The pins we can’t stop talking about on WL’s Pinterest page.
By Mary Eileen Barber
Though we’re not too far into November, it’s never too soon to start thinking about party outfits, and our Pinterest is full of ideas. Whether it’s one starlet’s chic, bold choice or a luxe look in booties, look to WL’s Pinterest for best looks to get you through the holiday party circuit.
Board: “Fall Looks”
What: Emma Watson in Dior Haute Couture
Why we love it: Emma Watson is adorable, and she’s wearing a simple, full-skirted, strapless black party dress with a sweetheart neckline — over pants! Pairing dresses with pants is a little trend that’s on our radar these days, especially with the temperature dropping. For this look, proportion is key and Emma, with her petite build, pulls it off well, adding simple jewelry and pointy pumps (very on point this season). Would you do the dress-and-pants combo?
Board: “Party Fashion”
What: DVF ‘Carpreena’ mini dress
Why we love it: This little dress may have been meant for a spring fling, but we love it for holiday parties, too. The subtle sheen of the lemon-yellow jacquard offset by a clean, white background would make a glitzy statement with some diamonds (or tasteful CZs) and a cream cashmere wrap and tights. Even better, pair with all-black tights, suede pumps and either a fitted long-sleeve tee underneath or a fur loop at the neck. We love the ’60s up-do, too.
Board: “Fab Shoes”
What: alice + olivia ‘Donnie’ hair-calf booties
Why we love it: With its gorgeous black calf hair, gold zip and pointed metallic cap toe, these killer high-heel booties give off a sort of Western cowgirl-meets-modern space woman vibe. We also love that these combine two trends in one: the macro classic calf hair with the micro of the metallic cap toe. Wear these with a pair of black leather pants, a simple shift dress, or pair with jeans and a biker jacket or blazer. Really, the possibilities are endless for these booties.
