The traditional is new again with the runway’s take on stripes, plaids, and lattice textures. These lines are anything but boring, with their varied thickness, direction, shape, and energy. They are an accessible trend that seamlessly blends in with the season’s holiday imagery.
This year features a modern twist on the classical pattern, pairing clean lines with bold designs. Stripes are a long-standing staple both in fashion and in decor. The novelty is in how different designers give it their signature touch. In this season, it is all about direction.
There’s something about Christmas that feels decidedly romantic. Our romantic Christmas Card took its inspiration from the runways this year.
This holiday season you can expect to feel romance in the air as the latest fashion trend continues to channel a noveau Victorian vibe. Fashion-wise, this means light blouses, breezy silk skirts and see through clothing such as sleepwear presented as outdoor wear. “Lace is a common element in ensembles that are considered romantic; it’s a prominent material used in lingerie, and it’s something that’s transcended decades,” says Alicia, who runs a lingerie fashion blog, Bra Doctor. Commenting on how fashion designers took this element to the next level, “Elie Saab opted for pretty panels of lace in a low-cut white dress, perfect for a dramatic cover up in the summer, or with a strategic slip for a night out. Givenchy takes a cue from a chemise with a peekaboo lace bust and a lacy hem, while Oscar de la Renta attached a thin lace neckline to a gorgeous pink gown.” Meanwhile, Roberto Cavalli and Gucci infuse their fabrics with jewels, ruffles and embellished trims with romantic air.
Christmas is always a special time of year, but the holidays you get to spend with your soldier are the most magical of all. As a military family, you know the overwhelming feeling of joy that comes on Christmas morning surrounded by everyone you love most, especially your hero in uniform.
There’s just something special and different about Christmas with your Latino family. Is it the fragrance of freshly cooked tamales steaming in their soft corn husks? Or the happy giggles of little ones gently rearranging Abuela’s nativity scene? Or that groggy but satisfied feeling you have the morning after Noche Buena and midnight mass?
It’s something more essential than any of those things. For you, the ultimate joy is the simple delight of being surrounded by your whole family as you come together once again to glorify the birth of Christ. It’s in those familiar sayings, that easy laughter, and that homey warmth that can only mean one thing: La Navidad is here again.
