"We are really inspired by the spirit of holiday celebrations," said J Henley, design director, Canvas Lands' End.  "It's the whole idea of getting together, sharing a delicious meal, and making new memories with the people in your life.  We all come from varied backgrounds, have different styles and unique perspectives, but somehow life brings us together and we are better for it.  From refined to more creative garments mixing colors, prints and textures, this collection has fresh options for the different personalities & gatherings of the season." 

Outfit ideas to suit the occasion include: 

  • Merry & Bright for Cocktails with Friends: This is the perfect time to take advantage of the friendly setting to show off or try something different. Go daring with the Sequin Mini Skirt or a pair of Super Skinny Velvet Pants which come in pop shades like Candy Apple, Roasted Corn and Fresh Spruce.  Both fabrics couldn't be more in-season and both pair well with the Quinn Cone Heel Booties.  Guys can feel empowered to test a new look with an accessory such as a bowtie.  The Reversible Snowflake Bowtie offers two prints in red and green snowflakes- making it holiday-appropriate and ideal for party hopping.
  • Twisting the Traditional at the Work Soiree:   Iconic prints that were once dated are new again this holiday season.  Styled with care, they can provide just the right amount of pizazz to an office outing while still keeping it professional.  Take the Women's Lambswool Reindeer Sweater; this is definitely not an ugly holiday sweater party piece.  With a peacock-blue color and modern details like a drop-back split hem, this sweater is transformed into a current and fashionable find and can be dressed up or down depending on the bottom.  For the guys, the Lambswool Fair Isle Crewneck Sweater is a current take on what was once your dad's sweater.  The slim cut falls in line with today's silhouettes and the fair isle pattern is fair game right now.  Also, try layering the Men's Chambray Tuxedo Shirt into holiday looks.  The mix of tuxedo and denim is modern and easy to wear and great for a more formal venue. 
  • Classy Sophistication for Family Feasts:  When it comes to family time, keep it chic yet fun, showing off maturity while still being young at heart.  A dress is always a great dinner staple and the Paisley Holiday Party Dress delivers a silky statement in a classic print whose ruffles add a feminine charm.  Pull on a fitted blazer or jacket such as the Cropped Boiled Wool Jacket to move comfortably from the outdoors in.   He can play it safe and stick to something neutral, especially on the bottom.  The Men's Slim Herringbone Pants are cut from warm, durable wool and finished with more refined details normally found on suiting stylesPair them with a colored buttondown to add some interest like the Men's Plaid Poplin Shirt, which comes in some great patterns like Pineapple or Jade Green Plaid. 
  • Cozy-Cute Comfort on Christmas Morning: Don't let this be another year to be caught in unflattering pajamas and disheveled hair.  It's important to reflect style even when lounging about the house or opening presents.  She can turn to the Chalet Romper or Leggings for a look that's soft, slim, and ski-inspired.  Who could say no to the ski scene pattern or the soft cotton fabric? On super chilly mornings don the Women's Lambswool Sweater Coat whose candy-cane coloring and old-fashioned toggles make spirits bright.  For guys, the foundation is a step up from sweatpants with something like the Tweedy Lounge Pants.  Made from extra warm French terry fabric these pants mix a vintage look with a relaxed fit that still looks rather refined.   Keep toes toasty with the Faire Isle Mukluk Socks.  Inspired by the traditional mukluks the Inuits of the Arctic have worn for centuries but with a casual fair isle print, these socks are designed for some serious indoor lounging.
