Toronto Men’s Fashion Week on Day 1 was a bit rushed, I must admit but I guess that’s when the real talent comes in. How do I pick out an outfit in less than an hour and still manage to pull it off and look somewhat fashionable amongst the crowd of Alexander McQueen shoes and Chanel bags.

This is where basics comes in, yes I know it doesn’t sound very promising, how is a basic going to help one outdo a designer label? Well it really comes down to how you decide to dress basic up or down and how you can work with solid colours that compliment your bold statement piece.

It was a windy day and I thought why not find something that can work with the wind, well not really, if we could all think that far ahead the world would be a different place. I wanted to have a very laid back feeling and lately white seems to be my go-to colour.
