What to Wear for the Holidays with Jimmy Choo

So your calendar is stacked with a season’s worth of day and night events and you’re calculating the chicest way to make it all work? Check this out: the two themes behind Jimmy Choo creative director Sandra Chois current collection of strappy heels and sumptuous bags were sunlight and moonlight. So with Jimmy Choo, 24/7 style is built in.

We asked the Jimmy Choo team to help us build two transitional looks—shoe- and handbag-centric outfits that’ll take you from girls’ brunch to girls’ cocktail night, or from the office to the office party—with some of their resort-season standouts.

#1. Hangout to High Style

Start the day in the “bohemian glamour” of a style named Dana—the Jimmy Choo team says boots are at the heart of the collection—and channel what they call a “sophisticated nomadic aesthetic.”

Add a structured blazer, a basic blouse and black skinnies, and head out into the world. Later, when it comes time to turn it up a notch or two, keep the outfit pieces the same, slip the boot off, and step into Lorelai, a floral-embellished strap pump that pretty much says “Let’s celebrate.”

Tying it all together, says the team, is Lockett—a chain-strap flap bag meant to be worn as a crossbody or on the shoulder.

#2. Dressed Down, Dressed Up

This look is all about getting the most out of your favorite little black dress. Start with the LBD in question and add a denim jacket for day, along with Viola, a suede tassel heel that the team says really “captures the spirit of the collection.”

Grab the Cameleon nylon tote, and you’re off—until night falls that is.

For this changeover, the Jimmy Choo team advises you trade the denim jacket in for a shawl or wrap, and put the tote aside in favor of Trinket—a tube-shaped clutch with satin lining and a lamé glitter finish. It’s said to be a Sandra Choi favorite, owing to that “multifaceted shine and mix of textures and colors.”
