When it comes to glamorous occasion dressing, Phase Eight can always be relied upon. And now, Sister brand Studio 8 is also continuing the good work, with beautiful pieces that go up to size 24. With Christmas less than 40 days away, this post is dedicated to pieces that can be worn over the Christmas period, from Christmas day celebrations, to partying the night away on New Year’s Eve.
But this post does come with a difference. Regular readers of this blog will know that I am obsessed with dresses, and that when it comes to evening wear, I always step towards the dress rail. This post, however, does not contain a single dress. There are beautiful skirts that can be teamed with sparkly tops of soft knit jumpers, tops of the sheer, glittering and fringed kind, and faux fur jackets that you can wear just about everywhere.
And then there are jumpsuits. It seems hard now to remember when these items were just bad fashion relics from Sheena Easton, Kelly Marie and the year 1980. These days you be hard pushed to find a party where at least three women aren’t wearing one. I get this totally, they’re comfortable, sexier than a maxi skirt and yet cover the legs for those who hate this part of their body. Going to the toilet is still a hassle, but it’s a small part to play, especially when the jumpsuits are as amazing as Studio 8’s Helen design.
