Holiday Inspiration Board


It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Over here at Draper James
Take a look at our new collection; it’s filled with such confections
With candy canes and ribbons for our dames. . .

We interpreted the holiday season literally—and beautifully—with festive motifs that draw from iconic symbols of the season. Pictured above, our inspiration board shows how glamour and tradition meet for a celebration of holiday style that has us bursting into song.

We’re Dreaming of a White Christmas
A flurry of snow-inspired treatments adorns our pieces in ways that are both cheeky and chic. Our tops, sweaters, and dresses glisten with a variety of detailed snowflake embellishments; our ‘snow-lace’ recalls the intricacies of snowflakes on dresses, and sweaters; and we’ve got a flurry of items in alluring winter white. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

Do the “Jingle Bell Rock” and get “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” in bushels of holiday dresses. Whether you’re the host or the guest, you’ll be dancin’ merrily at the Christmas party hop in bell sleeves, fit-and-flare silhouettes, high-low hems, houndstooth, mixed lace, Christmas prints (think: candy canes, wreaths, and amaryllis) and more pretty styles and silhouettes. The fun goes on throughout the season, with many dresses fit for ringing in the New Year.

Deck the Halls (and the Table). . .
With our extensive holiday home collection. Our amaryllis and wreath prints show up on coasters, placemats, wine totes, aprons, and more. We’ve also got trinket trays, appetizer plate sets, cocktail napkins, and wine glasses fit for decking out your own home or gifting to loved ones and party hosts alike. Now bring us some figgy pudding (or chestnuts roasting on an open fire! or some turkey and some mistletoe!) and a cup of good cheer!

Baby it’s Cold Outside. . .
But we’re nice and warm thanks to outerwear and sweaters fit for walking in a winter wonderland. We have a faux fur-trimmed coat to layer over party dresses, a plaid cape to pair with jeans for afternoons spent Christmas shopping, a cozy cable cardigan for cheering Rudolph on from the window, and a classic fair isle to get you in the spirit for ski season.

Do You See What We See?
As in, statement sweatshirts and tees that thwart even the most “Silent Night.” From “Fa La La Y’all” to “Happy Y’allidays” to “Oh My Stars” and “Peace, Y’all,” our sayings are as Southern as poinsettias and pecan pie.
