These high street hits will work double time through your day to night wardrobe. A tuxedo stripe black trouser plus cosy grey cashmere jumper and black courts update a classic work look. Switch to a waist-enhancing black top with lace detail to upscale for evening. These H&M mid-heel metallic courts and a shimmery detail bag will finish off your evening look. Style with jeans and a chunky knit come the weekend. 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

The glitzy 80s is influencing a lot of what we see in stores today and coupled with that we have the run-up to festive season partying. It’s not going to be hard to find a sequin or two at this time of the year. Don’t keep these shimmery pieces just for the evenings. Take a sleek pencil skirt (to the knee or mini) and use it as your perfect festive run-around number. It sounds so wrong but it all works so right! Balance out the glitz and the fitted proportions with a cosy knit oversized jumper. Forego a pretty ballerina for an edgier trainer and finish with a structured mini tote. Do the same thing for cocktail hour. Style with a loose square cut velvet tee and pared back simple leather envelope clutch. The cheeky lace-up detail on the back of these black suede courts adds  a little something different to a wardrobe classic. Natalie x

Ohhhh…I am partial to a bit of razzle-dazzle, sumptuous faux-fur and a slinky heel at this time of the year. It’s a great excuse (as if you need one) to get dressed up. Think of making great purchases that will keep you going well into next year for those smart-casual evening looks or spring occasions. Ok, faux-fur will not work a room at a summer wedding but when the January blues set in it’s a fun and chic way to dress up your basic jeans and comfy boots look. You can already find great sales bargains on at the moment and now is a good time to start ear-marking those extra special pieces you might want to hunt down in the sales. Natalie x

QUESTION: I was wondering what I should wear with this dress to my work Christmas party? I’m looking for shoes, a bag and accessories. Thanks so much in advance for your help!


ANSWER: Loving the dress you’ve chosen! A fabulous mix of glitz, sophistication and fun, plus a great go-to outfit for winter weddings and future parties. As the dress already has some lovely embellishment on the shoulders, we’ve selection a range of accessories that will complement your frock perfectly:

1. New Look sandals, £27.99: – Block heels area often more comfortable that stilettos, just don’t forget to pop in a pair of gel party feet! The ankle strap keeps your foot nicely in place, ideal if you are standing for most of the evening. The beaded heel adds a wonderful touch of glamour and will be a fantastic accompaniment to a skinny jean and silk blouse combo for Christmas drinks with your mates:


2. New look heels, £24.99: – As you mentioned you’re good with platforms, we’ve found a stylish alternative to a court shoe that can also be worn with a pencil skirt for work or a pair of jeans and a blazer for a smart casual look. The raised platform makes this a manageable heel, whilst the lace-up detail gives the essential comfort factor:




3. Debut heel, £22.75: – If you’re after something a little more ‘sparkly’, a metallic heel will do just the trick! With a small platform, this gorgeous shimmery court will look lovely against the gold beading on your dress. A metallic heel will also see you through every season and is also a great way totransform an outfit from day-to-night:

4. Coast bracelet, £25: – Sticking with the black and gold theme, this bejewelled cuff bracelet will work wonders on your wrist! As the dress has beautiful neck detailing, accessorise with bracelets and rings rather than necklaces or earrings. Avoid overkill with a simple crystal or pearl in your ear – elegant and timeless:


5. Miss Selfridge bag, £16: – Lastly you didn’t mention if you had a bag, so we’ve picked a super stylish little clutch, the perfect way to complete your look. Karen x
