The Ultimate Party Style Guide (With A Little Help From Our Fashionable Friends)

For our Christmas party shoot we wanted to photograph a group of women who epitomise chic, effortless and individual style – so who better than some of MyDaily's fashionable friends?

Styled by the infinitely talented Kristin Knox of The Clothes Whisperer and shot by Alistair Guy at the Elms Lester Painting Rooms, we asked everyone to bring the hero fashion item that will be getting them through the party season.

The result? The ultimate guide to Christmas party style – and without a deely bopper or scrap of tinsel in sight. Click on the gallery below to get inspired.

ALSO: See the backstage video and gallery from the shoot (including Kristin's ridiculously adorable Pomeranian Butters making herself at home in the designer shoes...)

With thanks to Lynsey and the team at Mac and Emma at the Blow Bar for making everyone look fabulously festive!
