We are one month away from the party season, which means it is time to grab a hammer and smash your piggy bank or empty your savings account depending on where you keep your money. I always keep some cash on one side for the festive season, since it is the most expensive time of the year. Attending a fancy Christmas gala, intimate family dinner or hitting the clubs for New Years? Not sure what to wear? Look no further! I have lined up some stunning looks for the festive season. Virgos Lounge is a London based womenswear brand. They combine contemporary silhouettes, trends and colours with classic vintage styles to create unique statement pieces. There are a several things I really love about this brand; first of all it is affordable, prices ranging from 100 to 200 euros for a gown. I adore the heavy embroidery, which really reminds me of Indian and Arabic styles of embellishment. While some brands go overboard with embroidery and pay no attention to the quality of it, Virgos Lounge has created looks with just the right amount of sparkle. One important tip for this festive season is, to not go overboard on the bling and bedazzlements. Find the right balance between glamour and sophistication. You do not want to walk into a party looking like you borrowed the Christmas decorations from your Christmas tree and used them as your outfit.
I really like the variety of dresses available; from sexy figure hugging gowns to flirty and modest options. There are also heavily embroidered skirts, blouses, jumpsuits and trousers available…from metallic leggings to sequined tops and jackets…there is something for everyone.
My personal favorites are:
Denise Dress Blue: I am in love with the bat-sleeves and the embroidery. I also really like the way the skirt is draped. A very sophisticated, classic Hollywood type of look.
Erin Dress Green: Simply beautiful, the embroidered top, the long pleated skirt, the emerald green color. A modest and classy look I instantly fell in love with.
Metalica: Glamorous and perfect for those who want to stand out. Gold/metallic skirt with sexy thigh high split. Combine it with a simple black top, kitten heels and a bold lip color and your ready to make heads turn.
Vivi Jumpsuit: This jumpsuit would look great on tall and slender ladies. Beautifully sequined/beaded top with sexy V-neck and fitted trousers. A must wear!
Check out the gallery and let me know which item is your favorite. I am thinking about going for the Denise Dress in blue!
