If at very beginning of December a survey of what most people would like to avoid was conducted, at the top of the list there definitely would be festive clothes which stack up the shops. Such apparel is often too open, too shiny, and there is a fine line of them being in a good taste and kitschy.
Even though there are plenty of ideas for Christmas or New Year’s Eve party everywhere (from fashion magazines to shop windows), it would be nice to disconnect from all of them and offer something new and unexpected. A glamorous and stylish woman who is ready for celebration is heading towards the New Year. She does not have to be exceptionally bright, whilst her shoes could become the focus of attention.
PARTY VELOUR CHRISTMAS TREE
As the year is coming to the end, velour and velvet are still on top of the list on catwalks and shop shelves. Designers offer a wide range of ideas how to interpret this luxurious fabric: from smooth facture to laser-cut, decorated with ornaments and patterns, and rough, wrinkled one.
In our selection of velvet shoes you can find winkle-pickers from Laura Bellariva or Strategia evening line, Carven fashion house beauties straight from the catwalks, as well as iconic Fru.it models with a velour surface variegated with exclusive patterns which will make your festive look more playful.
High-heels with velour can be easily matched with a little black dress, wide pants, a shiny bomber jacket, or dance freely to “Let It Snow” fully dressed in velour.
To the ladies who chose free-cut dresses, satin boyfriend jackets, or pants for the evening we offer a bit more massive shoes with velour: from plain to flowered ones. To create a festive look you will only need a few shiny accessories and a red lipstick.
A sophisticated, sexy, and extremely stylish look can be created by wearing velour boots. Combine them with blazers (from boyfriend style to maxi length), dresses, fur, or shiny puffer winter jackets. Chose a right clutch bag or even a shiny backpack. Boots should become the focal point of your outfit. Do not turn into a Christmas tree yourself.
Would you like an option not only for holiday, but also for a stylish everyday look? Choose boyfriend style shoes. Minimalistic classic choices can be combined with shiny lurex tights while metallic or glossy leather shoes go with matte or black tights. Such footwear option is perfect with every possible festive outfit (except “Black tie”).
A shiny shoe option combined with jeans or classic pants and white blouse will look great not only during the office Christmas party, but for casual wear too.
INSPIRED BY RETRO
While listening to Christmas songs from Frank Sinatra or Bing Crosby’s records one gets overwhelmed with festive retro spirit. Dresses decorated with beads or guipure, or even a boa, can be combined with rounded nose shoes and those adorned with clasps or tassels. The best choice would be Chie Mihara, Pomme D’Or, Ixos, and Carven models.
Retro classics dictate the decorative style typical for such period which is full of colours, patterns, and details.
There is a belief that the New Year’s Eve celebration will determine what the following year is going to be like. Silent luxury is the best new start. Exceptional gloss: crystals, fish scales, lurex, metallic leather, and velour. These are only a few elements which can create your magic and mysterious holiday look. Exclusive Premiata, Carven, or McQ by Alexander McQueen can become the focal point of your evening outfit. A modest silk cami dress decorated with guipure, black fur, and Premiata high-heels, luxurious black velvet pant suit and Carven ankle boots with a geometric heel. Looking like this you can gallantly step not only into a luxurious dinner party with friends, but also a New York style party.
”Rocking around the Christmas tree, Let the Christmas spirit ring!” is the mood which perfectly summarizes your festive look. If the dress code does not require to wear high-heels or a shiny fish scale dress, trainer style shoes are perfect for you. And not only this, since this festive look ranges from “sporty couture” to an oxymoron “rough festiveness”.
Make no mistake! Comfort is not confined to trainer style shoes. A more modest substitute for high-heels would be ballerinas or ballet-type shoes with a short, comfortable heel. Create and exclusive image: from girly retro to a real British lady.
NEW PERSPECTIVE TO LENGHT
Everything you need is over-the-knee boots. Boots which are still a top fashion trend go well not only with a prolonged jacket, which looks great with a massive necklace, but also an evening dress with a slash. A bolder option would be a shiny biker jacket and a tulle dress.
Trend-setting Strategia boots come in various colours and materials: from classic black to glossy and decorated with fish scales. Believe us, that unforgettable evening you will be the centre of attention. Just do not miss the New Year’s Eve!
NEW FASHION DIALOGUES. IN MASCULINE STYLE
Male New Year’s conversations are sophisticated and intelligent. They range from stories which took place the previous year to new experiences. The look is also new: classic polished leather shoes have been replaced with modern classics, while the braver ones shall chose more extravagant footwear. Of course, this does not apply if your party invitation is marked with “Black tie” condition. Then again classics comes in handy.
For men during the holiday period we suggest experimenting with shape and leather texture. Welcome the New Year unlike before.
