It is closing in on Christmas Day, and the parties are in full flow. Rather than donning gay apparel you opt for festive chic. Christmas and bad taste need not apply, leave that to the distant relatives who find it comical.
Metallic fabrics emblematic of all that sparkles at Christmas time seems to be a natural fit. And when it comes to bringing shine to the party, we can help here. So if you are going gold this time of year, ensure it is fashionably right and not bright.
In line with the festive season, we have selected a handful of opulent brands that may or may not come as obvious choices. From Galvan and its feminine silhouettes combined with refined tailoring to the must-have Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Knot clutch. Gilded metallics do deliver glamour, but the combination in chic must be met. If for instance, your desire for sequinned Ganni skirts or Halpern flares becomes too heightened at this time of year, then look to contrast with a pair of Mule Pumps from Malone Souliers. The refined open back instantly adds elegance and statement to your outfit.
But then there are those that want and need to be seen, floor-length dresses, wide-leg jumpsuits, billowing sleeves. Think Marc and Alex or the red carpet decadence of Tom Ford. Be sure to unlock the safe and bring your most jaw-dropping earrings. But if you are struggling with what to choose, then a rash purchase from Boucheron can save the day… “said no-one ever”
Add some low key festive sparkle to the affair with Carolina Bucci, the understated style of her white and rose gold bracelets will complement the most demanding of outfits. So that being said. We have chosen our edit of a few discreet yet vibrant pieces for the holiday season for you to snap up, for those last minute parties.
