Winnipeg Free Press - Section E - - STYLE - By Ce­line Bon­neville

This first-year mu­sic stu­dent at Cana­dian Men­non­ite Univer­sity was spot­ted pick­ing up some books as she left school on Tues­day af­ter­noon, sport­ing her new back-to-school fall es­sen­tials, in­clud­ing trendy green pants and a cream lace top that she calls her fash­ion es­sen­tial. Enns’ so­phis­ti­cated, clas­sic style cor­re­sponds to the soft vi­o­lin mu­sic she plays; she’s ex­cited about go­ing to school and study­ing some­thing she en­joys.

What she wore…

Blouse and jeans — “Both are from Win­ners Polo Park. I just wanted a colourful pair of pants.” San­dals — Pay­less Ear­rings — “They are lit­tle owls and they’re from Claire’s.” Purse — Ic­ing “I like dif­fer­ent tops —they’re what I grav­i­tate to­wards when I go shop­ping. It’s bet­ter to have more tops than pants for me be­cause you start off with a base colour on the bot­tom then add tex­ture with your top.”

Style in­spi­ra­tion

“My favourite top two stores are prob­a­bly Win­ners and For­ever 21. My friend and I have a sim­i­lar style, so when­ever we go shop­ping we play off each other — I ask her ques­tions be­cause I trust her opin­ion. She’s a huge fan of Win­ners as well. You can get ev­ery­thing there for a good prices and get re­ally nice stuff.”

Fash­ion tip

“Dress in what­ever makes you feel your best. I’m not re­ally into the bright neon colours; I play vi­o­lin, so I’d say I’m more clas­sic and into pas­tels then bright colours. I usu­ally try and pick some­thing with a pat­tern on it or some­thing that has in­ter­est in­stead of just colour block­ing.”
