The days are short, and the weather is grim. But the prospect of party season is keeping us going. There are canapes to be sampled, corks to be popped, and dancefloors aplenty. But as soon as we have RSVP'd, we have a dilemma. What shall we wear?
For the optimum festive party experience, you've got to feel like a squillion bucks. You can reinvent trusty little black dresses, and party looks with the help of one or two well-chosen accessories. Inject festive finishing touches to your party get-ups for pizzazz and sparkle. Keep scrolling for some inspiration to jazz up your party looks.
It's A Wrap
Adding a wrap to an evening dress is eternally elegant. It oozes an air of mystery and sophistication. It also stylishly adds some coverage to a sleeveless dress for anyone who doesn't want to show off any arm or shoulder. Plus, an added layer provides some much-needed warmth during winter nights out.
All our cashmere and silk wraps are light and deliciously soft, ideally suited to wear draped femininely about the shoulders. Our Swarovski Crystal Black Cashmere and Silk Wrap comes with glitz included. Delicate Swarovski crystals embellish both ends of the wrap and are scattered constellation-like throughout. Sparkle from every angle.
Long Leather Gloves
A pair of full-length gloves, or opera gloves as they are sometimes referred to, are making a comeback. Style icons like Marilyn Monroe in 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes' and Audrey Hepburn in 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' cemented the long glove as a glamourous accessory. But pop stars like Olivia Rodrigo, Saweetie, and Dua Lipa made red carpet appearances at this year’s Grammys in leather and satin numbers and are spurring demand for above-the-elbow gloves.
Our Long Leather Gloves are made from 100% hair-sheep leather, a premium gloving leather known for its soft but durable qualities. Style a pair of these with a sleeveless or strapless dress à la Marylin and Audrey for a show-stopping style statement. Or allow them to peek out of capes or cropped-sleeved coats and jackets for a demure look.
Party Hat's On
There's nothing quite like watching the fireworks to bring in a New Year, a fun but chilly tradition. The pandemic also saw many get more comfortable hosting outdoor events in the depths of winter. Partying outside doesn't mean you need to let the glitz in your outfit slip.
Our Black Crystal Cashmere Beret with Fur Pom Pom adds all the warmth you need for al fresco festivities with a subtle dose of twinkle and glamour. Black crystals are dotted against a backdrop of black cashmere for delicate sparkle, all topped off with a fabulous fox fur pom pom.
