When it comes to party season dressing, do you have a type? Does every invitation send you into a sartorial tailspin or do you keep the fashion faith by reverting to a tried and tested look?
Admittedly, a festive family and friends get together won’t require the same effort that goes into a cocktail party, although for someone like me whose motto is Never Knowingly Under Dressed, this can be pushed as far as possible. And frequently is.
No…I’m referring to the office party, the New Years Eve bash or any type of event where seasonal dress up is required. Here are three of my favourites that instantly spring to mind…
