I believe in buying accessories that you can mix and match with not only 'going out' outfits but can also make a 'dressed down' outfit that little bit special. Neutral accessories work well, a hint of gold or a touch of leopard can make any outfit more interesting without being too much of a fashion statement. Here is my Christmas accessory edit that will take you through Autumn Winter to Spring Summer 14 and beyond....
Firstly a couple of key jackets:
|Zara Blazer with Gathered Shoulders £69.99|
|Zara Tuxedo Style Jacket £79.99|
Both these styles of jackets would look gorgeous over a sparkly party dress, or wear with a sequin skirt and grey T-shirt, or dress down with a pair of boyfriend jeans, trainers and chunky scarf in the Autumn.
Cardigans are key over Christmas party dressses this year...the look is laidback chic perfection:
A few gorgeous options from the highstreet:
|Gap Eversoft Cardigan £24.95|
|M&S Pure Cashmere Longline Cardigan £97|
|House of Fraser Cardigan reduced to £49 (was £89)|
|Uniqlo Cashmere Cardigan £79.90|
And a few casual tops to wear underneath cardigans:
|Uniqlo Cashmere Sweater £49|
|Zara Long Sweatshirt £9.99|
These will both be fab with a net skirt, sequinned skirt or patterned, cigarette trousers for a Christmas party....then at the weekend slip on with a pair of boyfriend jeans, leopard print heels and a black jacket as above..et voila your perfect weekend casual gong out outfit.
Now for the bags and shoes..
I do like a fairly neutral bags and shoes. Over the last few years animal print has almost become a neutral as it looks equally as good with black and block colours as it does clashed with florals, stripes and spots
Here are a few of my favourite leopard prints accessories on the high street:
|Autograph Leather Leopard Slouch Bag £99|
The shopper is large but I really think this works with cigarette trousers and is also fab for the weekend to put all the kids things in.
|Autograph Leather Slouch Bag £89|
|Dune Kitten Heel Shoes £69|
|M&S Autograph Ponyskin and Waterproof Leopard Print Shoes £99|
Basic black shoes and shoeboots:
|Zara Kitten Heel Shoes £39.99|
|Zara Leather High Heeled Shoe £49.99|
|Zara Shoe Boots £79.99|
|M&S Shoe Boot £49.50|
These boots are super flattering on due to the low front they elongate your legs and are also very comfortable.
|Gap Two Tone Leather Clutch £19.95|
|Zara Slim Clutch £19.99|
Statement necklaces next:
|Accessorize Round Stone Necklace £14.99 & Delphine Occassion Necklace £19|
|New Look Crystal Diamante Necklace £12.99|
|New Look Limited Gold Flower Necklace and Stud Earrings £24.99|
|Accessorize Eclectic Mini Brooch Necklace £15|
|Oasis Black Flower Necklace £25|
And just because I think these are super cute shoes, put them in your bag for when your high heels get uncomfortable..flat but still gorgeous!
|Zara Metallic Flats £25.99|
