PARTY PERFECT November 27 2015

TEE INK DESIGNER SINEAD JAMES TALKS US THROUGH THE HOTTEST TRENDS FOR THE FESTIVE SEASON. 

Describe the perfect party outfit in three words...

Polished. Timeless. Fun.

What will you be wearing to the Tee Ink Christmas shin-dig this year?

I’m a spur-of-the-moment dresser but the Mono Palms Maxi Dress from our current season with black lace up block heels and some messy beach waves is sounding good to me. 

Tips for date-night dressing?

Comfort is key! Feeling good in what you are wearing will bring out your confidence. I’m a strong advocate of allowing your location to help guide your look. What you wear should be reflective of your environment and personality.

For a dinner date:

I would pair skinny jeans with a shirt or top, blazer and heels. If it is a little more fancy, a below the knee dress or midi skirt should do the job.

For a casual date:

Boyfriend jeans paired with a tee, flats or wedges is a perfect combination.

Be confident and be yourself. That is what makes a great first impression and ensures a second date!

Hottest party trends for the girls?

  • Polished separates
  • Rock ‘n Roll staples
  • Printed shorts
  • ‘70s inspired fashion
  • Fringing
  • Light weight Denim
  • Anything orange

And the guys?

  • Plain t-shirts with jeans and leather shoes
  • Strong tailoring
  • Beach party vibes – think bright hues
  • Linen shirts and shorts
  • White everything

Your ultimate festive-season pick from the Wear The Weekend collection?

It would have to be the Palm Beach Maxi Skirt. This bright and playful maxi is the perfect staple to take your outfit from beach to bar. It can be paired with basic t-shirts and singlets or dressed up with a silky cami or a long sleeve crop.
