From work to Christmas party – in one outfit!

So Christmas is nearly upon us and those seasonal invites are filling up your social diary. But what do you wear when you’ve got to go out straight from the office or client meeting?

Karen Skagerlind shares her solution for that age-old party season dilemma – the perfect day-to-night outfit.

Get the foundation right

This cosy angora roll neck jumper and shimmer tweed cigarette trousers, both from Next, form the foundation of your day-to-night outfit.

Dress it down at work

Wear with comfy flats at work or when out on errands, like these snow leopard leather slippers from Zara. And wrap up with a classic, wool mix coat (I love the pearl grey colour of this one from Zara).

Dress it up at night

Then get into the Christmas spirit by transforming your on duty look into an evening outfit by adding this M&S Collection metallic sequin jacket and gorgeous bejewelled satin heels by Next. As a finishing touch, grab this on-trend sequin hard case clutch from Accessorize and you’re ready to party!
