The first of winter’s snow has fallen gracefully on the ground, lights are strung up around the city, and it seems the world is ready once again for the holiday season. Editorials and fashion bloggers have turned their focus to holiday preparation and style, and in this space, that’s no exception. Shades of red, green and gold speckle shopping centers and holiday wardrobes. Joining in the spirits, I’ve partnered with Anne Fontaine presenting a luxury fashion gift guide with opulent gems to give or get, following the most exclusive of today’s fashion trends.
Anne Fontaine has presented an innovative collection of moody accessories with a dark, romantic edge.
Studded with golden chains, leather straps, rounded gems and feminine lace – these pieces are an experiential treat to give or to adorn yourself with over the holidays. In the collection, you’ll find a mesmerizing mix of intrinsic-medieval collars, belts, jewelry, scarves, brooches, shoes, sunglasses and my personal favorite – jeweled cufflinks in a variety of living forms. In the collection, you’ll find lush velvets, delicate lace, opulent jewels, thick furs, and edgy leather accessories.
These signature pieces are transforming this season’s holiday outfits into an evolution of inspired style that speaks from the innermost parts of being. This collection is not just about accessorizing, but rather revealing a part of yourself through creative expression that is truly unmatched in today’s flooded market of ordinary style. If you’re looking for something exceptional, the destination has been discovered.
Here are my holiday outfit ideas, capturing the essence of Anne Fontaine’s collection into a luxurious wardrobe experience for this season’s holiday events.
This first look is playfully romantic, with a daring edge. I’ve paired one of the Anne Fontaine blouses from their signature collection with lace-up leather shorts and tights for a mix of tailored chic and dark romance. The accessories are what makes the look pop. I’ve selected a lace-floral brooch to give the blouse a holiday feel, and paired with my favorite cufflinks from their holiday style guide collection. The jeweled insects are reminiscent of royalty with a nod towards Egypt’s ancient scarab beetles and sacred jewels of adornment. New to hit mainstream fashion for women, these cufflinks are not only a beautiful accent piece for your holiday style, they’re also a great gift for the women on your list that appreciate unorthodox beauty and style.
This second holiday look is by far the most opulent, with a golden and black-jewel collar and body chain from Anne Fontaine’s holiday accessory gift guide. A true statement piece, paired with their lace-up statement sleeve sweater dress, this is a must have for the more-is-more approach to luxury fashion. The fall-winter Anne Fontaine dresses also have a strong, dark-romance theme, and are designed
“…to take you from desk to dinner, with cocktail dresses, tailored dresses, and little black dresses finished with sophisticated details such as embroidery and lace” – Anne Fontaine
I’ve also layered over a whipstitch leather belt from the collection, giving the piece yet another layer of dark, material interest. If you’re planning to gift someone a piece of statement jewelry for the holidays, consider instead something more daring, and far more striking with this rich, extravagant accessory.
The last look is a minimalist fashion selection, with just enough of a voice to whisper subtly of holiday style. I’m wearing the same selection of Anne Fontaine blouses, paired with the Gaby fly cufflinks, same whipstitch leather belt, and an alternate floral brooch. Illustrating the versatility of luxury accessories, these pieces can be worn so many ways. Not only have they provided me some inspiration for holiday outfit ideas, they’re also pieces that can easily carry over into the rest of the seasons latest fashion trends for everyday wear. This brooch has a soft, romantic look from afar, with just enough edge in the black chain trim and leather blossom.
Overall, the Anne Fontaine x Day in my dreams holiday accessory gift guide has left me feeling inspired and bold, experimenting with luxury fashion trends. There are no rules. The limitations of today’s fashion trends are only in the mind. Embrace your individuality, and wear like you’ve never worn before. The blend of dark fantasy and tailored, romantic pieces from Anne Fontaine’s collection are the perfect embodiment of this movement.
