CREATED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH MARKS & SPENCER
Christmas party season is the time to play with textures. From rich velvets in jewel tones to embellished, well, everything, mix silks, velvets and sequins for maximum impact.
The right accessories can take a look from day to night in an instant. M&S has a plethora of bejewelled pieces this season, from vintage-inspired bags to statement earrings.
Separates are the secret to a frugal partywear wardrobe that you can use everyday and dress up for special occasions. A pleated skirt works just as well with a sheer blouse for after hours as it does with a white tee in the summer and a silk shirt for work.
No month works our social calendars quite as hard as December. Make sure you're ready for drinks parties and team nights out by elevating a classic LBD with a caped tux jacket and a great bag. Ditch the heels in favour of some sparkled statement flats.
M&S has plenty of LBD options whether you're after sequins or simplicity. Keep things modern by pairing with minimal accessories and ankle boots.
