Here’s what Caterina Moda, Diana Di Poce and Meredith Shaw had to say about their monthly outfit selection. Style tips included!
Diana Di Poce
Your style tells a story—the story of who you are and who you aspire to be. Fashion goes beyond your clothing; it’s used as a powerful form of self-expression, without even having to speak a word! Want to wake up feeling like a boss babe? Throw on a fitted blazer. Feeling playful and feminine today? Opt for a floral print fit-and-flare dress. The options are endless. Whether you’re headed to the office for a night on the town with your girls or simply grabbing a latte at your fave café, your style should fit every chapter of your life.
In comes In every story…, your new BFF! Think of this empowering brand as your official fashion sidekick. Offering everything from the perfect fit and exceptional quality, to versatile and trend-inspired fashions, In every story… is here for every chapter of your style story. As you’re penning your story, I’ll be here along the way as your mentor for all things fit and fashion!
My style story? It changes from day-to-day, depending on where my planner takes me, how I’m feeling, what I hope to achieve—the list goes on! One thing’s for sure: no matter the day, what every chapter in my story has in common is confidence. I love to make a statement in looks that have me feeling bold, empowered and daring. I aspire to own the boardroom, conquer my goals and do so in style. I use clothing to communicate and tell my story as an uncompromising entrepreneur, art director and fashion editor.
With this in mind, versatile and functional pieces are a must in my closet. I’m talking staples: a sophisticated blazer, a crisp white blouse and a curve-hugging pair of jeggings. This look is my ultimate go-to and the foundation of a classic workwear wardrobe.
A white blouse is essential. The structured fit of this collared shirt makes it easy to pair with all of my work pieces, while the buttoned tabs on the sleeves allow for an effortless, rolled-up look.
Trendy meets comfort with these jean leggings. Super stretchy, figure-flattering and easy-to-wear—what more could a girl ask for? Bonus: the dark wash will instantly have you feeling fierce!
To complete my look, I topped it off with this eye-catching emerald blazer. When styling an outfit, I’m always on the lookout for a statement piece that inspires me. Whether it’s a playful print, tailored fit or in this case, a pop of colour, I live for it all! Not only will this high-quality blazer become your closet’s MVP, it will have you strutting in to your next meeting, runway style.
I aim to take my looks beyond my 9-to-5 chapter, and these pieces do just that! Tuck the white blouse into a fitted pencil skirt for a bombshell look, or belt the blazer over a dress for a tailor-made feel. I make these jeggings work around the clock, rocking them every day of the week.

I’m an early childhood educator, boxing coach, model and digital influencer and I need to be comfortable while I’m hopping from one gig to another. I choose pieces that are comfortable and will move with me, whether I’m sitting on the carpet reading a story to my kindergarten students or travelling to photo shoots, my clothes should be able to adapt to my lifestyle. I loved these styles because they are versatile and could easily be coordinated with my existing wardrobe. I could wear this outfit with classic white runners for kicking a ball around with the kiddies on a sunny spring day. Then I can grab a clutch, throw on a pair of heels and hoop earrings for drinks with the girls.
The key to great style is to feel good in what you wear, that being said, I smile when I’m comfortable, I smile when I look cute, I smile when I get compliments and aren’t smiles always in style anyways?

As the fashionable character style mentor here are my 3 tips to help you build a trendy wardrobe:
1 – Find your right fit. That’s the one “fashion rule” I live by. You can wear anything you want if the fit is on point so take the time to find your size and if you need to get it tailored – do it. That little bit of extra time and money will take a look from cute to caaauuuute. #worthit
2- Find what speaks to you. What is and isn’t trending shouldn’t dictate your personal taste. True style doesn’t come from being a trend copycat, it comes from letting your life experience inform your fashion choices. So be YOU.
3- Don’t be afraid to try. Make 2018 the year that you ditch the doubt and shop for things you would normally pass by. For example, I would NEVER have thought that I could rock a jumpsuit and now you can’t get my curves out of them! You never know how something is going to look on you unless you try it!
Here’s one of the looks I put together with the In every story…collection:
My life is anything but conventional so this easy breezy suit really speaks to me. I feel it creates a polished look without coming across stuffy and standard. The top is the perfect mix of business (black and white stripes) and style (bias cut). I also love the fit of this blazer because it’s comfortable and long. I could have just as easily paired this top and blazer with a pair of skinny jeans on casual Friday.
For all the fashionable characters out there I say this: play and have fun with it! For me, it’s all about getting the right fit and accessorizing (never underestimate the power of a great pair of shoes and bright bling to elevate your on-trend style).
