Top Tips To Look and Feel Amazing at Christmas


Boden Velvet Blazer


In the run up to Christmas, here are my top tips for looking fabulous:

A sequin jacket gives instant glamour


  1. Plan your outfits for the key holiday dates and any pre- holiday events.Velvet, satin, silk and lace are brilliant fabrics you’ll wear a lot more. This Boden velvet jacket’s good to go day or night.
  2. Separates will give you loads more outfit options than a sequined dress. A sequined top like the one I’m wearing gives instant glam.  A lacy top can be worn pretty much all year round. Go for comfort and fit above all else!
  3. Dress up decent black jeans or trousers  with satin, silk, velvet, fur and heels and dress down again (smart not slobbish) with soft jersey, cashmere sweaters and cardigans, chunky knits and flats.
  4. Wear interesting tops and necklaces when sitting at the table .The person sitting opposite you will appreciate it but go easy on the cleavage!
  5. A  manicure, pedicure, facial and a visit to the hairdressers will get you glowing.
  6. Prepare for stress at Christmas  by taking time out for yourself. For me, this means walking and time for meditation and relaxation, especially leading up to the big day.
  7. Don’t take on too much. If you’re expecting a full house, delegate. People are usually happy to pitch in. Enjoy Christmas -don’t just endure it!
