Without a doubt, autumn/winter is my favourite season for dressing. It’s the possibilities; the textures, the colours, the chance to wear plentiful glitter and sparkles, like a giant festive bauble. However, I find that it’s a fine line when it comes to dressing up once the temperature drops, and it can sometimes be trickier than I’d like to work out how to dress up an outfit when it’s freezing outside.
When new fashion brand Luxemme recently got in touch and offered me the opportunity to pick an item from their new collection, the first thing that sprang to mind was to find something perfectly pretty for party season, but that would allow me to stay warm and comfy too. Luckily, the Laciann playsuit* ticked all of those boxes for me!
This lovely lacy playsuit makes a perfect pick for party time; it’s dramatic and dressy, with its plunging neckline and open back, and I love the retro detailing of the high-cut shorts and bell sleeves. The applique lace details stop it becoming plain – who said black was boring?!
I paired this playsuit with my trusty 120 deniers – it’s the only way to go in winter – and my beloved velvet Mary-Janes, purchased last winter. The perfect vintage-inspired shoes to add a touch of retro glamour to this look! I carried on the retro glamour theme with my favourite leopard faux-fur coat, of course; this is winter dressing up, in any case. Finally, I slung a sleek black handbag over my shoulder, nothing too fussy as this playsuit really does all of the talking.
Paired with a volumised topknot and pared-back, 1960s makeup, I think this is a great party look this winter that ensures you’ll look stylish but will stay comfy all night long!
This playsuit was kindly sent to me by Luxemme, but all other items and all opinions are my own.
