6 ways to dress for the party

We are well and truly in the midst of party season and this week I am sure will see many a work-party. Then with NYE around the corner my eye is being caught by many a sequin dress, LBD and bling earring. My edit of what to wear to a party… and exactly how to style…

The Sequins

When I think Christmas / NYE sequins will always come first. I am partial to a daytime sequin especially in the Summer, a little shawl thrown over battered blue jeans is the perfect pairing. But come party-wear the bigger, the bolder the better. I would forgo the bling and let the dress/top/skirt do the talking. Keep hair and makeup simple and opt for an elegant over chunky heel…

The LBD

The classic little black dress – find the right one and it will serve you a lifetime of parties. And most can be dressed up and down to make it work harder for you. A LBD means you can definitely go big with the hair / makeup / bling. And shoe wise – I would think opposites. A dainty dress – go bolder with the shoe like a platform or ankle boot. A big wow dress – pick a more elegant scrappy sandal style shoe.

The Jumpsuit

Such an easy piece to wear, very little thought needed and it can look so much more modern than a dress. Shoes can be trickier as you want the right length trouser so worth trying a few heights. I love a flash of toe with mine…

The Power suit

Powerful – best styled simply with a cami or if you dare – bare. Maybe a delicate bralette you get a flash of every so often… add feminine earrings and an elegant clutch.

The bling

I am so routine with my bling – never taking my favourite gold pieces off so party wear is about the only time I have fun with jewellery. And my favourite way is with a huge pair of bling earrings. They frame the face so well and give just the right amount of pizzazz for the party…

The shoes

From elegant sandals, ankle boots and nude pumps – just make sure they’re comfortable. Nothing spoils a night like painful feet…

Have fun xx
