Stylish, Sexy, Holiday Fashion
It's that time of year when the party scene comes alive! Early December to New Year's Eve, it seems every evening there's a special occasion calling for 'Festive Attire' or 'Black Tie'.
Holiday parties are the perfect time to pay homage to glitz and glam by choosing pieces which reflect the glow of Christmas lights. Perennial colour favourites such as jewel tones, daring reds, and classic blacks, are joined in harmony with deep burgundies, soft nudes, and midnight blues. With the help of Flirt Boutique, we will showcase a variety of looks highlighting the hottest and newest trends in holiday fashion.
We thought what better way to highlight the gilded fabrics and jewel tones reminiscent of pure Indian silks and jewellery than to shoot against the new hot-spot eatery- Nirvanna, a modern Indian/Pan-Asian fusion restaurant. According to Mahek Chatani proprietor of Nirvanna, "Indian food is appreciated all over the West Indies which goes back to the connection of India and the islands. Jamaicans love food with flavour and spices, so we at Nirvanna try to create a culinary connection with Jamaicans." Nirvanna will be hosting a special event for New Year's Eve, so please call for reservations.
This season's holiday fashion is being redefined, trending towards modern subtleties, minimalism, with emphasis on texture and cut. When we think of glam and luxe, we instinctively think of sequins, and rightfully so, but we now see streamlined sheen in soft moveable satins and silk taffetas. This proves to be a welcome alternative to the sometimes garish all-over sequins. Other textural fabrics include rich velvets and delicate lace which pay homage to the cyclical baroque trend.
Exaggerated A-line dresses are a welcome silhouette for the woman who celebrates her femininity and loves to play dress up. A less forgiving silhouette - the baring midriff - trend gets grown up in structured jumpsuits when it is balanced by a conservative hemline. Jumpsuits in stretch fabrics mature into more starched fabrics for a crisp, sophisticated look.
This Christmas, forget demure jewellery. Save dainty fine jewellery and opt for carefully selected statement pieces in necklaces, cuffs, and drop earrings. With more subtle apparel choices, accessories play a bigger part in achieving that completed finished look.
