As you may know, I recently announced that I am an official influencer ambassador for Toronto Men’s Fashion Week on Instagram. Not only is this an exciting honour, but it truly feels like an incredible full circle moment. The first season of TOM*FW was my launch pad for my blog; and to be involved in the week’s festivities is incredibly fulfilling.
Last night was one of the biggest nights of the week, the TOM*FW Opening Party. The event was held at Rebel, Toronto. It was also personally super exciting, as it was my Sister’s first event as a blogger, aka The Prep Gal. We partied the night away with fashion friends, TOM*FW guests and the TOM*FW team.
I always have a theme for my looks for each fashion week, and being one of the younger bloggers in the City, I still have to deal with university and midterms. So my looks for this season are all very simple & utilitarian, but with little twists.
My first look for the week is in partnership with GUESS, everyone’s favourite Cali inspired brand. The brand to me is very California, with a little bit of rock and roll, but a whole lot of style.
I started my look off with a two-tone printed pullover sweater. This really set the tone of the look, with a beautiful black and white print, which could be offset with all-black pieces. I layered with my own black shirt underneath, so that the sweater could get the attention it deserves. Shop the Sweater
Well I couldn’t be wearing a GUESS look without their world famous denim! I selected a black denim from the brand’s Freeform line. The freeform denim is designed so that you can move with ease; with additional benefits including incredible recovery while controlling moisture! In other words, you need a pair of these in your life! Shop GUESS Denim (Similar Styles)
I topped off the look with a GUESS Tomlin overcoat, which I purchased this past Holiday Season! It’s very rock and roll, while being super easy to pair! I love the military inspired design and large metallic buttons. Definitely a must-have if you’re still looking for a stylish overcoat. It is also available in a beautiful heather green!

To complete the look, I wore black dress penny loafers, a minimal wrist watch and reflective sunnies!
