Here’s who served up some #shoplocal winter wardrobe inspo.

Just because the holidays are over, doesn’t mean the momentum of #shoplocal should end. From Lydia Okello in L’Intervalle to Donté Colley in 4ye, here are a few friendly faces we saw sporting Canadian brands on social this week while making the case for cozy chic.

Donté Colley in 4ye

Internet boyfriend and positivity advocate Donté Colley took us on an intimate night walk through Toronto recently, and he observed a few of the city’s landmarks while wearing an eye-catching slogan scarf from Brampton-based streetwear brand, 4ye. The accessory’s message – “4ye for the community” – is especially potent given our current COVID situation and the loneliness and distance we’re all experiencing.

Lydia Okello in L’Intervalle

Putting the “win” in winter lewk, writer and model Lydia Okello paired bold boots from Montreal footwear label L’Intervalle with a decidedly downtime outfit of leggings, a thick-knit sweater, puffer and vibrant toque. And we couldn’t agree more with their post’s closing line: “Also, reminding myself that a fat bod in casual clothes is just as ~off duty chic~ as a thin supermodel wearing the same thing.”

Mosha Lundström Halbert in Jenny Bird & Therma Kōta

Mosha Lundström Halbert – fashion editor and co-founder of the outerwear brand, Therma Kōta – not only gave us major ice queen energy wearing a style from her label’s collection. She was also wearing chunky chain necklaces from Toronto-based accessory line Jenny Bird, proving that more is indeed more when it comes to Canadian design.
