QUESTION: Christmas party: €150. I need inspiration for an outfit. It can be a dress or top and trousers… preferably the latter! Any suggestions most welcome. I love the look of skinny jeans and longish top/short jacket.

ANSWER: We all love a good Christmas party, and looking glam is part of the fun. If you take a look at your fashion fingerprint you’ll see what items suit you and why, for you it’s all about creating balanced proportions.

1. Dorothy Perkins, Trousers £18:– These tapered fit trousers are great for creating a gorgeous silhouette and are perfect for dressier occasions. Style with blouses, wrap tops blazers and much more they are the perfect canvas for lots of great style combinations. Team with heels or sandals to really take these trousers to the party level.



2. Lauren by Ralph Lauren, Top £95:– A peplum top in this gorgeous shade will be great for balancing your proportions, and skimming over the tummy area. A less expensive piece of the Ralphn Lauren empire that you can wear again dressed down with jeans or with a skirt for work. Style with a statement necklace with gold or black gems.


3. East, Top £30:– Or maybe a peplum top in a more Christmasy shade to really get in the party mood.



4. Topshop, Jacket £49:– This jacket is a great piece of tailoring the creates a great shape and follows the line of the peplum top. You mentioned that your are quite fine for short jackets which are great, but I think a jacket like this will go further to balancing your shoulders to your hips.


5. Adrianna Papell, Dress £120.37:– I just adore the subtle lace detail on this dress and hope you will to! The fit-and-flare style is great for a feminine flare, especially when teamed with sandals. A dress like this is a wardrobe must because it works for many occasions and just requires a few of your gorgeous accessories to really make it sing.
