Wear it out: Back to basics for Christmas

Simple, clean lines are the order of the day as Justine King creates a festive look

 

Justine King is our girl this week. One of Dublin’s top stylists, King is no stranger to fashion. With a ‘less is more’ approach she has nailed a killer look.

1. Trousers

Leather pants are a must for the upcoming Christmas season. They will become the base of all your looks as you run from pub to club, from office party to pints with friends back from Australia. There are many options out there for the shape and style so don’t worry you don’t have to plaster on a skin tight pair if that isn’t your thing. This pair from Zara are a cigarette pant style and a bargain at €39.95.

2. Blazer

These are no longer the stuffy uniform of the 9-5. The different shapes available mean we can all find a style that is flattering. They are the perfect way to begin your night looking like a lady! H&M €39.99.

3. Clutch 1

I have recently invested in a few clutch bags. Before now I have been a ‘one bag fits all’ kind of girl but I ended up carrying my whole life around with me every weekend. Clutch bags are great for making sure you only take the essentials when you go out. There are a lot of styles available, but if you opt for something simple it will go with everything. Asos €35.55.

4. Clutch 2

Om Diva on Drury St is a beautiful little boutique that specialises in Irish design and vintage pieces. It’s also a great place to pick up that special outfit that no one else will have. They have you covered for all that bit of bling needed for the weekend too, such as this beautiful vintage Christian Dior clutch for €75.

5. Earrings 

Irish jewellery designers are really making a name for themselves and Kayleigh Forsythe is at the top of this game. Kayleigh’s brand knits geological beauty with a distinct skilful delicacy. Check out her website www.kayleighforsythe.com for a list of stockists around the country. These Isis earrings are €65.
