The trench dress: Skip layering and wear Joe Fresh’s Empress trench ($59, 10 Lower Jarvis, 416-703-4865, and others, www.joe.ca) like a dress. Flashing optional.
The tunic: House of Spy’s printed tunic ($190, Pho Pa, 698 Queen West, 416-979-9444) accessorizes itself with mod black sleeve cuff buttons.
The oversized T-shirt: A great balloon T like Full Circle’s graphic pick ($80, Fawn, 967 Queen West, unit 121, 647-344-4703) is warm-weather easy. Its breeziness means you may still want to throw on some pants, though.
The jumpsuit: A glam Karamea jumpsuit ($235, Pho Pa) offers maximum coverage from a single piece of clothing.
The full-length dress: Go maxi when vintage-picking and find frocks like this 1970s Lanvin printed silk gown ($295, I Miss You, 63 Ossington, 416-916-7021).
