OUTFITS FOR YOUR XMAS SOCIAL CALENDAR #12DAYS12OUTFITS
Around this time of year, I always have friends and clients alike sending me iPhone pics of their outfits as they attempt to find something to wear for the numerous occasions popping up in their social calendar.
So this year, inspired by the 12 days of Christmas we give you #12Days12Outfits.Throughout December, We’ll be showing people how to utilise the key staples that almost everyone has in their wardrobe.
I’ll give bite size guidance on everything you could need from event specific style tips, red Xmassy lips and advice on how to stay on trend. You CAN build your outfit around a key favourite that you’re bound to own already. So true to my styling technique it’s all about ‘Old Clothes, New Ways of Wearing them’ and using your existing wardrobe as a base before rushing out to buy the pieces which will perfect your outfit.
Whilst I’ll be releasing the #12Days12Outfits look book gradually across my social media channels, here’s a preview of the first 4 looks.
Day 1: On the first day of Christmas my true love said to me ‘I have nothing to wear to do my Christmas Shopping’:
Key Wardrobe Staple: Everybody but everybody’s got a pair of statement flat black winter boots
Soon to be running around the shops on the hunt for gifts? Comfort AND style are the key. Get those flat winter boots out and build your outfit around them. Just, add a little flair.
Head to Pinterest and we’ll show you how to create a look like this one.
Day 2: On the 2nd day of Christmas my true love said to me ‘I have nothing to wear for Christmassy drinks with the girls’
Key Wardrobe Staple: Something blush
INTO the pink…. I love all things muted blush this winter and everyone’s got something rosy in their wardrobe – We are thinking pink as we plan Xmas drinks with the girls - pink champagne, oversized pink coat, light wintery pastel pink lippy (trendalicious for winter). Just add pink.
Head here for more inspiration and the finishing touches to the look.
Day 3: On the 3rd day of Christmas my true love said to me ‘I have nothing to wear for Client Christmas drinks’
Key Wardrobe Staple: tartan or a midi pencil skirt
Wondering what to wear to sup mulled wine, munch mince pies and talk business? Get that mid-length tartan skirt into the mix.
Day 4: On the fourth day of Christmas my true love said to me, ‘I have nothing to wear to our trip to Skate at Somerset House.’
Key Wardrobe Staple: Statement Scarf or a soft fluffy jumper
If you have to fall over on the ice, you might as well look good on the way down. This winter dove grey and icy pastels are the new neutral so make casual work harder for you by using flashes of these on trend colours in even your most ‘effortless’ of ensembles.
To see this look, and the remaining 8 Days of #12Days12Outfits just ‘like’ the Back of the Wardrobe facebook page .
