This holiday season is the perfect time to play around with patterns and textures. From velvet suits to silky slip dresses, diamante embossment and monochromatic looks, celebrating just got so much more exciting. One thing us Canadians can all agree on, is that keeping warm this winter season will not stop us from pulling together the most fablooks. Let your winter wardrobe speak for itself during the holidays, with statement pieces pulling together every one of your looks.
Look 1: The Holiday Party at Work
Work parties have to be the least exciting event during the holiday season, right? That could be the case, but this year you’re ready to turn heads in your straight out of the office look. Forget all about the biggest fashion faux-pas this season and be bold enough to strut your stuff in a head-to-toe black velvet suit paired with an oversized brown, yes brown, fur coat (faux of course!). To elevate your look, pull it all together with a pair of snakeskin printed pumps and statement bronze earrings. Your boss just might have to give you that raise you’ve been asking about for looking this good while still being warm and comfortable.

Nothing screams winter more than an all-white midi knit-dress, knee high boots, paired with a thick wool trench and an oversized scarf… you can never be too warm! This effortless monochromatic ensemble will have you looking pulled together, while you’re running holiday errands all over town this year.
