Frock around the clock

The Christmas party season is here and it's time to treat yourself for all the hard work you have done this year. Turn heads at your knees-up with a dress that flatters your figure and makes you feel great!
  • Strapless baby-doll dresses

This look is great on pear-shaped girls as it draws attention to your slimmer upper half, while the fuller skirt will disguise your bottom and thighs if they are not your strong points.

  • Lace Dresses

If you are a classic person who likes a vintage style, go for lace this party season. The more simple styles can also be dressed down or worn under a blazer for work when you start back in the New Year.

  • Maxi Dresses

The maxi dress has made a huge come back. Worn with heels, this strong trend for the season will give your body a long, sexy, feminine line. This look will work on any body shape.

  • Bright dresses

Be brave and stand out in a bright-coloured dress. Try lots of options to be sure you settle on a colour that works with your complexion, not just a colour you like. When you get this right you will be blown away by the number of compliments you get.

  • Extras

Sometimes good accessories are all you need. Why not vamp up one of your old dresses with a bold belt to give it a new shape and style? If you don’t like showing your arms, or you just need a warmer layer, an evening jacket is the perfect outer layer for any party dress.
