Ideal Christmas party dress for hourglass figures picked out

Women with hourglass figures wondering what to wear at their upcoming work Christmas party have been given a helping hand by one celebrity.

Louise Roe, host of MTV show ‘Plain Jane’, wrote on dailymail.co.uk that ladies with this body shape should opt for a pencil skirt teamed with a buttoned up blouse and high-heeled brogues, adding that the outfit works with or without tights. Considering the temperature on Christmas party nights, it may be sensible to go for the former.

She said: “A structured pencil skirt in a warm autumnal colour that lands just below the knee, is one of the sexiest, most elegant pieces you can buy this season. It’s that Hitchcock blonde, femme fatale-meets Mad Men vibe that lends itself best to hourglass and pear-shaped figures.”

In terms of accessories, Ms Roe suggested that a chunky gold necklace could look good with the ensemble. She also offered tips for women with other body shapes, saying that top-heavy ladies should opt for a “busy” print dress, while pear-shaped revellers may want to look at “skater” dresses.

According to heatworld.com, for many people the office Christmas party is all about outshining other members of staff, as well as having some festive drinks and doing “things you regret”.
