If a bag is too bold for you, try incorporating oxblood with more petite accessories. Ruby and diamond earrings set in oxidized gold over silver by Jennifer Miller (LEFT; $1,750; 55 Main St., East Hampton, 329-9061) are the ultimate accessory for romantic evenings beneath the mistletoe, while Belstaff’s high-heeled bootie (RIGHT; $995; Shari’s Place, 44 Glen Cove Road, Greenvale, 516-484-7400), with its black trim and darker shade, provides a pop of rouge.

The Creative Ambassador for Barneys New York, Simon Doonan is known for his spirited sense of style. The celebrated author, whose latest read, The Asylum: A Collage of Couture Reminiscences…and Hysteria, available at BookHampton (41 Main St., East Hampton, 324-4939), gravitates toward whimsical button-downs in Technicolor floral prints, which he often pairs with versatile slip-ons such as sneakers and smoking slippers. “If you feel like having a Proust moment, then you could do a lot worse than dig out the smoking slippers,” he quips. For the holidays, Doonan has his eye on Del Toro’s vibrant Dia De Los Muertos slippers in blue velvet. “Del Toro is decadent and luxe. Think Helmut Newton with a dash of Sammy Davis Jr.,” he says. “Plus, nothing says happy holidays like a couple of glamorous skulls.”

This time of year, holiday parties fill our calendars. In preparation for the flurry of activity to come, pop into C. Wonder in Southampton and slip into a pair of velvet dinner slippers embroidered with opulent gold fox heads. Over in East Hampton, pick up the perfect hostess gift—hand-painted ornaments with metallic accents in Roberta Freymann’s signature prints—then dash over to Tiffany & Co. for a dazzling diamond and pearl mistletoe brooch, the perfect festive accent to any holiday attire. Then raise a glass with friends, old and new, and cheers to the New Year!
