Here are five looks that are sure to give you that sartorial boost you need to get through your growing social calendar.

Sequin separates

The sequin party dress is a wardrobe staple but if you’re looking for a new way to shine bright like a diamond, try pairing a sequin top and with sequin pants, the trick here is to pair different tones of sequin, keep it in to monochromatic range though so you don’t end up looking like a decoration.

Velvet Pants

Nothing gives a touch of seasonal flair quite like a velvet – holidays most festive fabric. Pair with rich, contrasting materials like a billowy metallic blouse.

Sheer Blouse

While winter may traditionally be the time we cover up, there’s something sexy about showing a little skin and this season it’s in the form of sheet skirts, gausey dresses and tulle tops. This one will have party guests wondering if you’re naughty or nice.

Chic Christmas Sweater

Who said they all need to be ugly? Look for sweaters that have a little character, hardware on the sides or even slightly embellished.
