Style Highlight: STATEMENT Jackets

Statement jackets have been a MAJOR trend on the runways for a few seasons now, and will continue into the foreseeable future. Although some may appear intimidating at first, there's absolutely NO reason to be scared. We've come to view them as a fashion "NO BRAINER", just slip on a patterned or textured jacket with a basic outfit, and you've instantly, in a matter of seconds, elevated your look! Pictured above is one of our personal favourites, Tularosa's "Santa Fe Jacket" in Burnt Red. Rich in hue, this intricately woven beauty features a contrasting embroidered trim and hand finished fringed hemline. Throw it on over just about anything and everything for an instant style upgrade.

Strongly advisable is owning at least a few statement jackets, especially if your closest friends are fashionistas themselves, lol!!! Something tells us, we'll be expecting a fair share of them to trickle in with our fall/winter deliveries...

Brand Alert: Marra Market

New to Yu is Marra Market, a line of Moroccan based rugs, pillows, poufs, and, in our favourite, CARPET CLUTCHES!!! Giving new meaning to reduce, reuse, recycle, these one of a kind handbags are created using vintage carpets FULL of colour, intricate motifs, and interesting texture. For a great daytime look, we love these clutches paired with a white tee and denim shorts; for evening, an all black ensemble provides the perfect backdrop for such a statement making bag. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.

What's Mabel Wearing???

Having just gotten back from Stampede, Mabel can't seem to get out of her Rails' plaid. We honestly don't blame her, there are few things cozier than a great Rails' button-down shirt! To up the style quotient, our girl's decided to layer her classic "Hunter Shirt" in Ruby/Navy over Lauren Moshi's "NURA Color Horse Flag Tee" in Black. In keeping with the whole "equestrian" theme, she's chosen to finish off her ensemble with Free People's "Uptown Shorts" in Harbor and B-Low the Belt's infamous "Bri-Bri Belt" in Gold, and, of course, no outfit would be complete without jewels, and this week, Mabel's decided on a light stack by both Shakti and Jugar 'N Spice.

Equipment x Kate Moss

Supermodel Kate Moss has collaborated with Equipment to create a one of a kind capsule collection that incorporates her signature style with the brand's classic designs. She feels sexiest and most comfortable in classic menswear and silk styles, and has created a line with fun prints to allow you to feel the same.

"Ryder Crew Neck Sweater" in Black/Cherry Red Celestial Print

The "Ryder Crew Neck Sweater" in Black/Cherry Red Celestial Print is a slightly cropped cashmere knit featuring extra long sleeves for a rock 'n roll edge. To channel your inner Kate, layer this beauty over a silk slip dress with strappy high-heeled sandals.

"Lake Pajama Top" in Bright White

Received in Bright White, the "Lake Pajama Top", crafted of luxurious matte silk, boasts classic pajama detailing with a slightly cropped fit and 3/4 length sleeves. With a monogrammed "KM" above the left pocket, this discretely sexy number looks AMAZING worn with high-waisted trousers and platform heels.

"Collarless Slim Signature Clean Print Blouse" in True Black Mini Tokyo Star Print

Hands down a favourite around here is the "Collarless Slim Signature Clean Print Blouse" in True Black Mini Tokyo Star Print. With a slightly tapered cut and attached neck tie, this GORGEOUS blouse with an allover mini star print, gives the classic cut shirt an alternative edge.

"Slim Signature Clean Print Blouse" in Nature White/True Black Celestial Print

Equipment's ever-popular "Slim Signature Clean Print Blouse" receives an update in a fun galactic print. Wear this gem half-tucked into faded skinnies with the sleeves rolled up and a suede wrap choker necklace for a subtly sexy ensemble.


Style Highlight: Downtown Polish

In general, we're HUGE fans of mixing both casual and conventionally "dressy" pieces together in one outfit; the most interesting combinations seem to arise when we do...

Graphic tees and plaid button-down shirts, widely perceived as casual items, can easily be "dressed up" with the addition of a leather jacket and stacked heeled boots. In the picture above, the jacket, in this case, DOMA's "Darken Lambskin Moto Jacket" in Black, gives overall structure and polish while Joie's "Dalton Booties" serve as an anchor punctuating the entire look. As a result of all these elements working together in harmony, what we get in the end then hopefully, is an interesting combination of both street and high fashion.

We're loving the toned down floral pattern of Equipment's "Signature Blouse" in Black Floral Multi. Semi-sheer, this classic button-down top features a notched collar and dual front pockets. Although great over a silk cami, we prefer it layered over a lace bralette with distressed skinnies and stacked heels. For added interest, the top knots beautifully in the front...a great way of showcasing a statement belt, don't you think?!!
