With Christmas just around the corner, everyone is prepping for their year-end parties. But as we’re all rushing to get work done and finding time to do Christmas shopping, it’s easy to get lost in thinking of what to wear. Luckily, we’re here to guide you on the four essentials you need to nail your night out ensemble.
THE POWER SUIT
Perhaps the most foolproof way to look sleek is by going for tailored separates. This trend is favored by the likes of style icons Alexa Chung and Kate Moss so it’s no surprise why most fashion girls now opt for a menswear-inspired two-piece look than a feminine frock. Pick a tailored blazer or go for a longline coat.
A sparkly dress is always a standout. Do some color coordination with accessories and shoes in complementing hues just like W Magazine’s editor, Giovanna Battaglia. For your jewellery, reach for a pair of gold or silver hoops or a sparkly ear cuff for a subtle statement with an edge.
Take a page from stylist Liz Uy’s book–turn to elevated basics like a velvet turtleneck and pair it with a belted paperbag-waist maxi skirt. Bonus style points if you manage to make your outfit all velvet.
Considered as the ‘It’ accessory of the season, hoops are making waves among the street style crowd. Whether you’re in a simple graphic tee, skirt, or dress, the oversized style of the accessory can effortlessly elevate your ensemble.
