Cocktail Party: Who says you have to wear a dress to a cocktail party? Glam it up by wearing a tailored pair of trousers with a statement blouse. After all, staying comfortable while being stylish is important. Spice up the look with gorgeous accessories.

Top tip: a loose-fitting, billowy blouse allows you to eat more without showing much!

Brunch Party: Conservative does not always have to mean boring. So, give your look a fresh and youthful touch by carrying a small metallic handbag. When wearing metallics during the day, stick with a pair of neutral-toned shoes and classic jewellery pieces - you don't want to appear like a walking Christmas tree.

Dinner Party: If you're a hostess with the mostest, you definitely want to dress to impress, right? And even if you're a guest at someone's dinner party, it is only polite to be chic.

Go with muted tones if you're wearing a statement flouncy dress and highlight the look with gold-toned accessories. In this look, a cosmetic case is used as a clutch because, hey, you'll never know when you need those touch-ups.
