We all have favourite memories from the lake. For some, it’s seeing our kids’ first cannonball off the dock. For others, it’s the outdoor dinners with friends that last until the sky fills with stars.
For many of us, those nostalgic moments were wrapped in a treasured sweatshirt that kept us cozy around the campfire. And if you grew up cottaging anywhere in Canada, it just might have featured the iconic Northern Reflections loon.
No matter what you love most about the lake, you’ll find a perfect outfit in the iconic Canadian brand’s line of easy-to-care-for, durable, nature-inspired essentials. So we partnered with Northern Reflections to pick out our favourite pairings for everything we love doing at the cottage.
Sipping early-morning coffee
If you’re stealthy enough to wake before your guests, savouring coffee on the dock as the mist ambles off the lake is the perfect start to a cottage day. But even if you’re sipping solo, the Cable Knit Pullover combines comfy with stylish.
Embracing a campfire’s glow
Adventuring on the lake
Whether you’re island hopping for a picnic or just cruising with friends, the Comfort Crop Pants go from helm to harbour in style, with super-soft fabric and ample stretch.
Entertaining on deck
We dine outdoors to immerse ourselves in nature, so it’s fitting that many of Northern Reflections’ patterns, including the floral flow of the Capped-Sleeve Button Front Top, are inspired by the landscape we love.
Stargazing on a chilly night
Opening weekend can’t come soon enough in cottage country, and even the chilliest of springs won’t stop us from escaping the city lights and building the season’s first campfire under the stars. Luckily, the stretchy, soft comfort of the Microsand Jean Jacket helps us embrace those crisp evenings.
Braving the Friday-evening scramble
We love to arrive, but we dread the drive. Get the jump on Friday’s highway hustle with the Faux Leather Barn Jacket, which glides from your office to opening weekend without any extra stops along the way.
Heading out for ice cream
Driving into town for peach sorbet and a new book for the dock? A pair of Comfort Bermuda Shorts are a pull-on essential, and they fit flawlessly with any breezy top.
Tackling DIY projects
The hammock is calling, but we all nap a little easier once we’ve bitten off a chunk of our chore list. Roll up the super-soft French terry sleeves of the Basic Perfect Hoodie, and earn the perfect afternoon snooze.
