PParty season is officially upon us, which means the next five weeks until Christmas (yes, it really is that soon) are brimming with exciting events to get you in the festive mood. Be it an elegant soirée with friends or the annual office party, it’s the time of year that truly requires dressing to impress – which is why we’ve made this week our most glamorous yet on Style & Living. Enter British actress and star of Downton Abbey Michelle Dockery, as she lights up the stage at London jazz venue Ronnie Scott’s for our In the Moment feature. Showcasing some of the season’s most fabulous party pieces, she talks about her love of music and how her iconic role as Lady Mary has influenced her sense of style. Fashion journalist Harriet Quick, contributor to Vogue and the Financial Times, has also offered up her expertise, picking out a shimmering Limited Edition shift dress as a winning choice for all wardrobes, while Rebecca Cox of Glamour.com reveals her perfect underwear solutions to make sure you really feel your best. And for the gents, don’t miss this week’s suave velvet jacket in rich navy, which guarantees to tick all the festive boxes.
