Put an Elegant Finishing Touch on your Outfits this Festive SeasonNever underestimate the power of feathers, especially when combined with brilliant Swarovski crystals to adorn accessories. From an elegant collared coat to heels you’ll want to dance all night in, women’s fashions get sophisticated this season. And don’t forget the little ones: an embellished dress with layers of tulle is perfect for the tots.
First up: this ombré silk coat by Carolyn Rowan. Ostrich feathers and crystals – need we say more? Its Art Deco-inspired collar, complete with dozens of beaded Swarovski crystals, is such a beauty, you’ll be reluctant to check it at the door. And perhaps you don’t need to: team with tailored trousers and a silk camisole for a modern take on party dressing.
Also party-ready are these ‘Odette’ heels by British shoe brand Jimmy Choo. Each ballet pink pair features 840 Swarovski crystals and pendants – including 64 on the toe alone – as well as crystal-encrusted straps to gracefully encircle the ankle and a heel with embroidered lace and yet another constellation of crystals. And because crystals and lace alone aren’t enough, an oversized plume and oversized crystal on the toe finishes the look.
Of course, special occasions call for special designs for everyone – even for the little ones. Petit Italia 1973 is an Italian specialist in occasionwear for kids between 0 and 16, and this baby girl’s dress features Swarovski Hotfix Flatback crystals sprinkled over the bodice for just a hint of festive-season sparkle.
