Now that we're in November, we can pretty well guarantee that your social calendar is starting to fill up quite nicely with dinners out, swanky soiree's, after-work drinks and all-round, general merriment right up to December 25th.
While we definitely don't need an excuse to get dressed up and get our glam on, the notion of SO MANY occasions looming on the horizon can be daunting for even the most avid of party-goers.
Sure, it can be pretty traumatic trying to find the one dress, chic co-ord set or the glittering cover-up that'll see you through all of your outings at which the guests don't overlap because, let's face it, you'd rather go into hibernation than have one person see you in the same outfit at TWO alternative parties. Are we right, or are we right?
Regardless of the glam occasion, we reckon we've found just what you're looking for. Yep, you might want to start penning that 'Thank You' card...
If you can tear your eyes off the gorgeous shots for just one second, you'll be pleased to hear you're looked at the latest instalment of ASOS Black; the brand's premium and party-ready collection that's just hit the site this week.
There are, of course, more dazzling beads and jumbo gems than you could shake a festive-stick at but what sets Black a part from the rest of the party collections on offer is its strong sense of shape, tailored twists and use of heavy fabrics.
From a-line satin frocks with unexpected cut-out backs and sixties-style shift dresses with jewel collars in stand-out pink to embellished bomber jackets and slouchy sequin separates, what you're looking at is the cool-girl's take on getting dressed up.
For those of you who are super-opposed to all things girly, you'll find your perfect going-out fix in Black's neoprene pencil skirts and matching sweaters adorned with black disc clusters; just add a pair of patent brogues and you'll still look the part on you're next girl's night out without having to step anywhere near body-con or high-heels.
Speaking of which, Black also has your footwear covered too with its offering of high-shine courts and brocade heeled loafers.
So, if you're looking for THAT buy that's going to earn you major style points (and many an envious glance) and your work Christmas bash, ASOS Black has totally got it covered.
RSVPing 'yes' to all those invites just got way more appealing; didn't it?
