5 Fashion Faux-Pas You Actually Shouldn't Avoid

Bernardo Cardoso | July 22, 2016 | Canada Style
A fashion faux-pas is what is considered a style blunder. It is something one must not do, in order to not deviate from the societal norm, and spare oneself embarrassment. So they say. Concepts of what's fashionable and what's not, are subjective and ever-changing.

Walk A (Milton) Mile In An Entrepreneur's Shoes

Stephen-Thomas Maciejowski | July 21, 2016 | Canada Style
The footwear is very high quality featuring Goodyear welting, allowing for the soles to be removed and replaced over the years, while also being incredibly weather resistant. The whole grain leathers are soft and supple. The interior lining is green, the colour of balance, harmony and (let's face it) money, which makes sense given that each style is inspired by an entrepreneur Milton and Brigitte admire.

Swift-Kardashian-West Feud A Circus Of Narcissism And Bullying

Marcia Sirota | July 19, 2016 | Canada Living
The problem for Ms. Swift is two-fold: she's a super-successful female in a world that is deeply ambivalent, at best, about female success, and also, she mines her life for her music, angering a lot of people in the process. If she happens to poke the wrong person, or dragon, they'll rain down fire upon her.

Jennifer Aniston's Blog Only Addresses The Tip Of The Iceberg

Renae Regehr | July 13, 2016 | Canada Living
While the focus on loosening the ironclad corset and giving breathing room for diverse bodies to be loved and appreciated is a big step in the right direction, something is still fundamentally missing in our well-intentioned conquest to develop a positive body image.

Embracing Grey Hair Opened My Eyes To A New Depth Of Beauty

Loreli Cockram | July 12, 2016 | Canada Living
Looking at my greying hair at least once a day, I stopped seeing it like I used to -- as a sign of defeat -- but more like acquiring a loyalty to my age. I started to accept the mantle of middle-aged maturity toward which this "crown" motivated me. It showed up mostly (surprisingly) in my relationships with other women.

New Designers Will Feel Loss Of Toronto Fashion Week

Christopher Bates | July 12, 2016 | Canada Style
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.

Government Support Could Have Saved Toronto Fashion Week

Ashlee Froese | July 7, 2016 | Canada Style
I speculate that Toronto Fashion Week was unable to secure a key sponsor, which significantly impacted its operating budget. It is a shame that it was unable to secure a new sponsor. Perhaps an alternative sponsor opportunity may come to fruition. Unfortunately, there is another type of funding that is not available.

Your Fave Makeup Could Be Harming The Environment

Emily Lyons | June 30, 2016 | Canada Style
As a teenager, I felt all giddy whenever I got new makeup -- I couldn't wait to try the newest cosmetic brands and make my friends a tad envious. Of course, I didn't know it then, but every time I washed the makeup off my face, I was participating in a vast system of global environmental pollution.

Should A Cosmetics Brand Be Expected To Play Politics?

Jenica Chuahiock | June 29, 2016 | Canada Style
It seems incredibly naïve to think that a profit-dependent, commercial venture is the final bastion of democratic values. Yet, in an age when companies are capitalizing on social responsibility, are brands unwittingly turning themselves into moral pedestals?

'Wear Pantyhose' And Other Dated Fashion Rules Our Moms Taught Us

Rhonda Scharf | June 24, 2016 | Canada Style
I think it's important that we don't cling to the rules our mothers taught us "just because that's the way it's always been done." If your legs look better with hose, wear hose. If you find that brown and black is not a good combination for your skin tone, then don't wear it. Don't be a slave to fashion rules -- old or new.

What To Do When You Don't Know How To Dress Yourself

Barbara Aleks Hecht | June 22, 2016 | Canada Style
When it comes to creating outfits, the key words here are layering and accessorizing. Many women feel that their outfits are incomplete because they don't take this final step. Think of it this way -- putting clothes on and being dressed is like a simple, plain cake. Layering and accessorizing are the icing and decorations. Sure the plain cake will do, but how much better will the fully iced and decorated one look?

This Summer, Let's Embrace Our Swimsuit Bodies As They Are

Amy Gibson | June 27, 2016 | Canada Style
This summer, don't compare yourself to the spray tanned, filtered, posed, air brushed celebrity pics on Instagram and in the media. In fact, don't compare yourself to anyone. Love your body, as it is now. As it looks now. Don't hide behind cover ups and over-sized T-shirts. Be proud of your body. Love your body, as it is now. As it looks now.

My Wild And Beautiful Curls Bring Out The Courage In Me

Nicole Abi-Najem | June 21, 2016 | Canada Style
There is this sort of metamorphosis that takes place after I just let the unhindered wildness in me be totally and utterly free. When my hair is curly, no one is any longer running their fingers through my hair from root to tip, telling me how it feels silky. Instead, I feel the weight and strength of the curls on me.

I Am A Fat, Gay Man - And I Finally Love My Body

Frank Colosimo | June 24, 2016 | Canada Living
I crushed on guys who were "out of my league." I saw others get attention while I was ignored or rejected. I felt bad about my body, which was mostly fat, with little or no visible muscle. My face was pretty and my mannerisms were soft, leaving me pretty low in the hierarchy. So I took action.
