Friday in our column “Style Selec’tings” Kingstonstyle’s Fashion Editor, E. Hansen-McKnight, scours the web to give you the week’s best in clothing and accessories from web-savvy Jamaican stores and designers.
Goodbye Fall season and hello Winter! Not that the weather changes much in the Caribbean during Winter. On occasion, we get a breeze chilly enough to sport a leather jacket or sweatshirt, but for the most part we can stick to showing some skin. So let’s celebrate the latest in fun, flirty and feminine stock for the Christmas holiday from our local retailers and designers.
We love the bodycon dresses now in stock at Grandeur Femme and Style Savvy. This red above-the-knee number from Grandeur Femme has beautiful abstract layering, while the trendy midi styles at Style Savvy in black and white has us pondering soon-to-come Christmas party accessorizing. If you are looking for something with a little more of an elaborate print, Grandeur Femme also has you covered with mosaic and tribal prints. Bodycon isn’t for everyone so if you prefer a little flare in your skirt, The Wardrobe has some playful skater dresses in stock and Flirt Boutique has a sophisticated red wrap dress. Local designer TifMel makes her own dresses for local fashionistas and we love the simple sexiness of these two black dresses. Pair your monotone look with an eyecatching accessory like these new multi-functional bags from ASD Clothing or a GlamHEAD headpiece (which are rumored to be new in stock soon).
