It’s the perfect time of the year for rich jewel tones. Emerald, sapphire, ruby, and amethyst tones are all beautiful for festive nights out. What else goes perfectly with rich tones and looks great this time of year? Lace of course; lace party wear is everywhere at the moment and it’s a good investment because it’s chic every year. If you are looking for an alternative to the little black dress, try a top and skirt combo. If you want the safety of slimming black, you can still wear it on the half you are most concerned about, it’s the bottom for me.

This top is from New Look. The pleating and lace shoulders are simple details that work beautifully with the deep purple colour. (sorry but the pictures just aren’t doing the colour justice) I also like the covered buttons at the back so it looks good with an up do.

The lace skirt is from Awear and you may have seen it in this previous post. The detail in the lace is really pretty and feels expensive considering it was an inexpensive skirt. I’m trying to resist buying the same skirt in emerald green.

The shoes are also from New Look. How could I pass purple suede(ish). The block heel and platform give me that all important height but they are also comfortable.

I bought my statement necklace while on holiday in Portugal.

What are you wearing for festive nights out?
