Shopping: Look the part for the party season; FASHION: You don't need a posh frock to be the belle of the Christmas ball.
Choose a sparkling top, a sexy cami, a shoulder-revealing halterneck or a glam blouse and match them with a smart skirt for dinner with the family, wear with smart trousers for after-work drinks and pair with jeans for socials with friends.
And why spend a fortune? The high street has lots of cheap and cheerful glitzy tops just waiting to be dressed up with spangly accessories and cuddly shrugs and capes
