Party season essentials
I read the other day that most women have their festive season party outfits planned by early November. And wouldn't you know it, we're in early November right now. So to help you on your way I've put together the party outfits you need to add to your arsenal this December, whether it's for the work Christmas lunch or the glamorous cocktail party of the year.
This is The Dress. If you only buy one party season essential, this is it. Wear with ballet pumps and an alpaca wrap for everyday luxury, but go with heels and as much sparkle as you can cram into the accessories for a full on party look.

The gorgeous velvet faux wrap adds a touch of luxury and glamour to your favourite jeans for an evening out outfit to wow. The skinny velvet scarf adds a modern-retro touch.
Love separates? Elevate them with flounce and print. The alpaca shawl keeps you cosy for the late night journey home (and in case of hosts with a different idea about central heating requirements!) without sacrificing elegance while the silky roll neck lends an air of sophistication to the ensemble.
Work Christmas lunch beckoning? The super-useful ponte dress will up the ante during party season then behave beautifully as your go to work dress in January. Add a splash of bright with your scarf and a hint of luxury with the new improved merino wrap.
This week's post uses colours from the Autumn palette. Each week we will be choosing a different seasonal palette to illustrate our blog posts - watch out for yours!
