Top 5 Pieces: Poupette St Barth’s

With the Holidays just around the corner and Vancouver’s dismal Tim Burton-esque weather, it feels somewhat unnatural to be discussing swim and resort wear. Nonetheless, with designers releasing their Spring/Summer and Resort collections, it is clear that the season ahead will be one of vibrant pattern, vivacious colour, unconventional silhouettes, and an overall air of whimsy. So whether one is escaping winter by spending the holidays in Barbados (we are jealous) or is simply seeking summertime wardrobe, nothing warms one up quite as well as perusing through collections of beach and resort apparel.

 

Nothing embodies the happy-go-lucky spirit of the season more than Poupette & Saint Barth’s newest collections, exotically named Aruba, Samoa, and Eden, Moorea and Belize. Each collection differs in mood and character, and yet remains true to the brand’s relaxed and low-key aesthetic.

Spring Transition : Vancouver style

Vancouver##Q##s transition from Spring to summer is anything but predictable, especially this year. With May having broken records for low temperatures and rain fall one must know how to dress to survive and stay comfortable. Growing up with an outdoorsy family I was always told that layering was key to being prepared as well as comfortable. Vancouver is mild in this transition period so there a two ways to style your outfit to ensure you remain stylish, warm and dry.

 

For the cold sensitive types

So for those are always cold and always complaining about it well we will take care of you first so you don##Q##t complain to us here at the site.

Sparkle and Shine

Although not entirely weather appropriate, this look lightens the dismal mood that comes with cloudy skies.  It’s casual, with a touch of sparkle. Different fabrics and textures are played up by the varying separates. This style offers a sense of ease;  it’s so simple and put-together.

The look has a laid-back air, the flat ankle boots keeping it relaxed.  The boots and the scarf in shades of grey are sought-after basics for the wanting wardrobe.  The scarf, a cozy accessory, is simple and stylish.

Salt of the Earth

Winter is not the same across Canada. The coasts are soaked in rain while snow gathers over the prairies. But no matter where you are, it is most important that you keep warm. And if you can look cute while doing it, it’s just an added bonus. A huge difference from Vancouver’s grey, wet weather, central Canada is cold and white.

Grey Skies

Winter in Vancouver doesn’t always mean snow. In fact, it is more likely that the season will bring us excessive amounts of rain. But dreary weather says nothing about one’s ability to look stylish under grey skies. The most important thing is keeping warm. Nothing looks more ludicrous than bare legs and thin sweaters when facing the elements.
