The chance to look and feel absolutely fabulous begins now. From cool jumpsuits to the sequin slip, here’s how to put a modern spin on the LBD to ensure you’re dressed to kill this festive season
: A winning choice for women who are leg-shy, or those who want to feel supremely elegant. Add a dusting of Nuxe dry oil to your arms and run it through your hair for a glossy photo finish.
Accessorise with: pointed flats so you can dance the night away in style.
: Plush velvet + culotte silhouette = the ultimate winter one-piece. And with a delicate lace insert at the back, it’s guaranteed to flatter – and turn heads.
Accessorise with: red lips, black sandals and a cool top-knot to show off the back.

Accessorise with: heeled boots and a biker jacket () to give it that Nineties grunge appeal.
: There’s the little black dress – and then there’s this little shift style that begs attention. With a tinsel-effect design that’s perfect for shimmying on the dancefloor, you’ve got the perfect balance of classic meets contemporary.
Accessorise with: red-hot heels and a top knot for a show-stopping finish.
: An effortless route to chic, you’ll stand out for your subtle air of sophistication in a tuxedo-style all-in-one. Finish with a sleek blazer and a classic box clutch ( right).
Accessorise with: a skinny sequin scarf to add a touch of Studio 54 glamour.
: It wouldn’t be Christmas without a flash of gold. Abandon all style inhibitions and make an entrance in this trophy dress. Cinched at the waist with a ruffle detail on the chest, this spaghetti-strap style captures the spirit of the festive season.
Accessorise with: an embellished jacket for maximum impact.
