Atlas the wait is over, winter is here… and we can finally wear what we’ve been crushing on for months now: the trend we couldn’t wait to shop. There’s something about velvet and the holiday season… they seem to be the perfect pair. Not only will the texture keep us warm but also will have us feel like 70’s disco queens, and we mean that in a good way.
Since we’re feeling pretty velvety, here are top 8 must have items this holiday season:
1- THE VALENTINO AFFECT:
Straight from the runway, this dress is one of pieces that have been featured in Valentino’s fall 2016 show. At the time, the fashion house was still under the direction of the dynamic duo Maria Grazia and Pierpaolo…so it’s now or never!
2- IT’S A CHOO AND IT’S GOLDEN:
These Jimmy Choo booties are the type of accessories we like to add to our outfit when we want to make a statement. Not one that will instantly get someone’s attention but rather an affirmation that will show that you know how to take risks.
3- OUT AND ABOUT:
The holidays are often times when you have to juggle work, festive dinners and family time. Therefor there’s nothing better than having a bag that can cater to all those needs at once. So please do consider this Miu Miu perfection as a great investment.
4- WHEN IN DOUBT WEAR RED:
Seriously, we could not be clearer about this one, especially during Christmas Eve. Honestly what do you have to loose besides the fact that more than one person might wear red? Well that Roland Mouret velvet dress is not any red it’s burgundy! A dress that will have you looking like a Greek Goddess. Trust us…
5- ALL NIGHTERS:
There’s nothing more annoying that having to sit down or leave a good party because your feet hurt. The solution? Flats like these Aquazurra of course will do the trick and you’ll maintain your good appearance all night.
6- RIRI GOT US INTO IT:
Ever since Rihanna collaborated on a collection with Puma we’ve been dying to get our hands on those sneakers! First of all there burgundy… and they look extra comfortable. There’s no way you can go wrong with these!
7- COME TO MAMA!
Short turtleneck? Check. (You know the type that you don’t feel like ripping off at a certain point). Just enough sleeves and midi length to keep us warm from the cold? Check. Ornaments that might have us look like a dress Christmas tree? Check. (It’s the holidays we’ll get away with it…after all its Prada).
8- OLIVIER GETS OUR APPROVAL
The only time of the year, when we’ll accept to wear Balmain, and that may be because he truly knows how to use velvet with added embellishments. Those glitzy dresses are great for any holiday soiree.
