It's that time of year again, ladies! Yes the time where all of us girlies are out to dress to impress, to up stage the office bitch and have every one's eyes peeled to the best dressed, you of course!! It's Christmas party season! Believe it or not, I rarely have Christmas work parties, doing shift work it's impossible to organise a night out for all but plenty of nights out will be had to take it's place!
It's almost like planning a wedding outfit, we all want that dress that will have people gasping and have heads turning. It's hilarious that nine times out of ten women dress up to impress each other. Women come in to a bar and every man AND woman eye her up!
The competition stakes hit even higher when it's the Christmas party because really, when do work colleagues see you at your hottest. The extra effort is really made and hair and make up appointments are all organised weeks in advance.
I have created five looks that I hope you all will like and will give you inspiration and ideas to the style and trend you are hoping to rock your Christmas party with this year!

My first look is Gatsby inspired and who can't resist a bit of 1920's glamour. The embellished detailing on this stunning black number, create's the Christmas sparkle in uber sophistication. It's a short number but the high neck compliments it. Added with ever so sleek and on trend silver barely there sandals, black jewellery, red lips and an exquisite clutch, it's a head turner!

Silver is such a cliche colour for Christmas but it has to be done! I'm not a very "matchy matchy" person but I do think that all silver sets off this dress. Platform ankle boots are an excellent way to elongate pins and compliment a skater skirt. A large diamond cuff will add extra bling as will a heavy embellished clutch. It's Christmas so the more glitz the better! I love knuckle rings, they elongate fingers and are so stylish. Apply a dark purple lipstick for a dramatic effect.

There had to be a sequin number popped into this collection! I think this deep silver number does the trick. It's low V neck is compensated with the dress's long sleeves, exuberating sophisticated sexiness. Paired with again gold barely there sandals, wandering eyes will be in for a treat. The ruby ring adds a nice pop of colour and makes a statement when worn on the index finger.

When your not into the glitz and glam of Christmas yet still want the wow factor, I think this striking cobalt dress will do the trick. Leopard print goes with just about anything and It cimpliments this dress very well. Add a diamante ring from River Island with clashing green and a pair of barely there sandals with a gold bar across the toes. This adds further glam to the outfit without going over the top.

I have left my favourite until last! This dress is stunning! Burgundy is so big right now and it compliments any skin tone. The velvet top and chiffon skater skirt create a girly look, with a statement gold panel belt to accentuate the waist. The deep neck plunge effect is the perfect detailing to dress to impress. Burgundy lips will set this dress off and will draw attention to your face. Add platform boots with over the top glitzy accessories to sail through your Christmas party in style. This dress, unfortunately is sold out but keep an eye out on the Missguided website to see when it is back in. My eyes will be glued!
