Yule (Fashion) Rules

BY The Editors | December 11, 2017 | Feature Features

Lena Farouki, owner the new Curio Concept, gives us her fashion picks for attending a holiday soiree—plus what to bring the host or hostess as a token of thanks.

1. A Fab Dress
“Relish is one of my most favorite boutiques to find hidden gems, especially from Uma Wang or Dries Van Noten's AW17 collection,” says Farouki. Rochas cocktail dress, $1,000, Relish, Cady’s Alley

2. Dazzling Shoes
“A metallic sandal—with embroidered beading and rhinestones—will liven up any outfit with some sugar and spice,” says Farouki. Metallic sandal, $1,980, at Gucci, Tysons Galleria

3. Gorgeous Jewels
“Our boutique has recently received stunning pieces from Italian designer, Vivetta, and Georgian jeweler, Sopho Gongliashvili—perfect for parties,” says Farouki. Lanzhou ring, $250, Curio Concept, Georgetown

4. Memorable Scent
Acqua Di Parma’s Gelsomino Nobile eau de parfum is the perfect love making between distinctive and subtle,” says Farouki.
$140, Nordstrom, Tysons Corner Center

5. Something Sweet
“The sweetest hostess gift is a beautifully packaged—and edible—one. The macaroons here are great, but I prefer chocolates,” says Farouki. Incomparables, $30, Laduree, Georgetown
