In this new series, we demonstrate how our most avid readers sport the trends in our magazine. Look for it on What’s Right Now every weekend, and be sure to try out a look or two yourself and tweet us a photo @InStyle using #inspiredbyinstyle. This week, we’re featuring Jackie Silla of Style My Dreams. 

If there’s one trend I’ve been hesitant in trying out it’s the sporty pants style. This new must-have seemed too casual for daytime wear, but after coming across “Clothes We Love: Sporty Pants” in the September issue, I was inspired to pick up a pair. I chose a rayon fabric to give the pants a dressier feel, and added a blazer for structure. And guess what? It turns out I love these pants because not only are they super comfy but are also completely versatile: this…

Outfit Of The Day: Leather Leggings

Green top & leather ootd 5

So, I don’t want to jinx myself here but lately the weather has been rather nice. And by nice, I mean no jacket required nice! Which isn’t the norm for us but hey I won’t complain because I know whats coming around the corner :PGreen top & leather ootd 3

Are you guys still loving the leather leggings trend? I know I am! In fact I’m on the hunt for a new pair. Initially when I bought these I wasn’t sure if I was really going to like them or get much use out of them. So Naturally, I opted for cheap pair…no buyers remorse here! Turns out, I love them! I find leather leggings ( faux or real ) are very versatile and surprisingly comfortable. You can pretty much wear them with anything and look great. Pair them with a chunky knit, sheer blouse, tank top, t-shirt & blazer or even under a dress. The possibilities are endless!

Current Obsession: Banana Republic’s New Look

Banana Republic collageOh my oh my!!! Banana Republic has gotten a major facelift thanks to Marissa Webb! Yes, I realize this is old news but I can’t stop obsessing over some of the new pieces from their latest look book.Banana Republic collage 2

Webb joined the company this past April as creative director and executive vice president of design. Not only does Marissa have her own contemporary label but she also served as J.Crew’s head designer for more than ten years. Thus making her a fab choice to add a little high fashion sass to the brand. Honestly I’ve never really been a big fan of their clothes, I found them to be a little too “office wear” and not in a good way. 😴 But that’s just my opinion! However, this latest collection is anything but that! Gone is that all too familiar and boring aesthetic, the new look is bold, daring and edgy.Banana Republic collage 3Banana Republic collage 4Source

This is the first collection since Webb joined the company, although she didn’t design this collection… Clearly you can see her influence on the brand. Sadly, we will have to wait until summer 2015 to see her first collection from concept to store but this is one blogger who is very excited to see what she has planned!

OOTD: Mellow Yellow

Hi guys! I’m out west in Alberta visiting some family and loving the warm weather they’re having. Just the other day, it was 30 degrees (celsius)!! Gotta love fall and the last bits of summer weather. Even though all the leaves over here have already started to fall :( but I did manage to find the most beautiful park in the city of Lethbridge called Henderson Lake Park. I could seriously live in this park. So beautiful!

When I’m travelling to visit family, I like to keep things simple, casual and chic. My wardrobe consists mainly of denim, leggings, tops and comfy sweaters. I use my accessories to dress up my look… And yes, I may or may not be wearing too many rings here! Lol!! I really love yellow, it’s one of my happy colours!! Mustard yellow is such a great choice for fall, it can easily be worn with warm and cool colours. And looks great against just about any skin tone :)
