What to Wear Wednesday – SPRINGing in the Rain

What to Wear Wednesday - SPRINGing in the Rain

What to Wear Wednesday – SPRINGing in the Rain by freshcollective featuring missoni

Okay, so it’s raining… a lot, but in an effort to play devil’s advocate, I decided to have fun creating a rainy-day set for today’s WTWW post.

I based today’s set around one of our great Soia & Kyo spring jackets. this stylish jacket creates a great silhouette while it’s fashionable hood (yes, that’s possible) keeps your ‘do safe from the drizzle!

Underneath, throw on your favourite pair of jeans and one of our brand new Yasmine Louis tops – I LOVE the slouchy comfy long-sleeved ones! I’d rock it off one shoulder for a casual cool look. Finish it off with your umbrella and give a pair of your fall boots (Miz Mooz pictured) another trip around town!

Topping it Off: Spring Jackets to Finish Your Look

High of 14 degrees today? I’ll take it!
Spring has arrived at last, and with it a chance to wear all those cute outfits you’ve been pining for through the cold winter (and early spring) months!

The finishing touch of any great spring outfit is a fabulous jacket. Adding a stylish topper can be the perfect finishing touch! At Fresh Collective we have a love affair with Soia & Kyo – a wonderful (and proudly Canadian) line of outerwear. Their 2013 Spring collection is  structured, simple and creates a great silhouette. Check out the gorgeous styles we carry below:

Since it’s debut in 2004, Soia & Kyo has made a name for itself thanks to its fabulous fit, intricate detailing and unique styling: oversized buttons, asymmetric and structured collars, wide belts and contrast trims that create looks which are young and trendy with an urban sensibility and retro twist.

Paper People aims for those versatile items that express the wearer yet are appropriate for any occasion. Customers appreciate the one of a kind nature of the reclaimed pieces as well as the eclectic tonal, textural and print variations within each garment.  Environmentally conscious pieces from new textiles often incorporate contrast from reclaimed materials or screen printed accents adding a touch of the unique, handmade aesthetic.
