TOPSHOP's Little Black Delights...

It's that time of season! And what is more classic and chic than a Little Black Dress? Well here's how to mix it up a bit this Christmas and New Year.
Topshop have a mountain of delicious goodies at the moment and although their prices seem to be ever growing, we all deserve a little treat on occasion! 
These items can all work as separate pieces, meaning you can pair a very expensive black silk dress (£95.00) with cheaper alternatives, just a pair of black tights and simple platforms - all the attention will be on the dress anyway! 
These fabrics demand attention so if you want to try something different this year but still be safe in the knowledge that EVERYONE looks good in black then why not pick leather look leggings, to be worn with an oversized blouse? Or a sheer silk shirt with skinny jeans and heels for a more relaxed look?
I have already found my New Years Eve dress, (unfortunately I couldn't find an image online) its a faux leather and mesh mini from H&M that is made with the most beautiful fabric, so it feels comfortable and soft. The leather is also a lovely matte texture and very subtle so no creaking around in PVC all night! I'd really like these patent loafers from Topshop to wear along with it. 
But my tip is, do not go all out with the leather trend. Choose one piece and have the rest of your outfit in a simpler fabric.  
And silk blouses (whether real or not) are always pure luxury. I will be certainly building my collection of silk items - I am even awaiting two silk and jersey mix shirts from H&M as I type!
What will you guys be wearing this Christmas / New Years Eve?
