Should you wear velvet this Christmas? The answer – yes! Velvet is the perfect festive choice for the season and right now it is bang on trend! This luxurious fabric not only looks great but feels so good!

It is quite obvious by now that velvet is one of the fabrics of the season. Yes, velvet generally gets a bit more of a look in around this time of year. But this year, more than ever, velvet has made a come back.

The Office Christmas Party Commandments

Yes, it’s that time of year again, it’s time to start thinking about the office Christmas do! But let’s not forget although this is a time to have fun and socialise with your colleagues.

But it is also worth thinking about how you dress, oh yeah and of course being on your best behaviour is kinda important on this one!!

The Do’s and Don’ts of the office Christmas Party

Do

Office Christmas Party

Love Moschino Dress With Split £ 190.00 True Decadence Tall £ 45.00 Minimum Long Sleeve Metallic Bodycon Dress NOW £25.00

1/ Have fun – enjoy spending time with your colleagues outside of a working environment.

2/ Think about your outfit in advance – making an effort is important.

3/ Take a light cover-up with you – just in case the venue is a bit nippy or in the worse case scenario, to avoid feeling under dressed.

4/ Do dress to impress – this is the time to add a little sparkle or some strappy heels, embrace the fact you can wear what you wouldn’t usually wear to work.

5/ Do mingle – make an effort to chat to everyone and not leave anyone out, after all it’s Christmas. 

6/ Do put away your phone – be polite and turn your phone on silent, checking it only in private and NOT cruising on social media.

7/ Do look like yourself – but switch it up a notch!!

Don’t

1/ Don’t get too drunk (like poor Bridget did in the image above!)- over indulging in alcohol is not a good idea. It’s just not. 

2/ Don’t wear something too itsy-bitsy or too revealing – this is not the time to be sexy.

3/ Don’t Wear too high-heels – you don’t want to feel uncomfortable or fall over…

4/ Don’t trap people in long conversations – keep the conversation light, this is not the time to get political.

5/ Don’t gossip or make nasty comments!! – no one likes a meany!

6/ Don’t wear too flashy colours (a classic LBD is always a winner) and certainly don’t go for over-the-top sequins! – dress a little more conservative than a party outside of work. But if you do like a bit of gold or silver (after all it is Christmas) then that’s ok too. 

Stay tuned to find out how to dress for the office Christmas Party! But remember to follow the office Christmas party commandments to avoid awkward situations and tears.

3 Ways To Wear The Cape Dress

This Autumn Winter the cape is making a come back. Capes, ponchos and yes even cape dresses. But this style isn’t only for the adventurous fashionistas out there! Nope, there is something for everyone!

Famous Faces Wearing Cape Dresses

We have seen the likes of J-Lo, Kim Kardashian and Cameron Diaz amongst many other famous faces sporting the cape dress. When done right it can be elegant, sophisticated and look darn right powerful. But we would like to stress…WHEN done right.

Ladies there are 3 ways to wear this style in…style.

Wear it: Long

Cameron Diaz does this look in an elegant floor-sweeping gown. This style of dress might well be the polar opposite of the LBD but still sexy.

The fitted silhouette is suggestive yet flattering to her curves and the stunning cobalt blue goes hand in hand with a women’s best accessory…her eyes!

Long-Cape-Dresses

 

 

Elise Ryan Maxi £ 68.00 Fame and Partners Cape Dress £ 160.00 Halloween Cape Dress from Plus brands at ASOS £ 49.99

Wear it: Mini

Keep it cute like Alexa in a mini dress, but this time with a twist. We think the cape style transforms the classic mini dress into something a little Alice and Wonderland. Making this dress a winner in our eyes.

Mini Cape Dresses

True Decadence Tall Embellished Neck Cape Dress £45.00 Warehouse Premium Embellished Cape Sleeve Dress £80.00 Missguided Plus Cape Dress £35.00

 

Wear it: Hollywood

Angelina Jolie does Hollywood glam like no other. This style resembles true Hollywood style from years gone by. The short cape is classic, classy and therefore timeless, so it’s the perfect choice for a “Black tie do” or the office Christmas party.
