Make sure you standout from the crowd this party season with our fashion-forward guide to dressing for every celebration. Although a classic cocktail dress is a failsafe festive winner, consider switching up your look this year with chic separates or a stylish jumpsuit. Get the party started with our four favourite looks… 

The Trophy Skirt

One of the biggest trends on the autumn/winter 2015 runways, those in the fashion-know are already rocking their trophy skirts. Show off yours before the clock strikes midnight and team with an on-trend luxe polo neck for a look which is guaranteed to take you into the New Year in style.

Stylish Separates

Forgo the classic LBD or sparkly mini dress on your girl’s night out and instead make a style statement in chic separates. A pair of wet look jeans have just the right amount of rock ‘n’ roll attitude, wear with a glittering top and shimmering silver accessories to make an impression on the dance floor.
