It’s holiday time and that means  glitzing up our boring wardrobes—without lighting up like a Christmas tree. Here’s the problem. While St. Nick et al brings out the jewel tones in all of us, there’s no way we’re giving up our chic blacks and whites. So what to do? Luxe embellishment, that’s what.

We’ve got three ways to take our basic colour combo (well, lack thereof) and turn it into something festive—all designed to showcase a brand new Canadian line of luxe t-shirts, Jacqueline Piron.

Jacqueline’s Story: Handmade in Canada, Jacqueline Piron features organic bamboo material (incredible to wear), superior fit, and premium embellishments including French angora, Japanese ribbon and Swarovski crystals as the detailing. Each black and white V-neck design is dedicated to a special woman (friends, family, colleagues) in Jacqueline’s life. Her ultimate inspiration? Her mom, who once owned a sweater business of her own. In fact, Piron left her corporate career behind to follow in her fashion design footsteps, incorporating into her t-shirts some of the same embellishments her mother included in her pieces.

Read on for more on Jacqueline Piron’s embellished T-shirt line and how to wear it 3 ways.
