Christmas is just around the corner, and even though Christmas parties may be off the agenda for many thanks once again to Covid-19, it doesn't mean you can't get into the festive spirit with some winter style.

This year you’re spoilt for choice in the fashion department, with cute cocktail dresses, chic separates and fab accessories to suit everyone’s style.

These are the seven key trends everyone needs to know about this festive season…

1. Babydoll dresses

With puff sleeves and a short, voluminous skirt, babydoll dresses in pastel and candy colours are the prettiest way to do party dressing. Add 70s style platform heels and statement earrings and you’re ready to go.


2. Statement blouses
