Holiday Dressing from Now till New YearNovember 22, 2019
The best part about throwing (or going) to a holiday party is getting together with friends and family. The second best part about holiday parties is getting glammed up. Here’s how to take the guesswork out of holiday dressing with some of our favorite party looks.
Update the LBD
Shine bright this holiday season with our stellar update to the “little black dress.” Our dreamy Casima Embroidered Maxi Dress combines on-trend celestial details with a chic mesh overlay that’s perfect for the holidays. This gorgeous maxi dress pairs beautifully with simple suede booties or strappy heels. Effortlessly finish the look with a black leather jacket or bomber and sparkly jewelry.
Try the Latest Printed Velvets
No fabric sums up the season better than velvet. It adds a richness with its gorgeous drape. New for now is printed velvet like the Delphine Wrap Midi Dress featuring a brocade-inspired floral design. If you’d rather a piece is more day-to-night try the Leda Button Down Shirt which is equally chic over your favorite denim or a tailored trouser.
Play with Animal Prints
Cool-toned animal print is definitely one of the fiercest trends for the holidays — and when combined with timeless velvet, it takes on a chic, dramatic edge that pairs perfectly with a glass of champagne. Our Leopard Velvet Quilted Bomber and Leopard Velvet Jogger can effortlessly be styled with an understated slip dress or sleek top, while our gorgeous Leopard Velvet Wrap Dress really only needs a black heel and simple jewelry.
Top It Off With A Coat
Some of us prefer to cover up with a stand-out statement piece like the Kuba Coat. Crafted from ultra-soft silk and linen, this chic coat features our signature embroidery along the trim. The pop of red flowers makes this just right for right now, but the lighter fabrication is also perfect for spring and summer.
Turn Heads in Bold Prints
If you like your holiday dress with a nod to all things bohemian, select a relaxed silhouette with a kaleidoscopic print like the Brie Dress. Since the cut is casual, make sure it’s a luxe fabric like silk or velvet. If you’re somewhere chilly, top it off in a solid hue like the black Esso Eyelet Duster or the Lux Puffer Jacket in a warm saffron.
