The Party Dress Test
Dress, Shoes and Earrings: Asos c/o Voucher Codes
So I think a lot of us have been guilty of buying a new frock for Christmas party season, and then only wearing it once. Off the top of my head I can think of two dresses I own that have been worn once only, on NYE.. A recent study by Voucher Codes revealed that 18-24 year olds (not that I'm part of that category, sob) spend an average of £119 on their Christmas party outfit, and only go to a few parties, so their outfit doesn't get many outings. So I was given a budget of £80 and challenged to come up with three outfits featuring a party dress, styled three ways.
The first look is a walk over Hampstead Heath- with a jumper over the top the dress is more of a skirt, and sure it was a bit snazzier than what most people were wearing, but I think it works. The second outfit is the party look- peep toe heels and earrings to dress it all up a bit- I'll be wearing this for our work do I think. Finally, a more casual daytime office look- flats and a shirt to dress the look down. Simples.
