The holidays are here! We’re gearing up for ultra-glam parties, White Elephant hangouts and intimate family gatherings. Last year, the world remained confined to their homes and shut down from the onset of COVID-19, but in 2021, the spirit of the holidays has been resurrected.
In today’s Runway to Real Way feature, I’m honing in on looks that will dub you into the belle of the ball. I’m talking looks that will turn heads, drop jaws and earn you compliment after compliment. We’re looking beyond the cliche “red and green” to bring in eclectic touches that still hold true to the season.
Keep reading to get into a few curated ‘fits for your upcoming holiday soiree!
1) Don’t dismiss prints.
Take notes from Lanvin’s Fall 2021 collection and bypass solid colors. Show a little leg in a sparkly, wrapped printed number and closed toed slingbacks. Bonus points added for matching sunnies and a lux party bag!
2) Elevate your look with statement details.
For a more conservative vibe, pair statement trousers with an on-trend cutout top (as seen on the Coperni runway).
3) Think green.
Shine bright like a diamond in a festive sequin stunner and metallic lace-up heels. Naeem Khan styled up this party-ready ensemble with a striking lip and voluminous hair. It’s giving Diana Ross in the 70’s, no?
4) Opt for a glamorous set!
Searching for versatility? Invest in an embellished velvet two-piece set – you’ll be sure to rock the seperates a second time. Dundas teaches us how to uplift the vintage feel with their buttery cranberry option.
5) Be the holiday envy in stacked textures.
Dolce and Gabbana has mastered the art of making a sartorial statement. If you’re the type who embraces texture and shine, let your maximalist flag fly with this look. Whew, the slay!
