We love and appreciate our customers and are always trying to find ways to make your shopping experience better. Sometimes when you see a bunch of clothes online you wonder, how should I wear that? You want to get ideas to style your own outfits, right? We figured, let's look at the collection as a whole and put together some outfits to show you.
That's where I got recruited. I'm not a model. Full stop. I work for Diane Kennedy clothing in the capacity of customer service, I also do all the shipping and write the odd blog post, among other things. But the other day I was challenged with putting together some outfits from our Spring 2019 collection that I would wear in my own way.
I want to say right from the beginning that modeling is hard. I'm not kidding, it's a lot harder than it looks. Lucky for me, I had our newest team member Tracy and our in-house fab photographer Logan to put me through the moves. Tracy knows all about how to get the best out of a model, how to stand, how to walk, what to do with your hands, where to look. It's actually a lot to think about so I was so, so grateful for the guidance. Logan is fantastic, among other things, and he is infinitely talented and extremely patient.
I couldn't wait to try the new Jinx Jumpsuit on. Possibly the most comfortable thing I've ever worn. I wanted to try the Black and White striped Paradox Jacket over top and I just loved this look! This jumpsuit is so casual and yet so easily dressed up.
Another new fave has got to be the fantastically versatile top Add Pockets in Moroccan. Wear it on its own or layer it over almost anything to create the most amazing silhouette. I wore it over the Rejuvenate Leggings also in Moroccan and topped that with the Paradox Jacket in Black and Moroccan stripe. I love the way these layer up and the jacket just pulls the whole look together.
Here I've worn Add Pockets with the Casting Capri in Black and Moroccan stripe. These capris are so fun with their wider leg and are the perfect length. Wear them with flats or a little bit of a heel. Again, casual or dressy but always soft and luxurious.
This is just me, wearing a few of my favourite Diane Kennedy separates. I hope you enjoy seeing my personal choices of Diane Kennedy's Spring 2019 line and that you can envision our collection as part of your own personal style.
What do you do when the going gets hot? Maybe shorts don't really work for you? Everybody needs a hot weather option to get them through the dog days of summer. That's where the cool comfort of our beloved Capri comes in.
From the widest leg to our slimmest leg, there's a Capri here for every body.
Based on our Serene Pant, this Capri has a wider leg for anyone that has a preference for a wide, flowy leg. Designed to perfectly complement any of your warm-weather tops or jackets. Black and white stripes give this Capri a modern graphic look. The Casting Capri can be dressed up or down to suit your needs. We want you to be cool and comfortable from top to bottom this Summer!
If you love our Flex Pant, you are in luck! The Flight Capri fits just like our Flex Pant but with flat to the body pockets. These capris aren't tight on the leg but cut just right to give ease of movement and a more relaxed fit.
This design started out as a unique sleeve. We were fooling around with a twisted detail and it found its way into the leg of our Motion Capri. With our signature smooth waistband, it fits just like all our classic pants. It also features handy, flat to the body pockets, a mid-calf length and the openwork detail at the hem.
Our classic Capri tights are back! They're a 3/4 length and a great warm weather bottom you can live in all summer. If you like our Rejuvenate Leggings you will love these shorter tights. The perfect thing to wear under a flowy tunic.
Coming soon are the Uptown capris with a wider leg and fun, asymmetrical pockets on the leg. Stay tuned for this new style by Diane Kennedy!
Capri-length bottoms made from softest bamboo can be found in our online shop here.

Spring Preview – Continued!
Our newest collection is starting to fill our showroom and warehouse, and I’m excited to show you what’s in store for Spring 2019. Tunics, capris, pants, jumpsuits and even a dress this season. As always, these pieces are made from sustainable fabrics and completely manufactured in Canada, so you can feel good about buying and wearing them. In a continuation of our earlier preview blog, I’m giving you a look at our design process via our storyboards.
Our Cinema Tunic blends stripes and solids with an asymmetrical neckline and a handy pocket, creating a striking style. Pair it with the breezy comfort of our Casting Capri for a coordinated look.
Looking for an easy-to-wear outfit that will turn heads? The Metro Tunic combines an abstract navy-and-white print with a solid navy panel and pocket. The gathered bottom of our Travel Pant adds visual interest. Together, these pieces create a modern silhouette.
Our Downtown Jacket has the convenience of a front zip so you can wear it as a Jacket or a Tunic. The Clever Cami makes an ideal base layer underneath. Add our wide-leg, striped Axiom Pants for a versatile ensemble.
Our Weekend Dress is a travel must-have; slip in on with some fun flats or cute sandals, and you’re dressed for anything. Our "Add Pockets" tunic can go over a Perfect Tee, but also looks great on its own with our classic Cafe Legging. (coming back this season)
I hope this sneak peek has inspired you to imagine how sensational you’ll look in these separates. Stay tuned to our newsletter and website to find out when each piece becomes available, and remember that personal shopping appointments are available between 10 am and 4 pm on most weekdays – come find out how beautiful and comfortable you can be!
