Skinny jeans are still a current favourite and are perfect for festive party dressing. What with freezing cold nights – looking fabulous but staying warm is no easy feat! Taking one pair of skinny jeans, I show you three ways to adapt them for your Christmas and New Year celebrations.
The Jeans: J BRAND DENIM PATRIOT BLUE COATED MARIA HIGH RISE SKINNY JEANS, £250
These gorgeous coated jeans offer a more wearable alternative to leather. In a flattering high rise style, they’ll hold your tummy in and are a good investment continuing into spring summer 2013 when fabrics become more experimental with coated, high-sheen, iridescent and leather-look textures.
After work drinks: Hippy Chick meets Rock Chick with a sequin cami, biker jacket and platforms
This is an overall casual look with added attitude and glamour thanks to the sparkling top, studded jacket and glittering heels that tie in the colours perfectly.
Get the look: French Connection Sequin Cami Top, £72. ASOS Studded Leather Look Biker, £70. Silver platform sandals, £35
Dinner date or trendy party: Simple yet lavish and elegant with a tuxedo jacket and opulent gems
Teaming your skinnies with nothing but a tuxedo jacket and plunging neckline. Decorate your decolletage with opulent jewelry or reams or pearls. Wear with killer stilettos and that’s all you need for an understated yet confident look.
Get the look: BY MALENE BIRGER FELINAS TUXEDO JACKET, £325. OSCAR DE LA RENTA 24-karat gold plated crystal necklace, £535
Go anywhere: with a dress and sparkling clutch
Throw on this go-with-anything-and-go-anywhere dress over your skinny jeans and you’ll look hot to trot for any occasion, from drinks with friends to lunch with the Boss or cocktails with girl friends. The clutch adds a touch of festive sparkle and picks out the stunning azure shades in the dress, again taking you into spring too.
