Party Ready Perfection: Part Two

Party Ready Perfection: Part Two

Forget the disco ball, there are easier ways to look the part this festive season. Buy into these chic but comfy pieces for party-ready perfection every day.

THE PARTY PANTS

This is your failsafe festive item because they’re so easy to dress up or down. A T-shirt and textured cardigan will balance out the glitziness for day. Then simply swap the cardigan for a blazer to glam up for evening. Modern cocktail wear is all about this kind of understated, effortless glamour.
