I have no idea what I will be doing on New Year's Eve, but I am excited for the new style trends for 2017. There is going to be a lot of new looks for both men and women. My goal for 2017, is to try a few new looks and get out of my comfort zone.

Canada is synonymous with red. This colour evokes a warm nostalgic feeling and works for everyone! Add to this some golden oak, winter white, woodrose, cabernet, snowy ice, grizzly brown and celestial blue and you have the perfect mix of colours that you can dress in and it also paints the perfect Canadian landscape!

There are going to be a lot of new, exciting, innovative style trends for both guys and women in 2017! Recently, I was lucky enough to speak with two leading designers from Vancouver - Reuben and Lévi Uwi of U.T.F.L. (Uwi Twins Fashion Label). Their style and clothes are as unique as their story.

I love fall fashion and shopping online. The time I save shopping can be spent outdoors or doing fun things, like spending good times with friends and loved ones. Shopping online means you have endless options at your fingertips, so you can really find some fashion gems if you think beyond what you're currently seeing in store windows.
TFW has indisputably been the leading platform in Canada for showcasing domestic talent, so it's definitely a setback for the Canadian fashion industry as a whole. Personally, TFW has been heavily influential in my brand development and I have so many fond memories of attending and exhibiting.

If it seems like the fashion world is completely turned upside down right now, that's because it is -- there is debate and divide amongst the industry's leaders regarding how to continue to present and sell collections to both buyers and consumers alike.

For some of us, denim is a lifestyle choice. Sporting our prized jeans during work and play, it's only natural that maintaining our baby blues is part of life's daily routine. Bordering on an obsession similar to that of wine aficionados, 'denimheads' also thrive on a high that comes from seeking, enjoying and preserving special washes, cuts, vintages and grades of denim. There's just one problem: luxury denim is notoriously expensive. And now, there's a solution.

I love spring! The colours are brighter and the layers are lighter. There are so many new styles and trends out this season. Pastels are big, men's watches are on-point and you can never go wrong with a nude shoe.
I love watches. They look elegant on both men and women. Having a watch on your wrist, says that you could use your phone to tell the time, but you are more interested in the details and creativity with how you express your style.

One of the biggest trends is the stacking trend, you can wear bangles to create a whirl of colour, or worn individually to add a touch of sparkle to any outfit.

As a lifestyle blogger and journalist, I have a bag (or two) slung over my shoulder, filled with healthy snacks, pens, laptop, camera, lenses and tripod. The bag is spilling out of the top, and quite often heavier than I am.
Which colours are on trend? Deep, rich shades of berry, evergreen, cobalt and silver and gold (of course) add luxe to even the easiest of pieces.These colours look fresh and unexpected when paired back to something lighter and brighter.
