You gotta love separates with handy fill-in-the-blank slogans... like the one splattered across this retro-hued men's zip-front by Diesel ($175, Size , 471 Church, 416-925-8860, www.sizeclothing.com).
Handmade by the city's own Laura-Jean "the Knitting Queen," this lilac cotton frilly femme number ($150, Fresh Baked Goods , 274 Augusta, 416-966-0123, www.freshbakedgoods. com) provides excellent cover for spring's must-wear little dresses and sexed-up camies.
You'll definitely want to keep shoulder-dusting earrings (or any other snag-inducing jewellery) far, far away from this soft and delicate 100-per-cent cashmere faux double-layer roll-neck ($119, call 1-877-638-5902 for retailers) by high-end Toronto knitwear label Line.
Just because you're a boy doesn't mean you have stay in neutral colour territory. Jazz it up, yo, with Quick Reflex's zesty orange cotton V-neck ($55, Body Blue , 201 Danforth, 416-778-7601).
I'm guessing the best way to describe this reconstructed cardigan ($120, Frock , 97 Roncesvalles, 416-516-1333) by local designer Susan Harris is Frankenstein Meets Pretty In Pink.
