Holt Renfrew’s Fashion Director Ketevan Gvaramadze lists her favourite looks for this holiday season. “Don’t let the cold weather keep you from looking great and feeling fashionable at the same time,” says Gvaramadze.
On those snowy, cold Edmonton days, cozy up in one of this season’s biggest trends – oversized knitwear. Holt Renfrew Edmonton has a great variety of scrumptious knits from brands like Vince and T by Alexander Wang. According to Gvaramadze, the best way to wear these oversized knits is to layer them over something a little bit more soft and feminine. In this look, Holts has styled See by Chloe’s melange knit sweater over an asymmetrical paisley silk skirt, also by See by Chloe. On days where it’s not wet and slushy, Gvaramadze suggests pairing this look with beautiful suede thigh-high boots. Complete the look with Chloe’s patchwork Faye bag and take the season’s exotic bohemian trend from the runways to everyday. For holiday parties, Gvaramadze recommends adding a touch of sparkle to your wardrobe with some of this season’s most covetable accessories. The Valentino star sequin tango pump is the perfect way to jazz up your LBD (little black dress). “The round toe block heel is a new footwear silhouette we are seeing and perfect for a night out with your friends and family.” If you’re in the mood for something a little more understated, play with texture, specifically velvet. This fall there are an array of velvet accessories done in beautiful shades of red and bordeaux. These velvet Prada platforms in red are one of this season’s most lusted after shoes and are available across Canada on holtrenfrew.com. Pair these amazing shoes with one of Self Portrait’s signature lace dresses. “And to complete any holiday party look add a bold cherry red lip!” says Gvaramadze. The most important trend for Edmonton this season is to stay warm! Bundle up in Holt Renfrew’s amazing selection of outerwear. A perfect way to stay warm and chic at the same time is to wear a parka from Moncler. These down filled parkas are super light and extremely warm – a necessity when facing Canada’s polar vortex. Add in your chunky sweater and a great pair of fur lined boots and you’re set!
When dressing for milder days, try out one of Max Mara’s beautiful double faced cashmere coats. These toppers are meant to be worn oversized and wrapped with a belt. Max Mara has the most perfect shade of camel and this is a classic coat that will never go out of style.
According to Gvaramaze, “this holiday season, invest in key pieces that you can mix into your current wardrobe to make it look new and fresh.”
