How To: Dress for Canada Day
Well, fellow Canadians, it’s almost upon us. The weekend we look forward to all summer; where we get to spend time and celebrate with friends and family and forget about work for just one weekend. That’s right, Canada Day is just around the corner and we here at Toronto City Gossip just can’t wait.
There are so many fun choices and activities to do on Canada Day and I’ve compiled a list with corresponding outfit choices you could wear, all patriotic-themed. I’ve kept all the outfit choices in red and white, but added some black, gold, and silver here and there so you don’t look like a walking Canadian flag! Also, the great thing about dressing patriotically is that there are different reds (red-orange, pink-red, light red) and whites (ivory, off-white) to mix and match with, no two people will be wearing the exact same colours.
Bottoms: Lauren Ralph Lauren
Cover Up: Melissa Odabash
Beach Bag: New Look
Sunglasses: Just Cavalli
Speaking as someone who does not have a pool, it’s always super fun to get invited to someone else’s in the summer, especially on a fun day like Canada Day. It’s a great time to meet friends of friends and socialize and soak up the sunrays. For this activity, try a mismatched polka dot bikini. A gold beach bag and cat eye glasses add the perfect hint of chic, and grab a light cover up to throw on after the pool.
Dress: Anne Klein
Watch: Karl Lagerfeld
Sunglasses: Forever 21
Another great way to spend time with friends and/or loved ones is to have a backyard barbeque. This red and white dress is the perfect go-to for a day outside, as it’ll keep you cool (because of the sleeveless aspect) but also keep you looking stylish. Pair it with comfy wedges and white sunnies.
Skirt: Antonio Marras
Top: LaPina by David Helwani
Bracelets: Alex and Ani
Sandals: Tory Burch
Whether with fam or friends, Canada Day brunch down at the beaches in Toronto is so much fun. First, sit on a patio and take in the gorgeous weather, and then there’s so many cute shops to browse through while you walk off your delicious meal. You can never go wrong with a maxi skirt, crop top and sandals for something like this, and top off the outfit with a cross-body bag.
Top: Calvin Klein
Belt: J. Crew
Pumps: Nine West
Clutch: Cole Haan
Lipstick: Sephora Lustre Matte Long Wear in Coral
Toronto clubs always have celebrations and deals for Canada Day, so be sure not to miss them in this all-white outfit with hints of red. Make your outfit pop with splashes of orange-red in your shoes and lips, and keep the celebration going with a sparkly belt.
Dress: Alice + Olivia
Flats: Enzo Angiolini
Bag: Franco Sarto
If you’re partying all day, you may want to just take it easy later on with a casual dinner with your significant other. Nothing says laid back quite like a black and white shift dress. But it is Canada Day after all, so add some pops of red in there in your flats and bag. Keep your accessories super simple with a lightweight long necklace and bangle.
Jeans: Buffalo David Bitton
Necklace: Kenneth Cole New York
Shoes: Steve Madden
Clutch: Jessica McClintock
Whether you are going to a quiet setting with a friend or two, or taking over the downtown nightlife with a group of people, a bar is always a good way to go. Try a simple combo of white skinnies and a red peplum top paired with black shoes and clutch.
