These Runway Looks Will Put Some Extra Cheer in Your Season
’Tis the season for holiday drinks and dressing, so why not do both at once by donning a look in hot chocolate and champagne colours?
Whether you prefer to curl up with a hot cuppa or have a blast with some bubbly, use your favourite holiday drink to express your Christmas cheer by dressing up in mulled wine-red or eggnog-cream.

We look back at autumn/winter 2021 collections and the outfits that get us in the mood for a champagne cocktail this winter.
Mint Hot Chocolate
A splash of mint in a hot chocolate makes it feel eons more Christmassy. This brown coat from Marc Jacobs captures that cosy feeling of rich hot chocolate with a marshmallow or two, and the pop of aqua with the balaclava and turtleneck gives the look that fresh hint of mint.
Coffee and gingerbread are a classic and delicious drink combination. To look just as toasty, turn to the Burberry collection for a plethora of brown and beige. This outfit, in particular, features a brown-blended coat akin to the texture of coffee, milk and warm spices.
A hot toddy is a wonderful way to stay warm at a Christmas market, but if you don’t have the opportunity to go one wear all the colours of this beverage instead. Jil Sander nailed the colour palette with this pale whiskey leather coat and cinnamon brown boots.
Hot apple cider might not be the first holiday drink that comes to mind, but don’t let that stop you from adding it to your rotation of warming beverages. Stewing together apples, oranges, brown sugar and spices creates a rich orange shade—just like this sheer dress and bodysuit look from Knwls.
Rich and creamy, eggnog is the ideal dessert drink post-holiday meal and pre-snooze on the sofa. Take inspiration from its smooth texture with this luscious white leather look by Angel Chen—the volume on the coat looks how eggnog feels to drink.
Christmas calls for mulled wine all the time, and the outfit that comes to our mind is this couture dress from Valentino. The rich merlot tone and bubble hem on the top is akin to the wine glass we’ll be nursing, and this bright feathery hat feels like the fruity notes from the brew.
The ultimate drink of the season, dazzle in gold tones like this stunning couture gown from Schiaparelli. The black portion of the dress gives us champagne flute vibes, and the height and width of the gold ruffles emulates the fizz rising in the glass.
