A) LOOK FAB IN FUCHSIA
Maje, Yorkdale mall, $455
“It looks like a bomber jacket that grew into this little dress.”

B) FOLKLORIC FEEL
Snapdragon, 604 Mt. Pleasant Rd., $325
“It’s got the tassels and the ties. I love the embroidery and it has beading too.”

C) PYJAMA PARTY
Sandro, Yorkdale mall, $425
“I love the floral fabrication, and I love the fact that the buttons are almost invisible, so it sort of begs to be worn open.”

D) LUXE LINEN
Andrews, Bayview Village, $695
“Smythe really knows how to cut a jacket. I really love the combination of gold buttons with the pale pink.”

E) RETRO ROBE
Aritzia, 50 Bloor St. W., $235
“A very elegant piece with a retro floral print, it looks like something out of the ’40s. It’s very romantic.”

F) COSY CASHMERE
Canopy Blue, 2582 Yonge St., $399 
“I love Line knitwear. This piece is very cosy for a cool summer night.”

G) THE SUMMER OF STRIPES
Maska, Promenade mall, $103.60
“We can never get enough stripes, and this fabric has a luxurious satin feel.”

H) METALLIC MUSE
Milli, 231 Avenue Rd., $1,295
“There’s something very artful about this piece. Very funky, an attention grabber.”

I) SILKY SMOOTH
Andrews, Bayview Village, $369
