Plan Your Perfect Wardrobe

Planning your perfect wardrobe is all about making the most of what you wear. Each season, we want you to build the perfect wardrobe. Whether that means starting from scratch, or adding on from the previous wardrobe. What are you coveting? What basics need replacing? Are there any long-term desirables you are still lusting for? This is the time to figure out what the game plan is for your spring wardrobe

One of the many mistakes we see women make when shopping, is they are not buying what they absolutely need, but they are buying what they absolutely love right now. At Fisher & Company we believe that what you wear should be in sync with how you live. For instance, if you are spending all week in the office, then majority of your wardrobe should be work appropriate. We are here to show you how to take the blazer from your power suit and make it weekend ready. Or for example how to get the most looks out of your favorite dress. It's all about finding the pieces you love and that complement how you live.

Regardless of your lifestyle, every woman needs at least one blazer in their closet - no matter the season.

Some of the hottest celebrities, models, socialites, and magazine editors have been wearing the floral jean. Dress them up with a chic blazer and sky-high stilettos or wear them casually with a chambray blouse and ballet flats.

Fun, Sweet & Flirty

We agree, this isn't a look for every woman - but we wanted to start of the week with something fun, sweet, and flirty...isn't that Spring/Summer is all about? The short, fuller skirt is playful, but will finish every outfit on a feminine note. What else does this fabulous skirt have? Bright prints, which we all know is the perfect invitation to Spring!

Thakoon Addition Print Skirt
Available at Fisher & Company in London, ON

Short, fuller skirts are chic for summer - but remember since you are showing a lot of leg, don't show too much up top. Keep it classic with a tailored white blouse and ballet flats, or give a little contrast with a blush sweater and leopard wedges, or for some downtime cool wear it with a grey t-shirt, and tan leather sandals. STYLE BONUS: This skirt is not only for the warm-weather, wear it in the fall with black turtleneck, leather bomber jacket, black opaque tights and ankle boots.

The DRESS To Love

When it comes to classic and femininity - RED Valentino delivers every time. The dress (regardless of the season) seems to always be at the top of the list of must-have items to purchase each season. Dresses are so easy to wear, most of the time all you have to do is slip it on, pick a pair of shoes and voila! You are all set. 

Wear Casually - wear with a flat leather sandal, straw bag, and a vibrant colour linen scarf.

Wear Dressy - wear with a single sole pump, and loads of pearls.

Wear to the office - throw on a blazer, smart slingback kitten heels and you are out the door! For spring/summer, we suggest a blazer in a lighter hue such as white, pretty pastels, and denim. 

Remember the perfect dress will take you anywhere!

The Sheer Blouse

Some women may feel that the sheer blouse is off-limits in their spring wardrobe - but we are here to tell you that the sheer blouse doesn't have to intimidating. The best way that you can wear a sheer top for during the day is to wear a matching tank or cami under the blouse. If you can't do a matching, then try black, white, or nude. When you wear a tank underneath, it will give the right amount of sophistication. In the evening, you could wear the sheer blouse with a fabulous black bra underneath, and then wear a blazer or leather jacket on you are just showing a bit of skin. Regardless of your comfort zone, the sheer blouse is an essential for spring, and the look isn't going anywhere!

The Floral Print Pant

The Many Ways to Wear: The Floral Print Pant

1. A safe choice is to wear a white or black top with the floral print pant, try stepping outside of your comfort zone and wear one of the colours in the pant. A good choice would be orange or blue. What to wear on your feet? We suggest a nude heel or flat. The nude shoe will compliment any print and bold colour.   

2. A ladylike tweed jacket will add a feminine softness to the bold floral print pant. We do believe that every fashionable wardrobe needs to have a tweed jacket. Wearing the floral print pant will give the tweed jacket a contemporary feel.

Power Player

Every season, we talk about what essential pieces you need in your closet. For spring, one of the key pieces that will update your spring wardrobe instantly is The Blazer. We highlight the blazer in our Spring 2013 Trend Report (which can be found on our website). The blazer for spring is in a variety of colour, texture, details, and lengths. What's on our radar right now? MICHAEL Michael Kors cream blazer. It's not your traditional length, the shorter length works for many body shapes. For a casual look wear with with jeans and nude open toe booties, for an effortlessly glamorous daytime look. For a feminine office look, wear it with a floral print shift dress, and soft pink pumps. A fabulous blazer has versatility and wear-ability! P.S - We also 
love the gleaming gold tone zipper detail.

Classic Is Always In

Never underestimate the power of classic wardrobe staples. I just came across this picture of Mila Jovovich wearing a white blouse and black trouser pant, and yes it is simple - but still very chic. It's a look that caters to all ages, and personal styles. In a season full of colour, and print - it can easily feel overwhelming, but what's great about the classic pieces is that they will work no matter the season.

Spring Essentials

Spring Essentials you NEED to have in your closet NOW! 

#1 - Thakoon Addition Print Tunic - The tunic gives the right amount of print, and if most of your bottoms are neutral colours, then this tunic will easily work into your spring wardrobe. Neutrals we recommend? Black, white, grey, navy, tan, and brown. Slip this sophisticated style on with sleek pants and pointed pumps for contemporary cocktail look.

#2 - Thakoon Addition Leopard Print Pant - We are seriously obsessed with the leopard print ankle pant! It's an easy way to add print to your wardrobe, and the fact that it's black and white, will make it easy to wear with bold colours. The ankle pant remains an essential for spring.

We continue our obsession with the Spring Essential - The Print Dress. Dresses are so easy to wear and versatile. There is something about this print that we can't take our eyes off of it.
