Gift Guide

These picks are packed with flair and creative combinations for the daring dresser who seeks some of Shelby Hyde's instinctive visionary voice.

What seasonal styles have you captivated and wishing they were yours?

When it comes to holiday dressing, I find myself gravitating towards festive styles with opulent or plush fabrics and understated embellishments to counterbalance my minimal but chic aesthetic the rest of the year. Paco Rabanne’s shimmery ruched midi dress is the perfect piece for getting through the party season with ease. (The fact that it works just as well during the spring and summer months is an added plus.)

Which pieces do you reach for year after year for elegant events in the winter?

In my opinion, the most important part of putting together a look for an elegant event during the winter months is finding the right piece of outerwear to top it all off. There’s nothing worse than being forced to put a bulky puffer or parka over your otherwise chic ensemble. As a result, each season I find myself grabbing for a leather trench or long statement coat to bring the whole outfit together, without sacrificing warmth and comfort.

If you could gift a friend a fellow Muse wardrobe which would it be, why? 

My best friend is undoubtedly the opposite of me aesthetically, which means she prefers bold proportions, colorful prints, and ladylike silhouettes. In turn, I see her getting the most out of the pieces found in the expressive wardrobes of Rebecca Stock-Dirubio or Janie Pierrepont. 

What’s the perfect accessory for an elaborate event this season? 

You can’t ever go wrong with a sparkly statement bag. It adds a playful punch to even the most classic ensembles and makes for a great conversation piece in the process. A prime example, Rosantica’s teeny tiny Baby Garogano bag doubles as a necklace which takes it from wildly impractical to a whimsical accessory for your next holiday get together.
