Festive outfit planning can be tricky family gatherings, visiting friends and generally being out and about means we have to keep the styling practical. Outfits must be able to stretch with the wearer as canapes, turkey, puddings and cheeses are washed down with champagne, wine and port. The solution to this Christmas day dilemma for me is the jersey dress. Comfortable, chic and easy to style the LJD (little jersey dress) can be glamourised with accessories, hosiery and footwear. It is the fashionable alternative to stretchy trews it has just the right amount of slouch and practicality ensuring that we can indulge comfortably yet stylishly. There are so many to choose from in my favourite online haunts but I think they key when looking for the perfect LJD is to keep it plain and simple and let your accessories to the talking.
