So Long, Sweet Summer. Hello, Sweet Sweater

So Long, Sweet Summer. Hello, Sweet Sweater

Sweet summer sixteen has come to an end as we fall into autumn fashion and prep ourselves with a warmer wardrobe. How would you describe your fall style? No matter the look you’re going for, there is nothing like the seasonal staple of a cozy sweater. Fitted, over-sized, knit, or hooded, there are several ways to play up your sweater game. 

 

PRINTS

 

Prints on a sweater are a fantastic way to add a more playful vibe to your warm aesthetic. Whether you’re into little bears or little bows, a printed pattern really adds a personal touch to how you wear your coziest sleeves. 

 

Ariana Grande serves us some sass in her adorable bear printed sweater. Her style shows us that fashion is an excellent way to express your personality. 

Shop a similar look at JoycesCloset.ca with our bow patterned black and white sweater by Ya Los Angeles (https://www.joycescloset.ca/collections/sweater-cardigan/products/ya-los-angeles-black-white-bow-sweater). With the perfect balance of girlie and cozy, you can dress this up with a pair of patent pumps and skinny jeans or dress it down with ripped boyfriend jeans and slip-on sneakers. 

 

 

TEXTURE

 

One feature that a great fall sweater must have: coziness! Up your cozy texture game in an oversized knit sweater jacket like Rachel Bilson seen here with a maxi dress and jacket combo. A sweater that serves as a practical, yet decorative piece to your wardrobe is always essential. Large knits with fun woven patterns are a great way to add details to your autumn outfit. 

 

 

Shop a similar look to Rachel’s at JoycesCloset.ca! Our vintage Cowichan sweater jacket (https://www.joycescloset.ca/collections/sweater-cardigan/products/vintage-cowichan-oversized-knit-sweater-jacket) will be the perfect warm addition to your warmer wardrobe. With neutral hues and intricate woven patterns, this piece can be worn over your favorite button up and skinny jeans with a pair of riding boots. 

OVERSIZED

Supermodel Gigi Hadid makes the oversized turtleneck trend look like a million bucks. Practical yet polished, the turtleneck is a structural feature that shouldn’t be overlooked this season. 

 

Get ready like Gigi in our tan oversized turtleneck sweater from Top Shop (https://www.joycescloset.ca/collections/sweater-cardigan/products/topshop-tan-turtle-neck-sweater). This look is an essential piece to looking effortlessly put together. Rock this look by pairing it with a printed circle scarf or a great statement necklace.

 

Whether it’s a fantastic print, a fabulous texture, or just the perfect oversized size, a sweater can stylishly complete any wardrobe this season. Fall into fashion and shop these sweet sweaters at JoycesCloset.ca

Ted Baker London Expands Fashion Brand to Calgary

Ted Baker London Expands Fashion Brand to Calgary

Ted Baker’s media opening in Chinook mall had us feeling all the heart eyes. From cowboy boot shaped cocktail glasses to goodie bags galore accompanied by the acoustic sounds of Michael Bernard Fitzgerald, Ted Baker Calgary opened up like a blooming flower in a dressing room.

(pictured above: one of Ted Baker’s beautiful dressing rooms, adorned with scented fabric flowers!)
(pictured above: local musician Michael Bernard Fitzgerald provides a soundtrack to the shopping experience)
With fashionable roots that began in Glasgow and eventually spread out all over the United Kingdom, British luxury clothing retail company Ted Baker is now accessible through a gorgeous new storefront in our very own Calgary. Joyce’s Closet was in attendance to witness the new arrivals of streamlined silhouettes, playful patterns, and unique details. 
 
Adrian Reynolds, a representative for Faulhaber Communications based in Toronto, believes Ted Baker London brings forth a spectacular attention to detail - a quality that sets the brand apart from others. “Not one piece is plain like your simple black shirt,” Reynolds said. “You’re going to notice the rose gold zipper in the back, or the two large bows that complete the look.” With an irreverent sense of humor, Ted Baker’s quirky details are evident in the different patterns and color schemes to the design of the label tags. “The tags will say something quaint or funny, like ‘Ted made this one just for you.’ It’s amazing to see the thought and care put into each individual piece".
(pictured above: fellow fashionista Adrian Reynolds serves us her best fab flower child pose)
As the first location that has expanded to Western Canada, Ted Baker London is ready to set the fashion scene for fall. Check out Ted Baker Calgary now open in Chinook Mall.

Joyce’s Closet Festival Style

Weekend Two of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival means more music, more art, and more fashion. The double weekend event in Indio, California is known for having the trendiest and most fashionable concert guests, from Vanessa Hudgens to Taylor Swift. But what makes Coachella so ethereal and iconic when it comes to fashion? Is it the lace maxi dresses? The gladiator sandals? The paisley kimonos? The flower crowns? And more importantly, where can I buy them? 
The answer for those queries remain within the shelves and racks of Joyce’s Closet! From floral cut-offs to fringe details, Joyce’s Closet is prepared for every music festival imaginable. Check out some looks curated for that ideal Music Festival #OOTD:
Denim on denim is never a fashion faux pas at Coachella. This girlie spin on a rugged look is ready to rock with floral patterned boyfriend denim cut-offs by Current Elliot ($45) and a lightweight denim button-up by Wilfred ($45). Switch it up when the weather heats up! Wear a sheer camisole underneath and tie the button-up around your waist. Keep it simple yet rustic chic with almond toed booties (perfect for walking and dancing!) and top it off with a fringe leather purse to keep all your concert essentials. 
It’s cut-off season! A pair of authentic, soft, and vintage denim cut-offs is essential to every girl’s closet this season. You can dress them up or down, and Joyce’s Closet has you covered whichever way you choose. For this festival layout we paired Levi’s denim cut-off shorts ($55) with Frye boots ($350), a suede fringe handbag, and a sheer blush Juicy Couture top with bronze sequin detail ($35). Equal parts feminine and feisty, a pair of frayed Levi’s and a sheer top can make it all the way to the front of Ellie Goulding’s Coachella stage. 
With such a diverse and eclectic audience, it is no wonder festivals like Coachella have a large spectrum of fashion choices. From Kylie Jenner’s knee-high gladiator sandals to Taylor Swift’s use of the choker with her squad, no trend was turned away. That’s why this look, featuring a more polished and mod spin, is just as applicable as a flower crown and crochet halter top combo. A cropped sleeveless peach top by MissGuided ($18),taupe oxfords by DV Dolce Vita ($38),  and a quilted orange Rebecca Minkoff bag ($125) is all set for DJ Mustard’s set.
 
If comfort is what you’re looking for, this look is easy to put together and looks effortlessly classy. Pair a lightweight tank dress, like our Wilfred Yasmin cut-out dress ($30), with a pair of Lacoste leather moccasin loafers ($48), Dooney & Burke forest green and tan cross body purse ($79) and a burgundy statement hat. This festival look makes chic look simple yet elegant. 
With so many inspiring artists encouraging individuality and artful expression to their audiences, Coachella has been a seamless thread of style for fashionistas worldwide. Which look would you rock for your upcoming outdoor music festival? Check out JoycesCloset.ca for more fashion inspiration and shop online!
