Street Style: the 14 best looks at the Union Station Christmas market

This month’s unusually balmy weather, while unfortunate for anyone dreaming of a white Christmas, has an upside: Torontonians can finally flaunt their winter style instead of just cloaking it in Canada Goose. At Union Station’s tented outdoor market, we spotted lots of warm (but not too warm) outfits brightened with statement sweaters and patterned scarves. Here, 14 of our favourite looks.
