Jaclyn Genovese: What I’m Wearing at Toronto Fashion Week

Jaclyn Genovese, Owner of Toronto boutique jacflash, shows us what she wore every day during World MasterCard Fashion Week SS14.

What I’m wearing: Fashion Week Day 1
Today’s chillier temperatures encouraged me to layer up. I paired my Style Stalker, Baller jacket with a cropped sweater and a high-waisted drawstring pant. I love the laid-back new trend of wearing a jacket over the shoulders instead of the more constricting approach of wearing it on and done up. To add a little glam to my sportier ensemble, I wore a handmade Cara Cheung tangled chain necklace and Jeffrey Campbell Solitaire pumps. All items are available at www.jacflash.net.

Style Stalker, Baller Coat $360

Unseen, Drawstring Pants $95
Cara Cheung, Tangled Chain Necklace $160
Jeffrey Campbell, Black Solitaire shoe $145


What I’m Wearing: Fashion Week Day 2
My trend of choice this fall is the pencil skirt. It is such a versatile piece and a must-have for every YP’s wardrobe. To add some edge to this more conservative ensemble, I matched it with a Capulet Moto Jacket and a floppy hat. My favourite part about this jacket is the open back and quilted arm detailing. Adding a simple and classic heel balances the patterns in the skirt and the special features on the jacket. All items are available at www.jacflash.net.

Capulet, Cropped Leather Moto Jacket $585
Unseen, Sheer White Blouse $85
Coco Shon, Snake Pattern Pencil Skirt $95

What I’m Wearing: Fashion Week Day 3
Rain, rain, go away. To deal with the precipitation today, I opted for a long, over-sized trench with a pair of cozy, destroyed boyfriend jeans. Donning these metal-capped pumps and an engineer cap creates chicness to a more casual look and brings out a little rock ‘n roll. All items are available at www.jacflash.net.

Unseen, Sheer White Blouse $85
Dressroom, Destroyed Boyfriend Jean $115

What I’m Wearing: Fashion Week Day 4
One of spring’s biggest trends has more moderately made its way into fall. The crop top is back. To spice up a more sophisticated trouser and jacket, I added this cropped leather bustier. The bold contrast of this black and white ensemble becomes even more elegant and subdued when combined with a softening gray. All items are available at www.jacflash.net.

Unseen, Leather Bustier $115
Coco Shon, Dress Pant $135
