As Retail Therapists, we know nothing soothes frazzled fashion nerves like a Little Black Dress. Our gift to you this year is our Halston Heritage caped LBD styled for three occasions: work, friends, and family.
Work: Work can be a tricky affair, since you need a balance of formal yet conservative. We love this cape dress belted and topped off with a bright blazer- like our hot pink Elizabeth and James blazer. Throw on some black tights and heels to elongate your legs (see here), and add some pop with some amazing statement jewelry, like this London Manori druse necklace, et voila! A fun yet professional holiday look!
Friends: Pop off those tights, throw on some tan, strappy heels (another way to make legs look miles long!), and paint on some bright lippy (red is our go-to, but a bright fuschia would also be fun!). Trade that black blazer in for a leather moto-jacket and fun clutch, too! Amp up the jingle-factor with some layered gold chains (the set shown here is actually two sets of chains from RT that look amazing together!) and let that hair hang loose and wild.
Family: Lots of food, nieces and nephews, cousins, grandparents, parents, etc.- this needs to be the easiest look of all. But, going easy doesn’t mean sacrificing style (you knew that already). This time, we’re pairing the LBD with OTK (over the knee) boots for a fun play on proportions. We say skip the tights for this look, but if you decide to go with it (there are colder places than San Francisco, we hear), try a sheer, patterned pair to make the look a little playful. We’ve cinched it with a pastel pink leather belt from RT, and added our purple statement chandelier earrings for some extra drama. Then, to finish the look off, this cropped tweed jacket is a fun topper.
And, don’t forget to keep things chic even while travelling from soiree to soiree! Keep warm with this Theory coat!
