Huffington Post Canada: Our Style Channel Turns 1


What a year it's been!

It seems like yesterday that we, the team behind The Huffington Post Canada Style, separated from our sister site HuffPost Canada Living to become a stand-alone destination for all things fun and fabulous in fashion, beauty, home decor and entertaining.

One year later, we're busier than ever keeping you, our dear readers, up-to-date on the latest style news and trends from across Canada — be it Kate Middleton and Prince William expecting their first baby to offering advice on what to wear each season.

We've had a ton of fun interacting with you on Facebook and Twitter, and have had a blast filling our feeds with inspirational images and stories that'll help you embrace the most stylish sides of life.

Today, December 8, on our one-year anniversary, we'd like to thank all of you for your support. Our gift to you? A short and sweet compilation of our top performing posts from the past year.
