With the festive spirit in full swing, most of us will spend at least one weekend this month panicking about what to wear to a party. Yes, it’s freezing cold, but it’s also Christmas, so whilst our heads are screaming thermals and UGGs, our hearts are most definitely telling us to opt for feathers… and sequins… and clashing colour… and fluff. OTT? Yes, and we love it. Fortunately for us, so do Dolce & Gabbana.
How to wear
This isn’t a trend to tackle half-heartedly – after all, it’s charm lies in it’s dramatic sense of escapism – so find the courage to go all out with textures, colours and prints. Take D&G’s lead and stick to vintage-inspired pieces, which will help keep the overall look maximum fabulous and minimum fancy-dress.
