Save, spend or splurge this season?

As Christmas draws near, what better to feast your eyes on than some wintery picks? Whether you’re looking for the perfect gift to give, present to scrawl down on this year’s list or a special number for the Christmas party – this season’s must-haves are ready for you whatever the budget.  This time, I’ve picked tux jackets, saddle bags and sparkly dresses!

Tux It Up

Tux-inspired jackets are the perfect party cover-up. Over the shoulders, over a dress or to add the finishing touch to a smart suit – this piece is the definition of wearable and will go a long way this winter and well into the new year. If you’re opting for a classic with a feminine twist, this Oasis Premium Tux Jacket at ASOS is the perfect investment and a sure-fire wardrobe staple, coming in at £58.50. For the brave, layer this unique halter neck Sleeveless Tux from Topshop over a ribbed long sleeve top, it will set you back £49.50. If you’re saving your pennies, this New Look Satin Lapel Blazer is reasonably priced at less than £25. Article_SaveSpendSplurge2

Shimmer & Shine

As Christmas brings the promise of sparkling fairy lights, tinsel and Quality Street wrappers, why shouldn’t we follow suit with some sparkly attire? Grab 15% off this beautiful Sunbeamer High Neck Dress from French Connection with your UNiDAYS® discount and shimmer from the Christmas meal all the way into the evening. A purse-friendly alternative comes in the form of Topshop's High-Neck Sequin Dress at £54. Or if you’ve been overly generous this Christmas, don’t worry, we have you covered. Snap up the ultimate bargain in the form of this flirty PrettyLittleThing Adelaide Cream Sequin Strappy Shift Dress – it’s only £24! Who’s to say you can’t wear it next year, too? We won’t tell!

Bag The Trend

Saddle bags were everywhere on the catwalks this season. When you’re all wrapped up in your winter warmers, the last thing you want is a big bag adding to the bulk. Am I right? Pop this Dune Evita Mini statement bag from House of Fraser on your wish list this year, priced at less than £57. For £26.10, you could afford to go girly with this vintage-inspired 70’s Accessorize Saddle Bag in nude. Last but not least, the ultimate £18 steal from Boohoo will compliment any outfit. This Willow Top Handle Saddle bag comes in three different colours and is the definition of day-to-night style. Article_SaveSpendSplurge3
