Inspired by the designer’s childhood in Valley Forge and by Truman Capote’s 1966 Black And White Ball at the Plaza, Tory Burch’s Holiday ’08 collection is sparkly but sophisticated. In a classic black, white and grey with pops of fuchsia, these are the sorts of classy pieces that fit right in at holiday parties.
Play on the retro appeal of the Grania Dress by adding round-toe pumps, or make this embellished silk sheath look edgier with a pair of booties, like by Brylyn Bootie, a perfect peep-toe alternative to pumps for evening.
If it’s a glam day-to-evening bag you’re after, the Green Patent Anna Satchel is a bold option in a shape that’s new to the line. Wear it with a Rihannon Cardigan for a classic laid-back, pulled-together look – something like the ladies who partied at the Plaza back in the ’60s.
