Now we’re into November, we bet that invites to festive soirees have already started flooding your emails/Facebook/letterbox and you’re looking for something brand spanking new and shiny to wear? Well, we’ve just found it.
Say hello to the latest instalment from ASOS’ premium Black line, and prepare to want every single piece. Where the label’s Salon collection is the go-to for all things girlie and White is their take on catwalk-inspired minimalism, Black is your destination for all-out opulence with a cool twist. Don’t worry though, as while there’s all the glitz and sparkle you’d expect from any party collection worth it’s salt, what sets Black apart is the bold silhouettes, cuts and fabrics that make the pieces look less ‘fairy on top of the Christmas’ tree, more directional designer. We’re talking about that voluminous two-tone midi and jumbo gem studded funnel neck dress – trust us, you normally only see this kind of jewel action on the catwalk.
Bombers make for offbeat evening cover-ups, sweatshirts replace the usual strappy cami’s and funnel necks, while Peter Pan collars and powder pink totally nod to the ‘60s trend. Oh, and did we mention there are shoes too? Yup, check out those gorgeous brocade courts (snap them up in silver too) and the offbeat lace up brocade block heels rocked by the model. See, ASOS know it’s all about nodding to your individual style when it comes to nailing a killer party look.
So, if you want a party season buy that’ll have everyone asking ‘where did you get that?’, ASOS have got it covered. Now we just need a party to go to every night so we can rock it all…
