During normal times of the year when you might have the occasional dinner on a random Tuesday or office drinks have been organised for the end of the week, you can prepare that one outfit days in advance. But now that it's party season, after work celebrations are as frequent as your coffee breaks.
It really is the most wonderful time of the year, but the thought of heaving around a huge sack of spare clothes that Santa couldn't fit down any chimney can turn cheer into chore. What you really need is a selection of key pieces that will take you from meeting to meet up. Enter the stylish, festive and versatile Christmas collection from H&M.
Because Christmas is the one time of the year when you can wear sequins or feathers to work and no one would bat a glittery eyelid, embrace the opportunity and let your festive flag fly! But don't worry if you are not a novelty jumper kind of gal, there is something for everyone among the H&M's Christmas collection to ensure that you are never caught in a desk to dancefloor dilemma. Behold our pick of the bunch.
We would wear that gold skirt every day. Yes, it's sparkle-tastic but sparkles are not just for the disco any more. Pare it back by topping it off with a festive jumper - the only thing you will have to change when you step out the office door is your attitude. Party time!
So it turns out you can wear a sequined bow on your t-shirt and still look chic. Make like Katy Perry and wear with a razzle-dazzle skirt and do not forget that cape-jacket. It's the only one you will need this season.
One thing we tend to forget when planning our outfits for seasonal shenanigans is that it's chilly out there. This funnel neck jumper is fancy enough to wear out (especially when paired with showstopping ear chandeliers like Katy's) which makes it totally work appropriate too.
Let's be honest, no festive wardrobe would be complete without a jolly jumper, and isn't this one the cutest? You won't look out of place in any situation wearing this little number and you'll be the most stylish elf in the workshop.
H&M's Christmas collection features gorgeous garb perfect for mixing and matching - it's your one stop shop for a chic and fun-filled Christmas.
