Outfits You'll Want to Work Hard to Buy

Oh it's the most wonderful weekend of all. Black Friday has come to be as important to the holidays as stockings on your chimney. And we couldn't be more thankful. Especially with the caliber of clothing offered luxe Italian retailer Luisa Via Roma

From the above Aciel White Cotton Poplin Shirt to the Aquazzura Napa Leather Flats, there is plenty to pine after. (BTW: Hammock also for sale.) 

And if you’re lusting after a certain luxury piece, but can’t yet afford it, these items will convince you to put your nose to the grindstone and work until you own it. 

A long pale pink dress is useful year round. During the winter months pair it with boots and a turtleneck to stay warm. A gray Emporio Armani turtle will do the trick. In the spring wear the Attico Satin Slip Dress solo and take advantage of the thigh-high slits. The Skogsberg&Smart vase vase pulls double duty as well. Use it as a candle holder or fill it with white lilies to match the winter landscape. 

Looking to make a statement at your friend's holiday fete? Shourouk Ramses Black earringsare white and gold, the colors of the season. They're also dazzling danglers. Don't want to show up empty handed? The House of Hackney Pineapple candleholder is better than a bottle of wine (and lasts longer too). For a button-down that works with both a red leather skirt for nights on the town and back in the office on Monday, VETEMENTS padded shoulders cotton poplin shirt is a winner. 

A cropped cashmere turtleneck? It's just the right amount of naughty and nice. And you should put something like it in on your xmas list. It's great for wearing around the office with a pair of high waist pants. Even better for flaunting a tiny smidgen of your mid-drift, even when the snow drift is piling high. If you like rocking high-necked styles, also check out this dot mesh and lace crepe top from British label Self Portrait.  And if you want to get a little crazy with your bottoms, these Vionnet Musical Printed pants are the way to go. 

A Bitossi Ceramiche Hen Ceramic figure might not work as a purse, but it's certainly of the season and looks cute tucked up under your arm (or in your hallway entry). And with Marni Cropped Light Twisted Flannel Pants and Aquazzura Christy Lace Up Pumps, people are going to be more focussed on the bottom half of your outfit anyway.
