We're a few days shy of the delightful month that is December, where Summer arrives, the Christmas countdown can really begin (hello advent calendars) and our diaries start to fill up with RSVPs to all of the parties and celebrations with our nearest and dearest.
This festive time of the year is always a favourite, with the fashion side being one reason of course! As this is when the soft floaty dresses, crisp whites, statement sleeves, ruffles and colourful prints all come out to play.
The celebration season can inspire us to be more playful with our wardrobes and look at things with fresh eyes, making it the perfect time to step out of your comfort zone and experiment with a bold colour, a sparkly touch or embrace a puff-sleeve.
BASSIKE top, JAC+ JACK skirt, AJE Bag
The Aje Mimosa Cutout Dress has a little touch of all three and this is one of their stand-out dresses of the season (or even the year!). The gathered waist, on trend gumnut colour and balloon sleeves are what give it that ultimate wow factor with an effortless feel. This is the kind of dress you can wear with a beautiful pair of heels to an end-of-year long lunch, with sandals to a garden soirée or with a pair of sneakers to a family lunch. It's the dress that keeps on giving and that gets better with every wear.

Another style that screams Summer for me is the classic off-the-shoulder top, which Scanlan Theodore have created in this vacation-inspired print. The tropical print paired back with a linen wrap skirt or a pair of high-waisted cotton pants on Christmas Day is a definite winner in my eyes.
SCANLAN THEODORE top and pant, MANNING CARTELL shoe
If you're looking to update your shoe collection, these Manning Cartell Candy Crush Mules will add a beautiful touch to your look! They tick all the right party boxes - 90s feels, a pop of pink and are a comfortable silhouette to wear. A mule is a great style if you plan on dancing the night away on New Year’s Eve!

The final touches are key when it comes to the festive season and a little can go along way when you find the right pieces. Aje have just launched their new Jewellery collection and this grand chain choker is at the top of my wish-list. For an extra touch of glam, this Scanlan and Theodore belt will definitely do the trick. The rhinestone detailing is an absolute dream and is one of those special pieces you'll want to wear forever.
