Congratulations to our Upper Canada Mall gift card winner, Laura!
is the season of the skirt. Our motto, if you love it, buy it – we’ll make sure you rock it! From dressing it up to dressing it down, Upper Canada Malls gorgeous retailers have you covered.

We have all been in a store staring wistfully at a piece of clothing, loving it, wanting it, but then thinking

  •  Where will I wear this?
  • Will I get enough wear out of this?
  • What do I wear with this?

Been there, done that! We completely understand the dilemma, but we can help! Wherever you are headed, from backyard barbecue to summertime soirée, we promise this skirt will fit the occasion!

Looking Lovely in Lemon: How fun is this Banana Republic lemon print full skirt?! Well, we love it! We just adore a full skirt for its chicness and timeless style; the banded waist and on-seam pockets are the icing on the cake! It’s definitely a statement skirt, but we promise no matter what the occasion, this skirt will be a crowd-favourite.

Dressing-down this lemon skirt is so easy! Put on a white tank of your choice – we recommend one that is easy to tuck into the skirt. Metallic sandals are an absolute must-have this season and go oh-so-perfectly with this skirt. Oh, and, don’t forget your sunglasses – these aviators are pretty and practical!

This skirt is so elegant that dressing it up is a piece of cake! Put on your favourite white blouse whether it’s loose or fitted, a white blouse will always complete your look. Now, you need shoes! These light pink pump sandals are perfect! This look ties together fun and elegance impeccably! If you’re happy with your look, stop there, but we always recommend a statement necklace. This beautiful pastel necklace brings more colour to the outfit, while also tying in the gorgeous pink pumps.

Skirts add an instant chicness to your look. There are so many ways to style your skirt, making you ready for any occasion! So next time you come across a bold skirt that you love, don’t hesitate. We say, if you love it, buy it!

    I find the first “fun and flirty” look to fit right in with my personality. It’s easy and breezy and the neutral items paired with this gorgeous skirt really let it be the focal point.

    I like the Summetime Soirée-the entire look is totally me-best part of this outfit, it takes you from daytime into night. After work dinner/drinks-this ensemble is a winner! Classy and sophisticated without a doubt. Today’s working woman needs functionality, versatility and must look phenomenal while making it all happen. This is it for me!7
