How to dress freelance

If you’re one of the almost 20% of Canadians working from home, you’ve likely faced what we like to call the “Outdoor Dilemma:” Part-timing it as an entrepreneur, mommy blogger or cam girl (just kidding) all day long and realizing at some god-forsaken hour that you need to exit the house. You’re out of groceries. The Pringles stash must be replenished. You reach one hand up to your ratty, tangled nest of hair and one hand down to your no-pants and realize this is impossible. Hungry and cold, you settle into bed without dinner, starved by your own lack of world-ready attire.

No more. I’m here to tell you: You can dress like a comfortable human while easily transitioning from “reclined in my office space/Girls viewing theatre” to “elegant coffee shop patron.” Here’s how to dress for a chic freelance life:

See all 5 of Kate’s looks from the weekend »

It was a very busy weekend for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge—but busy is always welcome for those of us obsessed with the royals, especially when you consider that Kate Middleton had 5 outfit changes! We have photos of every single look in our massive Kate Middleton style gallery, but here’s a rundown of what the royals got up to in New Zealand.

On Saturday, the Cambridges went to Cambridge! The couple toured the town and met with locals who lined the streets. Kate debuted a new coat by Erdem—a bright green, knee-length coat with front zip from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection. She paired it with a floral print tea dress by Suzannah, though only the hemline was visible. Knowing Kate, we’ll likely see this dress in full at some point in the future. Since when doesn’t she wear an item more than once? Read more »

There’s nothing the fashion world loves more than a new style muse and when Gap hired Rebekka Bay as its creative director last year, our sartorial spidey senses went into overdrive. The mastermind behind upscale H&M sister brand COS, the soft-spoken Danish designer has already achieved cult standing among editors, bloggers and cool kids alike for her sophisticated approach to modern minimalist dressing.

Spring 2014 marks Bay’s first collection with Gap, and if insider reactions at the presentation in New York back in October were any indication, she hasn’t lost her Midas touch. Featuring a summer-ready lineup of acid-wash jeans, bleached pastels and perfectly slouchy sweatshirts, her spring collection is a lust-worthy first look at a re-imagined Gap and a new American style that’s refreshing, relaxed and seriously cool. We sat down with the newly minted creative director after her spring presentation to talk icons, Americana and giving Gap its mojo back.
