Holiday Style in the City

Holiday Style in the City 10The Holidays are the perfect excuse to get dressed up – wear the party dress, add extra sparkle and rock those high heels. This season I’m excited to embrace the crimson red trend. We saw this look in so many designers’ collections for Fall 2018 and Christmas is the ideal time to bring out this beautiful shade of red.Holiday Style in the City 6Holiday Style in the City 9Holiday Style in the City 3Holiday Style in the City 12Holiday Style in the City 5The trick to wearing the crimson red trend is to incorporate various textures in the colour tone. I combined this pretty lace dress with a red leather jacket and accessorized with a sparkly minaudiere purse, black patent heels and a pear shaped ring. If all over red seems to bold for you, try wearing one key piece. A cocoon coat, over the knee boots or a cozy sweater would be the perfect way to try this trend.

Lyndi’s Fashion Fact: What is a minaudiere?! It’s a small decorative purse, with a hard outer casing that opens on a hinge closure.

It’s hard to pass by a store without taking a quick look to see what they have in. WINNERS is the type of shop you want to visit often because the merchandise is constantly evolving. If you see something you love – buy it! It probably won’t be there if you come back later.

While finding my perfect holiday look for this style story at WINNERS, I crossed so many people off my shopping list. There is such a variety of merchandise at the moment, I even found Christmas cards and wrapping paper! Taking a trip to my local WINNERS definitely took some of the stress out of Holiday shopping for me this year, and I would encourage you to do the same. You might even find a little Christmas present for yourself. Tis’ the season to indulge! Holiday Style in the City 1

  • You look beautiful, Lyndi! I love this outfit so much. I’m not going to lie: I think I’d feel WAY too self conscious wearing an all-red ensemble out and about. But this photo shoot makes me think that I could totally pull it off!… just maybe not as well as you :o) Also, your ‘fashion facts’ are my favourite. Thanks so much for making this blog post fun to read and view AND informative!

    • Eire, you are such a sweetheart! Thank you SO much for the wonderful words. You made my day!!
      I wasn’t sure I could pull off the All Red look either, but now I’m loving it. I’m so glad you enjoy my ‘Fashion Facts.’ I’m going to be doing more in the new year, on instagram stories too 🙂

      Hope you guys have a wonderful Holiday season. I’m sure its a bit different being in San Fran this year.
      Wishing you all the best in 2018 xo

    You know well how to pair outfits to amp up their effect. The way you’ve paired your lace dress with a leather jacket is amazing. You’ve inspired me to experiment with the same color tone.
