When it comes to style, Vancouver has been known for the increasing trend of yoga pants. But yoga pants are not always flattering on certain people’s physiques because it leaves very little to the imagination—we’re talking muffin tops and cellulite.
If you are wearing yoga pants to any event other than to exercise you are being lazy, period, no excuses. You have also contributed to our ranking in GQ magazine as the third worst dressed city in the world.
This week, I sought to challenge GQ’s ranking and hit the streets in search of Vancourites that exhibit a great sense of west coast style.
Among my favorites is the use of blazers, which is a great transitional item from summer to fall. Hint: accents on blazers such as a satin fabric or faux leather collar and pockets are on trend for fall.
Off shoulder shirts are high on my must haves in the closet. Off shoulder sweaters that are longer in length can be pulled up and paired with leggings or pulled down with a simple belt synching the waist as a sweater dress.
For accessories, I am having a love affair with pearls. I find that it exudes a simple elegance that is understated.
I find that the way we dress reflects who we are and how we feel about ourselves. You don’t have to be uncomfortable to be stylish or lazy to be laid back. Check out these Vancouverites I found with great style.
