Everyone loves a party and smart clothes are a great investment - think of how many celebrations you go to at Christmas then remember there's New Year a week later and Valentine's Day in February, and maybe a nice wintery holiday in between. Having a few well-chosen pieces in your wardrobe means you're ready for anything, always looking your glamorous best. Sequined tops and velour trousers; the perfect dress or even daring some snake print - there are lots of different looks to see you through the season.
While you might be going out more than usual over the next couple of months, you still won't be dressing for them as often as you do for work, say. It is important to have a few versatile, high-quality items that you feel great in so you can create a number of different looks without breaking the bank. You can mix and match or dress them up or down in lots of different ways: a sequined top, for example, can look great with either smart trousers or jeans. There are some gorgeous ladies coats this season too - you can pop one on over a plainer dress or blouse and completely change your look! You can also use accessories to enhance a simple piece: the addition of a necklace or bag can change the whole outfit. This can be really useful if you’re going away and want to travel light.
Everyone wants clothes that flatter the figure and make the most of our best points. With a little care, you can find clothes that do just that. Think about shapes as well as colours when you’re creating an outfit; think about what you want to make the most of and what you want to hide. Remember, stylish clothes don't have to be revealing: there are many elegant cowl and roll neck tops and swishy knee-length skirts to choose from.
Even when you're dressed up, you still want to feel comfortable - you're supposed to be having fun, after all! There are some beautiful stretch fabrics to choose from with all kinds of designs and prints from metallic detail to flowers. Many skirts and pairs of trousers are available with elasticatedwaists which are not only easy to wear but also create a smooth silhouette when worn with a tunic top or denim shirts.
There are so many ways of looking and feeling gorgeous for the party season. Whether you mix and match or wear something different every time, you're sure to be the life and soul of the party.
