If store promos are anything to go by, the end of the year is nigh and we are sitting on Christmas season again! Antlers out!
This, of course, also means office parties, weddings, Newyears eve bashes and other weird and wonderful functions (I just got an invitation themed “A Winter Wonderland Christmas” - I mean - what do you wear to something like that in the middle of summer?!)We’ve also been invited to a city wedding (chic and Greek) and going to another of Don’s friends’ weddings that is a casual lawn shindig…enough for you to sit with your hands in your hair?!
Not to worry! I have 4 gorgeous festive season solutions for you, in collaboration with the amazing Dune London.
LOOK 1 | Loud and Proud
Metallics and all things print are all the rage right now. On runways and the street, floral prints and metallics are everywhere for his and hers. These heels are actually the first ones that I noticed at the Dune London store and is sure to get you noticed. Pair it with a printed two piece and this mini backpack and you are sure to get noticed at any office party! (Who’s in for a pay raise in January? #Powerdress #Girlboss!)
LOOK 2 | An Aphrodite Affair
From Santorini to Summer Place, this look is perfect for attending a more formal wedding. This heel and clutch combo give me all the Aegan island holiday feels but you might have to take them off when the plate breaking starts and change into some flats (see the next look).
LOOK 3 | Highs and Lows (surprise surprise!)
It’s happened to us all - you show up at a function with heels and end up stuck in the grass half of the evening, ruining your shoes completely.
And if you’re not a heel-stopper kinda gal or just can’t stand wearing heels for a full five hours (that’s me right there), I have the perfect solution - packing lookalike flats - these fit into your matching handbag and no one will notice you slipping out of your heels and into these stunning flats!
LOOK 4 | Polo perfection
This gorgeous bejewelled flats are such a staple for holiday event season. I can totally see this at a lawn wedding or a polo party paired with a chic jumpsuit or dress. Total must-have for any girl and can be re-invented to suit virtually any part theme.
Well I hope that this will help you in planning your perfect festive season and office party wardrobe! Have fun and remember to “tactfully assist any intoxicated co-worker that is embarrassing themselves in front of your boss…” (best advice from Emsie!)
