Jeans are an eter­nal closet sta­ple, an af­ford­able and ver­sa­tile item still on the fash­ion mar­ket af­ter decades. No won­der ev­ery gen­er­a­tion has con­tin­ued to buy them since the 1950s. Molly Karp a stu­dent of the Com­mu­ni­ca­tions pro­gram at Univer­sity of Win­nipeg, is no ex­cep­tion. Karp hopes to work in pub­lic re­la­tions, “ide­ally pro­vid­ing a voice and rep­re­sen­ta­tion for a non-profit or char­i­ta­ble or­ga­ni­za­tion,” she says, stand­ing next to her bike on Portage Av­enue. “Some­thing where I’m us­ing my lan­guage skills to fa­cil­i­tate change for the bet­ter.”

What she wore...

JACKET — “Value Vil­lage; I loved it when I saw it.” BLOUSE — Three Peo­ple At­tire JEANS — “They’re J brand from Aritzia.” SHOES — Browns BRACELET — Juicy NECK­LACE — Redd Line Jew­elry BAG — “It’s Matt & Nat. I got it in Van­cou­ver when I was there on va­ca­tion with my fam­ily.”

Fash­ion es­sen­tial

“High-waisted jeans — they pull ev­ery­thing to­gether. You can make any­thing look good with a pair of jeans. I shop at Danali be­cause they have a lot of va­ri­ety. They know what they’re talk­ing about when it comes to denim. Fall hap­pens to be my fa­vorite fash­ion sea­son. What I re­ally like about this time of year is the warm and neu­tral colours that are as­so­ci­ated with the sea­son.”

Style in­spi­ra­tion

“I like fash­ion blogs; I find a lot of in­spi­ra­tion from canadas­treet­style.com. What I ap­pre­ci­ate is good-qual­ity cloth­ing. I like things that are durable and time­less, things I’ll be able to pull out of my closet 20 years from now. It gets back to the jeans — hav­ing a qual­ity pair of jeans can give you that time­less look. I re­ally like Win­nipeg’s style, a lot of peo­ple care about their fash­ion here and we have unique bou­tiques that re­ally rep­re­sent Win­nipeg’s style and cul­ture.”

Fash­ion tip

“Keep your look nat­u­ral and ef­fort­less as pos­si­ble while at the same time look­ing put-to­gether and unique.”
