STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Be-Jewelled for Christmas

Purple reigns for this week’s Fashionista, brightening up the weary weather on a cold winter afternoon. She follows one of the top trends for this A/W as jewel colour blocking continues to conquer. With neon statement pieces from Christopher Kane and Céline, and not mention the many celebrities "rocking" the jewelled look and injecting colour to the red carpet; semi-precious shades are clearly all the range. So pick a colour, any colour. Whether it is a sapphire party frock or an emerald clutch, this week’s advice is to make a statement. It won’t go unnoticed? The latest red or dead advertisement gives us some inspiration if deciding which colour to opt for — if you can’t find this page in a magazine, then peer into a box of roses!

This Fashionista's dress from Whistles stands out from the rest, brightening up the rest of her outfit and the street! Its tulip shape with oversized pockets has been a hit this season — flattering most figures and creating a sensual silhouette. The rich colour immediately catches your eye and is a must-have for your wardrobe, this Fashionista thinks so, owning the same dress in several sassy shades! If you are unsure, but want to try out a jewel gem, then why not pick out one piece of an outfit and give it a splash of colour? A tulip skirt or some neon shorts to add that extra sparkle to your ensemble would be extra chic.

Like our Christmas trees, you should of course decorate yourself this season with festive jewels. This week’s Fashionista has layered up her dress and chosen to cosy on down with a gorgeous and luxurious snood from Aubin and Wills. This was an expensive purchase but oh so worth it. Patterned in fair isle’s finest. She refuses to let the nippy weather get her down — and you shouldn’t either, so dress your neck with a similar winter woolie! If you are in the mood for a snood like this, then head to Urban Outfitters. If they don’t take your fancy then you will be spoilt for choice on ASOS. A personal favourite of mine which ticks the boxes of cosy AND cool (I own in two colours) are from Zara and French Connection. This Fashionista's accessories are also on-trend, as she works a tan glove and her handbag candy is a gorgeous Mulberry.

Her dazzling dressy outfit is complete with a simple LBC (little black cardigan) and her prized Helen Bateman black bootie beauties! Kate Middleton has also been spotted in the same pair, so if you are willing to splurge, then invest in the best. This fabulous footwear smartens up her overall look, but if wanting to dress your outfit down, her jewelled dress could easily be worn with little ankle boots or brogues.
