Street Style: 17 looks at the commuters at Union Station

Street Style: Union Station

Despite the condo towers rapidly sprouting in the downtown core, Toronto is still a city of commuters (and patient commuters they are, with the longest average daily trip in the country). We headed to Union Station on a recent weekday to find out what the Go Train-ers and subway riders sport en route. And although we saw a few women pairing their executive suits with runners (we assume they had heels in their purses), there were also a host of unabashedly stylish takes on workday dressing.

Several livened up their neutral outerwear with gold hardware, fur hats, on-trend duffel bags and psychedelic scarves (though the most popular accessories were breakfast smoothies, bananas and cups of coffee). A few coats stood out from the forest of black wool: a man paired his kelly green puffy coat with brown leather for a preppy look; a young woman went boho with a fur-trimmed coat and printed scarf; and a writer (on her way home from a job interview) modeled a well-fitting camel wrapper. The morning’s best dressed, however, had to be an elegant woman in a darkly whimsical feathered jacket.
