Festive Dressing with Amy Sequins

by Amy Sequins

Who doesn't love a bit of sparkle for the holiday season? We challenged Fashion & Lifestyle Creator Amy Sequins to create four festive looks to give you inspiration for the holidays.

Look 1

Holiday season can be chaotic (but fun!) so the Chaos Jumper by Iggy & Burt in a bright red shade was a must for the first truly busy festive period scattered with plans after a couple of quieter years. To give the outfit a bit more of a festive feel, I had to add a sequin midi skirt by Narro, which has two-tone sequins — either black or silver depending on the look you're going for — midi in length to keep even the most sequinned of items a bit more casual, plus a very deceivingly high platform Mary Jane by Rag & Co, topped off with glitter socks.

Nothing screams festive to me more than tartan and this absolutely incredible pleated kilt from independent brand Come On which is the epitome of cool. A day out shopping is the perfect excuse for wearing a thick (and quite warm on the legs) tartan midi, and to not take away from how special the skirt is, I just paired this with a plain chic black top

Now let's talk about winter boots! We all know what a typical winter boot looks like, but what if we switched it up for a western boot like these Asra Marvelo ankle boots. There's no better feeling than wearing a statement boot that brings an outfit to life. Not only are they wearable all year round, but they are excellent quality too meaning they will last you a lifetime (and also perfect for walking miles around the shops whilst looking for the perfect pair of slippers for your Nana).

I love a statement skirt with a casual tee, something about it screams let's dance the night away..,or in this Fanclub T-shirt’s case — 'Yes sir. I can boogie'! These shoes will always be the party piece for me, and these patent Rag&Co Mary Janes are totally epic and let's face it, a conversation starter. I love classic sequins during the holiday season but I personally think they are for all year round! With a skirt like this Amy Lynn piece you can take the sequins from day to night, from winter through summer plus everywhere in between.

After the chaos of the festive season has subsided and all of the tipples have been drunk, what is there to do but head out into the fresh air for a brisk snowy walk? One of my favorite things to do is to wear a cosy coat, a pair of classic jeans like these Baukjen organic boyfriend jeans and a pair of walking boots, and head out for a walk. This fluffy green checked midi coat by Vikiglow couldn't be more perfect for this, it had me feeling all wrapped up and cosy whilst looking chic too.
