IT IS nearly Christmas and it is freezing, but that doesn’t have to stop us from looking and feeling good. With the cold weather plummeting lower as the days go on; don’t let the same happen to your confidence. Instead go for gold this winter with a metallic party dress and shimmer your way through the party season.
We have braced the winter chill to bring you the most fabulous fashion trends for the up and coming party season. Luckily for all men and women, gorgeous vintage granddad jumpers have hit our high streets and it couldn’t have happened at a better time. Now not only can we keep in with the trends this season but we can also keep warm and fight those winter blues. If your purse is feeling the winter pinch and your bank balance has frozen over, not to worry, the beauty of this fashion trend is; the more ‘granddad- like’ the better. Now we are not saying go over to your grandparent’s house and raid their wardrobe but charity shops will suffice your needs brilliantly and will most likely only set you back a few bob. However, if money isn’t an issue this winter, and you are feeling as flash as the lights on your Christmas tree, check out Topshop’s very own range of knit wear. A granddad jumper from this high street haven will cost you on average around 45 pounds. It may seem a lot, especially if you are a humble student where even a ‘Greggs ‘sausage roll forces you to empty your remaining pennies on the counter and feebly count them out, whilst muttering the words ‘sorry I’m just trying to use up all my change.’ Yeah right. A jumper like this will not only make you the envy of your style competitor, and let’s not lie we all have one, but it will also keep you warm and snug, even more brilliant if you don’t have someone to do that already for you this season.
If it’s the Christmas party that has you quaking in your UGGS this season then don’t fret, we have done the research, gone from shop to shop, prowled the internet and consequently made our Christmas lists even longer! From the dress, to the shoes, to the earrings you want to make sure you feel a million dollars at that Christmas party, without actually spending a cool million. Sparkles, embellishments, romantic ruffles and magnificent materials. Leather, crushed velvet, chiffons and silk, we are simply spellbound and spoilt for choice for this year’s all important Christmas party. Why not pump up your Christmas spirit with a LRD (little red dress.) Be a scarlet women and embrace this season’s hottest trend. Red is always an appropriate colour for a Christmas party dress, it not only brings Christmas spirit, it can also add confidence and sophistication to an outfit. If you don’t feel brave enough to take the plunge and dare to wear red, then why not go for red lips for instant glamour, or racy red heels to bring out your sexy side. Whether you just feel like trying something different or you’re trying to impress an office crush adding colour to an outfit will certainly add that festive glow. Take inspiration from Alexa Chung and Danni Minogue, you don’t have to fall into the short ‘n’ sexy party dress cliché. Focus on minimalism using simple statement pieces such as a mid-length skirt, a pussy bow shirt and a tailored blazer teamed with a mid heal. For those of you that are missing your bronzed bodies why not add gold dress jewellery to add a shimmery sheen back into your lives, go for something bold and dramatic. Do not be shy. No other outfit will scream ‘On Trend’ louder this party season.
