Hot Party Outfits
Sexy Structure, Velvet Textures and Red Tassells
Feeling Christmassy yet? Perhaps it's a tad too early for decorations but it's not too early to start organising your party wardrobe! This week I have bought three items that I will wear all together as a complete outfit but that can also be mixed and matched to create lots more outfits. Fabulous and frugal therefore more enjoyable all round.
A big trend this season is off the shoulder or Bardot style tops and dresses. Many years ago I had a beautiful tailored bustier top that I have never found a replacement for - until now! Whistles have this gorgeous sexily tailored 'Eloise' bustier that will look truly awesome when worn with jeans (ripped even better!) or skinny smart trousers and heels. You could add a big old statement necklace or choker for extra drama or with super bling-y earrings.
Velvet trousers are a good alternative to jeans for this season. When not wearing these with the Eloise bustier above you could mix them with a tee shirt or jumper and trainers and wear during the daytime. Jeans can get rather boring and velvet just looks so glamorous especially at this time of year. These are from Topshop Unique and are also being stocked by Net-A-Porter.
Red for Danger
I cannot believe these shoes! They are completely on-trend for this season with their tassells and ties, keeping your wardrobe up-to-date, they are leather and they are only £34.99 at River Island! They would look great with the top and trousers above adding a pop of colour. I would also suggest wearing these with a cropped trouser or with rolled-up boyfriend jeans so you can show off the shoe a bit more. Use for indoor parties whilst it's cold but these strappy saviours will look beautiful in the Summer.
So there you have a smart but sexy party outfit that would work for lots of different venues and events this Christmas.
Next time on the blog I am focusing on great pieces from Topshop's luxury Unique collection with a mix of party and daywear.
