December is all about gatherings with friends and family celebrations over the holiday season and this means dressing up for all these occasions. If you do not want to be seen sporting the same look twice then you have your pick of strong, statement pieces this season at H&M.
It is not about cozy contentment, this season the holiday collection gives you a confident, powerful woman at play with winter fashion. Embrace the pairing of a sheer tulle skirt with winter boots and a slouchy, bell sleeved turtleneck. Celebrate the mix and match elements of patent leather and a deeply plush playful pelage. From glamorous new goth to punky après-ski princess, H&M’s Holiday 2017 womenswear focuses on texture. High-shine, faux fur, glitter, mesh, lurex, glittering rhinestones, fluffy knits and jacquards, whichever finish you favor, there is a look for you.
“While we’re playing with two distinct personas for the holiday collections, they both share an uber femme attitude – figure-flattering silhouettes, a confidence to mix and match statement fabrics and a stylish strut. It’s power dressing for the party!” says Pernilla Wohlfahrt, H&M’s Head of Design and Creative Director.
The punky après-ski princess is not afraid to wear head-to-toe red incorporating different textiles and finishes in the final look. Perhaps a puff ball skirt teamed with a top featuring ruched sleeves worn with red high shine booties. Add some soft white, silver and black if head to toe scarlet is too scary for you! Adding to the hint of the early 1980s reference, in the punk theme you can find gorgeous high-waisted, Royal Stewart homage plaid trousers and stirruped ski-inspired stretchy pants.
Other key items in the Holiday collection include a balloon-sleeve sweater that comes in your choice of 3 colors, a sheer maxi-length tulle skirt, a sparkly knit jumper and a full skirted gypsy dress with gold bead embellishments in the shape of stars for extra sparkle. Throw a fuzzy faux fur coat literally over anything this season or go bold with an ultra-shiny hooded puffer jacket in bright red; it’s sporty and sexy at the same time, and thoroughly feminine.
