Plum's Perfect 10: #4 The High Rise Skinny Yoga Jean

Category:

Plum's Perfect 10 is a collection of 10 items that we love. Our fourth selection of this series is all about Second’s High Rise Skinny Yoga Jean in Black, an all-time favourite since our buyer discovered the Canadian-made brand several years ago.  We love this high rise style because Yoga jeans have curved waistbands that fit the body better than standardized straight-lined patterns that are the norm in the denim industry. The rise on these jeans is also the highest of yoga jean styles and perhaps why they are the most popular—we feel held in!

Image

The look of these jeans can be dressed up or casual depending on what you have planned. For an easy look on the weekend, tuck your skinny jeans into boots, and add a cuffed sleeve Plum Pullover Crewneck Sweatshirt, a wrapped printed scarf, and a cross-body bag.  To dress up these skinny jeans, wear the Magenta Blouse with Flared Hem and Large Pockets below, layered jewelled statement necklaces, a metallic clutch and high heels.  

Image

Yoga jeans have a 4 way stretch and moves with your body (so much so the company sent dancers down the runway).  Yoga jeans also have a 92% shape memory so after a day of wearing the jeans, they still retain their fit. No saggy knees or bums ladies!

Did I mention that Yoga jeans are designed and manufactured in Quebec? The High Rise Skinny Yoga Jean in Black is priced at $110 and is always in stock in Plum stores. 

We give these jeans a perfect 10. How are you wearing them?

Plum's Perfect 10: #3 The Plum Knit Skirt

Plum’s Perfect 10 is a collection of 10 items that we love. Our third selection is the Plum Knit Skirt because it is the perfect backdrop to any outfit. This fitted knit pencil skirt stretches when your body moves, but you feel pulled together as if you were wearing office wear. No one will notice the difference!

Image

Build any look off this comfortable and stylish skirt. Try the preppy look above with this Kensie Polka Dot Sweater in Cream Combo (coming soon!), Plum’s Classic White Button-up, and a statement necklace worn just at the crewneck with the collar buttoned up. Or dress this skirt up for a night out with the Cap Sleeve Blouse with Flared Back (below), a layered jeweled chain necklace and a bold clutch.

Image

Wear the waistband high, and it gives you the sense that you are held in. Or fold the waistband over and wear at hip level. The double layer knit lining has a smoothing function, so no VPLs (Visible Panty Lines) to be spotted! Just pull the Plum knit skirt on and balance comfort and style. This season, the Plum Knit Skirt is priced at $49 dollars and is available in Empire Grey and Rolling Stone Brown.

We give this skirt a perfect 10. How are you wearing it?

Plum's Perfect 10: #2 The Crossover Cap Sleeve Top

Category:

Image

Plum’s Perfect 10 is a collection of 10 pieces that we love. Our second selection, the Plum Crossover Cap Sleeve Top is one of our favorite pieces to wear because it is flattering for women of all shapes. The crossover style creates a V neck that elongates the upper body and draw attentions to the face. Fitted but not clingy, the fabric subtly defines the waist when it ruches on the side.

Image

Dressier than a t-shirt, the top works to create a multitude of looks. As shown below in Orchid, the bright colour of the top pulls this work appropriate outfit together when tucked into the Grey Print Elastic Waist Pencil Skirt. We love to add a pop of colour with this top and this season, there is quite a variety of fall hues: Cranberry, Dijon, Moss, Navy, Sea Green and Orchid.  Also available in Black, Ivory and White, the crossover top is the perfect layering piece.

Image

For weekend excursions, layer the crossover top under a Kersh Tabbed Sleeve Cardigan with your favorite skinny bottoms like the Mavi Alexa pants in Caramel paisley print above. A large printed scarf ties the look together. The Plum Crossover Cap Sleeve Top is priced at $39.

We give this top a perfect 10. How are you wearing it?

Plum's Perfect 10: #1 The Side Ribbed Blouse

Plum's Perfect 10 is a collection of 10 pieces that we love. Our first selection, the Plum Side Ribbed Blouse is one of our favorite pieces to wear because of its versatility. The tabbed sleeves and the side ribbed panels are a spin on the classic white button-up blouse but we also have great colours this season: Merlot, Rider Blue and Rolling Stone Brown.

Image

Our love of this blouse can be boiled down to the two ribbed panels that give a fitted look down the sides of the body and slim the waist. The rolled tabbed sleeves also hit the right spot on the arm for a flattering sleeve length.

Image

Even styled more casually, this blouse never looks frumpy. Leave the blouse undone over your denim skinny jeans; the length is not too short or too long. No need to iron it to a crisp, because the blouse looks good even slightly crumpled. If you want to look more put together, tuck the blouse in to a pencil skirt, like this Elastic Waist Polka Dot Pencil Skirt. The open neckline is ideal for showing off a statement necklace. The Side Ribbed Blouse is in stores now and priced at $69. 

We give this blouse a perfect 10.  How are you wearing it?

Sunny Day Dresses

On the way to work this week, I had two compliments from strangers on how nice I looked in my dress. Don’t you just love mornings like that?

That morning, I put on a sleeveless eyelet dress that I had bought for a wedding I attended this summer and that I had only worn once. Over top, I wore a floral print cardigan and I slid on some silver bangles to make it appropriate for the office.  Later that evening, I took the cardigan off, switched my flat sandals to ones with a slight heel, and put on some dangly earrings, and I was fit to go to a social function I was invited to right after work. The dress easily took me from work to an evening event with just a slight change in accessories.

Image

When I think about how little I fretted over what to wear that morning, I know that is the beauty of a dress.  During hot, summer weather, there is nothing like a dress in creating easy and stylish looks.

This week, we are offering an additional 20% off all spring/summer blouses and dresses in store so you will have more reason to add a few more dresses and blouses to your wardrobe.   Start planning your wardrobe for your mid-winter escape and get your packing done early! Offer ends next Tuesday.

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.
