Let's just agree - we all LOVE December! It is a month full of parties, gatherings, holidays and more! With occasions like Christmas and New Year that we wait for all year round - December is one to remember!
With a celebration or gathering almost everyday, how does one look dressed up, yet different? Keeping this thought in mind and trends that are most talked about now, I thought I put together 4 looks for the season
1. The Velvet Dress
I knew I had to have something velvet in my closet and preferably in a dark color. I didn't want a black, but a green like this, a ruby red or a navy was what I was looking for. I saw this dress on ASOS and I knew I was going to order it for three reasons - Velvet, Green and the Cape. Why the cape? because I knew it would cover my shoulders in a way that would be better looking for my body type!
I paired this dress sparkly boots only because I thought the dress is so plain it will not look too much. However, now that I see the pictures I am 50-50 about my outfit choice
So all over Instagram I was seeing everyone rocking the #PajamaTrend which is basically suits or coordinates which look like they are PJS because of their print or fit. Now I don't think I could pull this off only because it ends up looking like the Pajama Trend because of how loosely it falls on you i.e. better off for someone with a lean body. BUT this wouldn't stop me from going for the suit trend. I had been looking for a nice pair for a really long time and ideally did not want to order it online. I found a few good ones in H&M but the colors were too basic, almost office wear. And then I spotted this one on ASOS and fell in love instantly! I was a bit worried to be honest but I thought to myself till I won't try I won't know! The look definitely looks better off when I tie the knot of the coat rather than leaving it open
I tried this look with a pair of nude heels as well as my Adidas Superstars. It looked good with both except with the Superstars I had to fold the pants a little bit. I was totally trying to go for the whole Ranveer Singh look lol

3.OTK Boots look
So I bought my OTK boots almost 4 months ago but I never really was able to use them because DUH Dubai weather in September is far from being cold. So I waited and coincidentally found a dress that was the perfect length to match the boots. I bought this shimmery green dress from Koton in Dubai Mall. When I saw this dress I knew the boots would work.
It is very important that the dress is not too short and the gap is too much because then the boots can look very hooker-ish.
Since I have never worn Over-The-Knee boots, I carried an extra pair of heels for this look. I love the pop of color on these Nordstorm heels. Which look do you prefer?

4. The Concert Look
If you are living in the UAE, chances are you have heard about Coldplay coming to Dubai and 50% of the UAE is going for the concert. If you have been to any concert then you know how crowded it can be. I know it is ideal to be in short dresses and high heels for NYE but it is quite the opposite when it comes to concerts.
I put this look together thinking of just that - Comfort and Cold yet festive because its NYE. I paired this Club L sequin top that I got from ASOS a while ago with these white shorts from New Look and this suede jacket from Mango that I recently bought - I LOVE IT BTW!

BY THE WAY! How cute are these BALLOONS?
I ordered them all from www.balloonshop.ae only because of two reasons:
- They have a crazy variety of balloons for all occasions
- They deliver to WHEREVER you want them! So convenient right?
I have had so many times where I can barely see anything in the mirrors of my car because of traveling with them. This makes it so easy!!!
