Christmas is a time of giving. A time to reward those you love and to show them just how important they are and how much you care for them. But wait a moment, what about you? Don’t you deserve something nice?

If 2022 has been a challenge, or even if it’s been a hugely enriching period, perhaps it’s you who really merits some great stylish treats this festive season. The best thing about buying yourself Christmas presents is that you’ll never feel that disappointment of seeing a recipient attempt to fool you into thinking that they are indeed very happy with what’s beneath the wrapping paper.

Do you consider yourself something of a fashionista? Do you attempt to keep up with the fashion cycle throughout the year? Do you find yourself struggling to meet the demands of the regular upgrades needed to keep up with the seasonal trends? Then maybe you need to adjust your way of thinking.

This Christmas, look to get yourself essential accessories that can act as the catalyst to your wardrobe. Either these new additions will give your existing outfits a new lease of life, or they could be the start of a whole new you. The critical aspect here is to let the accessories take the lead, thereby keeping your overall clothing costs down.

Here are seven stylish accessories to get you started this Christmas.

Personalized Jewelry

The gift of jewelry is, quite rightly, synonymous with luxury, and if you double down by selecting an item that has a personalized element, then you’ll find that the accessory you now hold in your hands is something of a Christmas miracle.

How about getting yourself a stylish custom name necklace that makes an impact the moment you walk in the room or breeze down the high street? This is the ultimate gift to give yourself, which will more than likely offer items in your closet a whole new perspective.

Stylish Extra Long Scarves

It’s no doubt gotten chillier in your area in recent weeks, and this accessory will keep you snug and warm as well as see you as a trendsetter. The key here is to be bold, and that means bright colors, and don’t be afraid to go long here. You can always wrap the scarf around yourself for extra protection from the elements.

Get yourself a lovely wool blend and consider an elegant checked pattern, and look for scarves that feel luxurious to the touch.

Classy Leather Gloves

This winter, why not make sure to show your hands some love? We can’t get enough of leather gloves, and there are a million and one different ways and styles to approach this winter accessory trend.

Dark colors are best here, and you should go for those with a faux-fur trim, which elevates these gloves to another stratosphere. Great for walks to work, a night on the town, and the occasional impromptu snowball fight!

Cashmere Beanie

Headwear is crucial at this time of the year for two reasons. Firstly, you’ll want to keep your head warm as the temperature drops (while also not ruining the way your hair looked when you locked your front door), and secondly, so that you can make the ultimate fashion statement.

We like these playful cashmere beanies, and they are actually great for daywear and for your cold trips into and back from the office. There’s no need to select darker colors here; a nice warm beige is a good starting point you should look to match the style to your gloves.

Oversized Sophisticated Sunglasses

Yes, the weather has gotten colder, but the sun will certainly still be making an appearance, and it can prove very crisp and awkward for your eyes. That’s why sunglasses should form a crucial part of your overall winter accessory approach.

Oversized is still very much in, and the chunkier, the better. Great for those post-Christmas party hangover days and also ideal when matched with many of the accessories we’ve mentioned above. All in all, your look may envelop you so that you’ll be akin to the invisible man or woman, albeit in a rocking outfit that people can’t ignore!

Snug Snow Boots

We absolutely love this playful accessory trend, which is very much back in for 2022 and 2023. These boots will not only keep your feet snug, but if you are doing it properly, they’ll stretch far up your legs, giving them all the winter protection they’ll ever need.

While these may look more ready for the skiing season, they are also hugely popular on the high street, so get involved. These are available from high-end designers like Stella McCartney, and Prada has got involved, but there are, of course, high street outlets that will offer excellent, less expensive alternatives that will be just as effective at attracting the right sort of attention.

Ear Muffs

Yes, you read that correctly. Retro fashions, as the name suggests, never go out of style, and the humble ear muffs are making a roaring return at precisely the point where you can’t live without them.

Here you want to really treat yourself and your ears, so the fluffier, the better. We suggest avoiding garish colors here, and if you want to go down the high-end route, then Fendi and Karl Lagerfeld have released sumptuous options to consider, but Zara and Ugg are just as delightful and, of course, a fraction of the cost.

Reviving the 1920s vintage dress: How to achieve a modern chic look

Published

on

MARY ART DECO FRINGE DRESS IN BLACK GOLD

The 1920s was a decade of great change, both socially and fashion-wise. Women were breaking free from traditional societal norms and embracing a more liberated lifestyle. This new way of thinking was reflected in the fashion of the time, with shorter hemlines, looser clothing, and a focus on comfort. The iconic flapper dress, characterized by its dropped waist and fringe, became a symbol of the era, and the 1920s vintage dresses in general, were a reflection of the new found freedom and liberation of women at the time.

Today, the 1920s vintage dress look is experiencing a resurgence in popularity. Many fashion designers and brands are incorporating elements of the 1920s aesthetic into their modern collections. So how can you incorporate this vintage look into your own wardrobe?

First, start with the silhouette. The 1920s was all about a slimmer, more streamlined look. To achieve this, look for dresses with a dropped waist and a straight, A-line skirt. These dresses will give you the illusion of a longer, leaner figure.

Next, consider the materials and prints. The 1920s was a time of great experimentation in textile design. Look for dresses made from silk, satin, or velvet, and adorned with geometric patterns and Art Deco-inspired designs.

Accessories are also key to achieving the 1920s vintage look. A simple pair of pearl earrings or a beaded necklace will add a touch of elegance. A cloche hat or a feather headband will complete the look.

When it comes to shoes, choose a pair of T-strap heels or Mary Jane pumps. These styles were popular in the 1920s and will give your outfit a vintage feel.

It’s also important to remember that the 1920s vintage dress look can be adapted to suit different occasions. A simple shift dress can be dressed up with statement jewelry and heels for a formal event, or dressed down with a denim jacket and flats for a more casual look.

Finally, don’t be afraid to mix vintage and modern pieces. The 1920s vintage dress look can be updated and made more contemporary by pairing it with a modern accessory, such as a pair of sneakers or a leather jacket.

Overall, the 1920s vintage dress look is a timeless and versatile style that can be easily incorporated into modern fashion. With a few key elements, such as a dropped waist silhouette, geometric patterns, and the right accessories, you can achieve a vintage look that is both stylish and on-trend. So why not give it a try and see how you can make this vintage look work for you!
