Dressing for the festive season

This may be the season of good will however it is also the season of rush, rush, rush with a very busy few weeks leading up to Christmas. We all have gift shopping and food shopping to do, not to mention those parties and events to attend. So it is wise to get prepared in advance.

When buying special occasion wear, the first question to ask yourself is how formal is the party going to be. Do you need a full length dress or will you be going straight from work to a drinks do?

One of the questions I get asked frequently is –  where do I find a dress with sleeves?  so all the dresses I have chosen here have sleeves.

Winter white – How to wear it

Winter white sweaters can be challenging to wear on a daily basis due to their delicate colour. However in my opinion it is worth the effort provided you purchase a good quality wool that is washable, not many of us want to spend our time or money at the dry cleaners.

Winter white is a very flattering colour especially during the duller winter months when we are usually attired in black, grey or navy. It gives a much needed lift to ones wardrobe and co-ordinates well with both neutrals and brights.

This is not a look I have tried before at this time of year, so I thought I would experiment and here are the results.  I found wearing “winter white”  easy,  flattering and refreshing.
