Elexis Schloss | Edmonton’s Best Dressed 2020

Her fashion philosophy is that clothing should be classic while accessories should be fun and interesting.

When philanthropist and a presiding official at Citizenship Court Elexis Schloss makes her annual volunteer trip to Africa, she packs a carry-on with simple, mostly black basics … and five pairs of shoes. It’s a testament to her fashion philosophy that clothing should be classic while accessories should be fun and interesting. “On my gravestone I want it to say, ‘She had great accessories,’” Schloss laughs. “Put your money into a classic blazer and fabulous shoes and you can never go wrong.” While her style has changed over the years, fashion has always been of interest to Schloss. Perhaps, most uniquely, some sweaters she started knitting as a hobby ended up being sold through Neiman Marcus, Saks and Holt Renfrew — a skill she now uses to make tuques to donate to local shelters.

Most cherished item: “The accessory I wear most often is my Order of Canada pin. When I put that on my lapel, I’m so proud to be Canadian.”
