Fashion is the armor to survive the reality of everyday life’- Bill Cunningham.

It might be true that we are still struggling with cold, wind and rain in Canada but here is a fact: we have officially entered spring months which means it is that time of the year to start upgrading your wardrobe. Fashion in springtime is like coffee in the morning; a perfect pairing that stands the test of time! Let’s take a look at the trends and styles we can expect to see this month.

Mermaid sequins are all the rage now, whether on a pillow, accessory, or even a shoe. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the new trends, mermaid sequins are sequins sewed onto material with different colours on each side, ultimately changing colour and brightness when you swipe your hand across the material. Designers all over the world are hopping on board the sequin train and incorporating the style into their latest lines. From dresses, to shirts, and everything in between, sequins are the latest and hottest trend.

We’ve all heard the phrase ‘reduce, reuse, and recycle’ and hopefully it has inspired us to make greener changes for the planet. This season, designers are heading to their recycling bins for the latest trend; plastic clothing. By wearing garments made from recycled plastic, not only are you helping the planet but you look great while you do it too. Fun fact, the American company Patagonia has a whole line of fleece jackets made out of 100% recycled polyester that came from plastic water bottles.
