Purple patterns might seem straight out of Austin Powers but they’re actually great for Christmas, says Jane Moore

WHEN I’m old I shall wear purple… with a youthful twist.

While this Sixties-style co-ord could have come straight from an Austin Powers movie, it’s actually bang on trend as we go into the Christmas party season.

Obviously, if you’re going “out out” then it’s sequins and sparkles all the way, but for the middle ground of showing effort with a quirky twist then you’d be hard pushed to beat this outfit for the wow factor.

Better still, it has multiple uses. You could break it up by wearing the trousers with a plain T-shirt or blouse and, for the more adventurous, team the top with a pair of black opaque tights and you have a cute mini dress to rival any of the short styles now in fashion.

I have teamed it with a pair of black ankle boots, but you could go dressier with a pair of strappy sandals. Groovy, baby.
