Throughout December, we’ll be shining a light on your festive style. Here’s how Vogue Club member Susana Solari is spending the season—and what she’s gifting her closest friends…
1. What is your favorite festive ritual?*
One that I do every festive season—no matter where I may be visiting—is light candles. There’s something about the scent that brings a feeling of warmth, and it also adds a thoughtful touch to really any space or activity.
2. What’s the perfect gift to surprise your closest friend?*
This season I picked a Noelle Turtleneck Cashmere Sweater and the Cashmere Travel Set from Naked Cashmere. Also, The Eve Smocked Coupe Cocktail Glasses from CB2 are a must-have to celebrate the end of the year in style!
3. What’s the best gift you have received in recent years?*
Last Christmas, my husband surprised me with a Spherical Minaudière Evening Bag from Badgley Mishka. It was the perfect—and final—touch to an outfit I had planned for holiday festivities in Miami!
4. It’s not the festive season without a glamorous party: What item of clothing (or accessory) is sure to make you stand out from the crowd?
An unexpected accessory, like red gloves, are sure to make you stand out! Also, a luscious fabric like velvet (and lots of it) in a one-shoulder jumpsuit with color.
5. Lastly, what’s the one beauty item that speaks to your holiday season allure?*
I have a couple of beauty items I use every holiday: Always, always my Coco Chanel body lotion with fragrance—without it, I just don’t feel like myself! Also, red Chanel lipstick—because a girl needs a Rouge Allure Velvet lip for the holiday. And the Bio-Radiant Gel-Powder Highlighter from Haus Labs is one of my recent favorites—it adds a pop to the eyes and really brings out the entire look!
