American singer/song writer, Aubrey O’Day, looks like a glamorous little gothic fairy, or a total party princess. You just can’t go wrong in a tulle midi skirt, and this black number is perfect for the Christmas party season. Topshop’s offering has a lovely mix of the demure midi-length, with the sexy sheer layers exposing a bit of leg for a fun, youthful feel. If you’re more of a print girl, then head over to ASOS for this gorgeous floral design.
The rich tone is perfect for partying all through the winter, and the mixed up florals will look great with a simple plain tee in the summer. This is the definition of an all round investment piece (and it’s a snip at just £65!).
The Northerner in me just loves a good sequin. I’m a magpie for all things shiny, and I’m currently obsessing over this Alice + Olivia sequinned top . Yes, we’ve established I’m not a fan of cropped tops, but paired with a high waisted skirt I might just be able to get away with baring the tiniest slivers of skin. The bracelet sleeves and slash neckline give enough coverage to compensate for the cropped length, and the fitted shape will work perfectly with the fuller tulle skirt. If you’re saving your pennies for Christmas presents and can’t justify spending so much on yourself, ASOS, as always, is here to save the day. If you like to keep your multi-textured looks streamlined, then stick to the same colour palette throughout and go for this beautiful black matt sequinned top.
As Aubrey demonstrates, the pointed court is the most perfect shoe to go with such a statement skirt. But simple doesn’t mean boring – let your footwear shine! Go bold with these neon and black Jimmy Choos , or sparkle in my faves, these gorgeous rose gold textured leather Isabel Marant hotties with cute bow detail.
