The December Glossary – Trends you need on your radar this month| December 1, 2018
All restraint is now out of the window. The tree is up, we have our festive jumpers on 24/7, we’re eating chocolate for breakfast, and our boss has had to ask us to remove our flashing tinsel earrings on more than one occasion (they’re definitely workwear appropriate, right?). Merry December, babe, Christmas has arrived. To get your party season style on lockdown, we’ve collected some style inspo from our fave #babesofmissguided, to give you some major outfit goals. Here are the top 5 trends to be seen in, check them out below:
Satin has been a key fabric for all of 2018, and it isn’t going anywhere as we move into autumn. The possibilities are endless with satin. Up your workwear style with a satin shirt and tailored suit combo, to show your office who’s the ultimate girl-boss. Or, if you’re after a more smart-casual vibe, why not throw on a loose satin shirt over jeans for the perfect in between. Got a big night out to go to? Satin can sort you out for that too! Try a satin dress with barely-there heels to look like you’ve got your life together even when you’re on the dancefloor at 3am.
If you don’t own something sequinned then you need to catch up babe, because this is THE style to be seen in this Christmas. This look is all about everything from attention-grabbing embellished pieces to more subtle, classy co-ords. Wear a gorgeous sequinned jumpsuit, with barely-there makeup and barely-there shoes. Go plain with the rest of your accessories to let the sparkle do the talking. As party season marches on, sequins and metallics are easy statement styles that you’ll be seeing more and more. Turn heads in a fringed, sequin co-ord, for a classic, eye-catching look.
Does anything scream luxury like velvet? Invest in that luxe look for less with a velvet playsuit. Drape blazer styles give that “I’ll meet you in the billiard’s room” feel, so wear over a lacy bodysuit to vamp the look up to next level fire. The matching trousers finish off the outfit to perfection, leaving you looking head to toe woah. Want to free the leg? Velvet slip dresses are IN this party season. Wear yours with barely-theres and a matte lip. Or, a velvet blazer playsuit gives a smart but sexy impression that’s sure to turn some heads on your next night out. Feeling expensive but still having money left in your purse for shots? Yasss.
Klaxon alert… There are 3 weeks ’til Christmas (not that we’re counting). That means that party season has officially begun. Take inspo from the most unlikely fashion icon ever, and make sure you’re repping Santa Claus’ favourite hue because if there’s one colour you should definitely be wearing RN it’s red. An LRD (that’s Little Red Dress, FYI) always looks AMAZE on a night out. Slick on a matching red lip to really turn up the heat. Or, go for a more subtle approach and wear a red bodysuit or top with your fave pair of jeans for ultimate cool-girl vibes.
If you’re all about the outerwear this season (and who isn’t? it is f*cking freezing after all…), then you should definitely add a faux fur coat to your ‘drobe. Faux fur is probably the biggest statement you can make with your outerwear, and it’s sure to look amazing with pretty much anything you throw at it. Black and brown styles are toned-down enough for even the most casual day-time affair. Or, if you’re off out-out this winter, finish off your party dress or statement co-ord with a fab longline faux fur coat. Plus it’ll keep you super warm… Bonus.
