It’s spring! Let’s rejoice by busting out that denim dress we’ve been dying to wear. Aside from its epic wearability, denim is one of the biggest trends this season. It’s the one material that keeps revamping itself, fueling our obsession with new prints, washes and construction. And of course it can be paired with almost anything. I am obsessed with Alexa Chung’s pairing of the combat jacket and denim dress. Chic with a grunge twist!

As the weather cools down, the layers pile on. From combat jackets to fall coats, the streets of Toronto are flooded with cozy fall faves. Our fashion columnist, Sabina Sohail, scoured her college campus in search of the most stylish jackets.
Do: Combat jacket
Cassandra Juradinho, 22 — Once again, the combat jacket does not disappoint. It pretty much goes with everything — even a pink chiffon top. Pairing it with the briefcase bag is almost too perfect.
Do: A pop of colour
Maria Siassina, 20 — As much as we love the dull colours of fall, it’s nice to see a little bit of colour every now and then! The blue and purple stripes on her blazer really help enhance this black-and-white ensemble.
Jeyan Jeganathan, 21 — Vests may be too formal for school (like that’s stopping anyone) but a vest-hoodie adds the “cool” element to your look.
Do: Vampy shades Read more…
No Miley! What made you do it? I totally see what Miley Cyrus was going for here, but unfortunately her look falls flat. We all have style we’d like to forget — don’t get me started on overalls in the 90s — but luckily our photo evidence doesn’t go national.
These high-waisted acid wash jeans have a retro feel — especially when you pair them with an 80s-style Madonna top — but there’s a reason why they’re out of style. Like Jessica Simpson and Obama before her, Cyrus’ jeans don’t work. I think they would have been better if they were a darker wash and paired with a back-to-basics top, but I appreciate that she went for it.
