Hold onto your cocktail, darling … it’s all about ’50s glam this holiday season.
Think sophisticated styles like the vintage tuxedo jacket, lace peplum, leather leggings, bejeweled bags and statement rings. And for footwear, the chunky-heel bootie in velvet and the return of the ’50s point low-stiletto heel.
“Last season we saw full-on, head-to-toe bling, this season is more carefully edited with one item standing out,” says Mitchell Kass, founder of Trend Council, a Long Island-based company that provides trend analysis and design inspiration for designers and buyers. Holiday 2018 is all about luxury and separates that make a statement, says Kass.
“Bohemian looks are not as popular this season,” she says. “Sequin was so overplayed last year that is out and the bodycon/bondage dress is out too.”
For readers who want to get a similar look, Kass offers some practical advice before you shop: “Local boutiques and online retailers will carry these items, but be aware that some shops have a very long lead time on delivery and sizing will be different for each online store.”
