I could have called this post oxblood head-to-toe, which is technically what is going on here, but I wanted something a little more festive. With this shade, pomegranate is what springs to mind first.
A big trend this season was wearing a single colour top to toe. I bought this skirt a few months ago (see it’s first blog outing here,) and the jumper shortly afterwards. Right from the off I wanted to wear them together. When it came to my first Christmas dinner of the year – a tradition with friends we have, it seemed like the perfect option.
Fortuitously I remembered my oxblood accented Zara boots that worn (bravely) without tights, look really striking with the slit front and snakeskin toe cap. In another stroke of outfit luck, this year I bought a snakeskin clutch from Whistles that completes the look.
The last touch of fierce glamour came from an AllSaints chunky necklace and I’ve even extended my colour of choice to my lips and nails. It’s a great Christmas look, whether for drinks as the sequin skirt lends glitz, but it’s also remarkably comfortable for when seasonal indulgence is required.
*Apologies for the crappy iPhone photos readers… I’ve missed so many great outfits recently in poor light and then my camera battery died when Pete was about to snap the first of these. However, on with the show!
