Fashion maths: The party edition #1

Kumiko faux fur coat (similar here)  Lovebird lace jumpsuit (here) Avril court shoes (similar here) all Whistles

As part of my capsule wardrobe project I have been playing around with elements of my autumn collection to put together a new 'Fashion Maths' series.  I like to mix and match the elements of my capsule to see how many different looks I can come up with, and I'll be sharing them here; a kind of 'flat lay outfit post' sort of thing. I've already posted a look here, but I wanted to also talk about another element of the wardrobe that might not be so everyday; what you would wear to parties and formal events.

It wouldn't be practical to include formal wear in my daily capsule as the reality of it is, they are rarely worn. These are genuinely my 'best' clothes and would be saved for occasions where my daily wardrobe just wouldn't cut it. I suppose I could have viewed the fact that I would need a mini capsule for formal attire as an excuse to go shopping, but a quick sift through my wardrobe showed me that I already had a few great pieces to work with.

Now, a large percentage of both my workwear and formal wear wardrobes are from Whistles. I used to work for the brand and I definitely made good use of my staff discount whilst there! I invested in a few really special pieces that are really quite timeless and that I've worn and loved before, but would certainly work well especially for the upcoming party season.

 A glamorous faux fur coat works as well in the day time over skinny jeans and knitwear as it does for evening. This nude/blush tone makes this jacket a little more evening appropriate and I really like the cut of this one. There are similar versions all over the high street and are definitely worth checking out.

I'm not a huge fan of formal dresses, as I always find it quite difficult to find fits that I like. In most instances I'll reach for a jumpsuit and this bandeau lace detailed one is so flattering. (It's also still available and in the sale!) I used to wear this to work with a fine gauge poloneck jumper underneath and pointed flats, but it's definitely black-tie enough to wear for an evening out!

A classic court is something I think I'll always have in my back pocket as a fail safe formal shoe. They look wicked with skinny jeans for that premium Scandi look too. What I liked about these was the heel; it's a really sculptural block heel as opposed to a spindly kitten! This pair from London Rebel have a similar style.

What's your go-to look for an evening out?
