There’s no better time to show off sartorial sensibilities than the last stretch of the year when travels to colder destinations are booked and gatherings fill our calendar. Shangri-La Plaza prepares you for this season as it presents ‘Sparkle: Holiday Collection 2019.’
The recently concluded two-day runway show has introduced trends that will make the traveler and partygoer in you truly a head-turner.
For the jet setter, get away from the tropical heat to experience the crisp, cool air of autumn or the icy glow of winter. Look sharp without compromising comfort by packing loose tailoring—ankle-length coats and comfy slacks—into the luggage. It’s the look that keeps any holidaymaker warm without the unnecessary puff.
Tropical colors are making it into cooler territories this season. The fashionistas are getting inspired by the endless summer in the tropics by picking turtlenecks, midi dresses, and boots in vibrant hues, dreamy pastels, and bold patterns for their holiday travels.
Shades of fall and winter are never going out of style. Blend in with locals and the autumn backdrop by adding pink and orange or rust and merlot to the luggage. Vacationing at the Alps or Niseko? Pack outfits in white, silver, and blue for a look that’s effortlessly magical.
Choose statement sweaters featuring logos or slogans to inject some personality to the fall/winter must-have that streetwear fans can easily pair with the stuff in their closet. Last but not least, travelers are reminded to pack metallic, glitter, and faux fur in their luggage for any last-minute party invites wherever they’re headed.
How about being the life of the party? From reunions to New Year’s Eve, choose outfits that will never make one underdressed.
Take a page from history and get inspired by the 80s nightclub ensemble. Incorporate glitter and exaggerated shoulder pads to an outfit to bring out that 80s glam girl!
It may be a summer staple, but denims are still all the rage this season. But for a party-ready outfit, go head-to-toe denim that gives a nod to Britney Spears’ iconic Video Music Awards dress.
Tuxedo is also having a couture renaissance this year, taking different shapes like exaggerated sleeve detailing and sculpted shoulders rendered in metallic finishes—perfect for ringing in the New Year.
Stay warm while still looking runway-ready by mixing and matching clothes in various textures and prints. It’s a style for Bravehearts, who want to make an impression right away.
Shang also shares trends, specifically for men to add some variety to their wardrobe and refresh their looks for the season. Get on board with the skin suit trend by ditching the roll-neck sweater or the collared shirt and just cover up with the suit jacket pronto. Those who want to look polished can never go wrong with preppy clothes for that boy-next-door vibe. Who says grandma prints are only for women? Men can also borrow grandma’s style and work those prairie chick prints and patterns translated into menswear.
