5 Easy Holiday Looks from 5F
Happy Holidays! Is that you hiding under the mistletoe?
Holiday parties are in full swing here in New York, and we’re beginning to exhaust our standard day to night looks. Fortunately there’s 5F to the rescue. Using basic black as our base, let’s think of how to expand our standard holiday style using nothing more than the right kind of accessory.
ADD ANIMAL PRINT
It’s Linda’s favorite neutral for a reason… animal print is one of the easiest ways to give your Acne cocktail dress an unexpected twist with this Charlotte Olympia clutch— particularly when you add an edgy Giuseppe Zanotti boot and Lanvin’s colorful rhinestone necklace.
SHINE ON IN ICED BLUE
While it may not seem exactly holiday obvious, we’re digging metallic blues this season. Pair midnight blue Helmut Lang leather leggings with icy accessories and a pale Bryan Boy for Adrienne Landau scarf.
SHIMMER WITH MIXED METALLICS
Who said you couldn’t mix metallics? Here we’re mixing all kinds of shine — from Milly’s onyx sequin dress to a glittering Edie Parker clutch. Pull it all together with magenta pumps like Tom Ford’s and festive Lanvin earrings.
PEP IT UP WITH PEPLUM
Is there a more party silhouette? We love this Elizabeth and James uptown/downtown combo because it so easily translates from your Fifth Avenue fete to your Soho holiday bash. Finish off with silvery accessories and another one of Bryan Boy for Adrienne Landau scarves.
OH, CHRISTMAS EVE
This Marc by Marc Jacobs dress is conservative enough for Midnight Mass yet the red Valentino pumps, sequined Alice + Olivia clutch and dangling Oscar de la Renta earrings give it the right kind of modern twist.
