Fall 2012 Fashion Trends

21 Aug

The summer is coming to an end and Fall 2012 is just around the corner. It is always sad to see the summer go, but we’re so excited to start rocking Fall fashion! Fashion Week has come to an end, but these amazing fashion shows have left us loving the official trendiest colors and styles for Fall 2012! With unexpected mixes of darks, brights and neutrals, we’re completely gaga over everything that Fall 2012 has to offer!

1. Oxblood

We’re so excited to see deep hues decorate the Fall 2012 landscape! Call it what you want – maroon, burgundy, oxblood – we’ve gone absolutely gaga for all shades of red! These deep wine hues are the new black and we can’t wait to see these fantastic colours make a huge statement this season!



Oxblood is a gorgeous rich and earthy colour, so it’s perfect for flattering a variety of skin tones! Pair an oxblood coloured sweater or blazer with J Brand’s 620 Mid-rise skinnies in Hewson! It’s the ultimate casual chic look! The beautiful black wash of these jeans are ultra versatile, ensuring that you’ll be wearing this pair all season long! The power stretch denim contours perfectly to your body, creating a flattering silhouette for any occasion! Whether strolling around town or heading to work, these jeans are a total closet staple!

2. Military Style

It’s back and classier than ever before! Military-inspired ensembles marched down the catwalk at New York Fashion Week. From Victoria Beckham, Tommy Hilfiger to Alexander McQueen, army greens and uniform details are must-haves for Fall 2012!  We love the way these ensembles kept their feminine silhouettes, however military accents were added, which included high collars, oversized pockets and glossy gold buttons!

Designers have taken the classic military look to a whole new level! We love pairing our military inspired clothing with our J Brand 630 Mid-Rise Super Skinny Jeans in Palisade! These jeans will hug your curves in all the right places! These ultra soft skinnies look and feel so comfortable and sexy, you’ll never want to take them off! Wear these babies everyday with military wear! Shop these jeans now at www.pavlyn.ca!

3. Lace

During the summer season, lace was bold and bright! Come fall, lace will continue to be popular, however it will take a dramatic turn in color and style. Darker embroidered lace will be used with the occasional pop of color. We love lace because it’s always the perfect blend of sweet and sexy! The beauty of lace is that it can be worn to the office and then worn for a night out on the town!

We absolutely love this For Love & Lemons Scarlet dress. This mini dress is a real beauty with crafted floral lace, long sleeves and crochet trim and the cuffs and hem. Pair this LBD with sky-high black pumps and a statement ring or match the dress with a pair of nude pumps for an understated look! Shop this perfect Fall dress now at www.pavlyn.ca!

We’re loving all of the Fall fashion trends, there so exciting! We can’t wait to see everyone rocking their stylish new ensembles!

Outfit Inspiration: Animal Prints

26 Apr

Who said you can’t wear leopard print to work?

I would like to take it upon myself to try to dispel the rule that it’s not appropriate, once and for all! I am not just favouring my leopard print stuff because I am ga-ga for animal prints, I say this, because I genuinely think that animal prints have become the new black and are a total staple to any girl’s wardrobe. Ladies, we should embrace this trend with open arms …or should I say wallets?… and start accumulating animal print merch like its nobody’s business!

There is something chic about animal prints. Adding a touch of patterns creates a certain fierceness and certainly goes a long way if you’re trying to look on-trend. Obviously, you don’t want to overdo it with animal prints by wearing too much of them or something tight, like a leopard dress – should probably save that one for the clubs  ;)

I can proudly say that, at this point, my animal print collection consists of a leopard belt, zebra and leopard print scarves and leopard peep toe pumps!  I wear these items all the time and am always on the prowl for the more perfectly printed wild goodies. Today, I made what would have been a pretty basic office outfit look that much more fun and trendy with my leopard scarf. I like to tie the ends and wrap it around like an infinity scarf and wear it with my leather motorcycle jacket…the result – a perfectly professional office look that is both elegant and stylish. Add red lips and you’re ready for after work drinks with your girls!

Office Space: Classic Everyday Work Outfit

5 Apr

Today, I had one of those days when I had a really hard time deciding what to wear to work! I don’t know about you, but this happens to me sometimes when I wake up (*late) and I stand before my closet staring at the magnitude of clothes with my sleepy eyes…completely confused and overwhelmed! I don’t know why I have such a hard time…maybe its the pressure of the whole situation or the fact that I clearly didn’t get enough sleep! I don’t normally have a difficulty dressing myself…BUT when it comes to crunch time, like when its most important to quickly pick what to wear and run out the door, I literally feel like a deer caught in the headlights!

This is why I’ve decided to have a couple of emergency office outfits ready to go!  After all, a girl should be prepared for days like this. It saves so much time when you’re running late, or when you’re just lazy and want to sleep in instead of spending time picking an outfit! Given that most of us work in an office environment, like me, one has to consider the fact that we have to use some discretion in our clothing choices. This is why I always opt for the classic looks when it comes to picking a quick outfit for work.

Office outfit with Club Monaco pinstripe dress shirt and navy dress pants

Voila! This is the look I chose for myself today, as I was running late! To make it look a little less corporate, I accessorized with some big glasses, pearl earrings, oversized watch, and some bracelets.  Plus, I braided my hair to side for a sweetheart, school girl feel.

I think one can never go wrong with a pin-stripe dress shirt, sleek tailored dress pants, and patent black pumps! This gives a perfect combination of a clean cut look with a slightly feminine twist. Its a total power combo that makes you look so pulled together and professional, no one will ever know you’ve overslept!

What to wear to the office

My outfit: Club Monaco Pinstripe Two tone Dress shirt,  Zara Woman Navy Blue tailored Dress Pants, BCBG Generation Black Patent Leather Pumps, Michael Kors Black Leather Bag, Marc Jacobs Glasses

I hope you like my basic office look and it helps you on those difficult mornings when you just don’t know what to wear to work :)
