As if the thought of your neverending lists of Christmas presents, food, decorations and things-to-do wasn't stressful enough, along comes party season. Sure, this sounds fun and like a perfect way to let your hair down at the end of a busy year, but when you're expected to shop for a whole new wardrobe for all of your social events (on top of everything else!) it can get even more overwhelming - and expensive.
The solution? A party season 'capsule wardrobe', made up of a small collection of highly-edited, versatile, festive and interchangeable pieces. Buy one main piece and change it up with accessories, or buy them all and wear them over and over again as part of your day and night closets.
I've chosen three star items that will carry you through every event, from a casual Christmas Day to a special New Year's Eve, and included just a couple of jackets, clutches and shoes that you can reuse for every outfit. So thrifty!
