It Suits You

If you work in an office or otherwise professional environment, chances are you have a kind of unofficial work uniform that you rely on to dictate your wardrobe choices in the early AM. Which means (if you're anything like a certain blogger who shall remain nameless) that sometimes you find yourself stuck in a dressing rut. But dressing professionally certainly doesn't mean you can't be creative - and turn a few heads at the office while you're at it!

So yes, suit up for work if the environment requires it, but this season, kick the uniform habit with a fresh new suiting option! Plum's line of Tobias suits offers silhouettes to 'suit' (had to) every personality.

Tobias Jewel Neck Jacket, $189, and Side Zip Pants, $98

I love this suiting option for two reasons. 1) The jewel neckline is a refreshing change from the lapels on your standard jacket (this jacket also looks impossibly chic over jeans), and 2) Those clean, straight lines on the pants elongate the legs - we're talking legs for days, maybe even weeks.

For an updated and professional office outfit, I'd pair this suit with a collarless blouse in a bright colour or print, like this cobalt blue floral. If you prefer the lighter colour of the suit (first picture), try a similar blouse in a coral shade instead.

Plum Scoop Neck Blouse with Cap Sleeves, $65

 

How are you planning on reinterpreting the traditional suit this season? I'd love to hear your ideas!

A New Plum Line

We're welcoming a lovely new line of spring dresses to the fold! Tenki features fun patterns, floaty fabrics, and unique detailing and is already heavily represented in this blogger's spring wishlist.

Wear these flirty frocks now paired with an open cardi (I would suggest this one by Kersh) or a denim jacket and opaque tights. Equally fabulous with flats, boots, or a heeled Mary Jane. Then, as the temperatures creep up, layer down and go bare legged with wedges for a whole new look!

Spring is now officially right around the corner, which means it's time to start planning ahead for any special events you have on the horizon. If the new Tenki dresses are a smidge too casual for your upcoming weddings/bridal showers/baby showers/graduations/I could go on, try our in-house line of Simone dresses! They have all the flair and personality of these looks with more cross over formal appeal. Stand by for forthcoming blog post, or check out our newest Pinterest board for more what-on-earth-do-I-wear solutions! Wedding Guest Best Dressed

Colour me Bold

Follow

 

Image

Colour is a powerful tool in dressing. It can reveal your mood, showcase your personality, and broadcast your confidence. And, because it is so powerful, a lot of people tend to shy away from colour. And to them I say, why? There are so (so) many ways you can incorporate colour into your wardrobe. Whether you want to go bold, bolder, or be the absolute boldest, get colour working for you! 

Image

Bold: This look is great if you're interested in testing the colour waters. Ramp up your typical jeans + shirt combo (we love the Canadian tuxedo look, pictured above - surprisingly chic, isn't it?) with a punch of colour. Try a clutch or a statement necklace in any bold colour you love, and voilà.

Image

ImageImage

Bolder: If you're ready to graduate to the next level of colour, experiment with doing a closet staple, like this blazer, in a daring new hue. Anchored with black denim and a top in a classic stripe, the coloured blazer - and the lady wearing it - are the centre of attention. 

Image

Image

Boldest: If you really want to turn heads, colour yourself in from head to toe. Choose complimenting shades, like blue and yellow, and add some extra depth to your look to keep it from veering into  'primary' territory. A hint of leopard print peeking out and a chunky gold chain necklace fit the bill very nicely.

Image

 

Now tell me! How are you planning on rocking colour this season? You can leave me a comment here, on our Facebook page, or tweet me @PlumClothing.

Great Lengths

If you've been a Plum shopper for longer than about five minutes, chances are you've heard us singing the praises of our beloved Yoga Jeans (we've even blogged about them!). Our love affair has been renewed for this season with a brand new style: ankle-length skinnies. Unleash your inner 1950s gamine (hello, Audrey Hepburn) and create a slim new silhouette in the latest look from Plum.

They're effortlessly stylish with a pair of sneakers or ballet flats for running errands, but team them up with statement jewellery and stilettoes to really vamp up your look for a night out. Best of all, you can even start wearing them right now - just tuck 'em into your favourite pair of boots!

We're so excited with this brand new style that we're putting our Yoga Jeans on s-a-l-e! For five days only, Thursday February 7th - Monday February 11th, all our YJ styles, including the brand new ankle-length skinnies, are on for just $95 (reg. $110-120). Whether you're already a convert, or if you've never tried Yoga Jeans before (they really are as comfortable as you've heard), now is the perfect time to make them yours!

A Transition, A Transformation

February is a month of transitions. We're in that tricky middle ground where the weather is still cool but we're oh-so eager to warm up to spring styles and colours. But why choose between fashion and comfort when you can have both?

The perfect way to start integrating spring style into a winter wardrobe is by choosing transitional pieces, like a cardigan, in bright or pastel colours. By layering them now with a scarf and a jacket, you have a fashionable fix for your winter blues and the first building block of your spring wardrobe. While you may not be ready to 'spring' in yet, a colourful cardi is a great way to dip your toes in to spring style.

Image

Enter the Kersh cardigans, in a classic ribbed waist button down (above right) and in a long, open style (above left) in six (six!) Plum exclusive colours, plus basic black and white. They're the perfect way to transition to springtime dressing!

And now, because we want to help you get a jump start on our favourite spring styles, we're having a promo on our Kersh cardis! Our short, ribbed waist style is on for $39 (reg. $49) and our long, open style is on for $45 (reg. 59). Consider it our Valentine's Gift to you!
