Velvet has always been a festive season look. But this year it’s been given a real style reboot as one of the key catwalk trends, and not necessarily just reserved for party looks. There is nothing more indulgent than a plush velvet dress that sweeps all the way down to the floor. This DVF number is a real show stopper. You might also like something like this from the Reformation £315 or this dark purple dress from Wallis £35. Velvet lends itself to all things sparkly like these glitter accessories. You can also go for 100% opulence and style with jewelled bags or shoes and glitzy jewelled chandelier earrings. Natalie x

Why not go for a double tux-lux look? These pieces not only all combine together like the perfect fashion ingredients to create a chic evening look but they are also the ideal capsule wardrobe must-haves. The tuxedo jacket will double up day or night adding that final tailored polish to looks. You’ll get maximum wear out of this sophisticated black maxi dress. Dress it up for spring with fresh brights like fuchsia or turquoise. Accessories can change the mood of an outfit in a flash and these metallic heels and jewelled earrings will take you from day-to-night. Natalie x

Every wardrobe needs one of those instant top-to-toe ‘wow’ looks. Something that you can just ‘throw’ together because you know it will all work. That thrown together look takes a bit of planning and capsule wardrobe building. If you like particular colours – for example pastels – build some of your key wardrobe pieces around these favourite shades. Whilst a sugary pink and edible mint green look fabulous with ice-cool crystals and metallics (as above) you can just as easily style this dress with a strappy black sandal (not a court shoe as it is too heavy) and black clutch for a bolder feel. This fabulous feathered cropped jacket would work a dream with jeans (black or blue) – ditto the clutch. And there you have it: gorgeous key pieces to work into perfect wow looks. Natalie x
