christmas outfits
This year, I have had a number of friends come to me for advice on festive style etiquette and general ‘what to wear’ consultation for the Christmas period. Unlike the uniform of party sparkles and ugly Christmas jumpers, Christmas Day is a chic free-for-all.

Using Lyst (one of my favourite discovery tools and ways to outfit plan), I have put three unique Christmas Day looks together to inspire you; an alternative take on candy cane cuteness, gold-wrapped presents, and Winter-hued casualwear.

Outfit One:
Maroon and white Raglan Stripe Dress from House of Holland
White Rockstud ballerina flats from Valentino

Outfit Two:
Black Silk Shirt With ‘dash-stripe’ Cuff Linings from Paul Smith
Gold Wrapped Bow Cotton Lamé Flare Skirt from Lanvin
Black Blade heels from Casadei

Outfit Three:
Blue Crewneck from Emporio Armani
Blue ‘the Fling’ Distressed cropped jeans from Current/Elliott
Christine 125 Swimming Pool Blue Suede Platform Sandal from Charlotte Olympia
Blue ‘radiant’ Ombré Pavé Pendant Chain Necklace from Lulu Frost

I’ve got one for you, fellow inspiration gatherers!

Over the past year or so, I have found it increasingly difficult to shop online. It’s not that I am not finding what I’m looking for, I simply have no idea what I’m looking for. With my daily life so entwined with fashion and stylish women, my internal running wish lists are a recipe for sartorial chaos.

When I partnered up with Lyst, I realised a better listing system was the answer.

Essentially, Lyst is a shoppable list-making platform filled with every item from every online retailer you could possibly wan to shop from. Powered by preferences you identify when you sign up, the homepage gives you a to-the-minute inventory update across a multitude of retailers, though you can search for very specific items and designers, as well.

My personal Lysts are filled with statement skirts (obviously) and a very girly Summer wishlist of gradual finds which has made it very clear to me I have an obsession with abundant straps.

Do you use anything in particular to track your wish lists? If not, have a play and report back!
