Getting Party Ready with New Look

With Christmas just around the corner, it’s likely you’ll be spending all of your money on presents for other people but if you’ve got a Christmas party or event coming up – don’t forget to treat yourself! What I like to do at this time of year is look at the party dresses I already have in my wardrobe and find different ways to accessorise them to create brand new looks. That way you’re only spending money on accessories, rather than a whole new outfit!

To celebrate the arrival of New Look’s Party Ready collection they kindly sent me a goody bag full of accessories to style up one of my Christmas party outfits. My go-to outfit for nights out with my friends is always an LBD and faux fur jacket (or sometimes a faux leather jacket) but paired with the glittery lilac clutch bag and triangle necklace, it now has a far more festive feel -  perfect for Christmas!

Christmas is the one time of year where you can get away with going all-out with glitter, but even so, I personally think less is more! That’s why I actually ended up turning the necklace around (so it was just silver triangles) and letting the glitter clutch bag be the statement piece of the outfit.

New Look also kindly sent me some of their make up to play with (I didn’t even know they did makeup) and I must say it’s lovely! The silvery grey eye shadow is perfect for creating a smokey eye (or in my case attempting to) and looks gorgeous paired with a nude lip. I also used the bronzer to give my skin a slight glow and applied the blusher over the apples of my cheeks to give them a little flush of colour.

I think makeup can definitely be used to transform the look of your ‘going out’ outfits just as much as accessories. Wearing simple winged eyeliner with a bold red lip one night and swapping it for a smokey eye and nude lip the next will give you an entirely different look.
