Bargain Buys With A Festive Feel If You’re Not Ready To Say Goodbye To Christmas
29th Dec 2017
The sales have already started, so bag a bargain with a festive feel just in time for the party season.
This chic maxi dress is a year-round show stopper. I love the subtle cut-out detail at the waist. If you’d prefer not to show even in a hint of flesh though, wear a lace camisole underneath.
Draped maxi dress, €48.99 (reduced from €69.99) at H&M
I adore the raspberry shade of this chiffon top – it’s a little more subtle than traditional festive red – as it will flatter most skin tones and work beautifully with all of this season’s earthy tones.
Plumeti blouse, €24.99 (reduced from €35.99) at Mango
Silvery metallics can leave skin looking a little cold sometimes, so adding a velvet jacket adds warmth and softness to this whole look. A mohair cardigan would have the same effect.
Metallic tie-back jumpsuit, €26 (reduced from €52) at Topshop
I love the juxtaposition here of no sleeve with a billowing, fluted sleeve. It’s sexy, but chic. Perfect for a Christmas party.
Long-sleeve, one-shoulder top, €16 (reduced from €47) at Warehouse
For something more original than a little black dress, try this silver/grey knit dress instead. It’s beautifully fitted, but the frill detail prevents it from appearing too bodycon, subtly softening the whole look.
Short knit dress, €129.50 (reduced from €185) at Maje
Fabulous style is a celebration of being alive. Let’s dress ourselves happy again.
