So if your December calendar is quickly filling up with Christmas parties, from cheesy office gatherings (the kind you’d rather skip!) to black-tie dinners and all-night New Year’s Eve parties. ’Tis the season for Christmas glitz, glamour, and three-dimensional sparkle, especially after a few years of “less is more” party dressing. If you need tips on how to dress for a party, then I would recommend you read Julien MacDonald’s article for elle.com where he breaks it down sequin by sequin - Julien MacDonald’s guide to glam dressing . But if you would rather add something new to your wardrobe that sparkles like a disco ball, then read my shopping choices of what you should be buying right now for the party season.

finding your style again post-pregnancy

wardrobe.JPG

Finding your style again post-pregnancy can often be a challenge and can be plagued with anxiety. Whether it be about leaving your baby for the first time, juggling the commuting to the realisation that you have been living in leggings and the same t-shirt for the best part of a year. No doubt you have been through four different jeans sizes in 18 months and perhaps don’t even recognise your body anymore due to the amount of changes it has gone through.

Before pregnancy you probably had a low-key look, classic maybe with your own twist but carefree and effortless, at least that was the idea. What you now realise it that once you have had a baby, there is no such thing as effortless. You haven’t been dressing for yourself for what feels like a lifetime so the thought of pulling a half decent, stylish outfit together feels alien to you. You can’t just throw on anything anymore, it needs to be more considered if you are going to get to work on time and in a half decent dressed state.

Here is where I come in and help you through the process of finding your style again. I don’t want you to be a half decent dressed state, I want to you to be able to put your best style forward everyday you walk back into the work place.

Before you go back into the work place you need to spend some time reviewing your wardrobe and what you have that fits your body shape, fits your job and can be unearthed from pre-pregnancy days. You need to detox your wardrobe and get rid of the ‘in-between’ jeans, leggings, over-sized shirts and jersey tops that cover up everything but don’t flatter you. Trying on everything is a MUST, you need to see your body shape, what works and what doesn’t work so you can focus on the best items in your wardrobe. Through this you will then identify what is missing and what you NEED to ensure you can pull stylish, age appropriate outfits together everyday for work. What you want to create is a work capsule wardrobe that doesn’t take up too much space, that is easy to pull into outfits, items can be mixed and matched with each other, and is versatile.

Shopping with a little one can seem like a daunting task, but once you know which items are missing from your wardrobe this helps to narrow things down for you. I can help with inspiration for those pieces, with shopping for them and giving you suggestions of new places to buy items that you might not of thought of before. Or of course I can do the shopping for you!

The pre-pregnancy you is in there somewhere, it’s just lost it’s way since your little one came along. We can find your style again, increase your confidence and make you feel fabulous everyday whether you are going to work or enjoying your life with the ones you love.

buy a skirt to update your style

We are currently mid way through the Autumn season, I have shopped the best pieces on the high street for clients and now the run up to Christmas parties starts to get going. But what if there was one thing you could buy to update your wardrobe rather than a whole outfit? The skirt trend has been getting stronger for a few seasons now and it is still the most wanted item out there. For me there are 3 skirts on the high street right now that are putting their best foot forward and it’s time to make your choice; are you a sequins kind of girl, a leather kind of girl or do you prefer a roaring leopard print skirt? The choice is yours…

Sequin skirt

You are probably thinking this is the most un-versatile skirt to buy right now, but you would be wrong! Gone are the days of only wearing your sequin skirt to formal events. Sequin skirts (maxi, midi or mini) can be dressed up or down.  The sequin skirt is an effortlessly chic statement piece that easily transitions from day to night. Wear to brunch with friends, an art gallery afterward and to dance the night away. I love my sequin skirt, I can make a real statement when wearing it in the evening but also cleverly pair it down with my sweatshirts and trainers in the day. Who doesn’t love a bit of glitz and glamour in their wardrobe, see my picks below and update your wardrobe with a bit of sparkle.

Where to buy your sequin skirt this season -

  1. Topshop, sequin stripe midi skirt, £65.00

Leather skirt

The leather skirt has been given a reboot for AW18, it’s midi and comes in lovely dark shades so it is still practical to wear with black tights and boots if you wish to. A leather midi is your ideal choice for Autumn; leather is warm, it works well with a heel, a boot or a pair of trainers, and can be versatile to wear day-to-night. They have become a wardrobe staple, something that is an investment piece that can be brought out year after year and will always look stylish. Simply add a roll neck, a sweater, a shirt, a t-shirt and then some boots. It’s the perfect chic to street update for your wardrobe.

Where to buy your leather skirt this season -

  1. Whistles, Burgundy leather pencil skirt, £195.00

Leopard print skirt

As you well know Leopard print has been a winning print this Autumn, but it never goes out of style and will never date. Knowing how to wear leopard print comes down to this one simple, unwritten rule: Treat it like any black item in your wardrobe. Yes, this might seem counter-intuitive, but adding a little leopard to any outfit upgrades and harmonises a look. True, leopard print has often walked the line between flashy and luxurious, but it's been proven season after season that fashion can't get enough of it. After a summer of a leopard print skirt being the most popular skirt on instagram by the Australian brand Réalisation Par, don’t bother with dresses, tops or coats this season to update your style - the leopard print skirt is the long term investment piece for Autumn.

  1. Never Fully Dressed, leopard print wrap skirt, £59.00
