We are bringing you the latest show stopping patterns from burda style magazine’s December 2012 issue. In this collection the motto is more is more! More delicate shades of gold. More black to create a striking contrast. More leather, more duchess, more edginess for those holiday parties. These designs are for women who live on the edge and want to be stylish, trendy, and classic all at the same time.
Here is the lovely Lurex Blazer. While the idea for the fitted jacket is copied from him, everything else about it absolute femininity. Just take for example the black and gold matte-shine lurex. It is double-breasted with wide lapels of duchess satin and slimming section seams.
Dolce & Gabbana shows us how to elegantly wear gold sequins. We love this sequin maxi skirt from their boudoir presentation.
This Deep V Top, made of black fine knit fabric with an elegant metallic effect, has what it takes to become a new favorite in your wardrobe. It upgrades shirts and trousers in seconds. Note the fashionable details such as the deep V-neckline, the stylish wrap effect, and the peplum. Try wearing it with a glimmering skirt like this Sequin Skirt. The cut is as straight forward as possible; slightly flared, with the darts only laid in tucks, and a sewn-on waistband of petersham ribbon.
Every woman needs a Little Black Dress. Anyone who has this dress hanging in her wardrobe need never wonder she’s going to wear to a party. The black dress of 2012 is sleeveless and features an angled empire seam, a gathered center seam along the bust, and a nicely flared skirt.
Brocade, the fabric that fashion dreams are not made of. Why? It shines magically and makes an elegant statement, particularly when cut so exquisitely. Here it is used for a hip-length Jacket, its edges bordered with petersham ribbon. It is brought in around the waist with a lovely tie belt. Try wearing it with a lace Ruffled Skirt. Ballerina meets rock chick! This double-layered, two-length skirt in tulle lace is a real eye catcher. It features gold metallic effects and a scalloped hemline. The taffeta petticoat provides a stylish opaque underlay. This skirt looks very smart with a black turtleneck and gold statement neck piece.
We adore this Dolce & Gabbana look, and how they used black and gold together.
The magic is in the details of this Dress with its elegant gold metallic fabric. The subtle draping at the waist impresses, while the short sleeves and knee-length, flared skirt emphasizes the sleek silhouette. This dress particularly suits taller women and is available in tall sizes.
What better to pair with this elegant dress than a killer pair of Jeffery Campbell Heels.
How does a simple Tank become the highlight of the evening? it makes a glamorous appearance in sparkling gold sequins and chiffon. All edges are bordered with satin bias tape. Rock this top with a pair of these ankle-length, extra-narrow cut stretch nappa leather Trousers. They are even embellished with edgy horizontal zip pockets!
This holiday season, try wearing some sequins to your parties! We love these couture styles shown by Valentino.
With this Dress it’s hard to know where to look first! the V-neck down to the waist? The narrow 3/4 sleeves? The subtle wrap-effect? The small sequins? Or the large imitation leather ones with matte sheen? Maybe it’s the short skirt, either way everything about this skirt is just right!
