Something for the weekend

19 December 2013

This weekend is your last chance to nab those Christmas eve party dresses and 'presents for yourself'. Check out this week's 10 fabulous pieces.

Whilst the shops are going to be disgustingly hideously busy this weekend, many of the online retailers will still honour next day delivery if you're very quick about placing your order. And let's face it, if you know you've got a show-stopping dress under the tree next week then it doesn't matter if your nan bought you socks. Again.

1. Mesh Panel Maxi by Rare - £42

Cover up without covering up.

Buy it here.

2. Statement Necklace by Miss Selfridge - £7 (reduced from £14)

Miss Selfridge is one of the few retailers that have already gone into crazy sale mode, with 50% off lots of stock already. Forget waiting til Boxing Day and snap up this necklace now.

Buy it here.

3. Geometric Dress by Camilla and Mark - £294 (reduced from £589)

Christmas bonus burning a hole in your pocket? This stunning dress is half price and the angular styling is mega flattering. You know you'll wear it come the summer months too.

Buy it here.

4. Asymmetric Skirt by Jovonnista - £50

Sticking with the asymmetric theme for a sec, this style of skirt is how we'd sum up 2013 in one garment. That doesn't mean you won't be wearing it next year, we've embraced this cut and it's definitely here to stay.

Buy it here.

5. Heels by Zara - £49.99

Are they court shoes? Are they cut out ankle boots? Are they fiercer than a fierce thing? YES. Yes to all three.

Buy them here.

6. Slinky Midi by Topshop - £45

Let me stress for a moment how special this dress looks on. It's slinky, it has an open back and it's - importantly - just a little bit different. Think Issa, think 80s, think Abigail's Party, think 'What Would Mrs Scarface Do?".

Buy it here.

7. Fluffy Waistcoat by H&M - £29.99

You don't always need a jacket, a longline waistcoat goes a long way in keeping you warm. This fluffy number can be thrown over most outfits. Grungey death stares and hood optional.

Buy it here.

8. Metallic Boots by Zara - £79.99

This is ground control to Major Tom.

Buy them here.

9. Cigarette Dress by House of Holland - £350 (reduced from £500)

Who says you can't smoke in bars?

Buy it here.

10. High Neck Dress by Miss Selfridge - £55

You can't go wrong with a silver jacquard dress at Christmas. The high neck, keyhole back and flared skirt makes this one a winner.

Buy it here.
