Here it is as promised, my last minute guide for all of you who don't know what to wear to Christmas festivities. I used some of my best known webshops that have the stuff I had in mind and used them to make an outfit collage. As I've said, someone very fond of sparkly glitz and sequin comes out of me every November that throws her minimalism out of the window and starts loving everything extra and glam for 2 months. I tried very hard to stay away from sequin and sparkle when putting together the Christmas quide (note: I tried), but the webshops are filled with so many beautiful things I couldn't stay away! I decided to put together different versions so hopefully everyone could find some ideas or inspiration out of the post.
First one from Topshop is the all black outfit that has the focus on the long midi skirt with a slit that is perfect for wintertime and to avoid it becoming too black, I added some sparkly ankle boots that are now in stores basically everywhere you go. I think the best top that goes with this outfit is the wide sleeve one.
The second one I put together from River Island, oe of the top places to go to for party outfits this year! FIrst I saw these leather net boots and just had to style them with something. I thought pointy toe shoes look the best with wide leg sparkly pants and a fun white top. It's a super eye-catching outfit that will probably make you the most stylish guest out of all dinner goers for sure!
The third outfit, also from Topshop, is something for me haha! Super-extra sequin boots styled with minimal sparkle and simple cut black dress with long sleeves. I'm actually wearing the exact same looking dress, but from Dry Lake brand instead. I won't add as sparkly shoes to it, but I think if I would have these boots in my closet, I would definitely style them the exact way. I'm definitely wearing over knee boots to that dress though!
The fourth and the last outfit is the one I actually have on my mind evry year when thinking of CHristmas parties, but I somehow end up going for something else anyway every year. NExt year I'm just gonna go with that picture in my head - red long sleeve velvet dress and over knee boots with a little shine or sparkle. Red velvet dresses are SUPER flattering on everyone and red goes so well with Christmas! It's important to let the dress shine so I would choose simple black over knees to it. Oh now I remember...the best red velvet dresses have actually been sold out every year, that's why I didn't get them! Explains a lot...and no wonder they are sold out!
These are my little suggestions if you happen to have any of these pieces the stores nearby or something similar in your closet already! Hope these small tips were useful and gave some good ideas for the party season! I'll make sure to have a new guide up for New Year's though! x
