Fashion tips with Delila Boukkaz

Q: What are your tips for party wear this season?

A: Most of us have already started our quest for the perfect party dress. Whether you wish to treat yourself to a new outfit or update last year’s evening wear, here are my tips to sparkle this party season.

Dresses are our first love. When it comes to dresses you should choose the one that is the most flattering for you. An A-line dress is great if you are bottom or hips-heavy. A wrap dress would suit women with weight around the middle or with a full bust. Those with a petite figure need to go for a length above the knee and a bright colour. If you are flat chested go for structure and details. Above all, choose the style that you look and feel good in.

The little black dress is this season’s star — it is simple and effortlessly chic. Wear it with a pearl necklace or gloves, bracelet, and statement shoes.

You can also opt for a skirt or trousers. I particularly like the tuxedo suit — it is chic, modern, and irresistibly elegant. Wear it with a clutch bag, heels, and a blouse. You can add some drama with a top hat.

Accessories will give an instant lift to your look and update last year’s outfits. Whether you are having a dinner party or lunch gathering, opt for a clutch bag for its chic appeal and convenience. You will turn heads with glitzy heels and statement jewellery. Add sparkle and drama with gloves, hats, and scarves.

If you are attending a lunch party, go for a casual dress and team it with patent boots, or choose a blouse with either a skirt or trousers. Add a hint of sparkle with some jewellery.
