Party season is mid flow and you’re inundated with invitations to parties and xmas catch up drinks with old friends! If you’re lacking in inspiration for your festive looks this week – we’ve got you covered. Here at CFL, with the help of Barnardos fashion and Love Your Clothes London we’ve pulled together a xmas season look book to give you some pointers. No matter what the scenario, we’ve got the perfect look!

Meeting the girls for after work Xmas drinks?

Christmas is round the corner and we don’t know about you but we are ready to dial the Xmas vibes in the office right up. Why not try running a festive red theme through your look?

Creative layering will add depth to your geek chic ensemble and soften the bold red – we’ve plumped for a denim look sleeveless shirt with a J.W Anderson inspired flamboyant ruffle detail. We’ve finished this look off with these cute sling back Vivienne Westwood heels.

If bare legs are a stretch too far for you in this winter weather – just team this outfit with tights, socks or a cuffed hem bootleg jean for that woolly warmer finishing touch.

Heading for Christmassy cocktails?

If you’re more of a girly girl – we’ve got just the look for you. Team statement heels with a paired back pleated skirt and a simple knit in a candy colour.

Finish your look with accent details – a leopard print bag a jewel tone necklace and and a strong lip and you’re good go!

Need something cute and comfy for Christmas Day lunch?

For this one we’re taking style pointers from the likes of Miu Miu and Gucci for a bit of ‘granny goes wild’ style!

Our Model (Amy) Wears: Head to toe Barnardo’s, South woodford store 

This look is all about having the confidence to create eclectic combinations, to pair up the unexpected and to go wild with exciting colour and pattern style pairings. Of course socks or indeed tights and sandals are an absolute must to complete this look.

Boxing Day Lunch?

Need something relaxed but glam for boxing day lunch?

Pair a bright chunky knit with a mini skirt and a minimalist luxe fabric coat! Crisp, clean and sophisticated. No one will ever guess you were in a post turkey dinner slump but a few hours earlier…

We’re taking our cues from Loewe this time – with Kitty accessories and prints being all the rage for AW16. Who wouldn’t love to find this little clutch in their stocking on Christmas Day!?

We hope you’ve enjoyed part one of our festive look book? Keep a look out for the next instalment where we’ll be featuring ideas for your New Year Eve Party. As always all looks will be pulled together using nothing but pre loved clothing straight from the rails of the charity shop!
