As the festive season draws close, the inevitable burst of invitations can only mean one thing — dress codes that entail cocktail garb.

After all, it is my birthday month, and since I’m not making my escape and heading off somewhere exotic for a holiday, I can at least dress the part. Surely, an extended evening with the family calls for a minimal gesture, and on this particular day I settled on the chicest black dress I owned and teamed it with suede heels and crystals.

My head-to-toe love affair with Topshop is as clear as day. For one thing, the brand prides itself on a bold product range that’s accessible for all — including festive frocks for every occasion, as well as their sold-out design collaborations with Christopher Kane and Kate Moss. I got lucky when I say I managed to snap up this sleek and sheer number in my size. In truth, the mermaid-like attire is something I’ve been holding onto for a good couple of weeks now, and well worth the wait.

In this case, black is the new black.
