Monthly Style Feature: The Festive Edit

With the festive season in full swing and the invites coming in thick and fast, it's all too easy for a sense of panic to set in as we face the 'what am I going to wear?' dilemma... but never fear, our fashion contributor and stylist Jo Sawkins is back at The Mother Hub with her top tips for your December party wardrobe! What with outfits for work Christmas do's, mums' nights out and the ever-important Christmas day look, there's a lot to think about (not to mention the present buying and turkey roasting)! So here at The Mother Hub, we like to take the pressure off and do the searching for you, so that your outfits work for more than one occasion and are not just a one hit wonder! Mix and match these looks for a fool proof festive wardrobe - just add your party hat!

Twinkle Toes 

A great pair of shoes can sometimes be all you need to take your look from zero to hero! There's something chic about keeping your outfit simple and teaming it with a stand out pair of shoes. Whether killer heels are your thing or you're a fancy flats fan, we've rounded up the best out there to complete your look and have you walking that bit taller.

Party tops are so effortless, and can really be your go-to festive fix when you're stuck for outfit inspiration. Sequins, lace, clean lines and shine are all winners and will have you party ready in a flash.

Fancy Pants

Trophy trousers and statement skirts are very on-trend right now, and rightly so - they're fab! Team with simple cashmere, a crisp white shirt or an oversized knit for an 'I just threw this on' look that screams style. Party wear doesn't always have to be about the dress, so opt for a festive mash up and go bold .
