Signature Styling #11

Vogue




























Finding the perfect party outfit can challenge even the most style savvy among us.  The key is to stay true to yourself, as the same rules apply whether you are dressing for day or after dark.  What you wear shouldn't wear you, and your own personality should shine through!

Here are my essential tips for evening dressing...

Black Magic...
The little black dress is the ultimate blank canvas and often the instant sartorial answer to that last minute invitation.  This wardrobe classic is a seasonal mainstay, and clever use of current accessories or some statement heels is all you'll need to bring your favourite frock bang up to date.

Night brights...
Why not stand out from the crowd this Christmas in a burst of bold colour?  Choose from eye popping brights to rich jewel tones depending upon the occasion or your mood.  

The Shining...
Be the star of the show this season in a splash of molten metal or sparkling sequins! But do wear with care.  Balance this dazzling look by opting for a more demure cut or choosing understated accessories.  Alternatively, invest in a bejewelled bag or shoes to instantly update a simpler style. 

Girl Meets Boy...
Dress up minus the dress in a timeless tuxedo.  This traditional two piece is as dramatic and versatile as the LBD, and just as sexy.  

Modern Glamour...
The blurring of the am/pm crossover has seen elements of after dark dressing appearing in our daily wardrobes, and daytime staples  become evening essentials.  Modern glamour is all about achieving a laid back but luxurious look, so play with contrasts.
