There’s no better time to show off sartorial sensibilities than the last stretch of the year when travels to cooler countries are booked and gatherings fill the calendar. Get ready for this season of merriment by stealing the looks at Shangri-La Plaza’s 3. The two-day runway show introduces trends that make every traveler and partygoer a head-turner.
Look sharp without compromising comfort by packing loose tailoring—ankle-length coats and comfy slacks—into the luggage. Or try tropical colors! The fashionistas are getting inspired by the endless summer in the tropics by picking turtlenecks, midi dresses, and boots in vibrant hues, dreamy pastels, and bold patterns for their holiday travels.
Shades of fall and winter are never going out of style. Blend in with locals and the autumn backdrop by adding pink and orange or rust and merlot to the luggage. Vacationing at the Alps or Niseko? Pack outfits in white, silver, and blue for a look that’s effortlessly magical. Or you can choose statement sweaters featuring logos or slogans to inject some personality.
Last but not the least, travelers are reminded to pack metallics, glitter, and faux fur in their luggage for any last-minute party invites wherever they’re headed.
Sparkle’s second day is all about being the life of the party. From reunions to New Year’s Eve, choose outfits that will never make one underdressed. Take a page from history and get inspired by the 80s nightclub ensemble. Incorporate glitter and exaggerated shoulder pads to an outfit to bring out that 80s glam girl!
It may be a summer staple, but denims are still all the rage this season. But for a party-ready outfit, go head-to-toe denim that gives a nod to Britney Spears’s iconic VMAs dress.
Tuxedo is also having a couture renaissance this year, taking different shapes like exaggerated sleeve detailing and sculpted shoulders rendered in metallic finishes—perfect for ringing in the new year.
Stay warm while still looking runway-ready by mixing and matching clothes in various textures and prints. It’s a style for Bravehearts who want to make an impression right away.
Shang also shares trends specifically for men to add some variety to their wardrobe and refresh their looks for the season.
Get on board with the skin suit trend by ditching the roll-neck sweater or the collared shirt and just cover up with the suit jacket pronto. Those who want to look polished can never go wrong with preppy clothes for that boy-next-door vibe.
Who says grandma prints are only for women? Men can also borrow grandma’s style and work those prairie chic prints and patterns translated into menswear.
For those who’d rather stick to the basics, pick a monochromatic outfit in neutrals like beige, off white, or gray that exude quiet confidence. These colors can easily break the monotony of blacks expected at galas and formal events this season.
Feel the Shang vibe and make every ensemble this season a joy to put together and show off.
