Mixing and matching clothing this Christmas

There are some styles and items of clothing which never go out of style. The little black dress is one example, a good pair of jeans, classic white shirt, black high heels and smart trousers are a good few options.
These items can be mixed and matched for both professional or social occassions. Two other items of clothing which have stood the test of time and are making a huge comeback are the classic blazer and leggings. A blazer with leggings is one of this year's hottest looks and one that's great for the holidays.

The mighty blazer
Blazers still retain some of their original rustic character, and are available in a range of multi-hued tweeds - Ralph Lauren's range is a fine example of this. Blazers are now available in a wide choice of colours, fabric, fit and especially prints.

We love Leggings
No longer a staples garment for the gym - leggings really started to make an impact on the fashion scene in the 1960s and reached a height of popularity during the 1980s.
Fast forward to today, and leggings are no available in stretchy denim, plastic and leather. Check out the styles St. John has in stock for inspiration. They can be fashionably combined with long tops and even short or knee-length dresses but the most elegant combination had to be leggings and a blazer.

Day and night
It's not difficult to carry the leggings and blazer combination with a few tips. Heels work better than flats as they are leg-legntheing and complement most outfits.
By night, simply put on your most glam blazer and add some jewellery!
