When Lazy Met Helmut

When you saw our post yesterday on the Lazy Pant - you probably didn't think today we would be pairing it with a fabulous print Helmut Lang blazer! The Helmut Lang blazer would also look fabulous with distressed denim. That is what fashion and style is all about.  Sweatpants don't have to just mean casual, why not add a little chic! A statement blazer needs to be worn. Don't save it for special occasions, or only wear it during the night. Do you own a sequins skirt? Why not wear it with an off the shoulder sweatshirt? Or wear a jean jacket with a leopard pencil skirt. You have to have fun, and take some risks. 

Helmut Lang Spring 2013 Collection is available at Fisher & Company, in London, ON

Embrace Colour

What are your thoughts on wearing cobalt blue jeans? Does the colour scare you? Well it shouldn't! Spring 2013 is all about embracing colour, of all shades and tones. Wear cobalt blue the same way you would wear your dark-wash jeans. It's all about baby steps - Wear them with a neutral blazer, we recommend a lighter shade like white, grey, or navy - keep it basic underneath the blazer, and for shoes try a nude pair. If you are going to wear a black blazer, we suggest wearing a nude or tan shoe. Nude shoes will lighten up any colour for spring/summer.

When Stripes Met Floral

Basler Spring 2013 Collection
Available ONLY at Fisher & Company, in London, ON

Spring is definitely in the air at Fisher & Company! As soon as you step into the store you are greeted by new designer Thakoon Addition, and next to him is the legend and icon Diane von Furstenberg, but if you walk a little further you will see discover beautiful silk floral prints, bold black and white stripes from popular German designer brand, Basler. The collection we currently have in the store is exciting, vibrant, energized, and how they put it - Very New York. 

The safe way to wear a floral print skirt is of course with a black or white blazer, but at Fisher & Company we are always pushing the style envelope - wear it with a black and white blazer. Dress the floral print skirt down by pairing it with a black and white stripe tee. 

It's how we put the outfit together, that sets us apart from the rest.

MSP Spring 2013

Marie Saint Pierre Spring 2013 collection reflects meditative ideologies based on the concept of material nobleness.  Using sheer fabric to play up her collection, she assembles mesh and silk georgette with bonded fabric to create a flow that is heavy yet light in a collection dominated by the concepts of faux layers. 
Coral, turquoise, and fuchsia colours lighten up the neutral tones such as black, charcoal and bone white, offering a more graphic yet subtle highlight intensity. 
R&B Singer Keyshia Cole is a fan of Marie Saint Pierre

A Bold Statement

There may be snow still on the ground, but the sun is shining and it's giving us a taste of what's to come. So in the spirit of spring fashion, we are gearing up for DVF Spring Arrivals!!! Bold prints, vibrant colours, new shapes, graphic black & white...just some of the DVF spring trends that will be arriving at Fisher & Company. Check out some of the highlights from DVF Spring 2013 Runway Show in New York. Fisher & Company is the only store in London, ON where you can purchase Diane von Furstenberg. 

Did you know: After the phenomenal success of the wrap dress, Diane was featured on the cover of Newsweek magazine in 1976. The cover was intended to be Gerald Ford, who had just won his first Repulican Presidential Primary. The accompanying article declared her "the most marketable woman since Coco Chanel."

Best Dressed

Sunday night was The 55th Grammy Awards, and yes it's all about the music, but for us it's all about the FASHION!!! 

Loved the colour (crimson red), loved her ombre hair, loved the train, loved it all!

We did not expect Beyonce to wear a jumpsuit to the Grammys, but we are sure happy she did. Proving that pants can be just as formal as a dress. 

There has been mixed reviews on Adele's dress choice, but we love how she chose a bright floral dress rather then her usual black ensemble. Fashion is all about taking risks, and she sends a positive message you don't have to be a size 4 to wear bright colours or prints.

Style Icon: Katie Couric

Katie Couric is currently on Fisher & Company's STYLE RADAR. In her industry, masculine suiting is usually the dress code, but Katie has always added the right amount of femininity to every suit. She does that by adding a silk blouse underneath her jackets, and adding the right amount of jewelry. Katie is almost always wearing a dress, by the way she LOVES colour, and sleeveless.

Add a touch of  femininity and sophistication to your masculine suits with a silk blouse, and jewelry.

Don't want an all black ensemble? Mix navy and black together.

Have an event to attend in the evening? Opt for colour, and sleeveless.

Casual dressing doesn't mean wearing your yoga wear. Put on a statement coat, stripe tee, and dark denim.

How to achieve her style? Hugo Boss, Arthur Mendonca, Diane von Furstenberg, Riani, Tombolini, Marc Cain, MICHAEL Michael Kors, Rebecca Taylor, and IRIS.

1 Blouse = 3 Ways to Wear It

Miranda Kerr is a huge fan of Equipment blouses, check out how she wear the sleeveless white blouse three different ways. Remember all you need is a key item in your wardrobe, and the possibilities are endless! STYLE TIP: Leave the white blouse unbutton, add a top or tank underneath, and now you have transformed the blouse into a blazer. The white blouse is an obvious choice to have in a wardrobe, but often an item that is forgotten about. Do you own a white blouse?

Reasons why we love the White Blouse:
#1 - The white blouse works with everything, even a vibrant colour print skirt. Spend your days in a office? The white blouse gives your versatility and wear-ability. All you need to do is throw on a blazer and you are out the door!

#2 - The white blouse is an obvious choice for the office, but it should also be your choice when dressing casually chic. The white blouse paired with slim pant, ankle pant, denim will give you an effortlessly cool look. Wear with a flat, wedge, or heel.

#3 - Just because you don't spend your days in the corporate world, doesn't mean you should not own a white blouse. The white blouse will transform any outfit. When you are out and about running errands, or carpooling, pair the white blouse with your fave khaki pants, shorts, and casual skirts.

Wardrobing 101

The KEY to wardrobing is purchasing items that have versatility and wear-ability. Think of a classic black coat, the colours works with everything, and it's an item you can dress up and down. Classic means "wear forever," and you should also consider investing in. Now what about a coat with a print or bold colour? Both    have the same versatility and wear-ability as a black coat...yes we even mean if the colour is a vibrant purple, or a leopard print! 

Heading to dinner or the theater? Wear the coat done up, add some statement jewelry such as a cuff, and a broach. This is a great time to wear that beautiful broach from your Great-Grandmother! 

How to dress the same coat down? We love how Olivia Palermo left her coat opened, and layered it with a black fur vest - but chose to wear it underneath. Pair it with your fave leather pant, jeans. or cargo pants. 

Have any wardrobing questions? Send us a e-mail!
OR give us a call!

Casually Chic

Heading out for dinner with your girlfriends, but not really sure what to wear? If the dress code is casual - what about casually chic??? First things first, slip on your fave pair of jeans. Make sure they are a dark wash - especially in the winter, dark wash means dressier. To dress up a pair of jeans, all you need is the right top, shoes, and accessories. Tops we recommend? Definitely the peplum top, silk blouses, sheer tops, leather tops - will always dress up a pair of jeans. Now add a little bling - a cuff, a statement necklace - jewelry whether costume or real will always dress up any look. As for the shoes, we recommend a heel - will dress up your look, even a kitten heel or wedge. Style? Ankle boot, tall boot, and of course the single-sole pump.

Designers we recommend: DVF, Equipment, M Missoni, Hugo Boss, Elizabeth and James, Rebecca Taylor, Marc Cain, Riani, Juicy Couture, and Thakoon Addition.
