Get Glamed Up for the Holidays
Update your everyday look for the holidays with stylist, Peter Papapetrou’s tips and tricks. From brooches to socks, he shows you where to find them and how to style them.
Use bold colour
Keep the look modern
The key to novelty socks is to keep the prints sophisticated and cool. Pattern should be simple with limited sparkle so that they don’t scream kitsch or are too childish. Pair festive socks with a pencil skirt, midi skirt, crop pant or rolled jeans to show off the design.
