BABY, IT’S COLD OUTSIDE
Spice up your cold weather wardrobe this winter by mixing in these hot trends.
Green with Envy
We all love our blacks, greys, and navies in the colder months. They look great with everything and hide the dirt from the hustle and bustle of winter. Even wine and camel have become closet staples for fall and winter. If you’re looking for something a little different this year, go green. There’s just something about green that’s calming and peaceful. A great alternative to the same old and just as versatile, green in natural shades like earthy forest is an easy style solution for those of us looking for something unique but not over-the-top.
Florals for Winter… Groundbreaking.
That’s right, florals are here to stay, beyond the sunny days and warm temperatures of summer. Take your outfits up a notch from the tried and true solids and dark hues by adding the winter floral, inspired by vintage prints from your grandma’s wallpaper or your aunt’s living room drapes. Florals are everywhere, from casual tops to outerwear. If playful floral print blouses and dresses aren’t your thing, try a floral embroidered bootie for a more subtle yet statement-making on-trend look.
Plaid is Rad
In Canada, we tend to wear a lot of plaid in the winter. The red and black buffalo check is pretty popular, but you don’t have to look like a lumberjack. Think outside the flannel button-ups. This season, plaid is vintage and formal. Try a checked suit or dress for the office, or perhaps top off your outfit with a plaid coat. If you aren’t fond of patterns, pick a plaid in a neutral colour palette for an elevated but not boring look.
Go for Glitter
It’s the holiday season (the holiday season!) and we love everything that sparkles and shines. Glitter and metallics always get our attention, whether in silver or jewel tones. It also looks great against the winter staples of black, grey, and dark blue. So grab a pair of fabulous glitter boots, or stand out at the party in a liquid metallic frock. You’ll look and feel like a million bucks.
Red About Now
Red is never dead, but it was all over the Fall 2017 runways, and not just in pieces. I’m talking head-to-toe red in long dresses, suits, hats, and boots. Red is bold. For the loudest look, go monochromatic. Choose a more toned-down shade and mix in other colours for a less obvious look.
The 2018 Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang are right around the corner! Cheer on Team Canada by wearing the official gear unveiled by Hudson’s Bay, the official outfitters of the Canadian Olympic Team. Red, white, and black make up the colour palette for this collection, as in years past. The 2018 collection also features a new iteration of the iconic red mittens. If you like colour blocking, soft-shell jackets, maple leaves, and of course, supporting Canada, this collection is right up your alley.
