The party season is here!

With it comes a potential mind field of party dressing issues from what to wear for the right occasion, to finding that perfect jacket, to not flaking in your heels half way through the night cos your feet hurt so much!

The best thing about this year is that party dressing is back big style!

From sequins, to fake fur, LBD’s and fringing it’s time to freshen up your party outfits with a bit of style and a whole lotta schizzle!

So if your December calendar is quickly filling up with Christmas parties, from cheesy office gatherings (the kind you’d rather skip!) to black-tie dinners and all-night New Year’s Eve parties. ’Tis the season for Christmas glitz, glamour, and three-dimensional sparkle, especially after a few years of “less is more” party dressing. If you need tips on how to dress for a party, then I would recommend you read Julien MacDonald’s article for elle.com where he breaks it down sequin by sequin - Julien MacDonald’s guide to glam dressing . But if you would rather add something new to your wardrobe that sparkles like a disco ball, then read my shopping choices of what you should be buying right now for the party season.

my headband obsession

When I was little I had long dark hair and I never wanted to wear anything in it, not hairbands, not clips and I didn't even like putting it up. Now as a fully grown adult I have rediscovered headbands and could not be happier. Now banish all thoughts of anything remotely twee ans school-like and, instead, see them as an instant, no-faff way of making no effort with your hair whatsoever, while still looking fabulous. Oh, don’t worry, I’m about to elaborate…

It covers greasy hair, looks like you’ve made an effort and is also an excellent adversary to the distressing phenomenon that is Summer Sweating. Nobody wants their hair in their face when they’re simply trying to get from the bus to the office, walking to do the school run or rushing around the supermarket (delete as appropriate) without sweating through their clothes in a heatwave. A hairband can give your forehead the room it deserves, free of fringe, and also ensures you don’t end up resembling a wet dog at the beach.

Go for something embellished, printed, colourful, something that does make a statement otherwise you might end up looking like a 'Sloane Ranger'. 

Anthropologie is my favourite purveyor of hairbands, largely due to the sheer choice on offer. There’s everything from simple, neat styles to some that are slightly more... extra. Think embellishment, beads and beautiful colours– which mostly sit atop my head. Independent London-based brand Emin & Paul also has some lovely options, from polka dots to colourful turban-styles. And the high street, too, is full of hair-fixing saviours, from ASOS to Uterque. You’ll have so much spare time, you won’t know what to do with yourself. Plus, your hair will look great.

shake those pompoms!

Head pompom!

Head pompom!

Within a season a micro trend often comes along that's fun, frivolous and plays on our inner child. So while I'm feeling optimistic about the warmer weather, let's jump board the sweetie train and embrace the colourful pompom into our stylish lives.

The best way to wear this trend is through accessories as they will change up any outfit and are relatively in expensive. Some high end designers have added pompoms to their shoes, bags and jewellery and where they lead, the high-street follows.

So whilst these Dolce and Gabbana pompom shoes aren't exactly practical, these ones from Glamorous at ASOS certainly are!

I am currently obsessed with finding the right clutch bag with pompoms on it to take on holiday with me. But with so much choice it's hard to make my mind up.

A fab statement necklace is he bets way to show case this trend. This one is from Zara for £17.99, it will see you through the Summer and can be worn in the daytime or dresses up for the evening - everyone's a winner!

You can even have the mutli-coloured ball's in your home -

Or if you are crafty, there is nothing stopping you from making your own trend inspired pompom adornments.

No one can be in a bad mood in the presence of a pompom which is why I am encouraging you to go forth and purchase something now! Share with me what you have brought in the comments below or on social media.

How to ROCK the rucksack!

Not just any old rucksack, The Rucksack, Burberry and preferably monogrammed. Yep I've fallen hook, line & sinker for Burberry's latest must have accessories piece for SS16. First sent down the catwalks, this bag was instantly a hit.

You can get it monogrammed with your name, initials or anything you want at the Burberry Store in London.

You might of already spotted the SS16 accessory on the backs of some style icons and it's making me need it even more! But at a price tag of £795, I'm not sure I will splashing out anytime soon!
