FASHION: A Gift Guide For A Style Star

When it comes to gift giving, practical is the move. Since COVID-19 has confined most people to their homes and workplaces, trendier items have taken second place to timeless pieces. A new class of wardrobe and accessory staples has also emerged, including the handy dandy mask chain.

That said, living in a pandemic doesn’t mean that all of your fashion sense has to go out the window – its proven week after week in our #TrendingInCanada series. Fashionistas across the country are just as invested in getting creative with their #WFH wardrobes as they were in getting dressed for a #GNO on a “normal” Friday.

Nevertheless, if having (or gifting) the most stylish winter essentials is important to you, then you’re looking at the right guide.

Happy shopping.
