Nikki Gill is a Ryerson Journalism grad, with an obsession for all things fashion and style. As a born and bred Toronto gal, Nikki worked for ChickAdvisor.com, an online fashion and lifestyle magazine, before journeying off to the UK to work in the fashion department of a London daily newspaper, the Daily Express. She's also had the opportunity to interview Canadian fashion icons, Harry Rosen and Jeanne Beker. Rarely caught without a cup of tea in her hand, Nikki can usually be found either painting her nails or daydreaming about shoes.
From childhood, we are taught that rain is unpleasant. And it definitely puts many people in a foul mood. But let's backtrack and stop all the hating for one second - rain also gives us the opportunity to pull out a fashion accessory we can't use everyday... the umbrella!
Once all the fashion weeks wrap up around the world, I love perusing all the new trends. But wait a second, let's be financially responsible for a second. Before we start swiping those credit cards and making our bank accounts ache, we should keep in mind that we still have quite a few viable outfits from last year. So why not recycle?

The sneaker wedge! A sneaker with a heel, a complete oxymoron. And now here we are, about a decade later, and they're back! I can't get on board with sneaker wedges. It's just not cute. I would love to tell you that we will be rid of it for good... but we'll have to leave that one up to the fashion gods.

We all know that April showers bring May flowers, and my absolute favourite spring trend -- floral prints! Floral hit the scene a couple of years ago and now it's everywhere. As soon as the temperatures rise and the winter boots disappear, those colourful flowers find their way into our outfits.
