Trends To Wear: Animal Prints

Trends To Wear: Animal Prints

22nd Aug 2019

 —— Animal Print Trend: Fall 2019 ——  Animal prints are the new neutrals and continue to be an on-trend investment this season. From catwalks to sidewalks, women are flaunting jackets, coats and accessories in dramatic leopard, snakeskin and even cow prints. But let’s be honest, while we love seeing the animal kingdom incorporated in fashion, not all of us have the courage to go bold with our everyday outfits. Don't worry; we're here to help! This edit is spot on to help you incorporate the jungle life without looking too wild.   1. Balance the Bold Patterns with Solid Colours The easiest trick to pull off a bold animal print is to pair it down with solid bottoms. With holiday dinners and get-togethers coming up, we suggest pairing our  Cheetah Print Tie Neck Shirt in tonal grey with our Pleather Trim Ponte Pant. We love the delicate neckline tie and blurred print that add an elegant femininity to this bold print. Complete this look with neutral heels and minimal accessories to create an effortlessly on-trend, ready for anything, outfit.           2. Keep It Timeless In fashion, animal print never seems to go out of style so our suggestion is to invest in a classic silhouette with a wild print. Our favourite is the  Leopard Print Jacquard Cardigan. Incredibly soft and comfy with an over-sized silhouette, this must-have long topper has what it take …

Mother Nature has finally blessed us with sunshine and that means it’s time to start living in dresses. We, at Northern Reflections, are big fans of the effortless look that summer dresses offer. Be it a flowy maxi dress, a casual black dress or a lightweight denim dress – there’s no easier (and quicker) way to look stylish and put together than throwing on a dress!

Northern Reflections + Lonny Doherty

Northern Reflections + Lonny Doherty

18th Apr 2019

    Those who know Northern Reflections know that at the heart of everything we design is our uninhibited love for nature, especially, our very own Canadian landscape. Spanning all seasons, collections and styles – Our team of in-house designers has a way of incorporating beautiful symbols of Canadian nature into wearable works of art and on-trend fashion pieces. So, it was only instinctive that, for something as special as our Iconic Vintage Logo Collection, we’d partner with someone who understands and appreciates nature as much (and as well) as we do. We met Lonny Doherty, a celebrated Canadian artist, during the UNTAMED THINGS group art exhibition in Toronto, Ontario in September 2017. The show was a collection of paintings inspired by retracing the steps of Tom Thomson one hundred years after his untimely and mysterious death. We were immediately drawn in by Lonny’s interpretation of the Canadian landscape and his obvious connection to nature. Doherty’s 2001 piece Warm Cloud Tangle, was ranked in the top ten of International Artist Magazine competition. But it’s his mesmerizing depiction of ‘Canisbay Lake Algonquin Park’ that caught our attention and now provides a beautiful backdrop to our Iconic Vintage Logo Collection marketing campaign. Just as we strive to do with our quality and modern pieces, Lonny also aims to celebrate nature and bring it into people’s everyday lives. Lonny describes his deeply-moving thoughts on t …

    34 years ago, we started something special — a journey that took us through decades of trends, an era of technology influx and a change in a millennium. And just as the world changed around us – we evolved too; except the important things have stood the test of time — our commitment to building a modern yet timeless, quality wardrobe for you and of course, our love for all things inspired by nature. Throughout these years, we’ve carefully maintained the balance between staying true to our Canadian roots and incorporating runway-inspired trends into your wardrobe. Those who know us know that our clothes go beyond age, occupation, ethnicity, and all other ways that define people. For us, it has always been (and will always be) about fashion and fit – without compromise. We opened our first store in 1985 and since then our exclusive prints, rich colour palette and easy-to-wear styles have made a lasting connection with Canadian women.

Today, there are more than 155 Northern Reflections’ stores coast to coast with exceptional service and a round-the-clock e-store to help our customers shop from the comfort of their home.
