In case you hadn’t noticed, this season is all about the glitz and glamour. Despite the fact that my wardrobe is starting to resemble a little bit like a xmas tree, there’s no resisting the spangly array of sparkly jumpers, sequin dresses and shiny leather skirts so readily available on the high street right now.
In an attempt to remain chic without looking too TOWIE, mixing textures such as chunky knits and leather with on-trend sequin pieces is key.
Party season 2011 / 12 is split into a few top themes – victorian fetish wear; 70s evening and boy-dressing.
This lurex jumper dress from Topshop is perfect for wearing on xmas day with a pair of chunky ankle boots to stay festive without being too try-hard.
Metallic leather is another huge trend this season and this silver pu skirt from Topshop will look amazing when worn with a simple white tee and sparkly tights.
These items have been at the top of my wish list for quite some time and I’m happy to say I’ve snapped up a few of them already!
I’ll be chanelling my inner rock star with these chunky wedges from Miss Selfridge.
These will be worn everywhere during the xmas period and paired with leather leggings and baggy shirt these are the epitome of cool.
Tuning in to this season’s 70s aesthetic, fur, lurex and metallics are at the top of my wish list.
This super snug jumper from Topshop is perfect when worn with leather trousers or jeans for a casual effect.
To listen to my favourite christmas songs, I’d love these fur headphones to keep me snug outside – perhaps a little strange when worn in the gym though.
And for makeup, I’m searching for mini-compacts containing all my essentials.
This lipgloss ring from Biba is the perfect accessory and coupled with this luxe xmas set from Bobbi Brown containing shimmery eyeshadows, blush and an array of lip colours, this is all I’ll need to glam up for work nights out.
