Is this outfit just too boring..

..for a Xmas party? Basically black skinny jeans, a white silk blouse and heels.

The 'theme' is black and white (my company always insists on theming their Xmas parties..thankfully it's not full on fancy dress this year).

I could jazz it up a bit with some sparkle jewelry maybe? And I thought about getting some kind of sparkly flower to put in my hair.

I don't really want to spend money on a dress, and actually I'd rather be comfortable-ish.

Please be kind!

You look fab to me, the shoes are gorgeous. fsmile

Little bit of jewellry and maybe a nice clutch / purse?

Look great. Add some sparkle in your hair, why not?

No, I'd wear it with this necklacehttp://www.next.co.uk/g41236s6#400318 and theres a matching bracelet too if you wanted it. I wouldn't put a flower in your hair when there's one on your shoes.

I really like the blouse, and the whole outfit looks really good. If it were me I would have a big clutch bag and go understated with your jewellery.

oh thank you seeyou smile

Me and my stupid self doubts!

Sorry I'd probably wear black heels, stilettos or spaghetti strap high sandals too just to make it more glam.

Thanks everyone. I think a clutch bag and some sparkle is a good call.

The flower in the hair idea may be too much, thanks. It always helps to get some fresh opinions. OH just tells me everything looks 'nice' which doesn't help much!

I think the jeans and top look lovely. Would prefer high black shoes. Big silver cuff.

Hmm. No, not a flower! Yes to a lovely clutch bag - a pop of colour maybe? Dangly earrings always look good and yes to a necklace because the front is a bit too plain otherwise.

Really great outfit

I like the outfit and it's definitely something I would prefer to wear. However, I'd go for something like

this jewellery

I really think you look lovely. I dont like the shoes and agree. Black heels would be better.

OhYeahMama Thu 03-Dec-15 18:47:34

Lovely - I would add long some beads in different lengths, 20's style to match the drop waisted top, and higher black heels if your feet can handle it!

I wouldn't do a necklace because the top is pretty enough already. Either a cuff or dangly earrings would be lovely.

Top and jeans are lovely. You look really tall, slim and classy.

The shoes are a bit dootsie. Plus the light coloured shoes with black jeans breaks up the line of your leg.

I would go with other posters suggestion of black heels.

Thanks for all the advice ladies.

I shall maybe have to invest in some black heels as I don't currently have any!

Seeyounearertime Thu 03-Dec-15 19:41:38

I still like the shoes.... smile

i like the shoes but they are a bit 'daytime' for an xmas party

black strappy heels would look fab though

very chic outfit OP

DavetheCat2001 Thu 03-Dec-15 19:57:04

I like the shoes too wink

I can see that black may work better though.

There's nothing 'wrong' with the shoes - they just look a bit daytime/cutesy/summery.

Looks good to me!

Where's the blouse from? It's lovely.

DavetheCat2001 Thu 03-Dec-15 21:55:28

It's from Mint Velvet, but I bought it on eBay for £15 which I thought was a bit of a bargain!
