Like a kid on Christmas morning we have so many boxes to open! For fashion girls everywhere Fall is a great season, the colours, the fabrics, the styles - it's all amazing. So when new clothes start to arrive we can barely keep ourselves from buying them all first. To level the playing field here is some of our new arrivals
We're back at it! The heatwave isn't leaving and even though we hate to say it, pre fall clothing is hitting the store.. we still have amazing options to wear right now! Looking for something fresh? Denim, tanks, tees and dresses are all new! Don't feel blue the summer is coming to a close, but instead grab some of these pretty pieces and live it up!
Finally the long weekend is upon us - don't overthink it when you realize it's the second last one of summer... It's a time to rejoice with friends on the dock during this heat wave and really relax. Before the mindset of back to work starts to kick in, grab these easy summer outfits and make the best of the sunshine.
Summer is all about no pants! This easy sleeveless dress from Bella Dahl is easy, comfortable and chic. Dress it up or dress it down, this is the ideal cottage look.
Heading into the marina for dinner? Another BBQ? This long sleeve lace dress by Velvet is ideal for nights on the water. Elegant but understated, the LBD of summer
Easy, breezy, beautiful blouses from Bella Dahl again! These pretty micro prints add charm to a classic button down, pair with a classic pair of Levi's shorts and you're set
Grab your bathing suit and a light cover up and head to the dock! To hold all your beachy needs, Herschel bags provide the best bags for space, support and style.
Let's be honest, every now and then everyone loves a flower crown. What people don't love: cultural appropriation. Music festival outfits always walk a fine line - we have the celebs at Coachella look flawless in the heat, but we also have the sweaty almost naked people bringing down the crowd. Music festivals should be fun and care free, and all about the music! Yet, streetstyle photos exist so we want you to look your best and act your best, all while jamming out to your fave band crush.
First things first, packing essentials:
Multiple pairs of sunglasses, sun protection & layers, comfortable shoes & bags! And we can't forget a hangover pill - that and hydration will help keep your spirits up for the whole trip!
Protect your head with a hat, no one likes heat stroke! Keep your outfits light and bright - shorts are easy to move in and this eyelet top will keep you cute and comfortable
If your boyfriend has Handsome Me shirts - Steal them! Rock the boyfriend look, you're comfortable, your able to move easily & weather the elements and you look damn hip doing it!
We love a good onesie. Let's take a moment to reflect on peeing in a public bathroom in a onesie.... ok feeling of love has passed. You don't have to give up style for function - rock a proper bodysuit that has a button flap.
Play around with prints and patterns! You're going to be dancing so grab something that allows you to play freely
Accessorize! - no one does a multi faceted necklace quite like Jenny Bird, you can wear this frontwards or backwards
Secret Tip: Use pocket squares to get a unique bandana look!
SO to break it down... Don't wear headdresses, wear comfortable shoes, and bring layers. Whichever festival you go to, have fun, stay safe & look chic!

Local. Something we take seriously at Gotstyle. Which is why, when Toronto born Ellie Mae launched her eponymous label last year and showed at Toronto Fashion Week this past March, we took notice. Handmade right here in downtown Toronto is her contemporary line of outerwear. Beautiful patterns, stunning fabrics sourced from Italy and each piece so intricate you almost want two - one to frame and one to wear.
Having studied fashion design at Central Saint Martin's School in London, she is inspired by the city and the music that has guided her way - embroidering some of these iconic quotes and lyrics on the inside. This attention to detail could be one of the reasons Sophie Trudeau, among many other great Canadians fell in love with her designs.
So for those that love to shop local and love fashion, her pieces are for you. The Audrey, Brooklyn and Solange bombers from her SS16 collection are in store now, because let's face it we're all on that bomber jacket trend. They're the perfect layering piece for summer nights no matter the event.
The Solange Bomber $595
It's definitely something Solange would wear, and doesn't everyone want to be as cool as her?
This bomber also has stylish mesh inserts to really keep you cool

There's something to be said for wearing good underwear. Our grandmothers always gave the sage advice to wear nice underwear in case you ever found yourself in the situation that a hot paramedic had to see them. Still, there's more to it. The better you feel underneath it all, the more confidence you exude and the better you carry yourself. We're sure you all look good naked, but we want you to look and feel just as great in this new Dutch line of lingerie.
Intimates collection Love Stories, based out of Amsterdam is our new obsession. With their funky fabrics, designs and styles, their new collection offers the wearer the unique choice to mix and match the striking pieces. It's a love story between comfort and beauty, with these sexy little numbers even doubling as bathing suits in some cases, really allowing for the underwear to become outerwear.
