This Holiday Season, Curate a Collection That’s “Red Haute”

The holidays should feel fun, festive, and effortless; so, whether you’re a fan of chic black and neutrals, sizzling metallics or the brilliance of bold red, there are a wealth of options available to create the entrance-making moment you desire.

Kick off your holiday style strategy with the color that’s equal part’s powerful and sophisticated: the brilliance of rich red. For a look that’s sure to be the star of your closet for seasons to come, Gucci’s red velvet suit from its 100th-anniversary Aria collection is a design that’s instantly luxe and sure to turn heads. If floral prints set your heart aflutter, Alice + Olivia’s Tayla Mini Dress with cross-back straps is crafted in a rose print of rich reds and pinks; pair it with an alternating floral print in similar tones for a truly modern look.

For the ultimate in timeless chic, one choice always ranks high on the holiday-dressing list of stylish women: the beauty of basic black. A Turtleneck Evening Dress from Ralph Lauren Collection is the perfect blend of sheer and opaque, a supremely elegant design crafted of easy-to-wear jersey and featuring a sheer neckline and sleeves, with beveled-glass back buttons for just a touch of sparkle.

If you’re seeking a truly entrance-making look, few design details compete with the shine of metallics. It’s no accident that shimmering fabrics make their appearance just as fashion fans begin to think about holiday dressing; it’s the perfect look-at-me touch, equally festive and confident. From Paris-based IRO, the Claireta sheer metallic printed top is the perfect combination of sultry and subtle, crafted in a geometric print in a black and silver silk blend that offers just the right quantity of sheer, while its long sleeves and turtleneck styling allow you to feel elegantly covered. Likewise, Herve Leger’s Foil Ottoman mini dress feels sophisticated with its tutleneck and exaggerated long sleeves, yet celebratory thanks to its rich gold hue, ribbed texture and fun mini fit.

Prefer to make a statement by dressing neutral this holiday season? There’s a show-stopping look that’s calling your closet: Gucci’s The Hacker Project maxi GG hourglass jacket adds boldness to beige with its iconic Balenciaga silhouette, Gucci codes in unique creations and stunning brown leather trims. The limited-edition pieces from Alessandro Michele’s latest collection also include a skirt and pantaleggings – wear all three for a truly memorable head-to-toe ensemble.

And then, it’s all about the finishing touches. The warmth of yellow or rose gold is exquisite when paired with a variety of colors, but it looks especially great when you’re considering red or black for holiday parties. David Yurman is sure to feel festive, no matter whether you’re choosing pieces from its ultra-versatile Stax collection – but if you’re feeling especially celebratory, don’t miss the gold and diamond jewels from Yurman’s Starburst collection, inspired by fireworks. From Cartier, the Clash de Cartier collection takes a modern-meets-minimalist approach to rose-gold jewelry, in tactile pieces often embellished with diamonds. Gentlemen can enjoy a touch of gold courtesy of Cartier, with the rose-gold case of the Pasha de Cartier watch adding just the right amount of shine to the wrist.

Of course, that’s only the beginning of the possibilities for festive fashion moments at Aventura Mall. For more information on our luxury retailers, call (305) 935-1110.
