How to still dress alternatively for the festive season

Even though I’m the biggest Scrooge ever, I do hold a special place in my heart for festive fashion. I love the sequins, I love the glitter and I love the velvet. I’m an absolute sucker for party season and I love nothing more than putting together various outfits for nights out, xmas work dos and general festive fun. It’s the only part of the festive season I enjoy. Well, that and hanging out with the Marshalls. Gaynor does a banging veggie xmas dinner - I’ve got my baggy pants at the ready.

Sometimes it’s hard to keep your alternative style when shopping on the high street. However, I like the challenge of finding something “ordinary” and giving it that alternative edge I love, meaning I never have restrictions on where I shop (not shopping in a certain store because it’s not “alt” enough for example). Some of my favourite places to shop are on the high street - Zara, Pull & Bear and H&M to name a few. It’s all about how you style them up!

Which brings me to this velvet tassel dress I recently got sent from LOTD. When I picked it out it was already giving me all those grunge vibes with the velvet and contrasting orange tassels and by teaming it with something as simple as my creepers from TUK and throwing a pair of fishnets into the mix, it just strengthened that alt-feel I was going for.

Honestly, I adore this dress, it’s taken pride of place in my winter wardrobe. It’s uber-flattering, clinging just to the right bits and actually long enough to cover my butt which is always a happy bonus!

I’m really digging the mini funnel neck too. Usually, I hate this sort of style as I hate having anything too right around my neck but this doesn’t make me feel like I’m being slowly strangled to death.
