If you can never choose between a traditional or glittering Winter wardrobe, we’ve picked our favourite hybrid pieces for the best of both worlds.
To sparkle or not to sparkle is a question we ask ourselves when it comes to our festive wardrobes. Here at The White Company, we like the best of both worlds – mixing up our Winter look with shimmering details and something a little more traditional.
From heritage Fairisle knits, lifted with a smattering of crystals, to sequin-adorned dresses and truly traditional LBDs, we’ve picked our favourite day-to-night pieces for the season.
For a sprinkling of sparkle…
Nothing quite says ‘festive’ like a wardrobe with a touch of shimmer, so we’ve given these knits a high-end spin with sequins and beads. The embellishments mean they won’t look out of place with black skinny jeans or a leather skirt for evening, either.
Our Sequin Detail Knitted Dress is a great option for festive parties if you don’t want to go all-out glam. Made from pure merino wool it will keep you comfortable throughout the evening, and you can easily wear it during the day if you’ve got a busy schedule. The scattered sequins on the sleeves create a subtle festive shimmer when it catches the light.

For a touch of the traditional…
We’ve always believed that simple designs executed well are the best investments. Our snuggly knits, in sumptuous pure yarns and soft blends, will cocoon you with cosiness on the coldest of days. And what could possibly look and feel more traditional at Christmas than a seriously cosy jumper?
You can never go wrong with an LBD – and we believe you can never have too many. A classic eveningwear staple that has truly stood the test of time, opt for these two flattering styles for the festive season, and up the ante with sparkling jewellery. We love to update a dress with a change of accessories or a cropped cardigan to give it a refresh at different events.
