Style Diary | The Christmas Party

The Christmas party season is well and truly underway, which means wearing all the velvet, sequins and faux fur I can get my hands on. ‘Tis the season for sparkles and, in my opinion, the more the merrier, but if you’re looking for a more understated but equally Christmassy look then you can’t go wrong with velvet.

I’m a big fan of velvet if you can’t clad yourself in it at Christmas then when can you?! We’re spoilt for choice when it comes to velvet pieces on the high street at the moment so it was a tricky but fun task picking out something to wear to a Christmas party.

In the end I went for this dark green velvet jumpsuit from New Look, which I wore to a friend’s Christmas drinks last weekend. Paired with a simple pair of black suede heels and super sparkly jewellery (obvs), it was the perfect outfit for mingling under the mistletoe.

Being a jumpsuit it’s really comfy whilst creating a sleek, stylish silhouette. It also has a tie belt so you can adjust according to the level of mulled wine and mince pie consumption!

Let me know in the comments below what you’re wearing to your Christmas parties this year!
