You may not have snow yet (or perhaps your neck of the woods doesn't get snow at all), but one fact is undeniable - the holiday season is upon us. That means you will have parties to attend frequently, whether it's your office party, a family get-together or even the ugly sweater party. The latter has become a staple of the holiday season, but I say you should wear your "ugly" sweater with pride and non-ironically all through the season! Here, use 1940's film actress Deanna Durbin as your spirit guide:

Not wearing a winter coat outside is ill-advised at best /mom

Holiday outfits are so much more than toques (I'm Canadian - I don't know what they are called elsewhere. A beanie?), a knit sweater and some thin gloves. Let's look at some classic holiday films that prove you can still be flawless while dodging patches of ice on the sidewalk.

It's a Wonderful Life

Released in 1946, It's A Wonderful Life is a little dark and a lot hopeful. Donna Reed's outfits range from comfortable (like the cozy dress above) to impeccably tailored and form fitting.

“Rear Window”

 It's October! Time for an entire month full of ghosts, witches, and jack-o- lanterns! So, as you’re putting the finishing touches on your Halloween costume, why not celebrate the month by watching a classic, suspenseful murder mystery? If you’re looking for a real thriller, you will love “Rear Window”! You’ll suddenly find yourself checking your windows and biting your nails as you watch James Stewart and Grace Kelly slowly uncover a shocking crime. Of course the irresistible James Stewart gives a memorable performance as an injured, bed-ridden, and very curious photographer... Grace Kelly also co-stars as Stewart’s beautiful girlfriend, who never ceases to radiate elegance and sophistication- even when unearthing clues at a crime scene! (Honestly, can we expect anything less from her?!) The outfits she wears are simply dazzling, and almost as unbelievable as the mystery itself!

You can have the Grace Kelly look too- anytime, anywhere, with these Shabby Apple ensembles!

At the office: This dress will certainly turn heads at your office! The blousy top is both impressive and comfortable and the sleek pencil skirt is the picture of professionalism.

At home: Just like Grace Kelly in “Rear Window” this combination of skinny crops and a bright colored blouse is perfect for just relaxing at home or a night out on the town!

In the evening: Impress your date and dance the night away in this Grace Kelly style dress- with a Shabby Apple twist!

How do you channel Grace Kelly’s style?

If you’re like me and feel you were born in the wrong era, you will often find yourself gravitating toward actresses of yore for style and beauty inspiration. When it comes to film fashion, you can’t get much better than the ten years spanning 1955-1965. We’re talking Marilyn Monroe in The Seven Year Itch, Tura Satana in Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!, and the one and only Tippi Hedren in Hitchcock classics like The Birds.

Tippi famously battled both birds and the notoriously difficult director himself, but always did so with a perfectly coiffed head of golden blonde hair and a meticulously fabulous wardrobe that straddled the changing fashions of the age. Equally comfortable in styles similar to Dior’s “New Look” (cinched waist, full skirt) and the mod awakening in the 1960s, Tippi started her career as a model for brands like Sea Nymph. I think I speak for all of us when I say that I want and need the bathing suit she is wearing in this gorgeously retro campaign below (that’s Tippi relaxing casually in the middle).

Once she started working with Hitchcock in 1963, her style persona was fully realized. It takes incredible poise and, frankly, guts to endure what Tippi endured during the filming of The Birds. And yet she never missed a beat style-wise – her hair fashionably messy, her dress and jacket ensemble matched perfectly with a clasp-close tote (I am hoping said tote was filled with some sort of bird-deterrent. Girl deserves to have an adorable cat friend that will pop out and save the day stowed away in there).

After the film’s release, Tippi continued to impress with her effortless style in over fifty other motion pictures and television appearances. Her classic make-up preferences would not look out of place on today’s models – after all, the winged eyeliner trend was all over the F/W 2013 runways. No matter where you go, no matter what the occasion, a classic beauty look like Tippi’s will never steer you wrong. It’s pulled-together, smart and looks effortless (even if it’s really not – but no one else has to know that).

When in doubt about what to wear, ask yourself, “What would Tippi do?” You can wear tailored pants or you can rock a calf-length skirt that billows out beautifully from your body. Either way, you’ll be able to make a swift getaway from flocks of roving birds while maintaining your own style icon status.

Want to score Tippi's effortlessly pulled together look? Shabby Apple's fitted and flared dresses will get you there. My favourite, the Estate Houndstooth Pencil Dress, is classy and cute. Pair it with a blazer for a modern look or go full-on Tippi with a large, pearl accented brooch (like Shabby Apple's Krista!)

 Okay, so I know that “The Dick Van Dyke Show” isn’t a movie classic, but I just can't write about vintage fashion without mentioning Mary Tyler Moore! She’s hardly ever talked about as a style icon, but what people don’t know is that Mary completely revolutionized women’s fashions in the 60's!
