Want Need Love: December, Part Two

Unwrap our December wish list of indulgent finds to surprise and delight.

POWER PAIRINGS

Attending numerous events over the festive season calls for multiple ways to reinvent staple pieces. Pair your white T-shirt with a pleated midi skirt, or wear a chunky knit over a silk slip dress. Johanna Ortiz took her off-the-shoulder signature shirt to dazzling new heights for AW16 by teaming it with a floor-skimming metallic skirt. Anastasia top, €870; D?Artagnan skirt, €1,043; both at modaoperandi.com.

THE FOREVER PIECE

A statement necklace is not only a great way to anchor an outfit, but it’s also an investment piece that will take you through the festive season into the New Year and beyond. This gold-plated collar by Lulu Frost will stand out draped across bare de?colletage or layered over a high-neck top. Experiment with a polo-neck for day and Victoriana shirt for night.
