How to be the Cool Girl at the Party, in 5 Easy Steps

The silly season is near upon us, which means one thing to us; party season style. Our usual MO for special occasion dressing is to let our inner bower bird off the chain, but this year we're adopting a more tactical, more grown-up and — dare we say it — cooler approach.
