Gala season is officially here and it’s the perfect time to share some of the latest trends and tips to get you ready.

There is nothing better to complete an outfit than perfect hair. If you’re like me, it’s quite a treat to book a stylist to hand create an inspiring hair design. Glance around the gala floor this season and you will spot braids being incorporated into hair design for a fresh, updated look. Lucky for Naples, we have a myriad of choices when it comes to stylists.

If you’re really in the mood to be spoiled, have your stylist come to your home. Ada Tabaku is my local favorite and I’ve also heard great reviews about the new blow out bar in town. Styles start at $65.

My mother always told me you can always dress up a basic dress with killer accessories and I’ve spent a lifetime making sure I listened to my mother. I spotted a versatile Valentino clutch that was stunning. Best of all this ingenious design features a stud accented leather design on a detachable
studded bangle chain wrist strap. Available in blush, rose and black.

For a more formal affair, long gowns are the norm and one of my favorite lines is from Theia. Gala goers can enjoy exceptional choices with their winter/spring collection featuring glass beading and signature delicate satin petal detailing.

As a self confessed mega shoe fan, my fellow high-heeled fans will see that Jimmy Choo is reaching new levels with his stunning 4.5”, sans platform, pointy-toe pump. The Anouk line is sexy, stylish and classic and more comfortable than I could have ever hoped for. Wearable with just about anything from blue jeans to gowns – this pair
of shoes is sure to change your look, your stride, your confidence and your height.

Last but never least, no outfit is complete without jewelry. I spotted a collection of Nanis jewels that were breathtaking. The meticulous attention to detail and combination of stones, gold and diamonds are divine!

Whether you elect to have your hair up, hair down, basic black or long gown; season is the perfect excuse to dress up, enjoy a night out on the town, and raise money for some
amazing causes. Cheers to that!
