How to Style Printed Pants

Category:

 

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

Category:

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?

Sometimes, two of the most beautiful concepts in fashion come together and it is glorious. Today, these are eyelet lace and a full-skirt dress. Cue heart palpitations.

We had gorgeous weekend weather in Vancouver (people were in their bathing suits in March, that happened). No more denial, it's officially time to break free of the winter pants prison and let your legs breathe in dresses! Bonus points for doing this look in all-over colour. I'm loving the shades of blues and greens together, it gives an already stunning dress just a liiiittle extra pop.

Necklace in Mint, $42, and purse in Blue, $39.

 

If you've already mastered the head-to-toe colour challenge, take it to the next level with head-to-toe pattern! Try a geometric print for a fresh and modern spring ensemble, and wear with confidence. A casual top knot and cat eye sunnies finish this look off purrrfectly.

3 Looks for your Long Weekend

Simone Cap Sleeve Dress, $125

With a weekend full of food, family, friends, and visiting (and chocolate!) fast approaching, the last thing you need to fret about is what-oh-what to wear. Opt for a spring dress in a fresh colour, like a robin's egg blue or a coral (you guys, I don't want to jinx this but...the Vancouver weather forecast for this weekend is 17 degrees and sunny. It is high time to break out the dresses!). Finish your look off with a pair of nude pumps - they'll give you legs for days and go with absolutely everything.

Simone Mixed Media Sheath Dress, $115

I especially love the shape of this Simone mixed media sheath. The long vertical lines will elongate your form, and the gentle curves of the dress are certain to flatter your own enviable curves.

 

If you prefer a little something in a fuller skirt, try this number. The classic shape paired with the on-trend bird print is a perfect match, and can easily be dressed up and down. We love it layered with a denim vest for a casual chic look!

Are you ready for spring dress season? I know I am!

Gal's Got Options

Mavi Denim Jacket in Mid Nolita (pictured), Nile Green, and White, $98

It often seems like we live with unlimited options, for everything from our coffee order to our shade of lipstick. But, until relatively recently, this array of choices just didn't seem to extend to our jean collection. Sure, we had blue, black, boot cut and straight leg and...um...ok, that's about it. Functional? Yes. Boring? Mmm..a bit.

Happily, the tides of style have shifted in recent years! We can now customize our look with denim in colours, prints, and fits of every possible description. Blue denim is still a vital staple in our wardrobe, but now we can have it in a boyfriend jean, a denim jacket, a button down, or anything else that strikes our fancy.

Plum's got you covered (literally, head-to-toe) in your favourite denim, whatever your fancy might be.

Try the latest variations of the classic denim jacket - a slimmer, more tailored fit in new colours for spring. Play on the Canadian Tuxedo look and wear it over coloured jeans, like these new ankle-length skimmers from Yoga Jeans.

Shop the look: Plum tank with low scoop back, in navy (left), green, black (right), and red, $32. Turned cuff Yoga skinnies, in red, blueberry, and teal (right), $120. Mavi Denim Jacket in Mid Nolita (left), Nile Green, and White, $98.

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.

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