Perfect Party Wear

I always make a big point of mentioning on any capsule wardrobe or outfit post that the strength in Kettlewell’s clothing is as the basis of a wardrobe, not its entirety – you need other pieces to add texture and interest alongside the colour that Kettlewell brings.

Well, ignore all of that. When it comes to party season 2016, Kettlewell is officially your one stop shop. The jersey party dresses are as flattering and forgiving as ever, I love this season’s foray into seasonally coded accessories, and Kettlewell have also thoughtfully introduced the ultimate elegant evening cover up. And if your Christmas party is more office lunch than cocktail party, there’s even a little something I can throw together for that. In fact, I reckon I can solve 99% of party outfit crisis points by using 99% Kettlewell products this season, which is rather pleasing (and makes life very simple). You may have to provide your own shoes though (although… watch this space in 2017 for exciting news on that front).
