With the end of June nearing and July right around the corner, it’s time to start preparing for Canada Day. For many Canada Day can be an event that marks the beginning of summer, making it all the more fun and exciting. Whether you’re going to be staying home and celebrating with a backyard barbecue or rather have bigger plans like venturing out to a community celebration or fireworks, you’re going to need a cute and festive outfit. Not sure what to wear this Canada day?Don’t worry Hunnis, we’ve got you covered with this Canada day inspired style guide!
Summer is upon us, and with it comes a rush of nostalgia for seasons past. Although the summers I have lived through wouldn’t quite qualify as “vintage”, the idealization of what had happened – rather than happening – incites a sense of longing and romanticism for what may have been an ultimately mundane three months. However, lack of first hand experience doesn’t mean we can’t dress as though it is the height of the 1950s and Frank Sinatra is on repetition on our car radio.
A timeless pattern I have mentioned time and time again is stripes. It is ageless, versatile, and not committed to any one season. The popularization of this alternating pattern is routed in nautical fashion, which was originally sported by sailors. Although we have previously associated stripes with floating out at sea and the maritime, stripes have become so normalized that we no longer need associate such patterns with the open ocean. For this post, I’ve attempted to show you a couple ways you can maintain the nautical influence while modernizing this style to fit the streets!
Hello there Hunnis!
Lets celebrate because the time has come where I chat about this year’s spring trends as I implement them into my own, personal wardrobe. Big thank you to mother nature for finally bringing some sunshine and warmth, rather than our typically dreary PNW weather! So as you have probably guessed, today I will be sharing some of the spring trends that we are sure to be wearing throughout the next couple of months! Including everything from prints to different styles, keep reading to learn about a few easy pieces you can add into your wardrobe to be on trend this spring!
Aside from the obvious reasons for attending a music festival this summer, such as seeing your favourite artists perform live or spending the weekend dancing beneath the sunshine, one our favourite parts of festival season is of course, the outfits and style. In the world of music festivals, anything goes when it comes to fashion. This can be quite a daunting thought for many, but don’t worry Hunnis, that’s why we’re here! Every April festival season is kicked off at one of the world’s most popular and widely celebrated music festivals, Coachella. With weekend one behind us and weekend two only a few more days away, we thought it would be the perfect time to compile a guide on everything you need to know about this upcoming festival season.
We tend to fall into the trap of basics, focusing on the simple and recombinable, rather than the statement. Our gravitation to items that are easy to throw on, are not made without merit, they timeless and neutral, leaving little doubt for its wear-ability. However, we’ve all had those moments when we find an outrageous or slightly out of our comfort zone piece that is that encourages a similar gravitation, but we pass on it thinking we could never style it. This is why I’ve decided show you a few ways that you can.
Although we may not have attended any runway shows this season that doesn’t mean we can’t stay up on the trends. We love admiring runway fashion but it can be so hard to tackle high fashion trends in everyday life. Through lots of trial and error we have found a few ways to keep on trend without breaking the bank and without compromising personal style. To make it easier to navigate the world of fashion trends this season we’ve put together some of our favourite runway looks for Winter 2018 paired with examples of how to make them wearable. Let us know what you think and tell us your favourite 2018 trend so far in the comments below!
Vancouver has been a bit of a mystery this year, abandoning our Three Seasons of Rain agenda for prolonged winters, humid summers, and an almost nonexistent autumn. It seems as though the leaves had just begun to fall when the flurries of frozen rain decided they wanted to fall too. Luckily, fall fashion (the most wondrous and cozy styles of the year!) is made for such uncommitted weather.
Simple, neutral, sometimes a bit avant-garde. Minimalism is dominating our social media screens, and shaping our creative outlets to redefine what constitutes as artistic. Art can now take the shape of a lonesome footstool by a sheet of white walls and be understood as a concept. As a result of the popularization of the neutral aesthetic, minimalist fashion has been allowed to diverge into multitudes of style variations and continue to be understood as minimalism. I have defined this typology into four categories: High Street, Active/Casual, Posh, and Artist; however, these categories are just a loose reference to gain a better understanding of the variety!
If you have read any of my other blog posts you will know that I am a lover of all things athletic and street style inspired (how many more times can I tell you I like sneakers?) Not only do I love how this style looks I also love how functional and comfortable it is. I am a student, and if there are any other students out there I’m sure you can all agree that comfort is key when it comes to school attire. Combine all this together and we have today’s blog post; how to style athletic wear.
