New year, new look! When it comes to the long running question of 'diamonds or pearls,' we can never decide. For our latest Outfit of The Week, pearls are indeed our jam.

While we are well aware that high end pieces aren't exactly affordable, they certainly are fun to dream about.

When it comes to fashion fantasies Gucci always leads the pack. Alessandro Michele has redefined the brand's aesthetic with his romantic, ethereal and instantly recognizable approach to fashion. Delicately produced from off-white and black, this short sleeved embellished dress is a timeless staple. For the chilly January weather, outerweae that is super chic is naturally a must. This black wool blend embellished pearl coat from Edward Achour Paris is such a stunner you'll look forward to cooler weather just for the chance to wear it out. One of the best parts of winter is the chance to bring out a fierce pair of boots. This luxury pair by Alexander McQueen can be styled slouchy around the ankle or worn extended to the knee, and features a curved horn heel with hand-painted finish. An item we always support investing in is a versatile bag. Chanel's classic caviar tote is not a lovely match for this ensemble, but would make a great addition to any fashion lover's closet. Choosing jewelry for this look was easy, it's again all about pearls. These studs from Henri Bendel are petite enough to not be too flashy, yet still lend the perfect amount of accessorizing. No outfit would be complete without a little makeup. The Dior Couture Coulour Wardrobe is directly inspired by runway shows that teams fresh and natural colors with vibrant and sophisticated shades. This look is perfect for kicking off a new, stylish year and an excellent way to play up one of your favorite embellishments.
