Every woman knows that adding even one coveted piece of clothing or accessory to her holiday wardrobe can help carry her through the 2012 festive season. The following holiday clothes and accessories should make you feel special as you attend this season’s parties.
This holiday party dress from BCBGMaxazria captures the Winter Wonderland look and will take you to any seasonal cocktail or dinner party. The dress features metallic floral lace, capped sleeves, tulle-and-lace ruffle on the sleeves and sides and a concealed back zipper. Pair with silver strappy shoes.
These multi-coloured bangles from Erin Tracy Designs Edge Collection are so versatile they’ll go with either silver or gold tones in your outfit and would look fabulous with a winter white or black dress at any Christmas party. Bangles come in silver, brass and black rhodium.
A classic little black dress is a must for the Christmas holiday 2012 season. The Adrianna Dress from Tory Burch has added spark with detailed lace at the back. You’ll find a Tory Burch store at Yorkdale Shopping Centre in Toronto.
Prada does perfume right and they’re latest release, Prada Candy, is no exception. The perfume’s notes include caramel, musk, vanilla and benjoin and, despite its name, is not unbearably sweet. The perfect finishing piece to your holiday outfit. A 2.7 oz. eau de parfum spray is available for $125.
This Italian-made infinity scarf from Marciano will look wonderful paired with either winter white, red or fine black wool coats. The 18″ wide metallic woven scarf is 36% polyester, 31% acrylic, 20% mohair and 13% nylon.
If you dig through jewellery hand-me-downs from your relatives, you may find something similar to this rhinestone choker necklace, which was a popular jewellery accessory in the 1940s. Rhinestones are making a huge comeback. This necklace from Juicy Couture will add star power to any evening dress. The necklace retails for $148.
Bobbi Brown’s Twilight Shimmer Nail Polish is a gunmetal, plum shade that would look great paired with off whites or solid black party attire and retails for $18.
