As student loans dwindle, the entire campus is asking itself; how can we afford Christmas this year? Homemade presents aside, there is a certain dress code one must observe during the festive season. When the festive season arrives, the sheer number of sequins on display can become overwhelming. Gunmetal metallics shine at us from inside shop windows and it’s hard not to get swept up in a sea of sparkles. However, don’t be tempted to confuse party clothing with tinsel; a transformation into a Christmas tree is not so chic.

Opt for an understated monochrome palette, then vamp things up by blending textures, bold cuts and metallic details. Ethnic chokers are the ideal way to style a quirky twist into a classic velvet number or revive boxy tees with marble swirls. We have compiled the ultimate Christmas capsule wardrobe; delightfully affordable and interchangeable depending on the occasion. With luxe materials and just the right amount of sparkle, mix and match the items for work dos, mince pies and mulled wine evenings, or the main event itself: New Year’s Eve!
