89 and our high-rise skinny ankle length Yoga jean in black and classic blue regularly $110, that is now priced at $85.

Midnight Cactus, our lovely jewellery line, is proudly made by hand in Nova Scotia. Pat Manthorne, the designer, uses only sterling silver and semi-precious stones to create stylish earrings. This weekend, all jewellery, including Midnight Cactus, is 50% off for 5 days only!

Plus, there will be many more specials in store.

I hope to see you there!

Casual & Chic

One of the biggest style challenges we face as summer gets under way is retaining our sense of style despite the climbing temperatures. You want to look casual and feel comfortable, but you still want to dress in a way that represents you and your style. To get the best of both worlds, I recommend looking for lightweight knits in a fun or unique silhouette. Let the shape, colour, and print of the garment do the work  - you just have to throw it on and go!

 

Image

Outfit Details: Short sleeve Simone dress with handkerchief hem, $75.

The asymmetrical hemline and the delicate stripe (so perfectly on trend) of this Simone dress turn a simple and casual knit dress into a truly stylish option for spring and summer.

If you find yourself drawn instead to the simple t-shirt and jeans combo, you can revitalize this look using the same principle. Instead of the classic plain tee, opt for one with unique detailing (I suggest a print or a modern cut, like in the picture below) for an automatic and chic update.

Outfit Details: Cap sleeve Plum tee with flared back panel, $59 $45. White skinny jeans with ankle zipper, $120.

Event Season

Whether you're ready or not, event season is officially here (it is late April. Let that fact sink in for a minute). I'm talking bridal showers, patio parties, weddings, graduations, and oh so many more events that are likely to sneak up on you this spring. Rather than stress out about it, or worse, ignore it, until you wake up the morning of with not a thing to wear, choose dresses for an easy, stylish solution to your wardrobe woes!

Image

Simone shift dress, in black, blue, and red, $120

A fun shift dress in a bold colour is sure to turn heads. The beauty of this Simone number is its simplicity - you could wear it as is or it would make a great foundation for layering (try a pretty sheer blouse underneath, or a chambray shirt over top and knotted around your natural waist).

 

Image

Simone sleeveless lace dress, in coral, royal, and jade, $129

Lace is a perennial favourite for spring dressing, and it works especially well in a waist-cinching style. Keep the look modern with some fun, colourful baubles (see above and below!). Go all out with bright shoes (above) or make the ensemble more streamlined with nude pumps (below).

How to Style Printed Pants

Category:
Follow

 

Image

Printed denim is the latest street fashion frontier that I can't wait to break through. What appeals to me most is that wearing these pants is A) just as easy as throwing on a favourite pair of jeans and B) instantly ups your style game. If the bold prints and colours have you hesitating, read on and see just how weareable (and versatile!) these styles can be.

Mavi Printed Denim, in Yellow, Teal, Red, and White/Pink, $98

If you're loving printed denim but feeling truly uninspired, don't forget that you can always wear them with a plain tee for effortless impact! Elevate this look with a printed scarf (same rules as above - choose a smaller pattern to complement the larger print of the jeans).

Is this a trend you'll be rocking this spring or summer? How are you planning on styling the look?

Trend Report: Linen

Our Tobias linen jackets are a perennial favourite among our customers and staffers alike. This style works as a fun alternative to a suit jacket and as a light outerwear layer, making it a perfect transitional piece for spring. Versatility, thy name is linen!

Previously, we've seen a lot of linen in neutral, earthy tones. But with bright hues dominating on the runways, in the streets, and let'sfaceit, in our hearts as we wait out winter, I can't keep ignoring my craving for colour.

And whoever said you had to choose between the fabric and the colour of your dreams anyway? Plum's latest linen jacket is now available in lush Mulberry, warm Mustard, and a classic neutral!

Image(Left) Tobias linen jacket, $189. Leaf print skirt, $75 (Right) Butterfly print scarf, $28. Boyfriend jeans, $108.

A tailored jacket like this one is an excellent wardrobe building block. This little number really ties outfits together. Pair it with a printed skirt for a unique and timeless wedding look. Swap the skirt for boyfriend jeans and run the Sunday errands in style and comfort.

 

How do you love rocking a fabulous spring jacket?
