Christmas frocks

Christmas is a time to celebrate your efforts over the year. We all look forward to the end of the year, so that we can relax and do things we normally can’t find time for. But before all that, it’s time to party!

Staff Christmas parties are always a hot topic. You’ve worked hard all year, so it’s time to treat yourself and get glammed up – and nothing is more flattering and fabulous than a cocktail dress. When it comes to party frocks this season, anything goes. Long or short, bright or black, tight or loose – you call the shots.

Is the dress for one party or many? If you have multiple events to attend over summer, take the time to think about what will be multi-functional. Just because you like the style doesn’t mean the dress likes you back. Think about drawing attention to your assets and diverting attention from your flaws. Does the dress fit your budget?
