The one good thing about being self employed and working from home is that I don't have to spend copious amounts of cash on an outfit for a works Christmas party. Those days are long gone and used to cost an arm and a leg, usually in Karen Millen, but with my December birthday fast approaching and a few nights out planned with girlfriends, at this time of year the usual local restaurant attire has to crank itself up a notch as everybody else will be pulling out all the stops with sparkly attire and wearing a sequin or two when out with their colleagues. So in my quest to not be underdressed this season, but without wanting nor having budgeted for a party frock, the easiest way to dress up my usual jeans, heels, top, evening out combo, will be to sling on a sequin jacket.
Sequin jackets are a worthwhile investment whatever your budget and make an appearance every year from both high street and designer brands, and are not to be worn purely for the festive season nor purely over jeans and a t-shirt as they can work over a plain shift dress or cigarette pants just as easily and are perfect for Christmas or Boxing day if you are going out or entertaining at home, just take your apron off and slip one on as you leave the kitchen!

Is there a sequin jacket in your wardrobe just waiting to come out and play at Christmas? Do you prefer a classic blazer style or a more relaxed draped front jacket?
