Mince pies, mulled wine, carols, mistletoe… there’s so much involved in the perfect Christmas party. Will that person you like show up? Who’s your Secret Santa present from? And, most importantly, what will you wear? Here are some tips to help you outshine the Star of Bethlehem, and to guarantee you’ll be rocking around the Christmas tree. christmas looks

Plan your outfit in advance:
You don’t just need to think about going out dresses. To really stand out, you need a whole look. Make sure you have the right accessories, and an idea about how you’re going to style your hair and make-up. Then the event can be stress free, and your confidence will be boosted by the fact that you know you’re going to look fabulous.

Try wearing something different:
There’s a time and a place for staying in your comfort zone. But whether it’s just a small gathering with friends, or a massive bash, the Christmas party is not one of them. It’s a great chance to dare yourself to wear a style you’ve always wanted to, but thought you couldn’t - be a little adventurous… Never done sequins? Always been afraid of the asymmetric one shoulder? Try it! You may love that same old little black dress, but you can do better.

Wear something that flatters you:
Remember, while conversations might focus on your clothing, you want the attention to be focused on you. If you have curves, emphasize them in a bodycon dress. If you’ve got killer legs, show them off in a micro-mini. Then, when it’s back to normal attire, that attractive person from the party will be left with the memory of what those jeans and jumpers are hiding.

Don’t be shy:
Now is not the time for false modesty. When you’re dressed up, ready to go, and you’re looking hot - tell yourself you are. Your dress might sparkle like tinsel, but if you feel sexy and confident in it, it’ll be you that’s glowing. Strut your stuff at the Christmas party, and watch compliments and flirtation flutter to you like moths to a flame.
