December. The month on everyone’s radar once summer has drawn to a close. Evenings get darker and calendar’s start to fill up with social events – all of which require considered outfit planning. Whether it’s a Christmas party, drinks with friends, an after-work soiree or all of the above that you’ve got coming up, there’s a styling directive to suit. We asked fashion blogger, Victoria, from In The Frow, for outfit inspiration, and she’s put together her four favourite looks from the AW15 collection.


The jumpsuit has fast become an eveningwear icon, continuing to hold its place in any credible partywear edit for AW15. This season sees it take on a modern guise that’s polished and uncompromising, and designs range from all-over sequin embellishment to sleek, one-colour alternatives. Victoria’s choice – the Dillon – combines a structured silhouette, internal bodice and a feminine peplum hem to bring detail to the all-black design.

With a host of high-profile evening events undoubtedly stealing the spotlight in your calendar this month, make time to consider those slightly more casual affairs that still require a great outfit. When it comes to dressing for this kind of evening (think drinks with friends, a night at the theatre etc.) elevating typically casual separates is the way to go. Victoria contrasts sleek leather with a touch of sparkle and wraps up in an oversized shearling aviator to create a look that’s effortlessly cool, perfect for now and hints at the festive season.

For a look that’s altogether festive, a statement party dress is the winning option and Victoria opts for the sleeveless Rosario shift to embrace the season. Fully fringed and cut to a straight silhouette, it nods to the glamour of the 1920s and makes the perfect dancefloor companion. Save it for the ultimate Christmas celebration – it needs little by way of accessory so it’s easy to wear and will steal the focus of your look.

Top tip: "I adore wearing silver with navy; the two colours are a fantastic combination."

Nothing spells power dressing like masculine tailoring and, since sharply-cut separates have now well and truly earned their evening status, it’s the perfect way to make a lasting impression this party season. A full suit, like this Alexis jacket and trousers, will command attention, and when styled with a velvet top, will take an on-trend turn. Add considered final touches like a slash of red lipstick and high-shine accessories for a polished all-round look.

Top tip: “Nothing says pulled-together and sophisticated like a trouser suit.”
