Naughty and Nice

My collection of big woolly sweaters sure does get a workout during the holiday season. Unfortunately I can’t stay indoors and hibernate, as there are festive parties to attend – parties that prefer glitz and glam over warm and cozy. I may follow EcoSalon’s fashion editor Amy DuFault’s lead this winter and invest in a cape. How can you go wrong with a timeless piece that’s both trendy and keeps you protected from the elements?

Wondering you can turn up the heat on your own? Sans cape? I suggest going for a naughty and nice look. Piggybacked on the leather and lace trend that swept the scene earlier this year, choose a classic lace dress that has a bit of a body con shape and balance it with a hip leather jacket that acts as an edgy indoor layer. Finish off the look with over the knee platform heel boots.

This look is urban chic and sure to get checked off Santa’s list, as well as a few fashionistas who will be lusting over your confident cocktail attire.
