Another headache before the party even starts is that it will often be straight after work. Leaving you little or maybe no time at all to change. A quick dash to the ladies maybe all the prep you get for one of the biggest work events of the year. But never fear, we at London Fashion Blog have been there, done that and worn the (oh so fabulous) t-shirt. So we have some great style tips for you to take the dread out and put the party vibe in.

First of all, if you can't change what you wear in the day then you need a good office to party outfit. A well fitting shift dress or trouser suit is always good for this. Second, pack a change of accessories. Wear flat shoes in the day and swap for killer party heels for a change of look. The same goes for bags, your usual work bag and lunch box can be left at your desk while you work a sparkly clutch. Take your make up bag into the ladies and don't just touch up but glam up. Wash off the old and give yourself smokey eyes and bold lips, you can get some great sparkly eyeshadows and blushers too for that little extra. If your unsure of a different look then practice at home, there are some great YouTube tutorials out there for whatever kind of look you want. So why not give it a go?

If your hairs always a flop by home time then plan ahead. Arm yourself with dry shampoo, straighteners, curling tongs, clips, whatever you need to get it back in shape. Or if your super organised then why not get to the hairdressers in your lunch break or nock off early and get a fab new style. However if you just want a fun look then glitter hairspray will make you stand out in the Christmas crowd.
