Believe me when I say that I have never worn a trouser suit in my life! Even when going to interviews I tend to prefer a smart dress and a blazer, so this was definitely an outfit which was a little bit experimental. The logic (or perhaps lack of logic!) behind it was that I wanted to try something different and take a break from party dresses, given that there are so few which I like in the shops at the moment. I'd seen this suit in Warehouse at the start of the autumn, and although I loved it I didn't really feel confident enough to try it out. However, with my new found love of printed trousers, I decided to throw caution to the wind and order it from ASOS when I noticed that it was reduced in their sale last week. Not only does it really remind me of Miu Miu's AW12 presentation, but I think the rich burgundy colourway and diamond print offer a really nice alternative take on festive dressing. Teamed with a simple black blouse and these amazing winklepicker style shoes which I picked up after the Next Lock In, this was a more androgynous approach to a Christmas party outfit, but one which was extremely comfortable and perfectly practical.
What did you wear to your work Christmas party? And how are you planning to spend the next week?
