Festive Fashion For The Ladies
The Festive Season in the Highlands can mean varied events and unpredictable weather, it doesn’t take you long to learn that you need to be prepared for every type of occasion and all-seasons in one day around here!
From an intimate soiree, to parties in the park or a balmy New Years Eve party - here’s hoping anyway! At The Fold we have your festive season wardrobe covered. We have pulled together a few of our favourite finds for all shapes, sizes and budgets.
We can't go past the allure of a flowing silk caftan. Wearing this heavenly peace conjures up thoughts of sipping aperols on the Amalfi coastline. That said, just as stunning at a Summer luncheon with glass of bubbles in hand. An easy go-to piece that will have you reaching for it time and time again.
Stunning with statement earrings and wedges, or for a more casual feel go for a pair of Estilo Emporio slides - also in store at Cloth and General.
Cassandra Harper, Green Silk Kaftan, $395.00
Cassandra Harper, Pink Silk Kaftan, $395.00
Seed- Raffia Earring, Navy / Gold, $19.95
Kaftan craze continues. This one is again in silk and falls so softly against the skin, beautiful for women of all ages, shapes and sizes. An incredibly well priced, timeless Summer classic that you'll go back to year after year.
Carolina, Bianca Dress, $188.00
Witchery- Kristy Wedge in a range of colours, $119.95
This piece is just plain fun! We're thinking lunch with the girls or an evening out on the town. Binny is a great and really well priced label gaining a lot of attention amongst socialites (see #binny), and we are lucky enough the clever Penny at Babilonia stocks a great range of their pieces.
Paired here with Chimi of Sweden Sunglasses - an absolute steal at $155.00 and in a range of colours and styles.
Binny Toucan Dress. $285.00
Witchery- Karolina Wedge in a range of colours, $149.95
A wrap skirt offers a flirty fun feminine vibe, so practical for The Highlands. Team it with a crisp white shirt, silk lace cami or linen tee. This look can easily take you from lunch at the pub to drinks with friends.
Spot Wrap Skirt, $119.95
Styled here with a cute comfy and reasonably priced little black off the shoulder top.
Blouson Sleeve Top, Black, $39.95
This little black dress is one of our favourite finds. The cut-out shoulders are very on-trend and has a pretty floaty feminine feel, and is very flattering on many shapes. The length is flattering on the leg, tie around the middle defines the waist and the little hanging straps give a coverage on the arm leaving us feeling not-so exposed.
Gorgeous to wear and an absolute bargain at $49.00. This is a piece we will be adding to our wardrobe!
Cold Shoulder Dress, Black, $49.00
THE ORANGERY Green Stone Drop Earring, $74.90
We couldn’t leave this bargain find out. Another wrap skirt in black and white spot at $20 and another fab find. Team with a silk cami, white shirt or tee for a fresh look, so easy to mix and match. This find will take you from a day at the beach, to the Bowral markets and then out for some drinks - just opt in a wedge for an easy Summer night / party feel.
Wrap Midi Skirt, $20.00
Witchery- Lace Silk Cami $79.95 (on sale now)
We love a print set and this one is one of our faves of the season. Well priced and cost per wear is looking pretty good here. Just team it with a wedge or slide for an effortless and fun party ensemble. This outfit is super easy to change up, just add a white linen shirt with the pants and try a great pair of boyfriend jeans or white denim with the cami - easy as that.
Flutter Print Cami, $99.95
Tie Print Pant, $99.95
We've added something a little more glamorous here for those of us heading to a Summer wedding, cocktail party or a New Years soiree. This dress surprised us, gorgeous and so easy to wear. Navy = very on trend and this piece has the most gorgeous timeless cut. Great for women of all sizes and to add a cherry to the pie Blue Illusion are currently running a promotion - take 30% off! Add to this an ‘investment’ heel and bag - classic elegant look done.
