The family get-together
With all the high-octane pieces out there for party season, it can be tempting to play it safe with minimal pieces and retreat into your trusty little black dress, but before you dismiss sequins completely, hear us out when we tell you that a statement midi skirt is more versatile than you might first think. The simple silhouette makes for easy styling: dress it down with graphic tee and trainers in smart/casual situations, or elevate it with black knitwear and heels.
For those of us who feel that no expense can be spared on a New Year’s Eve outfit, French Connection has you covered, zebra print sequins and all. The darker undertones in this mini give it a rock 'n' roll feel, which means it looks just as good with a more feminine heel as it does with ankle boots. There’s no better way to start a new decade than in your most glittery finest, we say.
Sometimes the only thing better than getting dressed up to go out is getting dressed for an evening in, especially after a jam-packed December. Not that we need extra reason to stay in bed, but these loungewear pieces will definitely have you cancelling any January plans in favour of staying in to spend some quality time with your sofa and any edible Christmas hampers.
