Are you all feeling festive yet? With less than three weeks to Christmas I have to admit that I’m really looking forward to it now. Opening my Marks & Spencer beauty advent calendar is something to look forward to every morning too. I’ll be sharing a few pics of that over on Instagram 😉

The tinsel skirt, glitter boots and star jumper add plenty of sparkle, while the sleeveless biker jacket gives the look a rock chic twist.

When we think of what to wear for Christmas parties and the big day itself, a few obvious things spring to mind: glitter, sequins, faux fur, metallics and red. For a bit of a change I’ve put together an outfit that’s both festive and edgy. The tinsel skirt, glitter boots and star jumper add plenty of sparkle, while the sleeveless biker jacket gives the look a rock chic twist.

I bought the tinsel skirt from Topshop in the January sales but this is the first time I’ve worn it. In fact I picked up quite a few sparkly, glittery and sequinned pieces Iincluding the ankle boots) in the sales, but by mid January I was longing for Spring and pretty pastels! I’ve teamed it with this Marks and Spencer star jumper which I found in a charity shop for £6. I’m sure it had never been worn because it’s in pristine condition.

If you’re afraid of wearing an all black outfit try mixing different textures and adding metallic accents to break it up.

To add a bit of biker chic to the outfit I pulled this very old sleeveless jacket from the back of the wardrobe. I’ve had it since my teens so that makes it about 30 years old! It’s a bit too big so I cinched it in with the belt. It has massive armholes so it does bag at the sides. It would be better suited to wearing over a big chunky jumper. For extra sparkle I added a crystal cocktail ring and drop earrings. If you’re afraid of wearing an all black outfit try mixing different textures and adding metallic accents to break it up. Black doesn’t have to be boring!

    I tend to be casual nowadays as we don’t have visitors. I used to dress up but as it’s just the 5 of us at home there’s no point in doing more than a Xmas jumper. Great idea to mix textures. I’m not loving my winter work wardrobe I have to admit.

    What a fab look you’ve put together there Emma. I think the baggy armholes look great and l am loving the different textures. I’m not loving this weather but I am loving getting into winter coats for the first time in 5 years! Suzi (Alternative Ageing)
