Start prepping your looks for the party season. You definitely need many dresses – LBDs and other – as well as some fancy separates to spice up your wardrobe classics. We all know that Holidays call for red, green, and timeless black. For Winter 2018, add also the metallics and the sparkliest choices to the mix. Think of sequins, crystals, beads, studs, embroidery, and embellishments in general. As part of the trends, blend in some florals and prints that were traditionally regarded to be summer-appropriate. Some of you might even be heading to some exotic locations for Holidays, and in that case you will need bright colors and lightweight fabrics!
Little Black Dress
There is no other partywear item as essential as this! It serves as canvas for all your evening accessories, including high heels, booties, clutches, and dazzling jewelry. Since velvet is a hugely coveted fabric for festive looks, the elegant Theory Velvet Tie-Waist Shift Dress will fulfill its purpose. For a younger-looking feel, try the Maje Riwest Embroidered Cotton Shirtdress with ankle boots. And if color is still major for you, then opt for an LBD with a print such as the Diane von Furstenberg Camden Floral Long-Sleeve Wrap Dress.
Metallics & Sparkle
No one resists old-school glamour, especially when it comes directly from the 70s and the 80s! The piece that mostly epitomizes these references is the Alice + Olivia Katz Metallic Leopard Print Pleated Maxi Skirt which incorporates the animal motif and the metallics trend along with the quest for an asymmetric hem. In line with this bohemian attitude, you will find the Diane von Furstenberg Metallic Animal Velvet Devore Wrap Dress featuring perfect texture. In the morning, layer over your basics the show-stopping Sandro Mar Embellished Flannel Jacket.
Partially sheer outfits have a flirty element to them, basically one that gets men’s direct attention. We can opt for such looks tastefully via smart styling and selection of the right pieces. Combine the Alice + Olivia Pauletta Pleated Lace Tie-Neck Blouse with a classic midi skirt or tailored pants so that you keep a high-fashion balance between sexy and preppy. Pick an ethereal fabric to hit the romantic spirit. Our favorite one is the Zadig & Voltaire Rebbie Goa Ditsy Floral Drop-Waist Mini Dress in any weather!Sometimes sheerness can be even more seductive as a tiny detail, for example the trims of this Alice + Olivia Rapunzel Chinoiserie Floral Lace-Trim Dress.
Festive Preppy Look
We never forget the roots of timeless elegance, meaning the pieces that are sleek, luxe, and mix well with each other. The Tory Burch Alisha Pleated Skirt is a desk-to-dancefloor stunner. It matches with a tailored layer such as the Veronica Beard Classic Dickey Jacket. In lower temperatures, try a cozy outerwear staple in an interesting hue such as the Vince Long Brushed-Wool Coat.
During Holiday season, you are highly recommended to look the part not only in the evening but also in daytime. Think of great investment pieces that are in perfect condition and align with your personal esthetics. For the sporty girls, we picked the Burberry Embroidered Archive Logo Cashmere Hoodie. If you are a dreamy or rebellious person, dare to wear the fairytale-inspired Coach 1941 Disney X Coach Varsity Jacket. For color-lovers, the Zadig & Voltaire Kary Long-Sleeve Rainbow Gradient Sweater tops the Holiday wishlist!
