It’s Juno’s weekend and everyone is planning their weekend music lineup, and hopefully their wardrobe. We Canucks love to show our Juno pride but we want to suggest that this weekend we evolve our Canadiana for a new, modern look. The Canadian Tuxedo We’re not going fishing people, update your denim-on-denim-on-denim for coloured jeans, mismatched washes and one of this spring’s hottest looks – lightweight denim. And always break it up with accessories. Plaid This one is actually pretty on-trend but it is a style that has become more hipster
In the last few weeks there has been a lot of buzz over 90s throwbacks. There were rumours about a Friends reunions (albeit disappointing), the X-Files were re-opened and people have been binging on Fuller House. But where are the fashion greats?
