The countdown to Christmas has begun and party season is almost upon us! Although we’d all love to splash our cash on every sparkly thing that catches our eye, there is a cheaper alternative. Allow yourself to fall in love with one piece, simple and not over the top, so that it’s easy to style in a few different ways. Here is an example of how to have some fun with your festive outfits!
For my base, I have chosen a straightforward yet sophisticated black jumpsuit from Missguided which can easily be styled for every occasion this Christmas.

Nice and easy, just throw on your favourite Christmas jumper like this one from New Look. This look could be used for a slightly more casual occasion; with the bottom half of the jumpsuit still making the statement that you’ve made an effort. Combined with some tinsel in your hair, or a cheeky Christmas hat, you’ll be the festive spirit of the party!

If you want to add a pop of colour to your outfit, red is the definitely the direction to take and I love this gilet from Topshop. Faux fur is a popular choice this Christmas, meaning that you can also pick up a less pricey dupe in good ol’ Primark. By pairing this outfit with some blood red heels (and sparkly red jewellery, if you’re feeling brave), this option would be perfect for a formal event.

The last option that I am going to present you with is a jewellery heavy outfit. Forget the jumper or the jacket – just go hard on those accessories. Whether you want sparkles and glitz or classic and stylish, a piece from your jewellery box such as this statement collar from River Island should add a festive feel to your outfit. Don’t currently own anything appropriate? Just another opportunity to pop down to Primark, leaving you extra spending money for getting royally egg-nogged.
