Transition Your Winter Self into Summer – Toronto PATH

While the weather’s been a constant reminder that winter isn’t over yet, spring and summer are just around the corner. Before you know it, the days of thick parkas will be long gone and the months of warm sunshine will take over. Don’t let the Canadian weather get you down. With some help from Oxford Properties and your Toronto PATH retailers, you can get summer-ready in no time.

 

Swap Thicker Layers for Thinner Ones
The first step to preparing for warm weather is taking a second look at your wardrobe. Is the majority of your closet filled with knitwear? It might be time to pack away the thick, woolly sweaters and reintroduce tank tops, t-shirts and dresses. Reitmans in MetroCentre has a great selection of basics you will definitely want to stock up on for summer staples. Thinking of starting an exercise routine? Their Hyba line of activewear is both trendy and affordable. If you’re looking for more one-of-a-kind wear, Jazz Casuals is across the hall and offers a great selection of styles.

Don’t forget about nightwear! Those cuddly pyjamas you’ve been donning all winter just won’t cut it in the heat of summer nights. Head to Calvin Klein in Royal Bank Plaza for a pair of lightweight, quality intimates that will last you for a few seasons to come.

Purchase Some Warm Weather Accessories
It’s finally sunglasses season! Take advantage of the new season by going on a mini shopping spree for any summer accessories you don’t currently own. Believe it or not, investing in a higher quality pair of sunglasses will be kinder to your budget in the long run. It may seem tempting to purchase a lower-quality grade for the price tag, but you will definitely gain better protection and more use out of the high quality pair. Head to Hakim Optical in Royal Bank Plaza or Josephson Opticians in Richmond-Adelaide Centre for a fantastic selection on your favourite styles.

If you’re planning on frequenting the beach, a new beach bag is essential. Head to Highfields in Richmond-Adelaide Centre and browse through their new spring styles. Plus, it’s a great way to transition your summer wardrobe if you don’t feel like buying a whole new set of clothes!

Get Your Skin Prepped
Spring is a great time to not only refresh your wardrobe, but your whole body. Treat yourself to a day of pampering to get your skin ready for the sun, especially after the dryness of a long winter. Whether you want to try a DIY treatment at home or let the professionals take care of it, your Toronto PATH retailers have everything you’ll need.

First things first, you need to hydrate. The winter has harsh winds that can dry out your skin and it helps to give yourself a little extra attention now that the weather is warming up. Stop by Consonant Skincare in Richmond-Adelaide Centre for a wide array of moisturizing treatments, or head to The Body Shop in Royal Bank Plaza and pick up one of their rich Body Butters.

The warmer weather is also a great excuse to treat yourself to a pedicure, especially if you’re planning a vacation. If you haven’t been taking care of your feet throughout the winter, it might be best to let a professional do the job. Head to Polish’d in Richmond-Adelaide Centre for an enjoyable service with quality nail technicians. If you feel like a little extra primping, you can head down the hall to Waxon Wax Bar for a quick brow or bikini wax.

With any luck, the warm weather will be on its way soon and with the help of Oxford Properties and your Toronto PATH retailers, you can be summer-ready in no time.
