December is here which means party season!

I don’t know about you but it’s pretty hectic and going fast too. Not only is Christmas getting closer, but I’m sure many of you have parties to attend.

I had my first Christmas party a couple of weeks ago and decided that I’d buy a new dress for the occasion when I was heading out to the shops a few weeks ago.

I’m always surprised and a little disappointed by the amount of black dresses on the rails at this time of year and it did make me a little bit sad too. What there is this year is lots of sparkles, sequins, lace and velvet so more of what you expect for a party!

Black doesn’t actually suit everyone (sorry ladies!) so if you’re looking for a new outfit then try something with colour! Admittedly it may take a little more effort to find, but it’s definitely worth it!

Here’s my tips for our colour types:

 

Lights

Try wearing silver, blue, teal or violet colours.

 

Deeps

Try midnight blue, damson, navy or aubergine.

 

Warms

Try out Bronze, olive or gold.

 

Cools

Try midnight, fuchsia, purple, charcoal or silver.

 

Clears

Try wearing royal blue, scarlet or purple.

 

Softs

Try out pewter, charcoal or navy.

 

If you really can’t face wearing colour, or you’re struggling then try something in a softer looking fabric such as lace.

Wondering what colour I wore? Plum!

Happy shopping and partying and if you need any help, just get in touch.
