Holiday season is upon us, which calls for a touch of luxe. I’ve teamed together with Redrebs to show you how to style a cosy yet chic daytime look that’s perfect for a daytrip or outing with friends and family. Focusing on the luxury segment, Redrebs carries gorgeous plus size eveningwear with a distinctly festive touch. I’d styled this gorgeous lace LBD from them for an evening look a while back, today I’m dressing down the most lightweight and exquisite silk jacket to show you how eveningwear can be made to work for daytime as well!

I’ve kept the look simple in monochrome with classic pieces that I rotate regularly in my wardrobe. One of my tricks to wearing an outfit in a single colour is layering textures and shades. Although I’m predominantly wearing blue (with hints of black) for this look, I’ve picked out the individual pieces to range from royal blue to teal and navy. While single shade looks can be absolutely breathtaking in their drama, mixing shades and textures makes for a more wearable iteration on the theme! When it comes to style, I’ve always taken inspiration from the costumey and the theatrical - because after all, what’s fashion without a hint of the outrageous? I feel that today’s look in black and blue draws on a lot of those elements while remaining dapper and comfy enough to spend the whole day in. My Redrebs shrug is definitely today, and I’ve chosen the rest of the pieces to complement rather than overshadow it. It’s one of those classic fashion rules that don’t need to be followed, but it’s also one of my top tips for pulling together an outfit! So whether you’re looking to glam up or dress down this holiday season, have a look at Redrebs’ collection, they’ll have you sorted no matter your style!

Although Europe is one of the most modern places on earth, there are still communities here that keep their traditional celebrations. During these festivities, many people that normally dress modern, wear their traditional outfits, sometimes inherited from their ancestors.

What is interesting is that besides older generations, many young people attend this festivals and keep in touch with their traditions.

I visited such communities in Romania, Greece and a few days ago in Portugal.

Bizarre Victorian fact of the day...

The Christmas card went through several developments before it became the item we would recognise today. Christmas envelopes appeared first in 1840 and were decorated with seasonal scraps (illustrations printed specially for use in craft projects). Inside these envelopes people would enclose letters full of seasonal greetings to send to their friends and family. Christmas visiting cards arrived next and added a festive touch to the year-round society activity of morning calls. The first Christmas card was designed in 1843 and gained popularity as the century progressed because it offered a more colourful and much less stressful alternative to writing dozens of individual letters.
