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

Jacquard, brocade, velvet… textures fit for a queen and a perfect opulent trend for the festive season ahead. Make your party dresses work double time with jackets and accessories you might already own. If you snapped up a mannish velvet blazer, not only will it dress up jeans and blouses but it also adds a chic tailored finish to this dress. Throw in some extra sparkle with black glittery platform shoes and a mini gold bag. For party number two go for a sleek vintage-chic look with a faux-fur cover-up and delicate strappy metallic sandals. Picking up on the warm wintry tones of the dress finish off with a contrast textured day-to-night clutch. Natalie x

Who remembers Steve McQueen in that fisherman’s cable knit jumper in the Thomas Crown Affair? It’s the perfect knit, especially for bonfire night celebrations and  cosy winter looks. These gorgeous slate grey colours work so well blended together. Give them a boost with textures, like this animal skin-effect bag in a deep green and a cheeky glitter heel for daytime sparkle. In fact, at this time of the year, glitter is most definitely a wardrobe essential. Natalie x

Hands up who got caught in the rain this morning… minus umbrella or pastel pink trench like this piece from M&S? If you’ve already got your capsule wardrobe investment trench,  by that I mean something chic, sleek and neutral in stone, navy or black for example, why not spice things up with one of these summer shades. It’s a fun but very practical trend update to wardrobes. When it’s not raining, wear loosely draped over dresses for an occasion look or style with skinny jeans and skate shoes for weekend chic. A bit of glitter never harmed a day outfit or two. Natalie x

It’s not all floor-sweeping gowns or slinky cocktail dresses when it comes to party outfits. Your evening separates and accessories will add the glamour-factor to your favourite pair of jeans. Taking inspiration from all things art deco, flapper style feathers and glitzy beading make a welcome evening addition to outfits and a change from the usual sleek black pieces. This jacket will also pair perfectly with party dresses and you can also style the top with a pair of black trousers or slinky pencil skirt. Natalie x

STYLE ADVICE: I’m looking for a dress to wear for a New Year’s Eve dinner. The dress code is black tie and posh frocks. I have a couple of things in my wardrobe but they are years old and would need accessorising but I don’t mind buying something new.
I don’t get out to dressy occasions much so am reluctant to pay hundreds of pounds for a dress to hang in the wardrobe. I would spend up to £150 if you could work within that. Thank you for your help.

ANSWER: We’d love to recommend some items to accessorise your dress and maybe something new to try.

1. Monsoon jacket £59:– Add this fur bolero to your dress for the winter months and an added glam factor. You’ll be wearing this with many more gorgeous dresses to many more events:

4. Marks and Spencer dress £49.50:– If you decide to go for something new try this great evening piece from M&S. The lace and on trend velvet fabric makes this the perfect party piece. And its the perfect style for balancing your proportions. At this price you won’t feel bad about another dress in your wardrobe you’ll wear again and again. SarahA x
