Anna Sui Green Burnout Velvet Dress

As part of my “Dressing for the Holidays” series with Pink Tartan, I headed to the brand’s Toronto flagship location to find festive looks with the help of my favourite employee/stylist Shane Coleman and immediately fell in love when I set my eyes on this dress. As anticlimactic as New Years Eve celebrations can be, it can be a magical evening if it’s spent with the right group of people and copious amounts of champers. The uniform for most women on this night is usually an LBD or something with sequins…although both are classic choices and usually fail proof, I find it to be a bit too predictable for my liking. Why blend in with the crowd when you can make all the female guests at the party green with envy (literally) with this stunning Anna Sui dress.

Definitely a showstopper, this A-line mini stays true to the designer’s retro-style, rocker chic aesthetic. Detailed with a burnout velvet pattern, this vivid green number is super sexy because it allows me to show off my stems but is still covered up enough on top to still look classy. The stand-up collar and long sleeves with buttoned cuffs is an added bonus during December’s minus degree temps. I’ve styled my look with open toe shoes and a timeless Brunswick & Co clutch made from heavy weight waxed leather (that is actually large enough to fit an iPad) but when folded over transforms into a chic evening piece. For a more edgy look, the dress can also be paired with opaque tights, ankle boots and a moto leather jacket.
