What It Is: You know that really effortless, chic style that some people have that make you think I could never look like that? I feel like those women (and men) are shopping at places like Oak + Fort, a brand started in Vancouver that specializes in simple, timeless pieces with a modern, minimalist edge. Crafted from quality materials like linen, cotton and leather, their line covers men, women, and all sorts of accessories including bags, hats, scarves and jewelry. The look is very Euro-chic, with nary a pattern in sight, sleek silhouettes, and a primarily neutral palette. With over a dozen stores across Canada (and now the U.S.) you can also shop this brand in person, plus the prices are pretty reasonable too!
Who It’s For: Your chic little sister, to scope out a must-have it girl birthday gift. Your stylish spouse, as an anniversary gift they’ll get years out of. Yourself, to update that work wardrobe!
What It Costs: Most pieces are under $150 and many are under $100. Expect to pay a little more for things like outerwear.
