Banana Republic in the News
It's that time of the year again - the season loaded with all kinds of holiday engagements. Whether it's an office Christmas party, your mother-in-law's annual Hannukah get-together or a New Year's soiree with friends, there's usually not a lot of space on the social calendar in December and January. What are you going to wear to the big event(s) coming up?
Winter is all about muted colors - white snow, bare brown trees and dark, starry skies. But that doesn't mean your colors have to be muted. In fact, some of winter's hottest colors are deep, rich jewel tones like emerald, crimson, sapphire and magenta. Don't shy away from bold colors that will really stand out against a snowy backdrop - especially if you're off to a festive holiday party, where your brightness will only add to the joy of the season!
When getting ready for a winter soiree, don't forget about the sparkle. The season is right for crystal-clear diamonds, milky white pearls and all kinds of glittering jewels. Break out that cocktail ring and those dangling earrings - 'tis the season for shining. We recommend a glittering bracelet and metallic shoe combination for shimmer that's sexy and intriguing without being overwhelming.
Of course, if this is a New Year's party, throw caution to the wind and put on all the sparkle you can find. If the ball in Times Square is going to shine, so can you! In fact, New Year's could be the only time it's appropriate to wear that glittery-all-over dress with a diamond necklace and an armful of silver bangles, so embrace it.
There is one thing to consider in the winter that you don't consider in the summer, however - and that's warmth. You've got to stay toasty! If you want to stay warm but don't want to sacrifice sexiness, opt for a dress with a barely-there hem but long sleeves. (You can wear nude nylons to keep your legs from freezing.) If you'd rather wear a more modern dress, you can still keep warm by adding a fun overcoat. Try a knee-length trench for some old-school glamor.
