Outfits for Every Festive Occasion
Black Tie Affair From nights at the theatre to charity balls, a magical soirée calls for an entrance-worthy ensemble. Sequins are practically synonymous with Christmas, and took pride of place in A/W2022 collections from Paco Rabanne, Emilia Wickstead, and Bottega Veneta, to name a few. A little black dress in any shape or form is the undisputed hero of partywear. Self-Portrait’s sophisticated design is cut from metallic bouclé, putting a sparkly spin on formalwear for an elevated evening look. Wear yours with patent pumps and a statement handbag - Chanel is a failsafe option.
Winter City Break If you’re treating yourself to a seasonal trip abroad, whether to visit a Christmas market or hunker down in a log cabin, you’ll likely want to wrap up warm with cosy knits and coats. From Prada to Totême, shearling coats have been a standout favourite for outerwear. Disclaimer altert: this is a fabric that flits between shabby and chic, but Louis Vuitton’s fur-lined leather iteration shows exactly how shearling should be worn. And of course, airport essentials like Dior’s passport holder and an Hermès tote are a must.
Christmas Day However you spend Christmas Day, take full advantage of the anything-goes attitude to outfits. Even if you’re hosting at home, it’s the perfect occasion to get glammed up in your favourite party dress, teamed with stiletto pumps and showstopping accessories. Unashamedly embrace the festive spirit by opting for jewel tones and sumptuous fabrics - nothing says Christmas like a red dress, and this silky gown from Tove was made it.
New Year's Eve Welcome the new year in style, be it over dinner and drinks or dancing the night away. The LBD is a well-established staple, but the opportunity for top-to-toe glitter comes but once a year. A dazzling number from celebrity favourite Self-Portrait is a lesson in old-Hollywood glamour, paired with a mannish blazer and stilettos for an elegant, edgy finish. Thigh-high boots have stolen the show this season - Demna’s Balenciaga knife boots are an A-list essential for good reason, worn with a flirtatious mini dress.
