I was recently contacted by The Outnet to put together an 'office Christmas party' look using the amazing plethora of products on the site. I absolutely love The Outnet; I shop there as often as I can afford and always keep an eye on the pieces on offer. They sell designer items at up to 75% off, which, for a bargain hunting fashionista like me, has huge appeal. The site is updated regularly and you can set up alerts for your favourite brands, to tell you when new stock comes in or items go on sale.
An office party can be a tricky event to dress for. I did work in an office for about a year and the dress code was pretty relaxed, but it was still important to be smart enough to look professional. I think this idea rings true of an office or work party situation, too; you want to look fabulous, but also appropriate. It is likely that your boss or superiors will be in attendance, so it can be important to get the balance right between suitability and fun!
I've picked an outfit that deftly bridges the gap between both of these requirements. I love a smart trouser and top combination as an alternative to a party frock; they look dressy enough to be party-suited but also are really easy to wear. Simple, classically cut black trousers are a wardrobe staple and can be worn year-round; likewise, a low heeled court with a touch of sparkle are a great failsafe shoe option for your wardrobe. I chose a pretty printed crepe top by Tibi which will be perfect for wearing in the summer time with skinnies, but is dressed up beautifully with this statement velvet jacket which is the most perfectly sumptuous evening cover up.
For jewellery, I chose an amazing pair of statement earrings by Kenneth Jay Lane exclusively for The Outnet, which certainly provide some festive sparkle! The sleek clutch from Mysuelly is a perfect accompaniment to the look and adds a touch of texture.
