Shopping: Look the part for the party season; FASHION: You don't need a posh frock to be the belle of the Christmas ball.

LOOKING for an alternative to the posh frock for a night out on the town or Christmas with the family? These days parties are as much about blending dressing up and down as simply popping on your little black dress.

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
