All Wrapped Up
A black wrap dress is absolutely timeless. The style and fit of this classic item makes it ideal for all body types. Another plus? You can wear it all year long and to pretty much any occasion that comes your way, talk about bang for your buck! Play with your accessories to change up the look of this dress.
A Pop of Pattern
A patterned tie in an unexpected colour is a great way to add some festive fun to a suit. Major plus: the eye-catching pop of colour will be sure to make you stand out from the sea of suits around you. Go bold or go home!
Soft, plush velvet not only feels amazing against the skin, but this fabric simply exudes luxury. It is no wonder that when the holidays roll around, people can’t help but drape themselves in the luxe material. Try it out in a suit, or put a new spin on an LBD by opting for one in velvet!
If you’re feeling especially festive, pair your suit with a red and white candy cane striped shirt. There’s no better way to get in the holiday spirit!
What would the holidays be without a little bit of sparkle? For a fun night out, try a flirty, bold and always stylish metallic mini. To secure dozens of head turns, pair with red lips and velvet jacket as seen here. ‘Tis the season to be ornate after all so go for the gold this Christmas!
