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?
