MASTER HOW TO DRESS FOR A GRAND GOOD TIME WITH CELEBRITY STYLISTS, SOPHIE LOPEZ AND WARREN BAKER
Whether it’s rhinestone studded boots, a crystal bag or velvet suit, the holidays are all about adding that extra luxe element. We teamed up with celebrity stylists, Sophie Lopez and Warren Alfie Baker, to learn how they do it in Hollywood. Both created head-to-toe Ted Baker looks, incorporating all you need to put your most festive foot forward.
Both British transplants, Warren and Sophie were introduced by a mutual friend in Los Angeles and instantly connected.
Sophie: "It's always nice to have British friends in the US. It's a kind of comfort, something that feels familiar and reminds you of home. Since Warren is a stylist too, we really understand each other. It's wonderful to have someone for work support and advice! We became fast friends."
Warren: "I had already moved to LA and heard what an amazing stylist Sophie was and that we had to meet. We’ve been great friends ever since."
Sophie and Warren toast to the new season in vibrant ensembles, perfect for any holiday occasion.
THE PARTY IS SERVED
"The holidays are about doing something dapper and fun. I think for men you can play with color and texture while also keeping it classically British."
“It's all about winter whites for holiday! I chose this skirt suit as it felt so chic but still fun and flirty. This is the type of look you can wear to work and then to the office holiday party that evening.”
CHEERS TO PARTYWEAR
"Ted Baker to me has always been known for classic tailoring, with great colors and fabrics. It’s something of a timeless silhouette that will always stand the test of time. Don’t forget about the finer details: ties, bow ties, pocket squares, and watches. They complete the overall look.”
"Metallics for holiday? Always! I've gone for multiple tones of metallic silver in this look. A gunmetal dress, with a crystal purse, and rhinestone boots - don’t be afraid to mix metals. It's not every day I'd put an outfit like this together, but a holiday soirée is the perfect excuse!"
WHY SOPHIE & WARREN LOVE BRITISH STYLE
“I love the sartorial aspect of British style. British menswear to me has always been about impeccable tailoring. I grew up in a family who always dressed up for a gathering or event. It was so sharp and refined."
"British style. It’s timeless, and tasteful. What’s great about Ted Baker is that it encompasses everything about traditional British style and tailoring. However, it adds its own twist. A touch of great British eccentricity thrown in! With unexpected prints, colors and embellishments on traditional pieces. Practical and wearable, whilst still keeping you standing out in the crowd."
