Happy Summer Fashion Friends!
As we all get used to our new normal and get ready for a different summer on the island...we thought we would focus this month's blog on the staycation summer. Whether you are staying at home, doing day trips on the island, heading to the cabin or going camping (truthfully, we glamp not camp 😉) to your favourite spot...we have the perfect additions to your summer wardrobe. We have highlighted pieces from five, fashionable, fun brands: Gilmour, Chloë Angus, Shannon Passero, Jag, and Tribal to get you started.
For all you who are already in love with Vancouver's Gilmour, you know how wonderful their bamboo clothing is to wear. Bamboo is cool like cotton and linen, which makes it a great summer fabric. Their hoodie is a best seller for us and comes in a variety of colours and can be worn with jeans, shorts or leggings. Perfect for those summer nights that are a bit cool. The bamboo leggings are available in a variety of colours and two lengths: full and crop. They are a go to piece for any casual outfit and the crop also works well under dresses. Support one of our favourite local companies by choosing bamboo clothing from Gilmour.
When you think casual, you don't always think of Vancouver designer, Chloë Angus. She is known for her more elegant and formal indigenous printed clothing, but she also makes some must-have casual pieces. The perfect tank shirt is a favourite of ours that can be worn with jeans or leggings. Her fleece leggings...if you don't have a pair...you are missing out! The leggings were our first introduction to Chloë, recommended by our fashion friend Janet N! We have a huge selection of sizes and colours for you to be campfire ready! Made and designed in Vancouver!
Toronto's Shannon Passero offers stylish pieces to have you summer staycation ready. The Jessica top is something that is worn by all of us, and it has been so popular, we just had to order more! The fabric is soft and the style can be very casual with a pair of shorts or dressed up with jeans and dressy sandals. The Loren top is another favourite from Shannon, a short sleeve top with a deep v neck. We have many more great tops from Shannon, available in different colours and sleeve lengths.
Jeans...the go to summer staycation staple! Jag is one of our favs and the new Reese jean has been flying out. Their light colour and slight flair have made it a favourite. For those of you wanting a crop coloured jean for summer...the Serena crop is your must have! It can be dressed up or down for any occasion. Let us help you find your perfect Jag jeans to be fashion fabulous this summer.
Tribal is one of our most popular brands in the store during any season. They have many great pieces that would be a wonderful addition to your staycation wardrobe. Their summer dresses are versatile and can be worn casually with sneakers or dress them up with a pair of wedged sandals for the evening. Their classic jean jacket is a wardrobe essential for any season. This shorter dark denim jacket from Tribal can be worn casually with tank and capris or over any summer dress.
Although Summer 2020 may be different and more casual...it can still be great and fashion fabulous! We all like to feel and look fashionable, whether it is at home or out with our small social circle. Let us help you find the perfect pieces for your summer. We look forward to seeing you and hearing about your staycation plans.
