Party season is already here! Goodness, time flies...

I don’t think I’ve had as many ‘I got a closet full of clothes but nothing to wear’ moments as I have this month…

…boy it’s bad. This year, I’ve decided to be a bit more ahead of myself and do some party shopping (how fun though, seriously?!) and so went through the internet. The results: a not too sad bank account (gotta love all the affordable gorgeous pieces out there), a very happy closet, and this list of 5 party trends you can have in mind when shopping for the holidays this season.

Also, I got a question that I’d love for you to answer in the comment section below: What is your absolute favourite party song(s) this year? Please share so we can all make the best playlist of 2015 for New Year’s Eve!! I think I gotta admit Hotline Bling got me dancing a lot but also excited about Missy Elliott’s new single (and video!) WTF! Ok your turn!! ♥

Moving on: All you need to know before shopping for the fun times December has to offer: 

1. Velvet

When I think of the velvet trend, the first thing that comes to mind is a pair of Dolce & Gabbana velvet slingbacks I’ve been craving forever now. Gorgeous! Also, red velvet Chanel bags, blue velvet suits, and green velvet dresses is what you’ll see everywhere.

Anywho, velvet is really on the radar again and here are a few goodies I picked for you:



2. Statement Earrings

This one is still going strong. Statement earrings just really have the most glamorous effect and I have lost count on how many of these I own. What about you? Did you try it yet? Trust me, it’s one of the best conversation starters at any party! The size doesn’t matter too much, as long as they really stand out.




3. Flared Arm Sleeves

Also known as trumpet arm sleeves – this trend has been growing a lot lately. Probably as a result of the 70’s bonanza we’ve had going on for the past year or two. Over the summer, it was all bohemian and now this style appears in all kinds of party pieces. I personally LOVE this trend. It’s very party appropriate!

4. Lace Up Details

..on all kinds of clothes and accessories really! Lace up shoes are really high up on the haute list right now and we just can’t get enough of it. Also this detail looks gorgeous when it appears on dresses and tops. Take a look:




5. Cut Outs

We’ve seen the cutouts as holes on different kinds of clothing in the past year but what’s new is that these holes are now covered with transparent fabrics such as organza and tulle. Such as in the outfit I’m wearing on the photo in the cab (I was on my way to the Guldknappen 2015 gala hosted by Damernas Värld here in Stockholm). Wanna wear it again for NYE!
