CAN'T GET HOME? NO SWEAT. TUCK THE SHRUG AND BRACELET INTO THE CLUTCH AND STASH IN YOUR HANDBAG FOR LATER. LEAVE YOUR HEELS IN THE CAR OR STICK WITH THE BOOTS FOR AN EDGIER LOOK.
Outfit #1 Mainstays: Tunic length top, leggings and gunmetal hoop earrings. Switch up: Take this outfit from casual to chic by trading the cozy cardigan and comfy riding boots for a sequined shrug and patent pump. Switch the belt for a multistrand beaded bracelet and you're set.
Our quick change outfits will help you go from school concert to office party, or family brunch to friendly cocktails faster than a super hero in a phone booth. So RSVP 'attending' and breathe easy knowing you've got holiday style all wrapped up.
IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR FAST GLAM, CHOOSE A TOP WITH A BLINGED OUT NECKLINE. THE GLITZY BEADS AND SEQUINS ADD A LITTLE SIZZLE WITHOUT ADDING ANOTHER ACCESSORY. MAKE SURE YOUR ACCESSORIES COORDINATE WITH THE TRIM TO TIE IT ALL TOGETHER.
Mainstays: Ruffle top with glitzy neckline, feather and stone earrings, blingy shoes and handbag. Switch up: Trade the dark wash jeans for black dress pants and you're set. Add a sparkly cuff that matches the rhinestones on the feather earrings and ditch the coverup. Turn your handbag into a clutch for the evening by tucking in the handle. TUCK IN THE HANDLE TO TURN A SMALL HANDBAG INTO A CLUTCH FOR A MORE SOPHISTICATED LOOK.

THE TUBE SCARF:
We are totally digging the tube scarf right now. The most versatile accessory you can pick up this season is super sweet in this charcoal crochet. We've chosen our top four ways to wear this guy but we're sure if you play around long enough, you'd find tons more.
Double or Nothing: Loop the scarf around your neck twice for a thick, cozy look that's edgy yet warm. There's a kind of French revolutionary feel we're totally loving here.
Shrug your shoulders: This one is great if you're getting a slight chill. Hold the scarf around your waist like a droopy hoola hoop. With the sides under your arms, flip the front over your head so it stays on your arms.
Long Loop: Great when you're running out the door and want to throw it on quick. Just wear it as one long loop around your neck. If you find it's bunchy at the bottom, just pull the top and bottom of the loop so it lies flat, more like a sling.
Under Cover: We've avoided making any hood puns here, but that's essentially what this one is. We also feel this one has a certain "60's Russian Spy" vibe. Very mysterious. Same as #1 just pull the upper loop forward over your head. TRENDSLATION
GET YOUR TOQUE ON Perhaps not exactly what we think of when we talk wardrobe staples but the toque is most certainly a Canadian winter staple. With every other piece of clothing under wraps, the winter toque is one of the few remaining ways to express your personal style during a long winter. So guys, keep your style in check while covering up that cranium and crown yourself the king of winter style.
DRAW THE LINE Sport some graphic stripes that raise the bar. This style is great with a dark wool jacket or a sportier jacket.
GET THE MESSAGE Express how you REALLY feel while shovelling that snow.
YOU KNOW JACK So maybe you're not cutting down trees all weekend long but if you're looking for a more rustic style, a plaid cap is your go-to. Looks great with denim! TRENDSLATION
Romantic destruction is key. Rock & Soul is an eclectic mix of chains and crosses, lingerie inspired laces and black rhinestones. An edgy look with heart.
Romantic destruction is key. Distressed dark denim with gothic screen prints and washed leather looking accessories provide the hard edge to this trend while lingerie inspired lace camisoles and rose and wing motifs add the emotional depth to the look.
An eclectic mix of accessories with common ground. Black rhinestones are pretty yet dark and a leather and rhinestone cuff bracelet mixes good and bad in one. Chain belts, earrings and necklaces add some edge while religious inspired crosses, hearts and gothic flower motifs bring in that sense of depth.
