I N S P I R A T I O N | Festive Fashion

12 November, 2013

Festive fashion is one of the most adventurous times to play with your wardrobe. After all you can run tinsel and glitter through your hair and no one will batter an eyelid! This is something I wish was acceptable all year round! I know it's only mid-November but I am in fact a self-confessed Christmas lover and admirer. As soon as it hit midnight on November I played my first Christmas album and I squealed aloud when I saw the Christmas German market being built in town earlier this week. I love it! I possibly think I appreciate the time now more than when I was a kid. I adore the way people are so much cheerier than the usual; just the way the majority of the world is excited and counting down for just one special day.

Of course the season calls for the traditional novelty jumper and matching family pyjama sets, but festive fashion stretches beyond the ugly sweaters and fair isle slipper socks. Think sparkles, tartan scarves, velveteen trousers and knee-high boots. I've been scouring lookbooks high and low for some Christmassy inspiration when it comes to my outfits over the next couple of months. I tend to look towards British style icons like the gorgeous Sienna Miller when it comes to winter clothing as they know how to dress appropriately for our unfortunate weather. I've got a fair few festive activities coming up over the next month or so, which creates an excuse for shopping. I'm on the lookout for festive co-ords or luxe, embellished party dresses for Christmassy evenings out. Also at the top of my list is a fluffy jumper, knee-high black suede boots and a faux fur pure white coat. A girl can dream...
