Festive Season Trends with Zalando

Article by Alexandra Fiddes | 04 Dec 2013

Have you been searching for the complete one-stop-shopping destination? Well, we've found it – the Zalando online boutique! Started in Germany in 2008, Zalando has been here in the UK since 2011 and prides itself on its great customer service and secure shopping experience. With a virtual wardrobe bursting at the seams with over 1400 big brands and designer labels, Zalando has the perfect piece for everyone; whether you're an inquisitive style novice or a full-time fashionista. Expect a perfectly curated mix of household names like Dr. Martens and Uggs, high-end designers such as Vivienne Westwood and fashion-forward labels like Jeffrey Campbell.

With the festive season now upon us and as 2013 draws to a close, we're looking for outfits that will kick any Christmas or New Year's party off with style.

Why not step into the spotlight with a stunning and versatile dress? Zalando’s huge range of (over 2,000!) cocktail styles and shades certainly ensures that you'll find just what you're looking for. Modern designs are for the fashion-forward among us - think asymmetric hemlines and cut-out details, while vintage style dresses in velvet and silk add a glamorous retro touch. Classic designs are versatile and look effortlessly elegant, especially when paired with daring heels or simply delicate ballerinas.

Go high-shine with metallic designs in a silver and bronze colour palette, with brands like Plein Sud, Milly or Laona doing the trend to perfection. Or, if something a bit more ladylike is your style, why not try a dress that will have you sitting pretty-in-pink (the must-wear colour of AW13) with designs by Ted Baker, ESPRIT and Villa in rose, blush or neon.

You can also instantly update your party look with embellished accessories that will add the wow factor to that favourite LBD. Try a bejewelled clutch from Menbur, glittering gold David Aubrey statement earrings and a pair of sky-high studded sandals by McQ Alexander McQueen.

If your perfect Hogmanay celebrations are drinks at the local pub with family or sitting under the stars setting off fireworks with friends, then ankle boots and cosy knits from Zalando are the perfect way to brave the evening chill but remain effortlessly on-trend. The right fashionable footwear won’t only help you ring in the New Year, but will also take you to New Year’s Day lunches. Think brown-brogue high-heel ankle boots with skinny jeans. Sorted.
