Want to be different; many of us find a party dress to ‘over the top’ and thankfully the rules have changed and it’s acceptable to wear a gorgeous jumpsuit, maxi dress (no jersey please) and even jeans at any Christmas party. However there are certain rules you rock ‘n’ roll chicks… if you go for jeans wear neat skinny indigo or black jeans, heels and a glamorous top with eye catching earrings or necklace; or for a more noticeable look try worn in jeans, some leopard-print, slinky top, big jewellery, bright heels and to mix it up a smart satin jacket and you’re good to go!

To add glamour I would always choose a pair of heels over flats  – it can make such a difference, elongating your legs and adding a little sex appeal to your outfit. Designers have reported a 70% increase in heel sales alone this year, so grab yourself a pair.. from a colour matching your dress or change the rules and go for a completely different colour, maybe some leopard print or a bejewelled toe –  kitten to skyscraper it’s all about sexing it up.
