The Christmas season
– time to shine?


In the fashion stakes, the festive season can be a difficult one to get right – too much sparkle and you risk looking like a Christmas cracker, too little and you can find yourself fading into the background.

Personally, I’ve always loved a touch of sparkle at Christmas – the key is knowing when to opt for an all-out glitz and glamour versus a more subtle affair.

Here are some of our favourite pieces to make sure you’re the belle of the ball this season:

Top picks

1. Religion Christmas Kimono Jacket In Sequin Co-Ord - £135.00

When opting for sequins, the trick is to pick a simple shape. This kimono co-ord from Religion ticks all the boxes! Separate the top and bottoms for maximum versatility – reinventing new looks that last the party season and beyond.

If you’re looking for a grown-up take on the Christmas jumper, then look no further. This Markus Luper jumper quite literally has ‘sparkle’ written all over it. A great go-to with this season’s must have leather look leggings, or lovely over a pair of pyjamas on Christmas morning!

4. Miu Miu Glitter Sunglasses – £207

There’s often a bit of fence-sitting when it comes to sunglasses in winter. I say, nonsense! There’s something really playful about these Miu Miu shades which don’t take themselves too seriously. Perfect for the Christmas day walk – and then some.

5. Zara long fringed dress - £59.99

Zara is having a bit of a moment this season – think embroidered prints, floaty silk blouses and shiny ankle boots. This long fringed dress is a real steal at £60 that you’ll wear time and time again. If you can brave the cold, pair with some strappy sandals or opt for some tough leather boots for a more biker chic vibe.

8. Zara evening bucket bag - £45.99

Another Zara favourite is this abstract bucket bag. We love the colours, the print and the long chain which is great for draping over one shoulder or wearing cross-body. A great bag for the party months.

Okay, so this is a bit of an investment piece but oh-so gorgeous! Stars may be a massive trend this season but they definitely have staying power when it comes to your forever wardrobe. Love it!
