What would you be wearing out for dinner & cocktails tonight?

I have lots of lovely clothes, but am useless at putting them together, so end up in a few 'safe' outfits all the time. I'd just like to see some outfit examples of what other people wear!

There's no such thing as 'effortless' style - it takes hard graft ime. grin

Depends where you're going and who with...

Do you wear dresses? Pick a dress which suits you and then accessorise with jewellery, shoes and a clutch.

If not a dress do you have a jumpsuit?

I put a lot of effort into shopping and maintaining my wardrobe so that I don't have to work hard on a daily basis - I have lots of lovely clothes that suit me ready to throw on. That is what effortless means to me.

Ooh, yes, my black Hush jumpsuit looks nice and dressy with heels.

A tuxedo jacket to finish it off, and some great earrings.

What do you actually have to choose from?

Tell us what you feel most comfortable wearing, and what you would normally wear on a night out.

If you are willowy, 25 to 35, with a fab blow dry and super make up then ok, maybe you can chuck on a jumpsuit and heels.

If you are normal, however, no way.

Black coated skinnies with a 70s striped sparkly knit
Not much flesh
Heals always but suede
Hair done/undone
Coloured 'jewels'
But that takes some considerable effort
