Not sure what to do or what to wear? Rule 101: don’t shag your boss. Second, find a fire outfit to make sure you’re more lit than a Christmas tree. We’ve rounded up this quick guide to save you from those “I have nothing to wear” for the office Christmas party mini breakdowns.
Office to bar
Let’s face it, just because we’re not Bey doesn’t mean we can’t pull off a fire mini <span class=”woR”>dress</span><span class=”woD”>A dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment).</span>. When your office Christmas party is all about the drinks, get yourself a figure-hugging dress if you want to show off your curves. After all, this is your chance before all the Christmas food and binge-eating commences over the Christmas period. Opt for a Bardot style to keep things classic or choose a blazer dress to add an extra edge without over-revealing. These sort of dresses are a sure fire way to suit wherever the night takes you: Consider them good dresses to make bad stories in.
Desk drinking before heading to town? Step away from the emails…Anything you send now will be like a drunk text but 100% worse. You can avoid a f*ckboy… Colleagues, not so much.
The free bar
If you have one of those work Christmas dos where it’s a free bar and you just know you’re going to end up a little (or a lot) worse for wear, then this is the outfit for you. Stay clear of playsuits and <span class=”woR”>jumpsuit</span><span class=”woD”>Jumpsuit originally referred to the functional one-piece garments used by parachuters/skydivers, but has come to be used as a common term for any one-piece garment with sleeves and legs.</span>
s that will only end up testing your patience when you’ve officially broken the seal and, let’s be honest, there’s nothing worse than having to completely strip off every time you need a wee. Plus, there’s only so many times you can ask ‘can you undo my zip for me’ to a random gal waiting in the queue. Co-ords keep things fresh when everyone’s turning up to the party in dresses.
And if you’re one of the lucky ones with a free bar, that guy from accounts that you think is weird, who suddenly looks cute 27 bottles of prosecco in, is not the one hun – run away.
Black tie event
Got a black tie event? Congrats, babe, someone’s doing well! Don’t dig out your old prom dress or ball gown. You want to look like an absolute boss babe whilst still looking like you’re ready to down shots at the bar with your co-workers. Try the ultimate trend for the party season: It’s all about soft liquid metallics and lashing of sequins. Maxi and midi dresses are often a little more restrictive than a playsuit or mini dress, so don’t feel like you need to keep your hemlines below your knees just because it’s a posh do.
But remember, just because your boss is dancing on the table, doesn’t mean you should! Another rule 101, stick to the actual ground when you want to have a bit of dance off – especially at a black-tie event. You can thank us later.
The plus one
Your boyfriend has invited you to his work’s do. You need to look seriously hot whilst also looking respectable enough to gain some good reputation with his co-workers and bosses. This is the time to add-to-bag a jumpsuit. They give you shape, length and also a bit of integrity in case you end up having a few too many. Vertical striped styles add some height even if you’re perfectly petite. Clash your textures with a faux fur jacket to add more glitz and you’re good to go. It’s really that simple.
…and one word of warning. If you think karaoke is a genius idea when you’re absolutely smashed: think again, babe. Remember the scene in Bridget Jones when she’s wearing a tinsel crown, a cigarette in her hand and she’s in full-on singing mode, then suddenly Hugh Grant walks in? Don’t be that person. There will be no Hugh Grant casually passing by – only your boss. No one wants the office walk of shame when Monday rolls around.

Eat, drink and be Missguided. You’re welcome, babe.

