"Minimalist and modern, with hippie elements" are the style bywords of Jess Way, a public relations professional based in Toronto. In her downtime she likes to keep things cool and casual. In practice, that means cropped trousers, slouchy blazers, flowy tees and high-waisted jeans. When it comes to the details, this 34-year-old has a penchant for eclectic jewelry and accessories. "I'm often wearing jewelry I find at flea markets and local vintage shops," she says. The fashion risk we presented to her was to wear a kaleidoscope of clashing prints, a far cry from her bohemian-meets-minimalist comfort zone. Her initial thoughts? "Oh my god, so many colours and patterns. I would never have thought to put this [blouse and pants] together," says the woman who has only a handful of striped tees and a few Aztec-print frocks in her closet. "It was a bit shocking and scary, but in the end I think it totally worked."
