It has been a wild couple of weeks in the world of fashion. From New York, London, Paris, and all the way to Milan, the major Fashion Weeks are sweeping the globe with new and upcoming trends for the year ahead. We are seeing a major focus on florals, collared tops, fringes, metallics, graphic tee’s, and every shade of pink in the book.
While exploring the Danforth, we have seen a couple of these trends already in full swing. One accessory in particular is making major waves nationally, and is probably easier to spot on the Avenue than a Greek restaurant. If you haven’t seen for yourself, the Team Canada toques and mittens are everywhere you look. This Olympic collection has become a Great White North staple to accessorize any outfit. Not only is the Olympic wear practical for Canadian weather, it is also a chic way to show support for our team. Us Canadians know how treacherous our winters can be, but we still find ways to tailor our fashion despite below-freezing temperatures.
Without further ado, here are our top picks for this week’s edition of Danforth Street Style.
