MaxMara Arno Black Satin and Jersey Dress, Anya Hindmarch Tinsel Carker Clutch and By Malene Birger Leopard Jewelled Shoes

MaxMara Arno Black Satin and Jersey Dress MaxMara Arno Black Satin and Jersey Dress

This look is predominantly evening wear, although the dress could be transitional. It’s an understated look with key festive details making it ideal for the office party or Christmas meal.

MaxMara Arno Black Satin and Jersey Dress

This MaxMara Arno dress cleverly uses two differently textured fabrics to create a 3D, slightly opulent effect. The main part of the dress is made from a black jersey fabric, yet the central panel down the back and the front of the dress is made from ruched satin.

The dress features long sleeves and has a vent at the back for ease of movement. The waist belt is detachable and the dress is partly lined and fastens with a hidden back zip.

Anya Hindmarch Tinsel Carker Clutch

I love this new season clutch from Anya Hindmarch. Clearly intended to be carried at Christmas parties and other seasonal occasions, this clutch is covered in tinsel and baubles – they are actually metal bells!

The black version is featured on the right, which is my choice to go with the dress and shoes, but it is also available in silver. The clutch has a gold chain handle inlaid with leather so it can be carried as a wristlet. Inside, it’s lined in leather and features zipped pockets and credit card slots to keep your valuables secure.

The bag features the iconic Anya Hindmarch Carker lock on the front, so everyone will recognise your bag’s designer credentials.

By Malene Birger Galante Leopard Jewelled Shoes

Don’t you think that the ubiquitous plain black courts can sometimes be just that? A little too plain? Well don’t worry, because By Malene Birger have come to the rescue with their snazzy, jewel embellished, monochrome leopard print courts.

These shoes have a classic shape, yet the leopard design and crystal embellishment really set them apart from the rest, and they add to life to any plain black outfit. In combination with the clutch above, they let the world know that it’s party time!
