Mulberry Campden Clutch | Sequin Cami | Glitter Mid Shoes
Christmas party season is officially upon us. And it seems like everyone I know is heading out with work this week. Having already indulged in a festive meal with the Precept lot at The Botanist last week, (where I got away with wearing my Christmas jumper from last year), we're having fairly low key drinks next week. But whether you're heading out with work or just friends, tis the season for sequins. I'm not sure whether it's the dark nights, or the approach of Christmas, but I'm all about a bit of sparkle this time of year. So when it comes to finding the perfect Christmas party outfit, I think there's nothing better than a statement glitzy piece that will stand out. Whether it's a full blown show stopper dress or playsuit covered in sequins, I think it's the right season to experiment. There's something about wintery nights that makes me want to either go bold or go home. But if you're not feeling that brave, there's always the option of an embellished top with a simple leather skirt. Lately, I've found that a lot of my outfits have focused on either top or skirt. If you're not feeling the statement piece though, black sequins can be a bit more subtle. I think a simple little strappy sequin top like the one above looks great with a pair of skinny jeans and heels, but it's plain enough to work with any colour, or even with a patterned skirt. The one above is actually from Asda (of all places!) but it looks they've sold out online at the moment so I've just linked to a similar one. It's worth looking at their site. They've got some pretty cute party dresses in stock right now too which are pretty easy on the purse if you're not looking to spend a lot. Proving that you don't have to bankrupt yourself over the holidays to still look like you've pulled out all the stops. Plus it leaves you with more pennies to spend on your festive makeup (obviously red. Obviously Chanel), and accessories.. Not that I ever need much of an excuse to want to treat myself to more!
