According to the Financial Times‘ resident style editor, Jo Ellison, this festive season it is all about keeping the focus on your top half with “over the table dressing”. The theory is simple; people will only see your top half when you’re sitting down at your Christmas dinner party, so focus your attention there. I totally love this approach as wearing your best colours on your top half ensures maximum impact; your skin will glow, your eyes will sparkle and you’re sure to turn heads for all the right reasons!
Have Fun With Your Party Look
Christmas is the time for sparkle and fun, so try stepping out of your comfort zone!
There is lots of choice when it comes to embellishment this season; lace, sequins, embroidery and elaborate sleeves are all widely available. Textures like silk and velvet are also very popular and will add a luxurious feel to your party ensemble.
If you prefer to keep your party look a little more understated though, a smart blazer or colourful necklace are simple ways to add colour and detail.
