Halloween is out, Christmas is in, and just like that: party season is upon us. This season, prepare to postpone party dress pandemonium and sidestep #StilettoGate, because dressing down is the new going out.
For AW16, we’re all about the juxtaposition of glam-casj: the glittering take on smart casual. We’re making a case for trainers and tuxedos in lieu of mini-hem mayhem, with it-girl style taking centre stage.
Ever dreamt of slipping on your runners and calling it legit night-out clobber? Now is the time, ladies! (For those of you nervously nibbling the paint off your Saturday night nails, don’t sweat it, vertiginous heels will also look flaming, with our high-octane occasionwear.)
This look is all about channelling confidence and style in equal measures. The rulebook is no longer a thing: partywear is what you make it. Whether you’re heading to a house party or throwing shapes on the dance floor, our stepped-hem denim, and colour-blocked sweatshirt will look slamming. We’ve teamed ours with metallic casuals shoes, but throw on some pointed courts and you’ll still be winning.
Missing that high-shine factor? Our stores have enough metallics to outlast the 12 days of Christmas. From spaghetti-strapped shimmering numbers to high-waist foil skirts, and glittering knitwear, you’ll be twinklier than a Christmas tree… just much, much chicer, obvs.
Heading to the ball? Well, the times they are a changing, because this season we’re crushing on formalwear-with-a-twist. Luxe suiting is the one for those who prefer tailoring to trailing trains, so throw your ball gowns out the window (not literally) and slip on slim-cut trousers and double-breasted blazers. Ours are coming through in silken fabrics or brocade finishes for super sleek appeal. Guys aren’t the only certified suit-wearers, you know?
And, we haven’t even started on accessories. Metallic clutches, sequin-clad mini bags, iridescent heels, and punchy high-shine patents are the perfect way to style up your off the charts festive apparel.
