Love ’em or loathe ’em, it’s officially time for Yuletide-themed clothes and accessories to see the light of day again and I for one couldn’t be more pleased. Falling firmly into the ‘love ’em’ camp, it’s the time of year that I can take my love of kitsch up another notch.
Acting as my festive accomplice / enabler, the lovely team of elves at George invited me to indulge in my love of corny Christmas ensembles by styling up one of their Christmas jumpers from this year’s collection. Snowflakes, penguins and reindeer, oh my! With nearly forty festive choices to pick from, I felt like a kid in a candy (cane) store…
Opting for fine knit over fluffy, and a pattern instead of one main design, this cute little holly number called out to me!
I love the bold contrast of the pattern against the plain black of the sweater, and being black, it’ll be great for mixing and matching over the coming weeks.
Combining textures is one of my favourite parts of winter, and I decided to style the jumper with a soft pleather A-line midi skirt. As well as feeling great on (and I can confirm that it passes the twirl test!), the skirt has two front pockets – and we all know how I feel about a skirt with pockets, right? Score!
Fearing that I was wearing too much black (the horror!) I knew some sparkle was in order, and this embellished collar was the perfect way to jazz things up without piling on loads of layers. I wore it with my gold Bonnie Bling snowflake necklace, because you can never have too many metallics at Christmas time.
This month’s Crown and Glory Glitterati subscription box was party-themed and one of my favourite pieces from it is this glittery name headband. Each subscriber was sent a surprise reindeer name in their parcel, and I was so pleased to get Vixen in mine!
Can we just take a moment to appreciate these super shiny golden brogues? If these aren’t made for dancing I don’t know what is!
My Holly Jolly Christmas Outfit includes:
I finished my look with a slick of red lipstick – it IS mistletoe season, after all!
Will you be wearing a Christmas jumper this year? What’s your favourite reindeer name?
