An eccentric holiday.

It’s the most wonderful time of year… for fashion, that is.

Nothing brings back memories of the holidays like amazing new collections, a re-born love for shopping, gift-giving, and celebrating. Although the temperatures are slowly dropping back to zero, it’s no excuse to drop having fun with your style. If anything, let it challenge you to stand out amongst the winter-laden crowds. Trust me on this, you’ll defeat a little bit of that winter seasonal depression if you put more effort into your looks every morning.

One of my favourite trends this holiday season is tying a bow around your neck with a thin scarf. When I browsed the latest DVF Holiday/Resort Collection I basically cried of happiness seeing all the bows integrated into the dresses and jumpsuits. The first polka dot dress just screams modern elegance to me. The polka dots make the dress youthful (always reminding me of the 1920’s classic versions of Minnie Mouse), while the bow makes me feel like the epitome of a sophisticated, modern DVF woman. I accessorized the dress with a cross body bag so that I can transition the look from meetings and work in the day to a gathering or night out with friends in the evening.

DVF never fails to amaze me with their prints, which despite their loud, unique nature, are still entirely wearable. Pulling off a jumpsuit may seem intimidating, but I guarantee you that nothing will get you as many compliments in one night. Find a well fitting, high-waisted jumpsuit, rock your highest heels, put on your most confident face, and just trust me. Nothing says “i’m confident” as instantly as a printed jumpsuit. The harmony between the smaller and larger print florals on this killer DVF jumpsuit make life that much easier since you don’t have to worry about accessories and styling, but I did pick a small, yet also incredibly detailed clutch to take with me to dinner that night.

Undoubtedly, every little detail counts.
