3 Ways To Dress Festive in Black & White

Tired of the traditional jewel toned and metallic frocks that are the mainstay of holiday style? Try chic graphic black and white for a fresh take on festive that you can still wear to the office, brunch...or really anywhere the winter months take you.

Our Picks: 

1. White House Black Market Instantly Slimming Dress
2. Joe Fresh Print Party Dress
3. Diane Von Furstenberg Python Wrap Dress via eLUXE.ca

How To Make Them Pop:

To embody the spirit of the season, pile on the bold baubles and a pair of colourful heels and don't be afraid to add a sparkly or textured layer or two. Faster than Santa's sleigh you'll see your style options multiply by experimenting with a floaty sheer kimono or fur trimmed cashmere cardi on top, or a bejewelled collared shirt or bow blouse underneath...maybe both if the wind chill's really kicking. Step out with bare legs if you dare or treat your hosiery as yet another fun accessory and try colour on for size or perhaps mix those prints just a little bit more.
