STYLE FILES: HOLIDAY 2018 TRENDS

The transformation from spooky to sparkly seemed to have happened overnight. From twinkling lights to peppermint-infused beverages, the festive season has slowly emerged upon us… along with all those holiday party invites.

This party season, slip into something a little more comfortable and a lot more glam with 80’s-inspired influences and old-world Hollywood silhouettes.

Order up a cocktail in feminine sheer blouses, dance the night away in chic jumpsuits, or be the hostess with the most in luscious velvet.

Here are our 5 trends to dazzle in this holiday season.

1. SHEER NECESSITY
The delicate allure of a sheer blouse transitions perfectly from day to night. It’s a textural contrast that works under a blazer for work, and is a feminine revealer for drinks or dinner afterwards. Complete this subtle luxe look with some jewel-embellished pants and lace-up booties.

2. SHIMMER INTO THE NIGHT
Shimmer into the spotlight in daring mini-lengths that are reminiscent of the iconic 1980’s party dress. Draped and wrapped in shiny, metallic luxe or just a touch of gold… ‘tis the season to sparkle! Go full-on glam in this sequined mini or add a touch of sheen in this shoulder-baring metallic blouse. Finish the look with thigh-high boots and a chained clutch.

3. DARK ROMANCE
The little black dress has been revamped with lace, fringe, and opulent velvet to create a dramatic, sensual mood. Dance the night away in a playful fringe mini or a lace cold-shoulder option paired with some pointy-toe ankle booties.

4. ALL THE FEELS
The rich, textural indulgence of velvet is the opulent finish that elevates this season’s cocktail dresses. Pyjama-inspired chic makes a relaxed, head-to-toe statement in a velvet evening suit. For a more feminine option, opt for this gorgeous wrap dress. Add an 80’s spin to your ensemble with some bold earrings and block-heeled mules.

5. EMERALD CITY
Emerald is the pulsing colour of the season. Whether you dare to be seen in head-to-toe green with an elegant jumpsuit, or embrace this captivating hue in separates, you are sure to be noticed for all the right reasons. Give your outfit that extra festive pop by pairing it with neutral accessories, such as these suede booties and a boxy clutch.
