It's Finally Men's Turn To Savour 'Feminine' Silk, Satin And Lace

Leah Morrigan | December 8, 2016 | Canada Style
True self-expression must have freedom without gendered boundaries. To allow men true freedom, freedom of their senses, we must loosen the knots of gender expression through clothing and fabric and allow men to be who they naturally are.

Life Lessons From Wearing The Same Little Black Dress For 30 Days

Megan Radford | November 30, 2016 | Canada Style
This fall, I decided to challenge myself. I set out to wear one black dress the whole month of November, and, in the process, create awareness about how important having the right clothes for inclement weather truly is. Here are five things I've learned from this experiment.

How To Downsize Your Wardrobe Without Downsizing Your Space

Barbara Aleks Hecht | November 30, 2016 | Canada Style
When I downsized into my condo and found myself with one garment rack and one dresser to store my clothing, I realized that some things would have to go. I also realized that I really didn't wear most of my clothes. I just kept cycling through my favorites. I've heard it said that we typically wear 20% of our clothing 80% of the time. So why bother hanging on to one-off's, unworn, or unloved pieces that take up valuable storage space?

Ladies, It's Time To Make Comfortable Bras Sexy

Inessa Radostin | November 28, 2016 | Canada Style
Why are most lingerie lines toggling between the comfort and the sexy side, but never mending the two looks? It seems that as much as we would like to show our power and eminent equality in every other aspect of life, when it comes to our bosoms, we still put slinky and attractive into the same category.

How To Buy A Great Suit In 3 Easy Steps

Andrea Traynor | November 23, 2016 | Canada Style
There's so much that goes into a bespoke suit -- from the subtleties of a man's posture to the numerous fittings before the suit is even finished -- that it inevitably comes with a much higher price tag; you'd be hard-pressed to find a proper bespoke suit for less than $2,000. They're also made by the tailor (or within his small team) and not shipped off to a factory or overseas, adding to the premium pricing.

How To Relocate Like A Fashion Girl

Sara Graham | November 22, 2016 | Canada Style
What to do when you've got hundreds of pairs of shoes, enough clothes to dress a small army, and your career demands that you move, oh on average, about every three years? And not just to another city, but an entirely foreign country.

How To Add Colour To Your Fall Wardrobe

Caroline Topperman | November 18, 2016 | Canada Style
The leaves have been the most brilliant shades of scarlet and gold, but now many of them are lifeless and limp, lying in puddles on the street. There are dazzling moments filled with colour and sunshine and in the next instant, everything is grey. Who can keep up? Maybe it's time that we create our own sunshine.

The Long And Short Of Hair Extensions

Jacki Andre | November 18, 2016 | Canada Style
My own hair is short and curly. I haven't had hair past my shoulders for about 20 years. The idea of having Disney princess hair was enchanting but I knew little about the process. How exactly are the extensions attached? How long does it take? How much does it cost? How long do extensions last? Time to do my research!

Advertisers, Let's Portray Pregnant Women Accurately

Angie Campanelli | November 14, 2016 | Canada Style
Why should a double zero model get to strap on a baby-bump, as though it's a mere accessory like shoes or bracelets, and pose in a maternity clothing campaign?

How To Make An Old Coat New Again

Caroline Topperman | November 8, 2016 | Canada Style
I tend to spend a little more on a great coat, which I treat as an investment piece. The only glitch in this plan is that after a couple of years, I might get bored of pulling out the same old coat time after time. So, how do you make an old coat new again?

Top Tips For Winter Skincare

Our skin gets parched when the temperature starts to cool down, and as we spend more time in centrally heated air and wearing woolen clothing.

Meghan Markle Should Dump Prince Harry

Rachel Décoste | November 4, 2016 | Canada Living
There's nothing like a black girlfriend to cause racism to rear up its ugly head. It isn't surprising that Brits would recoil at the hint of racial impurity infiltrating their blue bloodlines. Cultivating whiteness is, after all, their family business. What's unforgivable is Prince Harry's silence.

Last Minute Halloween Costumes For Lazy-Ass People

Heather Magee | October 31, 2016 | Canada Style
As my tickle trunk of costumes has grown over the years, my desire to be creative has dwindled. Why spend a hundred bucks or more on a costume that will undoubtedly end up wrecked and reeking of booze by the end of the night?
