Tartan and Check, Holiday Style

Tartan and Check, Holiday Style

Feast your eyes on the new Holiday Collection! Cheery red tartan, trendy windowpane check, and classic black-and-white houndstooth mix and match in ensembles both daring and delightful - and just in time for this festive season.

The holidays are a time to celebrate, so bring on the parties and up the pizzazz! This season, we’re loving the bright warmth of a classic tartan print. The bold red hue accent with woven yellow and white lines represents a time-honoured style. Using the same fabric in three key pieces allowed us to incorporate this touch of tradition into a multitude of different looks.

Bergstrom Holiday Plaid

First, the Antoinette Blouse sets the plaid print on a bias, adding a flattering angle to the feminine drape neckline and fluttering cap sleeves. Wear this blouse with clean-lined basics like our Jetty Pants or Ashford Skirt in black ponte de roma for a look where tradition and modernity meet.   

In the Morrisette Trousers, the bold plaid is paired with a great sense of flow and movement. Dress up these trousers with a lace V-neck bodysuit and gold jewelry that catches the light. This sexy ensemble will stun at holiday parties and brighten up the night.

Finally, the matching Classic Tartan Sash/Scarf is the perfect accessory to spice up your usual winter neutrals. Of course, you can wear all three together for an amazing jumpsuit style in full-on plaid!

As much as we love the blitz and thrill of the holiday season - a busy calendar can sometimes leave you feeling rushed. That’s why we love items with great fit, versatility, and function. So forget agonizing over putting an outfit together; these pieces will take you effortlessly from day to night.


The Jolie 2 is our favourite little black dress. The fitted form with ¾ length sleeves and princess seams spells out timeless elegance. With a blazer or a belted cardigan at work... or with high heels and a sparkly statement necklace at dinner… the Jolie 2 styles you in sharp sophistication, whatever the event.  

Next, go mod in the new Simone Zip Neck Top! With a funky A-line shape, bell sleeves, and oversized turtleneck, this piece is flattering on every body shape. It’s perfect for layering over long-sleeved tops - try the Urbanite Sweater or the Kincaid Turtleneck - for a great look that keeps you warm as well. This top is transformative; going from casual style with a simple pair of blue jeans, to Christmas-party chic with the Morrisette Trousers!


More than anything else, the holidays are a time to connect with loved ones - from family outings in the snow to cozy nights in with friends by a fireplace. Equip yourself for comfort and cold weather with new designs from the Holiday line and accessories to beat the chill. For an ice-skating date or tree-cutting with the kids, go for the the fluffy Super Check Scarf and pompom-topped Windowpane Toque. These oversized check patterns are fun to mix and match, together with our mini houndstooth printed Jetty Pants. Bring these black-and-white graphics together with one bright pop of colour!


For family gatherings at home, wrap up in the Chamberlain Jacket. This outer layer is the perfect addition to pull on for extra warmth. The rich black knit makes a versatile fit with any outfit, while the dramatic collar and polka-dot texture add a subtle touch of fun. Worn open or wrapped up with the sash belt, you can pull on this piece over any ensemble for a finishing touch - and a helping of comfort.
