Looking stylish isn’t usually a top priority for stressed-out mall shoppers. (As one man put it, “It’s a get-in-and-get-out kind of process.”) But earlier this week at the Eaton Centre—during the peak holiday-shopping frenzy around 5 p.m.—there were some surprisingly cool-looking people wandering amongst the usual crowds of loitering teens, lost tourists and suit-clad businessmen. The best power-shopping outfits united functionality with effortlessness. Our favourite looks were unexpected: a bright floral shirt underneath a parka, an intricately handwoven sweaterdress and a cozy take on the Canadian tuxedo.
