Let your confidence shine just like your outfits this holiday season. Owner of Sisu Boutique Megan Miller says designers are taking a bold, larger-than-life approach this winter with jewel tones, metallics and oversized silhouettes, which is the perfect foundation
for a show-stopping outfit.
“Fashion is personal. It is more than dress up for adults. It is a reflection of who we are and what we believe and gives us a way to express ourselves in a nonverbal way,” she says. “Don’t be afraid to go bold.”
Derived from the Finish language, Sisu, meaning the art of inner strength, is a word that Miller hopes her clients embrace when they wear the brand’s clothes. “Feeling confident in your clothing can help give you the power to take
on challenges and handle them with poise and grace,” she says. (The Minnetonka storefront opened in June 2022.)
Make it Your Own
Miller offers insight on how to style Sisu’s latest selections of holiday attire for your next event.
With the focus being the sparkle of the jumpsuit, you are going to want to style this with a black leather clutch and black pumps. Jewelry should also be kept simple with silver or gold metal or diamonds. If you need a jacket (especially because of Minnesota winters), a black cropped fur or leather coat would be so chic and would add a layer contrasting texture to the look. Price: $68
Satin midi skirt
Colors: Emerald, copper and champagne metallic
If you want to go dressy, a tucked in blouse and pumps would beautifully pull this skirt together. Layer a cropped leather or suede jacket for additional warmth and textural contrast. If you are attending something less formal, pair these midis with a knitted sweater and booties. Add the finishing touch to the look with an oversized clutch and simple, dainty jewelry. Price: $50/emerald and copper; $70/champagne metallic
Metallic chiffon midi dress
The metallic accents and semi-sheer voluminous sleeves are the star of the show. Pair the dress with heels in either a pointy toe pump or a strappy stiletto for an elevated lift. But don’t limit yourself to black, and try for a silver or studded shoe. As for accessories, a longer, simple necklace would highlight the V-neck cut on the dress. Price: $88
Wide leg satin pants
Colors: Cobalt blue, hunter green, wine and black
You will want to fully tuck in or French tuck your top to accentuate the high, cinched waistline of these pants. Then, pair with a chunky heel. These pants would also be a great option for a monochromatic look from head to toe. To do so, search for a similar colored blouse, shoes and even accessories within the same tone range of the pant color to ensure consistency with hues. Price: $40/hunter green and black; $70/cobalt blue and wine
