We’ve always had a soft spot for Pyrus. Not only is it a fellow London brand but also because Donna Ida has been stocking it for years and we have seen it grow from strength to strength. So for AW13 we've teamed up with them to create exclusive styles perfect for Christmas. Pyrus are champions at creating beautifully embroidered and embellished pieces. So of course we had to use this to our advantage, especially with the party season looming. Here are my top tips on styling the Pyrus for Donna Ida exclusive tops.
To add a little razzle dazzle to an outfit, as Donna would call it, start with the Liza jacket. This 1920s inspired garment featuring embroidery and beading is delicate and sexy. It is absolutely timeless and a key investment piece. Slip it over an IDA Mrs Thatcher blouse and a pair of IDA Martha flares for a sophisticated evening look.
For a smart day look that will take you through into evening drinks or dinner the Starla blouse is the style for you. It has a beautifully exaggerated neckline which is ultra-flattering on everyone, with an added touch of delicate studding. It also has pretty and intricate beading along the front hem line which helps it fall and drape flatteringly. Team the Starla blouse with a pair of J Brand Maria in Black Sateen and the IDA Loren coat. For day, wear with a patent loafer and then upgrade to a metallic heel for the evening.
For a work lunch the Vendome jacket is perfect. It’s a light weight biker jacket that will easily go under a winter coat so you can layer up to keep warm. Wear it over the spotted Equipment shirt and add texture and depth to the outfit by trying the IDA Ivy Skinny in Noir Velvet with it. For a stand out look go for either the J Brand 801 in Coated Adra Red or the Paige Emily skinny in Needle Point.
If you’re booked up with back-to-back Christmas drinks parties already or you know you’ll get some last minute invites it’s always good to have a new blouse on standby. The Clemence blouse is easy and fuss free with a simple and clean neckline. It’s long and loose in the body so is the perfect partner to a pair of J Brand Leather leggings in Noir or Coal. If you don't want to go hell for leather try the Citizens of Humanity Rocket skinny as they look like leather and are stretchy and comfortable but are a great easy way to wear coated denim option. The Malene Birger Elaisa coat will complete the look; keeping you warm and chic for the season ahead.
