How Bethan Holt does the work/party style jug­gle

De­cem­ber is the time of full-to-burst­ing di­aries, but we’ve still got to go to the of­fice too, you know. The Tele­graph’s fash­ion news and fea­tures direc­tor re­veals her desk-to-party dress­ing for­mula

The Sunday Telegraph - Stella - - CONTENTS -

TAKE A BLOCK-COLOUR BA­SIC…

I’ve found that sin­gle-colour pieces are eas­ier to dress up than printed ones, so this fes­tive Joseph de­sign has been a go-to when I need to make it from 9am to 9pm.

…ADD BOOTS THAT GO ANY­WHERE…

These white Mango kit­ten heels are one of my buys of the sea­son. The comfy heel means they’re great for all-day wear, and the low cut works with skirts, dresses and trousers.

…AND SMART LAY­ERS…

I have an ever-ex­pand­ing ar­ray of plain polo-necks. Floaty dresses are eas­ily made win­ter-ap­pro­pri­ate by one worn un­der­neath. Uniqlo and Asos do the best.

…THEN FIN­ISH WITH BLING

A state­ment ac­ces­sory is a wise in­vest­ment at this time of year. An em­bel­lished draw­string pouch or drop ear­rings will add in­stant luxe to sim­ple out­fits.

IN CASE OF EMER­GEN­CIES

I have a plan of ac­tion for last-minute in­vi­ta­tions. I have some gold and resin ear­rings, a small evening bag and a red Nars lip­stick un­der my desk so I can do a swift swap come 6pm.
