We are officially nearing party-wear season, and I have a few blog posts planned for you all with some inspiration. We are starting with one filled of pieces that are right up my street; simple and classic. I know you will have heard this form me so many times, but when it comes to dressing for occasions I always want to find pieces I will be able to rewear beyond the event, not just one off pieces. And these two looks are really nailing that criteria.
First lets discuss the all black outift. The knit you have seen before in this post, and I don’t think you’ll need me to go into detail about all the different ways you could wear this piece. With all your favourite causal looks, or for smarter ones like this. I styled it with a mini skirt, I love the combination of a high neck knit with a lot of leg flashing. While I would never say you have to adhere the old ‘one or the other’ rule regarding cleavage and legs, when taken to the extreme like this it really does work! Also, I have been hugely into all black outfits recently as you may have noticed on my Instagram, so this look was perfect for that too! Also, FYI, the skirt has a stretchy waistband which is perfect for any dinner parties/post-night out take away trips you may need to make.
Secondly, we have this raspberry coloured shirt which is just screaming CHRISTMAS DAY at me, partly because it’s a bit shiny but mostly because I am confident you could spill a lot of cranberry sauce down this and it would go pretty much unnoticed. I do think this look would also be perfect to add a little bit of a festive vibe into your workwear, because the tailoring does have a very workwear feel for it. These wide leg trousers fit amazingly over the waist, I just recommend going one full size down in these. I styled this with heels here but would also wear with loafers of brogues to make things a little more androgynous. I also think this shirt is the only item I have worn in this colour and, if I do say so myself, I LOVE how it look!
