Taking inspiration from Christian Dior’s classic New Look from the 1950s, it’s the season to make a statement with beautiful silhouettes, chic dress and stylish suits.
Adding in touches of tweed, leopard print and luxe faux fur details, more is more and it is time to let opulent glamour be the star of the show.
With a festive colour palette red, pink, green and white it is time to celebrate the season and go bold this Christmas.
This classic retro style will suit every body shape, accentuating curves and enhancing the feminine form. It is time to have fun with your clothes and embrace the festivities!
