Holiday style guide with The Black Tux


Didn't I tell you we've got some exciting things coming up here? 



Jumpsuit - H&M
Shoes - M&S (similar)
Bag - Primark


I've never been to a proper Christmas party before, just my age I think, or that none of my circles reached that far. But this year, with a few parties coming up, it was time to jump in with all of it, and honestly, I found it a complete nightmare! Trying to find the perfect look just left me with so many questions (and hours in tiny fitting rooms), is it too formal? Is is too casual? Too much skin? Not enough skin? Age appropriate? Yeah, I think we've all been there and then, once you've finally found 'the one', how do you style it? Well luckily for me, this year, I've teamed up with The Black Tux to grab some styling tips and share their holiday style guide. Plus, bonus points, they'll help style your date too ;)

Thinking forward to my event, it was a pretty sm-ancy affair, but not to over the top that meant I had to wear an evening gown, something slightly formal and 'adult' were the only guidelines and to my surprise I found just that in H&M. Seen as dresses leave me in all sort of a tizzy, I opted for a jumpsuit, not a classic party look but it gave me a gorg silhouette plus, I was totally feeling myself. The slightly masculine, power-woman appeal of this jumpsuit completely won be over, a garment that can embody a whole new feeling, a new confidence, is always a winner in my book. The only down side is the jumpsuit probably isn't made for ladies with a little bit more on top, safety pins are my saviour.

 In terms of styling I went back to The Black Tux's style guide for a little guidance, cause sometimes I'm pretty hopeless. Even though I found myself a little in between formal and professional, I decided to mix the two together, letting the jumpsuit do the talking but making sure my accessories made an impression as well. These lace up heels were there to add a playful touch, and even though I was wearing for the first time my feet survived the whole night, which was a complete blast btw, and I managed to bag a ton of compliments, winning!

Hopefully this little guide can help you out too, plus, The Black Tux are a great source to grab your date a look too with their tuxedo rental service, perfect party season for both of you!
