Christmas Party Edit
So the first look that the lovely Naomi pulled was a beautiful burgundy fine knit jumper over a white shirt with detail on the collar. We like the sound of this already! Naomi paired this with a light a – line skirt. (A-line skirts are a great wardrobe staple! A must have if you ask us here at Kildare Village)
Naomi’s accessories of choice was a velvet burgundy over the shoulder bag and a pair of burgundy heels. Burgundy is a beautiful colour, with a festive feel.
Naomi explained that a-line skirts are a flattering choice of clothing as the skirt cinches at your waist! This is a great tip thanks to The Style Fairy, ‘the burgundy shade is a massive trend this winter season also’.
Naomi expressed that she loved this look due to it having a feminine, elegant feel. Which would be ideal for a Christmas soiree or a Christmas lunch in the city!
Naomi explained in her blog how she adored the jumper as she felt this is something she could use again and again, dressing it down wearing the jumper with a pair of jeans.

Naomi’s next look is full on glamour! Something we love for Christmas. Naomi is wearing a stunning jumpsuit, which can be a great alternative to a dress. ‘I really like the neutral colour palette on this one and the fit and cut was perfection on (Reiss are wonderful for good tailoring in jumpsuits like this)’ This jumpsuit is beautiful and very flattering and looks extremely comfortable.
Naomi styled the look with a cropped, embellished jacket which she draped over her shoulders. ’This jacket would be such a great wardrobe investment... Just look at the detail on the collar…’ we agree Naomi this jacket is a great addition to anyone’s wardrobe and could be worn for a number of occasions.

‘It fits like a glove, really cinches you at the waist; it’s an all-round stunning shape, style and cut. A really glamorous dress, I just felt so happy and comfortable in this as soon as I had it on. I love the metallic colours going through it. This has a total wow factor for me.’
