We headed to MATCHESFASHION.COM’s gorgeous townhouse in central London for a party outfit consultation. When it comes to party wear, we’d say avoid the sequins- stick to classic shapes and styles that you can dress up with fun accessories. The result? Timeless party wear you will love forever.
Laura and I have a very different approach to playing dress up. This has a lot to do with our different figures and colouring, Laura is petite and olive skinned, where as I am tall, curvy and blonde. She loves a bright hue whilst I would reserve it for an accessory (mainly because I am afraid of looking like Malibu Barbie). I love a good bit of tailoring where Laura feels it swamps her frame. One thing we both agree on is that a good party piece will last a lifetime. You won’t wear it everyday, so it’ll last decades longer than a pair of jeans. Whatever you spend your cash on you should make sure it’s something you can see yourself loving ten years on.
