1 Dress: 3 Parties: Red hot look

Ladies, it’s less than two months until Christmas, and the invitations have been pouring in. To see you though the endless drinks, canapes and glitterballs, you will need a versatile dress that can be adapted whatever the dress code. Step forward the Biba cowl-neck dress. Sleeves mean it’s easy to dress down while the bold hue makes it a stand-out statement. But which one is your favourite look…?

Cocktails & Canapes

Think, sequins, high heels and a statement lip when heading out for a posh soiree. This Hobbs Invitation clutch fits all your essentials and will instantly lift your outfit. Team with these embellished shoes by Dune, Dyrberg Kern earrings and a bright slick of Lancome lipstick.

Family Party

When getting together with the family, it’s all about subtle sophistication. Grown-up investment pieces will like this Mary Portas bag, Pied a Terre leather boots and Mango black jacket look effortless and stylish. Complete with a perfect complexion courtesy of Benefit Cover-Up.

Work Party

It’s time to let your hair down. Super high-heel boots from KG, a Dune clutch bag to take your from day to evening and finishing touches from a art deco inspired Oasis belt and bling bling Nail Inc nail polish will make your colleagues green with with envy.

Kate O'Brien

Hi I'm Kate, in a previous life I was Womenswear Editor but these days you are more likely to find me pouring over a planning calendar than the latest copy of Elle in my role as Online Content Producer. A Northern tourist in London, some of my favourite things in life include red wine, chutney (accompanied by cheese), sequins, grey cashmere and Matt Damon. I am known in the HoF office for owning far too many coats for one person, laughing too loud, and drinking full fat Coke only when hungover. My life's ambition is a simple one; to own a Puggle.
