December is the time to put a bit of sparkle into your going-out gear and give glitter a moment under the mistletoe. This year, statement sleeves and flounces are everywhere, and nothing says winter glamour like a cosy layer of fake fur. We've put together the ultimate Christmas capsule wardrobe covers a lot of bases from sedate shindigs with the in-laws to accessories that will make a colourful statement at the office Christmas bash to some options for men in search of inspiration. Mix and match but the main thing is don't hold back - tis the season to sparkle and shine.
Clothes - dresses (and tops and coats) to impress
Accessories - from big bold jewellery to clutch bags and sparkly tights
Shoes - stand out in sequinned heels or yellow stilettos
