Christmas Gift Guide: Statement Clothing

Now whether it's a gift to you for the Christmas party season or you're looking for inspiration for your mum/sister/BFF there's so pretty nice statement pieces out there this season, and with some great Black Friday discounts floating around (see my last post) you could get a whole new outfit without the post shopping regrets!

1. PVC Full Midi Skirt - Missguided £19.99 
PVC seems to be the hot texture this season, spicing up any outfit. As seen here it can look great with an oversized fluffy jumper to make it less stripper chic and more fashion darling and at this price you can't go wrong.

2. Joie De Vivre Jumper - Whistles £75.00
Slogan jumpers are everywhere at the moment, but I find it really hard to find one that's not a little bit lame (I mean those Geek jumpers were fine until the entire under 18 population started wearing them) and I think this is the perfect jumper for a cool look, maybe even layered on top of the PVC skirt above.

3. Leather Joggers - Topshop £150.00
I have been desperate for a pair of cool baggy leather trousers for so long now, as they are a real investment piece and look amazing when worn with a baggy tee and some barely there heels, great for looking effortlessly cool down the pub on Christmas Eve. There's also the faux leather version for those on a budget!

4. Selected Valerie Angora Jumper - ASOS £55.00
Never has there been a better (or more on fashaaaan) time to embrace your inner girly girl and go all out in pink, everybody has seen the coverage THAT pink coat has gotten this year, but if you don't fancy making that much of a commitment this fluffy pink number is a great nod to the trend whilst staying cosy too.

5. Chunky Cut Out Boots - £45.00 River Island 
This boot style has been the standout shape for this year, teamed with a girly skater skirt and pink angora knit they will toughen it right up and add an edge to any outfit. Plus you can't go wrong at this price for a great pair of stand out boots!

6. High Waist Tartan Trousers - ASOS £40.00
When I wore mega flare trousers with a slit to the knee at 14 (come on it was the early noughties it was cool then) never did I think tartan would make a comeback, but it has. There are some great tartan trousers around, but these are a perfect going out for a family meal on boxing day look.

7. Top & Trouser CO-ORD - Miss Selfridge £45.00 (currently £36.00) & £49.99 (currently £34.30)
A matching two piece has been the must have for a while now and you get a number of outfits from it so it's a perfect investment, especially with the current Black Friday deals. A great Christmas Day outfit jazzed up with some fab platforms or dressed down with some chelsea boots.

8. Oversized Coat - Zara £179.00
This season it is all about the coat, investing in good quality and classic style is a sure fire way to make sure your coat will last you a good few years, so it's sometimes worth spending that little bit more to ensure it actually sees you through at least one winter. This oversized style is so amazing for day and night and makes looking cool easy. Oh Zara we love you so.

9. Sequin T-Shirt Dress - Motel £50.00
Christmas is pretty much a free pass to wear as many sequins as possible throughout the whole of December and this dress is a less fancy, OTT way to wear sequins with it's slouchy fit and shimmery colour that ripples in different lights.

10. Reindeer Slippers - John Lewis £16.00
Just because we all know that on Christmas Day these are all we'll really be wearing on our feet!

Hope you've found some inspiration on here, I know that most of these are a little out of price range for a stocking filler but you deserve a gift too this Christmas! (Plus directing your man this way couldn't hurt could it?)
