Street Style: Sherway Gardens

Street Style: Sherway Gardens

For west-enders who’d rather not make the trek downtown, Sherway Gardens is the go-to destination for shopping sprees, haircuts and coffee dates. And now, there’s really no reason to leave the ’hood: the Cadillac Fairview–owned complex is home to a ton of great new shops, including Toronto’s second Saks Fifth Avenue, with its own Pusateri’s food hall and O&B restaurant. Here’s what 17 people wore to hang out at the mall on a Saturday.

“I’d say my style is a mix of punk and urban influences—I don’t like to use the term ‘hipster’. I’m just here grabbing coffee.”
