The Ultimate Power Suit For Ladies

For the boss lady who wants a suit that hugs her curves the way they are supposed to be hugged, the wait is over... Introducing the Made to Measure program for women

Made to measure for women is not an easy feat. We have breasts, hips and all types of curves that fall on different places depending on who you are. To accommodate this took time, practice and a concise understanding of suit making, all of which our made to measure specialist has mastered as he took on this challenge of making suits for women.

We launched this program late last year, after testing out the suit making process on the real women of Gotstyle. From different shapes, sizes and styles, the made to measure program for ladies is ready. Since then, countless clients have praised the process, and the feedback has been promising as we seem to be filling a niche in between the high price of Bespoke suits and off the rack.

We know how discouraging it is when something doesn't fit, but with custom suiting it's a seamless process of a few fittings so that it is tailored exactly to you. You are the designer - from fit to desires such as button colour or lining, with tons of cloths to choose from, you have creative freedom. If you want it to be monogrammed with a Beyonce lyric, we will nod with approval and add that to your suit.

 

The life of your suit is determined not only by how often you wear it, but quality of fabrics, fits and construction. Our suiting features a half canvas construction (sewn in canvas piece in the chest and the lapel of the jacket, and is fused on the bottom part of the jacket, allowing it to become like a second skin, without breaking the bank of a full canvas suit). Plus, it's made in Canada

You will receive the full custom experience, Konstantine has created measurements that target a variety of sizes and body shapes, allowing us to accommodate anyone. Whether it's for a special occasion, the office or it's simply time to revamp your wardrobe, our made to measure program is a great new way to look and feel great in your clothes.

What they make:

Pants from $325

Skirts from $325

Jackets from $995

Suits from $1295

The process takes about 6-8 weeks

Gotstyle Woman Goes To New York!

UBM Fashion has created one of the largest fashion trade shows in North America. It's housed in the Jacob Javits Center and it brings together the world's most influential brands in footwear, accessories and fashion apparel. This year, our womenswear buyers headed to New York for this amazing event in search of the best trends, brands and pieces to bring back home to our clients. To say it was overwhelming is an understatement. It was 3 floors of fabulous fashion, tons of people also trying to navigate it and use the same wifi. Here's what we saw, we did and we ate! 

You might remember the party we threw for Coterie & Project last fall. We made them this sign & then we couldn't fit it in our bags to bring them :/
Impressive light packing by two fashion girls - we only used carry ons!

D A Y  O N E

The size of the signs were just a glimmer at how big the show was. 

Not only did we discover new brands but we returned to old favourites as well!

The most important time of the day, snack time. We tried Cronuts and they were amazing

We love donuts
On Charlotte: Tiger of Sweden Leather Jacket, Opelle Purse, Paige Jeans

D A Y   T W O

These textiles for Fall were gorgeous
We love this Toronto Designer for keeping it local

The Coterie Virtual Experience is what our dream home would look like

One of the things we were hunting for was exciting sweaters. 525 America seemed to bring what we were looking for. What types of sweaters do you want to see for next season?

Testing! We tried on as much product as we could to make sure things fit right. We also personal shopped... oops

D A Y   T H R E E

Hudson partnered with the Uganda Project and donated 10% off sales from Project shows to this amazing organization to empower youth through education and self love in Uganda. Check out the Uganda Project for what you can do to help

Hudson woo'd us with their unique jeans and a great party to bring awareness to their Uganda Organization and new collections

And we got personalized tote bags! Yay for tote bags

We did some product research - visiting the stores of the brands we carry or soon to are carry- excited to announce we will be bringing Diesel into our selection! It's not how you remember it, stay tuned to be wowed

T R E N D    R E P O R T

Lots of Checks, Plaid, Embellishment and pops of Red are coming for Fall.
Featured: Tiger of Sweden, Levi's & Diesel

Velvet, Burnt Orange, Ruffled Sleeves, & Stripes will also be sticking around for next season. Featured are James Jeans, and new brands Ali & Jay and J.O.A

WHERE WE ATE

L'esquina from the outside looks like a typical street scene in New York. Inside you are led through the kitchen and into the magic that is this bar/restaurant. Tacos and Tequila what more do you want?

Pizza is a food group at Gotstyle, so to have the chance to eat at one of the top pizza places in New York was a dream come true. Rubirosa is a must attend, this was the SMALL size of pizza and we ate every last bit it was so good.

Check out this new hotel in Soho, it is dreamy! 

