LOOKCITY: On Craft Brew Redux, Dressing For Parties & Sporting Yoga Pants In Dubai

December 31, 2012.

by Robyn Yager | The local looks above: 1. Striped socks and a pair of leather Sebago boat shoes. 2. A varsity jacket with leather sleeves and a glass of bubbly; holiday dressing at its best. 3. Still not over the printed pants trend, especially in damask. 4. One can do no wrong wearing a pair of sneakers to an opening. 5. A denim jacket is one thing, a black denim jacket DIYed with a plethora of patches is an entirely different animal. 6. Liquid leggings and black ankle boots are a Vancouver winter staple. 7. A good hat = instant style. 8. Leopard print is the boldest print in the book.

The end of the world was a total bust. It was still a good thing that the editors over at Style.com put together a slideshow of some of their sartorial picks for the apocalypse (just in case). It features past runway designs by Rick Owens, Margiela, Alaia, and more. See it here.

Best dressed beer award goes to Central City Brewing for their Red Racer beer cans which recently underwent a sleek makeover. Central City Brewing wanted to stay true to their roots while also making the brand design more recognizable, simple and elegant. Excellent design and tasty beer = craft brew done right.

Thinking of traveling in the new year? Here’s a great article from The Genteel about Dressing Like a Guest in a different country because I highly doubt yoga pants would fly in Dubai.

Still looking for that perfect New Year’s or staff party dress ensemble? Why don’t you check out Oliver & Lilly’s over on South Granville for a fantastic selection of adorable dresses, tops, and bottoms. My pick would be the Heidi Merrick Chevalier top with their Steven Alan Danny pant in red and a pair of black pumps. Keeping it minimal this year.

While we’re on the topic of dressing for parties, if you’re in the mood for an alternative to the ever-popular sequined dress, Erica Lam over at The Style Spy has put together a list of accessories and pieces to replace the annual hunt for the perfect sparkly cocktail dress. Why not try out a pair of leather shorts or a fitted tuxedo jacket instead?

Have you been to Hach on Main Street? Go! The ladies there are super sweet and they stock everything from planners and stationary to shoes and clothes. Check them out at 197 East 17th Avenue and Main.

Finally, something for the guys. Montecristo published an inside look into Vancouver menswear brand, Wings + Horns, leading me to their Spring/Summer 2013 collection. If there’s two things I love it’s local design and menswear. Mix the two together and you’ve got my attention plus it’s got me desperately pining for some sunny weather in the distant future.
