While ’tis the season to be joyful, eat way too much, watch The Sound of Music for the millionth time in those cosy Christmas pyjama bottoms, there’s no escaping that Christmas party at the office or that family party everyone dreads. Instead of wondering which dress to wear this time, I plan on foregoing dresses alltogether this Yule time season, and go for gold every time in a jumpsuit. Classic black, with a lace back, striking crimson, budget friendly, structured elegance or a strapping strapless version, the possibilities are endless! Pair them with statement pieces or fine, understated necklaces, you can dress them up or down as you wish. Feeling chilly? Add in a tailored blazer, and once you escape that party to go dancing, guess what? No outfit change needed! What’s your favourite this season?
No matter how often one or the other fashion prodigy (whether real or self-proclaimed) exclaims that “… is the new black”, black and white will always remain the ultimate black. Never out of style, never dated, never inappropriately over- or underdressed, a black or white outfit exudes class, self confidence and above all, elegance. It is proof of a femininity that is neither trend- nor age bound, or as the great Yves Saint Laurent once said “fashion fades, but style is eternal.” Or maybe I should just name this article “British Highstreet fashion needs to come to Belgium!” Starlight print trousers Houndstooth Dress Islo Lasercut sweater Ankle boots Silk lace panel top Scalloped hem top
