Nothing says Christmas like sequins! In this jumper you can sparkle in comfort and will look the part with very little effort. Pair it with some black jeans and heels for a more dressed up look or your favourite sweatpants for a casual stay-at-home vibe.
A jumpsuit is a great alternative to a skirt or dress and is perfect during the winter. The latte coloured bodice creates the illusion of a top and trousers and is super flattering. The jumpsuit is also fully lined which will help smooth over your figure.
The sheer sleeve on this dress is great if you don’t want to brave a bare arm. Always wearing a sleeve is actually one of Helen Mirren’s staple rules so if you love her style try this out for yourself. The blue embroidery is lovely and festive and we suggest keeping the removable lining in for a more flattering finish.
If you’ll be venturing out over Christmas, keep warm with super luxurious loop scarf. The deep navy colour is very sophisticated and makes a nice alternative to black. There is also grey, pink and beige option if you fancy switching it up even more.
Not all Christmas jumpers have to be intentionally ugly! Go for this simple stars and stripe design for a festive yet fashionable take on the classic.
