Festive styling tips

With the season of merriment in full swing, it’s time to embrace a wardrobe that complements the holiday’s joys. Sinead has curated a list of top festive styling tips to help you create a capsule wardrobe that exudes confidence and radiance while taking the stress out of getting dressed for any occasion.

First and foremost, invest in one or two statement pieces that elevate and transform your basic capsule wardrobe into a party-ready outfit. Opt for a beautiful sequined shirt or our rhinestone Jenny wrap blouse. This key statement piece will elevate the existing pieces in your wardrobe and prevent you from panic-buying heaps of partywear that you will likely only wear once and will disregard come January. When shopping for a statement piece, Sinead recommends choosing separates as they can be worn in multiple ways throughout the season.

Map out an hour at home in your room and wardrobe to pre-plan a library of outfits. Take a mirror selfie in each look and save it to a folder on your phone. When things get really busy and you may feel time-poor and a little overwhelmed, you can always fall back on the pre-planned looks you have prepared. Ensure you complete each look fully with shoes and accessories you plan to wear. You can hang the outfits on a small rail ready to wear for extra convenience.

Next, look for versatile garments that can be easily dressed up or down. A simple luxurious black silk cami or satin skirt can be paired with different accessories to create a variety of outfits. They can be dressed up for Christmas parties or styled down with cozy knitwear for festive brunches or shopping trips.

Don’t be afraid to mix and match unexpected pieces and fabrics together. Pairing multiple textures like silk, cashmere, and even jersey all together can create a unique and elegant look.

Use statement jewelry and handbags as your festive BFF to add a touch of festive magic to your attire. Instead of feeling the pressure to buy a head-to-toe festive look, inject some sparkle through your accessories. Sinead’s favorites this season are Crystals and Co rhinestone bags and statement earrings.

Finally, the most crucial ingredient in your wardrobe is to feel comfortable and confident in your attire. So, have fun with your outfits and choose looks that you feel amazing in while radiating your inner brilliance this holiday season.

Play around with casual and dressy pieces all in one look to achieve that ever so luxury high-low mix. For example, pair our luxe Orla midi skirt in Khaki with our typically more casual lightweight 90% wool 10% cashmere Ailbhe jumper together, and add a heel and statement earring and bag for the perfectly effortlessly chic festive look.

    With these tips, you can create a festive capsule wardrobe that will make getting dressed for any holiday occasion a breeze. Remember to invest in a statement piece that will elevate your outfit, choose versatile pieces that can be dressed up or down, and don’t be afraid to mix and match unexpected items. With the addition of statement jewelry and handbags, your outfit will be complete. But above all, make sure you feel comfortable and confident in your attire, so you can truly enjoy the magic of the holiday season with your loved ones.


    Happy Christmas,
