When I think party season, glitz, glamour sequins and sparkle come to mind. In my book it’s all about dressing up, feeling good but cos I’m lazy I want minimal effort. My fail-safe item every Winter seems to be a fitted jacket. Whether it is blazer or a leather I rely on a great-fitting jacked to complete my look.
So, lets fast-forward to the present day. When I think of emulating a gorgeous look, Mrs Jamie Hince a la Kate Moss is the stand-out icon in my book. The way she rocks timeless pieces and isn’t afraid to re-hash her favourite black blazer every season makes her the reigning catwalk queen. Every year we go on the hunt up and down the high street searching for ‘the’ dress when in actual fact we tend to purchase a failsafe LDB so I think this Christmas I’m going to take a leaf out of Kate’s book and dig my favourite dress from last season out again and team it with a silver sequin jacket to update it and drag my dress into 2012!
Next has such a fantastic range of party-inspired pieces in this Christmas and I can defo see myself wearing both this jacket and clutch this December with my classic dress and skinny jeans. Both are such versatile pieces and I defo think I would get lots of wear out of both.
Let’s not forget accessories- a fantastic clutch and the highest of heels are so easy to team with a classic LBD. This gorgeous glass bead clutch has such an expensive feel about but an easy on the eye price tag. Bonus!
