Head To Toe Christmas Party Survival Guide

1.  The perfect cover up

As much as we love to flash the flesh at the party scene, you always need a glam cover-up to get you from A to B. The classic Tuxedo jacket is ideal, layered over dresses or trousers, or if you want something more stand out than safe, this season's sequinned blazer will work a treat.

2.  The shoes you can dance in

Victoria Beckham may love her 7 inch platform heels but then she has a chauffeur to take her home! While a platform will give you a lift without having to wear sky-high heels, shoe boots are the fashionistas' choice of footwear this season. As you are either laced up or zipped in right up to the ankle they're more supportive than an open sandal so you can dance all night! But make sure they don't pinch and you can walk in them before you go out!      

3.  The bargain dress you can wear to every party

Dress-wise either be brave and opt for a show-stopping dress like one of this season's sequinned or hot scarlet numbers. Or go for the classic LBD and add individuality with new accessories for each occasion - coloured tights, a statement necklace or stand-out shoes will all give your outfit a completely new twist.

4.  The glam flats for walking home in

We've all been there: it's the end of the evening, you're danced your feet off and are a little tipsy in your heels! So definitely worth investing in a pair of chic flats to ensure you make a glam exit and get home comfortably. 

5.  The go-anywhere party bag

Keep is simple and invest in one bag that will work with any outfit this season. Celebs from Lily Allen to Kate Moss don't go anywhere without their classic quilted Chanel bag, so take a leaf out of their book - a quilted chain bag from the high street is a classic that moves effortlessly from day to night.  

6.  The black trousers that flatter every figure

In every party season, there comes a time when you want to look good, without going over the top. This is when having that fail safe killer pair of black trousers will come to the rescue time and again. Fab styled with a sequined vest top and black tuxedo-style jacket or teamed with gorgeous purple or hot pink satin blouse for simple sophistication. 

7.  The bargain accessory that'll transform every outfit

Be it a jewelled-coloured belt, chandelier earrings, a cocktail ring or a sparkly necklace; a bold statement accessory will set you apart from the crowd, and give your party wardrobe a refreshing twist - without dipping into your savings!

8.  The multi-way push up bra

It's all very well having a gorgeous dress but make sure you've got the underwear to enable you to carry it off to perfection. A multi-way push-up bra is the perfect party season essential. It will enable you to wear anything from strapless to plunging necklines front and back, concealing unsightly straps whilst giving you the lift and shape you need. 

9.  Flawless tights

Leg wear is as important as the dress itself. Make sure you've got a selection of fabulous tights to add a splash of colour to any outfit. Always make sure they're free of ladders and pulls and carry a small bottle of clear nail varnish with you - so you can stop holes running if disaster strikes! 

10.  The corsage that makes your dress look designer...  

Oversize corsages have been spotted on everyone from Carrie in Sex And The City to Kimberley Walsh, so if you fancy adding a bit of designer glamour to your frock, try adding one of these beauties - and the bigger the better! They are certain to give your dress a real wow factor!

Client Testimonials

I found out that the clothes I was always buying did not create a good image for my shape or age. If only I had invested in a personal stylist years ago!

It really was time to get my wardrobe into shape. My personal stylist knew what worked on me and what didn't. The advice was invaluable and now I have an outfit for every occasion!

The whole experience has changed my perspective about me and my life and my clothes. I feel so much more confident and I can't thank you enough.

She knew exactly what would suit me. I tried on outfits I would never have thought of. It was fantastic to go shopping with a true expert.

Every time I go out I feel brilliant and it's so easy to dress now. I have had so many compliments which has really boosted my self-esteem.

I now know what to wear and when which is so helpful having just had a baby. My body shape has changed but I now know I can still look good. My husband is very happy too!

She's done things to my eyes that remind me of pictures taken 25 years ago!!! I would recommend the make-up masterclass to anyone. The advice is truly fantastic.

Every experience was over and above my expectations and something I will cherish for a very long time. I can't thank the whole team enough - my personal stylist, my make-up artist and my hair stylist were fantastic, and the organisation of the services were flawless.

It's the little changes that make all the difference, and you've raised her self-appreciation and confidence, great work. It's the best Christmas present I have ever bought my wife.
