Velvet Trousers

You all know by now my love with velvet in general and with velvet dresses in special, but today I thought why not velvet trousers. I find them to be a very chic choice for the festive season, being up there in the top close to sequins.

If you’re not sure how to style them, just pair your velvet pieces with contrasting textures – think cashmere, silk or jersey tops – to create a polished look. You can’t go wrong with a pair of velvet pants paired with heels and a white tank for a modern party-season outfit, or if you want to opt for a relaxed style, wear the velvet trousers with a turtleneck top – trendy and office appropriate.

Favorite Christmas Jumpers

Love a funky Christmas jumper as much as you do – we all remember Ron from Harry Potter and his eternal jumper gifts for Christmas – so, I am staying clear of that and focusing on stylish jumpers that you could wear more than for Christmas.

High on every fashionista’s Christmas list is the Bella Freud x Kate Moss design for Save The Children – you can buy knowing you’re giving as well as receiving.

I have my mind set on trying a sequined sweater this party season, I believe still wearable post-NYE.

How To: Jumpsuits

Jumpsuits are everywhere right now, and they can be totally feminine and sophisticated with the right styling. The jumpsuits are an effortless alternative to the classic cocktail dress, being super versatile, coming in everything from long sleeves, to spaghetti straps, to chic tuxedo-ish finishes or adorned with sequins – thus making them appropriate for festive outings. Why not try this style for the New Year’s Eve Party?

Party Blazers

Make an entrance during the festive period with a fashionable blazer. Take cues from the street style outfits and wear yours to dress up a (possible) plain ensemble of jeans and a tee. Add heels or the sneakers to an ensemble like this and you’re good to go.

Current Obsession: Plaid Shirts

Plaid shirts come this season in a wide range of styles: from buffalo checks to plaids embellished with sequins and gems, there’s an option for everyone. Pair your favorite one with boyfriend jeans for a casual (coffee) date or opt for a silky plaid with a pencil skirt for a stylish office ensemble.

It is so easy to create a cool ensemble with a plaid shirt. So, become yourself a little obsessed with this style.

Some of the plaid shirts I like a lot at the moment are these from Uniqlo. They are just great!
