What to Wear: Christmas Dinner with friends…

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.

Jumper, Warehouse Definitives // Skirt, Topshop // Boots, Zara (old) // Necklace, AllSaints // Bag, Whistles // Nails, Essie ‘Leading Lady

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!

  1. How freaky is this!?
    I have the skirt and Ive just logged onto look for a top to go with my skirt for Christmas dinner – oxblood it is!

  2. A practical question, if I may! I bought the beautiful, sparkly skirt and wore it at a party – felt the bees knees, I did – but I’m a sparkly skirt first-timer and boy did it do damage to my tights where the sequins rubbed a bit at the hem…….any advice most welcome…..must I resort to fake tan and bare legs on Christmas morn………? Thanks

    • Hi Sarah – I know the problem!

      Honestly, I don’t think there’s much to be done, other than earmark the same pair of tights. I find the lining goes a bit skew whiff on this skirt too some sometimes pokes out of the bottom too much and other times is too high causing this problem.
      I was going to a warm modern flat for this Christmas dinner so knew I’d be ok without tights… guess it just depends on your house! I think other sparkly skirts might not do it if they were constructed differently.
