Perfect Weekend Outfits, Courtesy Of Toronto's Coolest

Photographed by Jenna Marie Wakani.
Toronto doesn't immediately spring to mind when listing the most fabulously dressed cities in the world. But, despite its relative lack of New York slickness or London-style peacocking, T-Dot's ladies have their own brand of fashion mojo.
A duster coat worn with a summer dress, a perfectly tied scarf with a sleek suit: The cool girls ahead have an offhand way of wearing basics that make a look way cooler than the sum of its parts. If we had to compare them to denizens in a different style capital, we'd say these ladies are approaching an almost Parisian level of unpretentious cool. Click ahead for the northern neighbors who schooled us in weekend chic.
