Glitter bombing the little black party dress

Asos party dressesThe seasonal hunt is on! The Christmas party dress-up is followed by the New Year’s eve knockout. Black is a standard favourite for the office party and colour is festive seasonal favourite.

Your back in black, dressing for the more sedate office party

One thing to remember is that you don’t want to be competing with the Christmas decorations at a formal works’ dinner. Without being too revealing or dressy, our A-line black knitted Karen Millen mini dress stands out as a fun, chic silhouette detailed with silver studs. Office parties are not like job interviews but keeping the risqué boundaries intact will not draw the wrong sort of attention.

Glitter bombing with the ladies

Indulge in a glitter fest of metallic and sparkly attire totally at odds with the safe seasonal black dress. Revamping your look with a gold dress or a sleeveless design with an embellished neckline, pleats, sequins and zip fastenings. High neckline dresses with long or short sleeves are popular whether you choose lace or fluted sleeves.

Here’s a list of dresses for this season:

How to save a small fortune this Christmas…

Exclusive Offers this ChristmasWith Christmas a matter of weeks away it seems the festive season has crept up on us pretty fast. Digging out your cosiest knitwear and warming up by the fire seems rather dreamy as we battle the bitter cold; and as twinkling Christmas lights line the streets, the romantic atmosphere of Christmas is undeniable.

But if you’ve got a tight budget to work with this year, the reality is that Christmas can turn into a financial nightmare. Not only does the pressure of a high street crowd take the fun out of pre-Christmas shopping, it’s also a hideously expensive affair – that’s why Style Compare has come up with a solution to save you a small fortune.

Bring on the boohoo Boutique collection

Swanky dinners in London’s trendy Hoxton aren’t something I go to everyday, so I jumped at the chance to join a host of fashion bloggers at the launch of boohoo’s gorgeous Boutique Collection. In a private room at the uber-smart Hoxton Bar & Grill I sipped strawberry cocktails and ate an indulgent three course supper (we’re talking scallops and chorizo, Chateaubriand and chocolate brownie bites with hot chocolate sauce) alongside the likes of The Very Simon G, Boy Meets Fashion and Alex Loves.

Style Compare Does LFW

Style Compare does London Fashion Week SS13London Fashion Week is a must for fashionistas – and passionate fashion fans. On Saturday, Steph and I were flying the flag for Style Compare at the event, with a packed day of LFW action.

We toured The Exhibition at Somerset House in detail; from David Koma, Holly Fulton and Sister by Sibling, to lesser known (but hotly tipped) designers like Sophia Webster (the sexiest shoes going) and Olga Vilshenko (Russian-inspired fashion with a 70s sense of chic), the grand, old building is stuffed full of fashion.
