FESTIVE FASHION

Poor old Colin Firth. I wonder if he realised when accepting the role of Mr. Darcy in Bridget Jones' Diary that he was destined to become the poster boy for the novelty Christmas jumper? I've noticed that the film still of Firth in the infamous, hideous reindeer-motif knit is dug out each December to illustrate newspaper and magazine features on the pitfalls of festive fashion.


Unlike Mr. Darcy, it is possible to add a festive feel to your wardrobe without sacrificing your style credentials. The key to the look is opulent fabrics; tactile velvet, rich brocade and shimmering metallics all have the celebratory air that Christmas demands. I've put together some outfits below that I think would be perfect for the upcoming festive period, and not a reindeer jumper in sight...
