There's nothing that screams Christmas more than a red sequin dress. I mean just look at those sparkles. Call me predictable but surely something so red and glitzy should only be saved for the festive season?! I don't know about you but red isn't a colour I generally tend to wear all year around. There is something about the colour that I just associate with Christmas which often means it doesn't get a look in through the months of January-November. When in doubt I would always opt for an LBD but with red being so striking, it's a colour that shouldn't be saved just for Christmas time.
If you hadn't guessed today's look is more of a party wear piece. As promised, I'll be bringing you party wear in abundance throughout the month of December (apologies in advance if this isn't your thing). In my last post I styled a velvet suit from day-to-night which you can see here, in case you missed it.
So you've got the dress nailed but what outerwear option do you pair with it? Instinctively, most would probably reach for their classic black coat. Whilst there's nothing wrong with that, I opted for a slight play on texture in the form of this amazing velvet puffer jacket. A pretty unlikely choice for me but I really can't get enough of this jacket right now. Not only does it look and feel amazing but it's one of the warmest I own at the moment too. No more shivering in the line outside your favourite Friday night hangout ladies.
