With Christmas parddy season in full swing I thought I would share with you a few of my favourite outfits to work whether you’re on a night out with the girls or headed to the office Christmas party. I have particularly been loving the velvet, lurex and metallic trends so apologies in advance you will be seeing a lot of that. AW is always the best time for styling so it’s just as well that it’s time to get your party on too.
Musing over metallics…
I wore the bronze metallic dress above to a wedding I attended in October and ever since I have enjoyed layering the bargain-ous Primark piece over different tee’s, shirt and crop tops. I am currently loving the metallic colour clash by teaming the slinky dress with a gunmetal grey, lurex shirt (also from Primark). I guess I am 100% maximalism as opposed to minimalism, but what’s new there?
My metallic love doesn’t stop at clothes either, I am also loving metallic shoes whether that’s those iconic pairs of silver disco boots from Topshop or a pair of chunky wedge heels from H+M. Of-course for a more paired down addition to the magpie outfit, my ‘Melissa heels’ by Vivienne Westwood.
“You know, jeans and a nice top…”
The famous last words of anybody going on a night out in the middle of Winter. This is actually the outfit I work to my own office Christmas party and I liked the way I could transition it from a morning in the office to an evening of cocktails. My sparkly jeans are a pair of sequin ‘Joni’ jeans from Topshop that i’ve had for years and the cami with frill sleeves and rose applique is from Primark. It is super flattering and look especially festive when pair with ‘Russian Red’ lippy from MAC. I wore the look with those chunky gold heels pictures above and I must admit i felt very 80s and super sassin’.
It’s all in the details…
Whenever I dress up for a party, I like to exaggerate my everyday style by adding in extra details. Whether that is layering my TDS bomber jacket over a cocktail dress, clashing prints and miss-matching prints. I also like to go all out with a vibrant clutch bag, you can see a few of my favourites above, it all depends on the party.
What are you wearing for party season?
