Smart seperates


If you're already sick of the sight of sequinned dresses - bearing in mind it's only the beginning of the festive mayhem - you're not entirely doomed... there are alternative options. A subtle sparkle knit is a nonchalant solution for day-to-night dressing. Pair with suit trousers and give the whole look a fun flourish with a glittering bag and statement pair of pointed mules.

 

 


Easy sequins


Christmas is all about the sequins, but they can easily feel a little over the top for more casual affairs. The secret to wearing sequins for the office Christmas party is opting for fun statement pieces that you can throw on top of some of your casual uniform. Keep the rest of your outfit pared back and casual with black coated jeans and ankle boots, and opt for minimal makeup and tousled, undone hair.

 

 


The party dress


Don’t just reach for that classic little black dress you have collecting dust in the back of your wardrobe. You can still don the season's glitz and glamour without it being totally over the top. The wrap dress is the most flattering work-appropriate style out there, and a metallic finish is just the festive touch we’re after. This season is all about the added extras, so as well as a stellar shoe and evening bag arsenal, look to hair slides and headbands to add a touch of personality to your outfit.
