The festive dressing game has begun and this also marks the time for the most extravagant of dressers (or piece of your wardrobe) to come out and shine. Whether your style profile is more romantic or leans towards the edgier side, we have compiled a shopping edit of show-stopping pieces that will nab best dressed at this year’s party.
If you want to channel your inner daring self you can’t go wrong with the staple little black dress that will look hauntingly beautiful with gilded or spiked accessories and cut-out ankle booties with a vertiginous heel. From dramatic ruffles and feathers through to rainbows of sequins, ’tis the season where nothing is off limits when it comes to fabulous party wear.
Refresh the good old classics with this season’s feather-details or semi-sheer inserts on your frock or take the plunge with a downright bold decolletage or thigh-baring slit (never the two together unless it’s a red carpet situations). If you don’t want to stray too far from your go-to black, opt for a deep red hue on top that will ideally compliment a leather or latex mini skirt for a look that is equal parts naughty and nice.
Add an unexpected twist to sheer pieces by layering them atop a metallic or contrasting satin camisole, a textured over-sized blazer that will balance the alluring appeal of a more daring piece and finishing the whole with fashion rebels best-kept secret – a memorable and bold lip in violet or deep blue. Upgrade your shoe game because, well, nothing is ever more novelty than bigger-than-life footwear. This season, style a bare back jumpsuit with thigh-high slouchy sparkle boots – not one for the faint of heart.
If you however, swoon over billowing hemlines, silky fabrics, frills and embellishment and want to re-create a romantically festive and timeless silhouette, look to full-on sequined cocktail pieces or embrace interesting neck and hemlines. A fared midi dress with a sweetheart neckline will leave room for accessorizing to your heart’s desire while a long-sleeved, high-neck body in an interesting fabric, enter this season’s favorite – velvet, with a pair of high-wasted pants and embellished sock boots is the most elegant and infinitely flattering silhouette there is. Jumpsuits or stylish separates are party-ready directional pieces that you will also be able to get extra style mileage out of past the festivities. Keep your palette monochromatic with candy-toned and bolder hues in the details to create an intricate silhouette that will seamlessly transition between occasions. Like your winter knit with a little something extra? One of this season’s major trends borrows from the nice girl’s favorite pearls to embellish statement sleeves and adorn necklines alike.
