COLD WEATHER

Red, orange and yellow leafs have taken over Montreal. Fall is here & it’s time to bundle up! Wool is great for fall, especially when it starts getting really cool and a leather jacket just won’t do. This season, all colors have the green light, so if you like pop of colors, it’s definitely choice galore! However, the only thing is wool coats are usually pricey; therefore you’re better off choosing a neutral color that can easily translate from one year to another. That’s why I chose this belted heather grey coat from Zara last fall. I love the color…

LEOPARD PRINT

Animal print – from tigers, to leopard to snake skin prints – hot, hot, hot! Pair a leopard shirt with black pants, a leather jacket & a pair of heels and you are ready for drinks girls. The emerald earrings add a pop of color to pull the outfit together. This Zara shirt is also very versatile; it could be worn with pants as well as a skirt. Also, as you can see I paired this with a leather jacket I have already shown you before. The key to a perfect wardrobe is buying pieces that you can mix &…

LBD

Indeed, every woman needs a Little Black Dress! In this post, I have decided to show you a conservative, office appropriate dress. It’s simple, long-sleeved and belted for a waist definition. What’s great about this dress is that it can be worn in cold weather and as we all know, Montreal is famous for its infamous winters – just add stockings.  Although I have paired it with cage sandals, you can wear it with booties or boots as well. Throwing on a classic trench gives it a polished look. I strongly believe that every career woman should have a trench coat. Especially if you work…

COBALT

One of fall’s trendiest colors is cobalt, and it’s one of my favorite colors. I think it looks good on any skin tone & it just simply screams “chic”! I love this cobalt bandage dress. I bought it last year during the summer, since cobalt was big in that season too. This is a great example of a garment that is timeless & that you can re-wear multiple times. Cobalt blouses and pants also look amazing, so pick whichever strikes your fancy ladies :) Dress – Dynamite Sandals – Lulu’s Clutch – Express Earrings & Bracelet – Swarovski

There are tons of places depending on your budget. Dollarama has lots of various masks and costume accessories for a buck. There are also lots of Halloween specialty stores across the city that open just for this…

PLAID & LEATHER

Two of this season’s hottest trends are plaid and leather. A plaid shirt is a must have this fall, and it can be found pretty much at any store. I got mine at Urban Planet, but you can find a similar one at Garage, Mango, Zara, H&M or Guess. I have a plaid shirt in multiple colors: red, green & blue – I’ll show them to you throughout the posts. Whats really cool about plaid is that it can be dressed up with a leather skirt and heels or dressed down like I did here with grey distressed jeans. I…

Skulls

Hi chix! I am really excited to present you with this very first post on the Working Chix website! My friend was kind enough to make room in his studio for my first fashionista shoot in order for me to be able to show you some of this fall’s hottest trends. In my next few posts, I’ll talk to you ladies about all of this fall’s gems, but I wanted to start off with this fun look that can be worn to work – if you work in a casual office, or just to hang out with the girlies. Prints…
