So here's my third and final blog of the season centred around Christmas party outfits. And this blog is dedicated to the dress code that can often be quite daunting when it appears on an invitation: black tie.
Black tie dressing can look frumpy if done wrong, so my advice is mix textures, metallics, sequins and embellishments to keep the look interesting and modern. Luckily the high street also have a really impressive offering when it comes to ball gowns this a/w- would you believe the Phase Eight full length sequinned number below was off the rack? Cinders doesn't need to have a designer budget in this day and age, although the last tube might mean the 12pm curfew can't be avoided!
1. Phase Eight Collection 8 Colette dress, John Lewis, £275.
2. Glitter Ball earrings, Cinderela B, £35.
3. Lanvin gold metallic logo clutch, Liberty, £225.
4. Hyla strappy heeled sandals, ASOS, £35.
