Oak + Fort is a retailer that has been on my radar for just under a year now. When you walk past by their store window you cannot help but notice the effortless and simplicity of their store design. Minimalism at it’s finest. Founded in 2010, they have curated uncomplicated luxury fashion that will go easy on your pocket. Not distracted by trends, they have continued to stick to their design philosophies. Did I mention that they are Canadian too? They sure are! Based out of Vancouver, Canada with multiple stores across Canada and their first US store in New York.
I love that their main focus is to show the clothes, not worrying so much about showing off the body. Playing alot with proportions and putting unconventional pieces together is something they do very well. They make basic look expensive with their exceptional tailoring. You will note that majority of their looks are completed with white sneakers. Putting comfort hand in hand with style.
From a new way to wear your turtleneck, to layering ideas, these are the style ideas I especially took note of that you can steal from Oak + Fort. These are quick tricks and tweaks you can try using what you already have in your closet. Get style inspired today!
Untucked turtleneck + cropped trousers
If you want to go for the less sexy route, this is a refreshing way to do so. We’re so used to tucking all of our shirts in that we forget that it’s feminine to leave it out too. To pull this look off, it’s best to go for a turtleneck a size bigger so it’s not snug on your hips.
Top + jumpsuit
I really love this idea of wearing a t-shirt or long sleeved under a jumpsuit. It kind of gives you a prep school uniform vibe. Oak+Fort’s website is filled with looks similar to this.
White shirt dress + white sneakers
You can never go wrong with a crisp white shirt. Pair it with some white sneakers and it’s a totally different ball game. It’s as if you just threw on your boyfriend’s shirt and some sneakers. It’s a great go to look for summer when you have nothing to wear.
Light coat + slip dress
I love a good slip dress, it’s sexy, seductive and flirty. Throw on a robe style coat over it and get ready to serve some serious bedroom style. Finish this look with some booties or strappy heels for night. Sneakers go well with this look for day.
Cropped bomber + cropped trousers
Try pairing your cropped bomber with some cropped trousers for a change. This look is unexpected, yet works so well together. It’s a great minimalist sporty look.
Cropped flared sweater set
Now this is a look I was excited to see. I love the spin they’ve put on the sweater set. Instead of the typical drawstring style, try a set that is both flared on the arms and legs.
Midi skirt + white sneakers
I’m so here for this look and it’s a look you tend to see alot of Fashion Editors wear during fashion month. Sneakers with your midi skirt is a great transitional look when commuting about. It’s comfy, clean and streetstyle worthy.
