It’s officially December and you know what that means, the holiday party season is here! To me, holiday sparkle will never go out of style, and I love the chance to dazzle from day to night on a regular basis, all in the name of holiday cheer and festive fun.

Since so many holiday parties take place during the week, and after work, one of my favourite ways dress up is to mix a sparkly statement piece with everyday basics.


For example, I styled Smart Set‘s black sequin jacket with their boyfriend jeans and elongated white button shirt to make it an easy look that could take me from the office to the party. It can be very easy to feel too ‘frou frou’ as soon as you’ve got sequins on, and that’s exactly why I love pairing them with laid-back pieces to create an easy and relaxed look that still lets you shine, and feel like you’re ready for the party.

What’s great about having this jacket is that its easy to wear, and to transform with different looks. Not to mention that its something that’s easy to throw in your bag and put on right before your event, without having to worry that it will wrinkle or crease while in your bag.
