“From planning the menu to creating a beautiful table, hosting at home is always so fun. I'm leaning towards layered cream looks this winter – they're so chic. This fun top and skirt is perfect for when the dancing starts. I'm obsessed with Harmur – its silk tops feel like butter and everything is beautifully made.”

“This Vampire's Wife dress is pure drama. It’s elegant but still sensual and I love the slightly glittered effect. Cropped sleeves are a must for me when entertaining – it removes the risk of getting pasta sauce on my sleeves. I love a bit of glam all year round but especially during the festive period, so I always look for a bit of interest in my accessories, for example these Silver and Gold heels.

“If I’m going all out, this bright blue Taller Marmo feather trim dress is pure joy. If you love dressing for comfort and style, opt for a loose fit like this. It’s easy to throw on after cooking, before your guests arrive and always looks chic. I’ll be pairing my dress with sparkly heels and some delicate pearl jewellery.”

Lucy Williams

“My default look for entertaining at home tends to be fairly casual and, ultimately, comfortable. That usually means jeans or tailored black trousers with something a little ‘extra’ to make it feel like more of an occasion. Great jewellery or fun heels often work best. Hosting at home is also the perfect excuse to wear shoes you love but don't get much use out of – for me, it’s my By Far mules.”

“Chocolate coloured tones are having a moment and feel very fitting for autumn. I love to dress up while hosting, but comfort is important too, so this Réalisation Par dress is perfect. I’ve paired it with jewellery from some of my favourite brands to elevate it a little.”
