Primark Velvet Dress, Topshop Feather Cape, c/o Sister Jane Textured Cardigan, Topshop Argo Boots, H&M Earrings, c/o Boohoo Clutch Bag, Beaded Top c/o Frock On Vintage
You always know Christmas is coming when the velvet and glitz takes over the high street and this year is no exception. Embellishment, feathers and layers of texture take center stage for this years Christmas parties and events. The one time of year it's perfectly acceptable to go totally OTT and look like a human glitterball and look so right! So I say go with it, embrace the festive style and turn heads with your AW looks!
Pajama shapes and draping rather than bodycon looks so much more sophisticated and will mean you won't feel uncomfortable eating one to many mince pies! It's also bang on trend so go for a silky jumpsuit with a feather cape or a silky jacket with matching trousers and an embellished cami looks grown up yet perfect for an event. Show of through your accessories: a statement gold clutch, a big gem necklace or a feather cape. These statement pieces over simple silky product will balance the look perfectly.
For this look I wore midi dress from Primark which are so great for this time of year, great for layering and easy to throw on and feel Christmassy with the key velvet texture. I layered it with this gorgeous textured cardi from Sister Janes new collection, it makes such a statement and looks great over everything. I threw on this amazing beaded top which is from my favourite vintage store Frock On Vintage, i love how the beading hangs over the velvet. Of course being queen of layers this just wasn't enough so I threw on my trusty feather cape. Capes are great to add that extra WOW factor to your Christmas looks and can jazz up even the simplest of outfits! I went for a statement black boot which always toughens up a going out look and a black clutch with simple studding. The dangly gold earrings were just enough sparkle with this statement earring.
How are you getting in the mood for the festive season, what's your key Christmas piece?
