Street Chic in Newfoundland

Alyssa Cutler, Miss Teenage Avalon 2017

If you’ve ever been to Newfoundland, you will notice one thing. Our weather changes within minutes. One minute you will get a sun tan, and the next you will be caught in the rain and fog.  With this weather, it’s hard to be in style for the summer, but there’s a few fashion trends any Newfoundlander (or visitor) can wear.  

Street Chic in Newfoundland

The male model you see below is wearing dark pants, a colored shirt, and matched it with colored shoes. This stylish outfit is perfect for everyday use, whether you’re going downtown with friends or on a date with a special someone. The fitted pants give you a professional yet casual look that appeals to others. The shirt and shoes is where you can shine your personally and show the world who you really are. Your shirt can be as bright as our Jelly Bean houses or as dull as our Newfoundland fog. 

Can’t wait to try out this style? Check out male shoes at West 49! You’re looking for cutting edge sneakers that are usually flat with a white base. Itching to get a pair of the slick dark pants? Step into Bluenotes and try their amazing new summer styles. Want the perfect shirt? Check out the Boathouse! More into the button up? Swing into Urban Outfitters for a variety of colors 

The female model is wearing two different outfits. 

Street Chic in Newfoundland

Our first one is perfect for the girls who aren’t afraid of the cold. This blue outfit is adorable for the summer. It’s light weight and breathable. Pairing it with a white bow in your hair to match your white shoes just upgrades the entire outfit to a 10/10! But wait, what about the rain? A classic umbrella never goes astray in Newfoundland. Whether it’s warm outside or cold outside, the umbrella is always in use! You can fun with them as well. By painting on your umbrella’s and or by getting multicolored ones it’s a way for every girl to express themselves while looking unique and stylish.

The second outfit you see in all ages. Nothing says summer more than shorts and a tank topsYour classic black shorts are something every girl should have in their closet. It’s the most particular thing we own whether we are wearing them under our dresses, at sports events, or just on any summer day. When it comes to colorful shirts, girls and boys are the same. When it comes down to fashion, there’s one thing we really want to do, let our clothes speak for us. Bright shirt, bold colors,

and risky patterns is the number one way we can scream out who we are.  

This female model is covering her shoulders with a light weight shay. Most times it is necessary to have because it can keep you both warm and cold in the right moments. Most shays are dark colors with a pattern. This brings together your outfit and makes a bold statement that you dying to say. And of course, all the colors in your outfit compliments each other because the statement you’re trying to say is never “I threw this on while I was still tired.” To finish up this outfit you need one last thing. A bow to match your shoes! Again, it’s a white bow with white shoes. What can go wrong with that?

Wondering how to get your hands on these cute little outfits? Check out Bluenotes to get your matching sky blue skirt and shirt. While you’re there, check out their colorful shirt selection and stop on over to see their patterned shays. Need a classic pair of black shorts? Drop into Ardene’s and go through their jaw dropping selection. Who knew there were so many options! Don’t forget to quickly scan through their accessories to find different colored bows. Need a new pair of stylish shoes? Check out Soft Moc’s female shoes!  

Hope to see you in style soon!

Sibling Fashion Clash in Lawn, Nfld

By Bailey, Miss Teen Newfoundland and Labrador 2017

We often look at style in a very black and white fashion, we see stylish individuals as those in tall heels and flouncy skirts, however, we don’t usually recognize style as soccer cleats and jerseys. Growing up with a younger sister who is the exact opposite of me allowed me to understand that just because not only our styles (like our personalities) clash doesn’t mean that one of us is more stylish than the other.Kennedy has soccer style - sports fashion in Victoria BC

Meet Kennedy, my 12-year sister, a grade eight student at Holy Name of Mary Academy in my hometown of Lawn. She is the starting striker of the local peninsula soccer team; when she’s not practicing her shot, she’s playing a game. Because of this, Kennedy lives in soccer uniforms and running shoes, that’s her style.

You can see her on my absolute favorite street in my tiny town, Harbour Drive, which runs through the heart of Lawn. I love this street so much because it holds so much history as it sits right on the edge of the stages and docks that supported the fishing industry, an industry that supported my community for many, many years.

