Christmas and the run up to the big day is all about having fun and feeling good. Choosing the right outfit - one that you feel fantastic in is all part of making the big day special. So here are our four top tips to boost your confidence while looking a million dollars.

1     Consider Colour                                                                                
If you usually opt for a little black dress try colour – instead choose purple or other jewel colours which are so popular this season, whether you go for a dress or a tunic. Team with opaque tights or leggings.                                       

2     Add Some Sparkle
A plain outfit can be transformed with the addition of some knockout accessories – sparkly belts and jewellery can turn a plain outfit into a party look, continue the theme with matching shoes and bag. After work parties mean a quick change from everyday smart into Christmas glamour so this tips a must.

3     Scarves
Pretty floaty scarves can serve several purposes –firstly an extra, light layer if its chilly, around neck and shoulders, but without the weight of a cardigan or shrug, though shawls and shrugs are really useful for winter occasions. Secondly, if your arms and shoulders are not your favourite part they can provide a useful cover up without hiding your whole outfit.

4     Kimonos
This summer’s big hit, and they continue to be popular this winter. In contrasting or matching colours to your they add a touch of glamour –they float and billow at the back to give a suggestion of the curves beneath, rather than cling to you, so are incredibly flattering.  Opt for one with a touch of Christmas sparkle to finish off your outfit.                                          

So this Christmas day use our tips to try a different look , even if it’s only a small change – and then relax and enjoy.
