How could you choose? 13 Style Panel members reflect on their favourite outfits ever

Comments

Style Panel Favourite Outfit

Can you believe it!? The 100th challenge. For nearly two years, our trusty Style Panel has been conquering style challenges from coast to coast.

In honour of the 100th challenge we wanted to look back at the best-of by asking the Style Panel bloggers to chose a favouriite-ever look. This turned out to be the hardest challenge of all, since narrowing it down to a single look is no easy task. (Asking a fashion blogger to choose a favourite piece of clothing is like giving someone a litter of puppies and then telling them they can only choose one—nearly impossible, and sort of mean.)

The Panel, a handpicked group of Canada’s best-dressed fashion bloggers, has been answering your fashion queries using their unique fashion know-how. They’ve helped figure out Canadian tuxedos, taught us how to conquer normcore and fearlessly navigated through pastels. The Panel has been there like fashion seraphs leading through the sometimes-confusing trend terrain.

Question 100: If you had to choose, what would your favourite look be from recent years? Read the answers now! »

Cat-eye redux: 3 tips from the Beauty Panel for changing your approach to eyeliner

Comments

cat eye

A good eyeliner can work beauty magic. It can quickly change a daytime look into one better suited for night, add some oomph when your mascara’s not cutting it or provide a splash of colour in an otherwise neutral look. However, even a product as versatile as eyeliner can become routine, which is why this week’s Beauty Panel is all about changing up the way you do a cat-eye. On the Spring 2014 runways, makeup artists did up graphic eyeliner looks that ranged from geometric masterpieces to larger-than-life swooshes of black. Whether you swap out your usual liner for one in a bright colour or opt to end you cat-eye in a square shape, these looks are sure to inspire.

Challenge 58: How do you make the cat-eye look new this season? See the answers now! »

How to rock the Canadian tuxedo: 5 Style Panel tips for wearing all over denim

Comments

all over denim

Ah, the Canadian tuxedo. Some love it and wear it well, others live in constant fear of looking like Britney and Justin when doing an all-demin look. Well, this week the Style Panel is all about converting any Canadian tuxedo naysayers into advocates for the look. The number one tip for trying all-denim is to make sure there’s some colour mixing going on. If you’re wearing dark jeans, pair it with a light-wash chambray shirt. And should you think this is a weekend-only look, think again: sharp tailoring and modern silhouettes can make all over denim a welcome mid-week style.

Question 99: How do you wear all over denim? Read the answers now! »

How do you look good in a selfie? 4 Beauty Panel tips for camera-ready makeup

Comments

selfie makeup

The selfie is having quite the moment. First it was crowned the Oxford English Dictionary’s word of the year, then it made Twitter-breaking records at the Oscars and we dare you to try and get “#Selfie” out of your head after one listen. But despite it’s popularity, taking a picture-perfect selfie (see what we did there?) can still be a challenge for many. Pose choices, lighting and photo editing apps aside, sometimes all you need is a little bit of makeup to make all the difference. Which is why we’ve turned to the Beauty Panel for their tips on how to look good in a photograph. With a few easy tricks (primer, your fave mascara, an extra dab of gloss) you’ll look like a selfie pro in no time! And, as an added bonus, all these tips work for looking good in all other types of photos, too.
