Holiday Trend Guide November 29 2017

The holiday season is upon us, which means it's time to find the perfect looks for all of your upcoming events! Our manager Jasmine has put together some of our favourite holiday trends accompanied by inspirational photos as well as images of the pretty pieces we have in-store!

#1 VELVET

From shoes and tops, to dresses and blazers - velvet is everywhere this holiday season! We love paring a black velvet dress with ankle booties for an edgier look, but if you are hesitant to wear velvet all over you can add a velvet shoe or handbag for a pop of interest to your holiday ensemble! We are swooning over these blush velvet pumps!

Shop our velvet pants and For Love and Lemons Velvet Dress in-store or online!

#2 SEQUINS

No holiday season is complete without sequins! This season try something different and go for a knee-length sequin skirt and pair it with a ruffle, or bell sleeved sweater and drop earrings; it’s a great look for a holiday work party or dinner. If you aren’t a skirt gal, slip on a long sleeve sequin dress with a low back for a subtle yet sexy look, we love this dress by Wyldr!

Shop our sequin favourites in-store, or online!

#3 BURGUNDY

Shades of red are always popular over the holiday season, however we prefer a rich merlot or burgundy color this season - especially when done in a lace fabric. A fitted lace dress, or skirt with a nude underlay is just the right amount of sexy! We love how Candice Swaenpol matched her lipstick and heels to her dress for a monochromatic look!

#4 LACE AND METALLIC

Metallic hues are no longer just meant for your accessories! This season we are seeing them on jackets, skirts, pants and tops! We love a metallic gold or silver pleated midi skirt with a sheer lace top or a lace dress with pops of metallic, like this For Love and Lemons lace ruffle dress. Both looks work well with tights and booties or a simple pump!

Shop our For Love and Lemons Lace dresses with metallic detailing here (long sleeve) and here (sleeveless) as well as the Jaylyn crop (new champagne colour coming soon!) and this pretty peplum metallic lace top here. Click here for more pretty metallics available online and visit us in-store for even more selection!

#5 TULLE

We think every woman needs a little bit of tulle in her wardrobe and holiday events are the perfect excuse to wear it! We like the look of a long-sleeved crop top with a midi tulle skirt. The skirt is high waisted so it meets perfectly with the crop top, and shows little-to-no skin. If crop tops aren’t your thing we recommend wearing a bodysuit with lace detailing. Complete the look with a red lip and pumps and your holiday party ready!

Boho Bridal Shoot with Kristyn Harder Photography September 05 2016

By Kayla Pearcey

It's no secret that here at Adorn, we're completely and utterly obsessed with all things feminine and romantic. So, our recent shoot with local photographer Kristyn Harder Photography speaks to exactly that aesthetic. 

We got together with Evan Brown from Whiskey Weekend along with her gals from Three Way Clothing one evening to bring a boho bridal party to life. All while dodging summer thunderstorms!

The lovely models were pampered from head to toe (literally) by the talented girls at the Vanity Vault Calgary with hair, makeup, nails AND tans all done. The whole shebang! The gorgeous florals in this shoot were provided by Amborella Floral Studio.

For the outfits, we had the bride (Evan) wear two different For Love and Lemons dresses. Her first option was a midi length white lace dress with a nude bodysuit underneath and low-cut front. This style really gave us the bohemian feel we were looking for in this shoot.  

Evan's second look included a sweet feminine off-the-shoulder mini lace dress paired with a loose braid.

For the bridesmaids' outfits, we styled the girls in pretty delicate blush pieces also from For Love and Lemons. The first bridesmaid wore an open lace v-neck blush romper with sweet ruffled sleeves and waistline details. 

The second bridesmaid wore a stunning blush dress with peep hole and intimate lace details. 

Together these pretty blush and lace outfits equal boho bridal perfection! Don't you agree?! Enjoy some more shots from this romantic shoot below.
