MAXIMUM WEAR PARTY OUTFITS
Forget buying lots of sparkles – dresses and tops may look great on Christmas Day, but come Januar y they’ll look dated and hit the back of your wardrobe.
Go for bright accessories to dress up something you’ve already got. Or check charity shops in posh areas for dresses at a snip. This way you can hand them back afterwards without feeling guilty for splashing out.
Swap with friends or buy “worn once” items on eBay. This works best if you know your size in certain labels and stick with those, rather than trying out new ranges – sizes can vary.
Get party-ready by booking beauty treatments at a snip with local colleges’ beauty students.
Ah, but will you ever wear it again?
