Out on a limb: Our September issue photo shoot starring Lisa Cant in the season’s most exciting new pant
H&M is the not-so-secret mecca for tights, and the best place to stock up on these semi-opaque black basics. ($10, hm.com)
With our bronze glows fading and days turning brisk, it’s time to haul out the hosiery. Hoseanna (hoseanna.com) takes the legwork out of buying it. This online store, co-founded by Vancouverite Katrina Carroll-Foster, replenishes your stockings automatically every one, two or three months. Take a cue from the Fall 2011 Marc Jacobs runway (shown) and don a polka-dot pair by Hanes ($10).
It’s hard to think of a designer right now who’s more white-hot that Mark Fast. So the anticipation for his upcoming diffusion line, Faster, is–safe to say–pretty high. The London-based Canadian’s intricate knit dresses usually run in the thousands of dollars, but the new line will come in at a more accessible price-point. The leggings, which will be available at Holt Renfrew in March, ring in at $225. There’s also a skin-tight peek-a-boo dress that we would wear in some alternate universe where we weren’t still eating holiday cookies and a top with sports-bra shaping that would be great under a low-cut sweater. The full line, which the designer told WWD was inspired the tights he created for the swag bags at his London Fashion Week spring show, is available through Browns (brownsfashion.com) in the UK, which delivers to Canada.

Some ladies play it safe in blustery, snowy weather. They choose sensible, thick, black tights and pair them with warm, cozy boots and lined wool trousers. These practical women likely have mothers who sleep easy at night knowing their daughters are not going to freeze for fashion’s sake, by glances of approval from their like-minded peers and by being toasty warm in the bitter Canadian cold.
