Street Style Lookbook: Toughen Up!


For years, we’ve cited a trusty pair of Dr. Martens boots and a well-cut moto jacket as two /major/ wardrobe staples – but, paired with ripped denim, leather, and killer sunglasses to boot, the aforementioned have never looked *tougher*. Warm weather may be rapidly approaching, but that doesn’t mean #allblackeverything is any less relevant. So take out yr toques (for one final time), and be our punk rock princesses! *mean muggin* read more…

Street Style Lookbook: Toronto Fashion Week (Part 2)

Toronto Fashion Week might be coming to a speedy close, but our second instalment of street style comes with no shortage of texture, rich autumnal darks, and supple leathers paired with tartans and floaty separates. Our fall fashion radar in definitely high gear, so pardon us as we outsource all of the above (and chop our hair into a sleek bob a la FORA contributor Jenn (left) while we’re at it). read more…

Sunday Morning Moodboard: Think Pink

On Sundays, we think pink! Today’s moodboard is dedicated to the cotton candy pink that we so adore. Pink hair, pink jackets, pink buildings, and can we talk about this pink cat (don’t call PETA on us, we assume it’s Photoshopped). No other colour makes us feel as pretty as pink does. Also, no other colour makes us crave sugar like pink can (…or is that just me?). We hope you have a pink-tastic Sunday morning and that you make good life choices today! read more…

Street Style Look Book: Shorts 4ever

The heat wave seems to have lifted (for now), so we’re finally back to dressing like semi-puttogether people; and shorts are at the root of this semi-puttogether everyday uniform.

I know we often take these super-cropped pantular devices for granted – as they come hand-in-hand leg-in-leg (???no???) with the season – but it’s important to vocalize why they’re so glorious every now and then. Not only do they keep you as ~cool~ as possible, but they also leave lots of room for 1) leg-tanning and 2) seemingly endless styling options. So keep your cool…and don’t get short with me…as we take a gander at the plethora of ways 7 lovely street stylers styled their stylish butt-covers…^_^ read more…

That’s why we rounded up a selection of street stylers who combine the best of both worlds – styling stellar outfits around their plain ol’ t-shirt.

Let’s get back to basics, shall we? read more…

Street Style Lookbook: Sneakerheads

Earlier this week, we headed over to The Bata Shoe Museum to check out Karim Rashid’s Out of the Box: The Rise of Sneaker Culture exhibition.
