I've always loved the elegance of a jumpsuit.  Sometimes when you know everyone is going to be dresses there's something very cool and sleek about wearing one.


December is always a busy month but personally, I’m a big fan.  I love that it’s so social and you get to catch up with friends and just generally celebrate.  It also means you get to dress up and wear beautiful clothes and let’s be honest, sometimes half the fun is in getting ready.  Throughout December I’ll be doing a mini series on Christmas party looks with lots of different styles and plenty of inspiration!


This first look is quite a typical “me look”.  Firstly, it’s black and secondly, it’s a jumpsuit.  I’ve always loved the elegance of a jumpsuit.  Sometimes when you know everyone is going to be dresses there’s something very cool and sleek about wearing one.


This French Connection number is amazingly versatile and you’ll get so much wear out of it, even after the Christmas party season has been and gone.  Although it’s very understated (perfect for those for don’t like to be the center of attention), the mesh inserts and neckline gives it just enough of a sexy touch.  I added a black grosgrain ribbon around the waist to add a more feminine touch but this would also look fab belted or simply on its own.

I’m a real wimp when it comes to cold weather, I just can’t handle being cold.  I know there are plenty of girls out there who will brave the elements and not wear a coat but I’m just not one of them!  The truth is wearing a coat or jacket shouldn’t have to ruin your outfit.  There are plenty of beautiful and elegant ones that enhance your look rather than detract from it.


I kept my accessories super simple with my favourite Saint Laurent Small Kate bag which I know already is going to be getting a lot of wear this December (read a full review about it HERE).  I also had my Christian Louboutin So Kate booties on which quite honestly you can never go wrong with, they’re such a classic.  Also, that flash of sexy red sole with an all black outfit always looks fab.  By the way, if anyone is wondering if this style of boot is comfortable, they (surprisingly) are which is absolutely amazing given how high and skinny the heel is.

I some fun with my jewellery and added some colour, it is Christmas after all!  These beautiful pieces from London Road Jewellery manage to straddle that fine line between elegant and fun.  They’re that perfect pop without being too over the top.
