4. Skirt ensemble; full skirt or pencil skirt.

5. Date night look; sparkle and stand out, it is the festive season after all.

6. Christmas Day; go with the colours of cream/winter white, gold and burgundy/wine. Burgundy on the lips is a good statement lip but only if burgundy is not near the face or it looks too busy.

7. Out shopping; go with an all white look.

8. Christmas Eve; grown up glamour. Either a dress or smart pants but make it something that oozes confidence.

9. Smart casual; jeans, flat shoes, blouse/shirt and a blazer/jacket.

10. Go with a high waisted pant and blouse look for a bit of retro.

11. New Years Eve; long skirt and top, heels and accessories.

12. New Years Day; Maxi Dress.
