I'm The Only Person In My Asian Family Who Wants To Be Tan

Madelyn Chung | August 30, 2016 | Canada Style
My aunts on my father's side would always tell me, "Oh you're so pale! You're so beautiful!" When I asked my mom why they said that, she explained to me that pale skin equated to beauty because darker skin, to them, meant that you were "poor, working in the fields."

These Olympic Athletes Deserve Gold For Their Style Game

VULKAN Magazine | August 25, 2016 | Canada Style
These Olympic athletes certainly are finely-tuned machines, but that doesn't mean they don't put considerable thought and effort into how they present themselves outside of the games, as well! So, without further ado, here are 10 of the most stylish male athletes from the Rio 2016 Olympics.

Canada Needs A Fashion Council To Save The Industry

Naira Fragoso da Costa | August 25, 2016 | Canada Style
In 2013, Montreal said goodbye to its fashion week. In 2014, Ottawa did the same, and now a little over a month ago, Toronto has officially followed suit. How much longer are we going to wait for Vancouver to shut down their respective fashion week? But more importantly, how much longer are we going to allow our Canadian fashion industry to continue collapsing?

Growing Up As A Brown Girl, I Was Used To Being Called 'Fat'

Arti Patel | August 19, 2016 | Canada Style
In seventh grade, I took a family trip to India and my weight was the hot topic. Family members I hadn't seen in years commented on how "fat" I had become; and when I walked into stores to buy sarees or lenghas, store owners told my mom it wouldn't look good on me or fit. It was blunt, but it was normal.

A bunch of rad actresses tweeted breastfeeding pictures we've taken on set, at auditions, at rehearsal or at home with the aim of taking nursing out of the shadows and promoting our ongoing efforts to increase awareness and prompt actual change within our industry.

I'm Not An Awful Person For Wondering About Renee Zellweger's Face

Elizabeth Bromstein | August 10, 2016 | Canada Living
Chastising people for natural curiosity while hauling out the same old tired observations about cultural sexism is, in my opinion, not useful. It's harmful. It adds nothing new to the conversation. And this conversation needs something new. You can do better.

The Complete Guide To Jeans And What To Wear With Them

Dessy Danishwar | August 5, 2016 | Canada Style
If there's one thing that defines female casual style, it's our love for denim. Since exploding on the style scene as far back as 1873 (by a fellow you might've heard of, Mr. Levi Strauss), the"'blue jean" has become the go-to-for-almost-every-occasion item in our closets. It's one fashion item that we.all.have.

A Leading Cause Of Hair Loss Is, Well, You

Alan J. Bauman | August 2, 2016 | Canada Living
Genetics are often to blame for hair loss, and rightfully so, at least in many cases. But while genetics are the most common cause of hair loss in both men and women, for some, hair loss can be caused by a variety of other reasons.

Meet The Backstage Insiders Who Make Fashion Shows Reality

Aimée Wice | July 29, 2016 | Canada Style
There is so much more to a show than what the immediate eye can see; the runway, the collection, the front row fixtures... what about the invisible teams that make it all come together? From London Fashion Week, to Men's Fashion Week in Milan, to Miami's sizzling Swim Week, I examine the symbiotic relationship between the front and back, and everything in between.

Ladies, It's Time To Make Comfortable Bras Sexy

Inessa Radostin | July 29, 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.

Sophie Grégoire Trudeau Does No Wrong Accepting Designer Gifts

Nicholas Mizera | July 27, 2016 | Canada Style
A citizen's advocacy group has recently called Sophie Grégoire Trudeau out for accepting gifts and loans of clothing from Canadian fashion labels, deeming her "for sale" for daring to wear support for our country's industry on her sleeve. I can see how gifts and loans can make for some bad optics, even if the role of prime minister's wife has little real political oomph behind it. However, in a world where few powerful individuals direct their influence toward social good like Grégoire Trudeau does, Democracy Watch's threadbare argument seems to be more about populist-pleasing celebrity shaming than hypothetical conflicts of interests.

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.
