While the holidays are lovely because they’re filled with family and sharing, they’re also stressful for the same reasons. This time of year, you’re all but guaranteed to be spending more time than normal with people that you’re trying to impress – your significant other’s boss, his parents, your grandparents, etc. But where you see a problem, we see an opportunity: Savoir Flair’s five new essentials of holiday dressing are the perfect way to put your best style forward so that you can stride into any holiday party or gathering with confidence. Forget everything you thought you knew about dressing up for the holidays and nab these five new pieces instead.
Sheer can be easily worked into a holiday look as a layering piece to add a bit of sensuality (but not too much!) to your look. Try a crisply tailored jacket, a sheer top, and a bandeau for a look that is professional, but edgy, like Cara Delevingne.
Designer Racil Chalhoub recently offered a series of colored pantsuits for her Spring/Summer 2016 collection that are a supremely chic alternative to the usual holiday colors. Chalhoub says, “Make a statement and wear the full look to strongly stand out from the crowd, or mix this season’s trophy jacket trend with a delicate silk dress for a more playful twist.”
It was around this time last year that the sequined turtleneck showed up on the Dior Resort 2015 runway, and we’ve been pining away for one ever since. Elena Perminova and Chiara Ferragni have recently been rocking the look, which is a festive alternative to the plain turtleneck.
Collar Me Good
For black-tie events, take your look up a notch and give the choker or collar a try. Opt for a simple band for an edgy look or a statement piece to elevate your outfit.
