Topshop holiday party dressing

The holiday season is full of opportunities to have fun getting dressed. At Hudson’s Bay Queen Street, personal shopper Jessica Luffman is ready to help you find the statement pieces that suit your personality and all your occasions. Here are some of Jessica’s top holiday dressing tips.

What is your favourite Topshop trend this holiday season?
I have been loving the one-shoulder dress; we carry the style in velvet and sequins. With such a unique cut, the one-shoulder dress gives you the opportunity to play with accessories and incorporate other items into your look. I’ve recently paired the dress with a faux fur vest to keep warm on chilly evenings.

How would you style a bold holiday sweater?
The whole point of a bold sweater is to emphasize the design. Keep the rest simple to give the sweater the attention it deserves,

What’s your advice for wearing sequins without going over-the-top?
Always embrace the holiday sequins! Currently, we have a great selection of sequin skirts in stock. Pairing the skirt with a band tee and leather jacket will rein in the sparkle for an edgy look. For a simple holiday outfit, pair a sequin top with a simple pencil skirt or trousers.

What accessory can you not live without this holiday season?
I have been living for the embellished heel. With intricate embroidery or decoration, these pumps will be your new holiday favourite. For closet variety, I have been pairing them with both denim and wide-leg trousers.

If you don’t want to wear a dress to the holiday party, what’s another good option?
Tailored suiting is always a strong alternative to a party dress. If your goal is to stand out, try a Topshop velvet suit.
