Christmas and the festive season are fast approaching us, and it is time to get organised and prepare yourselves for this exciting and busy period.
One thing I just love about December (yes, the entire month) is the excitement in the air; all those parties and Christmas drinks with friends and colleagues and finding the perfect gifts for our beloved ones. You need to be very organised to both nail the latest trends by styling stunning looks for all of those Christmas parties, and at the same time, be on top of your Christmas gifting and Secret Santa presents.
Getting the perfect gift can sometimes be a bit overwhelming and tricky and it requires a lot of preparation. We ask mutual friends, family members and colleagues for gifting advice and recommendations. The truth is that we all want to satisfy and make our beloved merry during the festive season. We try to remember all of those conversations throughout the year to figure out the perfect Christmas present for them.
Some might consider Christmas and the festive season quite overbearing, simply because the pressure can be a bit too much from time to time. But the solution is here and it has a name, MYSTYLIST LONDON.

Just to make your Christmas a bit easier in regards to finding the right gift from our most curated fashion brands, I have created a gifting guide list. Furthermore, I will show how to style three different festive looks with the same blouse found at MYSTYLIST LONDON. Let´s first start with my three looks I styled with the Nereide Blouse from MYSTYLIST LONDON
For the first look, I styled the Nereide Blouse with a pair of flared flowing trousers in burgundy and classic black heels. Burgundy is such a gorgeous colour many of us associate with Christmas and the festive season. Also, burgundy is one of Autumn/ Winter 17 biggest colour trends. You might have noticed fashionistas and other fashion personnel raving about this stunning colour. A styling tip to wear the Nereide Blouse with a black pin skirt, skinny jeans or any other formal trousers you might have in your wardrobe. I just adore the classic silhouette and details with the Nereide Blouse and it’s so easy to style it with other items you might already have in your wardrobe.
For the second look, I styled the Nereide Blouse with trendy pleated velvet trousers in deep purple and a pair low heeled slingback pumps in red.Matching bold colours together has been on our fashion radar for a few seasons now and once again, brands such as Balenciaga and Prada are showcasing that they are still loving this bold and exciting trend.Accessories such as a belt, bag and shoes are a key element in styling and can be added to easily spice up an outfit. Furthermore, accessories are a very cost-effective styling trick we all should know as its just too good to avoid. It is almost like magic to see how accessories can transform an entire look.This look is the perfect party outfit for your Christmas parties, dinner or other social festive events. This statement look is effortlessly chic and elegant, the perfect day to night outfit.For the last look, I styled my Nereide Blouse with this season´s must-have trends – the Beret, bold colours, suit and velvet. I matched my Nereide Blouse from MYSTYLIST LONDON with a double – velvet breasted coat in blue, a pair of light blue jeans and suede Chelsea boots.Thanks to Maria Grazia Chiuri, Dior´s (first) new Creative Director, the French style is this season´s biggest trend – every girl from around the world is imitating the French look and tries to find key pieces that are significant in imitating this timeless style.Brands such as Marni and Ralph Lauren have chosen the suit jacket during their Autumn/ Winter 2017 collections. Celebrities such as Victoria Beckham and Olivia Palermo are a huge fan of this trend. The best thing with this trend is that many of us already have a suit or an A- line coat in our wardrobes. Furthermore, this trend matches beautifully with many of our wardrobe essentials and can be dressed up or down, according to the occasion. A Suit jacket or A-line coat is perfect to bring along to social events during this Christmas, wear it with pumps for parties or sneakers during your weekend activities.
Velvet is the fabric you should be wearing this season – this trend is loved by our favourite fashionistas and celebrities from Lady Gaga to Amy Adams who are rocking the velvet trend. For me, velvet will always have a luxurious presence and will always be my favourite fabric during winter times.