ASOS:THE SPACE-AGE COAT WE’VE TAKEN A SHINE TO

Dreaming of outerwear that will catapult your winter line-up into another world? Look no further than an intergalactic metallic coat. Tapping into FW18’s futuristic trend, (not to mention the space-race theme of Ryan Gosling’s latest flick, First Man), high-shine outerwear is here to help you boldly go where no trendsetter has gone before. Here are three ways to wear it now.
Seen at
There was an astronomical amount of tinfoil-inspired outerwear this season, from Sies Marjan to Calvin Klein. German designer Philipp Plein sent his models out in a faux snowstorm, serving sporty-space realness via high-shine metallics like this silver puffer <span class=”woR”>jacket</span><span class=”woD”>A jacket is a mid stomach length garment for the upper body. A jacket typically has sleeves, and fastens in the front or slightly on the side. A jacket is generally lighter, tighter-fitting, and less insulating than a <span class=”woR”>coats</span><span class=”woD”>A coat is a garment worn by both men and women,[1] for warmth or fashion. Coats typically have long sleeves and are open down the front, closing by means of buttons, zippers, hook-and-loop fasteners, toggles, a belt, or a combination of some of these. Other possible features include collars, shoulder straps and hoods.</span>
, which is outerwear. Some jackets are fashionable, while others serve as protective clothing.</span>. If ever there was a way to wear a sports bra in winter, this is it.
Seen on
A metallic coat needn’t always be so extra it has you reaching for your sunglasses – this street-styler shows it can be a laid-back look as well. Houston, you won’t have a problem fitting this into your everyday vibe. Just throw it on over your weekend shopping outfit as you hop into town – plus, it’ll keep you extra safe, too, thanks to its reflective properties. Win-win.
Try it on
Wanna try it yourself? We’ve got just the jacket. Padded for extra warmth and blessed with a very practical hood, you’ll feel on point in this holographic beauty – even in the harshest throws of winter. Try it out with straight-leg <span class=”woR”>jeans</span><span class=”woD”>Jeans are trousers typically made from denim or dungaree cloth. Often the term “jeans” refers to a particular style of pants, called “blue jeans,” which were invented by Jacob Davis in 1871[1] and patented by Davis and Levi Strauss on May 20, 1873. Originally designed for cowboys and miners, jeans became popular in the 1950s among teenagers, especially members of the greaser subculture.</span> and a graphic tee. Warning: aliens may mistake you for their mothership, but it comes with the territory when you’re serving an out-of-this-world look.

MISSGUIDED:make your party looks party harder

The weather is RUBBISH, and we are feeling a little bit deflated. The only remedy for the December blues is to fill up your diary and keep yourself busy ’til <span class=”woR”>Christmas</span><span class=”woD”>Christmas or Christmas Day (Old English: Crīstesm?sse, meaning “Christ’s Mass”) is an annual festival commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ,[7][8] observed most commonly on December 25[4][9][10] as a religious and cultural celebration among billions of people around the world.</span>, right? If you’re going on a night out, planning your outfit is as easy as throwing on an LBD and some heels. But, nailing a daytime party look is far more difficult. To help you out, and give you some major inspo, we’ve rounded up our #babesofmissguided to give you all the daytime party #outfitgoals:
Co-Ord
A co-ord is the perfect addition to your <span class=”woR”>wardrobe</span><span class=”woD”>A wardrobe is a standing closet used for storing clothes. Many people[who?] argue that wardrobes are different in use and style of closets, but they were created by the French to be used as a closet. The earliest wardrobe was a chest, and it was not until some degree of luxury was attained in regal palaces and the castles of powerful nobles that separate accommodation was provided for the apparel of the great. The name of wardrobe was then given to a room in which the wall-space was filled with closets and lockers, the drawer being a comparatively modern invention[citation needed]. From these cupboards and lockers the modern wardrobe, with its hanging spaces, sliding shelves and drawers, evolved slowly.</span> – Wear the pieces together for a statement look, or separately for more cost-per-wear. Wear a skirt, oversized jacket and crop top for autumn, then upgrade your skirt for matching trousers when the temperature drops.
Underwear as Outerwear
Underwear as outerwear is a trend that’s going nowhere in AW18. A lace bralet with shorts or a <span class=”woR”>skirt</span><span class=”woD”>A skirt is a tube- or cone-shaped garment that hangs from the waist or hips and covers all or part of the legs. The hemline of skirts can vary from micro to floor-length and can vary according to cultural conceptions of modesty and aesthetics as well as the wearer’s personal taste, which can be influenced by such factors as fashion and social context. Most skirts are self-standing garments, but some skirt-looking panels may be part of another garment such as leggings, shorts, and swimsuits.</span> is a perfect nighttime look. But, layering a silk shirt on top gives ultimate sophisticated vibes, to slay in the day.
Shirt Dress
A shirt dress is the ultimate smart-casual look – So it’s perfect for a daytime party outfit. Wear oversized, with chunky boots for cool-girl vibes. Layer this with a casual black jacket and some oversized hoop earrings – Transitional season, sorted.
Midi Dress
A midi dress can be dressed up for the ultimate night-time event. But, a long-sleeved, knitted dress can bridge the gap between occasion and daytime dressing – Keeping you warm whilst still looking dressy. Wear with simple jewellery and perspex heels.
Jumpsuit
Jumpsuits are for every season and every occasion, so they’re the perfect look for a daytime party. They’re the instant outfit your wardrobe needs, so go plain or patterned and wear with barely-there heels and accessorise with simple jewellery.

