How Not To Feel Guilty About Buying That Party Dress

With the festive season just around the corner you’ve probably already got your eyes on some great party dresses and accessories. Put off from buying because you think you’ll probably only wear them once or twice? Think again. We’re showing you how to integrate the best going-out pieces of the season into your everyday wardrobe.

1. Party coats

Go all out with a colourful faux fur coat – wear with a party dress for nights out or layer with contrasting brights for every day.

2. Velvet

Style a velvet skirt, dress or trousers with a roll-neck and puffer jacket for a cool contrast.

3. Party dresses

The evening dresses you’ll be wearing with heels and statement jewellery come Christmas can be pared back much easier than you think. Layer a knitted jumper on top, add a belt and you’re good to go.

4. Statement trousers

Statement trousers are an essential this party season. Worn with a chunky knit and statement bag, they become office-appropriate.

5. Festive bags 

A festive handbag will instantly transform your casual wardrobe. Think cropped jeans and a floral top to make it so right for now.

6. Mini skirts

Pair a vinyl mini skirt with a button-down blouse and corset belt to make it work when you’re not on the dance floor.

7. Thigh-high boots 

Even thigh-high boots can be dressed down. Take your cues from the street style stars and wear yours with a longline blouse and tailored blazer.
