Holiday Dress Up

You may want to kiss 2020 goodbye and never speak of it again, or tuck it in your pocket as a memento, regardless this time of year should still be reserved for celebration, recognition, and gathering (from afar). If you’re not already feeling the holiday spirit, shed your Covid-19 woes and get in the groove with the prospect of warm family meals and sharing in abundance. Get gussied up or stay cool and cozy this season in our favorite threads. As one of our last Editorial posts of the year we want to celebrate with our Pavilion family and offer up some holiday outfitting ideas. Whether you're riding solo this holiday, zooming with extended family or spending it with your household, let’s dress up and raise a glass in celebration - cheers to you all!

Many look at the holidays as a time to dress up in our finest garb. Jewel tones, sequins, and celebratory accessories have become seasonal staples that come out only for December’s festivities. Even though we can’t celebrate big this year doesn’t mean that we can’t pull out that dress we’ve been dying to wear for months. We want to make sure our Pavilion family is looking good and feeling good, no matter what. Whether you're the type that uses any occasion as an excuse to dress up, or prefers to keep things a little more laid back, Anine Bing’s Penelope Dress in Black Tonal Stripe has the perfect amount of subtle shine to brighten any evening. This timeless iteration of the infamous “little black dress” gets a modern update with a gorgeous tonal stripe fabrication that drapes over the body for a silk-like finish. Featuring a v-neck faux wrap front with ruching and a feminine cut balloon sleeve, this silhouette is intended to flatter all body types while showing the perfect amount of skin. Anine Bing injects her love for menswear with classic shirting details within the shadow stripe fabrication and sleeve cuff finishings. All that and it’s on sale! Don’t forget this dress runs quite large so take a full size down. Vamp your LBD up with a matching black bootie with a dramatic heel for a little bit of “umph” - we went with Anine Bing’s Chloe Boots in Black. This smooth fitted sock style bootie elongates the leg with a slim low calf-height shaft for a streamlined liquid look finished with an edgy pointed toe and block heel. Crafted from buttery soft stretch leather, this stylish bootie molds to your foot with an easy slip on, slip off silhouette. We love the subtle pop of color we get from the hot pink lining which peeks out at the top. If you’re heading out, make sure you travel in style with a classic long black coat, this Harris Wharf Vented Coat is on sale a timeless “forever” piece. Lastly, don’t be afraid to accessorize a little extra! Reach for some shiny gold layers for some holiday opulence and  accentuate your LBD’s dipped V neckline. We have you covered with all of Marit Rae’s new arrivals available at the shop.

Maybe dressing up just isn’t quite what you had in mind - and all things considered this year, we get it! If you plan on keeping things light and casual, we have some amazing pieces that will still feel holiday-appropriate. It’s all about color and warmth this season, and we believe you truly can’t go wrong with Loulou Studios Porri Sweater in Celadon. This gorgeous powder blue coloration will instantly give anyone pastel envy. Loulou Studio can do no wrong when it comes to giving us the finest of cashmeres, and this dramatic sweater does not disappoint. Featuring classic crew details this pullover gets a modern twist with a slightly built up ribbed neckline and gorgeous elongated volume sleeve. The slightly cropped body allows you to pair your blue beauty with any of your favorite mid to high rise bottoms. Of course you can pair this with whites or tonal blues, but it is the holidays, so we couldn’t resist but to add some edgy shine. We love how classically this pairs with DL1961’s Bridget Boot High Rise Crop in Harker. With a flattering 10” rise, DL1961 shows us an opulent update using their Instasculpt technology to smooth and conform to your body for the perfect fit. The Harker has some fun texture with a crinkled, coated black fabrication that mimics the look of leather without sacrificing comfort. We love the mini boot-kick crop silhouette and stylish release hem detailing with fraying for a grunge aesthetic. With an inseam of 26”, this pant is the perfect ankle crop length to show of some fun shoes. Reach for a neutral strappy heel or bootie if you feel the need to dress things up a little. We wanted to show you a causal look, so give a little peek of skin with a tonal black slide and the asymmetrical edge we get from Dolce Vita’s Ekko Flat in Black. Lastly, do as you please with accessories, but the sweater’s built up neckline makes things a little bit difficult for necklaces, so we recommend goin big on the earrings. We couldn’t wait to show off some of the new to-die-for beauties from Roule and Co, so we had to go with the Signature 5-Link Post Earrings in Yellow Gold Disco Squares. This ultra-statement earring is sure to turn heads with their intricate signature drop-link shape. These stunning satin-finished wireformed 18-karat yellow gold earrings feature polished “disco squares” decorating each individual link for that perfect amount of shine.