ASOS:HOW TO WEAR 70s DRESSES NOW

The 70s is one of our fave decades. It brought us Queen, bell-bottom flares, Charlie’s Angels, disco sequins… need we go on? It also gave us some seriously good dress options that are mainstays in our closets today. To celebrate our love of the free-spirited era, here are five key dress <span class=”woR”>style</span><span class=”woD”>Style is a manner of doing or presenting things, especially a fashionable one.</span> and how to wear them now.
That’s all folk
Floaty <span class=”woR”>dress</span><span class=”woD”>A dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment).</span> in folksy patchworks, paisley prints and homespun embroideries were everywhere in the 70s thanks to the peace-lovin’ hippies. These frocks are of course perf for vay-cay but, as this street-styler proves, if you swap in some knee-high <span class=”woR”>boots</span><span class=”woD”>A boot is a type of footwear and a specific type of shoe. Most boots mainly cover the foot and the ankle, while some also cover some part of the lower calf. Some boots extend up the leg, sometimes as far as the knee or even the hip. Most boots have a heel that is clearly distinguishable from the rest of the sole, even if the two are made of one piece.</span> they can totally work for cold weather, too.
Jump day
The turtleneck jumper dress is another treasure we can thank the 70s for. What would we do without this cosy style to slip into on those chilly mornings? This street-styler is giving us major inspo to make it a modern affair by wearing with wide-leg jeans and white boots. Carry a perspex bag for extra style points.
Safari park
The safari trend that ruled through the 70s was all about chunky belts, patch pockets and neutral shades. Easy to pull off yet totally put together at the same time, a belted dress with this sort of vibe is ideal for your 9-5 line-up. We especially love this sleek leather version. A+.
Flower hour
A 70s round-up wouldn’t be complete without a mention of flower power. Petal prints bring an instant uplift to your 24/7 style, espesh on a floaty silhouette. A dark iteration is a good option for winter – add a leather jacket and lace-up boots for an 80s-era punk mash-up.
Heavy shifting
The decade wasn’t all floor-skimming hems and hippy-dippy details. The early 70s also loved slick shift dresses, too. A white iteration is an on-point option for those obsessed with a more pared-back style. Just add black tights and high boots to counter those winter winds.

To help you get ready for the celebrations, Nuria guides you through the best of the best from H&M and H&M Home – either to give to someone else or, even better, to yourself.

1. FOR EVENINGS OUT
“This is the perfect <span class=”woR”>blouse</span><span class=”woD”>A blouse is a loose-fitting upper garment that was formerly worn by workmen, peasants, artists, women and children.[1] It is typically gathered at the waist or hips (by a waistband or belt) so that it hangs loosely (“blouses”[2]) over the wearer’s body.</span> to wear to any dinner party! I love its deep and rich color and that it’s both so elegant and so comfortable. It’s a great gift this time of year to wear at all events with family and friends.”

2. FOR EVENINGS IN
“There’s not much to say about this present – this blanket is perfect for movie nights at home with popcorn and cuddling up on the sofa. It matches the color scheme of my house perfectly too.”

