All I want for Christmas is… a pair of velvet slippers to dance in

All I want for Christmas is… a pair of velvet slippers to dance in

I’ve spent this year either shuffling around in Birkenstocks or stomping about in hiking boots, it’s time for a touch of elegance. When it comes to partywear without the performance, you can’t beat a velvet tuxedo jacket over a dress shirt and old Levi’s 501s. Introduce a pair of beautiful velvet slippers ( borrowed for the shoot  from Le Monde Beryl) to pull the look together in a ‘Noel Coward at Noel’ kind of way.

STYLE NOTES: the velvet tuxedo was from Jigsaw three years ago, similar HERE and Hobbs, Whistles and NRBY all have velvet jackets this season.  The dress shirt was from my John Lewis collaboration in summer and is no longer available (similar HERE). The vintage Levi’s 501s were uncovered in a second-hand shop, ages ago. And sparkly earrings were from a Lulu Frost x J. Crew collaboration – if you’re looking for cheap and cheerful statement styles try Mango and Bauble Bar.
