There are moments for the tacky Christmas sweater vests…and then there are all the other moments. You’re probably so full of holiday cheer that you’re ready to splash out a little, but we want that splash to last you even after the tree’s on the curb and the menorah’s packed away. The right designer holiday look can be a treat now that will prove to be a solid investment even when the seasons change. We say choose the essential element that speaks to you about this time of year, enjoy it, and then keep the spirit with you.
Bows and Boxes
These holiday associations are sweet ideas this time of year and fashion forward when you put them in any other context. Consider this Prada Tessuto Fiocco Bow Tote or the Louis Vuitton Petite Malle as gifts you’d get to open over and over and over again.
If Christmas is your thing and you just can’t resist the call of red and green…go for it! If you engage this palette in the fine form of something like a Gucci Ophidia Suede Web Shoulder Bag, the results will sing out like Christmas when you want them to, and they’ll be recognized as the iconic Gucci stripes the other 11 months of the year.
Or, if blue and silver are your holiday colors, this classic Goyard St. Louis look might speak to you for similar reasons.
Black and White
No matter your holiday persuasion, we love black and white for the wintry approach of the New Year. Could the combo be better represented than in this Louis Vuitton City Steamer or Chanel Evening Art Embellished bag?
Just picture the twinkle lights glinting off of you in this Chanel Jeweled Brooch.
Or, for a different kind of sparkle, we love the snowy suggestion of this Valentino Rockstud Medium Tote.
This Chanel Iridescent Chevron Drawstring bag adds serious glam to any evening…
While this cheery Louis Vuitton Avalon Vernis might make us picture you as the leading lady in a Hallmark channel Christmas special.
Lo How You E’er Blooming
Vogue picked a Gucci Dionysus Blooms as one of its best hands-free bags for holiday parties. Although, we might have suggested this one for its slightly more seasoned feel.
Maybe you’re not in for the full holiday velvet dress (or maybe you are!) but a soft textured handbag would be the perfect festive touch. For this, we love the Gucci GG Marmont velvet.
