For those followers or readers who are unfamilar with my Style Dispensary sessions its where I trouble shoot My Passport to Style followers questions on Style and offer them expert Style Advice!
This post combines my two passions quirky clothing well cut, with helping women put together a look that fits their brief and leaves them feeling super stylish and beautiful. Todays Style Dispensary has a Christmas party theme and features clothes from Urban Outfitters, which recently launched its latest store in Edinburgh and a Style dilemma emailed to me from a one of my lovely followers on twitter, Nadia.
Nadia writes-Dear Sharon , I have always had a boyish figure no boobs, waist and stick thin legs and was a bit of a tomboy at school.I'm 26 and have my first christmas party coming up in my new job and as usual am dreading dressing up for a special occassion!I want to look feminine without looking fussy and don't want to get my legs out! Please can you suggest an alternative party look. Nadia x
Hi Nadia, great question! I think I have just the thing, Urban outfitters have just launched their new store in Edinburgh and do some great alternative, but dressy pieces. The Christmas Party look I have styled for you, is such fun, it's lady- like chic, but instead of a pencil skirt (I know you want to keep your legs under wraps)
The beautiful draping and fluidity of these pants from Urban Outfitters, will soften any hard angles and create sweeping curves, the lace up front gives them a really dressy feel.The clothing and accessories chosen to go with your pants are ladylike but with a young edge. This beautifuly tailored berry leopard cardigan with it buisy print will distract the eye, again a great trick for smaller women and the Viviene Westwood grey snakeskin brogues will ensure you maintain your ladylike wiles.Perfect worn with this fabulous black vintage inspired handbag.Or if your feeling a bit more daring wear the gold lady bug belt high on the waist over your cardigan and carry the gold and black striped clutch! All Urban outfitters. Hope you like your new look Nadia, have fun at your party!!! Sharon x
