First of all, ignore any dress codes. Or if you prefer, take note of the dress code and make a conscious effort to do the extreme opposite. Next up, take one candyfloss-inspired dress and layer it over a pair of semi-distressed, semi-fitted jeans (I swear by IDA). Then factor in the weather and throw in a luxury leather biker; iconic New York brand Schott know a thing or two about a good biker. Finally, comfort is key when it comes to a fun and long night out. Ditch the heels and channel your inner Spice Girl with a pair of flatform trainers instead. I’ll be keeping everything else to a minimum – a mixed metal watch is all I need to remind me what time I need to plan my escape route and order an Uber home (via the local curry house).
I know I’ll survive the festivities in style… and all without a sequin in sight
Beauty-wise, it seems I’ve finally cracked my winter dry skin conundrum. The Korres Milk Proteins cleanser is my new favourite discovery for removing any trace of stubborn party make-up without leaving my skin feeling dry. With the help of the Elemis Superfood Night Oil and Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Lip Repair Balm, I know I’ll survive the festivities in style… and all without a sequin in sight.
