When you live and work in Vancouver, you have to juggle a busy career and your personal life. I totally get it and how challenging it can be to balance these two aspects while remaining stylish AND professional at the same time - but who says that you can’t do both?

Searching for the perfect outfit that’s comfortable and fashionable can be time-consuming, so I've put together a guide for August fashion in Vancouver. I want to help you look and feel confident in whatever you wear, whether it's for a video conference, lunch meeting, or a day at the office.

Summer Dresses

The summer calls for breezy and comfortable outfits, and what better choice than dresses? Right now you can easily pull off dresses that are airy, yet chic. Go for fabrics like cotton, linen or rayon that are not too tight-fitting. Dresses with floral prints, stripes, and polka dots are great picks to add a pop of colour to your wardrobe. You can accessorize with simple jewelry pieces like metal hoops and bracelets for a finishing touch.


Blouses are versatile pieces of clothing that can elevate any look. In August, go for light and comfortable fabrics like silk or chiffon. Pair them with solid or printed skirts or even denim bottoms for an effortlessly stylish look, Complete the look with a pair of pumps or flats that complement the colour of your blouse!

Comfortable Pants

Gone are the days of tight-fitting pants during the sweltering summer! Loose-fitting pants like culottes or wide-leg trousers are welcome choices for professional Vancouver women this season.  Pair them with a tucked-in blouse or dressy t-shirt for a polished, yet easygoing look. You can play around with different colours and textures when it comes to pants to keep the outfits exciting.

Vancouver’s August weather can be unpredictable, calling for comfortable yet stylish outerwear options. Blazers and light jackets not only make for great statement pieces but they also come in handy during chilly days. You can choose from many options available in the stores, from blazers in pastel and bold colours to denim jackets – there’s something for everyone’s taste.
