As we hurtle towards holiday season, the PORTER fashion team has found itself with something of a sartorial dilemma. On the one hand, we’re excited to get in the festive spirit and thoughts of glamorous gatherings and candlelit dinners are filling our minds. On the other, the temperature has taken a serious nosedive in London and New York and we’re desperately trying to stay warm – without sacrificing on style. Thankfully, this week’s new-in section is full of lust-worthy pieces that satisfy our many demands.
If it’s a showstopping party piece you’re after, look no further than Erdem’s floral-printed, one-shouldered gown. Cast in vibrant green and cinched at the waist with a sumptuous velvet bow, it’s a foolproof way to inject your after-dark look with some seasonal cheer. Subvert expectations, and ensure you can dance all night long, by pairing it with Jimmy Choo’s flat pointed pumps for an elegant but effortless take on evening dressing. Politely declining party invites in favor of mastering the art of hygge? Givenchy’s statement tiger-print knit works with everything from tailored pants to wide-leg jeans, and even over a floor-skimming silk slip dress. We’d happily spend the season cocooned in it. Just be sure to keep your look polished by finishing with a liberal helping of gold jewels – Completed Works’ origami-style earrings are top of our wish list right now.
