Be a Christ­mas cracker for this party sea­son

Rutherglen Reformer - - Dressing With Danielle -

The first doors of the ad­vent cal­en­dars have been opened, mince pies are fill­ing the shop shelves and the tin­sel is on the tree.

De­cem­ber is here and it is of­fi­cially party sea­son. This week I have teamed up with lo­cal shop I Love Fash­ion in Ruther­glen Ex­change Shop­ping Cen­tre to search for some fab­u­lous Christ­mas party wardrobe fillers.

Now, Christ­mas time can only mean one thing – sparkles – and I have found some gor­geous, af­ford­able looks for this sea­son.

The­beau­ti­ful black and gold dress on the right would be great for your Christ­mas of­fice party. Paired with a black vel­vet-style clutch, this is a so­phis­ti­cated look that is not go­ing to break the bank.

The hal­ter-style neck­line is very flat­ter­ing for ladies with a big­ger bust size and the con­trast in colours go­ing from gold to a plain black skirt gives the dress the per­fect shape and nips in just right at the waist.

This is the per­fect dress to flaunt your fig­ure.

The pe­plum is one of my favourite looks.

The gor­geous dress on the left has Christ­mas writ­ten all over it. It’s loud, it’s sparkly, it’s beau­ti­ful.

Se­quin-cov­ered dresses are a dif­fi­cult look to feel com­fort­able in, as they can be sharp around the edges and quite stiff, but this dress is very com­fort­able with plenty of move­ment and it is lined with a soft ma­te­rial.

The pe­plum helps min­imise the waist line and hips and gives the dress a lovely, unique shape.

I paired this dress with a leather-look, black and sil­ver clutch bag and plain, black tights to ac­cen­tu­ate the colour of the dress.

This is the sea­son to stun and red satin-style, long- sleeved dress be­low left that will not be a dif­fi­cult task.

This style of dress hangs beau­ti­fully over the bust and midriff and hugs neatly on to the thighs, which gives it a very flat­ter­ing shape for most fig­ures.

The ma­te­rial has a lovely shine and Kim­ber­ley de­scribed it as warm and “bril­liant if you’re stuck in the cold, wait­ing on a taxi home”.

Paired with a red and sil­ver shiny clutch bag, also from I Love Fash­ion.

You are gold! Bring in the bells this year in the classy num­ber be­low right.

Again I have cho­sen the pe­plum dress but with a bit of a twist. This is a per­fect dress to high­light the hips and ac­cen­tu­ate leg length with the grad­u­ated pe­plum style. I have matched with a gold clutch bag and kept jew­ellery to a min­i­mum.

Merry Christ­mas and a happy New Year. I’ll see you all in 2016.
