Whether you're eagerly preparing for December's festivities or simply wrapping up that work/study/intern life for another year, there's no doubt your social calendar is filling up fast. Ahead, our round-up of winning outfits that'll see you through to 2017 in style.
Office Christmas party
The annual end-of-year office event is a great way to network, get to know your peers a little better and celebrate the year that was. However, just because you're off-duty doesn't mean your outfit is too. Choose an ensemble that's fun and true to your personal style, but won't attract side-eyes from superiors. The plunging body-con? Best left at home.
With the end of the year comes the end of another semester and, for some of us, a graduation invitation. If that's you, congratulations! Opt for something that's comfortable, timeless and makes you feel your best. An elegant cocktail dress and block heels is a failsafe combo, and will let you sit, stand and take a million photos without the dreaded #outfitregret you'll otherwise feel after hours of wear.
Whether it's a lowkey dinner with the fam or drinks to cap off the last working week, you'll want this outfit to be versatile and stylish. A black jumpsuit or twin-set is the perfect blank canvas, taking you from desk to dinner and beyond with a simple switch of accessories.
No matter where December 25 takes you, today is the day for comfort. Whether its a long lunch that becomes a lazy dinner, a relaxing day out or a cosy night in, today's ensemble should let you eat, lounge and travel without digging, pinching or squeezing. Today is not the day for squeezing.
Nothing beats Boxing Day sales, except an outfit that lets you slay Boxing Day sales. If you're brave enough to take on high street, choose loose layers and comfortable shoes you can slip in and out of with ease as you battle your way through the dressing rooms. Staying at home? Same rules apply. Loose, carefully-considered layers are the official uniform of unofficial 'Leftovers Day'.
New Years Eve
The biggest party night of the year is basically a free pass to pull out all sartorial stops. Choose a bold, directional dress that stands out in a sea of LBDs, or opt for luxe co-ords in statement shades or finishes.
New Years Day
Whether it's brunch with friends or a restorative day at home, start 2017 on a stylish note. Soft separates with a sports-luxe slant will keep you comfortable and effortlessly on-trend, even if you're feeling a little less put-together on the inside.
