The snow has finally melted, and the blossoms are starting to show - that must mean that the best time to be in Kelowna is finally upon us. Festival and concert lineups are being released, every winery in town is hosting an event, and there are networking and gala events every week. It's time to be social again Kelowna, so RSVP attending, purchase that weekend pass, and get out there!
Floral is still in folks, and if you can get this print in a lightweight fabric, you’ll be winning during outdoor summer festival season.
Floral is not just for females. A subtle floral pattern screams summer vibes, yet still has a masculine feel. We say the brighter the better, but that’s just us.
If you’re really trying to channel your inner boho-coachella-babe, try a flowy pant or skirt to keep cool and still stay chic.
And we can’t stress this enough, you can never have too many sun dresses!
You almost can’t pack for a festival without including some form of denim, males especially.
Wearing ripped jeans and/or a denim jacket is the easiest way to incorporate fashion with festivals.
Let's not forget to pay homage to those who have rocked before us. A pair of distressed or ripped jeans will instantly raise your outfit to rocker status.
Sometimes it’s tough to find a cute overcoat or jacket if you’re heading out on the town in the evening when it cools off. This long layer look is the perfect solution, and can be casual or dressy, depending how you style it.
A crisp white pant with a light coloured jacket is dressy enough to be worn to dinner or a networking event, but casual enough to catch an outdoor show.
For the boys, a cardigan doesn’t have to mean business casual. Substituting a long layered sweater instead of a jacket keeps the outfit together indoors and outdoors.
Want that versatile summer bag? Try a wicker tote - great for the farmers market, the beach or paired with a summer dress!
Mid-sized handbags are great for keeping all your necessities, but small enough to carry around all day and night.
There are some great Canadian companies coming out with both faux and genuine leather handbags that look sleek, smart and stylish.
Cue the prints.
The standard button up has been one of the only choices for men when it comes to dressing up, but for the hip, risk taker, a printed shirt is a great option to give an outfit some more pizazz.
