I love all the parties at this time of year – everyone’s tired but cheerful and the festive spirit is high. Suddenly mulled wine, eggnog and spiced cocktails appear in our hand and we’re dreaming of sweet desserts – depending on where you are from this could be anything from pumpkin pie to mince pies. It’s a time to celebrate and to be thankful for the year that has passed and the hope for a new year. I also like this time of year because it’s the time I like to break out all of my festive party wear – glitter, sparkles, mermaid heels – you name it. If it shines then I wear it. The key to getting away with this kind of clothing is to pair it with classics – whether that’s a trench coat or classic leather jacket.
There is nothing as classic as a leather jacket. This, like the trench coat, will simply never ever go out of style and it’s worth investing in a good one. Mine that I am wearing below is from Superdry – it’s the Luxe Leather Biker Jacket. I absolutely love this jacket and it ticks all the ‘never going out of style’ boxes. I actually didn’t know that Superdry stocked leather jackets for women until recently when I discovered this one that I just love. It has three front pockets, zip cuffs and a belted waist – all details that I love on a leather jacket.
I’ve also used this leather jacket to add a bit of an edge to a festive look. Heels and a sparkly dress can sometimes need a bit of an edge and a black leather jacket goes with pretty much anything – that’s why it’s such a well-loved item that has been in style for so long!
I’ve paired the jacket with a gorgeous sparkly dress, again from Superdry. I’ve always thought of Superdry as more of a sporty destination but they are really killing it this season with their mix of party wear and seasonal pieces to see you through the winter. This sparkly dress is really gorgeous and well-made. When you touch it you can feel the quality of the dress and that it’s not going to fall apart at the seams! This is the Sequin Luxe Body Con Dress from Superdry – it’s a silver sequinned dress with navy undertones – classic but glitzy at the same time.
Wearing this will certainly make hailing a cab easier so they can spot you! The dress twinkles in the light and it’s really gorgeous – it fits nicely without being too tight and allows for breathing room. It would be perfect for any party occasion this season.
You can keep the accessories minimal with this dress as well because it does all the talking for you!
What will you be wearing this festive season? Sequins or sparkles?
