WHAT TO WEAR TO THE CHRISTMAS/NYE PARTY?

It's that time of year again, you know when everyone dresses up and crowds into the hired photobooth. The finance director starts chatting up the poor girl from HR and 'Polly' the intern gets so drunk she wets herself - THE OFFICE CHRISTMAS PARTY.

There is always a bit of a drama when it comes to deciding what to wear, we don't want to look memorable incase something tragic happens, but we don't want to look like we came straight from the office. Us Brits care more about these things then actual work performance (not a proven fact).

Here are a few fashion picks, hopefully for everyones budget, that I love, but if you're not sold... there's always the little black dress.

I have been obsessing over star prints all autumn, but add a moon and you're an instant astrological goddess. Just beware of the "What's your star sign?' chat up line. It happens - believe me.

Following on from the stars, Metallics and Sequins are also huge this winter - not just for new year celebrations. At the moment you cannot step foot in any shop without seeing a metallic sock boot - not that i'm complaining. Feed your inner magpie, think like Rihanna - Embellish EVERYTHING. Trashy BLING BLING.

Not wine, not dark pink, not burgundy - RED - The colour of the season, so simple yet so easy to get wrong! We love clashing red lips with a red dress and red shoes. We don't love pairing green and white, throw in some marabou and people will be asking what it's like to be Mrs Claus?
