On top of buying gifts for others and receiving them too, treat yourself and celebrate in style. Though select couturiers are launching collections of ugly Christmas sweaters, I rather invest in pieces to continue rendering trendsetting looks after the holiday season. As always, I’m the type of person who buys something because I like it instead of for the sake of an occasion. So, I opt for sartorially engaging in the spirit, complimenting red and green tones with neutral and golden shades. By layering Alexander McQueen’s skull-print silk-chiffon scarf against the TopShop’s red tapestry jacket, the viridian shades are guaranteed to pop. While Michael Kors boldly patterned ikat-jacquard pants will bring home the gold, clashing them with Charlotte Olympia’s equally outstanding red velvet Dolly pumps will make you the centerpiece at any party and outlast the festivities (the bell-embellished strap is removable).
