From Runway to Real Life

From Runway to Real Life Luxury Shopping

Do you ever check out the runway fashions and wonder how you’re supposed to translate those over-the-top trends into your everyday wardrobe? We’ve taken it upon ourselves to help out our fellow fashionistas by translating the latest fashions trends from runway shows into prêt-à-porter for the everyday woman.

All you have to do is find your favourite looks. Start with the Rakuten Clothing, Shoes and Accessories stores and you can check out our Luxury stores for more options.


Suits are great for the office, but taken apart, the pieces can also be a great way to dress up or down everything from your evening or weekend wear. Try a blazer with your favourite jeans for date night. Or pair voluminous suit pants with a fun sweatshirt for brunch with the ladies.

Where to shop: H&M and Hudson’s Bay


Autumn in Canada screams for plaid. It’s practically a law! If a plaid suit isn’t your thing and you prefer a more understated look, opt for plaid accent pieces. Think scarves, headbands, camisole – even socks and stockings.

Where to shop: Ann Taylor and ASOS

Dark Florals

Everyone associates florals with spring and summer. But dark florals are in for the fall and we can’t get enough! Instead of the pastels, think deep, bold reds, blues, and pinks set atop a dark background. Dark florals will also make for a great holiday party look.

Where to shop: BCBG and Equipment

Long Coats

Aside from functionality for our cold Canadian winters, long coats bring in the cozy factor. Snuggle up in a duvet coat or woolen pea coat that are equal parts warm and stylish. Make sure yours has deep pockets in case you forgot your mitts! Also great to get a lip balm handy.

Where to shop: Mackage and Ever New


Purple is the new black and we couldn’t be happier. There’s a perfect shade for every skin tone, there’s even a hue for your hair colour.

Where to shop: Luisaviaroma and Cotton:On

Puffed Sleeves

Don’t puffed sleeves just add the je ne sais quoi to your outfit and make it a little extra? We love it for perking up office outfits and making a statement at the holiday party.

Where to shop: Intermix and Net-A-Porter

PS: don’t forget Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This is the best weekend to load up on your favourite fall and winter looks for significant savings and Cash Back.