3. FOR YOUR HOME
“I love the <span class=”woR”>vintage</span><span class=”woD”>Vintage, in winemaking, is the process of picking grapes and creating the finished product (see Harvest (wine)). A vintage wine is one made from grapes that were all, or primarily, grown and harvested in a single specified year.</span> feel of this H&M Home vase.

NURIA ON…

THE MOST MEMORABLE GIFT
“I’m so fascinated by astrology, and my favorite gift came last year when my boyfriend gave me a telescope. But there was a catch! The telescope wasn’t put together and instead I had to follow a lot of funny instructions to find the seven different pieces hidden around the house, our car, and in other places in Barcelona. It was really fun – and I love my telescope!”

GIVING OR RECEIVING PRESENTS
“Giving! I get very shy when I open a present because everyone is looking at me! I prefer to give presents, especially the ones I know will be the hits of the year!”

NURIA’S FAVORITE…

CHRISTMAS MOVIE… Home Alone

CHRISTMAS SONG… A Frank Sinatra classic: Silent Night

CHRISTMAS FOOD… Baked fish with sliced potatoes and onions

CHRISTMAS TRADITION… We put a shoe under the Christmas tree, so in the morning we find it filled with our favorite candies. I don’t like candy so I usually get a bag of cashews instead!

ASOS:STYLE LESSONS FROM THE CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is our new Netflix obsession. OK, at first we were shook by how scary it is in comparison to the original 90s version. But then we quickly fell in love with the show’s sinister storyline, intriguing characters, underlying social messages and – of course – its bewitching style. From headbands to gothic lace, ‘Brina and her crew serve up some serious <span class=”woR”>fashion</span><span class=”woD”>Fashion is a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, body piercing, or furniture. Fashion is a distinctive and often habitual trend in the style in which a person dresses. It is the prevailing styles in behaviour and the newest creations of textile designers.</span> inspo for our winter repertoire. Here are five key trends that will bring the magic to your look, stat.
Hairbands are our new hero
TBF, Sabrina’s hairband should have its own shoutout in the show’s credits as one of the main characters. Whether she’s hanging with her human friends or battling the Weird Sisters at the Academy of the Unseen Arts, her headband is ever-present. If your outfit is giving you more trouble than Batibat the sleep demon, this is one <span class=”woR”>accessories</span><span class=”woD”>A fashion accessory is an item used to contribute, in a secondary manner, to the wearer’s outfit, often used to complete an outfit and chosen to specifically complement the wearer’s look.</span> that magically pulls it all together. Plus, it gets extra points for banishing a bad hair day, too.
Lace summons the drama
There are lots of lace looks throughout the show to help bring the gothic realness. Our fave is when Sabrina wears her mother’s wedding <span class=”woR”>dress</span><span class=”woD”>A dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment).</span> to her friend’s Halloween party (and her dark baptism, which she pops to afterwards – as you do). Even though Halloween is over, we might just cast a spell with a similar style at one of our party-season soirees.
A slinky slip dress casts a spell
Although the new version of Sabrina has none of the lols of the Melissa Joan Hart version, it does have some nice 90s fashion moments, like the old show. Take the slip dress ’Brina magically changes into at her dark baptism. While the scene had us on the edge of our seats, we must admit the oh-so-pretty frock did distract us for a sec. We smell another scarily good party option. Make like this street styler and pair it with cosy shearling to beat the chill.
A red coat makes everything better
The show is dark AF – both in its creepy storyline and overall colour scheme. But throughout, Sabrina’s ’fits manage to brighten things up with some fresh autumnal hues. In particular, her red coat cheers up even the most dreary of scenes, giving us a lesson in how outerwear can enliven our cold-weather lives. We’ll be throwing a cosy scarlet number over everything this season for a frightfully good look.
Hot under the collar
We must confess, the Weird Sisters are our new style icons. Yes, their ‘harrowing’ of Sabrina is pretty evil – but they look so good while they’re doing it. As well as dark lips and up-dos, the evil trio have reintroduced us to the power of the Peter Pan collar – and we’re not sure what we were doing without it. Wear a collar bib under jumpers and dresses already in your wardrobe and, hey presto: a tired looks gets transformed. Magic indeed.

