Are you slightly anxious about what to wear for all the Christmas and New Year Dos that are happening?! Well, I have selected some on-trend pieces to give you ideas on what to wear for this party season along with some tips on accessorising and dressing for your shape.
It really is all about maximising on the glam this festive season! Sequins, beading and glitter in abundance and this is the time of year when you can go completely over the top and get away with it! After all, its tradition, right? What's more, the catwalk sparkles massively this season, with designers such as Dolce and Gabbana leading the way:
|Dolce and Gabbana A/W '11|
Team with contrasting but complimentary coloured accessories that also contain hints of the colour of the dress or chosen footwear to pull the outfit together cohesively.
But you can also, alternatively, just let the dress speak for itself and keep accessories to a minimum.

Are you tall with super-long legs and a slim frame? Then maybe go for a dress like the gold-sequined full-length River Island gown (as above). Do you possess an enviable curvaceous figure - particularly voluptuous hips? Then you can "rock" a dress like the French Connection cobalt blue which is structured to be fitted to show off that hour-glass shape whilst still keeping it chic.
Notice the similarities between the High Street River Island ensemble and the Dolce and Gabbana gown:
