Deborah’s Party-Season Essentials

Edited By

How do our editors get through the party season in style? We asked them to curate a list of the 14 items, from fashion through beauty to homeware, that will be helping them get into the festive spirit between now and 25th December. Here’s what’s on fashion editor-at-large Deborah’s wish list…

“A colour-pop cashmere sweater is a great year-round piece to have in your wardrobe, but especially at party season. I’ll be using this one to dress down more high-octane pieces.”
“A statement skirt that I can’t wait to wear this season, and for many more party seasons to come. It would also look great paired with a crisp white shirt.”
“Black sequin kitten-heel slingbacks will be perfect with a black tuxedo. Understated sparkle + kitten heel = glamorous comfort.”
“Nothing beats Hourglass’s waterproof black liquid liner for creating feline eyes that won’t budge on a night out.”
“A chunky gold necklace is always a useful piece to have in your accessories arsenal. This will look great with anything and everything.”
“I love the soft faux-fur of this mini clutch mixed with the gold-bow hardware.”
“There’s nothing sexier than a crisp dress shirt and I love this organza one from WNU. There’s just enough coverage at the front and it reveals just enough at the back. Wear with a black tuxedo or pared-down black jeans.”
“The colour of the season is silver, and these ankle boots will liven up any outfit. The perfect heel height and the perfect amount of bling.”
“I love a statement earring, and these gold hoops will make an impact day or night.”
“I love leopard print and I love a ’90s slip dress – they are so easy to wear. Pop it on with simple heels or boots and a tuxedo jacket on top to finish the look. Super-cool, relaxed elegance.”
“This is my favourite scent. I wear it all year long and it’s a heady tuberose that works especially well in winter. This little refill bottle is perfect for popping in my clutch during party season.”
“The perfect set of three different-sized platters for serving the most delicious dishes at my dinner parties.”
“I love serving a fun cocktail at my festive dinners. These multi-coloured glasses add a touch of individuality to the evening.”
