Cocktail Attire x La Salette Suisun Valley 2007

At the commencement of a new year, we find ourselves in a position to change something. Wardrobe is a great place to start. If you’re anything like us grape lovers, you resolve to finally get your cocktail attire in check. There are places to go and people to see, so why not put your best foot forward in 2016? Before you make that trip to your closet, we suggest you grab a bottle of La Salette Suisun Valley 2007. This blend of Petite Sirah and Red Zinfandel is a product of the Vezer Family Vineyard in California. The goal here is to find the perfect blend of apparel and accessories to have your outfit be the topic of conversation at your next special event!

Ladies, your manicure and accessories are key when colder weather requires that you are covered from head to toe. Dress up an evening look with a trendy nail polish color, paired with an oversized cocktail ring. Pull the ensemble together with a chic clutch bag. Whether it’s Art Deco-inspired or sleek and simple, the clutch is a low-profile way to store your lipstick, phone and business cards. These killer combos are a quick way to look chic in freezing temperatures and add serious sparkle to your cocktail hour.

Accessories for men are not as common as those for the the ladies, so make your pieces count. Shoes may be the first thing women notice, but accessories exude your charisma. Watches and cufflinks are the main focal point when holding your wine glass, so be sure to pick styles that can add a bit of pizazz to your outfit.  Whether you are into making a statement or more minimalist pieces, choose the pieces that match your personality and use restraint where necessary. The secret to making your wardrobe personable is mixing both simple and whimsical pieces. La Salette is a blend of red and dark berries with a hint of spice, full of personality and great inspiration to start off the new year in style!
