Party season is officially here so what better excuse do you need to treat yourself to a gorgeous new frock. Choose carefully and you'll have yourself a dress that'll see you through every occasion from sitting down for your Christmas lunch to partying the night away on the 31st. We think we've just found ours…
Read on to find out how you could WIN your favourite piece from this feature!
After Christmas Day we'll all be gearing up for the last party of the year and boy do we want 2013 to go out in style. This is the perfect party piece in a classic black and white colour combo. Plus, what says party more than head to toe sequins?
Offset the rich jewel tones with neutral separates for a polished ensemble. This stunning winter white blazer is given the luxe treatment thanks to it's gold button and zip details that make it look uber-expensive in the process. Pair with a faux fur scarf for the most glamorous cover-up combo you'll see this year.
You can thank the fash-pack for making show-stopper earrings one of the hottest accessory trends of the season, so it comes as no surprise that River Island have got in on the bauble action too. If you want a slightly more understated jewellery look, then try these oversized gold stud earrings. They will give your outfit that chic spin, without be too OTT.
Box clutches are still the hottest arm-candy around but we love how they've had a party update with lashings of jumbo gems and beading. This glam number could verge on looking OTT but the classic black and gold colourway brings it back to totally wearable. We love!
There's nothing sexier than a pair of minimal sandals so imagine our delight when we spotted these new-in heels! They come in practically every colour under the sun – everything from fuchsia pink to sophisticated black – but in timeless cream, they'll literally go with everything you own. What a cost-per-wear saviour!