For most FW17 is lightyears away, for us, we're almost done preparing for it. Fashion is a funny thing. Now we encourage you to get back to being excited about Spring

What's In Store This Week

The smell of spring is in the air and it is fantastic. This weekend was a sunshine dream and we're crossing our fingers and toes it's here to stay. Finally the interior of our store matches the outside world as we are full up on florals, bright colours and lighter fabrics. 
We live in Canada so jokes on us if we really believe we won't get snow again.. but that's ok, we've collected a great collection of sweaters and jackets for you as well.
There is so much happening in the city right now, February has flown by and we are a-ok with it. Whether you are checking out one of the great outdoor festivals happening around Toronto or you're still hunkering down, plan a visit to us, trust us it's worth it.

Trendy Tips To Tie A Scarf

It just so happens that the temperatures drop to make this fashionable accessory, a necessity.
Scarves can complement or make the outfit, so don't be afraid to go bold and colourful. We love the traditional plaid reimagined with new colours.
Everyone has a signature way of styling their scarves, a great way to learn different ways is to ask. Bee breaks a few great ways for you to wear them with our newly restocked Jackson Rowe scarves.

With a larger blanket scarf you have the option of wearing it as a cape! Fold the scarf into a large triangle and simply drape over you as desired, tucking in one corner at the neck to leave one flowing by your side.

Fold the scarf in half (widthwise) and drape around your shoulders with the loop on one side, and two ends on the other. Take one loose end and pull it through, over and under the scarf loop. Take the second end piece and go under and over the same loop. 

Another version of the one above with a less intricate knot, follow the above steps but only pull one end through the loop, leaving a more relaxed feel to the scarf.

The Go To: Just wrap your scarf around and let the two ends drape in front of you. This simple yet elegant look can be adjusted for however loose or tight you want the neck to be. Works well with jackets but can also be transitioned to an elegant look with a skinnier scarf.

Square scarf: Fold the scarf in half to make a triangle. Gather two ends of the triangle over and around your neck, meeting the point hanging down the front of your body. Tuck the two ends under and tie. Fluff and don't be afraid to go big. 

 A variation of the one above -Gather two ends of the triangle over and around your neck, meeting the point hanging down the front of your body. This time, tie the two ends over the larger piece and and tie a knot, creating a beautiful bow.

Denim Dreams

Skinny jeans may indeed be forever, so finding a pair that can measure up is tough.  When you find a good pair of denim, they become a second skin, you wear them everyday and when they finally bite the dust it’s a tragedy because what do you even wear now?

Here is our girl’s guide to FW16 denim

Meet DL1961 For Ladies

The Gotstye Man has been wearing these jeans for a while now and this top selling brand has proven it’s worth.
This New York City based company specializes in high performance and technologically advanced denim. Try them for yourself! The stretch and the 98% shape retention allows for you to move freely and comfortably. Coming with a variety of cuts, washes and weights, this brand should become a staple in your wardrobe.

Good for all body types but petite frames might like the lower rises better. Sizes 24-31 with a $265-$280 pricepoint

Three styles, Four washes (Emma comes in a black!), Four pairs of new jeans you need.

P A I G E

The namesake collection by Paige Adams- Geller started in 2004, when the market needed a female perspective on how to perfect jeans for women. She has created the ultimate jeans for women, they feel amazing with their transcend fabric that allows you to stretch, without stretching out. The higher price point is because of the quality fabrics that are made in America, LA to be exact.

Good for all body types, great for curves - runs 24-31, $288-$305.

Hoxton High rise ultra skinny: High rise waist with a front rise of 10” and a leg opening of 10 1/4”  Comes in a black wash or a dark navy blue. This is a staff favourite, you will leave in these jeans as they hold everything in nicely and can be dressed up or down. I repeat, a must have.

Margot: The highest rise of all! Skinny all the way down, this 70’s high rise revival with an 11” rise, transcend fabric and all in a cool true blue.

Verdugo Ultra Skinny: This season coming in a smoke grey, this ultra skinny in transcend fabric provides a slimming silhouette. It's mid rise, fitted from the hip to the leg opening, which is just by the ankle. 

LEVI'S

The epitome of the classic American style since the 70’s, the brand is having a huge moment right now and you’re going to want to get a pair before they’re gone.
Affordable price point, great washes, comfortable fabrics and made in a sustainable practice as they are part of the Better Cotton Initiative.
In summer it's all about their jean shorts or the classic 501’s. For fall though we’ve introduced these new classics

Great for all body types, can size up or down for desired looks with these jeans. 24-31 sizing, price point $100-$225

710 Super Skinny Jean in Smoke story – a grey blue wash that is so refreshing, stretch heavy denim, mid rise and our skinniest leg opening at 9.5”

505 C Cropped- a mid to low rise that is slim cut with a straighter leg opening of 14 3/4s. Distressed and in a lighter blue, these are the jeans you will be seeing everywhere. Think they're too summery? False! Just layer with thick knits and layers to give it a fall feel.

When in doubt, wear denim. Jeans are a girls best friend if you have the right pair, they are worth the investment into a premium pair. Come in and try them for yourself!
