Christmas party season is in full swing. I even went out last night with a few of my work colleagues for a little bit of a festive shindig - Followers of me on snapchat will have possibly seen the snaps! (xo_Leannemarie is my username) December is probably the busiest month of the year when it comes to socialising and parties, so when George at Asda contacted me to see if I wanted to put together a outfit and share my christmas party tips with you all I said yes and headed off to their website to have a browse!
You can never go wrong with a LBD in my opinion. If you look at my wardrobe the majority of its contents in black. I personally find Black clothes easy to wear and if you want to inject a bit of colour you can do so with other items of clothing or accessories. The dress I chose is a lovely tiered style bejeweled skater dress* The fabric is really lightweight and flowy making it a good dress if you are a little self conscious of your tum, it skims over all the right areas! Note that it does have an elasticated waistband so you can eat lots of festive treats should you choose to do so! The bejeweled neckline adds that bit of festive sparkle making it a perfect christmas party dress. The best part? It will cost you less than £20! £18 to be exact! What a great deal!
#Georgepartytip #1 Wear something you are comfortable in. Plan ahead and make your choice based on whether you will be consuming a lot of party food/christmas dinners!

We have to be realisitic, it is December and unless you are a person with super powers which means you dont feel the cold, you will have to layer up. George offer a nice range of blazers to keep your outfit looking very smart. Perfect if you plan to go straight from the taxi to the party. Alternatively or you can be like me and just head for the finishing straight with a warm coat, just incase you need to spend more than 2 minutes outside in the cold! This camel pea coat* is gorgeous and works really well against the all black outfit. It's still smart enough looking to keep the outfit looking polished, but still keeps the chills at bay. It's priced at £25 which is a really good deal for a a jacket of this style. The quality is lovely and I've been complimented a lot on it!
#Georgepartytips #2 Keep warm. No one one wants
frostbite the flu after their Christmas shindig!
I decided to accessorize the look with a simple pair of strappy heels - not particularly weather appropriate but they look good don't they! I never need to carry too much with me when I attend a party so a small bag does the trick for all the essentials. You can go one of two ways when accessorizing. If you have details on your outfit such as patterns or embellishments, keep the bag and shoes rather simple. If you opt for an outfit which takes more of a block colour route, amp it up with brightly coloured shoes or a embellished handbag.
#Georgepartytips #3 Think carefully about your accessories, make sure they compliment your outfit.
