December is here! Carols are playing in the shops, gifts are filling store windows and kids are sending of their wish lists to the North Pole. It’s time to celebrate and enjoy the events that are filling your calendar this month. Invites for end of year parties (for work and social catch ups) are also on their way and it’s time to start thinking about what to wear this festive season.

Here’s some inspiration to get you thinking about winding up the year in style…

Wearing red, white or green is a nice way to get into the spirit of Christmas. Try to avoid looking like a walking decoration display by balancing out the colour combinations and adding some classy accessories.

TIP 1 – Choose a shade of red that compliments your skin tone, deeps reds and burgundy shades are a classy way to dress to the season.

TIP 2 – Flattering shades of green are hard to find. Little pops of green or accessories in eye catching shades tie in nicely with red or white but they must complement each other.

TIP 3 – Red and white look great together but to avoid looking like a giant candy cane choose blocks of colour or accessories that balance out stripes.

Dress // Mirror // Lipstick // Heels

TIP 4 – Lace is on trend and always looks elegant. There are many styles and options to suit every budget so shop around to find a fit that works for your body.

TIP 5 -White is the most versatile canvas and looks great for any occasion. Go white from head to toe for a striking, snow inspired, look (avoid that clumsy work colleague or you may go home with a rainbow of wine stains on your outfit). Pops of colour work with a white dress and can be as bold or as minimal as you’d like to go. Add a novelty clutch or accessories for a bit of fun.
TIP 6 -For the perfect red pout use a lip primer, foundation and lip liner.
TIP 7 -You can’t go past a pretty red dress. All red looks stunning if you can match the shade of your shoes to your dress. No time to find red heels? Then track down a pair of nude shoes, they will draw attention up to your outfit and make your legs look longer.

TIP 8 -If in doubt add gold. Metallics can send an outfit from wah to WOW and why not add a little sparkle to your outfit, after all it is Christmas!

TIP 9 -Pack a coat that is as fabulous as what you are wearing underneath. December is technically summer but the nights can cool down and if you are going to more than one place in a night you may need a scarf or jacket on hand.
