It’s the season for parties, dinners and dancing galore — all in the name of the holiday season. Hugging the edge of formal and fun, dressing for the season has its fair share of style challenges. Swarovski joins Margaret Zhang to get the creative director’s inside tricks and tips and holiday plans.
“You don’t necessarily have to dress in the colors of the occasion (i.e. red and green),” says Margaret of the color scheme. “Staying true to your personal style with a few extra embellishments is completely fine.” How does Margaret stay warm during the cooler months, without sacrificing her svelte silhouette? “Wear good heat tech thermals so you don’t have to wear so many bulky layers.”
Margaret pairs the Crystaldust bangle worn as a choker for a surprise holiday turn-about, choosing an all-black ensemble to highlight the sparkling pieces from Swarovski’s Fall/Winter collection.
“I have a terrible habit of forgetting about the holidays until almost the night before,” shares Margaret. For last minute tips, Margaret recommends “Add a dark lipstick and some earrings” for instant glamour, such as our Slake Dot Pierced Earrings Jacket.
As the holidays call for tradition, Margaret shares her favorite one; “I always have Chinese food for Christmas Eve dinner, no matter where I am in the world.” No matter the occasion, be daring, follow your instincts and to be truly irresistible – enjoy the sweetness of the season.
