Ask The Stylist: Burgundy Lion

The last few days have been frighteningly cold, and we can smell hints of Autumn in the air. The trees are already starting to lose their leaves, and as August comes to an end, Fall is approaching with haste. Luckily, we can all bundle up with a colour that's bouncing back so hard, you will be on it like white on rice! Not literally, though.

The trendy colour we're talking about for fall, is in fact burgundy. It's all over the runways, and not to mention, most stylish fashionistas. Burgundy, maroon, wine-red, whatever you want to call it -- it's in and it's hot. You will definitely want to get your hands on it before September so you can hit the streets with style and finesse. Take a look at some of the items available for purchase on the upcoming NET A LA MODE website!

Ask The Stylist: Sweater Weather!

The thought of cool weather seems daunting right now, as the sunshine is still delighting us with its light and warmth every morning. But we can't pretend like Fall isn't around the corner -- so it's best to start preparing for its cool breeze, orange leaves, and get ready for it.... outfits! Yes!! See, not so bad, right ladies?! Actually NET A LA MODE loves the Fall because it means warm sweaters! And this season, oversized, big, bundled, sweaters is where it's at. Mixing big, warm, sweaters with leggings is what you're going to see this fall, so get in on the trend first, and have your friends follow right behind with PRESS's Deep-V Button Down Cardigan, and Striped Drape Front Cardigan, below. Both available for purchase on the upcoming NET A LA MODE website!

Kat Von D's rocking clothing line + an exclusive sneak preview

By now, most of you have certainly heard of Kat Von D. Between her show on TLC, her unusual yet rocking appearance, her best-selling book and her new eponymous clothing line, it's kind of hard not to have. The clothing line, which will be launching in the fall, features some very cool and stylish pieces. Here's a look at what will be featured on NET A LA MODE, modeled by Sarah. 

Don't hesitate to further explore our Flickr account, where there are many more great looks by brands such as Gentle Fawn and Second Denim to be found. Enjoy! Check out the album Here

The black dress, which features feathers on the sleeves, goes from casual to dressy in no time.

Ask The Stylist: Summer Love

Summer Love is in the air...

and so is the "Romantic" fashion trend!

This includes soft pinks, pastels, neutrals, floral prints, lace, and everything in between. Flowing dresses, skirts, bustiers, and A-line cuts are also included in the mix, and the more feminine, the better. Isn't it great, ladies? Almost anything you can think of that reminds you of fairytale-like romance is in style right now, so don't be afraid to don your most romantic look in your every day routine. There's never a place or time where you can't dress (or act) like the true romantic princess you are deep down, and wearing a pair of heels with a gorgeous BCBGeneration dress to the grocery store is positively encouraged by NET A LA MODE!

In fact, now that we are in the midst of summer and fashion is bringing us the most effeminate trend of all, we certainly need to take advantage of it. A pastel bustier top matched with an A-Line skirt is definitely what we're talking about. Before we know it, it will be fall and we won't be able to frolic in the grass and lilies with our flowing skirts and dresses like we can right now! (However, more amazing trends are up and coming for the fall so it really isn't that bad ;) haha!)

Check out BCBGeneration, Gentle Fawn, and Kensie for more romantic pieces!

Lucca Couture

Worn by everyone from Emma Roberts to TV's hottest reality stars, Lucca Couture is fast becoming one of today's most sought-after brands. Founded by Jane Moon, the label sets out to build a bridge between high-end fashion and street style. Sounds like the NET A LA MODE philosophy... 

Yesterday afternoon, a Montreal-based model, Daria, came by the NET A LA MODE offices to give us a sneak peak at a dress that will be carried on our website starting in August. The dress, which is in classic black and features a delicate lace pattern on the front, is perfect for a night out in any season. The mesh sleeves make for an airy and comfortable look.

Ask The Stylist: ROUGE

Alright gang. We all know it and see it and its RED. We're talking red as in cherry red, poppy red, lava red, candy apple red, and all of the other billion types of red out there. The trend is back and its hitting us with its brightest shade yet. So here it is, but what do we do with it? Sometimes wearing red can go all wrong, but if you know how to rock it, you're going to stand out in the crowd with confidence.

Since wearing bright red shades can be a bit of a toughey, when you're deciding to wear a piece that's red, be it: a shirt, a skirt, or a pair of shorts or pants, you need to recognize that its this red item that is the star of your outfit. In working with red, keeping things simple is the best way to go. Black, white, and tan always does the trick, along with other neutral colours that don't disrupt the brightness that is already part of your outfit. However, if you feel like walking on the wild side - don't be afraid to match your look with other bright summery colours. Warm tones like yellows and oranges go well, even a royal blue would be a nice addition.

Accessories that help to compliment bright red shades include jewelry of all types; but especially look good in gold, silver, and bronze. What you don't want to do though is overdress your outfit with too many accessories, but instead balance it with items that will make it look popping and yet, complete. For example, when wearing a red mini skirt, a nice way to complete the look would be with a white blouse, a pair of black pumps, and some frilly earrings and bangles that will give you that extra feminine touch (let's not forget to get those nails done, now that it's summer!)

Take a look below at the outfits that inspire NET A LA MODE and let us know what you think! Happy Monday everyone!

Ask The Stylist: The Maxi -- Yes or No?

It's summer time, and the livin' is breeezy. Time for Monday's Ask The Stylist!

Okay ladies, get ready to feast your eyes on the maxi dress. This ankle-length wonder garment has come back in style, but is still hard to find roaming the streets of Montreal. One must wonder, why? People seem to be a little on the border about the maxi. So today's question is....

   

The Maxi -- Yes or No?

Let's check out the logistics. First of all, come summer time, everyone wants to feel beautiful and stand out. With maxi dresses, one can find beautiful cuts and prints like the ones you see above from Covet, and BB Dakota. The aesthetic of a long, flowing maxi dress is visually stunning. A woman walking down the street wearing one always steals the attention of a crowd. Secondly, in hot summer weather, it's always a plus when you wear something that keeps you cool and comfortable. Not only does the maxi dress do exactly that, but no matter where you are or what you're doing, the feeling of the light and delicate fabric of a maxi caressing your entire body is utterly euphoric. So don't be surprised if you are in a strangely elated all day long, while wearing a maxi dress. Thus,

The Verdict?

NET A LA MODE says screams yes, Yes, YES! 
The mini dress is still fighting for survival, but the elegant maxi dress is surely going to take over -- as it should!
