Focus: Burda Style Issue 12/2020 - Merry Christmas!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and we have selected some beautiful models with delicate folkloric details to add a bit of pop to your holiday look!

Skirt 105A and Sweater 108A

Jupe 105A et veste 108A


This gorgeous pencil skirt cut from shimmery fabric is the perfect statement piece for your holiday party. And look, even the colors are festive! The added bow to the front makes it all the more a super seasonal gift. There is a slit in the back for added comfort and the stretch cotton ensures this piece falls perfectly. And the model to the right is proof that you can deck the halls in both style and comfort! This long sweater in soft wool fabric with large shawl collar and deep front pockets is further placed into the holiday spotlight thanks to its velvety polka dots and pretty ornamental flowers around the neckline. We’re fans, that’s for sure.

Skirt 106 and Blouse 101A

Jupe 106 et blouse 101 A


The bold contrast of blouse and Balkan-inspired vest make this pencil skirt in faux leather an absolute delight. Flattering in shape and style, this piece is further decorated with delicate antique-looking lace around the bottom hem. Pair this skirt with the top for a holiday look that cannot be beat. To the right, the flowy blouse emblematic of traditional Central European style captivates us with its stunning embroidered braiding and pretty tassel ties. Light and airy, this top is sure to be a Yuletide hit. We love how it is both feminine and fun! The high ruffled neck and retro embroidered lace braiding on the sleeves and cuffs add just that extra touch of fine elegance.

Dress 109 and Dress 102A

Robe 109 et robe 102A


Draping in all its splendor is the leading element of this purple satin dress, as seen with its sweeping batwing sleeves that delicately hang over the bust’s hidden elastic band. The elastic waist of this fabulous model gives way to a fun swish skirt! If you are looking for something a bit different but just as nice, check out the lovely dress to the right. The generous cut gives way to pleats along the skirt, while the large sleeves gathered at the elbows and sweetheart neckline know just how to make us swoon. This model uses an exciting patterned fabric, though a block color would also do just the trick.

Dress 103A and Coat 104

Robe 103A et manteau 104


The sophisticated neckline with draped fabric to tie around the back is absolutely reminiscent of royalty. This model's pretty piping highlights the waistband and delicately long gigot sleeves. Pair it with a faux fur (very in this year) for a really sweet look. The coat to the right is worked to resemble a veritable sheep skin with its simple cut and long lapels at the collar. Like any authentic sheep skin, the rough edges add to this particularly cool style.

Gown 111 and Jacket 113

Robe 111 et manteau 113


Va-va-voom! Glamour and class unite with this floor-length dress. Incorporated darts show off a perfect hour-glass figure, and the delicate braiding along the back is a discreetly elegant touch. The large boat collar and sparkly fabric make this model insanely seductive. It’s Christmas. Go all out. The nod to Russian folklore in the superb high collar jacquard jacket to the right is truly on point. Darts create a shapely, fitted form, and the piece buttons up with a gorgeous fastening. Ribbed pockets are placed in the front of this lovely model, and the flared open cuffs are just that final thing to make this piece the perfect holiday choice.
