I always want to try something different and steer away from the little black dress once the Christmas parties start, but for some reason I always end up in one. It’s just what I feel comfortable in. They are always chic, always classy and can be dresssed up or down perfectly. I find with a mini style a flat shoe looks perfect, whilst some of the velvet heels this season are beautiful. In fact velvet this season full stop is magnificent. For me, maybe it’s my age, I love a sleeve and I like a loose fit, I can enjoy one too many mince pies without it showing. Below are my carefully selected favourites. Some of them are included in Cyber Monday.
