A memorable holiday-season look requires the addition of just one perfect, intriguing statement item.

Whatever your party-style approach, look for festive textures, unique shapes and standout colours and patterns that are anything but conventional—this holiday season, it’s all about celebrating your unique vision, and feeling comfortable in your skin.
