 For A Cool Party At Home...

Just Relax

Set the mood with a fun ensemble and pops of pink. Enjoy yourself and your guests will follow suit.

Plan Your Outfit in Advance

Pick one or two colours and play them up, and don’t feel you have to stick to a traditional “holiday” palette: frosty gems and bold prints serve as a great foundation.  

Keep it Simple

No one has a good time if the hostess is running back and forth from the kitchen. Spend more time with your guests and order in if cooking is too cumbersome.

A Few Tips For Your First Formal Dinner At Home...

Work Your House Like a Pro
Think about flow for a party: how guests enter your home, where they can gather and converse in comfort. Create a bar station and set hors d’oeuvres on low tables so they can mingle and nibble with ease.

Dress The Part
Pull out all the stops and go for an opulent look that’s effervescent and eye catching. A luxe drape dress, statement necklace and faux-gems draw all eyes on you.

Play The Name Game
To help remember the names of new guests, repeat them as soon as you’ve been introduced. Share information when making introductions, such as “This is Sue, she just came back from a hiking trip in the Andes” to spark a conversation.

 

Black & White keys

Festive dressing in a conservative office can be tricky to navigate, so stick to tailored pieces and have fun with accessories.

Party at The Office, Nice But...

Go Neutral
Walk the line between appropriate and party ready in a black and white palette that’s sharp and graphic.

Add A Festive Touch
Enliven the high-contrast look with a touch of garnet on lips and fingernails, and add sparkle via accessories with a diamanté detail.

Don't Show Too Much Skin
Sheer fabrics are a trend, but in a conservative office it’s smart to err on the side of modesty. Choose undergarments that match your skin tone for a polished effect.

 

Jewel Box

Creative workplaces call for a touch of free-spirited, bohemian charm. Pull out the deep jewel-tones, ethnic patterns and warm metallics.

Show Your Creativity, Make A Statement

Show Your True Colours

Complete Your Look with A Cool Twist
A gold shoe telegraphs confidence while gold-dusted fingertips are a giddy touch for a party.

Temper Your Toasts
Office parties provide a natural entrée to socialize with your boss and your co-workers, but limit your alcohol intake and alternate bevvies with sparkling water so you can stay in control.

Enjoy The Ride
Sleek baggage and designer electronics ensure smooth sailing — and that you always look pulled together and completely polished, in any time zone.

Fly with High Maintenance

Don't Be Afraid of Heights
A chunkier heel makes long flights more manageable than tottering on spiky stilettos in the departure lounge.

High Maintenance
A Navajo-style knit sweater and skinnies look effortless: top with a chunky knit hat and you can brave any climate on arrival, or over-zealous air conditioning in flight.

Fashion Flying Mantra
Stars never skimp when it comes to the details. Luxe touches such as a gold watch and high-fashion carry-on in an iconic print elevates a laid-back ensemble.