Fashion clash on harbour drive in LawnKennedy is sporting a rather serious look in this photo and is decked out completely in Adidas; the black shorts and shirt are made of a light-weight, breathable material that makes busy days and practices more comfortable. Of course, no soccer game is complete without her favorite Adidas socks, with the signature stripe and to add some color to this ensemble she paired it was these lime green and bright orange, Messi cleats. You can pick up Kennedy’s entire outfit from your local Sports Chek. The caged rocks you see pictured behind Kennedy also hold great significance to me as I painted them as a child, with some of my best friends as an art project, just another reason to love this street.

Although Kennedy is much more comfortable in her shorts and socks she tried on my style for size and stepped out in this gorgeous floral dress from Nobel U. The beautiful blue and pink light up against her dark complexion. The background of this photo captures the spirit of my town perfectly and allows me to show off our beautiful history.

coral cream dress Of course, I couldn’t miss out on an opportunity to show off one of my favorite dresses from La Scala, a brand that is available for purchase at Pseduio, Envy and online. This dress is a beautiful coral-orange color with an eyelet lace bodice and a heavy skater skirt that is perfect for twirling around. I’ve paired it with a cream, rhinestone, floral shaped necklace from Ardene; the creamy beige color contrasts nicely with the bright dress. To finish it off I’m wearing cream and floral heels from Call It Spring, the floral print is a lovely mix of blush, coral, and raspberry.

Although my sister and I have widely different styles, we both love how we dress, we feel comfortable in our own personal fashion choices. No matter what we wear or how we choose to express ourselves, we always remember that we are our own kind of beautiful and our styles are simply a reflection of that, the most important lesson is to understand that our beauty lies beyond our style and beyond what is on the outside but lives within who were are as people.

Three Times Chic in Stephenville Crossing Newfoundland

by Madison: Miss Teen Western Newfoundland 2017
In my hometown of Stephenville Crossing, we have one busy street which is coincidentally called Main Street.  And by ‘busy’, I mean you may see one or two people walking around. Since it’s so small, I’d have to stay out there all day waiting for someone with a booming outfit to come along. So I chose instead to cover three of my own looks. I like to think I have my own style, one that comes as a mixture of my personality and what I enjoy in today’s fashion.

I’ve always experimented with my outfits since my mom started letting me play dress up in her closet. I’d smother my face with the brightest lipstick I could find, accessorize with a pair of cool sunglasses and a feather boa: then have my own little photo-shoot. With that being said, I put together two inexpensive outfits and one that’s more name brand. I do lots of shopping from inexpensive stores and thrift stores. Remember that you can look beautiful and expensive even when you’re on a budget!

My first outfit is one of my favourites. Instead of heading straight to borrow from my mom’s closet, I went for dad’s! I love oversized shirts because they are so vintage and cute to style. My dad grew up in my hometown, and kept this softball jersey from his old Stephenville Crossing team. I’ve ‘borrowed’ it from him because I love navy blue and button ups (win win)!

On my head I have a sweet headband that I got from for $6.44! They ship super quick, within in a week. and the prices are so good! About the boots; remember how I was talking about stealing from closets? No, they’re not from my dad’s closet as you might think, they are my mom’s.

Madison Fashion in NewfoundlandMy second outfit came mostly from one of my favourite stores, Fashion Nova, and a little bit from my Mom’s closet again. Those cute blue cowboy boots are my mom’s but I believe she got them from Byrnes’ Shoes & Sportswear. The gorgeous tie-up blue and white striped top can be found on the Fashion Nova website. It’s on sale for $12.61 until Monday, August 7th! On to the shorts; I LOVE these shorts, they are my absolute favourite. Fashion Nova has the nicest shorts and jeans. Everything fits just right universally (meaning they make your booty look cute no matter your size)!

My third outfit holds the closest place in my heart because it strikes my personality to a T! My fashion style is effortless, like I’ve just rolled out of bed in a way. Either way, I am in love with my Juicy Couture track suit. I’ve been looking for one for ages and guys, these are crazy expensive, but when I went to Sears I got it 50% off!
Woohoo! Onto the furry slides… I love these so much, I have about 6 different colours. Pink is my favourite colour of course. You can pick up slides almost anywhere since they’re so in right now, but I got mine from  Slides are the best because they’re really comfy and they can go with anything. If you don’t believe me, just try it. It’ll make your outfits look casual, but casual as in a sleeping beauty kind of way.

Self-love is limitless. Dressing up in your cutest outfit just to lay around the house is not strange, it’s empowering. Give a girl the right pair of shoes and the perfect shade of lipstick, and she will take over the world. Take the time to figure yourself out. Find out what you like to wear. You’ll really learn to love yourself once you know yourself a little better. Experimentation is key.