MISSGUIDED:the december glossary – trends you need on your radar this month

All restraint is now out of the window. The tree is up, we have our festive jumpers on 24/7, we’re eating chocolate for breakfast, and our boss has had to ask us to remove our flashing tinsel earrings on more than one occasion (they’re definitely workwear appropriate, right?). Merry December, babe, <span class=”woR”>Christmas</span><span class=”woD”>Christmas or Christmas Day (Old English: Crīstesm?sse, meaning “Christ’s Mass”) is an annual festival commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ,[7][8] observed most commonly on December 25[4][9][10] as a religious and cultural celebration among billions of people around the world.</span> has arrived. To get your party season <span class=”woR”>style</span><span class=”woD”>Style is a manner of doing or presenting things, especially a fashionable one.</span> on lockdown, we’ve collected some style inspo from our fave #babesofmissguided, to give you some major outfit goals. Here are the top 5 trends to be seen in, check them out below:
Satin
Satin has been a key fabric for all of 2018, and it isn’t going anywhere as we move into autumn. The possibilities are endless with satin. Up your workwear style with a satin shirt and tailored suit combo, to show your office who’s the ultimate girl-boss. Or, if you’re after a more smart-casual vibe, why not throw on a loose satin shirt over jeans for the perfect in between. Got a big night out to go to? Satin can sort you out for that too! Try a satin dress with barely-there heels to look like you’ve got your life together even when you’re on the dancefloor at 3am.
Sequins
If you don’t own something sequinned then you need to catch up babe, because this is THE style to be seen in this Christmas. This look is all about everything from attention-grabbing embellished pieces to more subtle, classy co-ords. Wear a gorgeous sequinned jumpsuit, with barely-there makeup and barely-there shoes. Go plain with the rest of your <span class=”woR”>accessories</span><span class=”woD”>A fashion accessory is an item used to contribute, in a secondary manner, to the wearer’s outfit, often used to complete an outfit and chosen to specifically complement the wearer’s look.</span> to let the sparkle do the talking. As party season marches on, sequins and metallics are easy statement styles that you’ll be seeing more and more. Turn heads in a fringed, sequin co-ord, for a classic, eye-catching look.
Velvet
Does anything scream luxury like velvet? Invest in that luxe look for less with a velvet playsuit. Drape blazer styles give that “I’ll meet you in the billiard’s room” feel, so wear over a lacy bodysuit to vamp the look up to next level fire. The matching trousers finish off the outfit to perfection, leaving you looking head to toe woah. Want to free the leg? Velvet slip dresses are IN this party season. Wear yours with barely-theres and a matte lip. Or, a velvet blazer playsuit gives a smart but sexy impression that’s sure to turn some heads on your next night out. Feeling expensive but still having money left in your purse for shots? Yasss.
Red
Klaxon alert… There are 3 weeks ’til Christmas (not that we’re counting). That means that party season has officially begun. Take inspo from the most unlikely fashion icon ever, and make sure you’re repping Santa Claus’ favourite hue because if there’s one colour you should definitely be wearing RN it’s red. An LRD (that’s Little Red Dress, FYI) always looks AMAZE on a night out. Slick on a matching red lip to really turn up the heat. Or, go for a more subtle approach and wear a red bodysuit or top with your fave pair of jeans for ultimate cool-girl vibes.
Faux Fur
If you’re all about the outerwear this season (and who isn’t? it is f*cking freezing after all…), then you should definitely add a faux fur coat to your ‘drobe. Faux fur is probably the biggest statement you can make with your outerwear, and it’s sure to look amazing with pretty much anything you throw at it. Black and brown styles are toned-down enough for even the most casual day-time affair. Or, if you’re off out-out this winter, finish off your party dress or statement co-ord with a fab longline faux fur coat. Plus it’ll keep you super warm… Bonus.
