7. Kitten heels
What makes your legs longer but allows you to dance all night as well? That’s right: the kitten heels, with their party-perfect height and comfort. For the holidays, we count on T-strap sandals with a medium heel. As for colours, the sky is the limit: pick anything, from classic black to trendy colour block.
8. Oversized sunnies
You can’t really feel glamorous without the number one diva accessory: the oversized sunnies. Not only are they great for the actual party, but you’ll be glad to find them in your purse the morning after, when your make-up is a bit runny and you’re overtired. We just love cat eye: they’re chic and they look good on any face shape.
9. Coloured blazer
A little black dress is known as a wardrobe saviour, but how can you spice it up? This is where the blazer comes in – not the dull, office blazer, but the fun, colourful one! Coral, electric blue, even neon green can work, depending on where you’re going.
The star of all parties, and your greatest help on bad hair days: the headpiece. Make it oversized if you want to turn heads, or pick something sweet and subtle if you’d rather keep to yourself. Look at Derby Day for inspiration!
11. Cutout back
One of fashion’s best kept secrets is the cutout back. Not only it is unexpected and sexy, but it’s also airy and fresh. Pick tops or dresses in virtually any fabric, and you do the old Coco Chanel trick of adorning your back with your favorite necklace, only worn backwards.
12. One piece swimsuit
If you plan on relaxing on the beach for the holidays, do so wearing a one piece swimsuit in quirky, digital prints. Think animals, galaxies far, far away, life-like flora, and even scenery. Just in case, you can dress it up with a chiffon maxi and some bracelets!
