A visit from…Diesel

We’re secretly a bit excited for fall to arrive. We love wearing tall boots, warm sweaters and gorgeous scarves. We also love our jeans, but they’ve gathered a bit of dust during this long, hot summer (not that we’re complaining!). Now that cooler days are just around the corner, we invited Christina Krcevinac from Diesel Canada up to the fourth floor, to share her favourite pieces from the fall/winter Diesel collection. 

Christina has been the Communications Manager at Diesel Canada for over six years. She plans and executes events, coordinates magazine shoots and styling, handles press and hosts some of the world’s biggest celebrities at the annual ONEXONE event. Her obsession with detail often has her knee-deep in dirty work (sometimes literally) and she loves every minute of it.

The warm summer days are fading as quickly as your suntan, and it’s time to think about picking up some of your favourite wardrobe staples for autumn.

With shorter days and colder nights, denim is the best way to transition your wardrobe in time for fall. Extend your summer wardrobe by adding a hint of denim to your every day looks.

When it comes to denim, don’t always think jeans! This work-wear inspired fabric can add a little warmth and texture to your summer favourites, like a jean jacket paired over a silk slip dress. Layer your boyfriend’s jean shirt over shorts and wear with ankle boots. Or, add coloured tights under your super-short jean shorts.

Once you have those staples down, take it a step further with the ultra-stylish denim (a.k.a. “Canadian”) tuxedo. This look is not just for farmers anymore! When done right, this denim-on-denim look adds instant fashion-forward street cred. Just don’t wear matching colors – pair light and dark fabrics, or distressed and raw treatments to ensure effortless style.

Adding denim to your nighttime ensembles dresses them down and makes them more relaxed. If you don’t want to be too casual, add a little polish with some chains (as shown on the Matic 8SV), sequence tuxedo stripe (Zivy 8S9) or studs. Stay in transition by getting a skinny pair that stops at the ankle or cuff them to just below your calf.

Packing up your sunblock and flip flops becomes a little bit easier when you have purchases like these to look forward to.
