Perfect Party Dressing

Nights are darker and December will soon be upon us which means party season is imminent. Dressing successfully for a party or evening occasion can be testing as finding the perfect dress or outfit that combines impact and comfort in equal measure is a fashion challenge for even the keenest shopper. Yet at year’s end we are all in need of some glamour and dare we suggest it, a little hedonism too.

The origins of festive celebrations in December date back to pre-Christian times when the winter solstice was marked with feasting. The solstice may have been immensely important because communities were not certain of living through the winter. In temperate climates, the midwinter festival was the last feast celebration, before deep winter began, so the urge to party at this time of year is embedded in our DNA.

At Alias Tom Women, we have a stunning selection of party pieces to ensure that you are dressed for maximum impact regardless of the seasonal occasion. Black is one of the strongest shades this season for evening wear: fabrics range from velvet, to silk to sequins and styles from knee to full length. Statement pieces in black include Magaschoni’s embellished sleeve cocktail dress with a sophisticated skirt slit or their black jersey sheath with lace inserts. For Black Tie, Irish designer Roisin Linnane has a dramatic floor sweeping evening dress in her signature black crepe which is timelessly elegant and also available in a soft mink shade.

For those looking to channel the season’s trend for masculine styling Schumacher have a strking tunic and trousers in a high tech stretch that look fabulous with a statement brooch. Sleek and simple it channels Audrey Hepburn elegance with an understated edge. Other party looks from Schumacher include their rich ox-blood Line dress in silk and stretch wool and their digital print Crystal shirt and trousers – both will make a notable impact at any event.

Navy is another key shade for Autumn Winter 2013 and both Magaschoni and No Man’s Land offer blue velvet dresses for evening. Magaschoni’s is in a pretty devorée while the No Man’s Land version is a soft stretchy shift.

Alternatively, if you don’t want to look for a complete look and simply want a great party top to wear with a classic black trousers or pencil skirt, Alias Tom Women has a stylish selection of jewel encrusted tops from Magaschoni, sequinned tops from Pierre Balmain and silk blouses from Schumacher. Any of these will give existing seperates and immediate lift.

Let the celebrations begin.

Women’s Winter Coats

 

Rene Lezard Coat 5686845

“A man with a good coat upon his back meets with a better reception than he who has a bad one.”
Samuel known as Dr Johnson.

We have enjoyed a long mild autumn this year but temperatures are finally dropping and there is a crisp bite in the air which means it’s time to invest in a new winter coat. A coat is a major purchase so it is important to choose a style that you truly love, that fits you perfectly and that suits your lifestyle needs.

Rene Lezard Pink Coat

When investing in a new coat always buy the best quality you can afford as quality tailoring and fabrication endure the test of time and maintain their distinctive edge through many seasons of wear. In terms of trends the main themes this season are oversized cocoon silhouettes, masculine tailoring details, pastel tones, sport luxe styles and ladylike retro looks reminiscent of a Hitchcock Heroine. In terms of fabrics, look out for blends with a high percentage of natural fabrics such as wool, cashmere and alpaca for warmth and the ultimate snuggle factor.
