Charlotte Jenkins is a buyer for Toronto retailer Gotstyle and she strategically organizes her wardrobe so she can get dressed with less stress. “Everything in my closet I can wear right now. This means doing a seasonal flip four times a year, but that’s worth knowing that every morning I can get dressed in minutes.” We asked her to show us what she wears for work, play and weekend.
We’re so lucky we don’t have to run ourselves ragged spotting trends on the runways or on the street. We’ve seen the best must-haves in the closets of our real…
Every year I research sunscreens (especially new ones), read customer reviews, quiz all my beauty peeps about which ones they love, and then head out to the store after I’ve made my final choices (there’s never just one, but more on that later).

It’s late at night and we can’t sleep so we hunted down the perfect bags to dress-up life’s random moments. Whether you need to add some chutzpah to your office tweeds or something chic and understated that can transition from a coffee meeting to the playground, we’ve found your it-bag.
There’s something to be said about finding that perfect, cozy—and let’s not forget, stylish— sweater. You know: the one that works with jeans, wide-leg pants and an office-worthy knee-length skirt. The one you turn to to give you style direction/inspiration. The one you want to wear almost every day but can’t because you know people would start to notice. The one you consider buying in different colours to trick those same people that you’re wearing something completely different. You get the idea.

Before you scoff/shriek/roll-your-eyes at wearing a skirt in winter, that may be because you don’t have the right one. While it’s natural to want to stay warm during the cold months and opt for a go-to pant, why not mix it up this season and usher in a winter skirt, especially when they’re so darn pretty.
We’ve all been there: Our inboxes slowly become inundated with celebratory invites—an after-work party here, a neighbour’s festive pot-luck there—and before you know it, you’re standing at home in your underwear, having pulled apart your closet looking for that one sparkly top that can turn your 9-to-5 uniform into a holiday ensemble. Here’s our latest style file to the rescue.
I know a lot of women feel like they can’t wear a red lip. They say it’s too bold; it’s too bright; my lips are too thin, I don’t wear red….I’ve heard it all. But trust me on this. Swapping your basic red for a deeper shade is a game-changer.
