Perfect Party Attire with Marks and Spenser’s Matching Fashionistas Challenge

Christmas and New Years is known as the Party Season either the work Christmas party, partying with friends and family for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day or the ultimate party on New Years Eve to bring in that new year. The question always remains what should I wear? Whats on trend? What colours will compliment each other

We were asked to take part in Marks and Spenser’s Matching Fashionistas Challenge. I had to choose an outfit for Hayden then find an outfit for myself that which complements the outfit you have chosen for Hayden. I had quite a lot of choices to choose from which was perfect but we had to choose a seasonal theme which made it even more fun.
Within fashion the changing seasons come with different colours. 
This year we were looking at
Winter Whites
The age old controversy of wearing whites… yeah throw that out the window. Whites pales, creams, naturals, ivory and silver are in.
Very Berry
A friendly face in the colour pallet is the deep dark shades of berry. 
Dark Drama
You can never go wrong with black, brings sophistication, glamour and tonnes of womanly charm.
The checked tartan look is a must this season even with a bit of a textured material. Earthy brown, creams even though in some red and green. Perfect.
Dark Drama - M & S

We opted for the Dark Drama style for our party outfit.
