Go bold this party season with a daring colour choice. Don’t be afraid to contrast your shades when it comes to accessorising evening looks. If you want a break from the metallic clutch or heel combination go for something totally unexpected. Statement shoes and statement earrings are the perfect partners to this sleek midnight blue snakeskin print dress. Go low-key with a black suede clutch and smoulder in a smokey eye. 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

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

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
