I’ve been a lucky girl in the past few weeks, as I’ve received a few items from different retailers – including this gorgeous black sequinned jacket from the lovely people at Kaleidoscope!
I was able to choose whatever I wanted within a £100 budget – I had to pick a ‘dream party wear outfit’… And what better item to choose than something black and sequinned – I have wanted a sequinned jacket since, well, forever. It’s the perfect item to throw over any outfit to make it shout it’s Christmas…!
This outfit would be perfect for the Christmas party season because I think it could work for most types of Christmas events – you’d feel dressed up enough for slightly formal dos, but just as funky and on-trend for the more, shall we say, raucous events(!) The jacket is also the perfect item to have on hand to transform your everyday work outfit from day to night for those straight-after-work Christmas get-togethers: a suit blazer could see you through the day, while more office-friendly heels or even flats could be swapped for some statement heels – in my case, my fave skyscraper leopard Kurt Geigers. Add some fabulous gold jewellery (I chose dangly gold earrings, though chandelier earrings would also work, plus some blinging bracelets) and you’re good to go… I’ll be wearing this outfit when I go out with the girls from work for our Christmas get together!

Go to http://www.kaleidoscope.co.uk – their brand is aimed at 45+ year old women and although I’m a little under their target age, I found some really classic pieces I loved. So whatever you’re wearing to your Christmas parties this Christmas – have fun and of course stay safe!
